SOME LIKE IT HOPS
A Girl Power Romance Collection Novella
Charlie Harper grew up surrounded by men, so making a name for herself in the male-driven world of craft brewing should be a piece of cake. But when she finds the perfect warehouse location for her first brewery, she learns that someone else has their eye on the site. And Griffin Lane, CEO of the largest and fastest growing craft beer company on the west coast, doesn’t give up easily.
At first glance, Griffin’s just as ruthless and arrogant as the reputation preceding him. Money can’t buy happiness? Whoever said that clearly didn’t have enough of it. Cash is king, and Griffin’s ready to pay whatever it takes to procure the next location for Fast Lane Brewing.
Too bad Charlie can’t be bought.
Going toe-to-toe with Griffin is easy at first; Charlie’s more than capable of dealing with hard-headed men. But something is brewing here and it’s not just the hops. As their attraction to one another builds, the battle over real estate fades to the background, and soon, neither one of them can ignore their chemistry.
He’s an Upper West Side playboy with a god complex.
She’s a single mom with zero time for bullsh*t.
Fresh from divorce, Maryn Connelly has just moved out of the only home she’s known for the past twenty years, relocated to the beach, and reentered the work force. With her daughter home from college for the summer and a new job she adores, Maryn certainly doesn’t have time for a gorgeous man—as arrogant as he is sexy and over ten years her junior—to swoop into her life and stir up trouble. But that’s just what happens when her daughter secretly places an ad to rent out the casita behind their beach house and Manhattan’s most notorious playboy shows up at the door.
After recently inheriting the fastest growing investment firm in New York, Ridge Westcott has a publicity problem. The latest notch in his bedpost was the daughter of a senator and barely eighteen, and now his Board of Directors wants to vote him out. So when his PR team sends him across the country so they can do damage control, Ridge ends up renting a beachside casita from a woman whose no nonsense attitude is just what he needs—and apparently exactly what he wants.
Their chemistry is undeniable, but when sparks fly, more than just the bed sheets could go up in flames.
