Paradise Hops by Liz Crowe

Lorelei (Lori) Brochton is a hot mess.  Strong-willed, German speaking heir to her family's brewing company---and dealing with the aftermath of brutal sexual assault.  She has survived long enough, but is not ready to live again (and by live I mean have mind blowing sex) until she meets him, and him.

Enter Garrett Hunter, the king of high perfectionism.  His calamitous youth burgeoned a man of control, organization and destiny.  He falls head over heals for Lori, instantly.

Then there's Eli Buchanan, rogue brew master.  He breaks hearts and lives everywhere he goes, and he's got tattoos.  Yeah, he wants Lori, but it's not about love, or is it...

The stage is set for a drama filled romance filled with Lori's ennui. She gets her life back, but is torn between her own perception of being controlled by Garrett, and her ultimate desire to control the actions of Eli.  Stuck in the middle.  No Spoilers, but this book left the formula a few times which kept me reading (but honestly, I would've finished it anyway because I am just like that).  Ultimately, in everything we do, read, hear or say there is a message that is greater than what we would expect.  The message I got was:

Maybe things were supposed to be one way, but right now they are not, so deal.
