HAPPY RELEASE DAY EXCERPT POST ~ HOLLYWOOD ON TAP by AVERY FLYNN

Title: Hollywood on Tap (Sweet Salvation Brewery #2)

Author: Avery Flynn

Date of Publication: November 3rd 2014









For years, Sean O’Dell has hidden his past as a Hollywood heartthrob from everyone at the Sweet Salvation Brewery. However, the arrival of nosey efficiency expert Natalie Sweet threatens the status quo. It doesn’t help that with her glasses, buttoned-up sweaters and always pulled-back hair that she’s uncovered one secret already: His attraction for hot librarian types.

Natalie has had enough of the strong-and-silent Sean submarining her efforts to change the brewery for the better. She’s ready to do whatever it takes to make her vision a reality, even if that means taking down the pig-headed and too-hot-for-his-own-good brewmaster.

Sizzling attraction battles stubborn determination as Natalie and Sean go head to head in a battle that’s anything but business as usual.

The walk–in cooler stood twenty feet away.

So frickin’ close that Sean O’Dell could practically smell the flowery green hops and feel them crumble in his palms.

The weight on his chest eased with each step. He was going to close out the day without having yet another conversation with Natalie about lean manufacturing or whatever the hell system the
people at Toyota invented. She’d been hounding him all day to sit down with her and go over her crazy–ass plans to streamline the brewery process. As if the craft and creativity of making beer could be distilled down to numbers on a spreadsheet. The woman was as annoyingly persistent as she was hot—both were a distraction he didn’t need in his life right now, not with the Southeast Brewers Invitational coming up.

But for the next thirteen hours, he wouldn’t have to hear any of her harebrained recommendations. He reached for the cooler’s door handle and turned it, noticing as he did so that it wasn’t latched.

He yanked open the door before his brain processed the ants dancing up his spine.

The motion triggered the cooler’s sensor activated overhead lights. His gut dipped and he
clenched his jaw.

Natalie stood shivering on the other side of the cooler’s threshold, clutching her damn clipboard to her chest.

He stopped cold. “What in the hell are you doing here?”

“Waiting for you in your favorite hiding spot.” Her teeth chattered. “Do you really think I don’t
know your secrets?”

God knew exactly how long she’d been lying in wait for him, but it was enough time for her button nose to turn red and her glasses to frost over. His gaze slid to the right. The temperature gage read twenty–six.

A smarter man would have shut the door and walked away, let her deal with the consequences of
spending time in the Sweet Salvation Brewery’s cooler without a coat. But no one—from his asshole of a father to his always–hungry–for–more agent to his on–set teachers—had ever accused him of having an overabundance of brains.

Instead, he whipped off his thick hoodie and pulled it over her head. Not bothering to get her arms through the sleeves, he wrapped her up— clipboard and all—inside its fleece warmth. The hood drooped over her head, covering everything down to her nose. Before she could squeak out a noise over the chattering of her teeth, he wrapped an arm around her narrow waist and tossed
her over one shoulder like a sack of grain. Her cold seeped into him, pouring over his body and making him shiver.

“P–p–put me down.” She made a halfhearted attempt to wriggle free.

“No.” He spun around and kicked the cooler door shut with his boot heel.

“This is unseemly.”

Her body may be half a degree away from being a snow cone, but holding her like this had him
running a few degrees warmer. “Yep.”

“You can’t just carry me around like this,” Natalie huffed against his lower back. “I’m your
boss.”

“I can and you are.” But he was bound to forget that last part if she kept squirming against him. Hell, he couldn’t seem to remember that fact while he was alone at night staring at his bedroom ceiling and imagining how those damn little buttons would open under his touch.

Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
