A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Brewin' Up Love by Kaci Lane: Book Review

  *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

My new adult life is going as planned . . . until my boyfriend gets drafted.

Luckily it’s just baseball, not war.

Although I’m fighting pretty hard to make a long-term relationship transition seamlessly into long-distance.

One minute Nate and I are headed to college. The next he’s joining a minor league team in Atlanta. The only part of my life not changing is my family’s apple orchard and good old Apple Cart, Alabama.

Mary’s Diner and Piggly Wiggly are still the hub of downtown, and the General Store is still selling “everything from a cradle to a coffin.” (A rather morbid marketing tactic if you ask me.)

Part of me is ready to spread my wings and see what the rest of the world has to offer. Like the chocolate coffee Nate and I discovered recently. But Nate’s the other part of the equation—the solution to the “x” that was missing in my life. One that I pray never becomes an “ex.”

When we were only sixteen, we made a promise to love each other forever. That’s a promise I know I can keep.

But can that promise outlast us chasing separate dreams?

While unsuccessfully trying to learn Spanish for a decade, she has become fluent in Sarcasm, Southern Belle and movie quotes. She is married to a true Southern gentleman and has two young children, all of which help keep her humility in check.

Brewin' Up Love
is part of the Coffee Loft series. This is a multi-author series with all books involving a Coffee Loft coffee shop in some way. All books can be enjoyed as standalones or in any order. 

This is actually a prequel to the upcoming second book in the Single Southern Mamas series- Mom Ball. Brooke is apparently introduced in the first book of that series- Mom Squad. I had not read that book yet, so this was my first introduction to Brooke and her story.  Brooke and Nate are high school sweethearts. We meet them at the tail end of their senior year as they're about to graduate and head off to college. But their plans get changed when he is drafted to play baseball in the minor leagues, and they find themselves trying to make it work long distance. The story follows them as they try to navigate their new normal with his baseball career and the start of college. This is a super quick read. It could probably be easily read in one or two sittings... and it's definitely very much an introduction... they won't be getting their happily ever after just yet! We are given a peek at what is to come in Mom Ball and well, let's just say it definitely has me wanting to know what on earth happened in those years between this one and that one! Despite its short length, this was a really enjoyable read. It has some of that great country humor that I've come to love and expect from Kaci's books, and I really just found that I enjoyed these two together very much. I am looking forward to seeing the rest of their story very soon! (While I wouldn't say this ends on a cliffhanger exactly, their story again isn't quite finished yet. If that's something that would bother you, I might wait just a bit to read until that next book comes out!)

Brewin' Up Love is a closed-door romance with kisses only and no language.
