What fun is life without a little bit of trouble?

Retired supermodel and forever wild child Olivia Sweet is nothing but trouble. The youngest Sweet triplet is back in her hometown, but instead of a triumphant return it's a parade of humiliations. She's broke, homeless and dealing with the fallout from her scumbag ex-boyfriend publishing naked pictures of her to a revenge porn website.

Staid and stalwart veteran Mateo Garcia has seen more trouble than a man ever should in his lifetime. He's gone from pretty boy Marine to a small town police chief with a chip on his shoulder and scars covering the left side of his face. Now his former lover, Olivia, is back in town and living next door.

When the two are forced to work together to fix up the crumbling veterans' center, the sparks fly between the beauty and the man who sees himself as a beast. Not everyone is happy that Olivia is back home though and Mateo has to choose between the town who wants her gone and an uncertain future with a woman who he thinks could never love him...

What a great way to end the Sweet Salvation Brewery trilogy. Olivia and Mateo are both such strong and hot characters. My heart went out to them for all the difficulties they endured.

This is one "Sweet" read that needs to be on the top of everyone's MUST read list! Mateo and Olivia have scorching chemistry, red hot need, and a desire to be together whenever they can. That is until Olivia wants more.... Returning to Salvation broke and homeless was never in the plans for Olivia, yet here she is. What she never expected to find was Mateo. Broken, bitter and angry, he's no longer the man she knew. Yet the draw to be near him and help him heal is strong. Now if she can just get him to see himself as she does!! I highly recommend this for everyone!

Can they work through the past, heal the pain both emotional and physical. With the help of family and a few slices of pecan pie anything is possible

Interesting and enjoyable.

I loved this final Sweet triplet book. Olivia was the wild child growing up. She became a supermodel and left her hometown. She would still meet up with her secret crush Mateo and have secret wild sex with him in hotel rooms. His final deployment left him the only survivor with a scarred face. He returned home and became the chief of police. Olivia returns home to help out at the brewery. They reconnect and work through their issues on their way to their HEA. I loved the ending, very fitting.

Life experiences make the weak strong and the strong prove just how strong they really are. Matteo and Olivia both are carrying a lot of anger and bitterness on their shoulders. Never expecting to find themselves facing challenging circumstances each has to come to terms with the hand that's been dealt before they can face the future that never expected to find. The road less traveled can lead to a pot of gold. With a smidge of suspense and a splash of romance, Trouble on Tap by Avery Flynn is a great find. I received an ARC of this story for an honest opinion.

4 - "The time for playing with zippers is over." Stars! I absolutely loved the third book in the Sweet Salvation Brewery series. Olivia and Mateo’s story offered up everything I want to be reading in a book of this nature. Second chance love, built around a Beauty and the Beast kind of vibe, with a likeable couple set against a small-town backdrop with lots of recurring characters. A few years have passed since Mateo and Olivia have seen each other, their parting of ways was not on a happy note. Both are back in Salvation, neither one too happy about the fact. Mateo as the towns Police Chief, is well regarded, a veteran, carrying more than a few visible and invisible scars from his time serving his country. Olivia; the only thing the town cares about is her surname - Sweet as such she is tarred with the decades old brush that her family name is synonymous with. ”No one knows more about sinning than a Sweet.” Sure she’s known as the flighty one, being a former model and being the center of more than a few scandals will do that to a girl’s reputation. So coming back to town in the hopes of changing that perception offer more than a little battle of the ’uphill’ type. ”You are nothing but trouble.” ”Maybe you need some of that in your life.” Avery Flynn nailed this couple together perfectly, sexy with a little dirty, sassy and sarcastic together with a little vulnerability and emotion to back it up. Mateo I loved, Olivia was the kind of woman you’d want to be friends with. Their story and reconnection as lovers as a whole, not forgetting the inclusions of a three-legged cat, a homeless dog, and lots of escapades in-between was an enjoyable way to spend an evening. ARC generously provided by Rock Star PR via Netgalley, it was my pleasure to provide the above honest review.

Trouble on Tap is one o the best books I've read this year. Funny, hot and as sweet as Ruby Sue's famous pecan pie, the story of Olivia, the third Sweet sister is a tale about wounded warriors and finding your way back home. All the old cast puts in appearance and the story introduces a new set of characters to love including Olivia, a retired model and the third Sweet triplet, a mangy dog, a 3 legged cat and a very sexy new police chief. This is a great series and Trouble on Tap just might be the best one yet.
sferguson105 More than 1 year ago
So I absolutely love Avery's books, and Trouble On Tap definitely did not disappoint. The Sweet's have always had a bad reputation in Salvation, and Olivia has always embraced it. Although I feel like a lot of it is just bad luck on her part. She's an awesome heroine, who doesn't care if she stands out a bit, and goes after what she wants. Mateo. Where do I start with this stubborn, foolish man lol. After tragedy strikes, he's basically pushed most people away from him. He's hot, and his broody attitude just makes you want to break down the walls around his heart. The chemistry between these 2 is crazy intense, even with the changes both of them have faced in the past. It was awesome to see the two of them pull together to bring something good to Salvation, and to see Mateo come out of his shell. This book had me in tears, laughing, and wanting to punch someone (specifically Larry, or the Mayor). Maybe Avery will have Mateo follow through on his threat :) I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fantastic, sexy romance read

Amazing. Olivia Sweet is a retired model and Mateo is ex marine when they both end up back in their home town can they work together and also fight the attraction to each other. This is Avery Flynns third installment of the Sweet Salvation Brewery series and it is amazing.

This was probably my favorite of the sisters of Salvation stories! I love the chemistry between Olivia & Mateo! I hate to see this series end! Great book!
Pisceslyttle1 More than 1 year ago
Loved this book. There is nothing sweeter than a Sweet triplet. This is the third book in this series and I think it is my favorite. Olivia and Mateo have known each other since they were children. Olivia is a model and Mateo is a Marine, whom whenever they are in the same city hook up for some friends with benefits action. The last time they are together Olivia asks for more out of the relationship and Mateo tells her no and she leaves. Three weeks later he is injured in an explosion and refuses to see her when she attempts to see him in the hospital. The story skips ahead three years when she returns home to her family unemployed and broke. She first sees Mateo again as he finds her car stuck in the middle of the road. His reaction to her is not a pleasant one. Mateo is hurt, angry and well kind of a recluse. He wants nothing to do with anyone especially Olivia. Olivia has always had feelings for Mateo but will he let her back into his life for the long haul this time.

ARC requested through Netgalley, and kindly provided by the publisher, in exchange for a honest review. This was my first visit to the town of Salvation, and I have to admit I am highly disappointed in myself for not making the visit A LOT sooner. With this being the third book in the series, I was concerned I'd be missing out on pertinent details since I was reading the books out of order, but I can honestly say that after reading this book I didn't get that feeling at all, if anything, I am now even more eager to read the first two installments in the series. After being labeled the town outcast Olivia Sweet leaves home to become a famous model, after a few years of success on the catwalk, she is once again rejected by her "town" and sent packing. The only thing that makes her feel whole in life is a relationship she has with fellow hometown-er Mateo Garcia. While their relationship isn't exactly a conventional one, she stills tries to hold onto it, in hopes that they can have a normal life together, only once again to be rejected. Mateo is a soldier, a man of honor, and a man that has no intention of ever being tied down. And while he cares for Olivia, he knows that he just isn't the right man for her, so when she proposes they take their sexual relationship to the next level, he decides rejecting her is the most honorable and safe thing he can do for her, not realizing that he is making the biggest mistake of his life. So, once again Olivia picks herself up and moves on, only to be cast away again. With nothing left to lose she decides to move back home to Salvation, in hopes of redeeming herself and finally finding some well deserved happiness, only to come face to face with the man her cast her aside so many years ago... This story was a real treat to read, and a even more beautiful one to watch unfold. To watch Olivia suffer so many personal losses in her life, and then see her dust herself off and get back up again was not only empowering, but also a true testament of human spirit and strength. Ms. Flynn has truly outdone herself once again with the character development in this story! I highly recommend you take a little time to visit the town of Salvation and meet these amazing characters that Ms. Flynn has created, you will not be disappointed!!

I like all three stories. Their great, sexy, romantic and very interesting stories. Each stories are unique. I can't wait to read more of your books.

I liked Olivia, and felt sorry for her. She has loved Matteo for a long time, and I was disappointed with how he treated her. I understand he went thru a lot, and now he is disfigured, and feeling guilty about his unit, but that was not her fault and he should not have taken it out on her. I was happy that the triplets were together again, and you notice their love. This was ending to series, and I am sad to see the Sweets go, I wanted to know what Miranda and Logan had.

Reviewed by Angela and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog Ah, the last of the Sweet triplet sister comes home to Sweet Salvation. After successful years in the modeling business, Olivia Sweet’s time of fame and wealth is over. She is broke, and has nothing left to show for, but she is determined to help her sisters with the brewery they had inherited in the town she once hated. However, the homecoming is not all that sweet. The town still had it in for her, and it will take a whole lot to convince them that she is not who they suspect her to be. To add to her troubles, the man she had once had an “understanding” with is now the town’s police chief. Their relationship was nothing more than just wild one-night-stands, but the secrecy of their past is threatened. Someone has proof of their activities and threatened to make the videos public. Mateo being an ex-marine is determined to help Olivia out of this mess and in the process building a relationship he never wanted to start from the beginning. I love this series as a whole. Avery Flynn succeeded to deliver a very SWEET small town romance. She delivered romantic stories that were heartfelt yet light hearted. I enjoyed the small-town vibe she gave the series and adding a hint of military and suspense to this story was a good move. It was a good fit for the overall plot. Olivia and Mateo’s story was not my favorite of the trio, but I liked them plenty. Avery Flynn gave them a well deserve happy-ending. Her execution to finally give the Sweet sisters the acceptance they deserved was very satisfying as well. Ms. Flynn and this series, in particular, remains on my small-town recommended list. I’m hoping to read more of her work soon.

A fun, sweet and hot, small-town romance! I loved it! "So invite me in." Now that way lay trouble. "What are you, a vampire that needs an invitation?" "Worse. I'm a Sweet." TROUBLE ON TAP by Avery Flynn was a wonderful finale to the author's Sweet Salvation Brewery series! Even though it's the third book in the series, it could be enjoyed as a standalone if that is your preference. However, if you do that, you'd miss out on the two highly entertaining preceding books featuring the other two Sweet sisters. TROUBLE ON TAP is the story of the third Sweet sister, free spirited Olivia Sweet, and troubled ex-Marine Mateo Garcia. I loved both the hero and the heroine. It's a second chance at love for them. They shared a past, but would they have a future? Their story reminded me of a modern day retelling of The Beauty and The Beast. Olivia was sexy and beautiful. She was an ex-Victoria Secret runway model and attracted trouble like sugar attracts flies. She was most definitely the wild child of the triplets and her shenanigans drove Mateo crazy. Mateo was the smokin' hot male lead. He's a permanently scarred and troubled ex-Marine who was nicknamed the Casanova of Salvation before he encountered the roadside bomb that took out his buddies and left him disfigured with a huge chip on his shoulder. Now he's the police chief in Salvation, a virtual hermit when he's off work, and not happy in the least that Olivia Sweet is back to distract him to no end and remind him of what he used to be. Olivia and Mateo were each strong yet vulnerable. Their chemistry was of the intensely hot, set-your-sheets on fire kind. Their dynamics were enhanced by two darling non-human supporting characters - a three-legged cat and a nameless dog who both tugged at my heartstrings. All the books have taken place in the small town of Salvation, Virginia and fans of the series know all about the Kitchen Sink Diner there with Ruby Sue's famous pecan pie on the menu. This book discloses the secret ingredient of that pie! I'm not giving it away - you'll have to read this book to find out what makes that pie rock! BUT, if you want to make your pecan pies the talk of your town, you need to pick up this book! I lapped up this well-paced conclusion of the Sweet Salvation Brewery series. I've been a fan of the series from the get-go and am thrilled to report that the epilogue was perfection. It brought together all the triplets and tied their stories up neatly with a tidy, beautiful bow. Just thinking about it now still makes me smile! If you love fun, sweet and hot, small town romances, I highly recommend that you delve into Avery Flynn's Sweet Salvation Brewery series. Each of the books has been a treat!

Trouble On Tap by Avery Flynn is a fantastic read. Ms Flynn has given us a well written book. Mateo and Olivia's story is loaded with drama, action, sexy bits and of course, Ms Flynn's own brand of humor. Trouble On Tap is book 3 of the Sweet Salvation Brewery series, but can be read as a stand alone. I look forward to reading more from the talented and always humorous Avery Flynn in the future. Trouble On Tap is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

4 star The story has laughs, secrets, pain, suspense, twist & turns, and heartbreak. I would recommend reading the below before this book: Enemies on Tap (Sweet Salvation Brewery, #1) Hollywood on Tap (Sweet Salvation Brewery, #2) This is Olivia and Mateo’s story. Years ago Olivia was in love with Mateo but he rejected her feelings. Now she is back in town after a scandal. She is broken and humiliated. Mateo is not the same man she knew. He is harder. He knew he made a mistake when he turned down Olivia. But he has scars and he thinks no one would want him. But with the sparks these two throw off when they are together it’s only a matter of time before he believes she still wants him. But can she chance another rejection? Or will Mateo finally want her no matter what? I recommend this book.

I haven't read the other books of this series, so I can't really compare this one with the others (which is in my opinion even better). A really catching story meets characters that are deeply developed- this is what makes a good story. Because of this is it was pretty easy to connect with the story. This book is pretty intense....and hot as hell! It made pretty much fun as the characters are challenging which makes this book even more refreshing. There were just some moments during which I hoped for a little bit more conversation. But sometimes, actions speak louder ;)

I absolutely loved Trouble on Tap by Avery Flynn. This was my very first novel that I have read by her ... the third in the series, and it was absolutely delicious! The scenes were hot, hot, hot! The characters were absolutely flawless, delicious and absolutely delectable. I loved Mateo and Olivia, the instant chemistry and connection between the two was sensuous and mind blowing. Flynn has a knack for writing steamy, love scenes. She grabs your attention at the very start of the book with her delectable introduction and then captures it within the first few pages and will have you hook, line and sinker. I couldn't put down this book and was reading it all night! I loved the last book of the series, now I am working my way back - reading the second book.

Fleeing home penniless, humiliated and jobless, Olivia ends up facing her one true love - Mateo. Trouble is Mateo was injured in the line of duty and is scared inside and out. This book has one of the best get the girl back at all costs scheme - I wont give it away but is it priceless.

What a great story! This is the third story in the Sweet Salvation Brewery series. It can be read as a stand alone, but why? This series is great! This story follows Olivia, the Sweet triplet known as the wild one, and Mateo. Olivia and Mateo have a past but can they have a future when he keeps pushing her away? The story is well written and fast paced. I really enjoyed this story and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a fun romance. Definitely check it out! I was given a copy of this book for a honest review.

Trouble On Tap by Avery Flynn is the third and final installment in her Sweet Salvation Brewery series. It was a perfect ending to this series. Olivia Sweet was considered the "wild" Sweet and left Salvation swearing never to return. Growing up she had a huge crush on Mateo Garcia, her best friend's big brother. The crush led to many clandestine meetings while Mateo was in the Marines. She fell for him but he wasn't willing then to have more than a casual relationship. It broke Olivia's heart but she moved on. Now life has thrown another curveball and she's back in Salvation - she's broke and humiliated thanks to her ex-boyfriend. She's a fighter and is determinded to contribute to the brewery by being the brewery's Publicity Rep. Mateo Garcia was handsome and determined to get out of Salvation when he grew up. He joined the Marines and didn't think he would ever return to Salavation. He was never sure that he would come back from a mission. He's back now after enduring recovery from horrific injuries from a mission. He is scarred both inside and out and prefers to live mostly as a recluse. Until Olivia comes back into his life and then the "trouble" begins. Readers get to visit with Miranda, Natalie, Ruby Sue and the mean-sprited Mayor. Their is lively dialogue, hot and smexy scenes with Olivia and Mateo, and many deeply emotional moments with Mateo and Olivia. This was a very enjoyable read and Avery did a fantastic job in sharing this second-chance love story with so many emotions - laughter to tears to smiles at the HEA.
