Corked and Tapped:
Because the best stories never start
with someone eating a salad.
“I am officially divorced.” She had never been so elated as she slapped the final papers on the bar and slid onto the stool. Did the bartender’s eyebrows lift higher than usual? She hoped so, because she’d been waiting a year to make her move on him. From the look on his face, she wasn’t the only one who’d been waiting.
I am loving these Novellas, they are fun, amusing, sexy and kindle melting.
Brooklyn’s divorce is finalized after a year of agonizing negotiations. She’s looking forward to flirting with Owen, the bartender at Corked and Tapped. Owen has become a friend, listening to her ups and downs over the past year.
Little does she know, Owen has been waiting for this day as well. He doesn’t flirt with married women, not even separated ones. Now that she’s free, Owen definitely brings his A game.
This is a favorite scene.
She watched his arm as he poured, admiring his thick hair, groomed beard, and the tattoo sleeve that swirled around his forearm. It extended up under his short-sleeved, black T-shirt with the Corked and Tapped logo. She had never seen the rest of his tattoo, nor did she have any idea how many he had, but she had spent the better part of the last year wishing she could.
Too bad her flirting game was pretty rusty; Owen probably had no idea she was attracted to him. Besides, she couldn’t be sure he would care. Just because he was nice to her didn’t mean he wanted to sleep with her. After all, he was nice to everyone who came into Corked and Tapped. Tips would suck otherwise.
When she lifted her gaze to his, she found him smirking again. And she got bold. Today was the first day of the rest of her life. It was time to put herself out there. “When are you going to show me the rest of your tat?”
He glanced over his shoulder at the old-fashioned clock hanging above the bar and turned back to her. “Mike frowns on naked chests behind the bar, but I’m taking a break in about half an hour,” he responded, shocking her speechless.
Owen laughed as he turned away from her and moved down to the other end of the bar.
Holy shit. Was he serious? Could she be so lucky?
She squirmed in her seat, watching his profile as he worked, wondering if there was any chance he was serious.

Every one notices the heavy duty flirting going on, and Mike, the owner, warns Brooklyn that Owen is not an interim type boyfriend. Even Jade notices the intense heat and makes some comments.
I laughed, gasped and almost cried as this sexy little tale unfolds. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!
