Lisa loves her job in the male-dominated beer sales industry and has built a reputation as one of the best. But she dreads the "ride along" days when beer companies sends their least experienced representatives to see how she operates—until her one bad day turns into something more with The Rookie.

Undercover for his own brewery, Trent has heard of Lisa's prestigious sales prominence and sets out to see for himself—to show Lisa what he is capable of—in business and pleasure. Their attraction leads them to an amazing encounter in the most unlikely place, but will Lisa accept Trent's true identity once it's revealed? Or will she finally surrender and reach out for the unexpected?

Lisa's reputation in the brewing industry is hardcore. She's a go-getter, a hard-worker and determined to make it in the male dominated world. Having a bad morning already, Lisa finds out she has to take a rookie vendor representative on her route. Not thrilled with the situation, she quickly changes her mind when she sees how attractive Trent Franklin is.

Midway through their day, the passion erupts. Both felt the attraction earlier and when Trent initiates the first move, Lisa follows suit. It isn't until they're at Lisa's next establishment and contact that she finds out the truth about Trent. He's one of the founder's of the Winter Street Brewing Company (WSBC), basically her boss. Lisa almost freaks out until she finds out that Trent has wanted her since the moment she finds out he saw her that morning and make a date for later that evening.

Crowe's writing in this first in the series of the WSBC is remarkable. She has you cheering for the duo throughout the story. The depth of the characters is noteworthy and made it easy to understand why they fell for each other instantly. The HEA ending made the powerful read worthwhile and I would recommend this short to erotic readers. Crowe's ability to twist a sex scene into something more dramatic is applauded.
