REVIEW – STOUT (Lovibond, #2) by Georgia Cates

Stout Cover Art_Smaller - Copy


Craft beer and the sexy men who brew it.

A beautiful neighbor. A complete stranger. That’s all she was when I moved in next door.

Adelyn Maxwell is my neighbor but she’s no girl next door. The more I come to know her, the more I discover she’s a good girl with a lovely dark side. And maybe I don’t want her to stay on her side of the fence.

I want to disturb the rhythm of her pulse.

I want to see the way her hair spills on the bed when she lies beneath me.

I want her to teach me the dirty pretty things she desires behind closed doors. And she does.

But mostly I want to leave my mark on the most intimate, untouched part of her body. Her heart.

A seemingly insignificant intersection of our lives neither of us recalls suddenly becomes a pivotal moment in our future. We aren’t strangers at all. And our paths aren’t crossing for the first time.

These twists and turns of fate will become one of two things: a wrecking ball to tear us apart or the connection to bond us together forever.

Oliver Thorn aka Stout is a gorgeous single guy from Savannah. He lives in Birmingham, AL. & owns a business called Lovibond Brewery with his two friends Tap & Porter. Oliver buys his first real home, & on moving day he gets a warm welcome from his new neighbor Adelyn Maxwell. She lives right next door & is a stunning redhead. Redheads are Oliver’s weakness, & when she offers him a basket of baked treats as well, he is smitten with her & wants to get to know this hot new neighbor.

-Oliver Thorn is a beautiful man.

-“You make me laugh. Smile. Feel. I like being with you. I like who I am when we’re together. I like…you.”

Adelyn Maxwell is a preacher’s daughter who has been a little closed off to men lately after a traumatic experience with an ex. She becomes friends with her new neighbor Oliver & they begin spending a lot of time together. They just really hit it off & find it easy to confide in one another. They discover they actually have a lot in common, that is until they take things to the next level & in the bedroom. Turns out their tastes in the bedroom don’t exactly mesh. Adelyn leans toward the kinky a bit more than Oliver. Can this sexy redhead teach this tattooed hottie a few things? Things get a bit awkward & then extremely hot!!! They discover they’re paths have crossed before & we get some drama as they also try to overcome some emotional baggage from past relationships. As usual I love Georgia Cates writing! So excited for Porter’s book next! 😀


-I’m yours.

-“You are my world. My everything.”
