Thank you to the author who gifted me this book in exchange for an honest review. You can see my full reviews and submit requests at my page here.
When I was originally asked to review BrewGirl, I was a bit hesitant. I usually shy away from anything involving romance, especially heterosexual romance. I decided to take on the challenge anyway and let me tell you, I am so glad I didn’t pass this one up.
Eliza David brings to life a strong, independent black woman in modern day Chicago. I found the female protagonist, Zoe to be very authentic. This woman is confident in her work, proud of her feminism and just snarky enough to hold her own in a male dominated industry. By the middle of the first chapter I found myself actually laughing out loud. Throughout Zoe’s journey I couldn’t help but fall more and more in love with her. When she meets Nick, a man brought into the company to help Zoe with a new marketing plan, she begins to question every moral and value she’d been brought up to believe. During the course of Zoe’s plight, I laughed with her, got angry with her and still had no idea what the final outcome would be until the very end.
I give kudos to the author here for providing us with such a believable and vivacious character. I’ll add, I love that Zoe has curves and “kinky” hair. She’s not super model pretty but she’s also not playing the “I’m so ugly” card that we so often find in female driven leads. If you’re looking for a good romance novel with a bit of snarky, crudeness and fun; BrewGirl is for you.
