Bohemian Girl

(Men of Lovibond #1)

3.97  ·  Rating details ·  2,933 ratings  ·  409 reviews
This Alabama bad boy thought one dirty weekend with her would be enough.
He was wrong.

Falling in love is out of their control in this red-hot romance from New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Georgia Cates.

A faceless name.
That’s all she was when I agreed to play a part in deceiving her.
And then the unexpected happened.

We met.

I yearn for her

So even though it is a series you should be fine reading each one as a standalone. Tap end with an epilogue. (less)

3.5 Stars

Told in dual POV, 1st person, it’s the first installment in the "Men of Lovibond" series and can be read as a standalone. Once upon a time I loved reading her books and with this one, despite not loving it, but still it was enjoyable. It’s angst-free with no drama and in general an easy read. Albeit I should add the second half dragged a bit maybe because it became repetitive, nothing happened. Overall, I had fun reading it and hope you like it as well!

Pass me a cold brew because Georgia Cates has me downing and devouring her newest release, TAP. As a big fan of Ms. Cates, I couldn't wait to get my hands on TAP and let me just say that Ms. Cates DELIVERED big time in her newest sexy romance series.

This was my first book by this author and it won't be my last! This series is about three men who own a brewing company! In Book one we meet Tap who is a man whore! He has his reasons though, and when I found out why he had walls up that were a mile high, I could totally understand. When he comes across his business partners sister though; all bets are off! He's attracted to her right off the bat, and suddenly the rules he has created for his world are wiped away! Will he be able

Now living in Birmingham, Alabama, Lucas stays very busy with work, family, friends, & the single life. He doesn't do commitments with women. One night is all he is willing to give. He has be

Lets get into the point. I can not connect with the heroine. At all. I do not understand her so called bohemian character. I also do not understand why the hero so scared about dating the heorine. Yes he made promise to her brother not to date his sister. Its suppose to be forbidden. For what reason it is forbidden??

I listen about 60% of the book and i give up. I hate shelfting book under DNF.

Tap reminded me why I’ve always loved romance novels. It’s romance at its purest form and with such a well-balanced mix of friendship and love; you couldn’t help but fall in love with every word. It’s rare for me to find a book that holds everything I crave most when reading, but Tap did it for me. It isn’t just ‘a romance novel’, really, but rather a journey of two soul mates finding each other when they most need that connection. A second chance at a life that they never were brave eno ...more
I love to lose myself in a proper love story and this had the lot - the forbidden allure of his best mate's gorgeous and quirky sister, a well paced attraction and hot smut with likeable characters and plenty going on. To my delight, nobody did anything stupid or out of character and, even though the angsty bit made my gut roil with stress for a bit, it's great to be so invested in a story to be affected that much. I actually relished that delicious little bite of angst. I've really enjoyed this ...more

Well miss Georgia Cates has done it again!!!

Tap is the first book in her new Lovibond Brewery Series. It is a great start and I am so looking forward to reading the other books in this series. Tap is a standalone contemporary romance. It is a forbidden love story of a man falling in love with his best friend's sister.

As with all of Georgia's books, she sucked me into this one and held on until I reached the e

:: 4 Pretty Little Stars ::

This is the first book in the Lovibond series which features 3 sexy men, all of whom craft delicious beer …. All in all, I found this book to be very sweet, very sexy, and a VERY good time! I loved meeting Lucas and Lawrence and found their relationship to be extremely sweet. This is especially true considering Lucas’s background and a lot of pain he had to endure when he was only a teenager. But Lawrence (aka Wren) has had her share of trouble too.

“Every woman needs protecting from Tap.” I’m probably going to regret asking this question. “Where did that name come from?” The corners of Ollie’s mouth curl. “It’s a double meaning. He loves beer on tap. But he loves tapping ass more.”

Tap just happens to be my very first Georgia Cates book. I have heard such wonderful things about the Beauty From Pain books that when I saw this one, I snatched it up. Finally, a chance to read Ms. Cates. I have to be honest, I was not blown away but I did enjoy the book.

I loved to story of Lucas (Tap) and Lawrence (Wren). They were 2 perfectly imperfect people who, despite fighting their attraction and their demons, couldn't stay away from one another. They worked at their relationship, through distance, Wren's brother and their pasts, but they knew the one thing they couldn't live without was the other, even if that meant spending months apart to figure it all out.

I liked the had potential, but it was predictable. I did not like the writing. I couldn't connect with the story or characters. Half the time I couldn't tell who was talking. There was a lot of potential for angst, but every time, the incidents passed without drama. I will not be continuing with this series. ...more

I first fell in love Georgia Cates writing when she gave us the yummy Jack Henry. So when I saw she was giving us a new hottie, this time a beer maker rather than a wine maker I just knew I had to check this series out and so glad that I did.

Lucas Broussard, a.k.a. Tap, has gone into the beer making business with his two friends Porter and Ollie. Ollie (a.k.a. Stout) has found himself in trouble and has asked Lucas to help him out by covering for him with is sister, Lawrenc

Beer. Hot boys. Accents. Best friends. BEARDS!!! What more can a girl ask for? When Georgia Cates writes it, nothing!!

I’m falling on my knees for Tap. Tap, Stout and Porter run Lovibond, a local brewery which is taking off. A huge local event of beer brewers is coming to their town and they’re sponsoring it. Then Stout runs into to trouble and steps away for a bit, and Tap meets Lawrence...

The saddest discovery you can ever make is realizing you’ve fallen truly, madly, and deeply in love with a

Reading any book by Georgia Cates is like taking a fresh breathe of air on a beautiful, sunny day. It’s refreshing and invigorating!!! And Tap is just another proof of that.

Lucas “Tap” Broussard will have you begging for him to be your next book boyfriend. He is all man and his personality doesn’t make him look like a dominate ass. I think Georgia has definitely written one of the best male characters with Tap. He’s rugged, masculine and his mannerisms will surprise the hell out of you.
Basically if you want a super cheesy, smutty read with little to no drama, this is the one for you. The entire story was really predictable and there was pretty much no conflict. The MCs are in their late twenties/early thirties but you could've told me they were in their early to mid-twenties and I wouldn't have thought otherwise. A lot of the sex just became so repetitive I ended up skimming them. This seems to be a regular occurrence with this author's other books so this will probably be the ...more

BOHEMIAN GIRL by Georgia Cates is the First book in A Southern Girl Series. This is the story of Lawrence 'Law' Thorn and Lucas Broussard. This book was previous named 'Tap' and the first book in the 'Men of Lovibond Series'. But the author has taken this book and the series back under wing to revamp the cover along with a rename. I was happy that this was done because I had missed the previous series so this is my chance to now enjoy this series. Lawrence is the sister of Oliver who is a partne ...more

I'm a huge fan of Georgia Cates. Her writing is amazing and I always trust her to deliver engaging stories. As always, this book was really well-written.

The means to an end, sows the seeds to two hearts undoing. Bohemian Girl was a wonderful introduction to a new author for me. Cates tears up the emotional canvas with characters that at times prove hard to love, but never easy to forget. Lucas and Lawrence are like fire and ice. The heat is there, but so is the need to be wary. Although not always beautiful, Bohemian Girl is a captivating look into the heart at it's most vulnerable and volatile moments.

4 solid stars for Brou and Wren's book! I love this author and this story was wonderful! From the writing, to the plot and characters.... everything just flowed so nicely. I loved both MC's separately and I loved them together. Brou or Tap is the sexy, closed off business partner of Wren's brother. Wren is a sweet and compassionate hippie chick that loves her family and friends as well as her little business she puts most of her time into. I had to put this book down a few times because life and ...more
