When my boss forced me on vacation to think about my career at the brewery, I wanted to scream. Then my sister suggested I spend the week at our dad’s cabin in the Poconos to think about what I really wanted.

Hoping for a relaxing week of fishing, hiking, and drinking lots of beer, I didn’t expect to find my sworn enemy already there. It was clear we had been setup by my me

There was such a great energy in this book. This was a perfect steamy and quick read. I love that it is Gemma who is the one who ghosts. There is some crazy banter and tons of enemies to lovers banter.
It has all the fun vacation feels. The chemistry really drives this story and makes for an awesome read.

This is the second book from the "MacGregor Brothers Brewing Company" series. Here we have the story of Gemma and Felix. I was really excited to read this book, because I knew that it will be as good as the first one.

The chemistry between Gemma and Felix was beyond the charts and all the banters were making it stronger and stronger. There was a plenty of erotic scenes between them and I managed to fill my eyes and heart with it 🔥🔥🔥.

I agree with Felix that his family comes first, but I am against

This contemporary romance is complicated with vibrant women looking to be loved and a single dad who can't commit. Gemma and Felix are a perfect match, with insane chemistry and sparks that light up the steamy scenes, but they have enemies to lovers and a lot of miscommunication. They are forced together by meddling friends. Will they hate each other or fall in love? Can they overcome life's responsibilities and stresses to find their happily ever after?

I love that author incorporations the sum

Trapped in love is the next book in the MacGregor Brothers Brewing Company series. While it is a sexy, steamy, and sometimes sweet romance with all the feels in all the right places, once again I am left feeling that the strength of Danica Flynn’s writing isn’t the romance but rather the character development as the story progresses. In the beginning, neither MC is worth writing home about.

Felix is overwhelmed by his circumstances and just a bit myopic. He has strong feelings for Gemma, but his

This is an enemies to lovers story where I felt like the heroine really embraced her enemy role. Gemma seemed really angry for a lot of this book. She was either angry with Felix, her actual “enemy”, or Avery her sister, or Declan her boss. She was always just mad at someone for whatever reason. I found her to be quite abrasive. Like she wouldn’t even listen to Felix when he wanted to apologize to her. She even says she was being an asshole. So stop? Just don’t be one? He has literally told you ...more

I received a free ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This story definitely had some really sweet moments and had you rooting for love, but the story also had some issues and things didn’t make sense.
The book is pitched as enemies to lovers and forced proximity—two tropes I usually like a lot. However, the enemies part is so short, most of the book is just spent…dating? It didn’t make a whole lot of sense why Felix wanted Gemma to think he was an asshole: it was not supported enough by his lack

Trapped in Love is the second book in the MacGregor Brothers Brewing Company. This is a fairly new author and after reading the first book, Accidently in Love, which I absolutely loved, I couldn’t wait for Gemma and Felix’s story. It was steamy forced proximity and enemies to lovers’ romance.
Gemma and Felix’s relationship started off rocky when he stood her up on their first date. After that, their work environment was full of conflict. Mischievously, Gemma’s sister encourages her to get away f

“Trapped in Love” is the second book in the MacGregor Brothers Brewing Company series that is packed with steam, banter and some heartfelt moments.

Gemma is Avery’s sister and has been working at the brewery as a bartender and unofficial social media manager. She’s had a love/hate relationship with Felix, the other bartender. When both go on vacation and with some scheming by Avery, the two end up sharing a lake house. The two have chemistry but stubbornness and secrets keep them from having a re

Gemma and Felix worked for the local bar attached to the MacGregor Brewing Company. Gemma used to be PR person for large city firm, but she and boss didn't click, making her doubt her abilities...so she became a bartender who also did all the brewery social media...She and fellow bartender Felix clashed after an initial interest from both, but when he stood her up for a date and never explained himself, he and Gemma sniped at each other...Declan MacGregor believes Gemma needs to take over the PR ...more

Trapped in love tells the story of Felix and Gemma. They've fancied each other from the moment that they first met, but after Felix stood Gemma up on what would have been their first date, they've been at each other's throats. When they both end up away on holiday together, it's clear that their obvious attraction is going to be impossible to ignore.
I did enjoy the romance between these two. They worked well together as a couple. The main reason that they can't be together though is because Feli

Unfortunately, he stood up her when they were set to go on their first date so she now loathes him. When the physical attraction gets the better of them both despite their constant bickering, well-meaning friends decide to set them up.

They decide to throw caution to the wind and have a vacation fling since they’re so hot for one another, but s

This is the second in the MacGregor Brothers Brewing Company series, it centers on Avery’s sister, Gemma and Felix who both work at the bar. Gemma and Felix have flirted often while working, he asked her out and stood her up. Every time they time they come in contact with each other, she is mean to him, hiding the hurt she feels. A total lack of communication from each of them causes the rift.

Felix has custody of his younger sister, their father is in prison. It broke up his last relationship,

3.5 stars. This was the first non-hockey romance I’ve read from this author (yes, I haven’t yet read the first in the series, though I’m going to because the blurb looks even more interesting than this one). Honestly, I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as the hockey romances, which surprised me, because small town is usually more my jam than sports romance. I think I found Gemma, the female lead, just too irrationally and unreasonably stubborn. I also found Felix, the male lead, too uncommunicative ...more

This is Gemma's story. We met Gemma in "Accidently in Love". Gemma is Avery's sister and can appear flighty. That isn't the case at all. Gemma is a vibrant and outgoing person. After a breakdown she came to stay with her sister. She gets a job has a bartender at her brother in laws brewery/pub. There she meets Felix (a fellow bartender). The chemistry between them is seen by everyone around them but themselves. Felix became Gemma's

A fun engaging read. Felix and Gemma are interesting, if they both just talked to each other, it would definitely be a different story. The lack of honest communication resulted in me being frustrated with them several times while reading. However, it was worth it to see how it all worked out. Gemma is very relatable, especially her fear of failure, even though everyone loves and supports her so much. The way Gemma’s sister meddled was perfect and made them spend time together, like they both wa ...more

Thank you to Danica Flynn for the ARC of this book! I’ve read all of her books and have loved them all.

They’re all very steamy and quick reads. This one follows a couple that has hooked up before, but the guy kind of ghosted the girl afterwards. He never explained himself, so now they’re more of enemies than exes…and they work together.

The “trapped in love” piece is close proximity, which y’all know I love. This book is spicy, fun, and romantic. Definitely add to your summer reading list!

Trapped In Love is book #2 in this series.

I definitely liked this story about Gemma and Felix! Both are bartenders at the brewery and a great match, which is obvious to everyone except themselves. They both need a nudge in the right direction, and that's what happens when they're “advised” to take a vacation, a setup by Gemma's sister. Ending up in a cabin by the lake, they decide to try and make the best of it. Gemma holds a grudge against Felix, based on the fact that he stood her up on their

I wanted to love this book, the story has good bones, the idea is great as is the writing but unfortunately as a whole it just fell flat for me.

I didn’t feel like I could connect to the characters or their relationship- yes there was definitely chemistry and the smexy scenes were spicy and well done but there was a ton of repetitive statements and events and I caught myself skimming.

As I mention the writing style is really good but unfortunately the story just missed the mark.

Felix and Gemma just can’t get it together. After Felix stands her up she’s angry, they have to work together. No explanations or apologies Gemma is over him. Then her family meddles and they end up spending time together. The attraction is high! So is the steam! Once they actually communicate things get better. Until they don’t! Sweet love story.

What a great story of Gemma and Felix. Quite colorful characters, quick to quit or not explaining themselves. Lots of hot chemistry (sexy hot sex scenes). Good continuity from her serie. I really enjoyed reading it.
