“Mia Hopkins is an imaginative author who doesn’t take the easy road to a formulaic book.”—USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog
 
My name is Eduardo Rosas, but for as long as I can remember, everybody’s called me “Trouble.” Back in prison, I used to dream about running away from my family’s gang, East Side Hollenbeck, and finally getting my life together. But I’ve been out for six months now and I keep screwing up. No job, no prospects—except for this idea my older brother, Salvador, has to open a craft brewery in the hood. Crazy, right? Está loco.
 
As much as I want to help him out, I can’t stay focused. My biggest distraction? Carmen Centeno, a girl from the neighborhood. She’s a chef—smart, tough, and sexy as hell. Way classier than me. So to get her back in my bed, I have to convince her I’m not the trash everybody says I am.
 
The pressure’s rising. Carmen deserves a man she can depend on. And when the ghosts of my past rise up, I’ll have to outsmart them—or lose my shot at a future with the only woman who believes in me.
 
The Rosas brothers will return in Tanked!
 
Praise for the first Eastside Brewery novel, Thirsty

Thirsty held me captivated from its first page to its last with its heartrending, raw and beautiful story. . . . Mia Hopkins sublimely blends blunt realism with romantic fantasy and sharp-eyed social observation and delivers a happy-ever-after that is much more than a neat conclusion to a love story. . . . A singular reading experience.”—USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog

“A powerful, honest look at love as both a motivation and a risk . . . A beautiful, authentic look at the challenges of starting over, the terrifying hope of the future—and the dangerous lure of the past.”The Washington Post

“A sizzling, emotionally intense story that is both gritty and heartwarming, an addictive page-turner that will stay with me for a long time to come.”New York Times bestselling author Cathryn Fox

A gangster hiding from his past. A single mom fighting for her future. Can she show this bad boy the man he’s meant to be?

“A powerful, honest look at love as both a motivation and a risk.”—The Washington Post

“Heartrending, raw and beautiful.”—USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog

My name is Salvador Rosas. Back in the barrio, my past is written on the walls: ESHB. Short for East Side Hollenbeck, my father’s gang—my gang. Hell, it’s a family tradition, one that sent both my brothers away. They used to call me “Ghost” because I haunted people’s dreams. Now I’ve got nothing going for me except a hipster gringo mentoring me in a new career. An ex-con making craft beer? No mames.

Still, people in this neighborhood look out for one another. That’s how I became Vanessa Velasco’s unwelcome tenant. Chiquita pero picosa. She’s little, but with curves so sweet they’re dangerous. I remember Vanessa from the old days, the straight-A student with big plans. Plans that were derailed by another kid stupid enough to think he was bulletproof. Now Vanessa knows better than to believe in empty promises. There’s fire in her . . . and if I touch her, I might get burned.

I’m trying everything I can to go straight. But when East Side Hollenbeck comes calling, I might have to risk it all to find out if there’s a future for Vanessa and me. Because she’s the only one who can quench my thirst for something real.

The Rosas brothers will return in Trashed!
