She only wanted one night
Being on the road all the time because of the family business makes for a lot of lonely nights. So when handsome, charming AJ Phelps finds me in the hotel bar, I’m ready for more than casual conversation. After an amazing night, my hope to continue a brief affair with the town charmer is derailed when I come face to face with him the following day. This time, he’s not just handsome, charming AJ. He’s all business…and the owner of the brewery my brother is dead set on ruining. All may be fair in love and war, but there’s nothing as cut throat as beer and business.
He wants it all
As an ex-pro baseball player turned business owner, I have it all. Or I thought I did until Kennedy Rochester crossed my path. A one night stand with a woman as hot, intelligent, and feisty as that? No brainer. At least not until the following morning when she steps into my brewery and tells me in no uncertain terms her family business is there to put me out of mine. I should loathe her for threatening my livelihood, but I don’t. I can’t. Not when all I think about when I look at her is our single, toe-curling night together. Not when I’d give nearly anything for just one more.

Temperance Falls, oh how I love this little island. The people are wonderful and the stories just keep getting better. If I could live in any world created in a book, Temperance falls would be the place I move to in a heartbeat.
AJ featured in the previous Temperance Falls book Reunion. He’s the business partner of Luke. He grew up on Temperance Falls and has gone back to his roots and is co-running a small business. When out of nowhere, in walks Kennedy and her brother. Her brother is the single most narrow-minded, stubborn person I have had the displeasure of reading about this year. With one conversation Charles upends AJ’s perfectly planned out life.
“I don’t care what I’ve put into it. I have more money than I know what to do with. But my best friend and partner? He’s sunk everything he has into this. It’s the only thing he has left of his father. And I won’t let it fail.”
The chemistry between Kennedy and AJ was off the charts. The friction and energy was palpable. I have loved each and every new addition these authors have created, but AJ and Kennedy are fast becoming my favourites.
‘…I was falling in love with him. Maybe I already had. A thought which made me grab him by the chin and pull him to his feet. Made me wrap my arms around his neck and kiss him deeply, slowly, putting every emotion I felt for him into that kiss. Love, frustration, fear, near…everything.’
Visiting Pops’ from AJ’s perspective was far different than it had been in Reunion. The feel of the environment wasn’t the same as it was in previous books; to AJ, Pops’ was important from a business perspective, but also because of the connection Luke had to it. AJ was a warm, charismatic man with a truly colourful and saddening past which could be said for Kennedy as well. She had grown up different but still had very similar experiences to him.
‘Our names on each other’s lips, I knew she was right.
This was perfect. We were perfect, together.’
The threat was the biggest part of this book. It moved along swiftly, showcasing Kennedy and AJ’s strengths showed just how complimentary they were to each other.
