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 wa

Kennedy Rochester loves her family but her job in the family business isn't exactly what she always wanted to do. She loves cooking and working with numbers but working with her brother is all it's cracked up to be. Needing a drink when she walks into the hotel bar but what she didn't expect with the handsome man that takes her breath away.

AJ Phelps likes to keep tabs on the competition so stopping in the hotel bar is business, but all that changes the minute she walks in.

Their chemistry is inst

I really enjoyed reading Tapping That Asset by London Hale.

I enjoyed the storyline, it was sweet, hot, entertaining and did I mention hot? The chemistry between AJ and Kennedy was off the charts!! *fans self*


I loved how what started as one night of fun and hot sex turns into more. They didn't let Kennedy's a**hat brothers shady business deal stop them from being together and getting to know each other.
It was refreshing seeing a couple communicate and work together to get to their happi
"Tapping That Assett", is the first book I have read from this writing duo known as London Hale , and t has served to move their temper Ce fall series to the front of my Tbr list .

Before I can even think about reviewing Tapping That Asset, I have to say... is this the best freaking book title ever or what? Each of London Hale's book titles has been catchy, but this one took it to a whole other level. I love it. Oh and this cover? Holy. Hell. So hot. 

Now that I got all that out of the way, I can talk about the book itself. Unsurprisingly, I loved it. I won't say it's my favorite of their books so far because I don't like

I discovered London Hale this year and absolutely love her quick, sexy, and steamy reads. Though they are quick reads they are captivating and fun to read.

Kennedy Rochester is in Temperance Falls on business. As the CFO of her family business, it seems she is always travelling from one place to another. This makes for very lonely nights. So, when she runs into AJ Phelps at the hotel bar, she jumps on the chance for an amazing night! And boy was it amazing. She is hoping to have more of it while

Tapping That Asset is a funny, sexy, humorous romance story by London Hale. This is Aj’s story—we met him in Reunion and now he gets his own story. AJ and Kennedy have a hot one night stand. They end up meeting again when Kennedy comes to town with her brother and her brother is interested in doing not so good things in the town. AJ and Kennedy were surprised to meet up again. They soon come to find out they are enemies. Kennedy really likes AJ and doesn’t want to hurt him, his company or their
One of my favorite author finds this year has been London Hale. I love epic-length romance stories as much as the next person, but sometimes it's so nice to pick up something short, sweet, and super sexy. London Hale's Temperance Falls series totally gets the job done, in this regard. The heroes always bring the alpha-male swoons and the heroines are assertive women who are badasses in their fields and ready to go toe-to-toe with their men. We, as the readers, certainly get the benefit of those ...more

This story is short, fast paced and sweet. I read this book in one sitting and wasn’t once bored.
The chemistry between Aj and Kennedy was clear to see. The passion between them was through the roof. I liked them together and was rooting for them to get together. I also truly wanted Kennedy to get her dream of running her own restaurant.
I wanted to punch Charles. He irritated the hell out of me. His attitude was bad and his determination to ruin AJ’s business annoyed me. I liked that Kennedy tr

Quickest, filthiest read.

So, AJ, Luke’s partner in the brewery (remember Luke and Hannah?), he’s hooked up with a sweet, sexy bombshell. Their one night of passion transitions into his worst nightmare when he meets her again at his brewery right alongside her brother when the latter informs him, yup, inform, that he’s about to ruin his business.

Say, WHAT?

Kennedy, the bombshell, is half mortified, half resigned with her brother’s behavior, his ruthlessness and his cold, dead heart. She’s the CFO

Another hot, sweet, quick read from these ladies! Even though it's novella length, it felt like a whole novel with all the things that happen. Not that it's overloaded, but just a lot happens between Kennedy and AJ from when they meet to the end of the story.

Kennedy is a busy career woman and isn't looking for a relationship, just a hot one night stand. And she finds that with AJ. Too bad when she decides she wants to make that one night last for while she's in town, she finds out that AJ is th

“Charles sighed loud and long. “Here we go. You gonna climb back onto your feminist high horse today? Because I’m not in the mood.” And that was the moment I killed him Your Honor.” From the moment I saw that quote I knew this was going to be my new favorite London Hale read. I loved AJ and Kennedy so so much. AJ is fantastic. He is such a great guy and so charming and I fell so so hard. And Kennedy is my kind of girl. Kennedy is CFO of her family’s company, so she is a numbers girl like me and ...more

I don't know how LH managed to churn out all these sexy books but I hope they never stop. Tapping That Asset is a big step-up from the last LH I read (Knocking Her Up; I wish I had loved that more). It's short and sexy, and I love the chemistry between Kennedy and AJ. The epilogue is so sweet!

E-ARC is received thanks to the author.

5 GLORIOUS stars! Be prepare for an intense and mind-blowing reading. Let AJ take your breath away!

OMG! After reading Tapping That Asset, I didn't know that Enemies to Lovers Romance could be so hot and sexy. This book was an intense and mind-blowing reading. London Hale’s writing is beautifully addictive. Every book in the Temperance Falls Romance Series is a masterpiece that should be enjoyed slow. I absolutely love London’s steamy and quick reads.

Tapping That Asset was another great read from the London Hale gals.

As hot as we've come to expect from the ladies, and the residents of Temperance Falls, this pair tore up the sheets, the desk, the kitchen counter, the shower, the bathroom vanity... yeah, you're getting the idea!!! ;)

AJ and Kennedy had a red hot night together and both would have been up for a repeat only for things to go sideways when they meet the following morning.

Tapping that asset begins with a bang ..... against a door (wink) , I'm such a huge fan of Londaon Hale she writes some steamy reads that draw you into the story . If you Haven't read reunion you defiantly should because the couple in that makes an appearance ( all the authors stories can be read as a standalone familiar characters show up from time to times ) .

Author London Hale has once again crushed it with her newest book Tapping That Asset. This book was so well written and the characters were so well developed. The story is set in a place by the name of a Temperance Falls. In this story, we meet the characters of Kennedy Rochester, the CFO for Rochester Enterprises and AJ Phelps, ex professional baseball player and brewery owner with his best friend Luke.

London Hale is exactly what I need when I want to read a naughty bedtime story with a little depth and a whole lot of heat and heart. These ladies have made a name for themselves with their quick and dirty novellas... and honestly I just cannot get enough.

Tapping That Asset is their newest standalone novella and what an amazing little book this was. Sexy. Sweet. Captivating. Insta-everything. All the goodness. Hale made me swoon and smile right from the very start... and left me wanting

She always pulls me inside the stories and makes me feel like apart of the lives of the characters she creates, I swear I feel like I know these people personally. It is truly an HONOR to be able to read for her so I hope you take me seriously when I say please read her stories.

Another Hot Hit From London

I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this book, Tapping That Asset By London Hale.

So far I have loved every one of London’s books I’ve read and this one is no exception. It’s one of my top faves so far. Temperance Falls has become one of my favorite places to hang out.

The heroes are hot, sexy, tough, gentle and loving, while the heroines are fearless, loving, take no crap women that will do anything for those they love.

Tapping That Asset is a quick, fun, dirty little novella that I devoured in one sitting. Kennedy is a CFO for Rochester Entertainment, a company grown from the roots of her mom’s restaurant. Her older brother Charles is the man behind the CEO desk and makes all the decisions. That is until the reach Temperance Falls. Kennedy has a one night stand with AJ, a hot guy she meets in a bar, but next morning she meets him again.

London Hale has become my latest duo obsession. The way that they are able to convey the heat and passion of the bedroom scenes but the intimacy and heartfelt love of these two characters takes skills that not many authors have, but we are able to witness it in a duo! I am privileged to be able to experience their writing.

This duo is on fore with these little novellas they are releasing. They have so much un them but so quick to read. These characters were on fire from beginning to end and I could not put this book down until I read the very last word.

Kennedy and AJ had one amazing night..only to have a chance of a repeat crushed by Kennedy's brother and his business ideas.
But they both try to right the wrongs and they certainly don't waste time getting it on ;)
I love love love that Kennedy's brother gets what's coming and even more that the two find a way to communicate and see the other point of view.
