Ink. Muscles. Whiskey.
Meet Mr. January.
Certified bachelor Reece Walker wants two things—to save the bar he manages, and Jenna Montgomery.
In his fantasies, long days at the bar lead to even longer nights in bed. The things he imagines doing with her change, but they all end the same way—with her pleasure.
He has a few ideas for the bar. But Jenna . . . well, he’s going to have to rely on cold showers, because she’s been his best friend for years, and that’s a line he just can’t cross.
Until one wild kiss on a dark night changes everything. Now Reece is certain Jenna’s meant to be his—but only if he can convince her that friends make the best lovers.
Winter’s never been so hot …
**Down On Me is the first in a binge read series by New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and #1 International bestselling author of the million copy Stark series, J. Kenner.
Awesome start to a new series!
Let me tell you, it was not a hardship picturing Reece as the guy on this cover. I would buy the paperback just for that cover! It helps that I loved the story as well.
This is a friends to lovers story between Reece and Jenna. They are part of a trio that grew up together. It’s always been Reece, Jenna and Brent, best friends forever. However, lately Reece and Jenna have been feeling more than just friendliness. Thinking the feelings are one sided and too scared to break up the trio, they both struggle with their feelings.
While book one of the series focuses on Reece and Jenna, the overall series plot is about these three becoming partners with their boss and friend, Tyree to help him save his bar, The Fix. With Jenna’s marketing expertise, she comes up with the idea to have a contest for men to compete to be a part of a Man of The Month calendar. They are hoping the contest will bring in new customers, as well as using the calendar as a fundraiser to save the bar.
Each book will focus on a new couple and the winner of that months calendar. With book one read, I’m already looking forward to Tyree, Brent and Spencer’s story. I can’t wait to see what new characters will be introduced in each book of the series.
As usual, Julie's writing is so descriptive. The characters are well developed and I love the sense of family she's created. It was a bit typical in the friends from childhood to love but it gave me all the feels with some little twists to it. However, I was disappointed that there's a slight cliffhanger. The characters get their HEA but the storyline continues. Ugh I need Hold On Tight...
A fantastic start to this series!!
This book was the perfect start to the Man Of The Month series!
Jenna and Reece were perfect together. I loved that they were besties and we got glimpses of their transformation to lovers as we read. Jenna is one of these sweet heroines that you can’t help but love, that has a feisty side to her. Reece is sexy, alpha, and everything I love in a hero.
We got to meet lots of secondary characters in this story, and I had so much fun trying to figure out who J. Kenner was going to put together for the rest of the year.
This book is phenomenal, and a definite must read!
