This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
I’ve never had a problem getting women on my arm or in my bed.
Except for Jenna Montgomery.
She’s the woman I want. The woman I’ve craved my whole life. But she’s been my best friend since childhood, and that’s a line I can’t cross.
Until one wicked night changes everything.
Now all bets are off. And I’m determined to use every seductive skill in my repertoire to prove to Jenna that best friends can be lovers, too.
Who’s Your Man of the Month?
When a group of fiercely determined friends realize their beloved hang-out is in danger of closing, they take matters into their own hands to bring back customers lost to a competing bar. Fighting fire with a heat of their own, they double down with the broad shoulders, six-pack abs, and bare chests of dozens of hot, local guys who they cajole, prod, and coerce into auditioning for a Man of the Month calendar.
But it’s not just the fate of the bar that’s at stake. Because as things heat up, each of the men meets his match in this sexy, flirty, and compelling binge-read romance series of twelve novels releasing every other week from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner.
“With each novel featuring a favorite romance trope—beauty and the beast, billionaire bad boys, friends to lovers, second chance romance, secret baby, and more—this series hits the heart and soul of romance.” — New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips
Each book is a STANDALONE romance with an HEA and an overarching story about the friends and the bar. Totally hot and utterly binge-worthy!
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!
