Strong arms. Piercing eyes.
Meet Mr. February. Winter’s ice is about to melt.
Former reality-TV star and remodeling expert Spencer Dean doesn’t trust women. Not after his fiancée, Brooke, left him at the altar seven years ago, breaking his heart and hardening his soul.
He’s tried to forget her—but when she shows up at his construction site begging for help, he can’t deny that he still wants her. More than that, he wants to punish her.
Brooke tells him that she has a deal for a property-based reality show that will launch with the remodel of a popular Austin bar. The problem? The network insists that Spencer step in as her partner.
Spencer agrees. But only on terms that are provocative, demanding, and wildly sensual.
It’s the perfect set-up for extracting revenge. But he doesn’t expect to fall for Brooke all over again…
**Hold On Tight is part of 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.
A must read!!!
This was a fantastic addition to the Man Of The Month series!!!
Spencer comes off as a butthead at the beginning of the book, but I quickly fell in love with his personality, sexiness, and his vulnerability. He has some demons from his past he’s trying to overcome, and nails it by the end of the book.
Brooke is sweet, fun, and while she came off a bit weak towards the beginning of the book, she found her voice and became a heroine most of us would love to be.
These two heated up the pages, and it had the perfect amount of drama. I loved when Brooke decided enough was enough, and took her stand. Of course, you can’t have the announcement of who Mr February was without something big happening, and this didn’t disappoint!!
This is definitely a must read!
Angel with a Little Bit of Devil
More of a 4.5 than 5 star read for me, but loved it nonetheless. I felt like I flew through this book. This book focused more on Spencer and Brooke (the lead characters), whereas the first book in the series really set the scene and introduced a lot of the men who would be the leads in future books and possible females leads. You'll be introduced to some new characters that will probably appear in future books and get to know some characters we were introduced to in the first book.
Brooke, the daughter of wealthy parents; Spencer, the bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, with a bit of criminal past. It's your typical second chance love story of good girl and bad boy that is written well. There are no whiny characters, just strong characters dealing with reasonable self doubt. I do wish the revenge aspect had been carried out a tad bit longer.
While we can all pretty much figure out what ending is going to be of the series, I'm curious to see all the twists and turns of the individual books as we learn all about all of these characters, as well as the story as a whole. Because I've read so many books from this author, I think I'm more excited for the books of characters we've encounter in previous series. Only time will tell and Book 3 will be here before we know it.
“A man who once would have laid down his life for her. Now, he wanted to destroy her.”
Ever since I finished Down On Me I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next Man of the Month. I would love to get inside Julie’s mind when she is brainstorming her projects. I love the concept of this series and look forward to each Man’s story.
If you read about Reece ~ wait to you meet his competition Mr. February! You can’t help compare and get drawn into the excitement of the calendar contest.
“he was manipulative...and she was a woman who'd sacrificed her pride for the sake of her business.”
This book is filled with regret, desperation, moving on, healing, forgiveness, letting go, betrayal, secrets, jealousy and manipulation...intertwined with want, chemistry, heat and the past sneaking its way to the present. This book keeps you on your toes, engaged and always wanting more of the calendar men.
"Don't ever do something just to go along...You know your own mind, and that's the path you need to be walking.”
