I don’t do relationships.
I’ve lived my life hiding my scars, revealing myself only the in the scripts I write and the characters I voice.
Few people know the real me. I’m too careful. Too afraid of getting burned all over again.
Enter Beverly Martin. A movie star. A woman so beautiful and caring she makes my heart ache. She says she wants me—and her touch almost makes me believe that a girl like her could love a man like me.
But being with her would mean letting the spotlight of fame shine on me, too. And I’m not sure I can do that—even if walking away means losing the woman I love.
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!

Review: Man of the Month 11: Light My Fire
Light My Fire by J. Kenner is the eleventh book in her new 12 book Man of the Month series. Told in dual POV this is the story of Griffin and Beverly, a scarred man with a heart of gold and the indie-movie star beauty who fell for him inside and out.
Finally, Griffin's story - I have eagerly awaited his tale. Scarred from horrific burns as a child he keep his trusted hoodie on at almost al times and does not interact well with strangers. A regular at the fix, a voice actor for his popular podcast and now a screen-writer, her is in close proximity on most days to the breakout indie movie star, Beverly. He is rapidly falling for her but with his hangups about his scars he won't ever let things get to that point where he could actually be in a relationship with her.
Beverly has fallen for Griffin, hard. She knows he is very sensitive about his scarring but his personality, his hot body (because scars or not, dude works out), and his intense and brooding eyes, she is definitely falling for him. She knows he is worth it but how can she convince himself that his scars don't make him less of a person in her eyes or in others?
Well-written and well-paced, this was another great read and I'm excited with how each of the upcoming characters are gently weaved into the plots in earlier stories without being obtrusive to the current story. Enjoy!
I have anxiously been waiting for Griffin's story. I have been intrigued with his story ever since his sister's book. I would have loved to have seen Griffin's story in a full length novel though versus a novella. Beverly and Griffin's story was so touching, but I felt like it could have been so much more if the story was more developed. I continue to enjoy this series though. I have really enjoyed meeting all of the couples. Griffin and Beverly's story was a good one, I just would have loved so much more.
I enjoyed this book but it was way too short.
I'm so proud of Griffin. He went through a lot. And suffered through unimaginable horror. I couldn't imagine. Thanks to Jessie (another burn victim), she put him in his place. He ended up shedding his insecurities. And grew as a character. I really liked Beverly. She was a strong h. I liked Beverly and Griffin together. They were innocent and really likable. Though I think I'd have written that Griffin was still a virgin. I think it'd have more of an impact. It would tie into his burns a bit better.
The last chapter went at warp speed. I really felt a bit disappointed. I thought this book should have one more chapter then the epilogue. Though reading the epilogue, I'm super excited to read Walk The Line. Brent and Elena. Sounds like it might be a hot read.
