Book 8, Man of the Month
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
There are a million reasons why I need to stop thinking about Taylor D'Angelo naked.
She's too young for me, for starters.
She's too ambitious.
She's my job.
Romance was the last thing on my mind when I agreed to look into her stalker as a favor.
Now, she's all I can think about--and in every position I can imagine.
I'm not the only one obsessing and the threats against her are intensifying along with our connection.
If I give in, if I let our bodies take over, it could draw her stalker out.
Our passion could save her.
Or it could destroy us both.
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!

So good! Eighth in the Man of the Month series, Taylor and Landon’s book can be read as a standalone. Fast paced, with an edge of uncertainty, this book had me guessing and excited for each page I read. The humor, emotion and sexy time were well written and had me completely drawn in.
J Kenner’s has work has always left me with all the feels. She did not disappoint me with Shake It Up
A fantastic read!
Getting Back on Track
Alright, I feel like we’re getting back on track with this series. I felt like Book 7, In Your Eyes, was lacking and I think it might have been due to the timespan of the book and its short length. Whereas the last book took place over a year, this book takes place over a couple weeks.
Taylor’s got a stalker and Detective Landon Ware steps in as a “favor”. While Landon is older than Taylor this is hardly May-December romance. While there is chemistry between the two, the sexy times aren’t very steamy, hence the four star rating. The development of their relationship lacked some building blocks due to the short time frame. These two don’t have that “tear apart” moment I’ve mentioned before, but they both come with their respective baggage.
If you’ve been reading the series, you’re most likely invested in Reece, Cam, Nolan, Tyree, Parker, Easton, Griffin, and Brent. Spencer’s story was part of the building blocks of the series. Derek and Landon, (and mostly likely Matthew) are just the wild cards, the hotties for ladies we’ve become invested in from the previous books. Their stories aren’t meant to be game changers to the series, just some filling to progress the story line.
Taylor finds her past has come back to haunt her and she either needs to skip town or trust in Landon to protect her. Landon has a thing for Taylor but he's kept his distance due to her younger age. When she gets threatened, his need to protect her gave him the perfect excuse to get closer to her.
I'm such a sucker for an older man/younger woman story. I was afraid there was going to be some major pushing away since we learned in a previous book that Landon was burned in his past. Thankfully, that didn't happen. While they didn't fall in love at first site, they also didn't resist the attraction. I enjoyed reading about this couple. I wish it was a bit longer so we could have gotten more.
Brief Series Description: The Man of the Month series all started when the local bar called The Fix on Sixth, owned by Tyree, was on the verge of closing. Long time friends Jenna, Reece, and Brent jump in to invest in the bar and come up with ways to raise money and to bring more customers in. One of those ideas was to hold a Calendar of the Month contest in the bar focusing on local celebrities. Each book in the series represents the man of that month.
