"Best friends forever, right? The Three Muskateers. "Or three blind mice, depending on your point of view."
I was so excited when I heard about the Man of the Month series. Knowing that I had 12 books to look forward to and a collection of characters that I would become attached to and be able to spend time with rates high with me. After seeing this first cover for #MrJanuary I suffered a severe case of CoverLust and expect my symptoms to recur for each month that follows.
I was thrown right into Reece's suffering from the first chapter. It was 8 months after his first realization that he was having impure thoughts about his best friend, Jenna. Well, not exactly the first time he noticed she was a girl, but the first time he was tempted to do something about it. Since then he's been unable to escape his lustful fantasies. It was somewhat manageable when she moved to LA, but now that she's coming home, it will be a struggle to hide his feelings. He wants her.
Jenna has been best friends with Brent & Reece since she was eleven years old. She knows that they love her and would do anything she asked, no matter what. They are her family, the only one she has other than her mom. No matter how much she is lusting after Reece, she's not willing to risk what they have. She knows how he feels about relationships, and what she wants is just not possible. She wants him.
Holy sexual tension Batman! Being inside the heads of these two lust-struck characters had me turning on the fan in winter! I was offering plenty of relationship advice, which they both promptly ignored. But it was fun waiting for the inevitable to happen. We all knew they could only hold out for so long, right?
In the meantime, all the people pulling together to save the local bar was exciting. The friends, family, and celebrities that got involved in the calendar project and the countdown to their deadline amped up the suspense. Getting a glimpse into the lives of the support characters gave me an inkling into what the author might have in store for her readers. To say that I'm chomping at the bit is an understatement. I'm bouncing with excitement to get my hands on #MrFebruary. The line forms here...
J.Kenner (aka Julie Kenner) is the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and #1 International bestselling author of over seventy novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres.
Though known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances (including the Stark and Most Wanted series) that have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, JK has been writing full time for over a decade in a variety of genres including paranormal and contemporary romance, “chicklit” suspense, urban fantasy, and paranormal mommy lit.
JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” A five time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy). Her Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series (as Julie Kenner) is currently in development with AwesomenessTV/Awestruck.
Her books have sold over three million copies and are published in over twenty languages.
In her previous career as an attorney, JK worked as a clerk on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and practiced primarily civil, entertainment and First Amendment litigation in Los Angeles and Irvine, California, as well as in Austin, Texas. She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.
