Charming smile. Wicked skills.
Meet Mr. March.
With his tousled hair, cocky grin, and surprising abs hidden under a conservative button-down, bartender Cameron Reed is no stranger to the attention of women.
He dates, but never gets serious, claiming that he’s too focused on his studies. But it’s not really school that preoccupies him; it’s sensual fantasies of his best friend’s sister.
Mina Silver might be absolutely off-limits because of her overprotective brother and father, but that doesn’t stop Cam from imagining the feel of her in his arms, the brush of his lips over her soft skin, or the sparks that would fly between them if he ever got her into bed.
But for Cam, the bonds of family and friendship are sacrosanct, and there is no way that he’d ever violate his friend’s trust. Or would he?
Because with love on the line, maybe it’s time for Cam to break a few rules.
Taking a risk never felt so right.
**Need You Now 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.
Each novel in the series is a STANDALONE romance with a guaranteed HEA!
But even so, you won’t want to miss any in the series. Because then you can answer the question…
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

Rosa's rating: 5 of 5 iScream Cones
It takes more than sparkly balls to enter the danger zone of falling for your best friend's twin sister.
What a brilliant idea to save a local bar, right? Who wouldn't love to vote on the Man of the Month? I'm really enjoying this series, it's getting better and better as each book either introduces new characters or gives us a closer look at some we've already met. And the wicked author teases us by giving us glimpses of chemistry between certain couples but then makes us wait to find out if it will develop into anything. But I can't deny it's fun to guess what will happen next and to anticipate the outcome of their extreme efforts to save their local bar, The Fix. They are pulling out all the stops and bringing in some interesting celebrities to build the hype. What I wouldn't give to have a ticket to watch that show on Wednesday nights!
Cam is somewhat of a nerd, taking some ribbing by his friends for his interest in old books. He's currently attending college and working as a bartender at The Fix. In spite of his understated grooming, he's very popular with the ladies. And now that they've seen his abs after his last-minute entry in the February Man of the Month contest, he's even more sought after. Well, at least by the ladies he's not interested in. The only woman he wants up close and personal with his abs treats him like a brother and would be shocked if she knew what he was thinking about her.
Mina is a tiny dark-haired pixie who brings out the protective side of men, but that's not what she's looking for. She's always been drawn to bad boys that know what they want. She's never seen Cam as anything other than a brother, until she did. Maybe it was the roar of the crowd when he pulled off his shirt during the Man of the Month contest that made her take another look at him. And it wasn't a brotherly feeling that she felt...
Woo Hoo! What fun it was to anticipate the explosion when Cam's unrequited love was finally brought into the light. His interest in Mina seemed to be obvious to everyone but her, and I was so anxious for her to finally wake up and see what she was missing. And I couldn't wait for him to show her all those things he'd been fantasizing about. It was the logistics that were in question. The fact that he felt like she was forbidden and unavailable to him really slowed down the process which made the sexual tension between them even more delicious as they fought their feelings.
And can I just say how excited I am about a possible future book that might feature Mila's twin brother, Darryl. I didn't learn too much about him, but just enough to make me very intrigued for more. I'm enjoying this series so much that I'm really wishing there were more months in a year because I'm not ready for it to end anytime soon. I can't wait to see who they will convince to strut down the runway next. The line forms here...
