Hannah Donovan is not my type.

Intellectual and career-focused, she’s a lawyer, and an intimidatingly beautiful one, at that. I’d rather pump iron than open a book, and the only reason I’d go to court would be for a traffic ticket.

She’s the most gorgeous woman I’ve ever seen. So how can I turn down her plea that I pretend to be her fiancé for one weekend?

But I never expected our pretend kisses to feel so real … or for it to lead to a wild night in bed that will forever stand out as the highlight of my sex life.

Our performance convinces everyone, but it was never meant to be more than a fantasy. A short term gig before reality sets back in.

I can’t imagine ever being good enough for her, but I’m hooked. And now I’m determined to do whatever it takes to make this fake engagement real.

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!

    This was one fantastic read! I absolutely loved it. Unfortunately it was too short but it still rocked. I was worried that Matthew and Hannah weren't getting their HEA but they did. I loved how they came together and the idea was genius. I really liked Hannah's dilemma. She had a few decisions to make. I'm so glad she fought for Matthew. He was a great guy. He just needed a little push.

    “I wasn’t looking for you, but I found you. And now I need you” Hello Mr. October! As the series winds down, I can’t say enough how much I have enjoyed these stories! Hannah Donovan is ready for a new start. On the cusp of opening a new law firm with her bestie, Easton, she’s got one snag. The money. She knows where to get it and how, but she needs one last piece of the puzzle. A man. One that will convince her mother to release the inheritance from her father. Matthew Herrigan. Will he come to her rescue and pretend to be hers? This would be totally fake and temporary. Right? Matthew Herrigan has been attracted to Hannah for a while now. She’s perfect.

    Matthew, our favorite gym owner and Hannah, Easton’s bestie start off as a pretend couple and of course, that doesn’t last long. The truth always comes out, but will they be able to make it work? This was good, fast paced read and I enjoyed it. 4.5/5 stars.

    I can't believe we are almost done with this series. Matthew and Hannah are the focus of book 10 and have been in previous books, however you do not need to read the others to enjoy their story. Hannah is a lawyer and good friends with Easton from book 9. In his book she asked Easton to start up a new law practice with her. What she wasn't expecting was for her funds to start this new practice to be tied up in her retirement without being able to cash it in. Hannah needs the money her dad left her in his will to get the start up funds and the only way to accomplish this is to show her mom and step-dad that she is settling down. This is where Matthew comes in. Selma, his sister and girlfriend of Easton happily volunteered Matthew to pose as Hannah's finance to her parents to show that she is ready to settle down. As I'm sure you can guess, this doesn't go off without a hitch. What Hannah doesn't know is that Matthew has always had a secret thing for her and he's not sure how detached he can be for this role. Hannah also realizes she may have a thing for Matthew as well but the last thing she needs is a new relationship while trying to start up her new business. I liked this couple well enough but I did not like her parents! I won't say too much to give it away but I wish there was some justice done on that part. Maybe that's being saved for a sides story in book 11. Griff is up next and I think he is one of the most anticipated stories for me. I think he's been in every single book so far and I'm very intrigued about how he is going to handle being the Man of the Month with his scars that he takes great care into hiding. It will be interesting to see how J Kenner handles it. 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.
  • Fantastic

    By Ddgoldbergs
    A fantastic read filled with all the feels. Hannah and Matthew are working together to make Hannah’s dreams come true. Will his social status be too much? Will Hannah lose the one thing she’s been desperately wanting without realizing it? I’m Too Deep is the 10th book in the Man of the Month series, yet it can be read as a standalone. It’s incredibly well written and a quick, enjoyable read. J Kenner has done an outstanding job of using descriptive writing and had me falling in love with her characters.
