Blog Tour Review: Need You Now (Man of the Month #3) by J. Kenner

NeedYouNow_ReleaseBlitz.whiteNeed You Now, the newest standalone in the Man of the Month Series by #1 New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner is LIVE!


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.

**Hold On Tight 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.

My Review:
My Rating:   3.5 Stars

A simply sweet romance, a quick and easy read, that is what I'd call Need You Now by J. Kenner. This is my first book by this author, although I've had her books on my TBR list for a while.  This was probably the perfect way to get started.  While there was a little bit of angst, it was resolved pretty quickly and easily.  I definitely was rooting for Cam, he was the sweet best friend of Mina's brother Darryl.  Her twin brother, so yeah, same age basically, not really an older brother's friend.  I loved his sense of humor, and really need to go back and read the last two books in the series, to get to meet Cam and read about his funny entrance into the Mr. February competition.  My only issues are that I wish I'd gotten a bit more back story, but that may have been something from the first two books, and then that there are sooooo many side characters in this short story that at times I had to flip back some pages to try to place who each of them were.  It's not that they didn't have their own personalities or anything, it's just that there were a lot to catch onto in the shorter story.  But, they only inspire me to read on in this series as it fits in with my current review schedule, leaving the ones I can't fit in for later dates.  While it is a series, you can definitely read as a standalone, you'll just want to read the others to know more about all the great characters that you do meet.

About J. Kenner

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.

She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.

  1. I do enjoy sweet romances. I like that you felt this book can be a stand alone, so I don't need to read the first books. Too bad about the character confusion though, but it didn't seem like this was an issue to keep you from overall enjoying the book.

    1. It was still an easy read. I look forward to reading more, and hopefully I'll be able to place more characters as the story goes on. Thanks for stopping by!
