Get It On, the newest standalone in the Man of the Month Series by #1 New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner is LIVE!
Skillful hands. A talented tongue.
Meet Mr. May.
Fate’s been messing with veteran Tyree Johnson. It took his buddies in combat and his wife in a fatal car accident. But he’ll be damned if he’ll let Fate take his beloved bar, The Fix on Sixth.
For years, he’s avoided being Fate’s whipping boy through sheer force of will, and now every bit of his focus is centered on saving his business. Until, that is, the first woman who ever touched his heart walks back into his life—along with a daughter he never knew.
After years of loneliness, Tyree’s not prepared for the way Eva’s sensual curves and sharp wit still capture his heart and rekindle his senses. All he knows is that for the first time in forever, he’s found a passion other than his bar. But one final twist arrives when Fate pits the bar he can’t bear to lose against the woman who’s stolen his heart.
He’s a master at red-hot ecstasy.
**Get It On 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.
Tyree and Eva have a past. Second chance romances are one of my favorite tropes so I was very excited to see how J. Kenner would put her spin on that. The circumstances in this book were unique to me as a reader and I enjoyed working through them with Eva and Tyree.
These two have a chemistry for sure, it's just a matter of them figuring out how to handle that. Tyree's struggle with that made my heart hurt but it worked. As I haven't been in his shoes, I can't understand how hard it must be for him but J. Kenner does a good job showing his struggle. Sometimes, I think it might have been a bit much, but again, that's just my opinion.
The writing was strong as always. The pacing was a bit off for me in spots-some areas were rushed and others took a bit too long for me. But overall enjoyed this installment in the Man of the Month series. I look forward to getting glimpses of Tyree and Eva in later books. I look forward to the next book in this series and would recommend this title.
Tyree owns the bar, and he has been a central character in each of the titles for the books as he is the one who got the bar into the financial mess that required the Man of the Month competition in the first place.
Eva and Tyree have a past. And a daughter. That he didn't know about. You find out, quickly, that there is a reason Eva didn't tell Tyree about his daughter, and it justifies that she didn't. While I am not sure I totally believed it, I was willing to suspend disbelief as this is a shorter story and the author didn't have the words to tell a story that had that as a conflict as well as the resolution.
I did enjoy this title overall, although I think I wanted a little more development with the characters. While these are shorter stories, I think his story, as it is so central, was one I wanted more of, and I was left feeling like I wanted more.
I do still recommend it, as Tyree is an important part of The Fix on Sixth and the Man of the Month series. I did enjoy it, and I am hopeful there will be a little more of his and Eva's story as the stories resolve and the series ends.
