Book Review: Down On Me by J. Kenner

Down on Me (Man of the Month, #1)

Tight muscles. Vibrant Ink.
Meet Mr. January. Winter’s never looked so hot…
Certified bachelor Reece Walker wants two things — to save the local bar he manages and to get Jenna Montgomery into his bed.

He has a few ideas for the bar. But Jenna... well, he’s going to have to rely on cold showers, because she’s been his best friend for years, and that’s a line he just can’t cross.

Until one wild kiss on a dark night changes everything. Now Reece is certain Jenna’s meant to be his.

And with long nights in bed, sensual caresses, and deep, lingering kisses, he sets out to thoroughly convince her that friends can be lovers, too.

Down On Me is first book in 'A Man Of The Month Novel' series. The first half of the story sets up the premise of the series while intertwining a friends to lovers romance.  The second half delves further into the relationship that left me frustrated with the heroine. I use heroine loosely because of her unreasonable nature put me off.

Let me start from the beginning. Reece Walker who works at Fix on Sixth, discovers the bar is struggling and he and his best friend jump in to help save it.  Reece also recruits their other best friend, Jenna Montgomery, who has just returned from Los Angeles after a failed job.  Reece, Brent and Jenna are long time high school friends, best friends.  Before Jenna had left for LA she and Reece had a special moment. A moment they both put behind them. Now that Jenna's back they both need to keep their distance because they don't want to ruin their friendship. Jenna knows that she wants more than Reece is able to give. When Reece decides he can't stay away can Jenna accept his limitations? All while trying to save the Fix on Sixth with a small remodel and a Fix on Sixth's Man of the Month calendar model contest.

Down On Me did a good job prepping us for the upcoming books in the series.  In the end I'm happy that Reece and Jenna have their HEA.  We'll see what February brings. 4 Stars
