Surprising, sexy, fun journey for Tyree
Tyree’s story surprised me. I knew he loved his wife and still felt her loss years later, but he had another amazing love story to tell. When Elena shows up at The Fix, she reminds him of a woman he lost years ago, Eva. When Eva appears, Tyree finds his world shifted again. Eva has built a career and is a strong confident woman but coming face-to-face with Tyree, well, she just isn’t prepared. Elena is the wild card and great manipulator. This second chance romance was so fun to experience while gut wrenching at the same time. You think you know what happened but as the story unfolds, there is a depth to the separation that surprised me. I just really wanted Tyree to find happiness again as he fights to keep his bar alive, he needs to keep his soul happy too.
The 5th standalone set in the Man of the Month series!
I was so looking forward to getting to know the owner of The Fix on Sixth a little better. I mean, Tyree has an amazing body, an absolute love for his bar, and he truly cares for the people he works with. That being said, Get It On just wasn't my favorite of the series. Don't get me wrong, I loved the main characters in the book, Tyree was dreamy, Eva was interesting, and Elena was spunky. However, I felt as if the reunion between these lost lovers was rushed, as was the ending. Also, the chemistry just felt off to me. That all said, I adore J. Kenner's writing, it's got this easy flow that makes you completely absorbed in the story. The conflict was interesting and different, and the sexy scenes were HOT.
I'm loving the stories being intertwined, I can't wait for more!
Review: Man of the Month 5: Get It On
Get It On by J. Kenner is the fifth book in her new 12 book Man of the Month series. Told in dual POV this is where the owner of The Fix himself, Tyree, comes face to face with a past love and learns to open his heart again, not just with Eva but with their grown daughter that he only just found out existed.
Tyree is blindsided by the knowledge that he has a daughter with Eva - the woman who broke his heart before he met his wife. With Teiko gone the past few years he has never really moved past losing her and he and his son, Elijah, have grown closer and gone through so much together since her death. Learning about his daughter, Elena, was a shock, but a pleasant surprise. Seeing Eva after all these years, however, left him speechless.
Eva thought she had lost Tyree all those years ago and now that she knows the truth about the situation she is hesitant to make a move. Good thing for her and Tyree that their daughter, Elena, doesn't mind putting wither of them in the hot seat at all. Showing up in Austin felt like a mistake until it didn't and now she is willing to give his thing with them a chance. But is Tyree ready?
Well-written and well-paced, this was another great read and I'm excited with how each of the upcoming characters are gently weaved into the plots in earlier stories without being obtrusive to the current story. Enjoy!
May’s MotM is Hot!!
I’m normally not one for the older couples in Books, nothing against them, it’s just not my thing. But Tyree and Eva’s story was quite hot and awesome!! I LOVE The Fix crowd!
And Elena and Eli are just amazing!!! I love how sneaky Elena is to try and get her parents together, especially since it’s been 20 years since they’ve seen each other.
Just another great installment of the MotM calendar and club! I LOVE this series so much!!!
Get it On is the next book in J. Kenner's Man of the Month series...
Get it On is the next book in J. Kenner's Man of the Month series and this one is about the owner of The Fix on Sixth himself, Tyree Johnson. We know from previous books that Tyree lost the love of his life, his wife Teiko, in a car accident and is raising their teenage son Eli on his own. What we didn't know is that Tyree had a love in his youth, Eva, who he had lost after shipping out.
When his adult daughter, Elena, shows up to meet him, his world is rocked. Eva is not far behind Elena, once she finds out her daughter has gone to meet the dad she only heard stories about, and once Tyree and Eva see each other its not long until the years that have past melt away and their love rekindles.
J. Kenner does a good job making sure that Tyree's wife, who passed away, is not just ignored as the past. Tyree's love for both Teiko and Eva are something he has to reconcile. Lucky for him he has a devious matchmaker in Elena who wants to see her parents get back together. I felt the path that Tyree takes gives his renewed relationship with Eva more meaning. His love for her is both old and new. They have history together and apart.
Overall I very much enjoyed Get it On by J. Kenner. I have liked all the books in this series and since Tyree's character has been integral in past books it was nice to see him get his happily ever after. This was a very deep, complex and romantic book which I definitely recommend.

In His Forties and Fabulous!
I love this series. I have pretty much said so in my review of each of the books before this one. What I loved most about this one was that our main characters are in their forties. Established in their lives. And now, they're getting a second chance. Not a "I haven't seen you in 5 or 10 years" kind of chance. This was a twenty-plus year separation! Love it!
Tyree is just trying to keep his bar open. He's lost the 2 women he's ever loved. One to a lie. The other to a tragic accident. Fate hasn't exactly been his friend over the years. Well, Fate isn't taking his bar. Keeping his business alive has been his sole focus - until now.
Eva, the first woman he ever loved, is back in his life - with the grown daughter he never knew he had. Can he see past his anger and the lies to see the second chance in front of him? Can he overcome the guilt he feels over feeling this way for Eva, when he still carries the love and the memory of his late wife?
This was a great second chance love story!! I'm thrilled that the characters were of a more mature age than we typically see. I highly recommend this book and this series.
I've been with my husband for 26 years. I hope my love for him is as strong as Teiko was to Tyree. It was a once in a lifetime. This book rocked me to my core. When Eva said "Just don't hurt her" I lost it. Absolutely lost it. Cried like a kindergartener. This was the most thought out of all the books so far. I feel like J Kenner put more thought into this one. It was honest. It was genuine. It was heartfelt. I couldn't imagine what Tyree was going through. And Eva- she knew what she wanted. She wasn't going to settle. Eva didn't take "it" from anybody.
I sincerely loved this book. I'd recommend it but you probably need to read the other 4 books in this series. I'm enjoying this journey. I feel like I'm on cloud 9.
I struggled to get through this book. I think what made it hard for me was the age gap between myself and the characters and their storyline in general. I couldn’t place myself there.
Tyree and Eva are a second chance romance secret baby story. There is guilt for Tyree for feeling as if he’s dishonoring his first wife’s memory. As I said, there were a lot things that it difficult to get through the story due to relate ability.
Second Time Around
I really enjoyed Tyree’s story. I wasn’t sure how I would so it was a surprise that I finished it in just a few hours. It can be tricky writing and justifying a long lost love with a child involved that doesn’t make someone “the bad guy”, but J Kenner has done it with Tyree and Eva. They still had a connection even after so much time has passed. And I liked the fact that he loved his late wife, Teiko just as much and that he didn’t just “settle for second best”. I, also, liked the way J Kenner wrote their first attempt at intimacy, it was very real. Both Elijah and Elena seemed well adjusted and not bratty, which can be a refreshing change. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick, satisfying read.
Sweet second chance story!
Finally time to get Tyree's story! Even though it's been several years, he's still dealing with the loss of his wife. He's raising his son and working hard to keep his bar open. Tyree is a good man that's been through a lot and life hits him with something unexpected, a daughter. He gets a chance to know this young lady and reconnect with her mom. I enjoyed seeing him get his happy back!
