Title: Hold On Tight
Author: J. Kenner
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publishing Date: January 30th
A hard body. A dangerous past.
Meet Mr. February.
Reality-TV star and reformed bad boy Spencer Dean doesn’t trust women. Not after his fiancée, Brooke, left him at the altar five years ago, breaking his heart and hardening his soul.
Now, Brooke is close to a deal for her own show that will launch with the remodel of a popular Austin bar. The problem? The network insists that Spencer step in as her partner.
He’s tried to forget her—but he can’t deny that he still wants her. More than that, he wants to punish her. And so he agrees, but only on terms that are provocative, demanding, and wildly sensual.
It’s the perfect set-up for extracting revenge. But he doesn’t expect to fall for Brooke all over again…
Revenge never looked so hot.
**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.
I am loving all these interconnected romance books that J. Kenner is bringing us! They are so quick that they are perfect books to binge.
This book is Spencer and Brooke’s story, which includes a couple of popular romance tropes such as revenge and second chance. Spencer and Brooke are thrown together after being a part for five years, and Spencer is out for revenge for what Brooke did to them. What he doesn’t know….the real reason why Brooke left him standing at the altar. Brooke is finally getting her life back on track with her business when she is forced to face Spencer once again, but she doesn’t realize how much he still hates her after all these years. The two of them are just going to have to figure out how to work together in order to get what they both want.
I thought the story flowed really well and was a quick read. Since it is such a quick read, I didn’t get the depth of emotion behind some of the intense situations both of the characters have found themselves in in the past. However, I still felt that the story was fleshed out and tied in nicely with he rest of the series. I loved watching this couple grow throughout the book and the journey they took to finally get where they are.
Spencer is someone with a deep wound who tried to put up a front by being an asshole out for revenge. He is also a sweet, compassionate guy whose bark is bigger than his bite. Brooke is someone who is trying to do the right thing for someone who has never gotten a break and it costs her everything at the time. I thought these two were fantastic together and I was so happy they got a second chance.
Bring on Mr. March!

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.
Her books have sold over three million copies and are published in over twenty languages.
In her previous career as an attorney, JK worked as a clerk on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and practiced primarily civil, entertainment and First Amendment litigation in Los Angeles and Irvine, California, as well as in Austin, Texas. She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.
