A SENSUAL BEAUTY AND THE BEAST ROMANCE
He knows he’s a beast.
So how can he win the beauty?
Voice actor and writer Griffin Draper doesn’t do relationships. He’s lived most of his life in shadows, hiding his hated scars under long sleeves, hoodies and hats, revealing himself only in the scripts he writes and the characters he brings to life.
Only a few people know the true man, his heart and his face. He’s too careful. Too afraid of getting burned all over again.
Then Beverly Martin enters his life, and suddenly Griffin’s heart aches for more. She’s beautiful and caring, and little by little she eases her way into his heart, and his bed. The connection between them is electric, and Griffin can’t believe he’s finally tasting the kind of passion he believed would never be his. Best of all, Beverly says she wants him, too—and her touch almost makes Griffin believe that a girl like her could truly love a beast like him.
But Beverly is an A-list movie star who lives her life in the spotlight. Can Griffin take the leap into the bright lights of fame? Or will he end up losing the only woman he’s ever loved?
Each book is a STANDALONE romance with an HEA and an overarching story about a group of friends and the local bar they love. Totally hot and utterly binge-worthy!

Light My Fire
On my, this book is amazing. Griffen and Beverly are made for each other. I’m so happy that Griffen finally took that leap of love,destiny and faith. They all allowed for him to search deep to bring up the strength and courage to finally face the world as himself. As for Beverly I really admire her tenacity for going after the man she love and knocking sense into him. Last but not least the title was the perfect fit .
Review: Man of the Month 11: Light My Fire
Light My Fire by J. Kenner is the eleventh book in her new 12 book Man of the Month series. Told in dual POV this is the story of Griffin and Beverly, a scarred man with a heart of gold and the indie-movie star beauty who fell for him inside and out.
Finally, Griffin's story - I have eagerly awaited his tale. Scarred from horrific burns as a child he keep his trusted hoodie on at almost al times and does not interact well with strangers. A regular at the fix, a voice actor for his popular podcast and now a screen-writer, her is in close proximity on most days to the breakout indie movie star, Beverly. He is rapidly falling for her but with his hangups about his scars he won't ever let things get to that point where he could actually be in a relationship with her.
Beverly has fallen for Griffin, hard. She knows he is very sensitive about his scarring but his personality, his hot body (because scars or not, dude works out), and his intense and brooding eyes, she is definitely falling for him. She knows he is worth it but how can she convince himself that his scars don't make him less of a person in her eyes or in others?
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!
The most emotionally intense story of this series, so far. Griffin and Beverly are two characters who both want to be with the other, but have something holding them back. I found Griffin’s struggle with his scars to be agonizing and emotional for me as a reader. Beverly’s love helps him overcome so much and she is the true hero of the story. I’m a little sad we’re getting close to the end.
