Review: Man of the Month 8: Shake It Up
Shake It Up by J. Kenner is the eighth book in her new 12 book Man of the Month series. Told in dual POV this is the story of Landon and Taylor, the broody detective and the damsel in distress.
Taylor's life is in danger. That much is clear. When Brent, her boss at The Fix, enlists the help of his detective friend, Landon, to watch over her while he is on vacation, he doesn't realize that the attraction between them will reach explosive levels.
Landon tries to keep his distance from this beautiful woman, but being forced together under the circumstances doesn't allow him the distance he might ned to quell his desires. Despite his best efforts, the two of them begin to fall for one another. But danger is still looming close and it's now up to Landon to end Taylor's problems, once and for all.
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!
Sexy, suspenseful fun
Another sexy ‘Man of the Month,’ this one carries a badge. Taylor finds herself in trouble, she seems to have a stalker but her worst fear is that this is someone from her past that has found her. She has deep secrets that she has never shared with her friends in Austin. She enlists Brent’s help who pulls in Landon, the sexy police officer that grabs Taylor’s attention every time he is at The Fix. Landon is happy to help Taylor with her stalker however, he’s not sure he can keep his distance even though he doesn’t believe in relationships. As they unravel the mystery, will they unravel their hearts too?
Shake It Up was a very nice addition to the series...
Shake It Up by J. Kenner is Man of the Month series, Book 8. From the moment that Taylor D'Angelo and Landon Ware ran into each other, literally, there was an immediate attraction. Problem is, neither thinks they are right for the other person. Taylor is finishing up her degree and helping out with the Man of the Month contest at The Fix on Sixth but when threatening notes start to appear she is worried that she has picked up a stalker from one of her classes, or worse someone from her past come back to haunt her.
When Landon finds out that Taylor is in trouble he will stop at nothing to protect her and since he is a cop, he's pretty good at that sort of thing. Once they actually talk to each other its not long before the walls that each had put up to keep thoughts of the other out of their mind breaks down and something more grows, hot and fast, between them. These characters have deep wounds from their history but once they taste each other they know it's different and worth fighting for.
I liked how while each had valid self doubts it was not something that was dragged out or forced to be something that divided them. Learning more about Landon and Taylor's characters after seeing them in other books was nice and at this point the cast of characters that has been built in this series is vast, diverse, fun and romantic.
Overall I like all the books that J. Kenner has written in this series and Shake It Up was a very nice addition.
