Review : Light My Fire (Man of the Month #11) by J. Kenner

unnamed (11)

unnamed (12)I don’t do relationships.

I’ve lived my life hiding my scars, revealing myself only the in the scripts I write and the characters I voice.

Few people know the real me. I’m too careful. Too afraid of getting burned all over again.

Enter Beverly Martin. A movie star. A woman so beautiful and caring she makes my heart ache. She says she wants me—and her touch almost makes me believe that a girl like her could love a man like me.

But being with her would mean letting the spotlight of fame shine on me, too. And I’m not sure I can do that—even if walking away means losing the woman I love.

**Light My Fire 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.

Each book in the series is a STANDALONE novel with NO cliffhanger and a guaranteed HEA!

My Review

Rating : 4 out of 5 Stars

This character driven story was fresh, emotional and sweet just as much as it was sexy.  It is Beauty and the Beast themed, with a built up love between a broody, scarred and reclusive hero and a sweet heroine. Griffin and Beverly made the most wonderful characters. What was so special was how they both saw beyond the physical in each other and related on a much deeper level.

Griffin is a fourth-degree burn survivor and has lived his life hiding his scars. He has been making a name as a voice actor and has made a splash with a podcast for a web series, Beverly is a famous actress starring in his next project. Griffin is not ready for a relationship, he thinks no one could ever love him or be attracted to him. And yet Beverly wants a chance to truly get to know him. They struggle with their attraction, and they are both very good at hiding their emotions. But Griffin trusts Beverly to look at his badly scarred face while Beverly grapples to make it clear to him that she sees him beyond his scars.

This new addition in the Man of the month series kept me engaged and riveted from the first page to the last. Of course, there was a Man of the Month contest at The Fix on Sixth. But, it was totally secondary to this beautiful story of growing beyond your past.

Many thanks to the author for my copy of this book!
