Hannah Donovan is not my type.

Intellectual and career-focused, she’s a lawyer, and an intimidatingly beautiful one, at that. I’d rather pump iron than open a book, and the only reason I’d go to court would be for a traffic ticket.

She’s the most gorgeous woman I’ve ever seen. So how can I turn down her plea that I pretend to be her fiancé for one weekend?

But I never expecte

Ooh, Hannah and Matthew! What a story. These two held me captivated and gave me All. The. Feels. I was quickly sucked into their journey and I was rooting for them. Their story was hot, sweet and so good!! I loved this addition to the man of the month series.

Fake relationship romances? Yes...please!!!! There is just something fun about these kind of romance storylines especially when it comes to J. Kenner who has the ability to create characters that demands our attention. Toss in the fact that there is this crazy burning sexual tension between her characters will make you go crazy,giddy and swoon all at the same time. So it’s practically given that will fall In Too Deep in love with this

I can't believe we are almost done with this series. Matthew and Hannah are the focus of book 10 and have been in previous books, however you do not need to read the others to enjoy their story.

Hannah is a lawyer and good friends with Easton from book 9. In his book she asked Easton to start up a new law practice with her. What she wasn't expecting was for her funds to start this new practice to be tied up in her retirement without being able to cash it in.

"He'd wanted to touch her simply to find out if sparks would shoot from his fingers."

Yup, the chemistry between these two is electric and I felt the sparks flying. My Kindle was in serious danger of melting, either from their passion or my rage. The author never fails to get me worked up one way or another. And let me tell you, I was seriously riled while reading In Too Deep.

First, I have to honor that the author doesn't mention his name in the synopsis, so I'm not sure if she's ke

Well, this little series just keeps getting better and better. Matthew, our gym rat, is up next for the Man of the Month and paired with a woman who usually goes after what she wants but needs a little help this time around … Atty. Hannah Donovan.

I felt a little sad for Matthew. He is insecure but a successful business man. Owns his own gyms, not ashamed of where he came from or how he was brought up. But, honestly feels that he isn't good enough for the educated, beautiful Hannah Donovan. Yes,

Coming into the homestretch for this Man of the Month series! In too Deep is Hannah and Matthew’s story.

Hannah’s in a bit of a conundrum. She needs the money set aside from her father’s life insurance policy, but that requires her to jump through many hoops set up by her mother and step father. Enter Matthew.

Matthew’s had a serious crush on Hannah for a while and acting as her “fake fiancé” gives him an opportunity to get to know her better and hopefully be the start of something “more.” What c

The connotative meanings when it comes to the title for Mr. October’s book has a number of implications in regards to the hero and heroine, and as the story line progresses, it’s clear that both characters are in too deep, whether it be due to the complications of their fake romance feeling a little bit too real or the fact that the hero is quite smitten with the heroine and has a difficult time downplaying those feelings or it could be the reasons behind Hannah’s need for a fake engagement or e ...more

J. Kenner, I think I love you. LOL

In Too Deep is the 10th, yes 10th, installment in Kenner's Man of the Month series. I can't believe we are almost at the end of this series. It feels like I just started reading them not too long ago.

Since the author chose not to reveal the male lead in her blurb, I won't spoil that for any readers since I am not sure if there was a reason behind the author leaving that out or not.

In Too Deep is the tenth book in J. Kenner’s Man of the Month series, and it is another winner. I knew from the outset I was going to enjoy this one – it is one of my favourite tropes, and it is taking place in one of my favourite series – and I was not disappointed. In truth, I feel as though these last few books are going to blow us out of the water – it’s my favourite tropes and my favourite characters, so big things will be coming as this series comes to a close.

These men of the month are just so hot and I love them all!! Each one has his own personality and each just totally works for me. And I love that each one somehow gets shanghaied into the contest, even when they really don't want to be.

I really really hope that at the end, these stories are all put into 1 book so that you can read the entire saga to save The Fix on Sixth all in one!

Only 2 more men in the month left - and they're 2 of my favorites!!! I can't wait for their stories!!!

Yet another great story in this Man of the Month series! I'm going to miss this when it's done! Maybe J. Kenner can do another series to continue the Fix on Sixth bar story!!! hehe
Don't miss out on the story of Mr. October, Matthew and the lawyer, Hannah who needs his help to get the insurance money from her father that is controlled by her step father.
Great story, all the feels, enjoy this one! 5 stars!!

5 Star Review In Too Deep (Man of the Month #10) by J Kenner

This is the tenth book in the series and is Hannah Donovan and Matthew Herrington’s story. In Too Deep is an extremely well written, fun quick story which grabbed my attention from the start.

Hannah is the best friend and new law partner of Easton Wallace. Everything is going well in their plans to establish their new practice until it isn’t. The money she planned to use from her pension fund suddenly cannot be accessed and her mother d

IN TOO DEEP by J. Kenner is book 10 in the Man of the Month series. This is the story of Matthew and Hannah. Each book in this series is a standalone. Hannah is a lawyer and good friends with Easton from book 9. Hannah needs the money her dad left her in his will to get the start up funds to start up a new law practice since her funds to start this new practice are tied up in her retirement and she cant cash it in. This is where Matthew comes in. In order for her to get her hands on the funds, s ...more

Final Score - 4 Stars!

Hannah is starting a new law firm. If only she had the money to help sign the leas as her mom and stepdad are holding it hostage. Matthew is the owner of a gym. He's a man who is just looking to settle down at this point in his life - wife & kids included. What happens when a meddling sister intervenes? A true friends to lovers story that's what!

Loved Matthew & Hannah's story. It was the perfect wind down to the Man of the Month series as there are just 2 bachelors left.

Another amazing addition to this awesome series! I loved reading Matthew and Hannah's story! It was sexy, fun and kept me turning the pages! This series is so much fun! I can't wait for Griffin's story to come out next! I have been dying to get his book since he was first introduced!

If you haven't started this series, I highly recommend it!

Hannah and Matthew's story is one for the books.

When Matthew agrees to be Hannah's fiancee for a weekend, to impress her parents so she can get her inheritance, he never imagines what it would lead to. Unfortunately, her parents see through the ploy which leaves Hannah questioning what is more important to her - true love or her career, because she's certain she cannot have both.

One of my favourites from this series so far! Matthew and Hannah had a friendship turned romance which is what I per

This is the tenth book in the series - and I would definitely recommend that you read them in order, as the characters and the underlying plot follow on through each book. This one in particular absolutely needs book 9 to be read.

So, this was definitely a good read, had steamy scenes, and some emotional ones as well. It was also another quick read, had me flipping pages (electronically) to keep reading and finding out what was going to happen. Matthew is so perfect for this type of a fake-dating scenario. Although he is nervous ahead of each meeting with Hannah's parents, he seems to be really great at thinking on his feet in a manner that saves him and Hannah from most of the questions and accusations her parents attemp ...more

I completely loved this! Matthew and Hannah were perfect.

She thinks that faking an engagement is the way to do it. Enter Matthew, Selma's brother. (Refresher, Selma is dating Easton, Hannah's partner in this new firm.)

I liked most of the book, but I can't stop feeling unsatisfied. I expected some answers when it came to Hannah's mother who changed her behavior when she remarried and why she was letting her husband control her to a point where she was hurting her daughter. Also, I wanna know what happened to all that money. I hope the author will give us an answer to that before the series ends which is gonna happen soon since we only have two months before the year ends. And speaking of that, is it bad that I ...more

In Too Deep is 10th book of Man of the Month calendar contest.

This story is about Hannah who is a laywer and who fall for Matthew, a high school drop out who owns 3 health gyms.

Matthew doesn't think he's good enough for Hannah, but Hannah proves him wrong.

Hannah is starting her own practice with her best friend Easton. Hannah needs 50,000 of start up money and needs to ask her mom and stepdad for it. But they will only give her the money if Hannah is in a relationship with a guy who they believe

Hannah needs an acceptable husband and Matthew is, well, available as he is the brother of a friend.

And, for some reason, I never really believed in the Happily Ever After ending for them. Do I think there was an attraction? I do. Do I think they will be together for the long run? No. They are too different, the connection outside of the "fake relationship" just never felt tangible to me.

Hello Matthew and Hannah! I loved this story. I'm sad that these super amazing books will be ending soon. I loved the chemistry and spark these two amazing characters had.

It was fun to watch these two fall. Hannah needs some help convincing her parents that she's on the right track. To do that, she needs a fake fiancé. Meet Matthew. And why would Matthew turn down the opportunity! Hannah is everything he's ever wanted and more. Now they just have

“He’d felt it—felt her—humming through him. Like he’d walked too close to a transformer, and his body had begun to buzz from the electricity in the air.”

Another great read that will have you turning the pages faster and faster since you will be so committed to these characters and wanting to see where their journey takes them. What appears on the surface is opposite personalities...yet when you really look they are both loyal, career oriented, passionate and like minded.

In Too Deep is an entertaining and sexy fake relationship that becomes all too real. Matthew is busy running his very successful gym with a few different locations around Austin. He's sexy, charming, generous, and a great advertisement for his gym. Hannah is finally ready to take that leap and partner with Easton in their own private law practice. She's smart, independent, and very focused on her career. Matt is definitely interested in Hannah, which means he is the best candidate for the fake t ...more

Attraction, Hannah only wanted one to think the funds to open the firm with her friend Easton. But when a fake engagement led to a little romance with her best friends brother will the stop at just one night or will she fight for me because Matthew thinks he's not good of enough for her. Watch this love story unfolded and see who wins in the end. Her Step-father or the guy she thinks she cannot have.

Still in love with this fun and sexy series revolving around all the great characters at our favorite bar! This is Matthew and Hannah's story and I loved these two together! There's a mutual attraction between these two, but they've never acted on it until Hannah needs Matthew to pretend to be her fiance. This leads us on a fun and sexy journey and leaves you rooting for these two. Hannah is willing to give up her dream to be with Matthew and I absolutely loved it! Can't wait for the next book!
