Before Austin’s hotspot The Fix on Sixth became known for its sexy and fun Man of the Month calendar contest, the fictional downtown bar had already developed a reputation for fabulous drinks and mouthwatering bar bites—exactly the kind of venue to take a date and strike up a romance. Now it’s your chance to see exactly what’s on the menu … and to get a peek at the private ...more

Mindy Lou's Book Review

Shelves: 2018
Bar Bites is a cross of the Man of the Month cookbook, 3 couple update stories and 1 new couple's story.

There is quite a few recipes provided that I really want to try out. I'll come back to this review later to post what I think of the recipes I try.

I like getting little epilogues on couples. They are almost better than their stories because we get to see the couples already past the angst of trying to get together and we get to see them happy and in love.

The author gave us a glimpse into the
Rounded up to 3 stars overall.

This is tough to rate as there is a little bit of everything in this book.

There is the cookbook which has some interesting recipes. Alas I have to say that recipe wise there are some good ones like the Lasagna Rolls. Other recipes are Skillet Buffalo Dip with Homemade Tortillas as well as drinks to go with the food and starters. This didn’t work for me because well I really do not like to cook and Texas food ain’t my kind of jam.

The recipes get 3 stars from me.

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Well, this is a first for me … reviewing a recipe book with a few novella's thrown in for good measure. J. Kenner and Suzanne M. Johnson make some really interesting and flavorful drinks and dishes throughout this book (yes, had to try at least one of them). And, then, they gave us three new short stories that finished off some previous ones and one new story set in The Fix on Sixth but, unfortunately, he wasn't a Man of the Month.

Reece & Jenna … the perfect ending to our first Man of the Month.

Upon finishing J. Kenner’s Man of the Month series, I found myself unwilling to say goodbye to the series. It has been my addiction for months, diving into each book as they’re released. Fortunately, there was a little extra for me to dive into. Bar Bites provides us with recipes, what happened next stories, and a new story. It’s a great extra for anyone who wants some more from the series.

The recipes may not be for everyone, but they contain some interesting and easy to follow options. The what

I have to be honest here. I didn't try any of the recipes, but few seemed interesting so I bookmarked them. Also, I didn't bother reading Reece and Jenna's short story because as some of you might know, I hate these two. Jenna deserved better. Now, that I have gotten these two things off my chest I can begin my review.

I liked this collaboration between the two authors. I agree that the recipes and the bar worked well and it's a good combination. We have two short stories between the recipes and

Food, drinks and some updates on my favorite couples in this fun, sexy, flirty Man of the Month series? Count me in!!

I was so happy to see more with Reese and Jenna, Nolan and Shelby and Spencer and Brooke. Plus a sneak peek at Eric and Tiffany? Some serious swooning going on around my house this weekend!

Let's not forget some delicious sounding recipes for food and drinks that I cannot wait to try.

Bar Bites definitely whet my appetite for food and drinks and more Man of the Month. I can't wait
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Bar Bites J. Kenner
This is a great book that goes with the Man Of The Month series. It starts off with some great sounding recipes that I must try. After a few pages of the recipes we catch up with the group of characters that we have met throughout the series.
What can be better with good reading, catching up to characters of the series....the recipes. I am so happy they were added!
Jazmyne- Ramblings of a Bookworm
This book is the perfect combination! It's filled with short stories that give you all the feels and some UNBELIEVABLE recipes! I'm not sure if this has been done before, but MAN, OH MAN, we should do this more often!

I am a pretty avid cook. Sadly, I usually get stuck in a rut of fixing the same old recipes I've been preparing for the last hundred years...okay, maybe not a hundred, but it's been a while. I love cookbooks, but I rarely take the time to look through them, or when I do, find them

I have to admit…I’m not much of a foodie or a drinker for that matter, but I love the atmosphere that’s created in a bar, and The Fix on Sixth definitely fits the bill when it comes to offering its customers a place to come together for some laughs, some adult beverages, some amazing appetizers, and one heck of a good time.

And because the bar and its crew offer a menagerie of eats, drinks, and merriment, its clientele keeps coming back for more, and it’s this eclectic bunch that has worked toget

5 Star reviews of Bar Bites: A Man of the Month Cookbook by J Kenner & Suzanne M. Johnson

What’s better than sharing a great meal with loved ones and good friends? Not a whole lot I’m thinking, so to me this was a total winner from the start.
Bar Bites is filled with a few scenes about some of our favourite couples from the Man of the Month series, not to mention a couple of new characters, along with some truly spectacular mouth-watering and inspiring recipes which will leave you begging for mor

Bar Bites by J. Kenner is a multifaceted book. The cookbook portion of it gives recipes and anecdotes for the fun dishes and drinks that we have heard about throughout the Man of the Month series. Added to that are added epilogues from some favorite characters.

I enjoyed the short story that we are given about Eric and Tiffany. They have been working together at The Fix on Sixth and pining after each other for a while. Hanging over them is TIffany's previous relationship with Eric's brother, but

I loved the idea of this book. It combines three extended epilogues to some of the Man of the Month stories, a new novella and also offers a collection of cute little recipes for cocktails and what would be bite-sized serving of various foods. There's enough variety to have something for everyone. I didn’t have time to try out a recipe yet, but I’m definitely looking forward to trying some of them.

We get extended epilogues to the stories of Reece and Jenna, and of two favorite couples of mine, N

J. Kenner

Oohh this was a little surprise for me, I'm so used to the Man Of The Month that I didn't realise very this was a recipe book. But with that came, a little extra, I was very happy to see. That being, there was more of all of your favourites, and their continued happy ever afters.

I'm not sure what I loved more, the recipes I'm going to steal or those bonus stories. More warm and fuzzies in a perfect series for me.
Bar Bites.....WOW! Talk about steamy!!! This was my first Man of the Month story and Ms. Kenner did not disappoint on the hotness between Tiffany and Eric.

This was a really quick read for me and the fun part.....I get to cook some recipes based on the book!!!!

While I loved the bonus sense we got with Reece/ Janna, Spencer/ Brooke and Shelby/ Nolan and of course the new one At the end with Tiffany and Eric but I really think this should of come out after he rest. Because if gave us a preview of who Griffin and Brent will end up with and it kinda took the joy of finding that out in there books. That was my one big downfall to this.

A mix of everything from the whole series brought right to your fingertips. Recipes for treats and drinks, many of which we heard about throughout the stories, are divided up into months- much like our men. A few stories come into play as well, but spoiler alert! so do not read this unless you've started the man of the month series. Delicious in every way, a beautiful wrap up. ...more

While not as fulfilling as the main installments to the series, this was a sweet way to end things since there were a few loose ends to be tied up.  That and well, it's always nice to know how to make the food and drinks that i've read about for months now .

In this interesting version of a book, we get 4 novellas, one about Reece/Jenna, one about Spencer/Brooke, one about Nolan/Shelby and one about Eric/Tiffany.  Each gives us a glimpse into their story that we didn't have already (a continuatio

I had a lot of fun with this review because it isn't really as much of a review as it is DINNER! Haha

I was really lucky to be accepted to be on this tour because it involves two of my favorite things, books and cooking.

Received an ARC for an honest review.

Now this is the kind of cookbook I can get behind. It's got some great, easy to accomplish recipes that we've been hearing about throughout the Man of the Month series. But even better is that it's interspersed with a few scenes of some of our favorite couples! We get to catch up with some of our favorite couples (I'm looking at you Jenna and Reece!), but we also get the added benefit of a brand new couple!

Your mouth will water with the little Bites of flavor that Suzanne Johnson concocts with J. Kenner in Bar Bites: Man of the Month Cookbook.

Fanatically excited that we get to dive back in to certain relationships from the Fix on Sixth and I have to say it was needed. We all have fallen in love with these couples that Kenner has embedded within our hearts, but to entangle ourselves back into certain lives made me very giddy! Out of the certain couples that we rekindle with, my favorite was Reece

Lovely recipes and 4 novelettes

Bar Bites is a wonderful addition to the Man Of the Month series. It is unique, featuring recipes for wonderful drink concoctions and good ‘ole bar food. They sound so delicious with easy to follow steps and simple ingredients.

And I really loved catching up with characters from the previous books in the series. We get a look into their lives away from the bar.

Bar Bites is a cookbook with “Slices of Life.” The slices are very short stories (epilogues) with Reece and Jenna; Nolan and Shelby; Spencer and Brooke; and a short story about a couple I’m sure you’ve been routing for. All these stories occur after the Man of the Month calendar is completed and into a new year. Each story was fun and sexy. While you know everyone is getting their HEA, I felt like there were a couple spoilers. Even though you can pretty much figure it out from the books so far, ...more
