Every small town has its star-crossed couple. In Willowdale, North Carolina, it's Jeanne Clark and Brad Larsen, forever linked by a tragic accident years ago.
Sexy, simple, seductive. He'd arrange one blind date a month for her. Help her forget that he wasn't Mr. Right. That was the deal. If only it had worked.
Jeanne Clark is determined to marry and have children. Too bad the only man she wants is all wrong-her best friend and business partner, Brad Larsen. Their brief affair had been fiery hot but heartbreaking. Brad isn't the marrying kind. Children? He doesn't want any.
Hoping they can both move on, Brad proposes a New Year's resolution. She'll go out with a different guy each month, hand-picked by him-the Man of the Month. Jeanne doesn't do blind dates, but agrees to the fool idea. She's got to do something to get over Brad.
As the bad dates add up, Jeanne realizes how much she really loves Brad. And it's killing Brad to watch her go out with other men. As the tension between them builds, one reckless night threatens to change everything between them forever.

Man of the Month by Lisa Scott Willowdale Romance Book 2 Jeanne Clark loved Brad. Two years ago they had dated for a few weeks until he found out she wanted a family. He didn't. They became best friends and business partners in a catering business. When Jeanne confesses to being lonely, Brad offers to set her up with a date. One a month. Brad Larsen had to find someone for Jeanne so he could move on as well. They could never be together because she wanted the whole thing; kids, dogs, picket fence. His past led him to believe he wouldn't do well with that. Being the good friend he is, he'll find her the right guy. No problem, right? Loved this story. The characters jumped out of the pages and pulled me in. The emotions of the characters were easy to feel. This reader had trouble putting it down until the end. Brad and Jeanne's story starts in the Willowdale Romance Volume 1 in A Little Hanky Panky. Jeanne is also in the third book The Perfect Setup. If you enjoy series and knowing the back story you'll enjoy reading those three short stories first. Their friend Tonya still needs her happy ending in the third book, it will be coming out sometime in 2014. **Sexual content **Received through publisher/NetGalley for review
Read a few of the other short stories and Jeanne and Brad had me hooked with their first short story. When I realized that Lisa Scott dedicated a whole book to their story I had to buy and read. I read the book in 3 days and that was only because life happened (kids, work and sleep). I am enjoying the stories and have purchased several series...looking forward to reading them all!
