Start Me Up, the newest standalone in the Man of the Month Series by #1 New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner is LIVE!
Wicked days. Sinful nights.
Meet Mr. April.
A high school drop-out with only his twisted sense of humor and panty-melting good looks going for him, Nolan Wood has turned a small radio gig into a thriving career.
Now a local celebrity, Nolan never wants for female companionship. But he never gets too close. And he damn sure never lets them see the man—or the pain—behind the jokes.
Then a one-night stand changes everything.
Career-focused, goal-oriented, and buttoned-down accountant Shelby Drake isn’t the kind of woman who’d usually catch Nolan’s attention, but her soft mouth, hidden curves, and deep sensuality blow his mind. And after only one taste, he wants more.
But Shelby wants nothing more to do with him. And now the radio playboy is on a sensual mission to convince her that opposites really do attract.
Her pleasure is his passion.
**Start Me Up 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 novel in the series is a STANDALONE romance with a guaranteed HEA!
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Nolan is a good character. He is unashamed of what he does for a living and his is enjoying life. One night at a bar he meets Shelby and their chemistry is explosive. They end up in bed and things couldn't go further than that because Shelby has a boyfriend who is perfect for her life. He checks all her boxes for the perfect husband, so he must stay in the picture. They are not exclusive though since they didn't have the talk and what Shelby did with Nolan is justified. Not. I wasn't happy with her or her choice to keep having a thing with her boyfriend after she met Nolan. I am not happy with her and this book made me think that the series is not for me. I like the idea of the Man of the month contest, but the characters are deeply flawed and there is always one main character who is annoying me in each book. I must admit that I am excited about the next book though even if it is a second chance romance. That epilogue was the best part of the book. I want to see how they will get together and how everything is going to work out. One thing I would like not to see in one of the future books is something that has happened in each book so far. During the contest, one of the main characters will use it as an opportunity to declare his/her feelings for the other main character. For once I would like to just see the hero winning the contest while having the girl without much fanfare and declarations of love. I don't know if I misunderstood Shelby, but I didn't like her.

About J. KennerJ. Kenner (aka Julie Kenner) is the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and #1 International bestselling author of over seventy novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres. Though known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances (including the Stark and Most Wanted series) that have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, JK has been writing full time for over a decade in a variety of genres including paranormal and contemporary romance, “chicklit” suspense, urban fantasy, and paranormal mommy lit. JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” A five time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy). Her Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series (as Julie Kenner) is currently in development with AwesomenessTV/Awestruck. Her books have sold over three million copies and are published in over twenty languages. In her previous career as an attorney, JK worked as a clerk on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and practiced primarily civil, entertainment and First Amendment litigation in Los Angeles and Irvine, California, as well as in Austin, Texas. She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.
