Publisher Description


Wicked days. Sinful nights.

Her pleasure is his passion.

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.

Each book is a STANDALONE romance with an HEA and an overarching story about a group of friends and the local bar they love. Totally hot and utterly binge-worthy!

Start Me Up

This is the perfect title for this book. I love reading this book, it’s so fast moving, energizing and a welcomed surprise to find 2 characters that are the total opposite of each other and find out how madly in love they are. They bring out the best in each out and not to mention testes the limits just to spice it up.

Review: Man of the Month 4: Start Me Up

Start Me Up by J. Kenner is the fourth book in her new 12 book Man of the Month series. Told in dual POV this is where the gruff down-to earth alpha, Nolan, chases the buttoned-up and proper Shelby.

Shelby is not a prude but she is a very fastidious person. She has a plan for her future and Nolan does NOT fit into that plan. But even Shelby cannot deny the immediate attraction between them. Her plan is Alan but after meeting Nolan she is beginning to realize that the sparks she felt with him are nowhere near when she is with Alan.

Nolan has already been there done that with uptight women. At first glance he is ready to write Shelby off as hot but uptight, but upon further (and closer) inspection he realizes that they have a chemistry between them that he has never experienced with anyone else, ever.

Can a crass radio DJ make nice with the prim accountant?

Well-written and well-paced, this was another great read and I'm excited with how each of the upcoming characters are gently weaved into the plots in earlier stories without being obtrusive to the current story. Enjoy!

Straighlaced meets Player

The Man of the Month series all started when the local bar called The Fix on Sixth's loan was called in. Tyree, the owner, trusted the wrong guy to finance the start of the bar and now this guy wants the loan paid off in full or lose it.

Employees and friends do not want to see the bar close. Long time friends, Jenna, Reece and Brent jump in to invest in the bar and come up with ways to raise money and bring more customers in.

Jenna comes up with the idea to hold a Calendar of the Month contest for the public to choose each months model for the Calendar as a way to bring in more customers.

In the fourth book of the series we have Nolan, DJ for the local radio station that has been helping with advertisement of the Man of the Month Calendar contest and Shelby, a very straight-laced accountant.

We see the first hint to their attraction in book 2 through Brooke's POV and then again in Start Me Up in Shelby and Nolan's POV. What was suppose to be a one night stand, turns into so much more but could a couple be more opposite?

I love nerdy, quirky characters and we get that with Shelby. Nolan is the sexy, outspoken player that has no trouble finding a date. He's also a man who has some hidden insecurities of his own. On paper, they don't work but in real life they are a perfect fit for each other. Shelby just needs a little bit of convincing.

As long as you know the basics to the overall storyline in the series, you can easily read this as a standalone. I would recommend reading them all since I've enjoyed every book so far. I'm looking forward to Tyree's book next.
