  • Straight-laced meets Outgoing 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. ARC provided by SocialButterfly PR

  • Swoonable Mr April

    Another installment in the Man of the Month series by J. Kenner, book 4 Start Me Up, is fantastic, sexy and a pleasure to read from start to finish. It had all the feels, I’ve come to expect from this author. My only peeve is that the stories are in 3rd person. Yeah, I know it’s been like this from book one, I keep hoping I will get over it, but my mind just keeps changing the story in my head, from 3rd to 1st. So, I guess it’s a testament to how much I’m enjoying these stories,that I’m still eagering awaiting each one. I really loved Nolan’s laid-back attitude and his radio show was a hoot. He’s a man who knows what he wants and goes for it. Shelby was getting ready to settle. She had a steady,if boring boyfriend, but she wanted a home and a family and knew that Alan could give her those things. So what if she had fantasies. Didn’t everyone? It’s not like they would come to life. But, what happens when they do? Nolan was that fantasy wrapped up in a hot and sexy package, but one night doesn’t make a lifetime. What will Shelby do when fantasy meets real life? Grab the bull by the horns, or head for the hills?

  • Meet Mr. April

    I'm still loving this whole series, but this was more of a 3.5 star read for me, and this is my least favorite book in the series. It's still a good book; a steamy fun quick read, but I felt like there was a lack of development in the relationship of it's star characters. This book goes all the way back to the first book time lapse wise and because the book is short, but the timeline in the book is the long without flashbacks, there's just something missing for me. Each book of the series so far has had some sort of romance cliché; i.e. friends first, second chance love, best friend's little sister; so I'm guessing this one is opposite attract (there might be a better tag for it). Nolan is a great character; sexy, funny, sweet, caring, and has had some bad moments, but nothing overly tragic. Shelby is the intelligent, good girl who dates the right guy, has a solid career on the rise. Nolan brings out her inner "bad" girl. When we get to see the characters together the chemistry is hot, but I feel like we don't seem them together a lot. Another comparison to the other books, is that the epilogue of each book sets up the next book; however, the epilogue from the previous book doesn't present it's self until towards the end of this book. Based on the epilogue of the previous book and how each book has worked out so far, I was expecting something different. This is still a solid read and if you've enjoyed the three previous books then your going to enjoy this.

  • 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!

  • Mr. April is here!

    Start Me Up is the 4th standalone in J. Kenner's fun and flirty new series- Man of the Month. Each book is about a new couple, and how these drool-worthy men are each voted as a man of the month for a calendar to save a local hotspot. Start Me Up is about sexy radio DJ Nolan, a bit of a local celebrity in the town, and also known for his player ways. That all changes the night he meets button-downed Shelby, a CPA goody-goody with a hankering for more spice in her life. These two may seem like opposites, but my-oh-my their chemistry blew me out of the water. The book reads fast, but I love the back stories, the getting to know you part, as well as Ms. Kenner's signature sexy times. I am also biting my nails in anticipation over the next couple, I absolutely cannot wait for more!

    Thanks for your feedback!
