4 - April - Start Me Up

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.

About J. Kenner

J. 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.

J. Kenner

Start Me Up by J. Kenner is the 4th installment to her Man of the Month series and features Mr. April. Though I should mention these are standalone books and can totally be read as such, each book has some overlap on characters, but not enough to feel lost in the story.


Start Me Up features Nolan and Shelby. Nolan is a high school dropout who is funny and sexy. He has built up his radio show and has enough of a following to be a local celebrity. He may be good with the ladies, but he never lets them in. They only see what he lets them, never what he hides.


Shelby has a plan. She wants to find a man to share a future with. She wants the American dream. She wants to get married, have kids and build a future with someone. She has met a man that fills most of what she is looking for, but she also wants passion in her life and in her bed. When she finally lets loose after one night with Nolan, she knows what she is missing.


Nolan is such an easygoing and very likable guy. But he hides so much from others. Shelby is more of a serious and no-nonsense woman with plans. She does not see Nolan as her future at first, but a man with a mission is hard to ignore. Even if she is not his typical choice in a woman, there is something about her that draws him in.


In Start Me Up we get an opposite attract story about two people who may not be perfect on paper but still find a strong connection. Similar to the previous books, this one is a quick, sexy and entertaining read.
