About J. Kenner

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.

Rounded up to 3 stars overall.

This is tough to rate as there is a little bit of everything in this book.

There is the cookbook which has some interesting recipes. Alas I have to say that recipe wise there are some good ones like the Lasagna Rolls. Other recipes are Skillet Buffalo Dip with Homemade Tortillas as well as drinks to go with the food and starters. This didn’t work for me because well I really do not like to cook and Texas food ain’t my kind of jam.

The recipes get 3 stars from me.

Slices of life come in between the recipes. We get a sneak peek Jenna & Reece which gets 3 stars from me.

Nolan & Shelby get 2 stars.

Spencer & Brooke get 3 stars.

I found it all to be mundane. I enjoyed Jenna & Reece’s book, as well as Nolan & Shelby’s and Spencer & Brooke’s but after that I don’t really care what happens to them.

The bonus story is of Tiffany and Eric. They both work at The Fix and have both had a crush on each other but Tiffany dated Eric’s brother for a while before he accepted a job out of Texas. There was never any chemistry between Ben & Tiffany.

Eric and Tiffany finally get together after months of dancing around one another. It’s all very insta everything then to add oil to the fire, Ben comes back and Eric takes something the wrong way and then Tiffany does and they get their HFN.

3 stars for Tiffany & Eric.

As always Ms. Jenner has written an upbeat read with chemistry, banter, sassy and sexy times with some angst but this one just isn’t for me.

It was a combination of all three. Cookbook, tidbits and stories.
