Blog Tour and Review for Sex Says by Max Monroe


From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Max Monroe comes a new standalone romantic comedy.


My name is Lola Sexton, and I’m a sex addict.
Okay…that’s a lie.
Truth is, I’m a serial dater turned dating and relationship columnist for The San Francisco Times. My readers call me Sex. Sex Says.
I love my job.
I love my life.
And I hate Reed Luca.


My name is Reed Luca, and I’m a liar.
Ironically, that’s the truth.
I’m 31, and my occupation is…well, complicated.
My favorite kind of woman comes in all shapes and sizes, but always has a big brain.
I’ve never hated anything.
Lola Sexton hates me.
Luckily, it’s a thin line between love and hate, and with my help, pretty Lola will only be able to straddle that line for so long.

     I feel this review for Sex Says by Max Monroe needs a "off the cuff" type of write up, since the characters are eccentric, have no filters and live by no rules.  Monroe's writing had me feeling as if I were a part of the story a friend or family member witnessing  the back and forth banter, the sexual tension and even the frustration, it is a journey I wanted to be a part of. I am not even sure if this is my first Max Monroe read but all I know is that I will be looking into this duo and their work. 

     Lola Sexton is a columnist and when her dating and relationship advice is being questioned by a person that seems to bullshit his way through life, she finds herself seeing red and that rage it's towards one gorgeous blue-eyed complicated man. Lola is independent and quirky, she has a lot to say but it's usually better when she's writing it down unless she's venting her anger towards one certain person that she seems to not be able to stop thinking about. Will she be able to put her hate aside and listen to what her body is craving, while trying to stay true to herself?

     Reed Luca, can easily put a grin on a woman's face, he lives life by the seat of his pants and says what's on his mind. This character I found to be frustrating freakingly hot as hell and hilarious at times. Let's not forget he has a way that you will find yourself wanting to rip your clothes off for him. I found myself even looking past his smoking habit because I fell in love with Reed and wanted to place him up there with top book boyfriends. I know that sounds crazy, but just wait and read Sex Says and you will find out for yourself. I seriously don't think he could do no wrong. Will Reed's living life by avoiding people's expectations be to much for Lola to handle?

     I found this story to be a great read that I would highly recommend, it is sexy, sarcastic and funny. I can see where the characters can be frustrating and it took me longer to realize that I am crazy about Reed, yes I actually pin pointed the exact moment that I said " Awww...I'm in love with Reed".  I loved the writing I felt as if I could feel Lola's free spirit and observe her surroundings as she saw them. Sex Say's is 4.5 Funfreakingtastic Star of a read!!!

Tiny Tease Excerpt:

Normally, I needed a face-to-face encounter to read a person’s intentions, but something about what I knew about Lola from her column and the careful way she’d arranged her words when emailing me spoke to violence I wasn’t sure I’d ever witnessed.
      Limb amputation, genital mutilation, and a healthy hock in order to leave a loogie behind on the tattered body.
      Would meeting up with the woman behind the words lead to anything other than some kind of police involvement? Though, really, I kind of miss them…
      No, no. I was supposed to be reformed.
      But even the converted could find themselves in trouble when they least expected it. An impulsive video on YouTube that led to millions of views was proof of that. My inbox was now cluttered with interview requests from various media sources, as well as hate mail from angered Sex Says fans who didn’t appreciate my candid view regarding their favorite dating and relationship column.
      I stared at the blinking cursor on the screen where I’d opened a return email and volleyed.
      Red wire, blue wire, red wire, blue wire…
      Goddamn, I couldn’t help myself.
      Fuck it. I’ll cut both of them.
