*** BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & EXCERPT *** Sex Says by Max Monroe

Reactions: 

Blurb:

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

Lola

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. 



Reed

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.

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.

My Review 

Gorgeous cover with an equally gorgeous story. Drool worthy. Hilarious. Well written. And so unique. Max Monroe's best yet. 

Sex Says follows Reed and Lola. Lola is the author of the Sex Says column. She's quirky, outgoing and lives life on her own terms. Reed is a reformed bad boy. Never staying in one place or at one job long, he's always searching for something. When he reads one of Lola's articles, he decides to upload a random rebuttal to YouTube not expecting anyone to actually see it. Yet when it goes viral, he gets not only the satisfaction of proving his point but also of meeting Miss Sex Says herself. 

Lola is pissed. This Reed guy made her and her column look silly and she will not stand for that. But when she meets him, her hate turns to not so much hate as to like and when she least expects it to so much more. As Reed gets his own column Reed This, they begin to battle it out not just in the papers but as adversaries in much steamier ways too. But they are two very nontraditional people and sometimes that's just too much.

Max Monroe hit it out of the park with this one. There was seriously nothing I didn't love about it. It was all things different but perfectly wonderful. Lola and Reed were just enough alike and just different enough to keep me on the edge of my seat. I don't think I've ever read about a couple (or characters) like them before and I couldn't get enough.
