Blog Tour + Review: 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.


Ohhhh, I absolutely loved this book!
So different, so unique, but really amazing!

I have to admit that I needed the first few chapter to really enter the world of Reed and Lola. 

I needed a moment to understand what this book was going to be, the unique characters and their non-conformistic lives.

I can't properly describe Reed or Lola, because both of them have so many different aspects of their personalities. But I loved how they didn't submit to the common living rules, they didn't behave in some certain ways only to blend with all the other people.

They followed their own paths firm in their beliefs, without worrying of the judgement of other people.

I really liked what this book brought to the readers. Yes, the focus was the love story between Lola and Reed, but their personalities played a HUGE part in this book. It was like their personalities had their own personal story, how they clashed and also how they meshed.

I think that to fully understand the awesomeness of this book everyone should read it and really think about it. It's not a simple love story, it's so much more! And I could say that it brings also awareness about some aspect of our lives, absolutely.

And about this, one particular stood sentence stood out to me: " I hated what I was observing. My friends acting like people they weren't, hiding the very best parts of their personalities with these facades....".. This is what Lola thought about her friends when they were chatting and flirting with some strangers. And I actually think that this really happens, sometimes, when we want to leave a mark on someone... it's like we try too much, leaving our real selves behind in favour of someone different, created to impress, and this facade sometimes bring us to behave even against our real nature, just because we want to make an impression. And I think this is what could happen in many different social situation.

One last thing: don't be scared by my " serious" thoughts about this book.... Sex Says is still a Max Monroe's book, so absolutely funny, with hilarious scenes and swoony moments too!
