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.

It's no secret that I LOVED Max Monroe's Billionaire Bad Boys series. I couldn't recommend those books fast enough or often enough in my opinion. When Max Monroe started hinting at Sex Says I was intrigued, but nervous. I loved their first books so much but this was going to be a whole new setting, a whole different group of people and I was a little afraid I wouldn't love them as much as I loved their other characters and books. I love being proved wrong since Sex Says is just another amazing showing of the talent these two authors have.

Lola was such a fun, quirky character. She thinks outside the box, has interesting views on transportation and is overall not what most people would expect in a romance novel heroine. But that's what makes it work here. I want to go to a roller skating rink with her and take class with a group of seven year olds-just because I can. I was expecting a totally different character based on her tone in the blurb/teasers but she's perfect.

Reed. Sigh, Reed. I'll be claiming him as a book boyfriend for sure. He charmed me from the beginning-even as he was pissing off Lola. His views on things had me questioning how I looked at people and I even discussed some of his opinions with my husband. I loved Reed's determination to win Lola; he was intrigued by her and just kept pushing and pushing until he understood her. The truly fascinating thing for Reed was that once he understood Lola he truly understood himself. Seeing that transformation was amazing.

As always, the secondary characters added to the story in such a fun way. I loved the normalcy of their families set against Reed and Lola's non traditional way of thinking. It was very well done. I think Lola's sister and brother in law may have been my favorite secondary characters; I wouldn't mind seeing their story...hint hint.

For me, Max Monroe hit it out of the park again. They took what I was expecting this book to be and turned it into so much more. If you've read their other work (and if you haven't, why haven't you? Seriously. I'm not judging or anything...ok, maybe a little bit just because they're so good) you'll love this. If you haven't, you'll love this too. I highly recommend it.

*Reed Luca is an asshole. No one wants to be his spirit animal.

**Okay. I wrote that. Maybe someone would want to be his spirit animal. I guess. Maybe. Sorry. (Not sorry.)—Lola

  1. I love Max Monroe, and even though I miss Kline, Thatch, and Wes, I sure did like Reed a whole lot.
