Synopsis

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.

Review

Lola Sexton is a quirky oddball of a character who happens to write the dating/romance help column for the San Francisco Times. When freedom loving Reed Lucas. When Reed happens upon one of Lola’s advice column articles, Sex Says, he is astonished how completely wrong she is. So much so that he does something he never has before, he makes a You Tube video explaining all the ways she has it all wrong. Who would guess that overnight the video would go viral and Lola would have her very own nemesis.

There were many things I enjoyed in this standalone novel, the interesting characters, the enemies to lovers storyline and the witty banter to name a few. It was easy to want the sexy man that is Reed Lucas. I will say though for me there simply was too much internal dialogue and the book as a whole was a bit too long. At times I felt like I was lost in this fresh romance and at times I felt the scenes went on too long and made the flow slow to a slightly distracting pace.

Still, I read the book in a day and was thoroughly entertained. I have always enjoyed Max Monroe’s writing style and I will be looking forward to all of their upcoming projects.
