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.
This is a tough book for me to review for some reason. I’ve tried several times to start writing it, but I can’t seem to explain what I want to get across. So, I’m going to just lay out my likes and dislikes for you.
What I Liked:
- Lola. Her character was over the top unique, but I kind of loved her. Her zany personality was funny to me. I loved all the crazy things she did. Lola was so much fun.
- Lola’s relationship with her family. I loved how close they were and the funny things they shared with each other.
- The competition between Lola and Reese. Their hatred of each other was entertaining. It created some really witty banter.
- The way Reed pursued Lola. Again, witty banter.
What I Didn’t Like:
- How immature both Lola and Reed were for their ages. They were supposed to be in their 30’s, but read a lot younger. It would have been more believable if they were in their 20’s.
- Reed. I can’t put my finger on it, but there was something about the guy I didn’t care for. Maybe it was his smoking habit. I don’t know. He just didn’t make book boyfriend status for me.
- The writing was great, but it felt like something was missing to me. I didn’t connect to the story as much as I wanted to. I was expecting to be sucked in by the characters and their stories like I was in Max Monroe’s Billionaire Bad Boys series, but I wasn’t.
Overall, Sex Says was a cute romance filled with funny moments. Even though it wasn’t my favorite romance, it was still good and I would recommend reading it. It might have gained a higher rating from me if I hadn’t read the Billionaire Bad Boys series first. That series set a really high expectation for Max Monroe to hit.
