Release Blitz & Review: The Day The Jerk Started Falling by Max Monroe

BOOK TWO_JERK DUET_TheDayTheJerkStartedFalling_Cover

The Cover: I love a cover where it showcases the leading lady, they are rare and far in between and this one of the best covers I have seen in a long time. I love the model and the look on her face, the font and coloring all go so well together. It’s perfect! 

Basics: The Day The Jerk Started Falling was released on October 25th 2018, is part of the Kindle Unlimited program and is the second book in the Jerk Duet. Genre wise The Day The Jerk Started Falling belongs to contemporary romance and romcom. 

Description: My name is Oliver Arsen, but my mates call me Ollie. I live hard and love harder, and it’s love that usually gets me in the most trouble.  According to the greater population, I’m the ultimate jerk.

My affection tends to be short-lived—a quality I’ve been assured multiple times by the fairer sex isn’t becoming—and the leaving part of loving and leaving has always come natural. At least, it used to. Until her. Luciana Wright.

She’s an American bombshell and my sister’s best friend—a woman so wrong for me, it’s written in the waves. And she’s the reason we’re all here. The reason I have to go back to explain how it all went wrong. To the day the jerk started falling.

Overall thoughts: I feel like there is a certain recipe when it comes to writing a great duet and depending on the genre of book it’s really not that hard. Yet there are some authors that attempt to do duets and completely miss the mark. Max Monroe are not those authors. 

The romcom continues between Luciana and Ollie in The Day The Jerk Started Falling! But this time the point of view (POV) is from Ollie, his side of the story; which I found to very refreshing but in romance books we always don’t get to hear from the male perspective and since this was a duet I thought it was perfect. One book from the woman’s POV and the second from the male’s POV. Brilliant! 

The Day The Jerk Started Falling is laugh out loud funny and honestly Passionflix needs to get a hold of the rights for these books ASAP because they would make the PERFECT romcom movie that rivals How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days or He’s Just Not That Into You. No seriously this book is that good and hilarious! Despite the humor I really think any twenty something person and even older can relate to the sort of situation in this duet and enjoy it immensely. The Day The Jerk Started Falling is definitely one of the funniest romcom books of the years and I’m really grateful I had the chance to review it!

Release Blitz & Review: The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks by Max Monroe

BOOKONE_JERKDUET_TheDayIStoppedFallingForJerks_FinalCover
The Cover: I think this cover is okay, the model is attractive and all but there’s nothing super wow about it and his expression is a bit strange. Overall it’s a nice cover but it’s not a cover that makes me want to buy the actual book but stick with owning the Kindle version instead.

Basics: The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks was released on October 18th 2018 and is 328 pages long. Genre wise The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks belongs to contemporary romance and rom com.

Description: I’m Luciana Wright. Everyone calls me Lucky, but when it comes to love, I’m anything but. I have a long history of dating the wrong men. You know the ones I’m talking about. The beautiful, charming guys who are quite literally too good to be true. The ones who are impulsive in love and prefer short flings over long-term relationships.

I’m talking about the jerks. The guys who taste so good, but are so very bad. After going through the most ridiculous breakup in the history of breakups, I thought I’d learned my lesson. I officially put myself into jerk rehab and committed to changing my ways.

But, let’s be real here, love is never that easy. Especially when an arrogant, charming, he-devil of a sexy alpha man gets involved. Aussie accent. Tanned skin. Muscular, surfer bod. Gorgeous brown eyes. And the kind of sexy smile that brings women to their knees.

Oh, did I mention that he’s also my best friend’s brother? Yeah. This story, my story, it’s a real doozy you guys. The day I stopped falling for jerks, I met Oliver Arsen—the biggest jerk of all.

Overall thoughts: This was my first Max Monroe and it did not disappoint! I was really intrigued by the premise of this book and the introduction of The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks caught my full attention. The authors explained that they were inspired by “jerks” they had encountered when they were younger and everything clicked.

Of course during some point of our lives we all have that one crush OR that one person that is so mean to you, but in reality is acting like a jerk because they like you. Doesn’t really add up and it’s completely counter productive but hey, that’s how human brains work unfortunately. (Hence the reason why I wish I was a cat instead most days.)

Luciana is one heck of a relatable character that will in some shape or form I personally feel like the reader will connect with. She’s funny, strong willed and again so relatable, I’m really looking forward to the next book The Day The Jerk Started Falling

I am currently reading The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks duet by Max Monroe! This is my first Max Monroe book and I’m super excited to be reading it! 

Blurb: I’m Luciana Wright. Everyone calls me Lucky, but when it comes to love, I’m anything but. I have a long history of dating the wrong men.
You know the ones I’m talking about.

The beautiful, charming guys who are quite literally too good to be true. The ones who are impulsive in love and prefer short flings over long-term relationships. I’m talking about the jerks. The guys who taste so good, but are so very bad.

After going through the most ridiculous breakup in the history of breakups, I thought I’d learned my lesson. I officially put myself into jerk rehab and committed to changing my ways.

What did you recently finish reading? The Necromancer’s Bride by Brianna Hale! Oh my goodness! This book was a novella but it completely blew my socks off! It is the perfect dark romance/Halloween read! 

Blurb: When I was a child he brought me back from the brink of death. Since that day I have borne his mark, a black star in the center of my left palm. The villagers say it brands me as evil. I think it means something far worse. It marks me as his.

The disease that nearly killed me has returned to the village and children are dying. I’m the only one who dares to climb the mountain and learn his secrets. In exchange I’m to clean his house and help with his strange experiments, but Meremon wants more. He wants me. And it isn’t long before I discover that his demands are as twisted as his experiments.

Warning: This story is a dark fantasy romance with scenes of non-consent and dubious consent. Additionally, Meremon is a necromancer and enjoys unusual things. Some sex scenes might be strange or creepy for some readers.

As always with Brianna Hale books, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily ever after. THE NECROMANCER’S BRIDE is a novella of 16,000 words.

What do you think you’ll read next? I have been fortune enough to receive ARC’s of Royally Yours by Emma Chase and Long Road Home by Stacey Lynn! Once I’m finished with The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks duet I’ll be diving into these bad boys! I’m super excited! 

Royally Yours Blurb: Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco.

It’s a big deal. When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning. What she isn’t… is married. It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want.

Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty. Even Queens. Especially them.

** Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.

And a sacred promise keeps him there. To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure. Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever. Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story. This is theirs.

Pre-order Royally Yours here ←

Long Road Home Blurb: I left home ten years ago, promising myself I’d never return to the place where I had never been accepted. I was despised and ridiculed for circumstances completely beyond my control.

But when my grandmother passes away, I’m forced to return to Kansas. I will have to face everyone who hated me. But they’re not who I’m most afraid of. My biggest fear? Facing him.  Jordan Marx. The boy I once loved more than life itself. The boy who defended me from them. The boy I’d disappeared on, leaving him nothing more than a horrible nasty lie and hastily scribbled note.

When Jordan finds out the secret I have carried for so long, I’m in for the battle of my life.  Or so I thought. I might have wandered for years on a path riddled with thorns but with Jordan by my side, taking the long road home means more than reuniting with the only man I’ve ever loved. It might just mean finding myself, and the family I never thought I could ever have along the way.
