The Day I Stopped Falling for Jerks by Max Monroe ~ Review

The Day I Stopped Falling for Jerks, the first in the fun and flirty Jerk Duet from New York Times bestselling author Max Monroe is coming October 18th!

One of the BEST reads of the year!

Told via a podcast ( a brilliant idea and will make this a hit on Audible) The Day I Stopped Falling for Jerks is sheer book perfection in my eyes. All the right ingredients for my favorite kind of read. Funny, snarky, sexy, fast-paced, and filled with real emotions.

Lucky Wright is very unlucky when it comes to love. She works as a writer for an online magazine, not un-similar to Buzzfeed. Lucky tells us all about her work consisting of two writing jobs. One, a three month trip following a surf competition and covering it via the eyes of a novice. Second, Lucky has decided to review and recount her past dating mistakes by writing letters to all her ex-boyfriends. It turns out to be a great way to figure out her past dating mistakes as well as understand why things turned out the way that they did with each.

Along with this amazing discovery in self-assessment, Lucky is trying very hard not to fall for a new jerk… this is where things get complicated.

The Day I Stopped Falling for Jerks is book one of a duet written by Max Monroe. It’s my first read by this author and it certainly won't be my last. I love the writing style, humor, and heart of The Day I Stopped Falling for Jerks. I simply can not wait for more! (Book #2 coming October 25th)


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.

A special gift for our readers!

Just in time for the holidays!

Reader, designer, and founder of Literary Book Gifts , Melissa Chan reached
out to us with a special gift just for our readers! 
To find out more about her and how you can snag a deal, keep reading!

When did you start your business?

I began Literary Book Gifts earlier this year and launched the website not long after that.

What made you go for book/literary themes?
I love to read. Reading has always been a way for me to not only relax but to explore different ideas, characters, and stories. Literature is amazing because two different people can read the same book and have such varying opinions about what they read. This can bring about a large amount of positive discussion between readers. The designs being on shirts and totes have a way of spontaneously starting conversations about the books and the themes within them. I think talking about what we read is important alongside reading itself so this is why I choose for literary themes to be on the shirts.

What are some of your favorite reads? Current or past.
I read Jane Eyre in high school and I absolutely loved it. I'd never read anything for the school curriculum before that was so interesting and enjoyable. As for current reads, I am a fan of Harry Potter, as well as J.K. Rowling's other literary works.

What is the fabric blend of your shirts? And what sizes do you go up to?
I am pleased to say that the shirts are all cotton which is great because they are breathable and durable. With the exception of some of the heathered colors that have varying amounts of polyester.
The sizes of the shirts come in a wide range. Women's shirts run about a size small and are available from XS - 3XL, and the men's or unisex style is available from S - 5XL.

What is the size of the bags and how many good books can one fit inside?
The bags come in three different sizes. I think this offers a great variety because each size has such a different use case. I would say the medium tote bag has enough room for about six to eight good books with a little extra room for snacks!

What is the turn around time between order and delivery?
Orders take about one to two weeks to be delivered. Every order comes with tracking information so you can view it's journey to your doorstep.

What would be my cut off date if ordering for the holidays?
Order at least two weeks in advance for USA orders, go for three weeks to be extra safe.

How long will the KTBOOKREVIEWS20 promotion last?
I am happy to say that this promotion does not expire. Readers of KT Book Reviews can receive a 20% discount on their order in the store, and there is no minimum needed to use the code.

Book description

Princess Theodora Isabella Victoria of Drieden of the Royal House Laurent is so over this princess thing.

After her fiancé jilted her on their wedding day, she’s finally back home after spending four months in exile—aka it’s back to press conferences, public appearances, and putting on a show for the Driedish nation as the perfect princess they expect her to be. But Thea’s sick of duty. After all, that’s what got her into this mess in the first place.

So when she sneaks out of the palace and meets a sexy Scot named Nick in a local bar, she relishes the chance to be a normal woman for a change. But just as she thinks she’s found her Prince Charming for the night, he reveals his intentions are less than honorable: he’s the brother of her former fiancé, a British spy, and he’s not above blackmail. As Thea reluctantly joins forces with Nick to find out what happened the day her fiancé disappeared, together they discover a secret that could destroy a centuries-old monarchy and change life as they know it.

Funny, fast-paced, and full of more twists and turns than the castle Thea lives in, The Royal Runaway is a fresh romantic comedy that will leave you cheering for the modern-day royal who chucks the rulebook aside to create her own happily-ever-after.
