Stuff & Nonsense: Falling For Max


21 December 2014

Falling For Max


Tori's parents went through a terribly acrimonious divorce a few years back and, ever since, she's sworn of romance and stuck with (completely satisfying) hookups. And then she meets the town serial killer, discovers he's trying to find a wife, and decides to help him become a more datable person.

Officially, this is Book Nine Stacey's The Kowalski Family series but don't let that deter you. I haven't read the other books in the series (tried the first book, Exclusively Yours, after meeting Stacey at the Big Book Getaway but DNF) and that didn't make Falling For Max any less enjoyable. Being friends of Max and Tori, the Kowalskis flit through, but this isn't their story and it isn't necessary to know or care about them. Instead it's about two "romance misfits" who fall in love while not trying to fall in love. It's quite cute (without being overly twee) and very funny in places. Really, I'd love to read more about Tori and Max. I enjoy romances with unconventional romantic leads and Exclusively Yours certainly had that!
