Square Peg ● Round Hole







If you haven’t read anything by Max Monroe, you are missing an incredible storyteller. It’s actually Max and Monroe. Two incredible writers for the price of one. What started as a joint venture to write a book under the pseudonym, Max Monroe, turned into over forty books being written. They have the ability to bring you into the center of the story. The characters become long lost friends and there is a feeling of sadness when you get to the ending. That is the experience of a Max Monroe book.

Their new creation, What I Should’ve Said, deviates from their normal lightness. While there is plenty of humor and banter, there is a deep, emotional story that will tug at your heartstrings. It’s not an easy read as there are many troubling subjects that are addressed. While it deviated from the normal hilarious interactions with characters, it revealed a well-developed story that allowed me to connect with the characters on a deeper level. I felt their pain. I felt their joy. The success of a writer isn’t about how many copies they sell (but it is nice when a book sells). It is about the reader and how you touch their heart.

This story grabbed me and held me emotionally hostage (in a good way) until the very end. Max Monroe….thank you for giving me a book with lots of grit and integrity. It does touch on a few subjects like abortion, child trafficking, and a character’s death, so if those are triggers for you, stay clear. Visit www.authormaxmonroe.com for all of their books!
