When Vanessa first told me about this book I was immediately intrigued as the age old "men and women can't be just friends" is something that interests me having grown up with mainly male friends and I do truly believe they can be though I am a sucker for when too best friends fall in love. Anyway... the premise without giving too much away is that Max & breezy have grown up together, are best friends, and now as adults they live together. As great as they find it, this is hard for Breezy as whenever her boyfriends meet Max (who is HOT AS), they get weird for various reasons (don't understand how they can live together and just be friends or intimidated by Max, I refer to previous comment on hotness) and unfortunately end up dumping the lovely Breezy.
When Breezy's latest boyfriend finally meets Max and dumps her, Breezy is a mess and hence the challenge commences. well - what can I say, I have never seen so many innuendos in a standard conversation and it is absolutely hilarious. The fact they are both attracted to each other really ups the game trying to see who cracks first and will the stakes being high for the loser, they really put each other too the test. I laughed so much, even disturbed my husband one or two times with how much I was laughing (he isn't a booky so doesn't get how I get so involved in the book).
In summary, I would say this book is amazing, the characters (not just the main ones but the support characters like Maggie and her chocolate god are also amazing and complement the story well) are really relatable and you do get swept away in to the story. You laugh with them, cry with them and feel the frustrations as the game escalates. I couldn't put it down, read it in one sitting and was gutted when it ended.

Series: It Had 2 B U
Author: V Kelly
Designation: Standalone Full-Length Novel, NO Cliffhanger
My Rating: FIVE DIVINELY ENTERTAINING STARS*****
Oh my! I loved, loved, loved this book! This is my first experience reading V Kelly but I can guarantee, it won't be my last! This is hands down, the most delightfully entertaining book I've read this year and that's saying a lot since I read a ton of books! Innuendos is a fast paced, well crafted, fun-filled, standalone full-length romantic comedy filled to the brim with outrageous humor, snappy dialogue, heartbreaking angst and heartwarming romance. The narrative is beautifully written in the first person with clearly defined alternating his and her points of view. The dialogue is smart, witty, contemporary, well executed and flows effortlessly. But the piece de resistance is the magnificent well developed cast of characters who grabbed my undivided attention right out of the gate and completely captured my heart! I fell head over heels in love with the two protagonists of this story, handsome personal trainer Maxwell 'Max' James McGowan and beautiful law office clerk Breeanne 'Breezy' Nicole Hicks. They were engaging, sexy, laugh-out-loud funny and their sexual chemistry was off the charts, smokin' hot. They were absolutely magnificent! Once I started reading, I simply could not stop. I laughed with them, cried with them, empathized with them, screamed at them and even cheered for them. Several times my heart stuttered and almost stopped, and all the while the pages as well as the time flew with hours passing seemingly as minutes until I reached the very last line. And I loved every single second! What did I love about this story? Everything! What didn't I like? Not a darn thing! Would I recommend this book? You bet and I am but only for adult readers since it does contain explicit language and some dreamy love scenes. Will I read this author again? Absolutely!
Breezy and Max have been best friends for ten years and roommates for the last four. What girl wouldn't love living with a hot, handsome guy, right? Breezy loves sharing her life and her home with Max; truly, she does. There's just one little problem - and it's six feet of well packaged muscle! Every single guy she dates, cuts bait and runs for the hills once they meet her hunky roommate! Well, maybe there's actually two little problems; the second one being that said handsome roommate is a total player! But they've stood by each other through thick and thin, always caring more for each other than either ever wanted to admit. When one crazy bet gets totally out of hand, they soon come to realize they're both more than a just little attracted to each other. Their barrage of sexual innuendos leads to an explosive encounter, which not only rocks both their worlds, but also leads them to the realization that their relationship as well as their lives have changed forever. Will one night ruin the thing they value most? Or will Max and Breezy discover their friendship has grown into the kind of love they each have unknowingly desired? We'll see! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Corny, cheesy, kinda campy... sets the tone for the book. Synopsis hints at a book filled with laugh out loud moments.
Alternating first-person POVs, clearly defined. Max and Breezy have been best friends for ten years, living together for the last three. While Max acts as the man-whore to cover up his growing love for Breezy, she can't seem to keep a boyfriend once they've met "the chiseled Adonis with an eight-pack". The result of Breezy's latest boyfriend dumping her? A drunken bet: No sex or even mentioning the word. Let the games begin!
The lead characters are a little immature, mostly in a good natured, silly way. Their chemistry is fun and flirtatious. There are enough secondary characters to be a supportive filler without overwhelming the primary couple or story. I did notice the word "sex" WAS used at the end of the seventeenth chapter (approx. 54%) by Breezy, but neither of them seemed to realize it.... with the stakes as they were, Max SHOULD HAVE honed in on that immediately. Max slips at Breezy's birthday and says the no-no word between presents and cake, but no one seems to catch that either. Other than that, the dialogue and interaction was light and enjoyable. To that point. Thereafter, there are moments of passion, heartbreak, and seriousness. There are conflicts, this is not all sunshine and roses. Predictability is rather low. The conclusion is solid and satisfying, the Epilogue ties things up nicely. If I'd not had to set this book aside to meet a blog obligation, I probably would have read this in one sitting. The writing was just too smooth and the character chemistry was too enjoyable to want to put down for any length of time. I'm so very happy that I bought this book and took the time to enjoy a "just for me" book, it did NOT disappoint.
Rating: 4.25 [R] ~ Score: 4.5 ~ Stars: 4.5
Breeanne, also know as Bree or as Max calls her Breezy, has been best friends with her roommate, Max for ten years. They met in high school, went to college together, and moved in as roommates and now have lived together for 3 years. Breeanne has not always been the confident gorgeous spitfire you see today. No, Max built her up, made her see how bright she shines, and treats his best friend like the queen she is. Yes, you heard right, HIS! And that's where all the problems lie. Every guy Bree dates dump her when they met her sexy beast of a roommate/ best friend. After, her latest break up and a drunken fight between the two, they make a bet. Bree bets Max that she can go without sex longer and without speaking the words longer than Max. If Bree wins she gets a puppy; if Max wins he gets to kiss her for 30 mins. Both determined to win, they play a vast game of using innuendos in hopes the other will break.
Bree is so much fun! Sadly, most things go over her head and I'm sitting here laughing so hard because no, she's not the brightest crayon in the box. Bless her heart, we love her anyways.
Max is such an awesome guy (I think I need to fan myself a little, give me a minute) He treats every woman like she is special. I feel if I go to deep into him I might spill more beans then I should.😉
My favorite character had to be Maggie though. I love her like no other. Who knew she was such a wildcat! I was expecting a timid self conscious woman. Heck No! We got us a hilarious firecracker. I can't wait for her book.
This has become one of my favorites. Now I'm off to devour an Accent Hussy, YAY!
-This book is *very* funny. The innuendos are awesome (I particularly liked how clueless Breezy was about some of the more subtle ones).
-Max is great. In fact, even though he is a manwhore, he treats the women well and is not at all superficial. He is also pretty much the most generous friend alive. He goes way above and beyond to be there for Breezy and is willing to do just about anything to make her happy.
-The secondary characters were great. I want Maggie to be my friend. I picture Dashawn as looking like Dolvett from Biggest Loser, so I want him to stand in front of me and flex while I drool and... click my mouse. ;-p
-The chemistry is hot.
That last one leads to the BAD:
-I was not a fan of the explicit, hot sex between the heroine and someone other than the hero. It made sense, since Breezy was in a satisfying relationship before she got together with Max, but I would have preferred that their sex life be alluded to and the intimate details left to her connection with Max.
-Breezy was 27 but had the emotional maturity of a 15 year old. She was also a leech. She just sucked and sucked all the kindness, goodness, and support from Max. I know she had to have had wonderful qualities because Max didn't seem the type to be blindsided just by her beauty, but she got WAY more out of the relationship than he did. She also suffered from a mild case of TSTL (too stupid to live).
-There were a lot of editing issues. There were a few incorrectly used words (the hominem was used instead of the correct word) and a LOT of punctuation issues, especially with the use of quotation marks.
Overall, I did enjoy this book, although I definitely didn't love it. It was a very entertaining way to spend a few hours but I wish Breezy had been a little more deserving of Max.
This book is freaking hilarious!! I was laughing so hard at some points that the people in the room with me were giving me strange looks. So if you love a good laugh, this is definitely a must read. There are some truly amazing one liners in this book and the plots and plans these two come up with are good fun. I absolutely love Max! He just loves women. He doesn’t care what they look like as long as they have a great personality. I love the underdog, so I love a man who looks for the underdog and that’s Max. Breezy, well lets just say I can understand why she doesn’t want to bring her boyfriends home, but to be honest, most of them sound like tools. She is clueless to what’s right in front of her face and at some points you almost don’t even like her because of it. Their friends are quite fun too. Talk about personalities.
I highly recommend this book! Get it now, you won’t regret it!
