A hilarious debut novel about a perfectly imperfect love story.
Even the smartest people can be stupid at love.
When Stacey Lane writes a feminist take on Frankenstein, she never imagines it will catch the eye of unbelievably sexy Hollywood star Tommy DeMarco. Tommy’s passion for her book—and for her, a recently widowed poet, mom, and certified mess—threatens to turn her life upside down, or maybe right-side up. From their first poolside meeting the two are set on a collision course as they go about making the book into a movie, making each other crazy, and making love, if only in secret. Fueled by desire, love, grief, expertly poured cocktails, and crackling dialogue, Monsters: A Love Story is a witty portrait of a relationship gone off the rails and two people who are made for each other—even if they’re not so sure they see it that way.

I loved it!!
This book was absolutely brilliant! The angst, the sexual tension, and pure raw emotion that this story delivers guarantees that you will not be able to put this book down. An absolute page turner. These characters will frustrate the crap out of you, but while they do that, you will find yourself falling deeply in love with them too. An absolute must read, and worth every stolen second. This story burns slowly and it fades to black, but I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. The ending is satisfying, but it will definitely leave you begging for more! Read this freaking book already!!
