She wants him to squeeze her melons . . .
He wants her to hold his wood . . .
Max is the sole reason Breezy can’t keep a boyfriend. Every boyfriend she has ever had breaks up with her the moment they meet him. It’s not because of his eight-pack, or his panty shredding smile. No, the reason Breezy remains single is because Max is her best friend and roommate.
When Breezy’s new boyfriend dumps her after meeting Max for the first time, Breezy is determined to cure her boyfriend woes by challenging Max to a bet: she can’t click her mouse, he can’t wrestle his snake, and neither one can say the word sex or they lose.
It was a simple game of abstinence, until Max decides to tempt Breezy into a hilarious game of innuendos. Now, the only thing harder than Max’s “wood”, is figuring out just where their friendship lies after all bets are off.
One thing’s for certain . . .
All’s fair in sex, love, and innuendos.
I’ll tell you something about this book: it sure hell is funny!
When I started Innuendos I was a bit worried about how the Erotic Romantic Comedy thing would work, but I shouldn’t have been. While a lot of things are hinted upon, and innuendos are thrown out, and some sex does occur, it isn’t, by any means, one of the most explicit books I’ve read.
The writing was most of all fun, but the dialogs made me cringe at times and they (sometimes) felt a bit unnatural. On the other hand, I loved the internal dialogs, so there was a perfect balance. However, given that I read this fairly quickly, I noticed a few words that escaped through the cracks and shouldn’t have been there. During the bet, neither Breezy or Max can say the word sex, or anything directly related to it, however, they both do, without the other calling them up on it.
I really liked Max, I loved that he had no problems admitting how he felt about Breezy and how patient he was with her, even if he did this while sleeping around… a lot. Still, even with that, he appreciated women and was never disrespectful. Breezy, on the other hand, was a bit more complicated to connect with, because she was just so blind to what was going on in her life and with her feelings. The side characters were great, Maggie was totally hilarious. Max’s parents… OMG!
I felt that the first third of the book was a bit slow. While I understood the importance of establishing Travis’ importance in Breezy’s life, and showing the type of life that Max was leading, I wish that there would have been a bigger focus on Max and Breezy’s relationship from the start. When the focus shifts – a.k.a., when Travis finally meets Max – the book advances rather quickly and it’s increasingly funnier, because Max and Breezy’s verbal foreplay is hilarious. How could that girl think that that kind of flirting was normal thought, is beyond me!
All the innuendos were beyond hilarious, I think one of my favorite scenes was the changing room scene at Victoria Secrets, eheh.
I was a bit disappointed at Breezy when the bet finally ends, I expected her to be scared, but I didn’t quite predict what she would do, and I didn’t like it… it seriously broke my heart. Max deserved better.
There are a LOT of clichés in this book, like in all romantic comedies, but it’s totally worth the read. The situations they get themselves into are beyond funny, and Breezy and Max are a couple you can’t help but root for. Well done!

This is one of that cases I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. That cover is bad XD
the cover is beyond terrible! It’s probably the worst cover I’ve ever seen. But the book is funny as hell 😀
It’s a good thing that you liked it. I’m pretty sure I would never pick that book up because of that cover XD
eheh, I wouldn’t either. It was a review request from the author. She seemed nice and I read the blurb a couple of ratings before agreeing to review it.
and the blurb isn’t espetacular either…
The worst that could have happened was the book not being funny at all but it’s good that you liked it 🙂
the story in itself is cool – I mean, best friends in love, who doesn’t like that, right?
Yep. Normally best friends in love is the cutest thing ever 😀
it was cute in that sense. the guy was beyond lovely with her. I mean, she would hold her hair up when she got sick…
I am not sure how I feel about that cover. It looks ridiculous! hahaha but at least it portrays the story correctly if it’s as funny as you say!
The cover is, without a doubt, the worst part of the book. It is in serious need of a re-do. And the melons… let’s just say that that scene in the book is so ridiculous that it’s funny, lol
Hahaha I imagine it really laugh-worty, but YES! Definite candidate for a re-do!
it’s also a book that would probably work super well as a movie. the situations were funny, and the relationship between the main couple was great. the guy is heads over heels in love with her, he has been for 10 years, and she doesn’t have a clue.
I like those kind of stories. I am sure it would make a great RomCom!
😉 it would. it would probably work better as a movie actually
Hahaha we should just send it to some studios then hahaha
…was that cover made with Microsoft Word (not even Paint)? What is even…
right? the cover is awful! When I got the review request I stared at the cover for a long time before I could finally move past it…
