    11. 2.5 stars I wasn t a huge fan of this novel when I first started it, due to the girl on girl hate and slut shaming, and upon finishing it, I m still thinking of bumping this rating down Essentially, the plot revolves around Jill and Max, childhood best friends, becoming a bit after they kiss while Max has a girlfriend, Becky Drama ensues, and some stuff happens, basically This novel made me mad in a few ways Max talks about how he broke up with Becky She s humiliated she made that very clear, r [...]

    16. THE book for readers who adore stories about broken boys that aren t too far gone and the girls that love them but know when to say when There s nothing I love me like a brooding broken boy I consider myself somewhat of a brooding broken boy connoisseur if you will, and so when I say Max Holden won me over in chapter 1, I don t make that statement lightly In truth, all of Upperman s characters won me over quickly, perhaps because I found them so authentic and charming from the get go Upperman wr [...]

    17. ARC from Netgalley and Macmillan Children s Publishing Group for a fair reviewTHE FEELINGS GUYS Kissing Max Holden was not your average boy next door trope It is much real, dramatic and heartbreaking Jillian kisses Max, unfortunately, he s already got a girlfriend Then what happens Well, a LOT There s kissing, crying, lying, betrayal, OH MAN, life freaking happens, and my heart hurts so hard from this book.The Romance Really, boy next door is usually fool proof for me I will always read and pro [...]

    18. Kissing Max Holden really took me by surprise, I went into the book expecting a light, cute, fluffy read, but I appreciated the depth and serious issues that Upperman dealt with Jill and Max have been friends forever, although they ve sort of drifted apart at school, they d never imagined something than their friendship until one night, they end up kissing It comes completely out of the blue, as Max has a girlfriend and with everything being chaotic for Max at home, maybe it was just the comfor [...]

    20. I simply loved this boy next door romance Kissing Max Holden was one of my most anticipated reads for the second half of 2017, needless to say, I was ecstatic when Kiersten brought this one back from BEA It was a wonderful boy next door romance, that hit all the sweet spots for me.These two had such a deep bond, which was cultivated through a decade of friendship I always love when the MCs share a past, and Jillian and Max had such a wonderful and storied history I really enjoyed those peeks Upp [...]

    22. I read this one when it was up on the Swoon Reads website and I can t wait for 2017 so I can read it all over again The combination of romance and family drama reminded me of Sarah Ockler s books, so you ll want to keep an eye out for this one, especially if you re a contemporary fan.

    23.

    26. Because baking was on my brain the entire time I read this book, I m going to sum it up in one word delicious Katy Upperman weaves in brilliant breaths of air into her prose that swept me up into Jilly and Max s world I stayed up way past my bed time telling myself you can read just one chapter for many chapters Yes, there are a lot of sizzling smooches, it s called Kissing Max Holden for a reason, but there is a ton of heart at its core Kissing Max Holden is about family and the different kind [...]
