KISSING MAX HOLDEN BY KATY UPPERMAN REVIEW | ALISON

Teenage angst at its finest

Jillian and Max went from best friends to almost nothing. Life for them was heading in different paths, not to mention Max’s not so nice girlfriend Becky in the picture. It seems as though Jillian and Max have been drifting apart, until a kiss changes it all.

I felt as if poor Jillian just could not catch a break, with her family life slowly falling apart and her hot and cold relationship with Max. Things just seem so bleak for her.

I was rooting for her and Max from the get go and at times I was getting frustrated with the both of them. One minute it was him I wanted to shake some sense into and the next minute it was Jillian I wanted to shake.

All in all I felt this was a cute teenage love story, about best friends becoming more.

Synopsis:
Kissing Max Holden was a terrible idea…

After his father has a life-altering stroke, Max Holden isn’t himself. As his long-time friend, Jillian Eldridge only wants to help him, but she doesn’t know how. When Max climbs through her window one night, Jill knows that she shouldn’t let him kiss her. But she can’t resist, and when they’re caught in the act by her dad, Jill swears it’ll never happen again. Because kissing Max Holden is a terrible idea.

With a new baby sibling on the way, her parents fighting all the time, and her dream of culinary school up in the air, Jill starts spending more and more time with Max. And even though her father disapproves and Max still has a girlfriend, not kissing Max is easier said than done. Will Jill follow her heart and allow their friendship to blossom into something more, or will she listen to her head and stop kissing Max Holden once and for all?
