Editorial Reviews


"The Secret was non stop entertainment, witty and plenty of mischief with great characters that you will quickly fall in love with. If you are looking for a wonderfully entertaining Rom Com then look no further. Max Monroe in my opinion are the Queens of the genre."
— Erin Lewis, BookBub Reviewer ★★★★★
"This is the Max Monroe I love! ...
It's everything you expect in a Max Monroe book, but even better."
— Cocobrielle, BookBub Reviewer ★★★★★
These Winslow men are going to make you laugh til you cry and swoon til you can barely stand. Max Monroe are masters in their craft, they know when it's time to laugh, time to love and time to blush.
I'm always excited when I find out there is a new book out. I run, I drop whatever I'm reading and dive in, because they always entertain me with all the emotion and laughter I could ever hope for!!"
— sandizzlereads, BookBub Reviewer ★★★★★
"The Secret is Ty Winslow's story, a charming, English professor. Its hilarious but also has some very sizzling undeniable chemistry and a forbidden element too.
Dear me, his family, the Winslows, are this very tightknit group of people and the banter is off the charts witty.
I couldn't put this book down. 
I loved this book so hard, such a great entertaining steamy rom com!"
— Marina Skinner, BookBub Reviewer ★★★★★
"Oh boy! These Winslow brothers just keeping getting hotter and hotter! And Ty's book definitely did not disappoint. 
Another fabulous Max Monroe romcom,
not to be missed!"
— Heather Nobbs, BookBub Reviewer ★★★★★
"Hot for teacher?! Yes, I am! Especially if his name is Ty Winslow! The Secret by Max Monroe was a wild, hot, steamy good time that will leave you with all the delicious good feels.
These ladies are knocking it out of the park with their Winslow brothers series with each brother's story getting better and better (and hotter)!" 
— Jodi, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
"Max Monroe knows how to get my attention and keep it. They always make me laugh, swoon, cry and scream at their characters. This book is no different...This book is definitely worth the read and I know you'll fall in love with the characters as much as I did."
— Zetti, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
"Yeah, you're all going to want this book on pre-order now!!
If it's MaxMonroe, it's going to have all these qualities in a romcom I need:
Sexy hero...check
Hilarious family dynamics... check
Heroine you can't help but love.. check!
I will forever love the Winslow family for bringing me hours of entertainment! Just their texts alone have me laughing so hard I can't eat or drink anything while reading these books!
Thank you again Max Monroe for bringing another hilarious book boyfriends to life!!
Bring on Remy because I've been waiting on this man and I can't wait!! I have a feeling he's going to be my favorite of the brothers!! Shhhhh.. don't tell the other guys that though!"
— Laurie Anne, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
Hot! Hot! Hot!
The Secret has lit my Kindle app on fire! Ty and Rachel's story is not one that you'll want to miss. And they really remind me of my favorite couple EVAH: Thatcher Kelly and Cassie Phillips. Ty and Rachel are fun and flirty and fluffing crazy. Everything that I want in a romance novel and more!"
— Kristina, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
Hands down, my new favorite couple of 2022. Max Monroe definitely knows what the readers want and it's more of the Winslows! Steamy spring five star read!"
— Jennifer, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
OMG I love this series - Ty really gave Flynn a run for his money. I knew he would be a great lead but boy oh boy I was not expecting him to have depth to his easy-going charm that we have seen in the previous books."
 — Tanja OMGReads, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
"Max and Monroe don't lie when they recommend not to do the following. Reading in public, work, by a light sleeper etc. Their words not mine. I highly suggest you take the recommendations. The Secret had me laughing out loud, snorting at little moments or text between the brothers. Or the banner between Rachel and Ty. This book everyone needs. Some spicy times, sigh worthy moments and hea. I can't wait to see what's next."
 —June, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
"Max Monroe went a whole new level on the sexy in this book! Ty is the whole package. He's sexy, intelligent, funny and alpha. Rachel is beautiful and very smart. I loved the biplay between the main characters. There are some serious laugh out loud scenes in this book.
Max Monroe are masters at writing rom com's. I can't wait for Remy's book."
— Barbara Lack, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
"I absolutely love Ty and Rachel. There is a ton of chemistry between the two of them. I loved the little challenges between them. They were fun and entertaining. Plus, the steam in this book is fantastic.
With each book in this series I fall more and more for the Winslow family. I absolutely love the relationship they have with each other. 
If you're looking for a forbidden ish, professor/TA, rom com this is one to check out."
—Amy (Book Addict Reviews), BookBub Reviewer ★★★★★
"OMG I cried, like bawled like a baby during this book and laughed so hard its dangerous. Max Monroe has done it again with The Secret, Ty and Rachels story.
... Soo good.
Really if you havent read this one dont walk, run to get it."
— traciemrogers, BookBub Reviewer ★★★★★
Still asking myself: How are none of Max Monroe's books streaming their behinds off on Netflix yet?? The world is a weird and sad place!!
THE SECRET was another super funny and adorable and über sexxy Max Monroe Rom-Com! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Ty - he'll be sold out in no time!"
— Bianca (BJ's Book Blog), BookBub Reviewer ★★★★★
I wish I could read it all over again for the first time and I don't re-read books.
This book was HAWT and funny and sexy and everything I would ever want in a Max Monroe story. I love their use of characters we've met in their own stories and secondary characters who will be getting their turn in the spotlight soon (Hello Remy!). I fell in love with Ty and Rachel, and you will, too!"
— Jami Birnbaum, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
"Ty and Rachel were a 5 alarm house fire and it rocked!"
— AnnMarie, Alphas Do It Better Book Blog ★★★★★
"I devoured this book once I started it, I did not want to put it down immediately after reading the prologue.
Ty Winslow is easily my favorite out of Winnie's Brothers and definitely one of my top 5 heros from Max Monroe's books."
— Payton Box, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
"Prepare to laugh so much it will count for your cardio for the day. And turn the AC down and the fan on because it's going to get
H-O-T in here. Don't worry. These crafty storytellers didn't forget the feels, and your romantic heart will be happy sighing all over itself. Laugh-out-loud hilarious, steamy, and heartfelt, this phenomenal, fun reading escape is sure to please!"
— Book Addict, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
"Don't tell Thatch, but... *whispers*
Ty is unquestionably my new favorite book boyfriend from this author duo. The Secret had everything I'd come to love about their books: laughs galore, hot AF steam, feels that had tears streaming down my face, mostly from laughing, a little age gap with a side of forbidden, and I was 69 shades of addicted."
— Melissa, Book Boyfriend and Husband Make Three ★★★★★
Why am I just now getting on the Max Monroe train?? I seriously must have been hiding under a rock or something...I am going back a reading the first two books of the series just so I can get more of the family."
— Jennifer DeJong, Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
