Selected as a Summer Beach Read Pick by Harper's Bazaar, Associated Press, Purewow, and Refinery29

"The unlikely romance between a feminist poet and the Hollywood heartthrob who options her book is at the center of Kay's entertainingly dyspeptic Monsters." --Vogue

"In the tradition of Lolly Winston's Good Grief . . . this fast-paced novel will have readers immersed in the heady feeling of an alcohol-fueled affair with one of the sexiest men alive." --Library Journal (starred review)

"Witty and so nimbly-worded, Monsters had me at hello. From the near-madcap improbability of the novel's premise, to the punchy repartee and ping-pong banter between Stacey and Tommy, it's impossible to resist the book's charms. ." --Jill Alexander Essbaum, author of Hausfrau

"A perfectly imperfect love story . . . Kay has created a heartfelt, sometimes dark but ultimately romantic story about what happens when two broken people come together." - BookPage

"A smart, satirical feminist novel, but as the subtitle suggests, it's also a romance." --ShelfAwareness

"I love to see truth in writing when it comes to love and relationships . . . [Monsters is] an electric, fast-moving novel." - B&N Reads

"An addictive read: a page-turner that is at once dark and uplifting, shocking and hopeful. Kay's book takes a sharp spin on the notion of fairy tale romance." --Janelle Brown, author of All We Ever Wanted Was Everything

"At times somber, at times heartwarming, the story of this improbable romance is an addictive page-turner, ripe with seduction and charm, that drops insights into this messy, crazy, wonderful thing called love.." --Washington Independent Review of Books

"This one will make you laugh and cry . . . Monsters is fast-paced and completely addictive." --Purewow

"The novel's wry insights into messy relationships put me in mind of The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. and Emma Straub's The Vacationers." --Timothy Schaffert, author of The Swan Gondola

"This edgy and entertaining novel would make a great beach read." --Booklist

"Magical." --Lucy Sykes, author of The Knockoff

"When monsters fall in love, it is impossible not to watch, impossible to put the book down." --Rebecca Rotert, author of Last Night at the Blue Angel

"A deeply felt and modern day spin on the fairy tale notion of happily-ever-after. . . Smart, fun, sexy writing." --Mark Haskell Smith, author of Raw: A Love Story

"Monsters is smart, witty, hilarious, raunchy, irresistible, and full of crackling dialogue." --Catherine Texier, author of Victorine

"Reads like a seduction. I couldn't stop. . . Monsters they may be, but vulnerable monsters with hearts full of yearning." --Amy Hassinger, author of The Priest's Madonna
