Maybe This Time by Chantal Fernando Book Review

Maybe This Time  - Chantal Fernando

Very good cover.
It immediately caught my eye, it is simple, not sloppy, even cool. And what kind of chick doen's go for a picture of a half naked guy on the cover?

Plot was highly predictable.
Summer loses her mother and is forced to move in with his half-brother whom she hasn't seen all her life but immediately loves. The said brother has very hot friends and innocent(somewhat) Summer falls for the scarred, closed-off, badboy Reid. Reid feels an instant attraction for Summer but refuses to act on it but will fold later on. Reid has issues and dark secrets but eventually the two will hook up.

Conflict has potential but needs more work.
Several conflicts are shown in the novel and it might have been a hell of drama if the author could have just focused on them. Such a waste though and I just let my imagination run and even shed a few tears for heart was breaking for Summer with her circumstances. I feel the author wanting to speed things up and getting a happy ever after for the two but a little more drama would have been made their happy ending much more sweeter.

Alpha males = HOT.
Need I say more?

Overall, the book does not just do it form me. It would have been great but that's it. Would have. Summer has been oput in a very high pedestal and it is almost unrealistic. Pros are the oozing testosterone constantly in every page of the book.
