Letting go is hard. Admitting you need each other is harder.

Emily Portman loves her job. A writer for Breakout! Magazine, she shadows and showcases up-and-coming bands. 

When her next assignment takes her to Austin, Texas, she can’t wait to add the city to her map of places she’s visited. Places she’s left without looking back. Her plan is to keep moving on, and the last thing she needs is a man holding her back. 

She’s not going down that road again. 

Tyler Macy is stuck in a rut. Despite his exceptional talent as a musician, he has chosen to take a backseat with his music and let others grab the limelight. 

Wounded and mistrustful, he doesn't appreciate his friends’ efforts to bring him back to center stage. 

Emily comes onto the scene and sees his full potential, but he fights to stay in the shadows, shutting her out before she can add to the scars another woman gave him. 

For Tyler to find his music again, he needs to accept the help that Emily and their friends offer. 

When he discovers that his muse lies underneath Emily’s skin, it is still not enough to keep her from walking away. 

Neither will admit what they really want until it is too late. 

Emily is once again thrown in Tyler’s path when she is assigned to join them on tour. 

Despite the pain in his past, Tyler sees that she is worth it, even if she’s stolen both his heart and peace of mind. 

In order for them to be together, they both must discover whether the music and their passion are enough to overcome the obstacles that separate them. 

Maybe finding love is worth the risk.

My 4 1/2 Star Oh my heart, this is a story you will love!

I literally danced through this story! Such a likable story, not over the top on the drama, not dragging you under with the angst. Smart lead characters, super secondary characters, rounded out with a really nice well balanced story line that just keeps you interested. 

Oh yeah, the book boyfriend, Gotta have the book boyfriend and Tyler aka Mace Face steps in to that role perfectly!

Maybe is the epitome of contemporary romance. I love a true contemporary romance! 

You don't need multi story lines, crazy characters, roller coasters, fluff, none of that. Just a clean story, a story that tells you a story that when you finish it, the words that pop in to your brain are...that was a good story.

And that's what Maybe is. A story that tells you a story, entertaining, invested in the characters, some swoony parts with a touch of smexiness.

I liked Emily a lot. A girl who knows what she wants regardless of the path she set up for herself, no hemming and hawing what she should do. She goes with her heart.

Tyler, my new book boyfriend, he's been hurt and betrayed in the path but love and trust bring him out of his shell, and he blossoms.

Emily and Tyler together, you can't help but smile at them and with them.

I really enjoyed this story. The only thing holding me back from going all the way with a full 5 star rating was I felt the ending was a bit short, there was an epilogue, but the ending wrapped up a bit to quick for me. But that's ok, Maybe is still a story you will want to read because it will make you smile and feel good.

And who doesn't love that?
