Review: Maybe This Time by Annabelle Jacobs

Moving into a new home starts with a bang when Ryan Blackwell celebrates turning thirty. Being hungover means he’s bleary-eyed and clumsy the next day, but even in that state, he can appreciate how sexy and fit his neighbour is.

Matt Thomas isn’t looking for anything long-term—one and done is usually his life rule. Why settle down early, like his sister, when casual relationships are so easy? With Ryan living in the same building, chance encounters are inevitable. When one night together becomes two, a friends-with-benefits deal seems a natural progression.

There’s only one problem: sex with no strings relies on matching expectations, so Ryan can’t help worrying. His huge heart always wants more, but Matt’s been clear about his limits. As passion leads to caring, they’ll have to make some tough decisions—maybe this time, breaking some rules will be worth it if that means they’ll get to share a future.

This book was CUTE! It's a quick, easy read that absolutely hits the spot as far as I'm concerned. 

Neighbour meets neighbour and they have a one night stand. Then another one night stand. Then friends with benefits... I loved watching Ryan and Matt slowly slip into each other's lives and how their mutual, sexual, attraction becomes more. 

Despite this book being written around the sexual attraction these guys have for each other, it really felt like a book about friendship, and damn do I like that! It's in the quiet moments, the running and drinking and helping that the story forms and the characters stole into my heart.

As with all good easy-reads, there is a great collection of friends and family making up the secondary characters, a good dose of wit, a better dose of friendship and some niiiice sex. And that's nice spelt YUM. Oh and a cat, because what's a meet-cute without a cat or dog. Nothing, that's what!

This book is bound to leave a smile on anyone's face, well written and thoroughly enjoyable.

A copy of this book was given in exchange for an honest review.
