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.
Maybe This Time by Annabelle Jacobs is a super sweet romance. No angst just love. There’s a small amount of romantic suspense but this is a light read that will leave you with a lot of good feelings and a smile.
Matt doesn’t want romance. He is thirty-eight and happy with the uncommitted life. He wants hot bodies in his bed and no strings attached.
Ryan just moves into his building and the attraction is instant. Which you wouldn’t know if it wasn’t duel POV. What starts as a minor irritation turns into a friends with benefits situation.
I have to say that Matt and Ryan’s friends and family are relentless. Oh wow I’m surprised these guys didn’t scream at them to hush! At times to the point they were nagging. But Matt and Ryan took it all well and kept their composure.
This story builds pleasantly and when you think there is conflict it’s wiped away fast. They were very adult about it. Ryan is thirty, eight years younger, and aside from his need to drink quite often you couldn’t really tell. Very mature and they actually communicate! What a concept.
All in all I liked this book and the warm and fuzzies it left me with.
