    LIVE 3 StarsRachel and Oliver meet the day before classes start her freshman year of college Rachel has a ten year plan but decides to have one last night of fun before that plan begins After their night of talking and the epic first kiss the next day Rachel decides she can’t let Oliver go They date most of their freshman year but end up breaking up when her grades begin to spiral out of control Rachel knows that Oliver isn’t the problem that it is really her but decides to end the relationship since she can’t make good decisions around him I didn’t like this reason and felt it was a bit of a copout The story is told with Rachel looking back every few chapters to their relationship I would have liked to have seen of them together back in college because I loved their sweet relationship “When you’re just wake up too That might be my favorite moment It’s what I picture when you’re not right here” “Every night I’m not with you I can still see you waking up beside me” Now six years later they meet again and he is dating her best friend Now you are wondering why her best friend would date her former boyfriendWell Rachel hid her relationship from everyone in college so her friend is completely innocent and really only guilt of being pretty obnoxiousOkay back on track so they meet back up and that is where most of the story takes place the two of them apartdating other people who all happen to be friends I think this story had the perfect ingredients but just fell a little short My issue with the story was wasted time after finally meeting again I would have enjoyed it had the book explored time as a couple I know you have to have dramaangst to have a story but I would have preferred to actually have some of that time with the couple I did enjoy this but just felt it could have been better I also would have liked a little steam I am not a fan of fade to black scenes I do recommend if you are looking for a uick read with minimal drama ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review

    I absolutely adored London's modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice when she wrote Definitely Maybe In Love so there was no way I was going to pass up the chance to not only get another dose of her great writing but also to get another modern twist of my second most favorite Austen's tale Persuasion I so was not wrong to pick this up I loved it from the very beginning and how could I not love Spring and Henry's cameo YayOliver and Rachel were perfect everything I would picture in a very modern Fredrick and Anne love that those were their middle names In fact I am going to go so far as to say that I liked this even than the PP retelling It is by far my favorite Persuasion retelling to date I loved everything about it You could see the insecurities the heart break the longing the love the resentment the jealousy So many emotions so beautifully thought out and displayed I completely devoured this in one sitting I just couldn't get enough And even though I knew how it would end I was still biting my nails in anxiety hoping like heck it was a happy one Wonderfully done

    Persuasion never seems to get the amount of love PP does and that's a shame because it's an amazing story This modern retelling of sorts was absolute perfection Rachel was a good MC Yeah she's got some issues but who doesn't Love love love Oliver surprise surprise He's deliciously swoony and so adorable Sarah was also an excellent character She really came across as vibrant I didn't care much for Meghan but she was a perfect representation for Louisa The only bad thing I have to say about this is that I'm super disappointed that we didn't get The Letter It's such a pivotal point to the story Other than that I enjoyed every single word and will definitely be looking for of Ophelia's future words Huge thanks to Entangled Publishing and NetGalley for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review

    Rachel and Oliver had a secret relationship freshman year of college Oliver didn't fit into her 10 year plan so she ends things between them Fast forward 6 years when she moves back to San Francisco and gets to meet her best friends new boyfriend This was a really sweet second chance romance I loved Oliver he was such a sweetheart I really liked the dynamics with all the friends There were a few small things that I didn't like about this book but I can't leave that in the review because it is a spoiler but overall I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a sweet romantic storyARC provided in exchange for an honest review

    My thoughts After falling in love with London's Pride and Prejudice adaptation Definitely Maybe in Love the moment that I heard she has another Austen adaptation coming out I signed up I'm hesitant to say that I enjoyed this than Definitely Maybe because I loved it so much but it's close This is the second in the series but it can definitely be read as a standalone novelMaybe it's because I'm not as familiar with Jane Austen's Persuasion the Austen book that Someday Maybe is based on as I am with Pride and  Prejudice but I was kept guessing with Someday Maybe I liked that I wasn't really sure where the story would end up with most romances you pretty much know how it's going to end with a happily ever after and I liked thatI liked that Someday Maybe felt like a grown up than  Definitely Maybe but that's probably because Rachel the main character in  Someday Maybe was older and already a career woman whereas Spring from Definitely Maybe was still in grad school  I liked that this allowed for emotionally mature relationships I liked seeing the dynamics between Rachel and her friends as well as Rachel and Oliver  It was also nice to see the relationship between Rachel and her brother as well as Oliver and his sister it gave dimension to the characters to see how they reacted with their family  There were only 2 things I didn't really love about Someday Maybe   See at A Full Bookshelf

    4 StarsReview by Nicole LorenzoRachel Daughtry has had a fear of the unknown since she was a young girl This is why she makes her ten year plan that she refuses to stray from Her future is too important to get distracted by boys and parties in college But When Oliver Wentworth walks into her life all bets are off Rachel finds herself falling hard and fast for Oliver and his easy going charming ways For eight months they spend every possible minute together keeping their relationship uiet as per Rachel’s reuest But then her own drastically slipping grades and Oliver’s lack of direction for the future overwhelms Rachel She decides to end things with Oliver without so much as giving him a genuine answer as to why “Was I really willing to trade the future I’d been planning for years to be with the boy I loved right now?”Six years later Rachel is back in San Francisco She is happy to be starting a new job and reconnecting with her friends She gets a reality check when her new job appears to be harder than expected But that’s just the beginning of her problems When her best friend Meghan starts yapping about a new guy she is head over heels for Rachel is generally happy for her That is until she runs into them and comes face to face with Oliver Meghan is dating Oliver Her Oliver And she has no idea that Rachel even knows him never the less dated him for 8 months Meghan knows him by a different name and Rachel is afraid she will hurt her friend by revealing their past“For a moment it felt like time froze and whizzed us back six years I was standing before the Oliver I knew the one I was in love with”Facing him again brings back memories and regrets Rachel isn’t ready to deal with She never got over Oliver and now her best friend is mooning all over him What makes things worse is every time they catch each other’s gaze she holds out hope that maybe he feels the same way But then reality sits in that Oliver is over her and dating Meghan Not telling her best friend about their history makes things painfully awkward when she wants her to spend time with both of them They go on a 6 day trip with some of Oliver’s friends It’s there she meets someone that makes her think that she could get over her first love Although there is a decent chance that Rachel could have a relationship with a decent guy she is still conflicted over her feelings for OliverRachel starts to get the notion that maybe Oliver doesn’t hate her after all Actually the they spend time together the she catches his lingering glances and heated stares“I haven’t forgotten”“Neither have I”Old habits die hard Rachel is still worried about her future and Oliver’s lack of concern for stability It makes her nervous so she distances herself from him trying to put the past behind her once and for all But chance meetings and unresolved feelings make it difficult Oliver is still angry over the way she ended their relationship “Did you assume I didn’t remember? That I don’t think about that day every time I look at you?”Rachel lost Oliver due to her fears for the future But she is miserable at her job and without Oliver When something happens to put things in perspective she knows she needs to get past her fears to live in the now and get a second chance at love “You were my first love Oliver my first everything”Someday Maybe is a modern day take on Persuasion by Jane Austen A second chance love story about Rachel who let her fears of uncertainty push her true love away I will say off the bat that I completely despised Meghan This made it difficult to see where Rachel was coming from as far as protecting her feelings and I was completely puzzled as to why Oliver would have spent one minute with her in the first place Also there was no real explanation as to what actually transpired between Meghan and Oliver I feel that was just a tad bit unresolved That being said I genuinely enjoyed the story The rest of the secondary characters were really likeable and relatable The book was told in both real time and Flashbacks from Rachel and Oliver’s past The flashbacks are where you will really swoon over Oliver He’s charming and completely in love with Rachel but she is just too scared to let go of the control she feels she needs to hold on to She loved him whole heartedly but still ended their relationship and at the time she thought she was doing the right thing I think it’s relatable A lot of young people don’t expect to meet their soul mate as a freshman in college I really enjoyed this novel and it’s the first book I have read by Ophelia London I read Someday Maybe as a standalone even though it is the second book in the Definitely Maybe series The first book Definitely Maybe in Love is based on Austen’s Pride and Prejudice which is my favorite book of all time I will definitely be reading that next “Oliver loved me like real love like when no one is looking and when you have nothing to gain but you give and you love and you sacrifice and cherish”

    This reunited lovers romance is the story of Rachel and Oliver Secretly involved in college Oliver doesn't fit into Rachel's 10 year plan and when she breaks things off with him it seems like the right thing to do to get things back on track Only she hasn't gotten over him and when she returns to her home town Oliver is there now dating her best friend who never knew of their relationship before Suddenly Rachel has to choose between letting Oliver go completely or admitting that she's never gotten over himI confess that once I started this story I could not put it down I loved the way the present day was combined at the beginning with flashbacks of the past showing the evolution of Oliver and Rachel's romance in college and how it all fell apart and their reemergence into the same social circles now with no one the wiser about their secret relationship They obviously still have feelings for each other though Oliver is hurt and disillusioned that Rachel never really explained why she kept him a secret and the reason that she broke things off with him I liked both characters Rachel with her plans never uite working out right and Oliver seemingly without plans when really he is a thoughtful and considerate person It's Rachel who must change the most in this story realizing that Oliver isn't the person she thought he was There is still an intense sexual attraction between them that they can't keep hidden and it's obvious to those around them Denying it exists doesn't seem to help and the buildup to them confessing their real feelings for each other is slow and satisfying Overall I found this to be a well written and entertaining story combining sexual tension humor real and flawed characters and an engaging second chance at love story 5 stars Note a copy of this story was provided by the publisher for review

    Someday Maybe was a super special kind of second chance love story I really liked it It was the kind of romance that warms the heart and pulls at those very tender heart strings Oliver and Rachel were a dream couple to read about From the start they had a wonderful chemistry that showed the zing factor that true loves tend to have The way they met their first kiss the reunion the Sarah connection the charity race the Chinese restaurant scene the apartment scenes with the art and the guitar the hospital scene and the storm meeting were definitely some of my favorites I could just sigh with the beauty of each one of those momentsThe whole Oliver and Rachel dating the best friends angle was somewhat awkward to me It wasn't okay or cool in my opinion It just seemed peculiar and out of place Perhaps because it happened three times Still I loved the interesting group of friends Funniest inclusion Bruce the Moran Hahahahahahaha Best AHA the Jane Austen connectionWeirdest the dream play still it workedThis book was so good that the minute I started reading it I realized that I would have to immediately finish just it to see the outcome I was glued to the pages Don't even ask me how long it took to finish it because you would not believe me if I told you Rating 45Recommend YesDigital copy vs Hard copy DigitalChemistry APace F steady consistentHEA Yes yeah

    This is a really great story with tons of twists and turns The pace of the story was a bit slow but the writing was great and the characters were fantastic I loved Oliver from the start Rachel took a while to grow on me with her insecurities and expectations The secondary characters where hilarious and the humor made the book for me This is one I highly recommend
