Audiobook Review: Maybe This Time by Chantal Fernando. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Maybe This Time by Chantal Fernando

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Moving in with my half-brother Xander, I had no idea what to expect. 


But nothing could have prepared me for this. 


My brother’s friends are wild, protective, secretive, always around. 


And drop dead gorgeous. 


Out of all of them, there’s something about Reid Knox. 


Brooding, temperamental, guarded… 


And I want him more than anything I have ever wanted in my life. 

Maybe This Time

A whole new world!

The heroine: Summer – she grew up with a Mom that hated her Dad for cheating on her. After her Mom dies, she moves in with her half brother who lives near their father. Summer loves her brother and her Dad though she has issues with the fact that her Dad wasn’t there when she was growing up.

The Hero(es): Reid – he has an identical twin Ryan and they are in the group of guys that hang out with Summer’s half brother Xander. They all really like her Dad as well. They also have secrets which they don’t think Summer can handle.

The story: Reid and Summer are attracted to each other at their first meeting. Though it seems to me that it all happened way too fast. It is one thing to be very attracted to each other from the start, but it seemed like just because of the attraction, they were treating each other like they had some sort of claim on each other right away. It was just a bit weird to me.

I liked Summer’s relationships with her brother and father, but the secrets were really odd. They kept hinting that Summer might not be safe, but they didn’t say why. I know her Dad, brother and all the guys have motorcycles but were they an MC? I wasn’t sure.

Reid is involved in something and with people that he was keeping from Summer, but it is weird when she doesn’t immediately demand answers. Everything was just a bit too disjointed to me. It seemed there was a lot of back story about Summer and her mother but not enough detail on things that actually are going on.

Though that isn’t to say the book was bad. The story was good and I liked all the guys and how Summer was with them. The narration was good, but it was all told from Summer’s POV. Ido like dual POV books better with both a female and male narrator.

    • I am actually surprised at how many books are single POV and frankly I wish they would just have a man reading the man’s parts even if the book is in the POV of the heroine.

      Even in dual POV, they have the man read everything in the male POV and the woman read everything in the female POV. So we still have the man reading the woman’s quotes and vice versa depending on whose POV that chapter is in. I would like it to just have the man read the man’s sentences and woman read the woman’s no matter the POV.
