Maybe Not by Colleen Hoover--my review

   I wanted to follow up Maybe Someday with the story of Maybe Not, but I didn't necessarily read these one after the other.     This is a shorter story, (130 pgs) telling of Ridge and Sydney's roomies, Warren and Bridgette and how they related to each other.


Colleen Hoover, the New York Times bestselling author of Maybe Someday brilliantly brings to life the story of the wonderfully hilarious and charismatic Warren in a new novella, Maybe Not.

When Warren has the opportunity to live with a female roommate, he instantly agrees. It could be an exciting change.

Or maybe not.

Especially when that roommate is the cold and seemingly calculating Bridgette. Tensions run high and tempers flare as the two can hardly stand to be in the same room together. But Warren has a theory about Bridgette: anyone who can hate with that much passion should also have the capability to love with that much passion. And he wants to be the one to test this theory.

Will Bridgette find it in herself to warm her heart to Warren and finally learn to love?


Maybe not.


Maybe Not was a follow up novella of 130 pages.   Warren had been best buddies with Ridge since they were teens and he had both a warped humor and perspective which made him the most lovable character of the foursome.
Maybe Not was comical and sad and sexually explicit.   For all of the quirkiness of the two main characters, Warren and Bridgette, his seeming understanding of her emotional state is so right on and their relationship becomes so hot, I thought my kindle might melt. 

Hoover is one of the best at weaving a tale that surprises and delights.

I rated this 5 wink read....you just can't put her work down.
