Review | Maybe This Time by Kasie West

“I didn’t even care; he tasted like heaven and I felt like I was floating on air.” 4.25/5 stars!

Attention! This book contains: cherries, barns, a ton of skirts, college applications, football, balloons, corn mazes, fancy food, wedding bouquets, eyeliner, blue eyes, expensive suits, pecan pie, brotherhood, catering, designer sketches, calla lilies, rude chefs and beautiful flower arrangements.

One year. Nine events. Nine chances to . . . fall in love?

Weddings. Funerals. Barbecues. New Year’s Eve parties. Name the occasion, and Sophie Evans will be there. Well, she has to be there. Sophie works for the local florist, so she can be found at every big event in her small hometown, arranging bouquets and managing family dramas.

Enter Andrew Hart. The son of the fancy new chef in town, Andrew is suddenly required to attend all the same events as Sophie. Entitled, arrogant, preppy Andrew. Sophie just wants to get her job done and finish up her sketches so she can apply to design school. But every time she turns around, there is Andrew, getting in her way and making her life more complicated. Until one day she wonders if maybe complicated isn’t so bad after all . . .

Told over the course of one year and following Sophie from event to event, this delightful novel from master of romantic comedy Kasie West shows how love can blossom in unexpected places.

My 10th Kasie West book! I can’t believe I’ve already read 10 books by the ultimate YA queen… that’s insane. I just love how she creates her stories and makes them so light-hearted and fun.

This was still a very different read from Kasie’s regular books since it only took place in specific events over a span of a year. One of my favorite things about this book is the way each event starts. And by this I mean how much I love the way the flowers are highlighted by their descriptions in the beginning.

I also really liked the characters and the hate-to-love romance going on. I just wished this book was released in the spring. This would be perfect for that time of the year!

And even though the book cover is absolutely beautiful, I wish it had something to do with the book itself. The main girl has short hair and doesn’t ride a bike. She has a flower crown, but still, Sophie doesn’t wear flower crowns in the book.

Overall I really enjoyed this book! It’s not my ultimate favorite, but definitely not far from it!

Kasie West is, and forever will be, my YA queen.
