From the acclaimed author of Forever, Interrupted and After I Do comes a breathtaking new novel about a young woman whose fate hinges on the choice she makes after bumping into an old flame; in alternating chapters, we see two possible scenarios unfold—with stunningly different results.

At the age of twenty-nine, Hannah Martin still has no idea what she wants to do with her life. She has lived in six different cities and held countless meaningless jobs since graduating college. On the heels of leaving yet another city, Hannah moves back to her hometown of Los Angeles and takes up residence in her best friend Gabby’s guestroom. Shortly after getting back to town, Hannah goes out to a bar one night with Gabby and meets up with her high school boyfriend, Ethan.

Just after midnight, Gabby asks Hannah if she’s ready to go. A moment later, Ethan offers to give her a ride later if she wants to stay. Hannah hesitates. What happens if she leaves with Gabby? What happens if she leaves with Ethan?

In concurrent storylines, Hannah lives out the effects of each decision. Quickly, these parallel universes develop into radically different stories with large-scale consequences for Hannah, as well as the people around her. As the two alternate realities run their course, Maybe in Another Life raises questions about fate and true love: Is anything meant to be? How much in our life is determined by chance? And perhaps, most compellingly: Is there such a thing as a soul mate?

Hannah believes there is. And, in both worlds, she believes she’s found him.

Review ♥ In Flight by R.K. Lilley

Review ♥ In Flight by R.K. Lilley

I think my rating for In Flight might be higher had I read the book a few years ago. You have a dominant, enigmatic, gorgeous billionaire who refuses to date. You also have a 23-year-old virgin who has never even had a boyfriend, but gets lured into the billionaire’s hardcore BDSM lifestyle. The story loses some of its freshness in the post-Fifty Shades of Grey era, but there are enough differences to keep things interesting.

Review ♥ Well Hung by Lauren Blakely

Review ♥ Well Hung by Lauren Blakely

Big Rock was the first book I’d read by Lauren Blakely, and I instantly became a fan. While not officially called a series, she has written a collection of unique and enjoyable spin-off standalones since then. Well Hung is part of that assortment, and it’s equally charming, witty, and oh so sexy.

Review ♥ The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

Review ♥ The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

I can’t believe The Hating Game is Sally Thorne’s first novel. This book is such a joy from beginning to end. It has all the makings of a great enemies to lovers romance: a quirky, smart, sweet but lonely girl; a gorgeous, intelligent but antagonistic hero; tons of banter and bickering; hilarious shenanigans; and a slow burn. However, it’s the execution of the refreshing plot that makes this story so lovely.
