Publisher's Summary

Colleen Hoover, the New York Times best-selling 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.

Maybe not.

Characters extremely unlikable

Maybe this is partly because I didn't realize this was part of a series, so I listened to this on it's own without any information from the other books, but I found it really hard to root for either character in the romantic pairing, and therefore found it really frustrating to listen to.

Warren can't pay his rent and spends all day lying around watching porn (and don't get me started on how disrespectful he was towards Bridget when he was trying to find her own porn video. What an invasion of her privacy!) I'm supposed to want this guy to get his girl? I'm supposed to think he's sexy? Was very turned off by him.

Bridget is not much better. She is rude to the point of nonsense. Is it realistic for her to be this way? I know we delve more into her character later and it is explained, but I still found her hard to deal with. I just couldn't understand why they liked each other, and found their sexual tension forced. I love this genre, but this book gave me none of the fun, romantic feelings that I was expecting.

The writing style itself is fine, and I think I could enjoy other books by this author with more likable characters. I did like the characters of Ridge, Brennan, and Sydney, so maybe their stories will appeal to me more.

The narration had some glitches- It was clear when the author would cut to another take for a few paragraphs, because the pitch of his voice would change, like he might have been standing farther away from the microphone.

Overall, barely worth the three dollar price tag.

Loved this

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bridget because she was just so nuts and reminded me of myself.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book was extremely funny and unexpected. This was a great short read and I want more books like this in the future.

Any additional comments?

I will be listening to another book from this author and perhaps all books from this author.

Looking forward to reading maybe now too 😍😍🤩🤩

Great Read

Maybe Not was a great quick read by Colleen Hoover. Warren finds out that he is now going to have a female roommate and he instantly agrees to the idea. He didn't expect the new female roommate to be the cold and calculating Bridgette. They seem to not be able to stand the sight of each other and can barely be caught in the same room as each other. Warren theorizes that with the hate she carries, her capacity for love is even bigger. I loved reading about the beginning of Warren and Bridgette's relationship.

Great Novela

I read the book the first time and since i just bought Maybe now, i thought to just do the audio of Maybe Not. My main issue is that in Maybe Someday, when Sydney talked, she didn't have a southern accent....SO why does Jason Carpenter feel the need to give her one in Maybe not. It's a silly thing but it throws me off. Besides this... I really do like the book. It gave Bridgett and Warren more of a voice.

Humor and Heart

I really enjoyed this novella and the fact that it focused on Warren and Bridgett. I loved getting a better view of their relationship and getting to know them better. There were many laugh out loud moments but it also has plenty of heart. If you were a fan of Maybe Someday, this novella is not to be missed. If you haven't read Maybe Someday, this one probably isn't going to do much for you. The narrator made Warren come totally alive in my mind and added so much to this story.

Decent addition to Maybe Someday

Could have been more developed in details and less cliché, but otherwise it was a nice story. It showed a different perspective, and maybe even made Bridget likeable in a way.
Didn't hate it , but didn't love it either. I enjoyed the fast pace of this novella, solid listen for a day.

Better than I expected

I wasn't sure what to expect from this book but I had heard great things about the author so I gave it a try. My verdict? This maybe the hottest story I have ever read. With a romance that is a lot more realistic than you usually get.

Definitely recommend it to anyone who is unsure about Coleen Hoover.

Refreshing change

It is nice to have a book where I can relate to the people and it felt like a more real life scenario. no major dramas to thicken the plot just good old fashioned romance -how it happens between normal..ish people.
some moments were laugh out loud funny, it felt like a guy wrote it as opposed to just narrating it so that's down to good writing.
The narration however did detract from the experience for me, I just didn't engage with his voice very well and there were moments were the tone changed like he stopped for a break (it was very obvious)
All in all a good listen, it improved the deeper you got into the characters.
