Some guys are impossible to forget.
Rachel Daughtry has a 10-year plan that leaves no room for mistakes. Or not-so-serious boys—including Oliver Wentworth, the freshman boyfriend she's never forgotten. Now she's back in San Francisco with an awesome-slash-scary new job. Unfortunately, The Plan doesn't cover things like meeting her best friend's new “secret” guy...Oliver.
Fortunately, no one knows that Rachel and Oliver were ever together, and endless bikini wax torture couldn't make Rachel hurt her friend. But it's killing Rachel. She's not over him. Not even a little. And as her 10-year-plan crumbles around her, Rachel realizes that maybe—just maybe—Oliver feels the same way.
Now Rachel is on the verge of losing all control. And her best friend. And the love of her life...
Last year Ophelia London gave us Definitely, Maybe in Love, a modern take on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. I loved it! This time, she takes on Persuasion in Someday Maybe. While I didn’t love it as much as the first book, I still liked it a lot.
Rachel and Oliver fell in love during their freshman year of college. The relationship was impacting her schooling and 10-year-plan, so she broke up with him. Fast forward six years, and they are living in the same city again. Let the fun begin.
Rachel and Oliver’s situation was frustrating, but not in an annoying way. Their love story is one of timing and patience. They end up running in the same circle of friends, so they’re often around each other. The chemistry is still there, but they’re never single at the same time. Besides, what they had was in the past and should stay there. Right? Oh, the torture and angst!
There are a lot of fun characters in Someday Maybe. Rachel has two best friends who are entertaining. Meghan can be a tad annoying, but gets better over time. Oliver’s best friends don’t play a huge role in the story, but I still liked them. I liked Oliver’s sister the most, though; she’s insightful, and a good friend to Rachel. Oh! Spring and Henry, from the first book, make an appearance, too. Nothing big, but definitely fitting. And cute.
Someday Maybe is a quick read, but still a lot of fun. If you’re a Jane Austen fan, then you should read this. If you’re not a Jane Austen fan, then you should also read this. Bottom line, read it.
