Maybe Not by Colleen Hoover

Star rating: 

Publication date: 22nd December 2015


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.


After the massive hype surrounding Colleen Hoover's novels over Instagram and Tiktok, I thought, "Okay, I must give her books a go". I spotted this little novella as an audiobook on Scribd and because it was short, I thought it would be a great first foray into the Hoover-verse. Unfortunately I feel like it fell a bit short.

Our main character Warren lives with his best friends Bennett and Ridge. When Bridgette moves in, Warren is automatically drawn to her and well, I think you know what comes next.

For me, this read a bit too much like a teenage Wattpad book and perhaps this is a personal thing and I'm just too old for that kind of thing now. It was just sex, sex and more sex. I am no prude, I don't mind that but I just want a bit more storyline too to bulk it up a bit. I didn't really care about the characters or care for how it was written.

I will however say that I loved the addition of a deaf character. I actually think this is the first time I've read a book with a deaf character. This hasn't put me off reading Colleen Hoover books in the future. I will definitely pick up some of the other more hyped-up ones!
