Maybe We Will by Melissa Foster

He’s a sexy billionaire with a to-do list, and she’s just moved to the top of it. Maybe We Will by Melissa Foster. Now Available.

From Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of She Loves Me, comes a sexy and heart-warming novel about finding love—and family—where you least expect it.

When chef Abby de Messiéres returns to Silver Island with her sister to get their late mother’s affairs in order, she expected to inherit her mother’s bistro along with their childhood home, not to discover a half-sister they never knew existed, and a handsome vacationer camped out on her mother’s patio.

Workaholic Aiden Aldridge has been sent to Silver Island on a work-free vacation, armed with a “Let Loose list,” and ordered to get a life by the much-younger sister he raised after the death of their parents. After years of focusing on his sister’s well-being, he’s blindsided by his intense attraction to the gorgeous, free-spirited Abby.

Aiden might not know much about chilling out, but he’s excellent at striking deals. He helps Abby with the restaurant in exchange for her help in tackling the items on his list. Sparks fly as Aiden and Abby work, and play, side by side. Intimate conversations lead to steamy kisses and undeniable passion. But there’s more to Aiden than Abby knows, and when the truth comes out, their new romance is put to the test, as the two find out if true love really can conquer all.

This may well be book one of a new series, but it is a part of a huge family of wonderfully interconnecting books. Just last month I read My True Love, which is also set on Silver Island, and so it was a real treat to catch up with some of that gang of friends again so soon – let alone some Dark Knights come to help out too. I love all of these books, and this is an excellent addition to the collection.

Abby and her sister, Deirdra, are back on the island due to their mother's death. She had been the source of much pain for the women after their father's death, but little did they expect to now find out they had a half-sister, Cait. Now the three of them have to steer through the business of sorting out the failing family bistro and their feelings for each other. In this book we get Abby's story, but no doubt the other sisters will get their chance, and there are hints already as to who!

Aiden has seen the run-down bistro and put in a good offer – something he keeps close to his chest when he meets Abby there one morning. The sparks between them are unexpected and even ill-timed, but strong enough that they choose to pursue them. And thus we are drawn into Abby's plans to revive the family business, using her cheffing skills and supported by Aiden and Cait.

I loved all the people who came and helped, and how it was clear that their mother has been well supported in their absence. It helped build a strong foundation for Abby when everything else seemed to be in flux. The descriptions of the newly renovated bistro sounded fabulous, and definitely worth a visit.

We knew from the beginning just how complicated the relationship between these two was going to be, and I did find myself rolling my eyes at their decisions at times! Even if a move comes from a good place, it can still be a mistake... but they did learn, and take a few minutes to take stock of the situation before going entirely off the deep end.

If you love this family of books, then this will be a good addition to your collection – it is not too bad on the needing a tissue front, but do expect to stay up late reading, as it is difficult to stop the pages turning.

I loved everything about this story but there seemed to be something missing, at least for me. I can't put my finger on it but there was something. Maybe it was the fact that Aiden waited so long to tell Abby who he really was and what his business dealing was. It seemed to me that he was hiding from her something important and he knew it could ruin what they were starting together.

Abby has come home to Silver Island to sell or keep their family bistro. After their father passed away, their mother kept the bistro going while Abby and her sister went on with their own lives. What she finds is a half-sister and a gorgeous man she didn't see coming.

As Abby and Aiden work side by side at the bistro, the relationship between them begins to sizzle and bloom. He wants to help her to get the bistro up and running and make it a success. All the while he is learning that you can slow down and live your life without working all the time.

Can Abby forgive him when she learns the truth? Will Aiden be able to explain why he did what he did to help her? Is there a future for them in Silver Harbor?

I love author Melissa Foster and knew I wanted to read this one even without reading the blurb. Her stories are always great and leave you feeling loved. This is a great story with a perfect couple that might not get what they deserve if they don't work for it. If you haven't read this author before, what are you waiting for, she is awesome.

M/F Romance

Abby and her sisters are back on the island and trying to figure out what to do with their mom's estate. Abby has big dreams for her dad's old diner, but she has to convince herself and her sisters that she can pull it off.

Aiden is a workaholic. His sister has sent him on a needed vacation, but Aiden is finding it hard to turn his work brain off. He misses the hustle, he misses the meetings. Aiden knows that he needs a break, but it really isn't in him to do that.

During a chance encounter, Aiden and Abby find themselves a balm to each other’s souls.

While I normally really enjoy Foster's books, this one just kind of dragged on for me. It was incredibly long and not a lot happens. I wanted more spark, more intrigue, or something. I am hoping that Cait's story will have more to it. She intrigued me the most.
