Description:

She’s never had a no-strings fling. He’s never had anything else. But maybe this time will be an exception?

After a year of mourning her fiancé, Alexis Parker has worked hard to rediscover what she wants out of life. Fresh out of the military and back stateside, her brother offers her a marketing job at the Stag Distillery. Ready for a new challenge, Alexis agrees to accompany her new co-worker Jake Cooper on a Stag cross-country promotional tour. He may have an infamous playboy reputation, but Alexis is surprised to find out that there is more to him than meets the eye. And she likes what she sees. . .

Jake promised Alexis’s brother that he’d be an absolute gentleman. Of course, that was before he and Alexis hit the road, and they both agree that what Alexis’s big brother doesn’t know won’t hurt him. The plan: to keep their fling confined to the RV, and everything will go back to normal once they head home. Things progress in ways neither of them could have imagined, and Jake realizes that he and Alexis make a perfect mix. Can he convince her that he’s ready to shake things up and give true love a shot in Maybe for You?

What Other’s Thought:

“A fun, sweet, entertaining story as well as emotional and heartwarming. I loved Alex and Jake together, as their romance was fun and sexy, with their chemistry off the wall.” — The Reading Cafe

Maybe For You is an excellent read that you will not want to put down!” — Working Mommy Journal

“This is a great romance with heart and with characters you can’t help but root for.” — I Wish I Lived In a Library

“If you enjoy a heart tugging and feel good modern love story this is a book you will not want to miss.” — Book Him Danno

About the Author:

A1LtKZEJXcL._US230_Nicole McLaughlin wrote her first full-length book (six pages) about the birth of her baby sister, when she was eight years old. She only finished it because her mother bribed her with a Rick Astley cassette tape.

Sad, but true. Now her characters are what keep her writing and her subject matter has gotten a little bit deeper and a lot more romantic. She resides in a small town outside Kansas City with her husband and three sons.

When she isn’t writing, she’s a wedding and portrait photographer who loves to cook and watch historical dramas or documentaries.

My Thoughts:

I read the first two books in this series and although I am basically a historical romance fan I did enjoy the reads. This one however never really held my attention.

It’s just another friends to lovers scenario and was a bit dry. It’s like warmed over toast. It just gets hard to digest and is not nearly as appealing as the start of this series was.
I did read it but just basically went through the motions as this book never grabbed my complete attention.
The entire series although linked by some of the characters can be read as standalone titles. This one in fact may be more enjoyable if you had not read the first two books.

I gave this book 3.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization. These are characters we have previously met in the first two books and a stab at giving them their own story.

I received this book as a complimentary digital ARC by invitation from the publisher. This in no way affected my opinion of this title. All thoughts expressed are my own.

Synopsis:

What if the person who is so, so, so wrong for you is really so, so, so right, but you’re too afraid to give love a chance?

The billionaire romance that defied the odds. Two opposites unite in a fun and frisky heart-warming sweet romance.
Last Christmas, art therapist Issy Riley was jilted by her fiancé. This Christmas she’s running away. A week with a client on his private Fijian island promises to save her from cheating men and the London festive season. But when the client turns out to be a gorgeous and magnetic Italian billionaire, he threatens her resolve to never again trust her heart to the wrong man.

Milan fashion house leader and avowed bachelor Massimiliano Balforni has no intention of taking a vacation, despite his sister’s insistence that he subject himself to an art therapy retreat following a minor heart attack. With an important collection due, he intends to fire his therapist and work, instead. But the determined and striking Issy gives his heart palpitations of a far more dangerous kind.

The one thing Max and Issy agree on: they are as wrong for each other as wrong gets. He’s a workaholic playboy who believes emotion is a weakness. She’s a romantic who yearns for a happily ever after.

As the tropical heat soars, they discover that in this battle between work and play, resistance only fuels attraction—and sometimes two wrongs make a very passionate right.

Set in two beautiful paradises—Milano, Italy and the tropical Pacific islands of Fiji.

Praise for Book One in the Passion Down Under series—Married by Christmas

“Mollie Mathews has created an instantly gripping dynamic between Issy and Massimilliano that beautifully blends their animosity and their undeniable attraction, making the tension soar.” ~ Laura, Harlequin Mills and Boon
“I really enjoy Mollie’s style of writing – it’s in the 21st century and relates to every woman who has been trashed by a bloke. The abandonment issues experienced by Max are also so relevant to our current world, so many have been emotionally stunted or abandoned. This is a story that resonates with me and I could not put it down. Mollie is just such a good writer with enormous appeal in her story – an excellent read on a rainy day.” ~ Rae Waterhouse
“I couldn’t get away for a holiday this year but was lucky enough to stumble across Mollie Mathews book Married by Christmas. With inviting backdrops of Italy and Fiji to set the scene and passionate but angst ridden leading characters, it makes the perfect holiday reading.” ~ Laura Virgo
“Beautiful. Resonated in my soul, gives me hope that I will meet my Prince one day and he will love me for who I am.” ~ Amazon Review
“A gorgeous escapist read. Loved the flirty spark between Max and Issy, and as for the location … sigh … I wanna be there. Will definitely be looking out for other books by this author. Recommended.” ~ Amazon Review

New York Times Bestselling Author Carey Heywood

From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a dark and twisted retelling of the beloved fairytale, Cinderella!

My name is Ashley Ellis…

I was thirteen years old when my mother – retired supermodel, Tig – married Mosier Răumann, who was twice her age and the head of the Răumann crime family.

When I turned eighteen, my mother mysteriously died. Only then did I discover the dark plans my stepfather had in store for me all along; the debauched “work” he expected me to do.
