Reviews Maybe This Time

  • Lola
    This was my 9th book from Kasie West, which is a fun coincidence because this story includes 9 events Sophie attends that affect her friendships, family and love life. Like the majority of Kasie West’s books, this was a page-turner. This author is great with banter. Even if you don’t particularly like the characters, the conversations between them are entertaining and very realistic. I’ve said this I don’t know how many times before, and ...

    Very cute. Loved the format of skipping between each event the characters meet at. Audio was great.This was my first of Kasie West's novels I've read and now I want to read them all!

    Full Review on The Candid Cover4.5 StarsMaybe This Time by Kasie West had been one of my most anticipated reads this summer as I love everything Kasie West writes. I was not disappointed with this book and its concept of two characters falling for each other over the course of nine events. Both Sophie and Andrew are likeable characters, and there is a prominent theme of the importance of family throughout the book. I loved this one, and I can’t...

    I’m 10000% down for anything Kasie writes and I rarely read the synopsis. I liked Sophie and Andrew and of course BFF Micah. She’s got a lot of heart and ambition and it was great to see her grow into her confidence. Andrew was charming and unsure and Micah was just delightful. Plot wise, I loved the idea that they only saw each other at events. It was an interesting way for time to pass. My main complaint is that I wanted more sweetness betw...

    I'm not normally into Rom-Coms but Kasie West just might have changed my mind. I feel like I have been gushing over this one just a little bit. It was just so CUTE!!! It was decent and clean and didn't have any cliche love triangles and no cheating so that made for a nice read. And for the first time in a very long time I loved the characters! They were a bit snarky at times but no one walked around with a huge chip on their shoulder. And while t...

    3 Stars!! One year. Nine events. Nine chances to . . . fall in love? Another classic, Sweet Story - from KW!!! This story is about Sophie- just a girl working for a local florist, trying to save up to get into the college of her dreams. She is focused and determined to follow her dreams. Enter Andrew Hart. The son of the fancy new chef in town, Andrew is suddenly required to attend all the same events as Sophie. Entitled, arrogant, preppy Andre...

    "I didn’t even care; he tasted like heaven and I felt like I was floating on air.”Usually, with any Kasie West book, it’s an instant love for me. But this took me quite some time to get into and I felt as if I walked into the middle of a conversation. This was sort of cute, just not my favorite of hers. At times I felt that there wasn't much of a plot. There was no lead-way to what was happening, you just jump straight in head first. The ba...

    the typical kasie west book... which basically means it wooed me and swept me off my feet but didn't make me completely fall madly in love with it. i loved all the characters and the idea of the story behind this book, but the dynamics of the plot in general was just meh. the book wasn’t dull by any means. i liked all the adorable and awkward encounters, all the events and parties, the best friend stand off, and the family drama. i liked that t...

    she does it againnnnnnI enjoyed this so much actually. The structure is so interesting and something that I've never read before. Basically, the mc works for a florist and provides flowers for most of her small town's events. The story only cuts in during these events over the course of about a year. So, you get to see these snapshots of her life, her friendships, her *not* relationship with the son of a famous chef lol.The hate to love situation...

    3.5 StarsI mark my calendar and count the days whenever I hear about a new Kasie West book. I want to be there on release day ready to swoon!Maybe This Time tells the story of a year in the life of Sophie Evans. She’s currently working for a local florist, but her heart and dreams are full of fashion design. Colors, textures, patterns, and inspirations! All Sophie can think about is getting out of her small, southern town for college in New Yor...

  • michelle (magical reads)
    4.5 starsI was hesitant bc I haven’t this author’s books since 2016 (they were getting…repetitive)but honestly I am HERE for a yearlong contemporary in which we only get to see special events!!I am HERE for hate-to-love in contemporaries!!and I am ESPECIALLY here for the protagonist not really knowing how to flirt without teasing / being mean bc !! relatable!!
  • Melissa Veras
    I honestly wasn't sure about reading this book, even though I love Kasie West, because I thought this was going to be your typical bad boy story. Oh, why did I ever doubt Kasie West?I really loved the dynamics between Sophie and Andrew ♥ Micah, Sophie's best friend, got on my nerve a lot of the time, but well is too much to ask for perfection.
  • turniip
    Probably my favorite YA rom-com from the recent months!Maybe This Time starts with Sophie arranging flowers for her florist/party planning job at a Valentine's event. Her best friend works as a caterer with her father, and they've just signed on to be mentored by a famous chef for a year. This stroke of good luck for them means that Andrew, his son, will be around them, a boy who consistently taunts and irritates Sophie at all of the events they ...

    3.5 starsAnother really cute, fun read by Kasie West. I always seem to read her books in one sitting because they are so addicting. This was a YA enemies to lovers, HS romance. I am finding it hard to fully commit to a 4 star rating because there were a couple things that really annoyed me throughout the book.Sophie, that main character, was extremely insensitive and immature. She did eventually learn how to grow from the situation, but it got to...
  • Lauren R.
    3.5 stars. I definitely hear why people don’t like this one as much and totally get it. For some reason, I really wasn’t that annoyed by Sophie. I thought she was a bit mean in the beginning but somehow the audiobook may have masked it for me? Not sure. I think they had good chemistry but the romance was a little too slow-burn, primarily because it felt disjointed with the time jumps. Still really enjoyed the premise though, so I’m not sure...

    I can't believe it has taken me this long to get to this book since Kasie West is one of my absolute favourite authors out there. I always know what to expect: easy and fun YA romance. And this was just that so i'm very satisfied!
  • Tiffany Chiang
    FULL REVIEW: West has always been my contemporary-writing queen, but truthfully, I do think that I’m starting to age out of her primary audience. Her stories have either been a hit-or-miss, and this one seemed to be lacking a special spark to make me completely immersed in the characters and their lives. Maybe This Time had a cute premise and the potential to be a heart-warming story, but it lacked ...

    Can I give Kasie a big hug because she is queen

    Got this out of my mailbox around 9pm last night and read it from then till 3 am, shh! Don't tell my husband lol. Had to make myself put it down to get some sleep but picked it right back up this morning. So good! Kasie West books are like chocolate for me. Have to have them and just can't get enough. 😍

    4 stars (almost 4.5)Another Kasie West book, another super cute story. As I had with a few other Kasie books, I started out not really liking the main character. I never outright dislike them, but they come across as being kind of hypocritical, arrogant or brattish at first, which is entirely the point and it highlights the character development they go through. Basically, they feel like they've got their whole life figured out at the age of 16-1...

    If I were to have a list of summer reads, Kasie West would definitely be on that list! This was such an easy and enjoyable read. You kind of knew what kind of ending you would get and boy was I looking forward to it! I haven't read a Kasie West book in a while but they're normally chock full of strong, quirky and adorable characters.In Maybe This Time, Sophie Evan lives in a small town where she works for the local florist who is usually taking c...
