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 then 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 review may contain spoilers, so fair warning, upon reading the review.

Maybe We Will is the first book in the “Silver Harbor” series but I also believe it’s part of the “Love in Bloom” series. I am not familiar with that later series (as it’s massive, almost reach 100 titles) but it seems like it could be as there are connecting cast of characters that I believe are a part of that series according to the author’s note in the back of this book “Maybe We Will”. I am such a newbie to this author’s work, she is such a prolific author, I mean she could be a big competitor for authors like Christine Feehan or Nora Roberts. From what I have read so far from this author has been charming small-town coastal reads, which tends to be the theme/setting in what this author Melissa Foster tends to write within her stories. I will say that I absolutely adored this book here. While it felt like a long reading, I think there was a part of me that just wanted to immerse myself so completely by this story.

Maybe We Will is a sweet coastal romance with some foodie lovin’ that features:

  • Aiden Aldridge-Financial Whiz, Billionaire, Workaholic, Loves His Family
  • Abby de Messiéres-Chef, Devoted to Her Sisters, Dreamer

Maybe We Will is a story that starts off with our hero and heroine meeting on the beach. Abby is going out for a run working out her frustrations and our hero Aiden, is chillin’ on a bistro chair with a pastry and coffee when he and Abby run into each other and sparks fly pretty quickly between each other and they share a pastry while appreciating the beauty of the coast. Abby has just returned home when her mother passes away, she has quit a job that she hated, and dreams of rebuilding her father’s restaurant. Aiden has come to relax on orders of his sister. He tends to be a workaholic and she is forcing him on a vacation and even gave him a list of items he must do and take pictures of. As Abby and Aiden learn each other, a friendship builds between them while the chemistry builds into something more. They explore the town together, while rebuilding her father’s restaurant together, and their chemistry and friendship turn into something so much more solid and real, but there are secrets that Aiden has kept from Abby. And when the truth is revealed, their love will be tested? Will Abby and Aiden be able to fight for the love they have built so quickly and will that love be strong enough to stand the tide upahead?

But in her heart she didn’t believe it, and walking away would mean losing the truest love she’d ever known and the only love she wanted

Maybe We Will was such a beautifully told story and I was so entranced by this story. Now I have read this author before, but there was something almost “magical” in this romance. Even though it felt like a long read, there were so many times I was caught up in the “moment” that was so connecting and romantic and felt so relatable. What I have really admired about this author is how real her stories feel, and I love seeing how human and vibrant her characters are written. This story was truly beautiful in every way. What we see in this romance is just worth every single moment of the reading. I became so invested in this story. First off the setting was SO well done, I could almost feel the beach breeze on my face as I was reading and all the scents portrayed were so perfect. It made me wish for summer. The characters in this one were so entrenching, and they win their way into your heart. I really loved how invested they were in each other. The type of investment that goes so much deeper than just the sexual intimacy, but to the soul of who they are. The way they care for each other, see to each other’s needs and fight for each other in both the small and big ways was truly gratifying.

You haven’t known me long enough to realize this, but I want you to know that I’m only overtly sexual with you, Abs. You bring out parts of me I wasn’t even sure I possessed anymore and sides of me I never knew existed

This is a story that is focused on family and community. We see how much family means to both Aiden and Abby. Abby, even though just losing her mother, has discovered a hidden sister neither she or her sister knew about, but unlike her sister, she is thrilled to have another family member to call her own. The dynamics between the three women are so unique but fun. You see the deep connection they have despite their differing personalities from each other. Then we have the relationship between Aiden and his sister. (I am pretty sure she has a book so I want to read that soon) I just love how protective she is over her brother but also has no shame in forcing him to take vacations and find some love along the way. You can see how much they are devoted to each other. Then we have the community that is shown in this story as the backdrop and I want to LIVE there. Its so quaint, charming, and cozy. The way that they watch out for each other was so special. I just couldn’t seem to get enough of it.

You changed my world, Abigail de Messiéres, and when I come back, I’m going to change yours

Overall I found Maybe We Will to be a deep connecting romance that fed all of my romantic needs in a story, its a relatable charming read that is bound to stun you in the small moments and evoke emotion in the bigger moments—a truly stunning read that took my breath away!
