Maybe We Won’t was so full of raw emotions that tore at my heart strings. The story was so real, I felt immersed in it.
Disclosure: I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
A sexy and soul-stirring novel about love, family, and rediscovering what matters most by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of Maybe We Will.
When workaholic Boston attorney Deirdra de Messiéres is passed over for a well-deserved promotion, she takes a two-month hiatus to show her boss just how much he needs her and heads home to Silver Island. But beyond seeing her sisters happy, home is not where Deirdra’s heart is. She has no interest in their family restaurant, the Bistro, or reliving hurtful childhood memories, and absolutely no interest in spending a single second with Josiah “Jagger” Jones, the Bistro’s too-laid-back musician and chef. Sure, the hippie is hot, but he drives her nuts. The guy lives in a van with his dog, and he can’t even commit to a solid work schedule. To make matters worse, he’s always around. She needs to get off the island, stat.
Jagger has overcome his own personal trials to place stock in life’s pleasures: family, friends, peace…and if he has his way, one positively beautiful, absolutely uptight attorney. Jagger knows he’s the perfect person to help Deirdra deal with her hurtful past and find her way back to being happy.
A chance encounter leads to deep conversation, and night after liberating night, Deirdra lets down her guard. But neither has plans to stay on Silver Island. Free-spirited Jagger has wanderlust, and Deirdra has a career to return to. They’re on different paths, and plans for a future together don’t stand a chance. But when has anything gone according to plan?

Oh my heart…
Maybe We Won’t was so full of raw emotions that tore at my heart strings. I have no other words to describe the feelings and emotions that I experienced while reading.
I feel as though Deirdra and I share a similar story which made this story so much more raw for me. It felt personal and really drew on my emotions and got my wheels spinning.
I understand growing up and having to be an adult at a young age to care for younger siblings. I understand how a parent’s alcoholism can affect you as a child, as a teen, as a grown up – in every aspect of your life. How you feel you need structure and organization to be someone else and prove that you are better than the alcoholic you grew up with. I understand the rigidness and the inability to be laid back and “go with the wind”. I understand Deirdra so much more than any other female character I think Melissa has ever written.
Josiah, aka Jagger, was something surreal. Laid back, go with the flow, loving, caring, thoughtful, musical, sexy, can cook – a dream come true.
I loved Jagger’s bond with his family, especially his brother; as well as his connection to the community – not just on the island, but everywhere he went.
Jagger and Deidra’s coming together was definitely bumpy and difficult; steamy and torturous.
I loved being able to catch up with Island life, Abby, and Cait, too!
I say this all the time, but Maybe We Won’t definitely jumped to the top of my favorite list. The personal connection really allowed me to immerse myself in the story, the love of family, and falling in love with Jagger and life.
Maybe We Will (Silver Harbor Book 1)
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.
Maybe We Should (Silver Harbor Book 2)
After spending years wondering who she was, tattoo artist Cait Weatherby finally found her answers on the sandy shores of Silver Island. With two half sisters she never knew existed, a group of friends she adores, and a devastatingly charming admirer who flirts with her at every turn, she’s ready to figure out her next steps. The trouble is, Cait lives in the shadows of a dark past, and she can’t afford complications that might cause her to lose the family she’s only just found―complications like blue-eyed boatbuilder Brant Remington, who is as open as she is guarded. If only the sexy charmer would take the hint…
Brant is Cait’s opposite in every way, but he’s drawn to everything about the sexy newcomer―from the quiet strength that rivals the caution in her mossy-green eyes to her tough facade that he can’t wait to strip away.
As Brant works his magic, Cait’s walls come down. But as sweet as that feels, Cait knows how quickly good things can turn bad. It’s going to take more than a little trust to beat the ghosts of her past and claim the future they both deserve.
