Some guys are impossible to forget.
Rachel Daughtry has a 10-year plan that leaves no room for mistakes. Or not-so-serious boys—including Oliver Wentworth, the freshman boyfriend she's never forgotten. Now she's back in San Francisco with an awesome-slash-scary new job. Unfortunately, The Plan doesn't cover things like meeting her best friend's new “secret” guy...Oliver.
Fortunately, no one knows that Rachel and Oliver were ever together, and endless bikini wax torture couldn't make Rachel hurt her friend. But it's killing Rachel. She's not over him. Not even a little. And as her 10-year-plan crumbles around her, Rachel realizes that maybe—just maybe—Oliver feels the same way.
Now Rachel is on the verge of losing all control. And her best friend. And the love of her life...
Someday Maybe is a modern take on Jane Austen’s Persuasion that proves a second chance at true love is always worth the risk.
I absolutely adored London's modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice when she wrote Definitely, Maybe In Love so there was no way I was going to pass up the chance to not only get another dose of her great writing but also to get another modern twist of my second most favorite Austen's tale, Persuasion.
I so was not wrong to pick this up, I loved it from the very beginning and how could I not love Spring and Henry's cameo! Yay!
Oliver and Rachel were perfect, everything I would picture in a very modern Fredrick and Anne (love that those were their middle names!). In fact, I am going to go so far as to say that I liked this even more than the P&P retelling. It is by far my favorite Persuasion retelling to date. I loved everything about it.
You could see the insecurities, the heart break, the longing, the love, the resentment, the jealousy. So many emotions so beautifully thought out and displayed.
I completely devoured this in one sitting. I just couldn't get enough. And even though I knew how it would end, I was still biting my nails in anxiety hoping like heck it was a happy one.
