MY REV (Copy)

Kasie West’s books are either a hit or miss for me and I’m happy to say that this was a hit for me. Maybe This Time is a stand-alone YA enemies to lovers story. I wanted to give it a shot because i’m a huge fan of enemies to lovers stories. I actually didn’t expect to like it but I really did. This one was a bit less mushy than her other books. Although I’ve enjoyed it, it isn’t without its faults. The characters were pretty fun and I really liked the small town setting.

Sophie is ambitious and dreams of attending fashion designing school in New York. She works at a local florist in her small town and arranges flowers and bouquets in local events. I’ve mixed thoughts about the heroine. She was a bit judgy in the beginning which really annoyed me but It doesn’t mean that I hate her because I really enjoyed her character development. Andrew Hart is a charming guy whose dad is a famous chef. I honestly didn’t find him arrogant as the blurb specified. Sophie was pretty rude to him at the beginning just because he stole a single flower. She doesn’t like him because he’s the son of a famous chef and he’s from a big city. Every time they meet in the events they clashed with each other and I loved their banters. The romance was definitely a slow burn. The reason for the hate between them was cliched but I did enjoy watching them get closer with each event.

The plot was fun and entertaining filled with right amount of  family drama, friendship, and romance. I quite enjoyed Sophie’s relationship with her little brother and her mother. Andrew’s relationship with his father was also a great addition. He’s not completely bad but I honestly found him outright rude and arrogant. I think no one can stand him. The story was easy to predict but it was still a fun ride. The writing was amazing. The book was written in Sophie’s POV but I personally prefer dual POV’s in my romance. The small town setting was pretty good and the secondary characters were nice.

Overall, it was a good read! I would recommend this book if you’re into sweet enemies to lovers story. It’s just a light and fun read!
