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 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.
Love me some Aiden
Abby is the daughter of Ava and the late Olivier who own the Bistro in town. Her and her sister Deirdra come home to the Silver Island after their mom passes and find out that they have a sister they never knew about and a Bistro that has seen better days. Aiden we previously met in his sister, Remi Divine’s book. Aiden and Remi’s parents died when Remi was a little girl and Aiden stepped in and raised her by himself. After giving up his life to raise Remi and be her manager all these years, Remi decides to make Aiden take a mini vacation on Silver Island. After laying eyes on Abby at the Bistro, the workaholic in him can’t not help her get the Bistro back up and running. I have been waiting to see who Melissa was going to put with Aiden and I can’t imagine him with anyone other then Abby. She shows Aiden there is more to life then work and he shows her and unconditional I’ve that she realizes she doesn’t want to live without. I love how Melissa had a story between Aiden and Abby but also a side story of the bond between sisters...add in all of Melissa’s other characters and funny business and you have a wonderful read!
Maybe We Will is a what I would call a fairytale romance. Aiden was the perfect boyfriend. You could tell he had fallen at first site and he was completely smitten with Abby. They way he pursued her was very romantic.
Abby is a bit of a dreamer. She was just as smitten of Aiden, and he completely swept her off her feet. She reminded me of a woodland creature singing and twirling in the forest. These two were perfect for each other.
Everything about Aiden and Abby falling in love was more fairytale than real life. While some readers will love that just as much, others might prefer a bit more realistic approach. I will admit to being somewhere in the middle. I do love a good fairytale romance, but I also need some reality to it as well.
This did have an amazing setting and a lot of wonderful side characters that added to the romantic feel of the story. It sounds like some of these side characters may have a book of their own. I believe this is my first book by this author and I am intrigued to see what some of these other couples books were like. I'm curious if all books have this fairytale flavor.
