Author: Annabelle Jacobs
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: August 30, 2017
Cover Design: Natasha SnowSummary:
Moving into a new home starts with a bang when Ryan Blackwell celebrates turning thirty. Being hungover means he’s bleary-eyed and clumsy the next day, but even in that state, he can appreciate how sexy and fit his neighbour is.
Matt Thomas isn’t looking for anything long-term—one and done is usually his life rule. Why settle down early, like his sister, when casual relationships are so easy? With Ryan living in the same building, chance encounters are inevitable. When one night together becomes two, a friends-with-benefits deal seems a natural progression.
There’s only one problem: sex with no strings relies on matching expectations, so Ryan can’t help worrying. His huge heart always wants more, but Matt’s been clear about his limits. As passion leads to caring, they’ll have to make some tough decisions—maybe this time, breaking some rules will be worth it if that means they’ll get to share a future.
When Ryan and Matt meet the sparks are everywhere but are they really on the same page when it comes to what they want out of that fire?
I'm not going to say too much about Maybe this Time other than this: its a lovely read that made me smile, what more can you want? Watching Ryan and Matt go from strangers to friends with benefits to possibly more will lift your spirits, warm your heart, and frankly just left me feeling giddier with every word.
I will say that I don't know as I would have the restraint the boys have if my family continued to make their opinions so obvious. Perhaps its my Irish and German sides but I would have found more than a few choice words to point in their direction but not Ryan and Matt, they just take it in as if its second nature, which considering its family and friends it probably is.
Having said all this, don't think that there isn't any kind of conflict for the boys but in a concept not often explored(at least not as much as I would like to see), Ryan and Matt actually do communicate so the conflict(and that might be pushing it a bit "romantic drama" would probably be more fitting) does not last long nor does it create additional issues brought on from the lack of talking. Maybe this Time is a perfectly refreshing summer read and as summer is winding down, it will make for a pretty awesome read any time of year.
