When Warren has the opportunity to live with a female roommate, he instantly agrees. It could be an exciting change.
Or maybe not.
Especially when that roommate is the cold and seemingly calculating Bridgette. Tensions run high and tempers flare as the two can hardly stand to be in the same room together. But Warren has a theory about Bridgette: anyone who can hate with that much passion should also have the capability to love with that much passion. And he wants to be the one to test this theory.
Will Bridgette find it in herself to warm her heart to Warren and finally learn to love?
Pure CoHo: Charming, outstanding, hilarious, and…I’m trying to think of another ‘O’ word…orgasmic? No? With this book, maybe…
I think my two favorite Colleen Hoover books are novellas. I’m serious. Finding Cinderella was absolutely flawless, and I think that Maybe Not was pretty damn perfect as well. Sometimes you don’t need all the extra stuff, you know. The sides and gravy, all those dressings and nonsense. Sometimes all you need is the meat, the hearty stuff that really fills and nourishes you (no offense to vegetarians – you’re superhuman). Maybe Not was 130 words of hearty goodness.
This novella featured two characters (who I loved!) from Maybe Someday, Warren and Bridgette. Warren is a lovable prankster, and Bridgette is, well, an unlovable bitch. He’s free and fun, and she’s tense and angry. A match made in romance heaven. Out of desperation, Bridgette moves into Warren’s apartment, and he finds himself battling (not very hard) not to get hard for his roommate. Of course, Bridgette hates Warren with a fiery passion, and the more heated hatred she throws his way, the hotter he burns for her, and the closer she draws him in.
The best part of this book was the sexual tension, which isn’t something I’ve ever said about a Colleen Hoover book. Her signature style of sass, humor and emotion was all over this one, but it was rendered even more awesome by its sexiness. Warren and Bridgette’s love story went from one of playfulness and raunchiness to true connection, which I thought was romantic. I loved that I got to know more about these smaller players, and I got to fall in love with their touching love story. I read this because I wanted something entertaining to distract me for a few hours, but once I’d finished I realized that hidden in this seemingly small and lightweight package was a heartfelt romance.
