Review for Just Say Maybe by Tracy March - 4 out of 5
Real estate lawyer Holly Birdsong’s hike in the Rockies takes an unexpected turn when a smokin’-hot stranger tumbles off his bike and into her path. Turns out he’s purchasing the abandoned Lodge at Wild Rose Ridge, and Holly agrees to take him on as a client—despite her family’s traumatic history with the previous owner, who shamelessly abused the town’s goodwill at every turn. But when their professional relationship turns personal, Holly must reconcile the past with her hopes for the future.
Adding the rustic lodge to his portfolio of adventure properties isn’t just a business decision for Bryce Bennett. The rugged mountains also offer a killer setting for his extreme-sports camps for at-risk teens. What’s not in the blueprints is finding a kindred spirit in his irresistible lawyer, even if she seems apprehensive about getting involved in the deal. Bryce’s plan to ease her mind just might work, as long as no one discovers his secret. Yet he can’t stand hiding the truth from the woman who makes him want to build something permanent: a happily ever after.
MY REVIEW -
I enjoyed Just Say Maybe! The romance was really cute! I especially liked the couple's first meet, and I love how sweet they are with each other; so adorable! I also enjoyed the mystery aspect of this story; although, I would have liked a bit more from the conclusion of the mystery, but I suppose this book is more romance with a bit of mystery, rather than a mystery with a bit of romance, so I didn't mind too much. Bryce has just bought a property in a small town that has a bit of a unpleasant history, so he is in town to finish closing the sale. Bryce is adventurous guy, and while riding his bike in the mountains, he crashes, and there he meets Holly. Bryce and Holly have an instant attraction to each other, and Holly gives him her number, but it turns out that Holly is Bryce's estate attorney, so they cross each other's paths anyway. The property that Bryce is buying is really cool, Lodge at Wild Rose Ridge, is in very pitiful shape, but there is something hidden in the Lodge, and that is where the mystery begins! I liked the progression of Bryce and Holly's relationship, and I like that they were honest about their feelings for each other; no games is nice. Just Say Maybe is fun, sweet, and I was entertained to the very end! I look forward to more books in this series, and by Tracy March!
