MM Goodness Book Rec - Maybe This Time by Annabelle Jacobs

#MM #Contemporary #Romance 


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.

What a wonderfully romantic and sweet May/October book! I was pulled in right off with the cute but clumsy meet between our two leading men and I never stopped turning pages until I was done. It’s a beautifully told tale of two men who are in it for the sex at the beginning, but soon find themselves drawn to each other on a deeper level.

A lovely comfort read with common men who are perfectly suited for each other. Low angst, lots of rich humor and well-crafted secondary characters. The flow was soothing, the dialog crisp, and the sex scenes hot. Just a delightful read from start to finish!
