about the book

Just Maybe by Crystal Walton

When a case of mistaken identity spirals into a more-than-complicated pretend relationship, an adventure seeker and a grammar fanatic just might’ve met each other’s match.

Just Maybe by Crystal WaltonThree weeks. That’s all the time self-made billionaire Cooper Anderson has to respond to discovering he’s a single dad, sell his lake house, and catch a one-way ticket across the world. The quick-witted nanny responding to his ad couldn’t be more of a life saver … and maybe a nice distraction. Until the secrets she’s hiding get a little too close to exposing his own.

The one lead guaranteeing Quinn Thompson a promotion just has to land her back in her hometown to finagle an interview out of Mr. Elusive, of all people. But she can hack it, right? Even while mistaken for the nanny, she can keep things quick and professional. No running into her embarrassing southern family, no stirring up the wounds that’d sent her packing four years ago, and definitely no melting over a stockbroker’s unfair dimples and boyish charm.

Why, oh, why doesn’t anything ever go according to plan?

With both their deadlines closing in before they’re ready, Quinn and Cooper must decide whether the life they’re set on pursuing alone is worth more than the one they could be missing together.

My Thoughts

Cooper and Quinn have to choose between the ambition of their own plans and the attraction of a love and life that sounds too good to be true… factor in the electrified attraction zinging around these two, her zany southern family, plus countless sweet baby moments and y’all won’t be able to put Just Maybe down!

On the surface, Cooper is everyone’s favorite wealthy ladies’ man but his genuine heart and driven work ethic make him a real keeper. My reader heart aches for him as he hides behind that shallow false persona and beats himself up over his past mistakes. While Cooper has made his small fortune through his expertise with investments, he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty and swing a hammer. Swoony!

Quinn is determined to prove her worth and make her family proud through a successful career in journalism. Since we’ve already discussed Cooper’s swooniness, we won’t hold Quinn responsible for losing her mind and accepting the nanny position instead of simply asking for an interview as planned… plus Cooper’s little guy is completely irresistible (like his daddy).

This story really had me thinking about expectations. I don’t know about y’all but I can be my own worst critic. Wouldn’t it be nice to see yourself as your loved ones see you or (even better) how God sees each one of us?! I highly recommend this book and series!

I requested the opportunity to read and review this title through the author. The opinions expressed are my own.

  1. Can we talk about how exceptionally well edited these books are? 😉 JK! Crystal is an editor’s dream. She’s one of the ones that makes me love my job. I get excited every time one of these beauties comes across my desk (and by desk I mean laptop on my couch). Love those Anderson boys.
