To Libby Mason, Mr. Right has always meant Mr. Rich. A twenty-seven-year-old publicist, she’s barely able to afford her fashionable and fabulous lifestyle, and often has to foot the bill for dates with Struggling Writer Nick, a sexy but perpetually strapped-for-cash guy she’s dating (no commitments–really). So when Ed, Britain’s wealthiest but stodgiest bachelor, enters the picture, her idea of the fairy-tale romance is turned on its head. Libby soon finds herself weighing the advantages of Nick’s sexual prowess and tender heart against Ed’s luxurious lifestyle and unlimited retail therapy. But when the diamond shopping commences, Libby is forced to realize that the time for “maybe” is up. Taking romantic comedy to a hip, sparkling new level, Mr. Maybe is a classic tale of what happens to one girl when her heart and her head aren’t looking for the same thing. With a laugh a minute and a heroine whose struggles in the dating jungle will remind you of your own, Mr. Maybe is a story that will leave you smitten.

I am kind of horrified at how bad this book was. The main character was awful, so were two of her lo...
This book was alright. Parts I really liked and others I thought dragged on beyond belief. I liked the writing style and how I could picture exactly what the author was talking about. This would be why I gave it .5 more than I should
Thoroughly slumped. British chick lit can't even pull me out. I think I got to about 25%, pathetic. The issue was all the sidetracking that was happening that detracted from the main story. This might not be the books fault though-- since it is women's lit, I guess there should be a lot of talk ab...
I hated this main character. She was superficial and an idiot. I couldn't cheer for her at all especially when she was so self involved while her friend was having troubles of her own. Yuck! P. 237
This story was interesting enough to finish but I didn't like the first person writing style and skimmed a lot. The only character I really liked was the heroine's best friend. The heroine was so superficial and the hero was too extreme. Publicist Libby compares her relationship with poor novelist...
