Mr. Maybe Read Online Free - 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 it's head.
Mr. Maybe is the tale of her heartfelt but hilarious deliberation, irresistibly chronicled by bestselling author Jane Green. On one hand, Nick makes up for his low bank-account balance by his performance in the sack, or in the bathtub, as the case may be. But life with him means little more than nightly trips to the bar, a dark and grungy apartment, and plenty of dull political tirades to boot. But those blue eyes, and that tender heart...
On the other hand, there's Ed, whose luxurious house and gargantuan bank account are quite tempting to the starving Libby. But his unsavory mustache and bumbling ways make Libby wonder if the platinum AMEX and unlimited "retail therapy" are worth it. He may have fallen in love with her at first sight, but nothing seems to solve his lackluster performance in the sack – even speed reading The Joy of Sex. 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 and minute and a heroine whose struggles in the dating jungle will remind you of your own, Mr. Maybe is a story that all will leave you smitten.

This book made me quit my book club.

The best thing about this book was that it makes you realize that anyone really CAN get published! They should really file it under "inspiration".
I know, I know, I got what I deserved. I just wanted a fun summer read and I loved her book Jemima J, but this was *complete* garbage. The characters w...

This was one Jane Green book from her chick lit days I never read. I wondered why I never bought this and now I know why. I must have read the sample and said no thank you. That was a smart decision. I am kind of horrified at how bad this book was. The main character was awful, so were two of her...

If you want poignancy, you won't get that in this book. This is your average chick literature, with a protagonist whose only goal in mind is to end up with the guy of her dreams.
Now, you may be thinking, why the fuck do I like this book? For starters, I have already breached below my expectations...

This book was utter garbage, how do books like this get published. Firstly I didn't really warm to any of the characters and I couldn't stand the main character Libby; I found her really shallow, unpleasant and materialistic. She really proves how feminism hasn't changed anything if woman are sti...

I don’t know what to expect when I first picked up this novel. Jane Green was not one of the authors that I’m familiar with so I thought it is good to try something new. Sadly to say though, the result was rather frustrating.
The book started off OK but once I passed the first hundred-page, I lite...

The first quarter of the book was good, you get into the story and want to know what will happen… then in the middle part I would say for half of the book I had a very strong sense of déjà-vu with another book I’ve read this year, it was a carbon copy of the story, but checking the publication da...

Here's the usual dilemma in chick-lit novels: A woman struggles to choose between a wealthy man she has no connection with and a poor man she loves. She chooses the poor man and he ends up already being or quickly becoming wealthy. We're all happy. The end. But what if the woman chooses the poor...

I tried to get back to my Rom-Com, chick-lit, Sophie Kinsella style books but I guess I'm way too deep into other genres. This didn't cut it. It was not a hugely disappointing read, just s forgettable, you kind of dread the time you've invested in reading it.
