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.

It's been awhile since I've had this much fun reading a British Chick Lit novel. I was expecting a fairly exciting but predictable read regarding the dating and mating plights of a twentysomething singleton. However, Mr. Maybe surprised me with its genuine storyline, pleasant humor, and characters that you care about. Mr. Maybe begins in a typical fashion -- single and searching Libby Mason has a great job in Public Relations (natch!), wonderful and supportive friends, and an overwhelming desire to find the man of her dreams, preferably with a very large bank account. So, yes, I was bumbling along, enjoying myself, reveling in the familiarity, when suddenly this book turned serious (but in a lighthearted, fun sort of way....)! First there comes Nick -- gorgeous, sexy, and unemployed. Lots of great chemistry happening here, but since Nick is trying to devote more time on getting his novel published, the relationship hits a dead end. But then Ed happens. And while he...
This is a PERFECT summer read ~~ light, fluffy and funny. When I read out excerpts of this book to my boyfriend, he laughed over it. It is such a dishy read! Libby is an aspiring woman who dreams of living in a fancy house, wearing designer duds, lunching at the coolest places in London, wining and dining, hobnobbing with the rich and famous ~~ but in her job as a public relations gal, it doesn't seem likely that her dreams would come true. Till she meets Ed, a successful financial investor ~~ and shows her a glimpse of the enticing world she has always dreamed of. Only to get cold feet as the day to start shopping for an engagement ring nears. Also, she cannot forget Nick, the last boyfriend she had before Ed ~~ the guy who is just perfect for her. This book is hilarious in some takes and a fast read. I highly recommend taking this book to the beach (or a camping trip like I did) and prepare for a fun afternoon enjoying a light-hearted read!!
This book was a riot. I read it while on the stairmaster at 6AM when nothing is funny. But I was laughing out loud as people looked at me thinking I was clearly insane. There are so many funny lines in this book, I found myself trying to explain them to people. The main character is great -- from her relationship with family, to friends, and of course, men, she is a real, genuine, fun and funny person. I will miss reading about her! There is nothing original or unpredictable about this book, except that the main character is not trying to improve her looks or lose weight. She does, however, struggle with her true identity. Is she a socialite type? Sophisticated, slique? Or all of the above. But this book is a blast. Surely anyone who loves the new genre of Brit books will love this. Libby, a PR exec, loyal friend, and all around great girl decides to have a "fling" with the gorgeous, but not quite succesful, Nick. He agrees, as they both love spending time together...
