This YA contemporary novella has a very Flirting and maybe more premise with the hero falling in love with an older girl and dealing with that age difference through the turbulent high school years. The story follows Ryan and Brooke's changing relationship over a few years. My favorite part of this book was the hero, Ryan.
It is rare for a YA contemporary to have a male narrator and I loved how Higgins depicted Ryan's experiences. His voice is realistic and really helped readers understand his Flirting and maybe more. His personality was well-developed and he matured quite a bit over the course of the story which is sometimes difficult for authors to show in shorter stories. I am also a huge baseball fan so I loved all the scenes involving Ryan's games and relationships with his teammates.
The main issue I had with this book was the character of Brooke, the girl Ryan has been in love with since his sophomore year. She annoyed me from the moment I met her and I just never got over that initial impression. I thought she was whiny, ignorant, and completely selfish regarding her relationship with Ryan.
Readers didn't get to know much about Brooke's personal life other than her issues with her stepfather. I could sympathize with her difficult home life, but it was frustrating when she didn't show the maturity that I thought Ryan did. I just couldn't see what Ryan saw in her and why he was willing to put up with her crap throughout the story. I also thought the development of Ryan and Brooke's romantic relationship was a bit lacking despite the fact that the story took place over two years.
I appreciated how, in the beginning, Higgins emphasized their friendship and how comfortable they were with each other. But, the romance aspect on Brooke's part especially seemed out of the blue and underdeveloped. I also thought the ending was abrupt and not very satisfying.
But, despite my dislike of Brooke and overall disappointment with the love story, I did find this story to be enjoyable. Ryan's voice and character is refreshing in the YA contemporary genre and really kept me interested.
The sports subplot also captured my attention and made it stand out from others in the genre. I do recommend this story, but I do it with some hesitation regarding Brooke's character and the development of the love story. I also have to mention that I loved seeing the excerpt from Higgin's next release, "Sweet Peril", sequel to the wonderful "Sweet Evil. Ryan is a sweetie, and I definitely felt for him as he pined away for Brooke.
I would have been his other female friend who kept telling him to forget about Brooke, but hey, the heart is strange. Please note: I use the star rating system of Goodre, which is different from Amazon. My overall rating is that I liked it. This was such a sweet read and the perfect story to snuggle down with and read in one sitting. I loved absolutely everything about it.
The fact that it was told through a male POV was the icing on the cake. For whatever reason, I thought this was going to be told from Brooke's point of view when I first started it not Ryan's. Having it told through Ryan's voice just made it all the better. I really really liked Ryan.
He had such an honest sweet voice that I don't think anyone would be able to read this and not instantly like him. He was sincere and a little shy and completely wonderful to Brooke. I really wanted him to win Brooke over and get all the happiness he deserved. Higgins did an excellent job with this.
I would say her first foray into the YA contemp world was a success. I'm always tense that the author will portray them as a "walking stiff". Sometimes authors get it wrong and sometimes they do it right, the last being the case of our main character, Ryan.
Ryan was portrayed beautifully in Wendy Higgins's Flirting with Maybe. The hormones are definitely there, but there are so much more about him and I bet that he'll will make you swoon over and over again. I can't wait to see what lies ahead for Wendy Higgins, she's such a talent writer and it's already on my auto-buy list. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries.

Brooke is a troubled teenager who has a very unhappy home life, whereas Ryan is the opposite despite living with just his mum and well as being a year younger than Brooke. Their friendship is solid but they both have their own uncertainties about their prospective future. The story is very well written and even though it's a novella, it is complete and does not feel as if it was rushed or lacking.
It is a quick and pleasant read, which I would recommend to YA romance Lovers. One person found this helpful. Je ne vais pas en dire plus car cela reste une nouvelle.
