  • Wonderful

    This was a great read. There is a sweet romance that develops after starting out as a fling. It's been a year since Alexis lost her fiance Nate and while she wants to move on and start over it's been hard. Now she's back from Italy and has a new job lined up that will start in a couple of months. To pass the time she's working at Stag Distillery. Hitting the road with Stag's resident playboy Jake Cooper wasn't how she expected to spend her time but being with Jake and experiencing life again may be exactly what she needs. This is a wonderfully done story and I loved watching how both Jake and Alexis change through their journey. I highly recommend this one.

  • Very sweet, lots of heart

    With her latest novel, Maybe for You (Whiskey and Weddings #3), author Nicole McLaughlin has done it again. I have read many of her books, although none of her series necessarily in order, but they are all great standalones with smooth, believable storylines and plots, and well-developed characters that you can’t help but love. Alexis Parker has just lost her fiancé and is now trying to find meaning in life, a life that will be nothing like the one she had planned. She spends a little time at her brother’s distillery and connects as a friend with one of his partners, Jake Cooperon. Then the story moves forward a year. This is a perfect plot device. A year seems like a long time except for this story we don’t care about all the details of Alex’s final military assignment, we just know that a year is long enough after losing her finance Nathan to maybe move on. Nathan’s memory will always be precious and treasured but it’s okay to keep those memories while making new ones. And now we wonder if some of those new memories might be with Jake. Jake was Alex’s best friend while she was gone the past year. They kept in touch via email and social media and she poured out her heart to him. It felt safe because they were “just friends.” Now she’s back and she wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize that friendship, even though she does feel a strong attraction to Jake that she hadn’t realized was there. Jake also values their friendship and would never hurt Alex, but he’s starting to feel little vibes as well. They partner on a Stag Distillery cross-country promotional tour and the fun begins. Jake has a reputation as a playboy that he is trying to shake. Alex has never been one for one-night stands. But can they resist? And what exactly would that mean? Are they ready for more than a fling? This is a sweet, sweet story that I did not want to end. Alex is afraid of losing more people in her life that she loves and resists becoming close. Jake has always felt that he disappointed those he cared about, didn’t measure up, and has held back. But their tender feelings for one another are so obvious you want to just push them together and say “There!” The plot moves along smoothly with some fun and exciting twists and turns and a very pleasant surprise at the end. I was provided a copy of Maybe for You from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it and all of Nicole McLaughlin’s books.

  • Contemporary Romance

    Maybe For You by Nicole McLaughlin Whiskey and Weddings #3 Alexis “Alex” Parker had her future in front of her. She and Nate would spend their last year in the military in Italy as a married couple but…that did not happen. Instead, before the wedding took place Nate died and Alex headed off to Italy alone. During that year while she was in Italy she messaged time and again with her brother’s friend Jake. Jake listened and was there for her and the two became friends. Sure, Jake is known as a playboy who will never settle down but on the other hand Alex is not sure she ever wants to put her heart on the line again either. When Alex comes home she is met by Jake at the airport, he takes her to see her brother and that is that…right? Well, Alex is a bit bored with time on her hands till her new job begins in a few months so she asks to go on tour with Jake…a tour that will promote the whiskey Stag distillery produces. Many venues will be visited, many people will be met and much time on the road will be spent…time that sees Alexis and Jake talking and sharing and caring in new ways. But, as Alex is leaving and Jake is a playboy what happens on the road stays a secret of the road…right? Well, perhaps not. No matter how careful one is sometimes secrets are exposed in a rather surprising way. This is a friends to lovers genre story with HEA for the couple that left me wondering if the two ever do marry but even if they don’t they end up together and seem to have a good relationship once Alex is willing to open her heart to love again. It felt realistic and possible and true for the most part although I am not sure how close one would be to the family of one’s deceased fiancé in the long run. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4.5 Stars

  • Maybe For You

    ARC for honest review with no compensation given by NetGalley and St. Martin's Press. 4.5 stars This is book 3 of the Whiskey and Wedding series while a standalone I understood the flow from the prior books even though I have not read them.. I will most definitely be checking them out! Jake is a partner in the Stag Distillery with his two best friends. He is the "Promo Guy" and playboy extraordinaire. A complaint has been lodged against him so it's decided that on the next promo tour he take Alexis along to keep him out of trouble. Little does he know that this may not be the way to make that happen... Alexis has finally returned home from the military, while also spending the past year mourning the loss of her fiancé who just weeks before their wedding was killed. She now needs to pick up the pieces and find her direction in life. Her brother and part owner of Stag Distillery offers her a job and she agrees to do the ride along with Jake as they have been pen pals during the past year and there's more to Jake than meets the eye. What starts out as friends turns quickly as the heat rises, friends become lovers and when you least expect it love shows us what has been missing all along!

  • great read

    Any kind of loss can be devastating but when it's not the first time and both of the losses are close to you it can have far reaching tendrils that suddenly become a fear deep and dark. It's not bad enough that you lost your parents and now lost your fiance just weeks before you marry but now you're so afraid of loosing someone else that you protect your heart. That's where Alex is. That's where she thinks she's happy. Jake is a playboy who is getting tired of the life but no woman has given him the reason to until he consoles Alex. The message was harmless until it became everything. These two have no idea where this will lead. They will have some troubles but their biggest trouble will be fear. Fear can be crippling. This isn't my first read by this author and once again she doesn't disappoint. Yeah there's some steamy goodness but the story of these two and the strength of Alex is such an emotional journey. I love how the story evolves and the healing and support from friends and family. It's a great read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
