In Maybe Someone Like You by Stacy Wise, when Katie Capwell decided to sign up kickboxing lessons, she never imagined her life would change for the better, especially since she and Ryan Brincatt are from totally different worlds. However, the more he teaches her, the more she finds herself falling for him. Will Katie and Ryan achieve their happy ever after or will the fact that they're too different keep them apart?
The first thing I noticed about this book was the cover. It looks like this story will be lots of fun and I've got to say that Ms. Wise delivers plenty of that in this book. The way this story started drew me in immediately, but it was from the moment the hero and heroine meet that had me fully invested in this story, as it's palpable they're from two totally different worlds in where she's just completed her law degree and he's a tattooed martial artist that didn't have the easiest of times in school.
As for the dialogue, it was entertaining due to the main characters back stories, the journey these two take on their way to happy ever after; and the blossoming relationship that had me hoping they'd finally realize they want each other, even though there's a good reason why the hero doesn't acted on his feelings. Moreover, the heroine is resilient, courageous and I liked the decisions she makes throughout this story to do with her career because she finally realizes what type of law she wants to pursue. I also liked the tight bond she has with her friends and that her best friend was looking out for her when it came to relationships. Is meeting Ryan fate, especially with his connection to her friends? While the hero, he's confident, hard-working and I liked how far he's come in his life. I also liked how encouraging he was when it came to instructing Katie, although she's fearless and determined to prove she has what it takes to learn the moves to the best of her ability. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero is the tight bond he shares with his niece. Really, they're so cute together.
Overall, Ms. Wise has delivered a really good read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was strong; the romance cute; and the ending had me loving how these two find their way back to each other after such a rollercoaster of will-they-or-won't-they become a couple. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up nicely because these two are so good together. I would recommend Maybe Someone Like You by Stacy Wise, if you enjoy the mysterious strangers trope, the friends to lovers trope, or books by authors Beth Anne Miller, Robin Bielman, RS Grey and Erin Fletcher.
