"This sweet new adult book is sure to leave you with a smile on your face.” –USA Today bestselling author Cindi Madsen
Katie Capwell is a bright and accomplished recent law school graduate, and she has her shiny future all mapped out. It's brimming with courtroom victories and creating change. Ryan Brincatt is a tattooed and impossibly cool martial artist, and he’s mastered a fierce roundhouse kick.
Their paths never should have crossed.
But when Katie lurks outside the kickboxing gym where Ryan works as a trainer, she’s immediately drawn to his casual confidence and playful green eyes. Without making her usual list of pros and cons, she impulsively signs up to train with him.
She never imagined that one decision would change. Absolutely. Everything.
My first book from Stacy Wise and it most definitely won’t be my last!! “Maybe Someone Like you” was brilliantly done and so addictive! The Romance was a slow burn in the best possible way and perfectly done with the most amazing characters. Katie and Ryan were fated from the very beginning and I adored how their friendship blossoms throughout the book.
About the story:
Katie’s recently graduated law school which should be something to celebrate, but that’s not the case for her at the moment. The job offer she had lined up fell through after a recent merger and to top it off her boyfriend dumps her to be single for a the season? Did I mention he’s a TOOL!? Any- who In attempt to help cheer Katie up Lauren (her roommate) invites her to a yoga class. On the way Katie ends ups lingering outside a kickboxing class that peeks her interest, bumping into Ryan. A HOTT trainer who offers her a one on one trial session. Ryan *swoon* is a hot, tattooed trainer - who by the way is the complete opposite of her ex and could very well be her perfect match. Taking a leap Katie decides to sign up for classes with Ryan as her trainer. After class things slowly start to look up when she decides to takes the help from her mother for a job interview at a well known Firm.
I really enjoyed Katie and her perspective way of thinking. She’s smart, honest, determined, hardworking and at times unsure of herself in Romantic situations. Katie slowly goes from being somewhat of a meek mouse to force of nature during her sessions with Ryan, the two connect easily, but his mixed signals have her flustered and unsure romantically. With both of them from completely different worlds Katie is convinced it’s all in her head.
Did I mention that Ryan’s a dream!! He’s charming, sweet, tough and protective, and not at all what Katie expects. He’s multi layered with ambitious of his own and a genuine good person, not at all the “player” she assumes. Ryan pushes Katie to her limits during her sessions and they work together flawlessly, with the tension between them slowly building into something neither of them can ignore.
Overall I really adored how Katie and Ryan’s relationship blossoms, while not drawing away from Katie’s growth as an adult. Katie’s ambitious, driven with a big heart trying to do her best to please her mom ideals without losing sight of her Grans advice for life passions, and working hard to make decisions that would’ve made her dad proud. Overall a wonderful story about self discovery and falling in love.
