Review: More Than Maybe by Erin Hahn

Posted on

Growing up under his punk rocker dad’s spotlight, eighteen-year-old Luke Greenly knows fame and wants nothing to do with it. His real love isn’t in front of a crowd, it’s on the page. Hiding his gift and secretly hoarding songs in his bedroom at night, he prefers the anonymous comfort of the locally popular podcast he co-hosts with his outgoing and meddling, far-too-jealousy-inspiringly-happy-with-his-long-term-boyfriend twin brother, Cullen. But that’s not Luke’s only secret. He also has a major un-requited crush on music blogger, Vada Carsewell.

Vada’s got a five year plan: secure a job at the Loud Lizard to learn from local legend (and her mom’s boyfriend) Phil Josephs (check), take over Phil’s music blog (double check), get accepted into Berkeley’s prestigious music journalism program (check, check, check), manage Ann Arbor’s summer concert series and secure a Rolling Stone internship. Luke Greenly is most definitely NOT on the list. So what if his self-deprecating charm and out-of-this-world music knowledge makes her dizzy? Or his brother just released a bootleg recording of Luke singing about some mystery girl on their podcast and she really, really wishes it was her?

In More Than Maybe, Erin Hahn’s swooniest book yet, Luke and Vada must decide how deep their feelings run and what it would mean to give love a try.

MY REVIEW

I fell in love with Erin Hahn’s writing when I read her debut novel You’d Be Mine. So, when I heard that More Than Maybe was coming out, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and see what Erin Hahn brought to us in her Sophomore novel. And let me tell you, I was not disappointed. More Than Maybe is a sweet and swoon-worthy young adult novel. I found this story easy to connect with. I was reminded of simpler times and the sweetness of young love.

Erin Hahn gave us addictive writing and amazing characters in More Than Maybe. Yes, Luke and Vada had some insta-love going on, but it totally worked. You could feel the connection between the two of them and it was clear as day that these two were destined for one another.

I really enjoyed More Than Maybe and I loved getting swept up in the story this author created. It was fun. It was sweet. It was swoon-worthy. I just loved the music and the refreshing story-line. If you’re looking for a light-hearted young adult romance, then look no further. I hope you’ll check out More Than Maybe and that you will fall in love with these characters just as I have.
