Maybe Yes (Maybe Series #1) By Ella Miles
I took longer than usual to review this book because I was not aware that it was a continued series. I was sent an email by the author to check out the series and I was happy to be given the recommendation.
The complete box set is currently free and you can check it out on Amazon Unlimited
I can’t give a break down of the storyline without giving way any spoiler so I’ll share the blurb which comes with the book, then I’ll do my review and individually rate each book.
Her future is already set, all she has to do is marry a complete stranger.
Kinsley Felton has everything. Money, a loving family, and a modeling career. She graduates from Yale in just days, but unlike a typical college student she doesn’t have to spend hours looking for a job when she graduates. Kinsley will inherit the multi-billion dollar gaming and hospitality company her great-grandfather started. The only problem is she has to do everything her family asks for in order to get that money. That includes marrying a man of her family’s choosing. That’s not a problem since Kinsley has been following her family’s orders all her life. Until a phone call from her grandfather changes everything.
Will she marry the man her family chooses or will she decide her own future?
The heroine to me needs to grow a pair. She was a doormat for everyone and she was okay with this. I hated that she did not voice how she felt and had no decision on what her future should be.
I find myself wanting to bash her had into my iPad and scream at her to stand up for herself and show everyone how wrong they are. I find it unbelievable that for a 21 year old she could not even order her own food. Like who don’t know what to get when they are at a restaurant.
And who the hell goes to Yale to study theater?
If I had parents like hers especially a grandfather like that I would’ve said to hell with the money and walk away. No one believed in her potential and verbally abuse her strength and self esteem.
The hero, for some reason was the best character in this book. Although he doesn’t make himself aware that he is the one she would eventually have to marry when they first met, I can of understand why he did I it. And I loved that he didn’t force himself on her and waited till she knew who he really was before sleeping with her.
An boy was that a cliffhanger or what? I found myself reading this book till 5 in the morning and recommend it to others.
Maybe Never (Maybe Series #2) By Ella Miles
Will one mistake destroy her life? Will one secret? One lie?
Kinsley Felton thought she had found a solution to her problems. She thought she had convinced her family that she is strong enough to run the company, if not on her own, then with help. She thought she had won when she decided not to marry Killian and instead just date him. But everything she thought was wrong.
Killian isn’t who she thought he was. Now she is sitting in a jail cell for something she didn’t do because of him. But maybe she deserves to sit in jail anyway to pay for her past mistakes. All she knows is she needs to stay far away from Killian no matter how much her heart aches for him.
Will Kinsley let herself get lost in the deceit or will she save herself and take another chance at love?
So after recovering from that really unexpected cliffhanger I can honestly say that I get to hate the hero and fell sorry for the heroine.
I love how the author put that twist in the book that I don’t think anyone saw coming. I honestly thought that the hero would have taken advantage of the heroine in some sort of business deal but not that.
I love that you can see the heroine kinda growing a pair and standing up for herself. Although she been through so much with her family, she still refused to see the bad in them and her family should be lucky to have that kind of loyalty.
At half way through this book I fell in love again with the hero and loved that he fough for the heroine although they are totally on the opposite side of the law.
I felt that throughout this book the FBI only seemed to be after the heroine whether or not she was guilty. It made me wonder if this happens in real life.
And then there is a cliffhanger at the ending of this book but it was not as big as the previous one and was expected.
Maybe Always (Maybe Series #3) By Ella Miles
Will one truth set her free?
Kinsley thought she had found the truth, but she is only beginning to discover the real truth about her family. About herself. Her heart and body still yearn for Killian, but she has to keep him safe. The only way to do that is to lie, just like everyone has lied to her.
Killian thought he had everything he ever wanted. He had the perfect girl. He had the perfect job. All that was missing was a ring on her finger. But now both are gone. And the only way to get either of them back is to choose between the girl he loves and the job he feels destined to do. But as he sits in a jail cell he doesn’t know how he will get either of them back.
Will Kinsley be strong enough to save herself and those she loves? If so, at what cost?
This final book of the series, the heroine finally grew a steel backbone and took nothing from anyone. She stood up or herself and the hero, though she went around the wrong way doing it, she still showed strength.
I found some parts hard to believe and felt it was kind of rushed to finish.
I don’t think jail is that easy to break out and there was a scene with the hero and the heroine involving whips, not believable at all.
Talking about whips, there was also a scene where the heroine was put to whip a traitor and she took pleasure in it *yuck*
I felt the ending was missing a big part and had a lot of unanswered questions.
