Tell Me About It
Colleen Hoover, the New York Times bestselling author of Maybe Someday, brilliantly brings to life the story of the wonderfully hilarious and charismatic Warren in a new novella, Maybe Not.
When Warren has the opportunity to live with a female roommate, he instantly agrees. It could be an exciting change.
Or maybe not.
Especially when that roommate is the cold and seemingly calculating Bridgette. Tensions run high and tempers flare as the two can hardly stand to be in the same room together. But Warren has a theory about Bridgette: anyone who can hate with that much passion should also have the capability to love with that much passion. And he wants to be the one to test this theory.
Will Bridgette find it in herself to warm her heart to Warren and finally learn to love?
Maybe.
Maybe not.
My Thoughts
I LOVED Maybe Someday, so when I found out about Maybe Not I knew I had to read it, getting to see inside Warren and Bridgette's mind and what really makes them tick is a book you don't turn down. My review will be small, and quick, I have literally just sped through the pages to get to the end and see their whole story.

Warren
I loved him in Maybe Someday, I loved his pranks, his undeniable loyalty towards Ridge, and his love/hate relationship with Bridgette. Warren is the prankster, the joker, and only really comes across as a serious person when it involves band business, so getting to see in his mind and how he really thinks really changed my mind about how I pictured him. Warren is honest, and determined to get his way, and I love how he is there for Bridgette and doesn't shy away when he learns about her past.

Bridgette
I honestly didn't really like her much in Maybe Someday, but I was interested in seeing why she acts the way she does, why she is so bitchy and cranky toward others, and most importantly why she constantly pushed Warren away. As we delve into her past, we get to see why she is who she is, and my heart broke for her, going through what she has done has got to be tough on anyone, and she only gives off the emotions she has had to deal with herself. With no-one to love her how can she really show how she loves, or even cares, for anther person.

Colleen Hoover really knows how to keep on surprising you. Maybe Not was a short read but does not lack on quality. I thought I knew every aspect of Maybe Someday, but with Maybe Not we are shown a new angle on certain things, one of them is Bridgette's reason for becoming a roommate, but the other is a prank played on someone else.....I'll let you find out who and what it is, and I'll also leave you with this little quote.
“The only difference between falling in love and being in love is that your heart already knows how you feel, but your mind is too stubborn to admit it.”
