Some guys are impossible to forget.

Rachel Daughtry has a 10-year plan that leaves no room for mistakes. Or not-so-serious boys—including Oliver Wentworth, the freshman boyfriend she's never forgotten. Now she's back in San Francisco with an awesome-slash-scary new job. Unfortunately, The Plan doesn't cover things like meeting her best friend's new “secret” guy...Oliver.

They date most of their freshman year, but end up breaking up when her grades begin to spiral out of control. Rachel knows that Oliver isn’t the problem, that it

I absolutely adored London's modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice when she wrote Definitely, Maybe In Love so there was no way I was going to pass up the chance to not only get another dose of her great writing but also to get another modern twist of my second most favorite Austen's tale, Persuasion.

I so was not wrong to pick this up, I loved it from the very beginning and how could I not love Spring and Henry's cameo! Yay!

Persuasion never seems to get the amount of love P+P does and that's a shame because it's an amazing story. This modern retelling of sorts was absolute perfection.

Rachel was a good MC. Yeah, she's got some issues, but who doesn't. Love love love Oliver {surprise, surprise}. He's deliciously swoony and so adorable. Sarah was also an excellent character. She really came across as vibrant. I didn't care much for Meghan -- but she was a perfect representation for Louisa.

Rachel and Oliver had a secret relationship freshman year of college. Oliver didn't fit into her 10 year plan so she ends things between them. Fast forward 6 years when she moves back to San Francisco and gets to meet her best friends new boyfriend. This was a really sweet second chance romance. I loved Oliver - he was such a sweetheart. I really liked the dynamics with all the friends. There were a few small things that I didn't like about this book but I can't leave that in the review because ...more

My thoughts: After falling in love with London's Pride and Prejudice adaptation, Definitely Maybe in Love , the moment that I heard she has another Austen adaptation coming out, I signed up! I'm hesitant to say that I enjoyed this more than Definitely Maybe, because I loved it so much, but it's close! This is the second in the "series" but it can definitely be read as a "standalone" novel.

Maybe it's because I'm not as familiar with Jane Austen's Persuasion (the Austen book that Someday Maybe is

Review by Nicole Lorenzo

Rachel Daughtry has had a fear of the unknown since she was a young girl. This is why she makes her ten year plan that she refuses to stray from. Her future is too important to get distracted by boys and parties in college. But When Oliver Wentworth walks into her life all bets are off. Rachel finds herself falling hard and fast for Oliver and his easy going charming ways. For eight months they spend every possible minute together keeping their relationship quiet

This reunited lovers romance is the story of Rachel and Oliver. Secretly involved in college, Oliver doesn't fit into Rachel's 10 year plan and when she breaks things off with him, it seems like the right thing to do to get things back on track. Only, she hasn't gotten over him, and when she returns to her home town, Oliver is there, now dating her best friend who never knew of their relationship before. Suddenly Rachel has to choose between letting Oliver go completely or admitting that she's n ...more

This is a really great story with tons of twists and turns. The pace of the story was a bit slow but the writing was great and the characters were fantastic. I loved Oliver from the start, Rachel took a while to grow on me with her insecurities and expectations. The secondary characters where hilarious and the humor made the book for me. This is one I highly recommend.

Thought I would try a fluffy Persuasion retelling for my pandemic relaxation read. Alas, this is just a mediocre second chance romance for the New Adult crowd with a few trappings of Persuasion's main plot points. Rejecting your true love because your family convinces you is not the same at all as agreeing with your smart big brother that your aimless surfer boyfriend who you skip class to make out with is a bad influence on you and that you should break up with him before you fail out of colleg ...more

After having read and enjoyed London's Definitely Maybe, which is a Pride and Prejudice retelling, I knew I had to read Someday Maybe! I haven't yet read Jane Austen's Persuasion, so I wasn't able to compare the two, but I am all about second chance romances! London has such a fun, cute writing style so her books are not only easy to read, but they are pretty fast paced as well. I did feel this one went a little TOO fast. Some of the transitioning seemed a bit abrupt and at times I fe

Being a fan of Jane Austen I've been drawn to this series at each release. I enjoyed her take on Pride and Prejudice with the first book in this series Definitely Maybe in Love and so with Persuasion being one of my all time favorite Jane Austen novels Someday Maybe was a no-brainer for me.

I love this cover as it looks like it's a romantic scene and after reading the book I can even picture one of the scenes that this could be taken from. I like that it's similar to the first book but with it being about differen

So first off books like Someday, Maybe totally stress me out! Don’t worry it’s not a bad thing. I love Ophelia London’s writing and her way of investing me in the characters right away. So I’m stressed because I want things to work out for the characters right away. Of course that wouldn’t be much of a story.

Rachel is a very interesting character. It bothered me that she was letting her brother, Roger, have such an influence on her life. I have three older brothers and I can tell if any of them

I think most of us have had 'the one who got away' at one point or another in our lives. I have - still remember him occasionally - and so the synopsis of this book really appealed to me. Plus the cover was awesome. I was really excited to start this novel and I was extremely glad I did.

I was extremely worried about the fact Rachel meets Oliver again after so long while he is dating her best friend, but I was so ecstatic that Ophelia London handled that sooo well that I have no cause for compla

This is London's second book in the Definitely, Maybe series. You do not need to read the first book as this is a stand alone. Rachel was a planner due to the difficulties her family faced when she was younger. Nothing was going to stand in the way of her 10 year plan for success, not even Oliver, the young boy who stole her heart in her first year of college. Making some poor choices and not wanting anyone to know they were dating affected Rachel and even though she felt very stron

I read Someday Maybe, by Ophelia London, because the premise appealed to me. I didn’t realize it was a modern take on Persuasion, by Jane Austen, until after I’d already finished it. It’s probably a good thing for me, because I didn’t spend the story comparing and contrasting Austen’s characters with London’s. For me, this was the perfect book at the perfect time, emotionally charged but not overly dramatic, strong character connections and tons of chemistry but absolutely believable circumstanc ...more

4 stars

Are you where you thought you'd be 10 years ago? Did you have a "plan" for your life?

Rachel did. And no where in that plan does she have room for a boyfriend. She's focusing only on school and her future. She didn't have to worry so much before but now because of the economy she does. So no boys, no parties, no fun. Until she felt the strongest pull ever to a guy she's never met.

Oliver and she meet at the cafeteria And all of a sudden they're inseparable. Wel

This was my first time reading Ophelia London and I must say I definitely enjoyed this book.

It centers around Rachel and Oliver, sole mate who found each other before they were meant too. I seriously loved the flashbacks of Rachel and Oliver their freshman year of college, they were probably my favorite part of the entire book, Oh and Bruce the Moron.

Years later the two run into each other when Oliver starts dating Rachel's best friend .. awkward. There's definitely some OMG awkwa

This is the first time I have read a book by Ophelia London. I liked her writing style. I was really looking forward to this book.

Now I don't think this book was bad or great I give it a 3.5 stars. I just felt the last 20% took way longe. I was hooked on this book as soon as I started. I ended up reading it straight Thur. I felt for Rachel. Wanting and not wanting someone for different reason. I also liked that secondary romance. I think it help the story, so in the end Rachel was more likable.

When I started Someday Maybe I was hoping it was going to be great like Definitely, Maybe in Love, but not the same. I wanted same fun story, but not a replica, and it wasn't at all! Oliver and Rachel's relationship was fantastic, heartbreaking, and a great reminder that true love knows no time. I admit, it was a little hard to read the flashbacks knowing, that at the beginning of the book, these two were not together. Ophelia did a great job at using those flashbacks to set the stage, and demon ...more

Oliver and Rachel had an eight month relationship during freshman year in college. How was she to balance an all-consuming relationship and an 18 credit semester? She couldn't and her grades started to decline. She couldn't risk losing her scholarship so she decided to break up with Oliver and gave him no real answer as to why she was breaking the heart of the boy she loved so much. Now, it's seven years later and they meet again but this time he's dating her best friend.

Someday Maybe is all about second chances, Rachel Daughtry and Oliver Wentworth dated Rachel’s freshman year at college. They were both head over heels in love with each other, but Oliver didn’t fit into Rachel’s 10 year plan, so she broke things off. Now it is almost seven years later and Rachel is back in San Francisco and finds out her best friend is dating Oliver! Leaving Rachel to figure out her feeling for Oliver and if/how she should tell her friend about their past.

Someday Maybe is a beautiful heartwarming read, I really enjoyed it.

I love second chance love stories, I enjoyed seeing Rachel and Oliver slowly reconnect and acknowledge the love they once shared was still there and that they were perfect for each other.
Sigh... so many happy feels =)

Ophelia London is on my faves/must read authors list and once again she has given us readers a beautiful and heartwarming love story, the characters were likable and you could relate to them.

This was a really sweet second chance story. From the start, Oliver and Rachel had chemistry. Everything about them was special. From their first kiss, to their reunion, to every other encounter they had that led to the end of our story and their HEA :) This was the kind of book that grabs you from the very beginning and you just can't put it down because you MUST know what happens next!

I really enjoyed this book. It is a retelling of Jane Austen's persuasion with a nice twist. Even though her family isn't thrilled with the guy its really more about the girl persuading herself that she can't be with the guy. The setting is San Francisco and both characters are early in their careers with strong friendships. The book is pretty short so there isn't a lot of character development. Even though the book is new adult its a PG13 read! ...more

Several years after the relationship and breakup that almost derailed her life, Rachel meets up again with Oliver.

This was a wonderful read. I did not read the first book in the series (and didn't really want to) but as I saw the books were about different characters I didn't think it was necessary; and it wasn't. This book was a warm, fun and cozy read that I absolutely adored.

A super addictive modern retelling of Persuasion. Since I haven't read Persuasion, I didn't know what to expect. Although I found some of the drama unnecessary, I was still glued to this book. Cute NA read and Oliver was definitely swoon-worthy, always a plus. ...more
