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 ca

Colleen Hoover surprised us with this novella, and in the best way! If you’ve read Maybe Someday, you know Warren. Warren was the most memorable and also my favorite character from that book. He’s like Daniel from Losing Hope. One of those side characters you just have to know more about. I am so thankful that CoHo decided to give us a little something from his perspective! His story with Bridgett.

Being in Warren’s head was a treat. He is just hilario

My thoughts in a nutshell
Awww, this was so cute and enjoyable read. Seriously, Colleen Hoover is the new adult genre's goddess!

What impressed me the most 😊
Coho is one of my favorite author in the romance genre. I would always get lost in her books. Colleen's writing style is so gripping and flawless.
I love Warren. He is an asshole but in a good way. In the beginning, Bridgette was a bitch but in the end, I liked her too.
Two years ago I read the first book -> Maybe Someday (Maybe, #1) by Colleen Hoover and I was afraid I lost all

“She’s nothing I’ve ever wanted… And absolutely everything I need.”

This was a fun, sexy surprise treat from Colleen Hoover giving fans of Maybe Someday a look into the love, pranks, and general hilarity of Warren’s life as he falls for the last girl he ever thought he could love.

While you can certainly read this spin-off novella on it’s own, I personally would highly recommend reading Maybe Someday first. Not only does that book tell a gorgeous, unique love story, but it’s also one o

We knew Warren and Bridgette from Maybe Someday, but here there are a lot of stuff that we didn't have many details.

Here we can learn a little more about Bridgette and her reasons for being the way she is, although I don't like it. Having a difficult life doesn't give you the right to pay it with people who are not to blame, but everyone faces problems differently.

We learned the reason for the addition of Warren to porn movies. It's a little funny. It's amazing Warren's tenacit

”She’s unexpected, and I like that.”


This novella is Warren and Bridgette’s story which takes place during the time period of Maybe Someday. Warren is Ryder’s funny roommate and Bridgette is the bitchy Hooter’s waitress who recently moved in.

Warren and Bridgette have fantastic banter and sexual chemistry…

”You probably fuck like a limp noodle.”

“I fuck like I’m Thor.”

Slowly Warren breaks through physically and then emotionally with Bridgette and the end result was very sexy a

I absolutely loved this little novella!!
When I read "Maybe Someday", I remember really loving Warren. Any guy who is gorgeous and also has an amazing sense of humor, is beyond sexy. I have to admit, I loved him a helluva lot more than Ridge's character.

"Maybe Not" is Warren and Bridgette's story. We never really got Bridgette's back story in the previous book, and in this one we learn she may have a possible connection to one of the roommate

Colleen Hoover is my "drop everything right now to read" author and even if I didn't love Ugly Love, my faith in this author never wavers.

This novella is a “Maybe Someday” spin-off and it brings us Warren and Bridgette story. I wanted to read his story since I met Warren so this was a nice surprise for me.
I loved the banter between them, how reluctant Bridgette was and how sweet Warren was trying to get her.
If you’re a fan of Colleen Hoover and if you loved “Maybe Someday”, this was endearing surprise that you shouldn't miss.

I can’t believe this story coexisted with that of the Maggie-Ridge-Sydney fever! While all the drama and heavy feels were happening, right next room was a totally adventurous, hilarious and maybe even better story about Warren and Bridgette…or Maybe Not. Let’s settle for just as good.^^

Why did I put myself through this?
I hated the first book with a vengeance and yet I still read this crap, why?
Why am I such an idiot??
Was there a story somewhere between all the insults and sex???
Like everyone in the book keeps telling, the heroine is truly a bitch and Warren is kinda dumb in a cute way, if you don't mind a guy who porn-stalks his roommate! Their constant bitching was less funny and more annoying. Would have gladly DNF'd this, had it been more than 100 pages.

For fans of Maybe Someday, Colleen gives us Maybe Not, a steamy little surprise. This novella is about Ridge's roommates, happy go lucky, porn watching, prankster Warren and the ice cold, hooters waitress, Bridgett.


This is a cute, fun, and surprisingly sexy little novella. I enjoyed being inside Warren's head and getting some insight into his relationship with Bridgett.

This was super cute!!!!!! I wasn't the biggest fan of Maybe Someday, but when I read so many positive reviews on this novella, I had to give it a shot and I'm glad I did! I ended up like it more than Maybe Someday.

Alright, so I totally and complete HATED everything which was Maybe Someday - - - - - EXCEPT Warren. Warren made me laugh. In real life I’d want to punch a “Stiffler” type of guy in the babymaker post haste, but in books/movies they tend to crack me up. I thought there was a solid chance I would enjoy Warren’s story. And maybe I would have . . . if there had been a story. There wasn’t a whole lot of substance

“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.”

This one was a bit of mix bag for me. On the one hand, I like the whole enemie-to-lovers premise, but it also felt too juvenile for my taste.

Major kudos for writing a hero who is totally gone for the heroine this time around though. Two of CoHo's latest books involved heroes who were hung up on other girls instead of the h

We met Bridgette and Warren in Maybe Someday and ever since we’ve got a glimpse of these two I’ve wanted their story. Ms. Hoover didn’t disappoint by providing her fans with this novella. Maybe Not parallels Maybe Someday so a lot of blanks are filled in on what was happening between Brid

First I have to say that I am not usually fan of novellas - almost every single one I've read so far was only there to fill time between book one and book two, or to remind people to buy "original" book. They don't bring anything new or fairly important, I end up cursing myself for even picking them up. This did not happen with this release.

No my friends you are not seeing things. Yes I loved it. Yes this is in fact another 5 star read from me. Shocking I know!!!

Apart from it being short there really wasn't anything I didn't like. I loved that Bridgette was a bitch. I loved how stalkerish and obsessed Warren became. The sexy time was awesome and it was just a cute fun face-grinning dramaless novella that filled in all the gaps left behind in Maybe someday.

Recommend to readers: who have read Maybe Someday.
★★★★4 Stars★★★★

A brilliant addition to Maybe Someday, this is the novella of what happened between the hilarious Warren and the mega bitch, Bridgette.

A Love/Hate relationship - one of my favourites, and it was funny and cute and had all the great CoHo elements.

Flipping great! You won't be disappointed.

This novella about Warren and Bridgette is just really sweet. I know, I doesn't really seem like it since they both pretend to pretty much hate each other but it's not like that at all.

Warren sees something in Bridgette right from the beginning. Sure he has a "thing" for mean girls but it's something more, not insta-love, just a desire to get to know the real Bridgette. It certainly helps that we get his POV.

And it doesn't help that we don't get Bridgette's. We never really know

I started Maybe Not the day after I finished Maybe Someday so everything was still really fresh in my mind. I thought that wouldn't work in my favor, that maybe I would get bored. However, I think it worked out great. I didn't know what Maybe Not was about before I started it. I thought it might be about Sydney before she met Ridge but it actually takes place at the same time as Maybe Someday and it's in the perspective of Warren. I loved Warren so I was really excited that Maybe Not was about h ...more


Warren and Bridgette were an awesome couple.

'Maybe Not' is fab little novella that packs a punch. It's got a hero who's immature, funny, dry.... and actually kinda sexy and romantic too. Told from entirely Warrens POV we get to see how the behind the scenes couple got together.

I LOVED this couple together.

It has pranks, love/hate, funny one-liners, streamy scenes and strong characters.

What more could i want........?

Oh yeah... more pages.


Gonna miss them.
