Maybe This Time is book two in the brand new Colorado Ice series by Jennifer Snow. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by the author. I’ve been so excited to get started on this series and this book was everything I hoped it would be. I loved Jackson and Abby. They frustrated me, made me swoon a little bit, sigh a lot, and fall in love with them.


Abigail Jansen has been married for ten years to Dean, a famous hockey player. They started dating in high school
3.5 Stars

I am having an amazing year for finding new authors and now I can add Jennifer Snow to my list of must-read's. I really liked her take on the friends to lovers trop with the added tension of an almost enemies to lovers quality.

I enjoyed reading this story, and Jackson stole my heart with his sweet and sensitive nature. I loved how he was with Abby and they made a really cute couple. Abby was a strong character and I liked her throughout the whole book. Their relationship was captivatin
She came back home to heal when she divorced her hockey star husband. What she didn’t plan on was her young daughter wanting to follow in her father’s skates and play on a junior co-ed league. As if the constant reminder of hockey and her past wasn’t enough, the coach was her ex’s best friend and they mixed like oil and water.

Abigail and Jackson each had their own reasons for not getting along when she was dating her ex in high school. Little did Abby know Jackson had wanted her then and still w

★★★ 3.5 Stars ★★★

The start of a new series by Jennifer Snow, the blurb for this series hooked me in with the promise of a second chance romance between two childhood 'friends'.

Abigail was married for ten years to her high school sweetheart, and is back in her hometown after going through a painful divorce to NHL superstar Dean.

Her vow - to never ever get involved in anything Hockey related ever again.

Too bad her daughter wants to join the school's co-ed Ice Hockey team, because now not only is

The thing is that this book wasn't bad, it wasn't bad at all, there were just some minor details I wasn't completely in love with. I loved the writing style of the book though, it was easy to read and absolutely lovely written. The cozy Colorado-smalltown-atmosphere made me fall in love with this book instantly, and I really tried to love it more, but here's the thing. I couldn't really connect with the main character, Abby. Sometimes I felt with her distress and

One of the first things that drew me to wanting to read Maybe This Time was the cover, then of course the blurb, I might not be a fan of hockey but I love reading about hockey players. Jackson and Abby won my heart from the very beginning and this is one series I will be keeping my eye on.

Abigail Jansen has just moved back to Glenwood Falls after her divorce from a pro hockey player. She is trying to rebuild her life with her daughter and get back on her feet under the watchful eye of the inhabitants of the town she left years ago.

Maybe This Time is my first read by author Jennifer Snow, and now I have to ask myself why? Why did I wait so long to read one of her books? Jennifer Snow is a talented writer; her storytelling is absolutely fantastic. Snow has a way with romance that had me rooting and swooning for this handsome good guy, hockey player/coach, Jackson Westmore, to get the girl he has loved since high school, Abigail Jensen. And I loved every page of Jackson and Abigail's second chance romance.

Abby and Jackson are a wonderful friends to lovers romance. With a little twist. Jackson has been in love with Abby for years, and hiding it by avoiding her and trying to stay loyal to his best friend who was involved with Abby all through high school.

Abby, however, thinks Jackson dislikes her, so seeing him again, and discovering that her daughter is going to be on the hockey team he coaches, is not welcome news.

I enjoyed the development of their relationship. The tension between them in their

I loved Maybe This Time. It was a fun spin on a sports romance, and also a fun twist on the second chance romance trope that I haven't really seen play out this way before. It was sexy, romantic, and had the perfect amount of drama/angst. I loved that Jackson was alpha-light, because it meant there were moments that he was perfectly sensitive and introspective without falling into beta-land. I also thought the use of the children characters was really well done. They weren't delegated to backgro ...more

Dean has broken Abby's heart. She always thought they had something special, but now she's divorced and she and her daughter Dani are back in her hometown Glenwood Falls. Abby is done with hockey, but Dani has other plans, she wants to try out for her school's team, which is coed. The coach of the junior hockey team is Dean's best friend Jackson. He's always been hostile to Abby and she doesn't look forward to running into him on a regular basis. Was it really a good plan to move back to Glenwoo ...more

Overall, I really liked the book. Jackson frustrated and annoyed me for awhile but I think it was just because I liked him so much and wanted him to be happy. His behavior is probably typical of someone in his situation. He is trying to be a loyal friend but he also has an opportunity with the woman he has loved forever. I liked Abby. She was tough and she handled her ex well. I also liked how much of a part Becky played in the story. I wanted to know more about her life with Neil. I am hoping t ...more

I've never read Jennifer Snow before but after finishing this book I'm definitely going to be looking up her other books. There were a few things that bugged me about the story but the book was so cute that more than made up for those things.

Abby was a wonderful character who I fell in love with and I admired her spunk in making the best out of a horrible situation. Her character made me laugh and I definitely wanted her to get her happy ever after. Jackson was sweet but he was one of the little

A steamy second-chance romance!I love Jennifer's writing. The stories all move an a great pace, they are engaging and the characters have depth and a uniqueness that isn't always found with other authors. Jackson. My gosh. He was just absolutely perfect. But can you imagine? Having a crush on someone for all that time, and then bam! She's back in your life, every day...But THEN, he got ANOTHER second chance that I didn't see coming, and I was really rooting for him.Abby was put in a difficult p ...more

Maybe This Time, by Jennifer Snow, is a second chance love story. Abigail returns to her home town with her daughter to rebuild her life after divorcing her cheating, NHL player husband. The small town gossip is bad enough; seeing her ex-husband’s best friend Jackson Westmore, a man who never liked her, is worse. What she doesn’t know is Jackson’s had a crush on her forever. Now that she’s free, he’s rethinking his stance on staying away from his best friend’s (ex) girl and wondering if it’s fin ...more

I liked Maybe This Time so much better than the first book in this series! The pace was so much more bearable, and the ending was so much more satisfying this time around. I was a little dubious over the fact that Jackson has been in love with his best friend's girl, Abby, for at least a decade, because hello, boundaries. But once I was truly introduced to Abby's now ex-husband and Jackson's long-time best friend, Dean, I had no issue with Jackson and Abby getting together, and I truly liked the ...more

Jackson has had a crush on Abby since they were in the 2nd grade and now that she's home he needs to continue to keep the distance from her since you can't break the "guy code" and go for your best friends wife.

This was a really sweet book that captured my attention quickly, and kept it throughout. I really enjoy stories of second chances, and those featuring characters who come home to start their lives over. This book gave me all of that and more. Abigail was a great character! She was strong for her daughter and herself when she needed to be, but she also allowed her vulnerable side to show through when warranted. Jackson was a really fun character to get inside of.

Good read

Sexy, funny, serious. Our heroine moves back home with her young daughter in the midst of a high profile divorce. Our hero has loved her since grade school, but never declared that love. Is it their time? Or will life interfere. Highly recommend.

Who doesn't like hot guys in uniforms, playing rough sports and who fall hard for the ladies in their lives? Jennifer makes sure all of these requirements are met with her new series Colorado Ice.

The 'unrequited love from the hero' storyline has always been one of my favourites and this one was really sweet. I really liked how the hero was head over heels for the heroine and from the moment he made his move, he was committed to doing whatever he needed to do to make it work.
