Oh this book started very fun and flirty then turned into an angst riddled ball of yum. Fun and likable characters that started off as besties then turn into more than friends with an extra character thrown in to make it a bit of a triangle, well......yes please. A bit of too many troupes, but hey, they Check all of my required boxes.
Characters and storyline were very well written and quite enjoyable. Easton and Brynn are why this story makes sense

This was such a enjoyable and fun read. I thought it was super easy to fall for these characters. The book offers such a wonderful storyline that pulls you in and keeps you fully invested. Easton and Brynn are cute, sweet and relatable, but also often frustrating. You get a good dose of angst as these two longtime friends struggle to finally open their minds (and hearts) to what has been right in front of them all along and take a chance on love. This is my freely posted, frank review.

"Every moment after this won't matter, Brynn."

As per the usual, Cassie Graham came along with her carefree and fun writing style and sucked me in from the get go. I never have to question whether or not I will have immense amounts of fun when I pick up one of her books and Maybe Ever After was no different.

First- I wanted to touch on my favorite parts about this book. Easton is number one on that list. Easton was the type of male character I am always searching for in books. He was masculine, su

Maybe Ever After is a perfect mash up of a nerdy convention meets real life. Having actually attended a few conventions in my life, I loved seeing behind the closed doors of the UnNatural convention. It was a very fun setting to put these characters into, so different and it made my nerdy heart so happy! Brynn and Easton both have very interesting jobs and it makes for some very interesting situations for them to be placed in. I really enjoyed this whole aspect of the story!

This was a fantastic best friends romance. I love how quirky and dorky Brynn is, and how unsure she is around Easton. She's been in love with him for as long as she can remember, and is sure that he does not feel the same way. After all, he's not just her best friend, but that of her twin brother as well. And they both work together at a fan convention company.

Easton, meanwhile, has been in love with Brynn from the moment he laid eyes on her when they were kids. After several charged moments, ev

Any lovers out there of friends to lovers stories, prepare to fall in love with this novel! Brynn and Easton have known each other since they were kids, work together promoting celebrity events, and, yeah, they have both been secretly in love with each forever, but they haven’t told each other. Maybe it’s an impromptu road trip or maybe it’s the threat of another guy entering the picture, but suddenly things change and these two best friends have to figure out what exactly to do with it all.

WOW! This book was refreshing for me because it wasn't your typical romance type book setting.

Brynn & Easton have been besties for life, along with her twin brother (whose name escapes me at the moment, but that isn't needed for the review, so on I go). They grew up together and have been close for years! All three live in California now, in the same building, and are still super close.

A fun addition to this story is what Brynn & Easton do - they work for a company that puts on conventio

After reading some very angsty books, Maybe Ever After was such refreshing read! It was a light and fun romance! Besties since they were young, Brynn and Easton finally wake up to how they are really feeling about each other. Friends to lovers is one of my favorite tropes in the romance book world! Cassie did not disappoint with these characters! Brynn was funny and nerdy in such a likeable real way. She could easily be someone I’d hang out with. Easton was the best friend every girl wants.

First I want to say that this book has all the tropes that I adore. A love triangle, friends to lovers, brother's best friend.... So I was anxious to jump into this story. I really enjoyed the fact that the main characters are quirky nerds. <3 And the friendship that Brynn and Easton have, anyone would be jealous. They've been friends since they were kids and they GET each other. Turns out that both of them want more from the friendship... and this is how the story starts for us.

What an adorable story. When I first started reading it, I could not stop grinning! This plot was not what I expected and it certainly had me on the edge of my seat on several occasions.

This HEA had me talking out loud to the characters and even found myself wondering if it would end the way I felt it should.

I seriously enjoyed the pop culture references and the character development. Brynn and Easton's story is not like the others and the way that they come together has all the feels. They are

Wow what can I say about this story, it was beautiful and heartbreaking and soulful.

Easton and brynn, I loved this story.

Loving someone forever is a common thing now days but loving someone FOR ever is completely different, this story will warm your soul.

Earth shattering, to the core love comes only once in a lifetime and when it does you have to grab on and hold right because it doesn't come without its challenges.

So, I’ve decided that Cassie Graham is the QUEEN of writing good guys with good hearts. And, Maybe Ever After is no exception to that statement.

This original take on my favorite trope brings together Brynn Darling and Easton Cole - two lifelong BFF’s with some serious ties (and pent up sexual tension) keeping them together. The story within the pages of Maybe Ever After is a testament to the age old, “if it’s meant to be, it will be” saying.

All the angst! These characters drove me absolutely crazy in the best possible way!
Easton and Brynn have known each other their whole lives and fell for each other long ago. Their journey to each other is interrupted by a brother, a famous hottie, and their own fear.

Easton and Brynn are so very Cassie Graham’s characters always are. But these two, along with their supporting characters, could easily be my friends and neighbors. They let their nerd flags fly and connect with so many of

When the going gets tough they have each others back, but are they ready for something more? When best friends become a heart's desire are when the lines between heart and head become more than a little blurred. Maybe Ever After is the road less traveled. Brynn and Easton know the risks, yet still hunger for more. Graham stirs up the obvious emotions with a friends to lovers romance. If not a romantic this sentimental roller-coaster ride will make a believer out of you.

I really enjoyed this friends to lovers story. I loved Byrnn's quirkiness and nerdy side. I liked the goofy side of the characters. Brynn and Easton are keeping their true feelings a secret and it may just cost them their friendship. Their friendship will be tested. Great characters that instantly pulled me into the story. This book had a lot of heart and feels along with humor. It's definitely one you don't want to pass up.

This is a new author to me, and I will certainly be looking out for her work in the future. Brynn and Easton as best friends, as well as Easton being her brothers’ best friend as well. These two are in denial about their feeling for each other, and when Brynn meets an actor, Easton has to face up to his feeling very quickly. I felt like shaking Brynn at times to get her to see what was right in front of her nose. No spoilers though; this is a must read, you will not be disappointed. This is a we ...more

Easton and Brynn are friends. Easton is also friends with Brynn's brother. They spend a lot of time together. Brynn denies she feelings for Easton, and he does the same about her. Brynn meets someone new and Easton realizes he needs to tell Brynn his true feelings. I am amazed that Brynn never realized what an awesome guy Easton is and that deep down he had feelings for her. He is such a nice guy, and she should have seen that from the beginning. So much drama and ups and downs in this story. R ...more

This book is such a fantastic read! The characters are developed, likeable, and relatable. The plot is fun with serious undertones. The writing was great and kept me wanting more. I could've read this book in one sitting if I'd had the chance. This was my first read from this author and I'm hooked! You will definitely not be disappointed!

I loved the story line and the uniqueness of the characters. If you like any fandoms and cons this is definitely the book for you. I love when an author incorporates things they truly love into their books.
The chemistry between Brynn and Easton is totally evident. After reading about Easton's past I really don't blame him for trying to live on the safe side of things. Brynn is my spirit soul with her love of BBQ sauce and chicken. I love her personality and who she is. I was on the edge of my ki

So, I loved the Comic-Con aspect to this story so much! Now, names were changed, but basically they were doing conventions for a tv show a lot like one of my favorites, Supernatural. Only in this world, the obvious play on my favorite actor on the show, Jensen Ackles, is single. And he's into our main character Brynn. Like, seriously interested! But I got so mad at Easton. He honestly was being stupid in how he acted toward Brynn. Like, he kind of wanted her, but he thought his past or something ...more

Um, I think I need Brynn to be my friend, like yesterday! I mean she works at cons with the starts of your favorite tv shows... what else do you need???

Maybe Ever After starts off great! Brynn is so easy to relate: Dorky, awkward and a total fangirl! Really watching Brynn in all her dorky glory was a blast. And she's always surrounded by famous people who are so gracious...

“I looked up from our joined hands. Suddenly, I felt like his hand was giving me breath. Like, perhaps, if he let go, I’d keel over and dies, deprived of the oxygen needed to survive.”

“We, as humans, have limited time on this planet, spending moments full of resentment and sadness was a waste.”

I am a huge sucker for friends to lovers romances and once I read the synopsis for Maybe Ever After, I just knew I had to check it out. I mean, it sounded like it was going to check off all my boxes.

Best friends to lovers trope is a winner for a reason. I have a theory that if a character can love someone from childhood to adulthood that it makes it easier for the reader to fall in love with them too. Makes sense, right? Well it definitely worked with Easton and Brynn (and brother extraordinaire, Bennett), they were very likable characters even when they frustrated me so much I wanted to choke them out.
