Yet again, I say...this is just one of the million things I love about blogging.  New to me authors!  Claudia Burgoa, who I had the honor to meet last fall, is a new to me author and I am amazed with her story!

Maybe Later is a story about two people, who have created different personas for different reasons.

What starts as a business relationship develops in to a grudging friendship and then more.  

I loved the banter between the two main characters, I don't want to name them because each "name" g

Maybe Later is an absolutely charming romance. It's witty, fun, emotional, and completely engaging from start to finish. It's the story of two people who don't trust easily and both are pretending to be someone else. The truth of them lies somewhere in the middle of what they show to the world and what they give to each other under the anonymity provided by email and text messaging. From the beginning, I was sure I knew exactly where this one was going, where the relationship angst would come fr ...more

Maybe Later is a unique, sexy and heartfelt romance that hits all the right spots. Jackson is a hardworking, reclusive and gruff CEO, who meets his match in his intelligent and feisty virtual assistant, Amy. They square off and argue from the moment he sends her his first list of tasks, but they quickly find themselves working well together and talking about more personal matters over emails and messenger chats. They’re both leery of love and surprised when they begin to feel strongly about some ...more

If you’re getting a little bored with the typical tropy romance, this is the book for you. With a fresh premise, a unique format and a fascinating twist, Maybe Later deserves a category of its own. Start with a cranky CEO forced to avail himself of a virtual assistant. Add in said assistant with her snappy, snarky, brilliant emails and messages, then a side potential romance for both characters, and let the fun begin.

Maybe Later is a stand alone romance by Claudia Burgoa. This is such a wonderful book. It’s one of those books that just makes you feel all warm on the inside. These two were so cute together. I will admit that they did frustrate me as well. I just wanted to give them both a little shake and make them see what was right in front of their faces!!

I'm in love with love stories that explore other tropes. Falling in heavy like via email or text messaging sounds like something I could really get behind. Maybe it's because it can go either way... the people behind the screens could be completely truthful... or be hiding so much more than just their appearances. In this book, Jackson and Amy were those people.

Jackson was a successful and reclusive CEO. He didn't do well with people. He trusted very few and newbies didn't stand a chance. So whe

Maybe Later was a fantastically witty and charming slow burn romance that will have you laughing out loud. Written mainly as email conversations, it was easy to experience their relationship first hand.

When Jackson Spearman’s PA goes on maternity leave, there a very limited options for her replacement.  Her boss is arrogantly successful, and an absolute tyrant to work for.  Knowing that he’s a nightmare, she hires him a virtual assistant in her absence.

2.5 stars

So what the hell happened here??
The first half of the book was fun, flirty and I really liked it. So we have messages between businessman Jackson and his assistant. They haven’t seen each other because she is his virtual assistant so they are texting via mail and chat.

At the beginning I was a little tired of how much pages were dedicated to just texting and we didn’t see anything else, it occupied quite a few pages but soon I realized that that was the best part.

So I knew from beginning

Let me start out by saying I usually need a box of tissues close by when I read one of Claudia's books but this one was different, not only did I not need the tissues I was actually laughing out loud at times! This book touched on some heavy subjects, like, being the perfect child and divorce, but honestly it didn't wallow in it so you didn't feel the over abundance of emotions...YAY! I really couldn't deal with that right now in my real life I needed this light, fun romance.

After reading a dark romance, a change of pace was in order, and Maybe Later by Claudia Burgoa was the book I didn't know I need it.

Filled to the brim with swoony feelings and witty banter, Maybe Later is a total breath of fresh air you won’t be able to keep away from nor tear your eyes off of.

To read a new author is always a risk, but I'm glad I took this one because now I am pretty excited to read more from Claudia Burgoa. Do not miss out on this story that will make you fall in love with Bu

This book was okay. I liked where it started with the bossy boss and the in-charge woman clashing and learning to tolerate and then appreciate each other. The growing penetration in each others' personal life was fun to watch. It stays exclusively epistolary through the first 20% or so, but its well-done and with an eye to characterization that I appreciated. If you have a low tolerance for that format, however, then it will drag. I love a well-done epistolary story, though, so I enjoyed myself ...more

I can honestly say this book is one of a kind. It was charming. It was amusing. I was hooked from the very first email. This was no ordinary employee/boss romance.

Jackson Pearson is a grouch of a boss. He is a hard person to please and he is very closed off. His current assistant is going to be out of commission for a little while and he needs a temp and that’s where Amy comes in. She is his new virtual assistant. She is a major pain in his ass. She is free with her words and not as reserved as

Really love this trope and format :email , chats and messaging and I melted reading this love story.
I thought it's gonna be usual jackass boss and assistant office romance,but this was so different in a good way.
Jackson gets a new virtual assistant and rejects the idea of her instantly,but Amy is the best at her job so she handles the "grumpy ogre" like a pro. They become close to friends although they never meet in real life. Jackson is a very reserved man and wants to keep it that way

I am so confused about how to rate this book! The first 50% of this book I was not the biggest fan, I liked the story but it was almost only emails I was reading and I was getting maybe a little bored and needed more from the characters, I wanted to know them more. but then just as I was agreeing with my self that this book would probably only get 3 stars she ended the last 50% of the book with a 5 stars worthy story. So now I was like well what do I do know? So I ended up giving it 4 sta
3.75 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I really enjoyed the first half of this book, especially the texting and emails - so fun and snarky.
I was a long way into the book before I realized that this was a modern spin on the movie "You Got Mail" by Nora Ephron which the author credits in her "Dear Reader" comments at the end of the book.
She calls this a virtual romantic comedy, which is pretty apt IMO.
Jack/Jackson and Em/Amy were interesting characters and in retrospect this was a really good story but at the time while

What do you get when you throw together a grumpy, cantankerous CEO and an optimistic Virtual Assistant who plans to break down his walls? You get one helluva fantastic read that's what you get!!!!

I just could not put down this book. Every spare minute I had was spent absorbed in this quirky, witty book filled with the banter of two people who are seemingly complete opposites but over time begin to warm up to the idea of more.

Maybe Later by Claudia Burgoa is the story of Jackson Spearman and Amy Walker.
Jackson is a well off CEO but is a recluse because he doesn't trust or really like most people. Jackson is thrown into a new experience when is assistant goes on maternity leave. Enter Amy, who will be is virtual assistant until his real one comes back. They communicate mainly at first via email, text..etc. Amy is funny, smart and works hard at her job but with that she doesn't take a bunch of mouth from him and sets

I absolutely loved this book. It was so different. It had everything for my emotiins. The relationship between Jack and Emmaline was complicated. Each of them afraid of allowing anyone into their lives. They both had trust issues. I lived the cincept with this book. The banter between was amusing. Their willingness to take a chance changed them forever.

A 'You've Got Mail' feel to it.

Billionaire Jackson is not known for his friendliness or tact in dealing with those around him so when his personal assistant goes on maternity leave, a virtual replacement is hired in the form of Amy. Amy is efficient to the nth degree albeit slightly sassy but deals with his moods in an excellent way. When Jackson meets the enigmatic Emmaline in a bookstore, there is an instant attraction but a reluctance from her to get involved in a relationship. Little does he

I went into this story thinking it's a work place rom-com but wow did it end up being so much more.

The characters are so complex. They are funny, they are driven, they need each other. I laughed so much but the more I learned about them, the more I felt every ounce of heartbreak they had experienced. I wanted to wrap them up in hugs and make everything all better.

There are twists in this story that I didn't expect and it added so much more to this story. From the moment I opened this book, I was

This was different

Not much heat in this one, but I really did’nt miss it as I was so caught up in the emails going back and forth. The virtual world collides with the real world and things get pretty interesting. I really liked Jackson and Em, they certainly had some secrets and insecurities and this author took us down a very slow road, but it was surprisingly enjoyable. 4.5 stars.

Five soul-striking starts! Readers will love it instantly.

Oh my pounding heart! What a wild and beautiful journey I experienced while reading this book. Maybe Later by Claudia Y. Burgoa is achingly emotional and exquisitely raw and funny. It was a roll coaster of emotions. So many good times. So many laughs. So many tears. It is a story that still dances in my heart and dreams. It is bubbly as champagne. It is a sweet piece of heaven wrapped with all the feels. Truly extraordinary. Unequivocally

Thank you Claudia Burgoa. Thank you for writing a different and amazing story just touched my heart so deeply. Thank you for reminding me about the beauty of falling in love with best friend. This motivating and emotional story with all it's lighthearted fun and sometimes serious philosophy has won me over. Completely.

GEEZ, this book was super complex, but so freaking good!

When Jackson's, a successful but reclusive CEO, secretary goes on maternity leave, he is absolutely lost. He does not trust easy and is a bit of an ogre, so she hires him a virtual assistant, Amy Walker. These two communicate through emails and chats and their banter is absolutely awesome!

Jackson cannot stand how unprofessional that Amy is, but he eventually begins to thaw towards her and starts to even look forward to talking to her. The

Jackson Spearman is set up with a Virtual Assistant for 3 months while his Assistant is out on maternity leave. His VA, Amy Walker, has been warned that he is difficult. The first part of the book consists of the back and forth dialog between them by emails. I haven't laughed so hard in a book in a long time! Poor man couldn't get his Reuben sandwich for nothing! Amy took him out of his comfort zone in so many ways. Both Jackson and Amy have a lot of baggage in their past that have caused them t ...more

I absolutely love it when an author takes a chance by stepping outside the box and writes something different. If you’ve read Claudia Burgoa’s books, you know she doesn’t usually write romantic comedies and I am beyond thrilled that she wrote Maybe Later. Ms. Burgoa truly shows off her comedic writing skills with this cheeky romance. I’m still in a romantic comedy cloud after reading this book.

The writing in Maybe Later is perfection with a page turning, uniquely crafted storyline that is funny

I wish that I could say this book was phenomenal I wish that I could say this book was amazing. However even though I love the author Claudia burgoa. This book did not meet its match. I wish that I could say that everything this book was to my standards and it was not.
