Title: Maybe Later
Author: Claudia Burgoa
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 7, 2019
My personal assistant—a.k.a. half my brain—has abandoned me to have a
baby. Alright, alright, I’m not a total jerk, but the temporary virtual
assistant Carla left in her place is driving me crazy.
I’ve repeatedly refused to fill out Amy Walker’s way-too-friendly
questionnaire. But somehow, she ninjas me into giving up details about my
private life—all while suffering her oh-so-subtle jabs at my likes, dislikes,
even my system for running my business.
I don’t care what she heard, I am not a problem child.
I just know what’s tried and true.
At first, her feel-good P.S. quotes sounded more like B.S. Yet our
emails and texts gradually take on a new dimension, and I find myself thinking
of her as something I haven’t cultivated in a long time. A friend.
Maybe she’s right. It’s time I get a life. Starting with stepping out
from behind the screen and putting my feelings on the line. I’ll never know
unless I try.
Note: Contains a
grumpy, workaholic tech CEO with a guarded heart, and a virtual assistant whose
skills border on diabolical. Also, two cats named Ramen and Sushi.
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.
Burgoa did a beautiful job with both character development and developing the virtual relationship between Amy and Jackson, making it impossible not to love both of these characters. Amy is both the bold, intelligent, uninhibited heroine we all love and the uncertain, timid, cautious person many of us strive to overcome. Jackson seems like the complete opposite of Amy, but as interactions with Amy reveal more of Jackson's character, the similarities become more apparent. Through both of these characters, Burgoa shows the ease of courageous keyboarding while highlighting the importance of bravery and taking chances in real the real world. With endearing, relatable characters, a unique format and a fresh storyline, this engaging, heartfelt, humorous read is definitely worth a 1-Click.

If you do any advance copy reading of books or are in any book groups or authors’ groups on Facebook, you’ve probably seen authors and readers alike discussing their reviews disappearing from Amazon recently. Not long ago, all my reviews were deleted by Amazon, and I'll share some suggestions on what to do, should you find yourself in this situation, and some tips on how to hopefully avoid it happening to you in the future.
Sadly, Amazon’s review system, especially for books, isn’t perfect and there are certainly abuses to it, but reviews really are critical to both authors and readers. For authors, the more reviews their book has, the more notice it gets, which translates to more sales. For readers, reviews hopefully give us accurate information so we can decide if a book is worth our time and money or if we should just move along to the next one.
I’ve been reading advance copies and reviewing for a…
