At twenty-seven, Libby thinks there's a lot to be said for a rich husband. So when Nick comes along - lovely, funny, handsome Nick, who has no money whatsoever, lives in a grotty bedsit and thinks the perfect night out consists of the pub and his mates - she decides he's only good for a fling. No strings attached. Investment banker Ed, on the other hand, could possibly be the answer. His house in Regent's Park makes up for his hideous moustache and she can probably overlook his irritating habits, and anyway, he's crazy about her. But does Libby really know what she needs? Is she just in love with being loved? Or is she loving the lifestyle, rather than the man?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I loved this book! I couldn't put it down! First there's fun loving Nick, then mr. sensible Ed....oh this book is a must read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from something EVERYONE thinks about ... What I loved about this book was how real it was, I know many friends who have gone down the same path and who had to make the same decisions. Too often we find ourselves between where we want to be and where we're told we should be. This book was absolutely fabulous -- as were Jane Green's other books. Definitely a must read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mr. Mabe Laugh out loud funny. The classic novel of a woman who has to pick between the poor man and the rich man but one for love and lust and the other for the life style she has always dreamt of. Alive with romance, quirks and twists it's a joy to read. I couldn't put it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When's the sequel? While reading Mr. Maybe, you'll take a cutesy journey with Libby, a Brit girl who's constantly describing what she wears, through her trials with love. She's got to pick between a slender and good-in-bed hottie and a stoggy old rich guy with no sense of what a woman wants. Trust me, you'll be rooting for the hottie. Who, sadly enough, reminded me exactly of my ex. Nevertheless, it's an amazingly funny read and you'll fall in love with the story. All I have to say is I can't wait for a sequel!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Read This is an excellent story for all those craving a little romance in their lives. This is not a mushy story dripping with sweetness but instead is a realistic take on relationships and its ups and downs. Join Libby in her quest for the perfect man and journey with her as she experiences the ups and downs of her experince. A must read!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Move over Helen Fielding, Green is on the scene! I liked this as much or more than Helen Fielding's "Bridget Jones Diary". Green writes with an easy going but pursuant style, leaving the reader anxiously flipping pages inbetween snickers. Libby's looking for Mr. Right, but right now she's got two maybes; Ed, on one hand, is reasonable, sensible, and only slightly annoying (did I mention rich?) and Nick, on the other is the irrefutably poor, but a to-die-for-would-be writer who is quite abit relationship-shy. What's a girl to do? You'll have to read it to find out what happens in this hilarious book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mr. Maybe? Definitely! Once in a while a book comes around that strikes the perfect balance of light and sweet without sacrificing the reader to 300 pages of ridiculously over the top romance. Mr. Maybe does just that, in this smart, funny and romantic book, that never made me feel as though I should be reading something else. In Mr. Maybe, Libby is forced to choose between two men, does she go with her heart or her head? As readers we get to go along for the ride, watching as Libby makes smart choices, bad choices and ones that just makes us laugh out loud. I don't read many books twice, but I had to with this one. It was too much fun the first time, and I guarantee you'll think so too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We've All Been There! I lived Libby's life as I read this book, and felt all the things she was going through as she tried to make her dreams fit the reality she was living. Her confusion in finding that "Mr. Right" didn't match the vision she'd had of him, but that the man who did meet her standards really wasn't "Mr. Right" (thus the title) was something that I think most women can definitely relate to. This was a truly wonderful read, and I can't wait to read more of Jane Green's work.

Libby’s got a couple of guys on the go, and they couldn’t be more different from one other. Nick is a free spirit with no money, a great sense of humour and a sexy body; he just wants to go out for a few pints at the pub. Ed is an investment banker with a house in Regent’s Park, a hideous moustache and some annoying habits – and he adores and worships Libby. Jane Green explores the dire reality of having to decide between security and passion in Mr Maybe.

Move over, Helen Fielding! I liked this as much or more than Bridget Jones' Diary. Green writes with an easy-going but pursuant style, leaving the reader anxiously flipping pages in between snickers. Libby's looking for Mr. Right, but right now she's got two maybes. Ed, on the one hand, is reasonable, sensible, and only slightly annoying (did I mention rich?).
