Maybe This Time (Whiskey and Weddings #2)

MAYBE THIS TIME                                        NICOLE McLAUGHLIN

Jen Mackenzie has been knocked down more than a few times, but she always gets up and makes sure she has the last word. It’s the reason she now considers herself equal parts self-sufficient and free-spirit. But since losing her job and trying to help her mother beat cancer, real life―and her occasional careless choices―have begun to catch up with her. Her one saving grace: The Stag, a boutique distillery that has become Kansas City’s go-to wedding venue. The only catch: One of the owners, TJ Laughlin, happens to be the one man who somehow manages to make Jen feel inadequate.

TJ has secretly had a thing for Jen since high school. Now, as her new boss, it’s a daily struggle between revealing his feelings and wringing her beautiful neck. Only one thing is for certain: he can’t stand idly by and watch the woman he cares for struggle. She may be convinced that accepting TJ’s help is a weakness. But all he sees in Jen is beauty and strength, inside and out. As things finally heat up between them, can TJ find a way to convince Jen that love is about give and take―and having it all, together?


This is one of those stories where the boy T.J. had a crush on Jen in high school but because they both ran with different people neither the too should go on a date. Now years later and Jen is now working for T.J. because her mother is sick and her community theater job was closed down. She happens to be knocking out the wedding planning at the Kanas City venue where now they are actually thinking of turning customers away because they are so booked. Also, she has been doing a better job than the person before her who she just took over for maternity leave. T.J. must come up with some plane to take her out and share his feelings with her before she runs out of town like she did after high school. Not wanting or thinking that she is good enough for him she is doing everything to avoid him for she liked him also in high school, but was used to people looking down at her and she thinks that he was one of those. Now he must show her his true feelings and when he does hopefully she will stop running. A good story with good characters. I received this book from I gave it 4 stars. Follow us at
