Maybe It's You | Book Review


Reagan Bellamy’s neighbor is everything she never wanted. Despite her best efforts to ignore him and fly under his radar, Dash Carter refuses to wither under her stare and leave her alone. So what if he’s totally hot? Who cares if her roommates think he’s adorable? Reagan’s too busy to waste time on a loser with musical pipe dreams. Between classes, studies, and her need to stay ahead of the game, she’s got too much on her plate to give him the time of day.

Dash Carter is a man on a mission. He’s done a total 180 and for the first time in a long time feels optimistic about the future. He’s clean, he’s on a good path, and he’s surrounded himself with people who make life better, not worse. Unfortunately, his neighbor—the one girl who’s always piqued his interest—still thinks he’s a slacker, bothering Dash more than it should. 

Acting on an opportunity to show Reagan he’s a changed man, Dash inadvertently puts her in a difficult position with her new boss and sends her down a path she hasn’t the time or inclination to pursue. Desperate to make things right, Dash becomes more invested in her life despite warnings from his mentor to not get involved with someone whose beliefs don’t match his own.

Reagan’s not sure what it says about her that she’d rather deal with Dash the deadbeat than Dash the Bible thumper. The more she digs her heels in against the religious freaks she’s forced to interact with, the more she begins to question everything she’s built her life upon. When the tide begins to turn in Reagan’s heart and her worldview flips upside down, trusting God means putting everything on the line, including her heart.

Maybe It’s You by Christy Hayes offers a refreshing depiction of faith in fiction. Life on a college campus has its temptations, of course, and her characters are not exempt. But as they wrestle with choices and challenges in light of faith, the growth they experience over the course of the story feels realistic—and encouraging.

Reagan Bellamy is focused on her education and sticking to her plans. She does not have time for the boy next door and the new faith he claims. Still, musician Dash Carter will not give up on his attraction to her—which naturally leads to scenarios that test, push, and make them think. Reagan and Dash each, though different, have a journey of faith to traverse, and with authenticity, Hayes brings them to a place of strength, redemption, and even romance.

Easily falling in love with Reagan and Dash, I enjoyed the story of Maybe It’s You. It’s definitely different than the typical Christian romance, and I appreciated that. And you might, too—if you like contemporary faith-filled fiction, I recommend you check this book out.
