Their paths never should have crossed. She’s a bright new attorney. He’s a sexy, tattooed kickboxer. But when Katie uncharacteristically opens the door to the kickboxing studio, their worlds are about to change.

Katie Capwell is a bright and accomplished recent law school graduate, and she has her shiny future all mapped out. It’s brimming with courtroom victories and creating change. Ryan Brincatt is a tattooed and impossibly cool martial artist, and he’s mastered a fierce roundhouse kick.

Their paths never should have crossed.

But when Katie lurks outside the kickboxing gym where Ryan works as a trainer, she’s immediately drawn to his casual confidence and playful green eyes. Without making her usual list of pros and cons, she impulsively signs up to train with him.

She never imagined that one decision would change. Absolutely. Everything.

Maybe someone like you is Katie Capwell's story about finding the life you want, rather than the one everyone expects. Katie is following in her mother's footsteps and has just graduated from law school. Now she needs to find a job and settle into her career. The hard work isn't over yet and Katie i ...more

I loved this book! It's the perfect slow burn and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. (Because, you know, the slow burn.) ;) Stacy Wise takes us on a journey with a heroine who is smart, ambitious, and ready to step out of her comfort zone to get what she wants. Add in friendship, family, humor, ...more

Drinking game: take a shot every time I say the words ‘slow burn’ in this review.

This is my first book by Stacy Wise, and I absolutely loved it! It’s cute and swoony, with just the right amount of cheese.

Ryan is not Katie’s type; she’s an overachieving law school graduate, and he’s a tattooed marti ...more

By Amy April 12, 2018

My first book from Stacy Wise and it most definitely won’t be my last!! “Maybe Someone Like you” was brilliantly done and so addictive! The Romance was a slow burn in the best possible way and perfectly done with the most amazing characters. Katie and Ryan were fated from the very beginning and I ad ...more

By Elizabeth April 23, 2018

Katie is a recent law school graduate with her future planned out. It includes courtroom victories and making a change in the world. It does not have room for a tattooed martial artist. You wouldn't think their paths would ever cross, that they aren't meant to, but you'd be wrong. They're perfect fo ...more

By Melissasfandomworld April 06, 2018

This was such an addictive, romantic and sweet read and I'm still debating whether or not I should promote the book to a 5-star rating instead of 4.5 stars. This story was one I just couldn't stop reading once started and finished in nearly one-sitting (I had to take care of my son at some point, lo ...more

Rating 4.5/5*

This is a delightful, slow burn, romance with the heroine, Katie Capwell, as the main character throughout. In the first few pages we learn  that Katie had recently finished law school and is awaiting her bar results when the job she'd accepted falls through and her boyfriend splits wit ...more

By Ofelia April 16, 2018

OMG what an amazing book, it captivated my attention since the very beginning. Katie may have trouble sticking up for herself and speaking her mind but she has a big heart. She may still be struggling to find herself but when she walks by the kick boxing gym and meets Ryan for the first time she fin ...more

He’s wearing the tie he wore on the night I met him, the one that’s covered with tiny foxes. I used to think it was cute, but now it only looks useful—like something I could choke him with.

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. My thoughts and opinions are my own. Also, t ...more

Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books, on 4/20/18.

In Maybe Someone Like You, the focus is on the heroine and the romance, though sweet and ultimately satisfying, takes a back seat to her figuring out what she wants and where she's going with her life. There are dozens of Ryan-and-Katie moments sprinkl ...more

By Shea April 03, 2018

This is one of the best books I have read so far in 2018. Stacy Wise has crafted a sweet story about a young woman's path to finding happiness within herself, within her career and within a relationship. If you are looking for a hot and heavy romance that will melt your Kindle then this isn't the bo ...more

Love, love, loved this book!! This is the kind of book you make your husband mad by staying up too late because you just have to finish it. (Not that I did that or anything.)

When Katie Capwell decided to sign up kickboxing lessons, she never imagined her life would change for the better, especially since she and Ryan Brincatt are from totally different worlds. However, the more he teaches her, the more she finds herself falling for him. Will Katie and Ryan achieve their ...more

After a job opportunity falls through and she breaks up with her boyfriend, recent law school grad Katie Capwell is drawn to a boxing gym one day while on her way to a yoga class. While looking through the windows to the gym, she's approached by the sweet, sexy trainer, Ryan Brincatt. After signing ...more

x I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. I’d like to thank Net Galley and Entangled Publishing for this opportunity. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This book was an addicting slow burn! Katie’s character development as an independent badass woman was commendable. I adm ...more

By Heather April 18, 2018

This book has cursing (including a dozen or so f-bombs) but no on-page sex. If cursing will cause you to leave a bad review, please use your own judgment before reading this book.

New adult isn't my preferred genre, but I really liked the story that this book told. Ryan and Katie were both really lik ...more

Maybe Someone Like You reminded me of my favorite slow burn romances in the best possible ways.

Katie has recently graduated law school, and also was recently dumped by her jerk of an ex. While going to a yoga class with a friend she meets Ryan, an instructor at a kickboxing gym.

After a trial she si ...more

This is the first book that I've read by Stacy Wise, and I really enjoyed it's sweet & slow burn goodness. She took me on a journey with a heroine, Katie, who was smart, hardworking, ambitious, and who was strong enough to step out of her comfort zone when life didn't go quite how she thought it wou ...more

By Becky April 17, 2018

Maybe Someone Like You is a sweet story about coming into ones self. Insecurities plague Katie's mind after he boyfriend went from Prince potential to total toad. Always trying to please Mom isn't exactly a confidence booster either. Losing her first Job before it starts...Yeah, Katie is wallowing i ...more

* I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own *

This is the story of Katie Capwell who has just graduated law school and waiting on an interview for a Law Firm she wants to join.
While having a down day, Katie and her friend are going to the Yoga studio but Katie stops o ...more

By Denise April 16, 2018

This is the first time in reading this author. The cover is cute and the characters capture your attention. Katie and Ryan are the center of this one. This author is also taking a leap with this one and doing like back in the day with this being heavy on the romance with not alot of fire. That made ...more

By Francine (asreadbyfrancine) June 26, 2018

I received this book as an ARC a while ago, and I might be a little late in posting this review but I really liked this book! It was a sweet, romantic read with two characters that I enjoyed reading about. Katie and Ryan are what some people would deem "incompatible", but that isn't the case in this ...more

By Mags April 10, 2018

This is my first book by Stacy Wise and I have to say I enjoyed it. Even though it's not my usual read, being that it's pure romance and completely free of sex.

But Maybe Someone Like You really drew me in. As it had a nice slow burn element to it, and was extremely sweet, charming and very easy to r ...more

By Cathy June 08, 2020

This book actually made me feel really good inside. Katie is a very dedicated hard worker with a passion for life. I'm glad she stands up for herself and women and goes with what she believes to be the right thing. Ryan even though it sounds like he had a right exterior is just a sweet ball of fluff ...more

By Jessica April 16, 2018

This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased, honest opinion.

First off, I loved Katie so much!! She was the cutest, most relate-able characters that I’ve read in a long time. I love that she would blush bright red whenever she was embarrassed because that’s exactly what I do. Trying to talk to a cut ...more
