Peter Parker Penn. 

Unlike the superhero his mother named him after, Parker is no good guy. 

In fact, if there's a picture in the dictionary under anti-hero, it's his. 

Parker's spent his life trying to get back on the right side of the tracks, but each step he takes forward, he takes two more steps back. 

To save one, he hurts others. To make this good, he turns that bad. 

For appearances' sake, he plays the part. He does what people expect him to do-mostly. And at the end of each day, he goes back to his lonely apartment and wishes he was a different person. One who could fix the things he's broken. 

Then Kayla Nash forces her way into his life, and the world as he knows it is irrevocably changed. 

Everything he thinks he has right is wrong. And everything he thinks is wrong is oh, so right. 

One thing leads to another, and suddenly he's growing a conscience, and trying to prove to her that he's as bad as everybody says he is. 

Yet she won't listen. 

She's convinced that she can save him. 

Little does she know, Parker isn't worth saving, and never will be.

I am still new to Lani Lynn Vale's writing style so I really enjoyed reading Maybe Don't Wanna. My first read by this author was Kinda Don't Care, which is the first book in the Simple Man Series. When I read that book, I felt a little lost because it is a crossover series and I met so many new characters that it became overwhelming for me. This reading journey was a bit different. I already knew Janie and Rafe (Kinda Don't Care) so I felt like I could connect a bit more to this story.

I really liked Kayla and Parker together. I loved that they were perfectly imperfect for each other. Their story is a roller coaster ride of emotions that will keep readers turning the pages until the very end. Two people found each other and created their own safe haven. Their is an age gap between Kayla and Parker, but it did not take anything away from my reading journey.  Sometimes I have a difficult time connecting to a couple because of that, but it was not the case at all in this book. Kayla was like a soothing balm for Parker. He has been thru so much.

I really enjoyed this reading escape and can't wait to read what is next. The supporting cast of character is awesome and I met some new characters as well. I'm happy I discovered this author a few months ago and definitely will be reading more of this series. 


I give, Maybe Don't Wanna, by Lani Lynn Vale, 4 stars!
