"Like your favorite song, More Than Maybe burrows inside your heart and stays there. Vada and Luke's story of music, family, and first love will shoot to the top of your book playlist. A rich, sweet, rock and roll ride." (Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times best-selling author of Girl in Pieces and How to Make Friends with the Dark)
Growing up under his punk rocker dad’s spotlight, 18-year-old Luke Greenly knows fame and wants nothing to do with it. His real love isn’t in front of a crowd, it’s on the page. Hiding his gift and secretly hoarding songs in his bedroom at night, he prefers the anonymous comfort of the locally popular podcast he co-hosts with his outgoing and meddling, far-too-jealousy-inspiringly-happy-with-his-long-term-boyfriend twin brother, Cullen. But that’s not Luke’s only secret. He also has a major unrequited crush on music blogger Vada Carsewell.
Vada’s got a five-year plan: secure a job at the Loud Lizard to learn from local legend (and her mom’s boyfriend) Phil Josephs (check), take over Phil’s music blog (double check), get accepted into Berkeley’s prestigious music journalism program (check, check, check), manage Ann Arbor’s summer concert series, and secure a Rolling Stone internship. Luke Greenly is most definitely not on the list. So what if his self-deprecating charm and out-of-this-world music knowledge makes her dizzy? Or that his brother just released a bootleg recording of Luke singing about some mystery girl on their podcast and she really, really wishes it was her?
In More Than Maybe, Erin Hahn’s swooniest audiobook yet, Luke and Vada must decide how deep their feelings run and what it would mean to give love a try.

Magical and musical.
Such a wonderful love story. Erin Hahn really and truly is a masterful writer. The way she breathes life and music into her characters is absolutely stunning. If you're a fan of music, if you're a fan of love, if you're a fan of YA, check this out. Erin's books are life-alteringly good.

Erin Hahn has done it again!!
More Than Maybe is a sweet love story from beginning to end. I adore the lovable characters as much as the honest and enjoyable storyline. Hahn’s writing style is from the heart and relatable. The allusion to so many amazing songs throughout the book add depth to the character’s feelings, too - I even caught the You’d Be Mine reference!! I found a More Than Maybe playlist on Spotify, and plan to listen to this book again - pausing when songs are mentioned to listen.
Didn't Enjoy It
I wanted to enjoy this book, but for some reason it felt so dull and pointless
The Story is about Luke and Vada, Luke is the son of a rock star but he doesn't want to be public to the crowd, and Vada's dream is to be a music journalist and she is working hard to get to her dream, both of them have a crush on each other but through out the book we seem them dancing around each other fearing they misunderstood each other's feelings
I like the relationship between Vada's mother and Phil it was adorable .. other than that not so much
The narrators were OK but I don't feel they were right for this book
