Summary of More Than Maybe by Erin Hahn

Luke and Vada are crazy in like with each other-only neither one knows about the other’s feelings.

18 year old Luke has a popular-but-retired punk rock dad who can help him find fame, but Luke just wants to write music in private and record his podcast with his twin brother (when said brother isn’t out on dates with his boyfriend).

Vada, a classmate, is obsessed with music and plans to attend the music journalism program at UCLA and secure a Rolling Stone internship. She’s well on her way, working at a legendary club courtesy of her mom’s boyfriend and making a name for herself through his popular music blog.

Luke and Vada crush on each other from afar, but until they work together at the club, neither has a clue that they’re about to fall in love, or one will go viral.  But life isn’t just unicorns and rainbows, the course of true love never did run smooth.
