Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
At twenty-two years old, aspiring musician Sydney Blake has a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her good friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter cheating on her with Tori—and she is left trying to decide what to do next.
Sydney becomes captivated by her mysterious neighbor, Ridge Lawson. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the daily guitar playing he does out on his balcony. She can feel the harmony and vibrations in his music. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either: He seems to have finally found his muse. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one…

Sometimes you stumble (or fall head-first such in my case) into the works of an author and know immediately that you will remain forever a faithful servant. You sit quietly and patiently on the sidelines until the next book is released because you know in your heart that you will embark on yet another sensational reading journey. I’ve had the best experiences with Colleen Hoover; she never fails me. Ever! Her ability to embrace you with words, pull you under and not let go until the last printed page is a talent that comes naturally and she was born with it! I can name only three authors who have this affect on me, and Colleen is certainly one of them.
I went into Maybe Someday completely blind. I didn’t want to hear how she pulled it out of the ‘bag’ again, or how she delivered yet another 'emotionally-charged' romance because I just had to experience it all for myself with new eyes and an open heart; and experience it I did.
Ridge and Sydney’s story took a direction unlike any I imagined. At 14% I literally shouted ‘NO WAY,’ then dived back under my covers knowing I was in for the ‘one-sitting long-haul’.
Lets just rip the band-aid off shall we... ready? This is a love story that has a touch of the forbidden in the form of a triangle, but hold on... before you judge; let me tell you that this is unlike any triangle I have ever read! I’m a sucker for them but what I adored about this one is it was gradual; it simmered quietly beneath the surface and took form into something that is undeniable and incredibly beautiful.
You connect so fully with the characters through the double POV that you get to appreciate and understand their struggle to maintain an even keel even though the feelings that bombards them both is inescapable. Colleen Hoover has taken a subject that many readers struggle with and delivered it with compassion and sensitivity, making it my favourite book of hers, yet!
The message is simple; it’s all about choices. Do you act on compulsion or simply 'listen' to what your heart is telling you?
Maybe Someday is a tale of new friendship borne from trust and honesty in the wake of tragic heartbreak. It follows two very different people whom connect through their passion of music that creates a mutual respect and an unbreakable bond. But, it isn’t all about sexual tension; this story also delivers some hilarious ‘prank’ scenarios and an unimaginable twist that makes this book stand out from the crowd.
The characters are likable and when thrown in a difficult position, take a mature approach. There is no unnecessary drama or silly scenarios that made my teeth hurt, although this book did make me sniffle once or twice!
The song lyrics were inspiring and added so much depth to the story - I was there, in that room, living and breathing the music along with them. I felt I played a part in the whole process and it made for another wonderful reading experience.
And I cannot end this review without mentioning the interactive 'musical' element because it simply is, a work of total genius!
Sensationally written, beautifully composed and worth the weight of its words, in gold!
