Dual Reviews: 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…

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a passionate tale of friendship, betrayal, and romance—and the enchanting music that inspires one young woman to put her life back together.

From the author of the New York Times bestsellers Slammed, Point of Retreat, Hopeless, This Girl, and Losing Hope, Maybe Someday is destined to become another bestseller and long-lasting fan favorite.

Includes a free original soundtrack by musician Griffin Peterson



Oh wow!! This is one of my all time favorite books! Everything about it was perfect. The storyline, the setting, the characters... everything was absolutely perfect!! This is one of those stories that you never want to see end and when it does you feel empty inside. Although there is nothing left unanswered I still want more.

The way Ridge and Sydney meet was just brilliant. Once you read the book you will see what I mean. I love when a storyline grabs me and makes me think "How does she come up with this stuff?" And then there is the added bonus of all of the music used throughout the book. Instead of just imagining how a song would sound, with one click you can hear them all.

Also this book gets the BEST FIRST KISS award from me. Wow, made my heart beat a mile a minute. From the build up to the actual kiss itself, it was off the charts.

I would give this book 10 stars if I could but I guess I will settle for 5. READ THIS BOOK!!!! ~Christy


Have you read a book that refuses to leave your mind? You think about the characters all the time? You wonder what they are doing now, like they are real to you? This is what Maybe Someday has done to me. I spent my day today going over parts of the book in my head. I can't believe he did that, and I can't believe she learned to do that for him. It's moments like this that I want to go on and on and on about the book. 

I'm telling everyone I know to read this book. I promise them that they will love it, and warn them to have plenty of tissues handy. 

I instantly feel in love with Ridge. His story is like no other, and how he deals with it is extraordinary. He's an amazing human being, and he's just that...Human. We as humans make mistakes, and how he chose to handle it broke half my heart and made the other half love him even more. "For her I bend, for you I break." This is one of my favorite lines from Ridge. 

Sydney is a spitfire. I love how she was with Warren, he's Ridge's best friend and the banter and pranks between the three of them had me laughing my butt off. What happened to Sydney in the beginning was wrong, but I felt even more pain and heartache for her throughout the rest of the book. "I failed first." One of the saddest moments in this book is when Sydney says this to Ridge. 

This story is funny, sweet, and heart wrenching. I felt torn by the path that the characters took. Is it right? Is it wrong? You don't choose love, love chooses you. Who am I to say that faced with this same situation that I wouldn't have done the same thing. The plot was original, and the music was absolutely perfect. 

Colleen Hoover moved me with her words. "Sometimes we have to have really bad days in order to keep the good ones in perspective." 

Thank You, Colleen for a very good day of reading. I will cherish this book forever, and Maybe Someday I will get to meet her and have her sign it. ~Jen
