At twenty-two years old, Sydney is enjoying a great life: She's in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her. Maybe Someday. Book 1 of 2 in the MAYBE SOMEDAY series. Book 1 is a standalone. Book 2 is a spinoff and can be read seperately. From #1 New York Times. New Release; Book Series. Slammed Series · Hopeless Series · Maybe Someday Series Maybe Someday Series. Maybe Someday · Maybe Not · Maybe Now.
Desire is easy to fight. Especially when the only weapon desire possesses is attraction. For the good of others, they must squash, bury and forget their feelings for each other. And as a reader, my heart broke for the rightness of their togetherness, but I simultaneously felt conflicted by the goodness of their intentions given the impossible situation.
In my opening thoughts, I said that the story was emotionally turbulent and what I meant by that is that I felt so many feelings at war within me as the scenes unfurled on the pages. For her I bend, for you I break.
The story, which is told through an alternating Ridge and Sydney point-of-view does an amazing job at helping us to understand their thoughts and feelings, deepening the connection I had with them as characters, so when reality brutally severs hope, I was shattered.
I assumed that maybe someday, when I was ready, things could have developed between us. There will never be a maybe someday. The looming end seemed too murky and unresolved. Furthermore, the added richness of the music made it all feel so alive.
I love the fact that this author continues to push herself in each of her books.
That even at the top of her game, I continue to see growth and innovation with each new release. Whether it be a novel way to format chapters to maximize impact or in this case, adding an unexpected dimension to heighten emotion, Colleen Hoover has simply become one of the most exciting authors to read.
I anxiously await her next book, Ugly Love later this year. Connect with Colleen. I also loved the fact that, Ridge is not portrayed as that one gorgeous hell of a guy, with perfect smile and to-die-for abs, that we are again too tired of seeing in New Adult books, he was imperfect, and that made the story even more appealing. The author find a way to bring a beautiful story despite the fact that there was this barrier, and she made it as if it is no barrier at all.
It added that sense of uniqueness to it, it is what sets it apart from all the mediocre books. I also liked the fact that Sydney is not that whiny little brat, she was one hell of a woman, vulnerable yes, but stronger as opposed to what she lets on.
It presented the story as it is, no unnecessary drama, just what is required. Few chapters left when I was so sure I will never get the ending I have hoped for, again I am mistaken, because I was beyond satisfied with that ending — ahhh it was just so beautiful. This book toyed with my emotions, it made me cry more than it made me laugh, but despite the emotional train-wreck I was having, I can say this is already a favorite book and I can see myself rereading it over and over and over.
And oh, I loved reading it whilst listening to the playlist. Griffin Peterson made the book alive, as if I was Sydney and I get to hear what Ridge and I had made, it was yet another amazing reading experience.
Allow it to take over your heart. It's an unforgettable journey that every reader should take. This is a standalone novel. Release date: March 18, Also, on a side note, I really strongly visualized every single thing in my head as I was reading. Every scene, every character, every location is crystal clear in my mind so I'm going to pray to the movie gods that this story ends up on the big screen because it would make one helluva movie!

Ridge should take some advice from Mr. I'll be honest I guess it all boils down to if you enjoy this type of plot. And I personally, hated it. And now I want to burn the memory of ever reading this book from my brain. Maybe I should give it some props since it made me feel albeit they were negative emotions.
I should start off by saying that I hate love triangles.
With a passion. So maybe I was already prejudiced going into this bo Ridge should take some advice from Mr. So maybe I was already prejudiced going into this book. If I hate love triangles that much then why in the world did I read this book?
The simple answer is that I was curious.
And I curse that curiosity for making me pick up this book. I read some glowing 5 star reviews about how this love triangle is all complex and heartbreaking and I decided I needed to try it out. Usually when I don't like a book, or stuff happens that I don't agree with, I will just drop the book. But with this book, I just had to know how the author would resolve the love triangle from hell.
This rant will just consist of the things I hated in this book. Cause I didn't like anything 1. There was nothing attractive to me about Ridge.
From his name to his actions. He was a sleaze. It was totally okay that he fell for two girls and was cheating on basically both of them. The book makes it seem okay, but it's fucking not. He was emotionally cheating on his girlfriend long before he actually kissed Sydney.
Did you catch that? He kissed Sydney, and didn't even have the balls to tell his girlfriend Maggie what he did.
He just pretends everything is okay. Not okay, man. I hated Sydney, too. There were SO many things I wish she had done differently. One, I wish she had dated another guy and shoved that relationship down Ridge's throat like he did with Maggie.
Then she cried so fucking much. Boo-hoo, cry me a river, bitch. Then I hated the fact that she just got cheated on and then went on and did that to another girl. Like, WTF? Who does that? I hated watching Ridge with Maggie. Because I know they're not gonna end up together, why am I being subjected to reading about them? It just cheapens the real romance in my opinion. Because at the end when Ridge came to Sydney's apartment and was kissing her all I could think of was him kissing Maggie and professing his love to her and begging her to take him back.
And that night he even said in his letter that he would go back to her if she asked!?? Although he did try to smooth that over by saying that's not what his heart wants Fuck your heart Ridge. And I don't want to read about him kissing, hugging, and fucking Maggie. I hated all the shame and guilt they harbored. He honestly didn't deserve both of them. I wanted Sydney to leave his ass and end up with someone who chooses her and makes her his first and only choice.
If Ridge had loved Maggie so much he would never have fallen for another girl. And it was just so frustrating to read. They didn't even have any personal goals. All Sydney thought about was how much she wants Ridge and how much she should not want Ridge.
All Ridge thought about was how innocent he is and is doing nothing wrong but why does he still feel guilty? The biggest thing that bothered me was that Ridge didn't choose Sydney. Maggie made that decision for him. And that is why I ended up hating this book. I've read love triangles before and ended up not hating them with a passion, because in those the character who has the choice between two others chooses one. Ridge would have never, ever, in a million years realized that he is better suited with Sydney.
I wanted Ridge to choose Sydney. No external forces, just him and his heart. But no, we did not get that. In the end all Sydney ended up being was second-best. And even though I didn't like her character, she still deserves someone who will make her his first choice. And how can she be with someone who she knows is a cheater?
She just left one cheater for another. The ending wasn't even satisfying. When a couple gets together in the end there should be no doubt in my mind that they are meant to be and will last beyond the last page.
But I still question Ridge's love. Does he really love her? Or Maggie more? Even though he said otherwise, I don't believe him. And I can't stop feeling that Sydney deserves more. Fuck this shit. Love is not a triangle. View all comments. But I highly doubt it. So shots all around, for another CoHo favorite! The power of pine-sol, baby. What I love most about Colleen Hoover books, in conjunction with her beautifully mapped out stories, is the fact that none of them are the same.
They're all so richly unique to one another and each one becomes something I've honestly never read before. This book was no exception. Or maybe it was THE exception. Because it became the ultimate reading experience. It had everything — and I do mean everything — that allows me to fully connect with a story to the point where I'm breathing in its words. And by the end, I was utterly breathless.
Our heroine, Sydney — a creative and loving girl with an adorably dainty violent streak — has been betrayed and is left to pick up the scattered pieces of her now lonely life.
Enter our hero, Ridge -- a musically inclined, selfless, compassionate, sexy -- and well, I just dare you to not fall in love with him and we'll leave it at that.
Sounds like the groundwork for a typical new adult love story, right? Well, I can assure you it is NOT. In this case, I cannot give away plot details because not knowing is a vital part of the experience, but I will say that this story incorporates a topic unique to anything I've read, and definitely places a heartwarming spin on the plot. Best part is: I never saw it coming. So here are some gentle details: The plot really narrows in on the connection between its characters; a connection formed through the medium of music.
There are moments that will make you laugh, and there are moments that will break your heart. However, its unpredictable twists will only make you that much more invested in the story.

The "romance" is slow-building and as intense as it is complicated. The story is delivered through alternating dual perspectives, so we really get a solid feel for the journey of both characters.
There's plenty of sexual tension to go around, but not offered to the point of frustration. Everything is delivered in the perfect dose, and this book really persuades you to open your heart and your mind as a reader To except what you typically wouldn't. To understand what you normally couldn't. To see things from a new, unbiased perspective. To leave all judgment at the door while stepping into this book, because you WILL be granted a view to both sides of the coin.
There is no wrong or right way to fall in love--it just happens. And sometimes certain obligations take precedence over that love I'm not giving away the story here, but if you only desire only a happy story that leads seamlessly into a perfect relationship, consider looking elsewhere for your next read. Although this review has been intentionally vague, I can almost guarantee that you'll fall hard for this incredible cast of characters, and that this book will stay with you long after reading.
It does everything BUT disappoint, and if you give this amazing story a chance, you'll see why. The level of angst isn't magnified and there are no bad intentions. There is no "one" person who is "mean", whom you wouldn't mind having out of the picture. Simply said: But in different ways. The love triangle is, at times, heartbreaking, but also beautiful To repeat myself: Book Stats: Slow building. Strong, feisty, lovable heroine. Sweet and gentle, sexy hero.
Uniquely and gorgeously developed. Character driven. Alternating, dual perspectives. I'm going to work my way through some of the popular New Adult books and see if I can weed out the crap and hopefully find some surprising gems.
Here's hoping! You know, I promised myself something before starting this book: Neither actually happened. I finished this book and I enjoyed parts of it.
I hated others. I only picked the arc up out of curiosity because, as much as I disliked both the author's other books, there was a HUGE improvement in the writing between Slammed and Hopeless. In fact, I even mentioned in my review of the latter that it was almost a good book. What stopped it from being a good book was the glorifying of control freaks and stalker-ish behaviour. I felt a similar way about Maybe Someday. It was almost a good book and it was definitely better than the other two I've read.
I'm starting to think that, if this pattern persists, Hoover might actually write a book I love in about five years time. There's a reason I managed to read every single page of this with ease and it's the same reason I made it through Hopeless - the author writes in an addictive, engaging style.
Some people just manage to pull this off and make it seem effortless. It's so easy, so palatable, that you manage to finish it without realising where all the pages went.
Hoover definitely deserves credit for that, if nothing else. I think I keep returning to this author because I know she writes so well.
The main things I liked: Apart from what I mentioned above about the author's addictive easy-to-read style, I also liked the guy in this a lot more than in Hoover's previous works. Dean Holder from Hopeless managed to freak me out and piss me off simultaneously. He was a tall, gorgeous message to teen girls that stalkery, predatory behaviour is absolutely fine when the person doing it is hot. I mean, how much stupid is in this quote: He's sweet, he's a musician, he's completely free of Douchebag Syndrome.
Oh, and he's also deaf. Personally, I thought this was an interesting and original touch that was explored well and sensitively. Very few hearing-impaired protagonists exist, never mind sexy love interests and I really liked this unique view of a relationship where one person is unable to hear the other. They communicate a lot via text and facebook, which was also different. Where did it all go wrong?
The same place it always seems to go wrong in the New Adult genre: I admit that I almost DNF'd this book after the prologue because Sydney the MC calls another girl a whore on page one, and then a few pages later has an encounter with a bitchy girl who - surprise!
I don't know why she's complaining about getting wet, when there isn't much clothing to get wet. She's wearing next to nothing. I glance at her shirt, which is missing its entire bottom half, and realize she's in a Hooters outfit. Could this day get any weirder? I'm sitting on almost everything I own in a torrential downpour, being bossed around by a bitchy Hooters waitress.
But, unfortunately, it doesn't stop there. I'm starting to wonder if this whole slut-shaming thing in NA is a group conspiracy. It seems to be a defining feature of the genre. Once again, every woman is Sydney's enemy and they are all "whores" or "sluts" who are unfavorably compared to our "good girl" MC.
The book is saturated with language that either openly shames other women or snidely implies it. Like, for example, calling Tori "Barbie" - a word which is meant to emphasise the difference between the sexualized depiction of Tori and Sydney's good and pure behaviour.
At one point, Sydney even doubts that Bridgette Hooters girl has it in her to love anyone. There is often a direct connection in these kind of books between being evil or "bitchy" and sleeping around.
I feel like I'm being hit in the face with Sunday school. You will probably like this book if: View all 75 comments. Maybe not right now. Maybe not tomorrow. But maybe someday. Colleen Hoover is one of those authors that never disappoints. I loved every chapter, every page, every word of Maybe Someday. Sydney just caught her boyfriend of two years cheating on her. With her best friend.
There is something about Ridge that draws Sydney to him. She becomes the fourth roommate in a uniquely crazy trio, until she can get back on her feet. Sydney and Ridge spend time together and connect over music. She is a muse to Ridge, inspires him to play and helps him with lyrics. They work well together. Some refer to them as soul mates.
Some refer to it as true love. I say unusual, because you LOVE all three people in it. Who do you root for? There were parts that broke my heart.
I will never ever leave her. I love her. How much he fought his feelings for Sydney Despite how hard we tried to fight it, all those things happened between us because our feelings for each other are becoming so much stronger than our desire. Desire is easy to fight. Especially when the only weapon desire possesses is attraction.
Sydney liked and respected Maggie and never wanted to go there. She also never pushed Ridge to break up with her. But by the end, I was left in happy tears. Ridge was sweet, sexy, devoted and kind. Sydney was fun, strong and incredibly patient and understanding. Then there was Warren. There were times he pretty much stole the book. He was hilarious, but he had other sides. I hate cock blockers, and I refuse to be one. But if anyone makes you uncomfortable, just look at me and give me a signal so I can swoop in and pull you out of the situation.
He was just too funny! I also want to comment on the music. I loved how much the story centered on the music and the connection these two character shared through it. Her words just have this flow.
Her writing is just flawless. Heartwarming, heartbreaking, powerful and moving. I fell in love with this book. I loved how unpredictable it was. And I'm not sure how it's possible, but she delivered the perfect ending. View all 87 comments. Sep 17, Lola rated it liked it Shelves: Sydney did go through all of these emotional states because of Ridge.
It almost felt like Ridge being apart of a music group was not even the reality since not much actually proved it, except for him playing guitar, writing songs and sharing some related info with his brother who was in of the group as well..
Ridge is a good guy, really.
I found this one heartbreaking and not in the good sense. A wonderful wonderful one. But so do Ridge and Maggie.
Putting the love-triangle element aside, I must admit that the romance was cute and adorable. Plus, very realistic. I really felt how much Sydney and Ridge care for each other and that what they have is rare. Still, I was always a little unsure of if I should really agree with them connecting so much since it felt unfair to Maggie. The writing was very pretty and a little more fast-paced than Hopeless which was very slow, even though I did like it better. I loved the song lyrics.
And the fact Sydney has such a natural talent in writing them was incredible. She was born with this gift. View all 94 comments. Nov 25, Angela rated it it was amazing Shelves: Everything has been so good!
Second I've been on a total Colleen Hoover kick. Third I think going into a book completely blank and with the smallest amount of information about the novel is the way to go. I picked up Maybe Someday only knowing that it was a story about a girl who falls in love with her musician neighbors and I assumed they hit it of "I need someone who is willing to watch me brave the ocean and then dare me not to drown I picked up Maybe Someday only knowing that it was a story about a girl who falls in love with her musician neighbors and I assumed they hit it off.Impossibly painful, heart-wrenching choices and still You know how you get comfortable with someone and they have other problems and you feel you can't leave them.
You can never go wrong with a Colleen Hoover book. I feel like I'm being hit in the face with Sunday school. Sydney admires Ridge and thinks he is a musical genius. These two deserved each other!
