Sydney is living in an idyllic bubble—she’s a dedicated student with a steady job on the side. She lives with her best friend, has a great boyfriend, and the music coming from the balcony opposite hers is fast becoming the soundtrack to her life. But when Sydney finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her, the bubble bursts. The mysterious and attractive man behind the music, Ridge, gives Sydney hope that she can move on and they begin to write songs together. But moving on is harder than she expects, Sydney can only hope….
Colleen Hoover draws you in to this passionate tale of music, love and betrayal…
Sydney is having a rough 22nd birthday. She found out her roommate and her boyfriend of two years have been going behind her back, she lost her job, and doesn’t have a place to stay. But thanks to Ridge, she now has a roof over her head.
Ridge is her mysterious neighbor who lived across the courtyard of her apartment complex. He is a musician who likes to play his guitar outside on his balcony and Sydney never misses her chance to sit out the and listen to him play. He one night asks her to send him lyrics that she made up to one of his songs. She does and he instantly wants more. He’s in a band and he is having a rough patch with writing. But he also catches her roommate and boyfriend on her balcony. He doesn’t tell her at first but once he does,everything goes crazy.
Sydney finds herself staying with Ridge at his apartment. It’s there that he tells her he’s deaf. His friends are funny. Warren is always pulling pranks and the first time be met Sydney, he wrote on her forehead with a marker.
Ridge and Sydney’s story is heartbreaking. Ridge has a girlfriend, Maggie, and is completely devoted to her. But at the same time, you can see the love between him and Sydney develop. Their love for music connects the two of them in a way that is beautiful and raw.
Just like every other Colleen Hoover book, my heart overflowed with sadness and happiness and so much love. These two characters are so well written and their love story isn’t your typical “girl meets boy and they fall in love” story. Maybe Someday is a story about two people falling in love at the wrong time. Love doesn’t always happen when it should and sometimes people who are meant to be together, have issues with timing along the way. Their story, to me, was real. I felt many emotions for these two characters.
I really enjoyed this book. I laughed, I cried, I got angry…every emotion caught up with me at least once while reading Maybe Someday. The characters were relatable and the plot was beautiful written. Every time I read a Colleen Hoover book, all I want to do is fall in love. I know some say that “it’s just a book” but I rather spent my life waiting for my Ridge to come than settle for a Hunter.
