Review: 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.

Kristine's Thoughts:

Colleen Hoover does it again! I have always been a big fan so I find it crazy that it has taken me this long to read Maybe Someday. I bought it when it was released and it has been sitting on my kindle ever since. As I hang my head in shame I can finally say that I read it and loved every minute of it.

Without re-telling the story I can say that this book is filled with so much emotional turmoil that I had a lump in my throat for more than 3/4 of it. Do you know that ugly, painful lump that is only relieved by crying? Yes, that's the one. Hoover pens such a beautifully raw, emotional and sexy connection between Sydney and Ridge that it is just crazy. The chemistry between the two is off the charts and she does this with only one little kiss. In fact, it was there and would have been there even without the kiss.To be able to connect the characters to the reader the way that she does is incredible. I think that in some ways it was her beautiful story telling in the way that Sydney and Ridge communicated through music and text that did it for me.

Both Sydney and Ridge were wonderful characters that I enjoyed getting to know with each turn of the page. I loved, loved, loved Ridge! If I could special order one of him for my daughters I would! In fact, most of the characters were great. None of them were perfect, they all made mistakes and that's what made it easy to empathise and connect with them.

This is truly a beautiful story. How Hoover can continuously come up with such amazing NA stories is beyond me. I sure would like to get inside her head to find out. If you are a fan of this genre, don't wait as long as I did to pick up this book or any of her books like I did. You won't regret it.
