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.

I adore this author! When I found out that she was writing another book, I knew immediately that it was something I wanted to read ASAP.

Plot: This is about a girl who faces trouble in relationships. The plot moves at a steady pace enough for the reader to enjoy it. I was absolutely giddy about reading it. Everything flowed nicely from one chapter to the next and was explained well. I didn’t at all feel bored or feel lost. I felt like I was solidly in the characters shoes, experiencing everything as they were.

Love: This is the area of trouble. I don’t like cheating and this book takes a big chunk of it. These two becomes friends right after Syndey goes through relationship trouble. Right from the start, they hit it off. They are best of friends. Then they fall for each other. I can see how they can be perfect for each other but…(I may get some heat for this) but they cheated!! No matter how off the other relationship was, they should have stop it. Then again, I could say he just wasn’t right for her and they weren’t married so… all is fair in love and war!

Ending: Nevertheless, I still adored the book. I think the author did an amazing job in emphasizing the emotions of what could have been. The emotions of longing and breaking relationships. The emotions of letting go cause the timing is just not right. The emotions of waiting for the one that you love.

Maybe Someday captures the reader right away with an insightful read. It stretches beyond normal relationships and makes the reader question, what if? What if they had a chance? Where would they be? A fantastic read, Maybe Someday is an breathless adventure you won’t forget.

I give it 5 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    I’m with you. Cheating plots bother me. I think you need to end one relationship before starting another.
    Still, I have this ARC and I’m excited to read it.

    Hmmmm. This sounds like it might be tricky because cheating is a deal breaker for me usually. Then again, this is Colleen Hoover, so she might be able to get me to look past it. Thanks for the heads-up though, I always like knowing about things like that going in!

    Ooh I’m excited to read this one I loved Hopeless! I’m not sure about the cheating thing though I guess it depends how it’s played out. Glad you liked it, Savannah!

  4. I don’t like the cheating, but hm… you still enjoyed it. Maybe since now I know about it, it may not bother me as much. Will have to check out the book or at least get one by this author!

    I haven’t read any of her books yet but she had a signing for this yesterday. It was a ticketed event so I didn’t go, but it would have been fun. I’m not sure that I would like the cheating either, but I’m definitely curious about this!
