Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover, Review by Dee

My rating: 5 of 5 hearts

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

I think colleen Hoover just made Me fall in love with love all over again with this book. amazingly beauitful is the only way I can think to describe this book. its so full of raw emotion. not only love, but theres also so many times I found myself smiling or laughing at their antics, crying from heartbreak. I also found my hear breaking for Ridge and the situation he was in. I didn't want to like the situation they were in. I didn't want them to fall in love. I found myself begging the story to let them be together without hurting Maggie. Without hurting Ridge. I mean Colleen can't be that mean that she would keep two people so destined to be together, apart.. Right?? So people clearly perfect for one another. And believe me I cried. And I felt like it wasn't just like I cried, I think my heart cried. Is that possible? Can your heart cry? Well I am pretty sure mine did. I was so in love with Ridge and Sydney. I am so in love with them. I sometimes find myself needing to walk away from romance novels. Then I read a book like this that is so incredible, I fall in love with love all over again. I don't know if any of this review makes sense. But I feel like this book was the sun coming out after a long, hard storm. It's the flowers blooming after a hard winter. It's absolutely beautiful. It's amazing. I find myself asking can a love like that really exist? God I hope so. And THAT is what Colleen gave me with this story. Hope. Going through a divorce I gave up hope on love. And as odd as it may seem, I feel like this story somehow gave it back to me. I'm in no way 22 or a songwriter. But I'm broken. And I feel like what happened with Ridge and Hunter broke Sydney a little, broke her heart for anyone after Ridge. So I related. Somehow Colleen managed to give some of that hope for happiness after heartbreak back. As I write this review I find myself crying. Not sad tears but, like Sydney, tears just because it's an moment full of so much emotion. I can't recommend this book enough. I can't say enough good things. You will love all the characters. You will love their relationships. Their personalities. Their interactions. And believe it or not, You actually find yourself liking Warren by the end. I know, I know. But believe me. You will.

I gave this 5 hearts
