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.

No amount of emotional or mental preparation has really prepared me when I started reading this book. This has been the only Colleen Hoover book I've stalled reading because of the mixed reviews I've seen. I was so paranoid and scared to even get started on it especially with how people have reviewed this story that I even thought someone died in this book. At some point, I even questioned if Colleen Hoover would even disappoint me with Maybe Someday. 
I won't bore you with details of what Maybe Someday is all about because that's what blurbs are for. I do have a lot of things to say though about this book.
I have been under an extreme amount of emotional stress almost 80% of the time while reading this. Love triangle and cheating are two of the four things I do not want to ever read in a book (in case you're curious, the other two are death and rape). And it happened to me before that I didn't finish a book because the cheating was just so frustrating and just got the best of me but Maybe Someday isn't like that. The reason why I powered through reading this book was because I wanted to see if there was even a happy ending for these characters. 
This story made me questioned myself whether why something that started so wrong and was still wrong most of the time felt so damn right. It made me question myself why I was rooting for the wrong. But then again when two people who are obviously in love but can't be together because sometimes life sucks will make you cheer for them. Cliche as it may sound but people in love deserve a damn break, you know? 
This book is filled with just enough humor and a whole lot of heartache that I think when people read it their favorite things in life should always be at arms reach to comfort them a little. I'm serious. This story is also filled with so much love, selfless love, painful love.
I think Colleen Hoover has captured really well and put into words and music how difficult it is to fight and control your feelings, how hard letting go is and how some things and some people you want so bad stay in your life but just can't. And for that she didn't disappoint me. For all the frustration and emotional stress my heart has been up to the entire time I was reading this, I think the last 10 pages of the book more than made up for it. 


Here is my playlist!
Sam Smith - Make It To Me
Sam Smith - Leave Your Lover
Matthew Perryman Jones - Out Of Reach

I have been having a Sam Smith moment to the point that I was humming the songs from this book to Leave Your Lover. I don't think I can give enough justice to make a Maybe Someday playlist because Griffin Peterson already did that. I can always try though.
