Publisher's Summary

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends With Us comes a passionate tale of friendship, betrayal, and romance.

At twenty-two years old, Sydney is enjoying a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers that Hunter is cheating on her—and she’s forced to decide what her next move should be.

Soon, Sydney finds herself captivated by her mysterious and attractive neighbor, Ridge. She can't take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either. They soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.

Always a fan of Coleen Hoover!

I have read several of her novels now and I ALWAYS enjoy them, usually devouring them in a day.

I enjoyed this book, and I consumed it just as quickly, and it didn’t evoke all the emotions her other books usually do. Which isn’t a negative thing! I needed a slightly lighter read that wouldn’t leave me a crying mess.

Definitely recommend if you’re looking for a thoughtful romance book.

good

***spoilers ***


I am all up for corny and cheesy... but this takes the cake. I liked the characters but towards the end Syndney got really annoying. I dont know what else she could want. The love scene at the end was a bit much... what i want to know is what kind of earplugs those were because I want a pair....

overall it was good but too much.

A Must Have!!!


Colleen Hoover is a genus when it comes it writing. She's teamed up with Griffin Peterson(he was on American Idol). Have you ever listened to a song, and created the story in your head. Imagine that like 10X over, and on an overdose. This is one book I can listen to again and again and again and again.

Great Book!

The beginning was difficult to follow because of the voices changing so often. But it soon gets easier once the characters have been established.

"Listening" with Your Heart

First off, I have to applaud Colleen Hoover for creating the unconventional main character of Ridge who is strong, positive, talented and happens to be deaf.

I listened to this story critically because I am fluent in sign language and work with children who have a hearing loss. I was uncertain how authentic Ridge's character would be and I couldn't help but wonder how his hearing loss would be perceived by others who consider themselves deaf. I am sure there are varying responses and opinions to his musical abilities and ways in which he communicated. I'm remaining neutral because I believe Hoover created an exceptional and loveable character and his inability to hear makes him extraordinary. I don't think she intended for Ridge to be typical in any way.

Sydney's character started off a bit shaky for me. I know she found herself in circumstances that made her angry and that fueled her to be a bit irrational. Name calling and punching people was immature (to a degree) and I thought this might be something that continued throughout the novel. I'm happy to say that it didn't. There's a lot of wavering between right and wrong in her mind and I found myself appreciating the ways in which rationalized and justified her feelings and actions. It all made sense whether you liked it or not.

I'm usually not interested in novels that include a love triangle, but this story wasn't what I expected. It had a strong undercurrent of good morals and respect with a focus on the internal, not the external attractiveness of a person. The messages in this story are also good ones: "listening" to the heart, not needing to be a hero to a woman who is already a heroine, giving yourself freedom and time to be alone to figure out what is right, etc.

As with her previous books, Hoover writes with great levels of emotion, angst, and humor (loved the pranks) not to mention that addictive quality that makes her books un-put-down-able. She takes what could be very predictable and twists it into something that is unique and bittersweet.

A bonus to this novel is the fact that it has an original soundtrack. All those songs Ridge and Sydney wrote are actual songs by Griffin Peterson. While I didn't purchase the Maybe Someday album, I did listen to all the samples on iTunes and found them to be a very complimentary, sounding better than I imagined them in my own mind. How cool is that?

Lastly, I have to say that the narrators for this book were really good, especially Zachary Webber who read as Ridge and really captured his quiet strength.

misleading catagory

Any additional comments?

I feel like I was misled into buying this book. After reading all the rave reviews, I thought I had found a new author to read, but don't be fooled, her books are young adult, not contemporary romance. I really wish Audible would list these teen romance novels in their own Young Adult category because they mainly appeal to young people. They remind me of the Judy Blume books I used to read when I was sixteen. After reading a few chapters I rolled my eyes and skipped ahead to the predictable ending. If you're over 21 you'll expect more.

Definitely my new favourite book!!

This book is by far the best I've ever read, it's so captivating with the emotional roller coaster of a storyline that tugs on your heartstrings I could read it again and again! The fact that there's a soundtrack to accompany it just takes this story to another level completely and it really draws you in being able to listen to the lyrics they write together put into actual songs instead of having them read by the narrator a bit awkwardly. This book is just on a completely different dimension and I would highly recommend it as it just has everything you could want from a story rolled into one, it's just sad when it comes to an end!

Book hang over after listening to this story!!!

If you could sum up Maybe Someday in three words, what would they be?

Incredible, Mind-blowingly Awesomeness

This novel Maybe Someday just blew my mine. I love everything about it from the beginning to the end. The story between Ridge and Sydney is so heartfelt that I felt everything they did while reading their story. Getting to hear the songs when I read them was incredible. I had bought Griffin Peterson's album before this book came out and I loved the songs and they way he sings them. Now reading the meaning of the songs brings happy tears in my eyes. I recommend buying the album and listen to it while reading this book because it brings the story to life. Yes this book will have you in tears and while reading it you will be consumed by the story and not be able to do anything until you have read the whole book. I love that Colleen Hoover writes these wonderful stories and her books are for every age group. Her stories are focused on the storyline and about real life situations which makes her stories the greatest.

What other book might you compare Maybe Someday to and why?

None to compare. This story is unique.

Have you listened to any of Zachary Webber and Angela Goethals ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to these narrators before. I loved the way they made these characters come to life and I felt emotions that I didn't when I read the story. You could hear the heartbreak when it happened and it made me feel a deeper emotion to the characters.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Loved everything about this book and it is one of my favorites. Yes I cried and laughed. My emotions were everywhere.

Any additional comments?

I love this story that Colleen Hoover created. I recommend that everyone who listens or reads this story, please listen to the songs that are in the book which is song by Griffin Peterson. He has a whole album called Maybe Someday which is the same name as the book.

Very Good Story

There are a lot of 5 star reviews for this book both here and on amazon and I agree with almost of them. This book has a very good story line.

Maybe Someday was almost entirelly written in the stream of conscienceless style and I have always found that style very hard going. Added to that is that there is so much angst in this story that I felt like I was running out of breath a couple of times. All that angst kept accumulating in my brain the way mud accumulates on your boots does when you walk across a muddy field after a wet spell.

On the up side I really liked the characters in this story and thought it was beautifully read. Both narraters did a wonderful job of breathing life into them. But I didn't want to spend so much time in Ridge and Sydney's heads. I wanted the story to be more about what they were actually doing and less time about what was going their heads.

5 Someday Stars


Ok so I don’t really know how to review this book, it’s one of my all-time favorite books like ever. I have it in ebook and audio and I can’t even tell you how many times I have read/listened to this book more than 15 less than 20?

So to be honest I wasn’t going to review because so many have and I can’t do better job than me. But then I thought I don’t have to be better I just have to be me and honest.

I can’t say why this is my favorite, just that it is. Sydney and Ridge and Maggie because this story wouldn’t be the same without Maggie.
Maybe I liked that it wasn’t a 1 2 3 easy love and be done with it. Maybe I liked they all had to struggle with the truth. I don’t know!! Lol

Heck maybe because Griffin Peterson’s music and words helped bring this book to life in a way no other book did for me. I don’t know!!! All I know is Ridge is in my heart and he isn’t leaving any time soon.

Some of my favorite moments, scenes and or sayings.

First best opening line ever. To like any book I have read.

I loved the name Sounds of Cedar for one, but the scene where Ridge tells Sydney why he named the band that. Yeah that was powerful.

<i>“Inhale, exhale. Beat, beat, pause. Contract, expand.”</i> – Sydney

<i>“Heroines don’t need protecting.”</i> Ridge

<i>“Just say, When.”</i> – Ridge

I could go on and on but ya just read the book you will understand better then.. I hope. Haha

*All my Reviews are 100% honest and my own.*

There are not enough stars possible ...

BRILLIANT.... AMAZING.... PHENOMENAL...Colleen Hoover did it again. I finished it in one evening... loved the lyrics, so downloaded the cd and started over again. This is a must read, better yet, get the audio version. The narrator's provide so much emotion in the reading of the story...

I don't want to write any spoilers, but how Sydney and RIdge's lives intertwine is so incredible heart wrenching and warming at the same time. Also, Warren provides the right amount of comic relief. I have to place this as my #1 book to listen to this year. If I had as many stars in the sky to rate this book by, I would use every single one.

I absolutely loved this book

Any additional comments?

Ridge has a really hard time between choosing between his long time love and the one his heart wants. I really respected his character for fighting his feelings and being loyal. Yes he could of handled things better but he didn't.

This book it really worth the credit.

OVERALL A BEAUTIFUL STORY!! GREAT HEA!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Maybe Someday to be better than the print version?

It always is, but only listened!!!

What did you like best about this story?

The loyalty and love of these friendships and heartfelt emotion!

What does Zachary Webber and Angela Goethals bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They were perfect...they brought the book to life!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did laugh a bit..and had the over all feels for both Ridge and Sydney!!

Any additional comments?

This was a buddy listen with my friend Pam...she loves her some Colleen Hoover..and this is the second book by Colleen that I have listened too. I cant say I loved this book, but I liked it quite a bit...the characters are a bit young for me...but the storyline was good...and it was unique to have a Deaf main character that was also a musician, I find that quite refreshing!

Sydney finds out her boyfriend and roomie are getting it on behind her back and punches them right in the face..Its her Birthday even...that really sucked for her...she is so heart broken! Ridge is a neighbor and they have been kind of friendly...she has even helped him write a few songs for his band...even if she doesn't feel they are very good...Ridge is quite impressed with them though....he likes Sydney and rescues her out of the rain after her confrontation with her roomie and Bf. He offers her a place to stay, and they have undeniable chemistry...when she finds out Ridge is deaf, she doesn't even bat an eye...that also impresses Ridge...but things get messy...Ridge has a long time wonderful girlfriend...but the heart wants, what the heart wants...

Good story, great narration and well worth your time and a credit!!!

Oh and there is a soundtrack that goes with the book, that is quite good and brings a little something extra to the story, I thought that was great too!!!

Très touchant

Alors premièrement, maintenant que j'ai fini mon troisième audiobook en VO, je peux dire avec certitude que j'adore ça. C'est fou le nombre de choses qu'on peut réaliser en écoutant un livre!

Deuxièmement, j'ai adoré ce livre et toute l'expérience proposée à travers lui. Le fait que l'histoire soit proposée avec un album, et que les chansons écrites dans ce livre aient toutes été jouées et interprétées si joliment, c'est assez incroyable.

Troisièmement, l'histoire est du CoHo tout craché. On aime détester les personnages, et on déteste en aimer certains, et certaines situations sont horribles et malheureuses, mais les pauvres ne peuvent rien y changer, parce que c'est ça, la vie. Et c'est ça le pouvoir de cette auteure, c'est de plonger dans un monde où les personnages ne sont ni innocents, ni démoniaques, juste humains.

Average story, bad narration

The story was average, a bit too cheesy for my liking, but what made me dislike it the most was the narration. The two different narrators made it terrible to listen to, as they have two different tones, which resulted in having to constantly turn the volume up and then back down and up again, and so forth and so on, between each chapter. Not a good read.
