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.


Now. This. Is. How. You. Write. A Book.

Maybe Someday is just written beautifully. The thing about Colleen Hoover is she always gets to me through her books. The characters’ dilemma, the emotions, the circumstances . . . it feels like my own. It doesn’t feel like I’m an outsider witnessing the story. It feels like I am in the story, feeling it all along with the characters. You can’t go wrong with Colleen Hoover. She’s one of those authors that when she writes a book, you just know you’ll love it.

I’m pretty sure Maybe Someday is something you haven’t read before. The concept is very original and incredible.

Ridge Lawson isn’t your typical hero, but you’ll fall in love with him nonetheless. His loyalty is something that should be acknowledged by putting up a shrine of him in the White House. He’s someone I will give a million brownie points for. He’s sweet, caring, and has a cool sense of humor. I’m so glad that I get to see inside his mind on his POVs. He’s a breath of fresh air for me from all the perfect book heroes.

Sydney Blake is leading a contented life—a life away from her parents, living with her best friend in an apartment, having her boyfriend of two years with her almost everytime, being a music major like what she wanted instead of the prelaw her father wanted for her. But in a matter of minutes, she almost lost it all when she found out that her boyfriend was screwing her best friend. I like it that she doesn’t do the traditional cheek-slapping. It’s too girly for my taste, and I really admire her for throwing three punches in one night.

Sydney knows how it feels to have your boyfriend cheat on you, and she doesn’t ever want to do it to another girl. Ridge is loyal to a fault, and he never goes back to his promises especially to someone he loves. But the heart has no qualms about right or wrong. It just feels. Maybe Someday might be fictional, but it gives you a dose of reality and makes you understand some issues with the heart.

I love the characters’ banters and pranks. It’s something that makes me enjoy a book because too much drama and self-involved thoughts tend to get very boring fast. I love Warren. Everyone should have a Warren in their lives. His loyalty and friendship is something to treasure.

I also like it that Ridge and Sydney doesn’t have a problem being honest with each other. They don’t hide their feelings so they’re able to work through it and move forward. I love their song-making sessions; how they work with each other and produce wonderful compositions. Colleen Hoover has a way with words that makes me feel everything the characters are feeling.

I want to crawl inside this book and live there for maybe forever. It’s truly more than a book. When you read it and follow through the album as you delve into the story, it’s truly an enjoyable and unforgettable experience. This book lived up to its title. Such a beautiful, heart-wrenching thing telling the story of two-people falling in love with each other under complicated circumstances. Might be Colleen Hoover’s best yet.
