My opinion:
I
think if you’d made me choose — like with a gun pointed at my head — just a
book from my favorites, it would most likely be one written by Colleen Hoover.
This woman is off-the-charts with her writing skills! She mesmerizes me with
every book and she completely breaks my heart time after time, only to sew it
back together in the most beautiful way with her gorgeous happy endings.
Maybe Someday is no different. It’s one of
her best books up to date and that’s quite something since I adore every single
one of them. This book is an exquisite blend of romance, drama and heartbreak
and I couldn’t stop reading.
“Hey, heart. Are you listening? You and
I are officially at war.”
It
starts abruptly in a moment where Sydney’s life is crumbling before her eyes,
but we’re quickly transported two weeks prior to that date so we can understand
what’s truly happening. Sydney had a job, a roommate who was also her best
friend, and a boyfriend. But she found a little bit of rest, peace and
happiness on her balcony, listening to a guy across the complex playing the
guitar. Soon enough, she starts writing some lyrics to his songs and he asks
for them. He’s whipped on spot.
When
the disaster happens and she learns that her boyfriend had been cheating on her
with her best friend, she’s got nowhere else to go. But the guy playing the
guitar comes to her aid and welcomes her in his home. Oh, and his name is Ridge
*swoon*
That’s
where I draw the line. I’m not saying anything else about the plot and story
cause it’s really amazing and should be experienced firsthand.
“Nothing in my life has ever felt so
good yet hurt so achingly bad.”
But
I’m gonna ramble about the characters a bit. Well, we’ve got Sydney. She’s
fierce in her own way — she has a spark that has you instantly rooting for
her. But she’s flawed, just like a real person. Funny, responsible, witty and
kind, she made an awesome main character and her journey more entertaining.
“I don’t want to be someone’s second
choice.”
Ridge.
Whom I whole heartedly adore and worship behind any hope since he’s, you know,
quite fictional. But oh, he’s had a hard life and my eyes just got misty
whenever another piece of his story clicked into the bigger picture. He’s kind
and so goddamn selfless! He’s intelligent and talented. Calculated and driven. Loyal,
dedicated and ambitious. And, might I say, too hot and smexy for his own good.
Add a funny and honest personality and you’ve got the perfect boyfriend. *sigh*
“I…will never…regret you.”
Warren
was simply great. He cracked me up, but also made me swoon at his friendship
with Ridge. And another fact that just added to his awesomeness was his
evolving relationship with Sydney in the last part of the book.
Maggie
was a character I admired completely. She’s so tough and independent and just
top-notch in terms of sweetness and goodness.
Hunter
and Tori. They’re not worth mentioning actually, but I just had to send them a
message: you suck.

The
romance between Sydney and Ridge was so simple, and I mean that in a good way!
Their feeling, although some won’t agree with me, were entirely pure. I adored
how they just seemed to click. They supported each other. They worried about
each other on a constant basis. And they always seemed to embrace their inner
selves and real desires when they were together. Also, the honesty between
these two truly bewildered me. It’s not something you see these days and their
no-filter relationship only amplified their bond.

“For her I bend, for you I break.”

Also,
Colleen Hoover, may I say you’re just the goddamn queen of twists?! Because
there were some I didn’t expect at all — especially the first one, which
completely made me reconsider my entire life. It came out of nowhere and I was
left doing a double-take on the same paragraph. Very sneaky…
Maybe Someday made me uncomfortable at
some point, but that’s really the beauty of it. It gave me a story from another
angle and that only intensified the line between good and wrong, black and
white. Although this book is full of grayish areas. I know I don’t make any
sense, but after you’ll read the book you’ll totally get it.
Oh,
I almost forgot about something reallyyyy important. The freaking lyrics! They
were so complex and intricate and matched the story of our couple so well! I was
compelled to listen to the song over and over again, memorizing the words as I
went. It was just the magical drop to achieve perfection.

To
sum up, this is yet another gorgeous story by Colleen Hoover. The drama she
delivers will make your heart ache, but you’ll gladly accept it for some
romance between Ridge and Syd. And it’s truly different from anything else. The
lyrics were awe-inspiring, the characters amazing, the story simply wonderful
and unique. I cannot recommend this enough.

ENJOY! ©
