MAYBE SOMEDAY by Colleen Hoover

Posted: March 27, 2014 by BA Dillon in BOYS are just BETTER in BOOKS (Romance and Indie Authors)


Colleen Hoover never ceases to amaze me. I finished this book … the first time, and just read it again. I also purchased Griffin Peterson’s EP, the Maybe Someday soundtrack, and I’m head over heels in love with it all. There’s more than romance here. It’s a story about morals, values, friendships, and choices. There’s a lesson or two as well. Prior to opening this ebook, I thought I had a pretty good idea of how this story would play out. I thought I read enough of Colleen’s teasers, and watched enough of the Youtube videos to know. Boy oh boy was I wrong! WRONG, wrong, wrong, wrong ….
To be honest, I was a bit worried when I first started reading this tale. I loathe love-triangles. I find it difficult to love the principle parts and impossible to sympathize with their plight. But Hoover is a genius, and she hit it out of the park again. The reason? Her love stories are built on a solid foundation of friendship first. I respect that. Add in a dose of beautiful music – and magic is made!
Griffin Peterson’s music has touched my heart in a way that’s difficult to explain. His soulful sound brings me to tears every time I listen to Let It Begin. The entire song collection is beautifully scripted to the story, and adds depth to the storyline.
This dialogue driven story is written so well, I finished it in one sitting. Ridge and Sydney are a reader’s dream. They’re far from perfect, but their imperfections make them easy to love. Their flaws are so easy to forgive. They both have a sense of humor that’s witty and clever – even when the situation isn’t funny. Finally, both Ridge and Sydney are selfless – a character trait difficult to find these days (both in books and the real world). As an avid reader, I always look for great secondary characters. They breathe life into the principle parts along with great dialogue. In Maybe Someday, Ms. Hoover also gives a Warren. I love Warren. I want Warren to be my best friend. He is the epitome of a best friend. He’s loyal, hysterical, over-protective, and free-spirited. No spoilers from this reviewer, but the last chapter completely blew me away. I think I’ve read it three times … maybe four. And by the way Colleen … I’m still listening to my heart.
