Review: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Add to Goodreads:
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…

Reading a book written by Colleen Hoover is an experience not to be taken lightly.  I am yet to read a book written by her that does not cause me to shed tears.  This is a good thing though because they are not necessarily tears born out of sadness, sometimes they are of happiness, elation and relief.
I guess what I’m saying is that this seriously talented author has a knack at weaving such amazing stories that make you ‘feel’.
It’s difficult to write a review for this story without giving away the key components of the plot so I will lead you into the beginning and leave it to you to discover everything that is great about this wonderful story.
Sydney lives in an apartment with her best friend Tori. She has just found out that her boyfriend of two years, Hunter, has been cheating on her with Tori.  She walks out on them with just a suitcase and having nowhere to go.
Ridge lives in the same apartment complex and offers her a place to stay, along with his other room mates.  Ridge writes songs and music for his brothers band but is going through a writers block at the moment. Sydney loves to write lyrics so she agrees to write for their band.  Sydney and Ridge really click musically and have a unique connection.  As their friendship develops, lines begin to get blurred and words unspoken are being felt by both of them.
The unique thing about this story is that every song they write is real.  Colleen Hoover has collaborated with Griffin Peterson and you can purchase the album that goes along with this book and enjoy the full experience of the wonderful music.
I give this 5++++++ heart beating stars
