✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫

Maybe Someday was one of my favorite CoHo books so I was excited to get a little more of this story. What I loved about these characters it that they are not perfect, they make mistakes and they have jealousy and trust issues like real people. Yes they created their own issues but that is what makes it real for me.

This book had me giggling so many times, the sarcasm and banter was perfect. I love Ridge and Sydney but Warren and Bridgette take the cake on making me laugh. I loved seeing all of these characters get their HEA and find there way through all the drama.

The narration was good, I liked that they kept the same voices for the characters.

Disappointed- story never went anywhere.

Unfortunately I was left wanting much more after Maybe someday..I thought this book would focus on Maggie and tell her story and although you got diluted versions of it it was just not impactful to me. Too many conversations about nothing at all. Just didn’t arrive anywhere.

I was hoping for more fun and excitement for Maggie


I was hoping for more fun and excitement for Maggie

This is the book right after Maybe Someday.
I liked being able to find out what happens w/ these characters. There were things I absolutely loved and things I didn’t find authentic. I am a little disappointed that there wasn’t more of Maggie and Jakes progress of their relationship. I was hoping she’d meet this crazy fun adventurous guy who got her out to do all kinds of crazy stuff and we’d see them fl in love. It starts out like that but then we are never shown anything else like that again so she only spent one day doing something fun and outrageous. We didn’t really see their relationship grow either.
-Then the narrator who spoke for Jake made a weird noise w/ his S’s and he always sounded like he was reading instead of just being natural.
-I loved Warren and Bridget in this book!!! They were fantastic! Ridge was a sweetheart and a great book boyfriend to Sydney and I liked seeing their relationship grow more. That felt authentic to me. Butthere were things w/ Maggies condition and her dependency on Ridge that felt off to me and bugged me. Being an RN I have trouble when things don’t add up how I know they should. But thats just me being picky! Maybe Someday is such perfection though and this felt not as refined. Still good though. I don’t know maybe it’s just because things didn’t as I had expected and I’m being cranky about it. I might change this review later? 🤷‍♀️

Not what I expected from Colleen

Colleen Hoover is my absolute favorite author.. but this book was not my fave. I think there was too much back story, whining and repeating of stuff. I’m still anxiously awaiting her next book!

Easy read, but no real plot

Definitely a feel good book but there was very little conflict/plot. Just a story about ex’s becoming good friends with minimal drama. But it was a quick and easy listen.

Snoozefest

I really enjoyed Maybe Someday, but Maybe Now was really boring. No drama, no twists or turns. Took me a long time to finish the story because it really didn’t catch my interest too much.

Also, the guy who read Jake’s parts (Jonathan Ross) was awful. It sounded like he was reading a speech straight from a paper. The dialogue was terrible. It didn’t sound like he was talking to someone, it sounded like straight reading. I’ll have to make a note to not get any more audiobooks read by this guy.

The perfect addition to the Maybe Someday series! 5 beautiful stars!

Maybe Someday was my first “favorite” audiobook! The first time I listened to it I listened to it twice back to back. It has always been a favorite of mine, so when I seen that Maybe Now was out there were no words to how excited I was. Colleen Hoover writes magic, her words are poetry, and she did not disappoint! This book was so worth the wait! It was real, and beautiful, and made me soooo happy! I’m only sad that it ended! I can’t recommend this series enough!

Perfect in every way!

I thought Maybe Someday was my favorite and there was no way to top it, but boy was I wrong! I absolutely loved this book!!! it picks up right where Maybe Someday ends, how perfect right?!!
I love so much that we get Ridge & Sydney again too! it was a perfect mix between every character.
There was not enough about Maggie’s story since we got so much of it already so it was more about her finding peace and a life and love of her own.
It was about Ridge and Sydney fitting their lives together.
It was about Warren and Bridget growing.
So many things packed into one incredible book!!!

Thank you Colleen for this amazing story and bringing these wonderful people to life in so many ways!

I absolutely love how their lives are all intertwined and they all become best friends.

I cant remember being so happy and satisfied with a series in a long time!

The narration was perfect. I love that Ridge and Sidney have the same narrators, that really makes a difference!

Incredible

Maybe Now starts right were Maybe Someday ends, how awesome is this! I didn’t know what to expect going in but I can tell you I wasn’t expecting that.
This book takes the best parts of Maybe Someday and gives you bonus stories after bonus stories.

Ridge and Sydney navigating a new relationship, which is so OMG sweet. I love how it wasn’t as easy as one would think. It’s the tough stuff that makes you stronger and I think they did a good job at communicating and listening to the other person to make it work.

Maggie is and will always be a part of their lives and finding a new normal is not going to happen overnight. Seeing her understand that her illness isn’t just about her really made me think back to the first book. It made me appreciate her a little more I think because she really took a look at what others in her circle were trying to say.

Bridget and Warren omg these two crack me up and are soo, soo 100% made for each other. I love how unapologetic Bridget is she is just herself take it or leave it. Warren is still Warren gotta love the man.

I also loved getting more of the band and Ridge’s brother that was nice we didn’t really get much of them in the first book but we got more of them in this one.

I just love how these books make me feel like anything is possible.

The narration, I loved Zachary Webber in the first and I loved him in the second. He is Ridge to me. I wished Sydney’s narrator had been the same. Maggie’s voice in this book is who I picture Syd but that’s ok it works. Jake’s

Even better than the first book!

At first I was annoyed by Sydney's narrator... but after a while I didn't care that much. I quite like Sydney as a character but for me this book was more about Maggie. And I loved her parts. Ridge/Sydney romance was quite nice but nothing extraordinary has happened for them. Still I like that pairing. The best parts were Maggie's, as genuinely liked her as I got to know her more. Warren did not disappoint either being the goof of the group and still somehow helping them stick together. I even was fond of Bridget... weirdly enough.
Would recommend, enjoyable listen ;)

LOVED IT PERFECT ENDING FOR A PERFECT STORY

Maybe Someday, was a book that really affected me, It was a story that moved me, a story that made me realise the type of love I want in my own life. when I saw there was another book. Maybe Now. I was hesitant because I didn't want that perfect story to change because in my eyes it didn't even need anymore.
I was so so so happy I gave it a chance, this book was something I didn't even know I needed. a story that showed you life after the fairytail, that two people who truly love each other, can always make it through anything!
I'll forever this is story!
