At 22 years old, Sydney has a great life: She’s in college; working a steady job; in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter; and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter's cheating on her - and she is left trying to decide what to do next.

Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to his playing his guitar every day out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.…

"Listening" with Your Heart

First off, I have to applaud Colleen Hoover for creating the unconventional main character of Ridge who is strong, positive, talented and happens to be deaf.

I listened to this story critically because I am fluent in sign language and work with children who have a hearing loss. I was uncertain how authentic Ridge's character would be and I couldn't help but wonder how his hearing loss would be perceived by others who consider themselves deaf. I am sure there are varying responses and opinions to his musical abilities and ways in which he communicated. I'm remaining neutral because I believe Hoover created an exceptional and loveable character and his inability to hear makes him extraordinary. I don't think she intended for Ridge to be typical in any way.

Sydney's character started off a bit shaky for me. I know she found herself in circumstances that made her angry and that fueled her to be a bit irrational. Name calling and punching people was immature (to a degree) and I thought this might be something that continued throughout the novel. I'm happy to say that it didn't. There's a lot of wavering between right and wrong in her mind and I found myself appreciating the ways in which rationalized and justified her feelings and actions. It all made sense whether you liked it or not.

I'm usually not interested in novels that include a love triangle, but this story wasn't what I expected. It had a strong undercurrent of good morals and respect with a focus on the internal, not the external attractiveness of a person. The messages in this story are also good ones: "listening" to the heart, not needing to be a hero to a woman who is already a heroine, giving yourself freedom and time to be alone to figure out what is right, etc.

As with her previous books, Hoover writes with great levels of emotion, angst, and humor (loved the pranks) not to mention that addictive quality that makes her books un-put-down-able. She takes what could be very predictable and twists it into something that is unique and bittersweet.

A bonus to this novel is the fact that it has an original soundtrack. All those songs Ridge and Sydney wrote are actual songs by Griffin Peterson. While I didn't purchase the Maybe Someday album, I did listen to all the samples on iTunes and found them to be a very complimentary, sounding better than I imagined them in my own mind. How cool is that?

Lastly, I have to say that the narrators for this book were really good, especially Zachary Webber who read as Ridge and really captured his quiet strength.

Book hang over after listening to this story!!!

If you could sum up Maybe Someday in three words, what would they be?

Incredible, Mind-blowingly Awesomeness

This novel Maybe Someday just blew my mine. I love everything about it from the beginning to the end. The story between Ridge and Sydney is so heartfelt that I felt everything they did while reading their story. Getting to hear the songs when I read them was incredible. I had bought Griffin Peterson's album before this book came out and I loved the songs and they way he sings them. Now reading the meaning of the songs brings happy tears in my eyes. I recommend buying the album and listen to it while reading this book because it brings the story to life. Yes this book will have you in tears and while reading it you will be consumed by the story and not be able to do anything until you have read the whole book. I love that Colleen Hoover writes these wonderful stories and her books are for every age group. Her stories are focused on the storyline and about real life situations which makes her stories the greatest.

What other book might you compare Maybe Someday to and why?

None to compare. This story is unique.

Have you listened to any of Zachary Webber and Angela Goethals ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to these narrators before. I loved the way they made these characters come to life and I felt emotions that I didn't when I read the story. You could hear the heartbreak when it happened and it made me feel a deeper emotion to the characters.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Loved everything about this book and it is one of my favorites. Yes I cried and laughed. My emotions were everywhere.

Any additional comments?

I love this story that Colleen Hoover created. I recommend that everyone who listens or reads this story, please listen to the songs that are in the book which is song by Griffin Peterson. He has a whole album called Maybe Someday which is the same name as the book.

Definitely my new favourite book!!

This book is by far the best I've ever read, it's so captivating with the emotional roller coaster of a storyline that tugs on your heartstrings I could read it again and again! The fact that there's a soundtrack to accompany it just takes this story to another level completely and it really draws you in being able to listen to the lyrics they write together put into actual songs instead of having them read by the narrator a bit awkwardly. This book is just on a completely different dimension and I would highly recommend it as it just has everything you could want from a story rolled into one, it's just sad when it comes to an end!

misleading catagory

Any additional comments?

I feel like I was misled into buying this book. After reading all the rave reviews, I thought I had found a new author to read, but don't be fooled, her books are young adult, not contemporary romance. I really wish Audible would list these teen romance novels in their own Young Adult category because they mainly appeal to young people. They remind me of the Judy Blume books I used to read when I was sixteen. After reading a few chapters I rolled my eyes and skipped ahead to the predictable ending. If you're over 21 you'll expect more.

Very Good Story

There are a lot of 5 star reviews for this book both here and on amazon and I agree with almost of them. This book has a very good story line.

Maybe Someday was almost entirelly written in the stream of conscienceless style and I have always found that style very hard going. Added to that is that there is so much angst in this story that I felt like I was running out of breath a couple of times. All that angst kept accumulating in my brain the way mud accumulates on your boots does when you walk across a muddy field after a wet spell.

On the up side I really liked the characters in this story and thought it was beautifully read. Both narraters did a wonderful job of breathing life into them. But I didn't want to spend so much time in Ridge and Sydney's heads. I wanted the story to be more about what they were actually doing and less time about what was going their heads.

OVERALL A BEAUTIFUL STORY!! GREAT HEA!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Maybe Someday to be better than the print version?

It always is, but only listened!!!

What did you like best about this story?

The loyalty and love of these friendships and heartfelt emotion!

What does Zachary Webber and Angela Goethals bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They were perfect...they brought the book to life!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did laugh a bit..and had the over all feels for both Ridge and Sydney!!

Any additional comments?

This was a buddy listen with my friend Pam...she loves her some Colleen Hoover..and this is the second book by Colleen that I have listened too. I cant say I loved this book, but I liked it quite a bit...the characters are a bit young for me...but the storyline was good...and it was unique to have a Deaf main character that was also a musician, I find that quite refreshing!

Sydney finds out her boyfriend and roomie are getting it on behind her back and punches them right in the face..Its her Birthday even...that really sucked for her...she is so heart broken! Ridge is a neighbor and they have been kind of friendly...she has even helped him write a few songs for his band...even if she doesn't feel they are very good...Ridge is quite impressed with them though....he likes Sydney and rescues her out of the rain after her confrontation with her roomie and Bf. He offers her a place to stay, and they have undeniable chemistry...when she finds out Ridge is deaf, she doesn't even bat an eye...that also impresses Ridge...but things get messy...Ridge has a long time wonderful girlfriend...but the heart wants, what the heart wants...

Good story, great narration and well worth your time and a credit!!!

Oh and there is a soundtrack that goes with the book, that is quite good and brings a little something extra to the story, I thought that was great too!!!

Better in Audio

Would you consider the audio edition of Maybe Someday to be better than the print version?

Maybe Someday is a book I gave four stars to when I read the ARC just before it was released. I was a little bit hung up with the cheating, thinking of cheating and waffling on both Ridge’s and Sydney’s parts. Especially because I enjoyed Maggie and I felt so bad for her, even if Ridge and Sydney never actually crossed the line and did cheat.

However, listening to Maybe Someday, with a male and a female narrator made the experience very different. I was drawn into their conflicting feelings, and the way they were both holding back for fear of hurting Maggie, even as they were hurting themselves. And since each chapter is from either Ridge or Sydney’s point of view, having two different narrators worked extremely well. I think I’d actually rather recommend the audio-version than the written book in the case of Maybe Someday.

Both of the narrators worked very well for me, and I’ll be looking for both of them when I search for more audiobooks to listen to. I know that Angela Goethals has narrated other books by Colleen Hoover, and she did an awesome job with Maybe Someday. Listening to the anguish the characters went through made my experience more haunting, and strangely, it was easier for me to idientify with Sydney when I could hear her telling me her story.

Also, the back and forth between the narrators made the chapter breaks in Maybe Someday smoother, and I enjoyed both of the narrators voices, their switches were truly seamless, and added something more to the story in my opinion.

Colleen Hoover does not disappoint!!

I have been on pins and needles waiting for the release of this book! It was so worth the wait and I could not stop listening once I started. I sacrificed an entire night’s sleep to go on this wonderful ride with Sydney and Ridge. The addition of having a soundtrack to the book was so amazing! Griffin Peterson brings all the songs he wrote in collaboration with Colleen Hoover to life. You MUST purchase the album if you are going to listen to or read this book. I guarantee it will be on repeat for days after you finish the story!!

Amazing emotional roller-coaster!

Narrators are awesome, especially Angela! LOVED IT THOROUGHLY. I already read the ebook version so I knew the story by heart. But I wanted to listen to Sydney and Ridge's emotional dilemma. I wanted to feel it. And I could feel it, in my bones. Thank you so much for this experience! I love you, Colleen. I love Angela and Zachary. Their voices blends with each other which is so amazing to the ears. Lastly, I love you, Audible.

Loved this book and has a unique romance!

Would you listen to Maybe Someday again? Why?

Possible, I thought the narrators did well and got the characters feelings and situations perfectly. There were times where Zachary Webber was trembling as if almost crying because Ridge was. Very well done and very well read.

What did you like best about this story?

The story was wonderful and unique with the romance yet still has the cheesy romance stuff which I felt okay with in this book. Because of the situation with Ridge and Sydney, we saw romance in a completely new perspective that was refreshing!

What about Zachary Webber and Angela Goethals ’s performance did you like?

Yup, loved it! Worked really well together! Would love to read more they've narrated and lucky for me Angela also narrated Hopeless by Colleen Hoover.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when Ridge cried but I won't say what about.

Any additional comments?

Just a really good book and I'm glad for my first audiobook it was an enjoyable one.

One dimensional

A story of a deaf young musician that concentrates on his sense of touch and his relationships, but makes nothing of building a visual for him or the listener. If I had to choose which character I would be, it would be Maggie, as at least she gets to go out of the apartment, the place where 99.9% of the book is set. The characterisation was weak with vague nods to back stories, and the repetitive use of the Heart motif gets boring. No twists in the story to surprise and an utterly obvious ending. Perhaps if I was 15 or 16 this love story would have me in raptures, but I'm not so this one is not for me.
