Maybe Someday is about main character Sydney who after finding out her boyfriend is cheating on her with her best friend and roommate no less, she temporarily moves in with handsome musician Ridge.
I have so much love for this book! I want to just go on and on and on about every single thing that I loved but I think my review would end up miles long here! Lets take the characters to start. This beautiful book is duel P.O.V so you really get to know both sides of the story from the two main characters Ridge and Sydney. Having this duel P.O.V really plays a big part in the story which I wont elabrote on for fear of spoiling it but It felt almost necessary to have Ridge’s side of the story in this one in particular.
Sydney’s character was easy to get to know and like in the beginning of the story. It was also easy to have an instant empathy towards her after she finds out her boyfriend and roommate have bee together behind her back. Seeing Ridge through her eyes in the beginning from a distance also sets you up for meeting him. Gorgeous and a musician Ridge appears to be the epitome of book boyfriendness with one exception his girlfriend Maggie.
There are some big issues in this story and one that is always either present or at the back of your mind throughout is cheating. I definitely don’t condone cheating under any circumstance however reading this story just magnifies how easy it is to be innocently seduced by a common bond and how that connection can grow into something more meaningful and complicated. One thing that sets this story line apart was the shear honesty from both Ridge and Sydney and their very admirable attempts to keep their emotions at bay.
Ridge and Sydney share an insanely intense musical connection which is so emotionally deep I could actually feel like it was pulling me towards them with a palpable magnetism. I love reading about their time spent together writing songs and making music and how singular their particular experience was. There is one huge element to this part of the story that intensifies it more than just a regular relationship but I wont give it away just keep your eyes peeled for it and prepare to be astounded.
There are a cast of secondary characters who we see through both Ridge and Sydney’s eyes which add to the overall story. Maggie Ridges girlfriend is perhaps the mot significant as she has her own complex life lending another element of sadness to this story. Throughout the story I started to resent her because I preferred the relationship that I could envision with Ridge and Sydney but at the same time I admired Ridge more and more for his kindness and loyalty towards Maggie particularly as the story started to unfold and you learned more about her circumstances.
I cannot tell you how much I loved this book in any other words that to simply say I adored it. I loved the characters writing style and story development throughout. I read it in one sitting and dare you not to do the same. Wow, just wow.
