Seriously?? Hypocrite Sydney is still a saint, Cheater Ridge is the best boyfriend on planet Earth and everyone gets hitched on the same day after all that went down? What a load of bull.
2.5 stars, that too only for Maggie and the only decent boyfriend she's ever had!

My goodness, this was cheese-galore but I lapped it up like a dog.
I wasn't sure whether a sequel was needed. Maybe Someday ended pretty perfect for me.
But I'm so glad this story continued on. I loved getting to know the characters more. It wasn't just about Sydney and Ridge, but the others too and it was great to see their awkward dynamic come into play and seeing them handling that.

Be aware that the cheese is hard, people. Well, my definition of cheese anyway. It's been grated on every page

I can’t believe I didn’t know this book existed until today, it was such a delight to continue reading all of these characters stories. I have to say I love each and every single character in the maybe someday world and I’m so happy that I finally read this.

Maybe Someday was never my favorite Coho book, but I did love Maybe Not. Since I read EVERYTHING Coho writes, I wanted to give this book a shot. I enjoyed it, but there were many points when I considered dnf-ing mostly because I wasn't interested in the story.

Maybe Now takes place close to the end of Maybe Someday. In this book we get 4 perspectives, it was nice to see Maggie's perspective on things because I always felt she was left out of the situation. Like I said, I enjoyed this boo

Did I feel the need to have a new book about the characters from Maybe someday? No, I did not.
Did I read said book anyway because I’m trash and I would read everything Colleen Hoover decides to give us? Well yes, of course I did read it!
This book was okay, it didn't feel that special to me. I'm just happy to have read it because Maybe someday is my favourite Colleen Hoover's book and so I had to see what the characters were up to.

****spoilers from the first book will be mentioned*****

Colleen Hoover basically took my all time favorite couple and ruined them beyond repair. In my opinion it was also an awful interpretation of a person living with CF and I feel bad for anyone with CF reading this book. You could tell by the end even Colleen must hate this book since after taking months off from writing it she came back and rushed the ending with such unbelievable events that it was like a 14 year old writing amateur fan fict

I was curious if this new Colleen’s story on Wattpad after the awesome Too late. I was happy to see Maybe Someday’s characters again, and not very happy to see that Ridge and Sydney’s problems with Maggie were not resolved at all. She’s too related to them, I can’t be friend with my lover’s ex, sorry.
Jake is my new crush and I would love to see more of him and his story. But I think after a long break, Colleen was fed up with this story and fans crazy reactions, so she ends it in a sweet but to

I'm not one for books that are released by chapter or newsletter - mostly's an excruciating wait especially when you read 2-3 books a week. I've been trying to just wait until the whole book is released and that's what I did with this one and I'm glad I did. Plus I can't really complain when the author makes them free. (thank you CH)

I really love Ridge and Sydney together and I couldn't wait for more of them. What I didn't
This story is a follow up to where Maybe Someday ends. If you haven’t read that book, I don’t recommend starting this one until you do. However, it’s not necessary to read the novella, Maybe Not, in order to enjoy this one, though I did.

Now that Ridge’s relationship with Maggie has ended, he and Sydney are fully exploring the new freedom to give into their true feelings. However, he and Warren are Maggie’s only support system and now what should that look like, be like? Maggie is enjoying her n

This was a good sequel but it wasn't really needed, I mean it's always nice to read about the characters you love but yeah, an okay sequel :)

This was almost sickeningly sweet. I could have done with less Maggie and more Ridge & Sydney (and Warren & Bridgette!). It would have been nice to see how their relationship evolved without the constant presence of Ridge’s ex in their lives. ...more

Maybe Someday is easily one of my favorite Colleen Hoover novels, though that’s not saying much since I’ve LOVED everything she’s written. So when I discovered Maybe Now I couldn’t have been happier. Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy Maybe Now nearly as much as its predecessor.

Maybe Now is told from three different perspectives: Sydney, Ridge, Maggie, and Jake. As much as I liked being able to read from Maggie’s perspective, I didn’t enjoy her chapters as much as either Sydney and Ridge’s chapters.

This was such a nice, feel-good continuation to Maybe Someday. It was really good to see the aftermath of Ridge and Sydney’s relationship unfold, and also get Maggie’s point of view. I loved seeing her get her happy ending, since she deserved it the most. I adored all these characters SO MUCH. It’s been a while I’ve read books that made me feel so... happy.

This however was a tad bit too underwhelming and not as consuming as the first book. I guess it was meant to be like that - less dr

Maybe Someday is still my favorite CH book, so I was beyond thrilled when I knew that the sequel was finally going to happen.
I may be biased here because I love Ridge and Sydney together, but their part of the story I really really like it. Their relationship was perfect to me. What I didn't like was some (very drastic) changes to Sydney's personality that were... not very believable.
Then we have Maggie. It was ok her part. I enjoyed getting to know more of her but it was an extra to

4-sticky sweet wonderful stars!
CoHo draws you in with a heartwarming story full of emotion that follows the lives of 6 friends with different backgrounds through 3 books.
In the end, it brings a satisfying closure to the friends that were looking for someone to make them feel complete and can now look to the future.

My one complaint might be that Sydney cries a lot ... I get it ... but she could have toned it down just a bit. ;)

Free on Wattpad.

I gave this book a star because 1) I must give it at least a star 2) It was free on Wattpad and that was very nice. my low rating comes from the fact that:

A) Sydney becomes this odd caricature of herself that is oddly obsessed with/protective of her boyfriend's ex girlfriend. Like she is completely fine with said ex moving in with her boyfriend and her and the ex are completing bucket lists together ob

I love everything that Colleen Hoover writes. So I was very excited to get to see what happened to Ridge, Sydney and Maggie after Maybe Someday ended.

Maybe Now is a sequel to the popular Coho book Maybe Someday. It was written on wattpad one chapter at a time. This means that the story is basically a bit of a rough draft and not edited. But it was still really good.

I had previously read the first 26 chapters of Maybe Now. But then Coho stopped writing it for a short while. Now that th

Still in love with the characters, still one of my favorite books.

Original review:
This is what I expect and long for with Colleen Hoover's books.
This was just as captivating as the first part "Maybe Someday". I was immeadiately drawn into Sydney and Ridge's story as I was a few months ago. Their connection is so special and based on a really fundamental and subtle kind of communication that is so endearing. The parts that give more insight in Maggies POV is refreshing, confirms wh
One star for Warren and Bridgette being their hilariously awesome selves, the other characters were unrecognizable. This book served no purpose and very nearly ruined Maybe Someday for me. The ending was extremely lazy and rushed and broke my cheese radar. Did not feel like CoHo writing sadly.

Ahh that ending was perfect!! I do wish we got an epilogue Of Vegas though, but after waiting for months for how everything was going to turn out, it was definitely worth it!

If you don’t know what this is, it’s the sequel to Maybe Someday up on Colleen Hoover’s Wattpad! I’ve been following her updates since the beginning and it was so much fun reading along side everyone. Such a cute story with some drama and heartache thrown in just enough to make a classic Colleen Hoover book. So much love!

Maybe now
Syd and Ridge are together but together means dealing with maggie still and her CF. Maggie is sort of moving on with her supposed one night stand that was just too good for one night but Ridge will always be the one for her.
It was beautiful and dramatic, music filled wonderfulness and filled with rip your heart out love and I loved it.
And that ending was how every perfect contemporary should end. It had me awwwing and absolutely happy.
