description
Sydney did go through all of these emotional states because of Ridge.

I’m not saying that it’s a bad thing…but there sure was a lot of drama in this story. I didn’t see much of the exterior world or even the music industry. It almost felt like Ridge being apart of a music group was not even the reality since not much actually proved it, except for him playing guitar, writing songs and sharing some related info with his brother who was in of the group as well..

Ridge is a good guy, really. He’s loving, caring, thoughtful…but also acting in a contradictory way now and then which is not necessarily a problem but the moments he chose to act that way were infuriating.

Basically, I did not like the love-triangle, and that’s not because I don’t like love-triangles in general. No. I found this one heartbreaking and not in the good sense. Also, I didn’t appreciate how the author made us love Maggie (Ridge’s girlfriend) and make us see how they both care for each other, especially Ridge, when we all know that having Sydney coming into his life (after her boyfriend cheated on her and needed a place to stay) was not going to do good in that relationship.

I can’t deny that Sydney and Ridge have a beautiful chemistry because they do have one. A wonderful wonderful one. But so do Ridge and Maggie. Putting the love-triangle element aside, I must admit that the romance was cute and adorable. Plus, very realistic. I really felt how much Sydney and Ridge care for each other and that what they have is rare. Still, I was always a little unsure of if I should really agree with them connecting so much since it felt unfair to Maggie.

The writing was very pretty and a little more fast-paced than Hopeless which was very slow, even though I did like it better. Though, I’m not going to compare Maybe Someday to Hopeless since that would be crazy; they’re both such different stories!

There weren’t many side characters really present in the plot and I, to be honest, wanted to meet Sydney’s parents because she mentioned them two or three times and I was curious to witness what kind of relationship they really share and see how they interact with one another.

I loved the song lyrics.

They’re different from song lyrics I listen to normally. And the fact Sydney has such a natural talent in writing them was incredible. She was born with this gift.

I do recommend it for readers who look for a romance-filled New Adult story, an emotional one and for those who think that this kind of love-triangle won’t bother them at all.

-ya I didn't like this storyline and the whole triangle plot. That said, I still remember the plot, the characters, and those scenes that pissed me off;)
Great review, Lola!


Lola Yeah, the triangle was not very enjoyable :( Thank you, Ya!! :)


Jasmine Superb review Lola! ♥♥ I'm glad you still loved it to some extent :D I also agree that the love triangle in this one was quite hard to read :( Especially when Maggie is such a lovable character. Btw did you know there is a separate epilogue for Maggie's character? :)


Lola No, I did not know that!! Really didn't. :O I loved Maggie! Thank you, Jasmine!! xoxo

YAY!! Please do read it! :D I really enjoyed it eventhough it's just an epilogue chapter, at least it gives a better closure and a deserved ending for her ;) ♥♥


Lola Okay, I will for sure now! Really intrigued! Thank you! :D

Ilze Great review, Lola! Sorry to see that was only 3 stars for you. I hear you about the Maggie thing, but I felt like she never really fitted with Ridge, so I kind of easily justified the (view spoiler)

haha yeah I thought the same thing at first but then when his friend told us about how much he fought for her I kinda got really impressed and emotional on how much she loves her so wanted Sydney out of the picture ahah. Thank you :D

You know, I can normally take love-triangles but this one...this one I couldn't. It was too devastating. Aww, that is so nice, thank you :D xx

SAME HERE! I'm usually proud to say I don't mind love-triangles hahaha because there are so many books that are available for me to read that way but this one I hated. :/


Lola Elise wrote: "Fabulous review, Lola :D I'm considering reading this book, but I'm not a huge fan of love triangles and too much drama.. But who knows, perhaps I'll read it in the future :)"

And a lot of romance and sweet talk. I think you would at least enjoy it (I did) but yes the love-triangle was abominable. :(

There are a lot of stereotypes in this book so I can understand why someone wouldn't like it and not many different settings at all. Bref, it wasn't perfect at all. Thank you :D
