Sydney is living in an idyllic bubble—she’s a dedicated student with a steady job on the side. She lives with her best friend, has a great boyfriend, and the music coming from the balcony opposite hers is fast becoming the soundtrack to her life. But when Sydney finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her, the bubble bursts. The mysterious and attractive man behind the music, Ridge, gives Sydney hope that she can move on and they begin to write songs together. But moving on is harder than she expects, Sydney can only hope….
Colleen Hoover draws you in to this passionate tale of music, love and betrayal…
| I am a self-proclaimed CoHort! I don’t know what it is about Hoover’s writing that ensnares me, but it does. I have had this on my shelf staring at me for a while and finally, with the release of Maybe Now on Wattpad my sister has prodded me into reading this.
I ate it up because as always it features emotionally damaged characters which on some level always end up speaking to me. As always, too, I find some small issues with it – like how utterly unrealistically in touch with their emotions some of the guys can be, how they can be so *so* understanding to situations and always consider a female’s well-being. Okay, there are some guys out there like that but let’s be real… few and far between. 😉
But, in the end, it’s a book and it’s an escape not a HOW TO manual or something that we should take overly seriously outside of how it impacts us emotionally. It’s fiction, not non-fiction.
In the end, I still like the story and how it highlighted the deaf community, how it highlighted their issues without feeling like a PSA
