Synopsis from Amazon:
At twenty-two 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 the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening 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…
Maybe Someday is now my favorite Collen Hoover book, but Confess is a very close second.
This novel follows Sydney, who’s boyfriend Hunter is the jerk to end all jerks, and sleeps with Sydney’s best friend and roommate, Tori. With nowhere to live after this epic betrayal Sydney is taken in by her mysterious (and hot!) neighbor Ridge.
Ridge is now in my top 10 list of book boyfriends. He is cute, sweet, and just such a great listener in a really interesting way. He’s loyal to a fault and loves deeply, which is why it’s super unfortunate for Sydney that Ridge has a girlfriend he’s completely and totally in love with. And Sydney refuses to allow herself to be a “Tori”.
So both Sydney and Ridge try to ignore the strong attraction they have for each other and instead work together to make incredible music. And as with any Colleen Hoover, this comes with a lot of complications and there’s more to the story than there first seems to be. This isn’t your average or typical love triangle. It’s way more complicated than that and it made my heart race and my stomach flip flop all over the place just reading it.
I really loved Ridge and Sydney. I loved how they communicate and how honest they are with each other. Their chemistry was undeniable and there were so many times I laughed and probably looked liked a crazy person on the train. But I couldn’t help but smile while reading this book. And cry. There was also some crying.
More than that I also really liked the side characters. Warren was hilarious and such a great friend. And Bridgette, although we don’t see a lot of her, she really added to the story. There’s a novella about Warren and Brdigette that I really want to read now because I need more of these characters. They’re just so well written and I loved how everything came together in this book.
I was so sad to return this book to the library today and I already plan on doing a Colleen Hoover book buy soon because I need to reread this book. So good!
