What is more important? Friendship, loyalty, or love?
Colleen Hoover and Griffin Peterson collaborate once again to bring fans of Maybe Someday back into the musical world of Ridge Lawson and Sydney Blake. And Maggie. And Warren and Bridgette.
This full-length novel is a follow-up to the New York Times best-selling novel Maybe Someday. For the best listening experience, Maybe Now should be listened to after Maybe Someday and the spin-off novella Maybe Not. However, Maybe Now can also be listened to immediately following Maybe Someday.
Finding this book was like reuniting with old friends. I absolutely loved maybe someday. I love the way that Colleen Hoover creates her characters. Sidney and Ridge were a couple that really fought hard against their attraction to each other but in the end at one out. The first story really takes you through an emotional roller coaster. It’s about for bidden love and whether or not to stay with somebody out of obligation. So since maybe someday took the reader on an emotional roller coaster I was very happy with the reprieve of this book. Maybe someday is a story with a dual perspective. This book has a total of four perspectives. Sidney, Ridge, Maggie, and the new guy Jake.
I read reviews while I was listening to the audiobook. I typically don’t let other peoples reviews sway my opinion. This is why I don’t mind reading reviews as I’m listening to a book because a lot of the reviews I read are not spoilers. I have to agree with some of the reviews that I read. I personally would’ve really liked if this book stuck to the two main characters from maybe someday. Although I do appreciate having Maggie‘s perspective I personally think she should’ve gotten a book solely on her own. I feel like there was more that we could’ve learned from Maggie and it really could’ve gone in depth in her own story. Like I said I appreciate the fact that we got her perspective in the story. Colleen Hoover introduces a new character as one of the main peel these in this book. There was a lot of backstory and I feel like again if he was just stuck in Maggie’s book we could’ve really gotten to know both of these characters individually.
Sidney and Ridge We’re absolutely cute in the story. It was really great to see them grow as a couple and how they interacted with their friends as well as Maggie. I don’t want to give spoilers in this review so I will say one thing I really do appreciate about Colleen Hoover with these books is how much sure everybody is. Nobody’s freaking out and in the first book there was a lot of drama so with this one I like that it was pretty much a smooth ride. Everybody was trying to navigate how because Ridge and Maggie broke up how everybody fit into their lives. Everybody is pretty much mature and can talk everything out which I like. I read a lot of novels where the two main characters go assuming with the other one is feeling or making the decision what’s right for the other person instead of just sitting and talking it out. I understand that this is to further along with Story and create angst but I also appreciate that there’s a book out there where the characters can sit down like adults and talk it out.
The narrators absolutely did a phenomenal job. Angela and Zachary it was such a pleasure listening to them together again. Zachary weber is one of my all-time favorite male narrators and I could just listen to him forever. Rebekah Ross also known as Elizabeth Louise is again one of my favorite narrators. I think the way she narrates is so beautiful. Her voice is very soothing. Jonathan Todd Ross is a new narrator to me. I think you did OK overall in the book but there was just something really monotone about his voice. It kind of felt like he was reading a script. Now I know that he was reading a script but it shouldn’t feel like he’s reading a script. His range invoices was really nice and he was OK to listen to.
The production of this audiobook was absolutely fantastic. Between all four narrators there wasn’t any awkward pauses in any of the chapters. The sound mixing was really professional. That’s all I can say about that because I don’t really know what it takes to be a engineer of sound.
If you guys made it through this review there and you guys deserve a cookie. I’m really sorry that I haven’t been around over this past year and really only posting reviews when books were given to me. This book was not given to me and I did buy it with my own money.
As always thank you for joining me and our little part of wonderland. Please do not forget to feed the unicorns on your way out.
Until next time
