At twenty-two years old, Sydney is enjoying 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 that Hunter is cheating on her - and she's forced to decide what her next move should be.

Soon, Sydney finds herself captivated by her mysterious and attractive neighbor, Ridge. 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. They soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.

Review by Brittany:

I have read previous novels by Hoover, and this one sounded like it would fit the bill the same as her other New Adult novels had. Because I enjoyed those so much, I one-clicked this one on Amazon.

This book is pretty quintessential for Hoover. They meet, they fall for each other. One's in a relationship so they feel tortured by their feelings, and in the end it works out.

If that's what you're looking for, this is a good read. When I bought this one, I was reading a lot of books of this type that fit this mold, so it seemed like an obvious purchase. Now that I've been reading a lot of other types of books, this one actually left me feeling a bit annoyed.

Why do all of these books have to end up with this working out perfectly? Ridge and Maggie just decide that they aren't suited to each other anymore, so Ridge and Sydney can be together. It ties up perfectly, very much not like real life. Nothing is messy, no one gets hurt, and it all works out like the reader wants it to. I've become the type of reader who much rather have a messy, soap opera type story than one that cleans up so nicely.

Overall, this book is good for what it is. You know exactly what you're going to get, so from that standpoint, it serves it's purpose. For me, it was just a little too neat.
