I Want It That Way (2B Trilogy #1) by Ann Aguirre (ARC review)


Nadia Conrad has big dreams, and she's determined to make them come true—for her parents' sake as well as her own. But between maintaining her college scholarship and working at the local day care to support herself, she barely has time to think, let alone date. Then she moves into a new apartment and meets the taciturn yet irresistible guy in 1B….

Daniel Tyler has grown up too fast. Becoming a single dad at twenty turned his life upside down—and brought him heartache he can't risk again. Now, as he raises his four-year-old son while balancing a full-time construction management job and night classes, a social life is out of the question. The last thing he wants is for four noisy students to move into the apartment upstairs. But one night, Nadia's and Ty's paths cross, and soon they can't stay away from each other.

The timing is all wrong—but love happens when it happens. And you can't know what you truly need until you stand to lose it.

Expected publication: August 26th 2014 by Harlequin HQN

My review:

I have read 7 books from Ann Aguirre and all of them I loved, especially her YA series so when I heard she will be writing a New Adult trilogy, I was excited because I believed she is the kind of writer who can write anything and make it special. I was not wrong. Her first book in 2B Trilogy, I want it that way, is most definetly the best New Adult book I have read.
 The story begins with Nadia and her three other roomates moving into their apartment and in the building Nadia sees a " hot ginger" guy who is all sorts of standoffish but he helps her move some furniture and then Nadia embaress herself and falls flat on her a**. That day Nadia became  a little obsessed with the guy from a floor down, Ty,  and she listened for him on her balcony. A friendship developes between them, she finds out he has a 4 year old son and that he had a really bad break up, so it is not likely they will ever have a romantic relationship. But, their feelings are too real and the sparks around them to bright to ignore so they come to an agreement. From there, there a lot of passion, hope, familiarizing with each other, happiness but also a distance between Nadia s friend. I wasnt sure how the story will end since it had a few heartbreaking moments but I have to say the conclusion of Ty and Nadia s story brought me joy and I was really happy.
What I like about this book is that it was astonishingly real, there was no unnecessary drama and fighting like there seems to be in most New Adult books. Everything was just so realistic, the characters had real world problems, there were no guys with perfect six packs and blushing virgins just two normal people meeting and with a few bumps in the road, getting to their happy ending.
