Blog Tour: I Want It That Way by Ann Aguirre; Review


Title: I Want It That Way
Series: 2B #1
Author: Ann Aguirre
Release Date: August 26, 2014
Rating: 3.5 stars

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.

"A tender, sweet, and sexy story about how life—and falling in love—can never be planned."

—Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wait for You

I WANT IT THAT WAY on Goodreads

I Want It That Way is a story about Nadia, college student that finally moved out with her friends from campus to nice neighbourhood; that’s where she meets Ty, who happens to be living in apartment above her. He’s handsome, young man that quickly caught her eye. He’s also a single parent raising his four year old son, Sam.

In a matter of short time, Nadia is seriously crushing on her neighbour from 1B. But Ty is not ready for any kind of relationship, he avoids commitment for now as he has a little boy to raise, work and his studies.

So when the things get a little bit out of hand, and they find themselves tangled in friends with benefits situation, Nadia’s heart is ridiculously close to being broken and Ty’s vow to not to fall in love may be endangered.

Ann Aguirre surprised me with nice, strong storyline, that definitely was captivating; seeing Ty as a single parent was as much heart-warming as heartbreaking. I started liking him instantly. He was strong, good and awesome young man, who was dealing with single parenthood the best he could. Although, some of the things he’s done made me mad at him and I really wanted to hurt him for being an asshole.

Nadia was also very likeable, warm heroine. I liked reading about her and her struggles. She seemed very ‘normal’ and relatable. I quickly grew to cheer for her and hoped she would get her HEA.

Overall, I really enjoyed most of this book. It was sweet, romantic and touching. It had a little bit of angst, lots of great sexual tension and nice, likeable characters. It was quick charming new adult read, which didn’t completely blow me away, but kept me entertained enough. Although the execution was okay, if things were a little bit more thought through (there were some issues that need fixing), the whole novel could have been wonderful; I just hoped the main characters would be more developed and didn’t go friends with benefits route. It made this book quite predictable, yet I felt glued to the pages.
