Présentation de l'éditeur

Nadia Conrad has big dreams, and she's determined to make them come true. But between maintaining her college scholarship and working at the local day care to support herself, dating's the last thing on her mind. 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, the last thing he wants is noisy students living in 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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Quick and cute, but romance didn't connect 31 août 2014
Par Rachel @ Paper Cuts blog - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I Want It That Way is a double-edged sword for me. On paper, I really liked a lot of individual parts, which should have led to me really liking this. But in reality, it's just one that didn't jump off the page for me. Objectively, I liked I Want It That Way. It just didn't make my heart patter or my world rock.

There's a lot of focus in I Want It That Way on characters pursing what makes them happy. Hoorah! I'm a definite believer in the idea that the same kinds of paths aren't going to work for everyone. Some people just aren't suited to college, for example, and what they dream of doing doesn't require it. Subscribing to other people's ideas of how you should live your life is for the birds. I think Ann Aguirre did a fantastic job showing this, and it works so well in a college setting, since everyone there is searching for something that will make them happy for the rest of their lives. And in turn, she does a great job encouraging her characters to make hard decisions and fight for what they want, rather than letting people tell them things are just going to happen a certain way. Her characters struggle realistically and it makes the most of the new adult designation in that way.

I really liked Nadia and Ty as well. Nadia is hard-working and driven to make her parents proud by doing well in school and earning her degree so she can teach special needs students. She's admirable in her dedication and her obvious love of teaching. Ty is just as likable. Though closed off at first, he's got a lot more going on under the surface, but he's absolutely and completely committed to his son. He hasn't given up on pursuing his own dream, albeit more slowly, but his rapport with Sam, his son, is so endearing.

So what's the problem? On paper, like I said, I was rooting for Nadia and Ty. Completely. In reality, I wasn't feeling chemistry. I wasn't swooning. I wasn't reacting at all, really. When the happy ending came (as you know it had to), I was glad, but not feeling especially enthusiastic.

I Want It That Way is a nice read. It's quick and there's a lot of great things going on in terms of a focus on finding yourself and pursing your passions, but the romance was rather meh to me. I'm absolutely going to continue the series, however, because I know Ann Aguirre can write swoon-worthy romance and I can't wait to hear Lauren and Max's stories.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Summary (from Goodreads):

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.

What I Liked:

You all KNOW my struggle with New Adult contemporary romance novels. A few years ago, I read a lot of the "originals" - New Adult contemporary romance novels that weren't yet christened "New Adult", that weren't yet bought by large publishing companies. Colleen Hoover, Jamie McGuire, and Tammara Webber were still doing the indie thing. I liked what I read... up until the publishing companies starting buying these indie books, and suddenly, EVERY author was writing New Adult contemporary romance novels, and self-publishing them, probably hoping that the big companies would buy their book's rights.

And the sad thing was/is, these books all started to sound the same. They WERE the same - innocent girl meets "bad" boy, falls in love with him, wants to fix him. Meanwhile, he has a dark, deadly past, he doesn't do emotions, but oh yes, he'd love to do her. It's very possible that she either has experienced or will experience rape or sexual abuse at some point.

Blah. Blah. Blah. I'm telling you right now, if this book followed the same bulls*** plot as the "older" New Adult contemporary romance novels, I would barf, rage, write a heck of a 0-star review, and forget that I requested and was approved for the next book. Aren't we all happy that's not the case?

Nadia and her friends Max, Lauren, and Angus have just moved into a new apartment. They're juniors, so no more on-campus dorm housing (don't I know this struggle). Nadia isn't expecting to fall into lust (and eventually, love) with the hawt neighbor on the floor below, Ty. Ty is three years older, works during the day and takes night classes, oh, has a four-year-old son (no wife, no girlfriend, no baby momma). Ty doesn't want a serious relationship with anyone, not after what happened with his ex-girlfriend, not with his son so young. But he and Nadia can't seem to stay away...

I don't think this book was too cliche at all. I haven't read a single New Adult contemporary romance novel that involved the male protagonist having a son - oh wait. Actually, now that I think about it, I remember on of J. Lynn's has that story. Ish. It's not as serious as it is in this book (if you know what I mean). We see so much of Sam, you can't not love him. Nadia is a part-time teacher at a daycare academy, so when Ty enrolls Sam, Nadia is teaching Sam every day.

I really enjoyed this story. I found that I read it really quickly, which was nice. It wasn't *too* focused on the angst and heartache and chemistry and blah blah blah. I mean, it was, kind of, but nothing like most New Adult contemporary romance novels (in which the romance is ALWAYS over the top and exaggerated - in my opinion. Don't forget that I'm a "new adult" in college). Ty and Nadia aren't constantly banging or flirting or doing that dance around each other. Their relationship, from the start, is more meaningful. They don't start based on oh-my-gosh-I-want-to-be-in-his/her-pants-ASAP. I mean, they both think that, but they start actually interacting on a deep level first, physical second. Or maybe third. Or tenth.

That being said, I really liked the romance. Ty and Nadia don't have a cookie-cutter fall-in-love story. They don't meet, flirt, hook up, fall in love, break up, fall in love and end up together. No, their journey is much more complicated than that, especially with Sam in the picture.

I love how much else is going on in this book. Nadia has a lot to deal with, with classes and work and her best friend's school crisis and her apartment-mates and Ty. Towards the end, it's like life took a giant dump of Nadia, but it feels very natural. Like there were little cues throughout the book that hinted that something of this or that nature would happen. I like how natural things flowed, instead of how most New Adult contemporary romance novels just throw random plot twists and climaxes at readers.

I didn't hate the female protagonist! Nadia isn't stupid or wishy-washy or straight-up DUMB, like most female protagonists in New Adult contemporary romance novels. And I love in the end, how SHE took charge of things (being vague). Good for her! Nadia doesn't necessarily have demons, but Ty does. His demons, in my opinion, are REAL. Not that I'm saying that the demons of male protagonists of other New Adult contemporary romance novels aren't necessarily real... but they don't seem to matter as much as something like a pregnancy, a child.

You know how most New Adult contemporary romance novels end perfectly? Like, boy and girl FINALLY get together as a real couple, girl faces her demons, boy faces his, boy saves girl from getting raped or run over by cars or beat up or whatever, and everyone sails off into the sunset. Well, in this book, the ending isn't what you would expect in a New Adult contemporary romance novel. Not everyone ends up perfectly happy. But I shan't give anything away!

Overall, I really liked this book. And not just because it's an Ann Aguirre book (though I do love Aguirre's books in general), but because it was a genuinely good book. Also, perhaps it's good that I took such a long break from New Adult contemporary romance novels. But I don't think I would have liked this book less if I still had been reading (and hating) New Adult contemporary romance novels, like before!

What I Did Not Like:

In no way do I promote the practice of day drinking, binge-drinking, post-break-up drinking, blackout drinking - quite frankly, I don't promote or endorse any type of drinking. Contrary to what you'll infer from most authors and their wine, alcohol is bad for you, people. Moderation is good though.

That was more like a disclaimer, not a dislike. Take it as you will!

Would I Recommend It:

If you like New Adult contemporary romance novels, definitely give this book a chance. If you like contemporary or romance novels in general, you will enjoy this book! There is adult content and whatnot, so be warned.


4 stars. YAY, a positive rating for a New Adult contemporary romance novel, coming from a "new adult" who has read sooo many New Adult contemporary novels, and disliked a good number of them! That says something, people.

I Want it That Way is the first in a New Adult Contemporary Series from Ann Aguirre. I had no idea she was so versatile as an author. I loved her new adult contemporary just as much as I loved her young adult dystopian. The unique thing that I am enjoying about this series is that we get to see the book covers and synopsis for each of the books right up front. I know whose story each of them are going to be about. It was cool because while I was reading this one, I saw some of the characters that the other books were going to be about and let's just say they are not ready for their stories yet. They have crushes on other people or they are dating someone else right now. It was kind of fun seeing them now when I know their story will focus on something different down the road. But this story is about one of the young ladies in apartment 2B- Nadia, and her huge crush on the young single father downstairs.

I loved how Ty and Nadia connected outside on their balconies. That aspect of it kind of reminded me of On the Fence by Kasie West. Nadia and Ty are both super busy. Nadia is taking a full load of classes as well as doing her practicum at a local school to become a special needs teacher, as well as working part time at a day care to help pay for school. Ty is working full time, taking night classes to become an Architect and taking care of his son alone. Normally, I am not one for reading stories with kids in them. (Please put away all rotten vegetables!) I just do not mesh well with tiny humans, and I normally feel like a pregnancy "ruins" a story for me. But there was no pregnancy in this book (that I knew of) so I decided to give it a try. And I am glad that I did. I loved watching Nadia and Ty dance around each other. Plus, watching Sam and Nadia interact in day care was adorable. I actually liked the little guy.

I wanted to punch his father and tell him to wake up a few times when he continually pushed Nadia away, but that is another story. And then when they finally came to some sort of agreement on an arrangement that they both liked, Ty was beyond sweet. I loved watching him worry when Nadia was driving in bad weather. But don't you drama people worry, even then things still come between them. They didn't have much smooth sailing, but I liked them so much I couldn't help but to keep rooting for them! They are the couple you know is going to make it, if only they could get past their insecurities and issues and just try.

I Want it That Way was a great new adult read. Told in dual narrative between Nadia and Ty was a great way for the readers to get to know both main characters equally. We also got a chance to get to know the other roommates in Apt 2B so we can lay some of the ground work for books 2 and 3. Ty stole a little piece of my heart with this book. I really liked him and I LOVED that the author gave us a bonus scene from his point of view. I want more of them! I liked Ty more than Nadia, but Nadia was a sweet character as well. I loved her spunk and tenacity when it came to Ty. Ty just had so much heart. You could feel his emotions jump off the page. I was kind of addicted to reading about him. Fans of New Adult, of neighbor/roommate romance, and romance in general will eat this one up!

*Disclaimer- I got a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for my thoughts.

Let's get this out of the way, shall we? How many of us saw the titles of these books and started singing Backstreet Boys? How many of us are actually reading these books because of the title (shame on you)? How many of us are actually Backstreet Boys fans? First question: I did and I still do. Second question: absolutely not. I'm a huge fan of Ann's and while I have yet to read any of her adult books, I've loved her YA stuff and I'm working on getting to her other adult books. Third question: not me. I'm a *N SYNC girl through and through but I have come to appreciate BSB in the early years now that I'm older. Plus, they bring back my childhood so what's not to love. I am here to tell you these books have nothing to do with the group but still, feel free to continue singing.

This book was so much fun; I'm not even kidding. All of the characters were entertaining, especially all of those who reside in apartment 2B (get why the trilogy is now named 2B?). Max is my favorite, hands down. I'm normally not attracted to someone like him but his personality totally outshines his conquests. I have to say I enjoy his friendship with Nadia the most. I know she's best friends with Lauren but the interactions between Max and Nadia are just perfect on every level. People say guys and girls can't really be friends without wanting something more? These two just prove that's not the case. Though, I guess it's not always been the case but seriously, love love love these two.

Speaking of Nadia, she's all sorts of awesome and she's, pardon my language, freaking kinky. Like, really kinky. That's not what makes her awesome, I just realized how that sounded. I'm far from what she is but it just cracked me up how out there she really is. She admitted something from her days in a dorm and I think my jaw hit the floor. It was kind of disturbing but hilarious? No doubt there are many people out there (girl or guy) just like her and hey, whatever works for you, right? Nadia comes from a good family but one whose always struggled to make ends meet but it doesn't change the fact that she's the first in her family to go to college and that puts a lot of pressure on ones shoulder. She's serious about her future and I admire the fact that she wants to teach but not only teach, teach special needs classes.

Ty, what is there to say about Ty besides the fact that I never understand why gingers get so much flack. I find gingers quite attractive but yet they get made fun of all the time. Y'all are just jealous; that's what it is. He's a little bit older than Nadia and her roommates but only by a few years. He's got a roommate whose favorite meal becomes hot dog casserole and can't go to sleep without his stuffed teddy bear. Oh yes, we're talking about his adorable four year old son, Sam, who I just want to hug. This guy is the type of man I'd want to have as the father of my son. Seriously, he's just perfection.

I've been reading a lot of New Adult lately, as that's really the only contemporary I can stand, and I just feel like it doesn't follow the same pattern most books follow. Sure, there was a part in the middle of the book where I felt like it both dragged a little and I was confused with what would happen for the remainder of the book but it was minimal. I got over it and it obviously didn't effect my overall rating or feels of this book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Okay story, but it dragged, 26 août 2014
Par Sarah - Publié sur Amazon.com
(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to review basis. Thanks to Harlequin (UK) Limited and NetGalley.)

This was an okay story, but it dragged.

First of all I have to say that I hate the title of this book, because every time I see it, I get that Backstreet Boy’s song stuck in my head, and it drives me crazy!

Nadia was an okay character, but for someone who should have been fairly intelligent, she was actually pretty stupid at times. If you’re going to date someone who has a child, you have to be prepared for the child to be part of the package. You can’t date someone with a child and never consider that if the relationship does develop, you would end up living with not only the guy, but the child too! I mean it doesn’t take a genius to realise that the child isn’t going to disappear!

The storyline in this was okay, but it really dragged. The sex scenes were mildly entertaining, but I really did not care about the rest of the story, and I got bored. When I did begin to get a little more interested towards the end, Nadia turned into an idiot and screwed everything up, which frustrated me no end!
The ending when it came was then alright, but boy was I ready for this book to end. Maybe now I can finally get ‘I Want it That Way’, or the even more irritating ‘Ebay Song’ by Weird Al out of my head!
Overall; okay, but dragged,
6 out of 10.
