At twenty-two years old, Sydney has 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 Hunter’s cheating on her–and she is left trying to decide what to do next.
Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. 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. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one…
What can I say about this beautiful book????? I have so many feelings right now that I’m not sure I can articulate all of them coherently to put into a review.
Both Sydney and Ridge are very witty, smart, compassionate, strong but the one best quality that stands out is their honesty. The way they honestly communicate with each other through their eyes, their touch, their texts, their music – I just loved every part of it. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book where the couple talk about feelings so much and I found it so endearing. There is also a love triangle here and that’s what made this so much more emotional – no one was really at fault and I loved all of them and I wanted all of them to be happy and it totally broke my heart when it felt like they wouldn’t be able to. The side characters are also so interesting and fun and bring some relief from the strong emotions running through the story. The way music is interwoven in this book is excellent and made me very happy (also very weepy) and I suggest everyone to listen to the soundtrack. And I think I have rambled enough because I have no clue what to write anymore other than to say please read this beautiful piece of work.
Rating: All the buckets of tears I shed are stars enough!!!!!
