But, when approached by this book's author, NM Facile, to review this book on my blog (and, offer a e-book copy giveaway, YAY!!) I immediately said YES! And, I committed myself to re-reading this book in order to write a full review with the story fresh in my mind. My review on Goodreads was short and concise, but for my blog I wanted to share a more in-depth insight.
The second time around, it did not let me down. My attention was once again captured immediately. I love how the story begins with Sylvia, a college student and the Main Character, waking to an awful hangover from a night out with the girls. Because, obviously I want to know what happened the night before.
While trying to heal her broken heart through a few one night stands, Sylvia finds distraction in a bad boy. Opposite of her former type. With the help of close friends who posse around here, Sylvia thinks she has finally found a way to put her life and her heart back together. Then again, her mysterious bad boy might just turn out to be more than she can handle.
Life gets more complicated when an unexpected stranger moves in Across The Hall. Fate becomes twisted. Her heart and mind confused wanting love but fearing it too, the previous scar on her heart from her first heartbreak still healing.
This story takes me back to those days of my twenties. A time when I was an adult and in charge of my life though still somewhat unsure and unsteady in so many of the decisions and choices presented to me. Yet, an age where life teases out one's wild side. It took me back to that first, true heart break. And, it brought back that level of passion youth pours into relationships.
This is a great read, smooth chick-lit with a little steam wavering through the pages here and there! ;-D
[Who doesn't like steamy scenes?]
