From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a passionate tale of friendship, betrayal, and romance.
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...
First book I’ve read from Colleen Hoover and I swear I am going to read every single one of her works from now on. This book was so good! I cannot even. It was so beautiful and perfect.
It talked about how fate is something you cannot deny. It talked about how you can’t help who you fall in love with and that sometimes people need to know how to distinguish being desperately in love with someone and wanting to be their hero.
The first sentence of the first chapter was “I just punched a girl in the face.” That sold me immediately! It was very compelling and I would've been able to finish this one immediately if it weren't for the fact that I have to do things such as my school responsibilities.
The involvement of music in this book is something I loved. I’m a sucker for guitar players, so knowing this is what the guy lead does is definitely a bonus. I think it was so beautiful to see Sydney and Ridge write wonderful music together.
I was in an emotional state throughout reading this that I just want to rip it into shreds and use the pages as a tissue. It has everything you could want to feel while reading; one moment you were so giddy and laughing and the next you just want to punch someone in the face and stare at the wall and bawl your eyes out.
This is impressive, okay. I cannot even explain how much I love this book. I am currently in a book hangover; I’ve been trying to start a new book (tried 3 books) but just couldn’t stop thinking about this and how I want to marry it.
