At twenty-two years old, Sydney is enjoying 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 that Hunter is cheating on her—and she’s forced to decide what her next move should be.
Soon, Sydney finds herself captivated by her mysterious and attractive neighbor, Ridge. 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. They soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.

I had a very bad headache after finishing this book.
No, no, no! Not because the book was terrible (It wasn’t!) but because I stayed up the whole night to finish it.
This book is about Sydney who is heartbroken because her boyfriend cheated on her and now she has moved out of her best friend’s house. She starts to live in an apartment which she shares with 3 people including a very handsome lad who is a very cute guitarist. She starts falling for him and he feels the same about her. BUT! they can’t be together.
It wasn’t really a good summary I wrote there but you probably got the point.
I didn’t like Sydney. I just couldn’t connect with her and I know she broke up with her boyfriend because he cheated on her, but I didn’t like her crying all the time. She was so dramatic at times and that made her really annoying.
Ridge was a really talented and unique. I never read a character like him before. But he infuriated me sometimes. He was a really loyal friend – a quality I admire alot. I liked Warren and Bridget although she was very mean and bitchy. I will be reading Maybe Not which centers around these two because I’m curious to read about their relationship.
On to the writing, Colleen Hoover possesses a very distinctive and unique writing style. Her writing is so addictive that you fly through the whole book without realizing that you’re on the last page. But, honestly, that’s the only thing I admire about her. I think that she tries really hard to write an over-emotional story and she succeeds in it. But, I don’t feel connected to her stories that’s why I don’t like these stories of her. And before you say anything, I have read many books with emotional past that ripped my heart out and shattered it into pieces. But this one didn’t.
Spoilers (Skip this part if you haven’t read the book yet):
Ridge was playing with two hearts. He had a girlfriend and he was kinda flirting with other girl and that’s what infuriated me. I don’t care how much he tried to stop himself later but he didn’t stop himself when it started. Sydney annoyed me because she was also a part of it and after all what she went through, she should never have done anything like that to Maggie. I really loved Maggie and no matter what explanation or thing she said about Ridge keeping a hold on her, she never deserved it!
