I Want It That Way by Anne Aguirre Review

Hey guys!  Let me start off by saying that this book created so many feels! And I am so happy to be sharing it with you all today! Ever since I got my ARC, I've been waiting and waiting to write this review!  August 26th could not come fast enough!

First let's get you familiar with the book, with it'd description.

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.

Ann Aguirre is a New York Times & USA Today bestselling author with a degree in English Literature; before she began writing full time, she was a clown, a clerk, a voice actress, and a savior of stray kittens, not necessarily in that order. She grew up in a yellow house across from a cornfield, but now she lives in sunny Mexico with her husband, children, and various pets. She likes all kinds of books, emo music, action movies and Doctor Who. She writes all kind of fiction in multiple genres, both YA and for adults.

And now without further adieu....


4 out 5

Ok so we start out meeting this girl Nadia and she is moving into a new apartment when she meets Sexy McSexpants Ty! Although he isn't acting so sexy. But we shall get to the reason why in a few minutes..haha.

Her and her friend are trying to get a couch up the stairs and isn't until the couch falls down the stairs and Nadia splits the back of her pants that Ty decides to help them out.

At first I thought he was kind of a jerk. I mean who wouldn't offer to help new neighbors move in?! But soon after that Ty and Nadia begin this wierd relationship.  They have these sort of secret meeting out on their balconies. With Nadia on the floor above they kind of just chat about life in a way. If that make sense. Ty is a very hot and cold kind of guy towards Nadia. Wanting to have their late night balcony chats, then when they see each other in other situations he acts they they have never spoken. She gets a little miffed and then during one of their chats he explains that even though he likes her, he has his son to think about ( yea i said it McSexpants has a kid). Who I loved! Sam was seriously the light of this story.  One of my favorite characters!

So as a typical man, he says that they can be "friends with benefits" because we all know how well that turns out. Someone always gets hurt. Well let's just say it's not just one in this story. And with these two characters have very strong personalities, neither just want to walk away from this "connection". Also Ty is a guy who has been hurt before and had had some baggage that he can not seem to go of. As we all know things never stay simple, and after a few things happen in the book things get confusing and without getting too spoilerish all I can say is READ THIS BOOK!

I liked that this story was simple and there were no huge twists and turns. It kept you wanting more and these characters really pulled you in. Ann's writing really gets you emotionally invested. Which is something I need personally to really get into a book. This book held all the good stuff; love, friendship, sadness, and family!

and keep an eye out for the other two books in the series coming out later this year!

Thanks for stopping by! 

And make sure to follow Ann on

Till next timeh
