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.

The second I had the chance to read this new book from Ann Aguirre, I knew I had too. I had not read anything in the past from her but always heard wonderful things about her books and writing. So this new book could not be passed up. I Want It That Way was definitely a great start to a new series. It didn't blow me away but it did keep me entertain enough to have enjoyed it. Some parts dragged a tiny bit but other than that everything was great.

This book follows Nadia, a college student that moves into an apartment with her good friends off campus. They have all known each other for some time and this set up works great because she wouldn't be able to afford it any other way. On move in day, Nadia bumps into her neighbor from 1B, Ty. Ty comes off very serious especially since he is a ginger. Turns out Ty has a little son he is raising on his own. Well one step leads to another and before ya know it Nadia is crushing on the "Hot Ginger" but it's not that easy. Ty doesn't want any women in his life, he just wants to devote the time he isn't working or going to school part-time to his son. But love is a pretty strong emotion and sometimes what you think you want, doesn't turn out that way. Will friends with benefits work out for these neighbors or will responsibilities and life alter the future. 

Nadia I loved but Ty I was struggling with. I get why he was like he was, but when reading him I would loose interest at times but then Nadia would bring me back in. Like I mention at the beginning it was great and worth reading regardless. Sometimes minor road bumps help fix bigger issues and by the end I was sold. I enjoyed the extra scene that Aguirre included in Ty's POV at the end. I will definitely read the next installment in this series.
