Rating: 3 stars!

Sylvia O’Mara has spent the last four years trying to get over her high school sweetheart, who after breaking off their relationship left town without any reasons. With the help of her friends she has moved on and started dating a mysterious bad boy. She isn’t happy, but she’s content; until she meets the new neighbor.

Quinn Lobato has recently moved to Minneapolis to finish college close to his parents. His mother found the perfect apartment for him close to campus and assured him it has everything he needs. Quinn has had his own hurtful past and is looking forward to starting med school and a new life.

Little do they know that what they each need is waiting just across the hall.

My Review:

The Storyline…..

The storyline itself kept me reading through the book. I needed to find out if the characters ended up okay and if the story had a fairytale ending. Basically, the main characters of Sylvia & Quinn had dated in high school. Quinn broke it off  the summer before college, left town and they never saw each other again. Flash forward to 4 years later when Quinn transfers schools and moves across the hall from who else? But Sylvia.

The Characters…..

I loved Quinn! He was sweet, sexy and perfect boyfriend material. Sylvia was okay, but I think she made MANY mistakes along the way. I also adored the BFF’s, Kai, Kerry, Sloane and Reed. They actually made this book more amusing with their crazy antics! I also was enamorate of the way that all four of them cared so much for Sylvia to actually look after her night and day!

In Conclusion….

This book was an okay read for me. I loved the storyline and adore stories about second chances, me and my husband had a second chance romance! But, there were some aspects of the book that just seemed so fake. I also wanted to mention that this book should be read by a very mature teen or adult due to the explicit sexual scenes. If anyone else had read this, I would love to hear your thoughts?

I exhaled the big breath I had been holding. “Quinn,” I said in a half whispered voice with a nod of acknowledgement. It was all I could get out.
