Synopsis:

Colleen Hoover draws you in to this passionate tale of music, love and betrayal...
 
Sydney is living in an idyllic bubble - she's a dedicated student with a steady job on the side. She lives with her best friend, has a great boyfriend, and the music coming from the balcony opposite hers is fast becoming the soundtrack to her life. But when Sydney finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her, the bubble bursts. The mysterious and attractive man behind the music, Ridge, gives Sydney hope that she can move on and they begin to write songs together. But moving on is harder than she expects, Sydney can only hope... Maybe someday... 

Featuring music from Griffin Peterson.

REVIEW: 

Powerful. Full of emotions. Original.

The first time, I read Sydney's point of view I honestly felt sorry for her and I love how she stayed strong even though deep inside its crushing her. If Hunter (Sydney's boyfriend) was real, I would've punched him, he's such a jerk. Let's move on to Ridge, he's freaking mysterious, unpredictable, musically gifted, and utterly attractive. Come on guys, who wouldn't fall for Ridge? (I just want to let you know, he's my book boyfriend right now!)

I like how Ridge helped Sydney get over her jerk boyfriend and bitch best friend. I dislike how Warren (Ridge's roommate) acts like a jerk too but then eventually you'll love him too. I felt sorry for Maggie (Ridge's girlfriend) in the end. (You'll know what happened if you'll read it, must read by everyone!)

The title really did suit the book, the US and UK cover are both awesome but I think the UK cover doesn't seem to match the plot of the book. The dialog between everyone in this book are really easy to understand. My favorite character would be Ridge because he tried so hard in making every thing right and he finally realized what's really in store for him. My least favorite character would be Tori and Hunter, they're both pricks!

After reading the book, I realized things that are applicable in real life. Like you should really get to know people around you and don't ever trust easily because you might not know what will happen. I did not expect that I'll win this book and trust me, I never regretted that I won this. I must be honest with you and to be really really honest, while I read this book I was crying.
 
When I read these parts;  
 
“My heart made it's choice, and it chose you.”

“I...will never...regret you.” 
“How ever, I've learned that the heart can't be told when and who and how it should love. The heart does whatever the hell it wants to do. The only thing we can control is whether we give our lives and our minds the chance to catch up to our hearts.”  

I broke down into tears. This book is a must read and super awesome! Two thumbs up to Colleen Hoover for writing another masterpiece. Totally worth reading.
 
Thanks for reading, my lovely book buddies!
