Summary from GoodReads
Nadia Conrad has big dreams, and she's determined to make them come true—for her parents' sake as well as her own. But between maintaining her college scholarship and working at the local day care to support herself, she barely has time to think, let alone date. 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, a social life is out of the question. The last thing he wants is for four noisy students to move into 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.
A loving story about life in college, choices in life and relationships. This is the first book I've ever read from this author and I enjoyed every last sentence.
Nadia has moved from home in order to study. She moved in woth three more of her friends yet she can't take her eyes from Ty, the gorgeous man of the apartmant below, who also happens to be a dad, at 24.
Although at first the relationship between Nadia and Ty began as "frineds with benefits" quickly it developed into romance. Yet both of them had the maturity to recognise themselves for their choices.
Nadia's friends also worked into helping her woth her problems while the setting for the next two books was presented.
An enjoyable read, for the lovers of contemporary. :)
