I Want it That Way Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

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.

Author Bio:
Ann Aguirre is a New York Times & USA Today bestselling author and RITA winner 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. Ann likes books, emo music, action movies, and she writes all kinds of genre fiction for adults and teens, published with Harlequin, Macmillan, and Penguin, among others.

I Want it That Way is so sweet. Nadia doesn't just fall in love with Ty, she falls in love with his kid Sam, too. And not because she got to know them together, but she fell in love with each of them individually, and then together. It's the sweetest thing ever. Sam was the most adorable little boy ever. I also loved the secondary characters. I am so excited about the spin-offs about Lauren and Max, and I definitely can't wait to see more of Angus in those two books.

Ty has held on to his guilt for a long time. He doesn't know how to let it go. But, he also doesn't let it bother him to much, because otherwise he never would have had Sam. Ty's world revolves around Sam. Every Sunday without excuse, he spends all day with Sam. That's part of what drew Nadia to him. But she also fell in love with his giving, caring nature.

I kinda wanted to find out more about Diana, but maybe she'll get her own book (one can hope, right? ;) Anyways, I Want it That Way is a good book for romance lovers who are looking for a book that will make your heart melt, and not just because of the awesome male lead, but because of his son who is the cutest, most mature little boy ever <3
