I Want It That Way (2B Trilogy #1)
Blurb (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.

This was an okay story, but it dragged.

First of all I have to say that I hate the title of this book, because every time I see it, I get that Backstreet Boy’s song stuck in my head, and it drives me crazy!

Nadia was an okay character, but for someone who should have been fairly intelligent, she was actually pretty stupid at times. If you’re going to date someone who has a child, you have to be prepared for the child to be part of the package. You can’t date someone with a child and never consider that if the relationship does develop, you would end up living with not only the guy, but the child too! I mean it doesn’t take a genius to realise that the child isn’t going to disappear!

The storyline in this was okay, but it really dragged. The sex scenes were mildly entertaining, but I really did not care about the rest of the story, and I got bored. When I did begin to get a little more interested towards the end, Nadia turned into an idiot and screwed everything up, which frustrated me no end!
The ending when it came was then alright, but boy was I ready for this book to end. Maybe now I can finally get ‘I Want it That Way’, or the even more irritating ‘Ebay Song’ by Weird Al out of my head!
Overall; okay, but dragged,
6 out of 10.
