At twenty-two years old, Sydney has a great life: She's in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter's cheating on her--and she is left trying to decide what to do next.Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can't take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there's something about Sydney that Ridge can't ignore, either. When their inevitable
encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one...

If you haven't read this book, you have to put this book on your TBR. This book is one of those book that will make you cry of happiness and sadness (kinda like The Fault in Our Stars, but not as tragic as that). This book has both Sydney and Ridge POV, so we could know their feelings better.

So basically, this book start when Sydney caught her boyfriend, Hunter, cheating with her roommate, Tori. After she kicked herself out from the apartment  the one she shared with Tori  Sydney found herself live with her neighbor, Ridge, that she only know for around 2 weeks. Turns out, both Sydney and Ridge has passion for music, so they began to write music together, since Ridge has a writer block. Well, I think you know what happen next. They fall in love, but guess what? Ridge had a girlfriend whom he had dated for 5 years.

Yes, this book has a triangle love in it, but its not an ordinary triangle love. Sydney is one of those girl who didn't cry when her boyfriend cheated on her. She's just like Okay, I'm out of here then (I kinda like her for that). Sure, she seems stressed a week after that, but writing music with Ridge seems help her relieve her stress.

Ridge. Have I mention that he is one of the sweetest guy I've ever met (or read)? Personally, I think he's like Peeta Mellark. He's kind, funny, charming, and a little bit sarcastic. Also, he plays guitar. Who didn't like boys when they play guitar for you?
Sydney : “Why don't you ever practice on your balcony like you used to?” 
Ridge : Why would I? You're not out there anymore.” 
Beside Ridge and Sydney, there's also Warren and Bridgette, the other roommate in Ridge's apartment. Bridgette didn't have much role, but Warren is the one who often remind Sydney that Ridge has a girlfriend. His way of "remind" Sydney kinda make him a jerk, but we all know his intention is good.

This book may looks like has a simple plot, but there's much more than that. It's not just about a girl who fall in love with a boy who already had a girlfriend. For me, this book means that sometimes you just have to admit your feeling rather than keep it, because it might lead you to your fate.

Thanks for reading!
