In exchange for helping Ridge write lyrics for his band, Sydney can stay with…

Colleen Hoover always seems like she sucks you right into the story. I read this book in about 2 days! This book was so easy to read. Colleen’s words just flow on the page.

The characters were so likable. But the relationships were all problematic. But I kind of like that about Colleen’s books. They are all real romances and not the fairy tale type that are not normally written about. I really enjoyed the characters. I mean I was happy for Ridge either person that he picked. I just did not want any of the characters to have hurt feelings. I also loved Ridge’s character. I liked how he did not let him being deaf stop him from playing music, communicating with Sydney, etc. A lot of novels depict characters with a disability as feeling sorry for themselves. Colleen wrote this novel where Ridge’s disability did not hinder him at all.

One thing that I did not like at all was how this book depicted women. It seemed as though all the women did something bad, called names, and/or made questionable and immoral decisions. The men were depicted as in the right (seduced or yelled at by the women). But I am being very picky here. I am sure that I was reading into it a little too much.

The ending did not do it for me. I felt like Ridge just settled with Sydney. He really wanted to be with Maggie. I did not feel the closure or that love connection between Ridge and Sydney. I think the only thing that they had in common was music. Maggie and Ridge had a history together. It is not the typical ending to a romance novel. But I think that is why I do love reading Colleen’s books; they are not your typical romance novel.

Overall, I enjoyed how this book was not a typical romance novel. I also loved the characters. But there were things that I did not like about it too.
