Sydney becomes captivated by her mysterious neighbor, Ridge Lawson. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the daily guitar playing he does out on his balcony. She can feel the harmony and vibrations in his music. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either: He seems to have finally found his muse. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one…
Lets be honest here, I was never a big Colleen Hoover fan, but I had a chance to review this audiobook from S&S and I was hooked right away, and NO the music doesnt play on the audiobook either. So make sure you grab the CD to have it go along with it. Anyways, the main characters are Sydney and Ridge.
Sydney is a 22 year old college student wanting more in life, lives with her best friend and her long term boyfriend Hunter. She knew Hunter was going to be happily ever after, accept what she didnt realize was that while she was away or occupied, Mr. Hunter was getting his freak on with Tori her best and roommate. But what she didnt know that the magical musicial aross the way was watching all this.
This is where we need Ridge- Ridge is magical and wonderful, and is every girlfriends dreams. He's compassionate, thoughtful, and loveable. He plays his guitar every night on his balcony and Syndey cant help but make a spot on her balcony and watch him, listen to his magical fingers.
Sydney has a magical musical touch to her, and Ridge notices, asking for assitance on his song writing- they become friends, and Ridge lets Sydney in on Hunter and Tori's secret. This is the start of a wonderful relationship between Ridge and Sydney. They go thru so much together, and you wonder why didnt end up together with a love a first sight, but Colleen loves her HEA and it builds thru the whole story. You feel bad for all parties involved but I know deep down, regardless of what Sydney and Ridge did, they belong- either together or apart. Friendships burn, lovers cry, and at the end of the day, who will Ridge choose?
The narrators on this audiobook did a awesome job- they both captured the idea image of Ridge which I thought would be hard. I didnt read the synoposis on this- so I dug right into the audio with satisfaction.
You truly have to enjoy a good NA and YA to enjoy this book- if your not into that stuff than this isnt a book for you. Defiently recommend the audiobook!
