A Summer Recap: What I’ve Been Doing + Why I Haven’t Been Posting As Much

You guys probably have noticed that I haven’t been posting much this summer. Well, I have my reasons.

I was originally planning this summer to be a summer of rest, reading, and gaming. I’ve been working with kids for the past year and two summers and quite frankly, I desperately needed the rest. However, my parents made me apply for this summer job lottery, a lottery I thought I would never be chosen for since what are the chances I’ll be chosen for the 3rd summer in a row, especially since they cut back a huge amount of the number of jobs available?

Nadia Conrad has big dreams;
and she’s determined to make them come true. But between maintaining her college scholarship and working at the local day care to support herself, dating’s the last thing on her mind. 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, 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.

First Sentence: There’s always a meet-cute, right?

I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for a honest review. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this review.
