Sylvia O'Mara has spent the last four years trying to get over her high school sweetheart, who after breaking off their relationship left town without any reasons. With the help of her friends she has moved on and started dating a mysterious bad boy. She isn't happy, but she's content; until she meets the new neighbor.

Quinn Lobato has recently moved to Minneapolis to finish college close to his parents. His mother found the perfect apartment for him close to campus and assured him it has everything he needs. Quinn has had his own hurtful past and is looking forward to starting med school and a new life.

Little do they know that what they each need is waiting just across the hall.

Across the hall was recommended to my by my great friend Ines. :) She said.. ah :P I'll quote her: "OMG what a book! This book was so fucking good, one of the best I've read in a long time. It isn't too short, it isn't too long, it's hilarious, it's funny, it's sad, and sometimes it's so annoying, and I think you'll really like the boys in it" ;)

Obviously I needed to read it, right? :)

Sylvia is a nice girl who was left by the love of her life Quinn. She needed years to move on and now she seems to do just fine. She has friends and she is happy. She also got a new boyfriend, Beau, who is really a bad guy. But she's ok with it. As a character she is pretty cool, but sometimes I was just annoyed by her decisions and thinking. Lots of sadness could have been prevented.

Quinn is a good guy. Nice, funny and he feels really bad about living Sylvia. Actually he is still heartbroken about her. But he thinks he made the right decision to lieve her, because he felt it was right for her. And now that he is faced with her living across the hall, all the past emotions resurfaced and Quinn can't stop thinking about her.

The story was good. I really liked how Facile has put it. Their friends played a big part in the book too, and I was glad about it. Sometimes side characters are just on the side, but this wasn't the case!

The writing was also good! The steemy, hot scenes are written very good and I loved that. What I didn't like in this book is that there is a dual POV. You've got to know the whole day from Sylvia and Quinn, and sometimes I just wanted to know what happens next and not read about the one or other whole day before the drama kicks in.

Anyway, Across the Hall is a good read. It's New Adult. So, if you're looking for a funny, interesting, sometimes sad, with a bit of drama New Adult read, Across the Hall is the perfect book for you! ;)

I haven't heard of this before, but it sounds good. Sorry I have totally sucked at visiting your blog lately. I have been a slacker with that the past month or so.
