“I WANT IT THAT WAY is an enjoyable read that is perfect for the summer.”
~ Under the Covers

I’ll be honest. I’ve had this book on my bookshelf for a couple of years now and I wasn’t really sure I wanted to read it. The New Adult titles of late have been a little underwhelming for me, so I worried that would follow me to this book. But since this is written by an author I typically enjoy, I thought I would give it a shot.

Aguirre isn’t a stranger to writing in first person. She does it quite a lot in her UF and YA titles, but this one felt different to me. It’s a little more laid back and snarky in style. The heroine, Nadia, is especially sarcastic. For me, this was a double edged sword. I thought it brought a lot of fun personality to her, but at the same time, too much of it didn’t make me take her seriously.

With New Adult, you often have a particular trauma that the protagonist suffers from, however, this one felt quite light in comparison. The romance is also simple and efficient. Aguirre builds the tension between Nadia and Tyler in a way that is straightforward yet sizzling. I only wished that there was more going on in terms of plot. Maybe I’m just used to Aguirre’s worldbuilding and extensive plotting that I expected something more with this book. Nevertheless, I WANT IT THAT WAY is an enjoyable read that is perfect for the summer.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
