Repeat after me: Stay away from the hot girl.
The beautiful girl.
The f--king ray of sunshine in the middle of your delivery route.
Layla Barros is everything I never knew I wanted. Everything I'll never have.
She's an innocent young student. I'm a convicted felon.
She's rich girl from a nice family. I've got nothing but a broken home.
But if I'm an addict, she's my drug. I can't stay away, even though I know I'll ruin her in the end.
She might be the girl of my dreams, but I was always a bad idea.

A bitter-sweet romance 4.5 stars
A really heart-warming age-gap New Adult romance between Layla, a student, and Nico, a dreamer. These two have a lot of chemistry and heat, and are so perfect for each other, but fate seems to have other ideas. This ended on a bitter-sweet note, but it is book 1, in a series, so hopefully we'll get the HEA by the end.
I listened to this book on audio, and thought the two narrators really brought the story to life.
if you want to cry for 12 hours, go ahead.
at this point, I'm too invested to stop and I already downloaded the next 2 in the series, knowing the 2nd will be as much as painfull as this one. but if I knew this will hurt so much, I don't know if I would have started at all.
Nico and Layla love each other so much it hurts. they are together in this book, but there is a lot of self doubt, unfulfilled dreams, external forces that will keep them apart by the end of the book.
I can say this: by book 3 they will get together again and get their HEA. I'm just not that patient person. this is why I'm more for the insta-love romances, which this book definetly is, but it's still didn't sooth the ache in my heart for these beautiful wonderfull amazing 2 charachters.
don't get me wrong, this is a beautiful love storry, well written, narration nailed it, it was very interesting and hot from the get go right to the very end. the thing is, it is full of angst and heartache, and I didn't get any reliefe at all.
it is 4 in the morning and I'm crying here like a little girl.
I think before I go on to the 2nd book, I'll listen first to a short light rom com to balm my poor heart a bit.
to sum it up- this book is like no book I have ever read or listened to before. this is definitely an experience.
I do recommend it, but you have to have a strong heart (which I do -not- have).

Nico is all the things.
So this book is one my absolute favorites and hearing Nico and Layla in my ears was the best.

So this is a lI’ve story about a sheltered 18 year old freshman student from Washington State and a savvy sexy 27 year old born and bread street smart New Yorker, so yeah the female lead is immature!!! But..............I loved it!!!
A little slow in a few spots but a well written engaging story of love and growing pains in the “City that never sleeps”
Yes it is a cliffhanger but the final will be out next week, and I for one will be at the front of the line!!!!
The narration is 10 stars especially from Sean Crisden who can melt off panties with one word!!!
Absolutely worth my credit or coin!!
