Nadia Conrad has big dreams, and she's determined to make them come true—for her parents' sake as well as her own. But between maintaining her college scholarship and working at the local day care to support herself, she barely has time to think, let alone date. 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, a social life is out of the question. 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.



I really enjoyed this book.  I love the fact that it’s so relatable, and the things that happen in this storyline could happen to anyone.


I love how dedicated Ty is to his son and school.  And I love that Nadia pushes herself to do well in school to make her parents proud.  Even though Ty can be kind of an ass, he’s pretty upfront about the fact that his son is his world.  Nadia tries her hardest to keep things as friends with Ty.  It’s a constant struggle when she’s attracted to him.  The relationships work well in the book, and I loved the secondary characters as well.  I think Max may be a favorite of mine.


My favorite thing about this book is that Ty and Nadia become friends, and are able to vent to each other.  Friends first is always something that I think works well in books, and in life.  The series of events isn’t fast. It seems like time flies by, but everything happens over a span of months.  I think IWITW covers so many things that can happen in any relationship/friendship, and just goes to show you can’t plan everything.  Sometimes life throws obstacles in your path.


I couldn’t put this book down, and every time I read the title I sing it like the Backstreet Boys song.
