Pre-Squee: I Want It That Way by Ann Aguirre

Posted 25 June, 2014 | Mary @ TheBookSwarm | Pre-Squee | 19 Comments

Welcome to the Pre-Squee, a new weekly feature here at The Book Swarm and the Bewitched Bookworms. Some books, though they might not be coming out for a few months, need an early squee — we just can’t hold in our excitement about them! Sure, we’ll do full reviews closer to the release date but this feature gives us a chance to share a little bit of our love, whether it be for the story, cover, characters, or whatever. We’re quite flexible in our book love.

My first pre-squee is for Ann Aguirre’s I WANT IT THAT WAY, which doesn’t come out until August 26. But, trust me, if you like sweet romances with well-written characters (including some fab secondary characters), you’ll want to pre-order this book. And probably the other two, also (AS LONG AS YOU LOVE ME drops in September and THE SHAPE OF MY HEART releases in November).

Now, with a pre-squee, we don’t get into the deep-down of the book (that’s for reviews) so I’ll just share that these two are adorable in their interactions as they dance around each other. And the chemistry? *fans self* These two sizzle! (Perfect for August, don’tcha think?)

NA Romance
352 pages, paperback
Expected Publication: August 26, 2014
Publisher: Harlequin

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.

  1. First of all – I am pretty damn excited about our new feature!
    And.. I didn’t know Ann Aguirre writes also New Adult? I’m reading a book from her right now: Motal Danger -pretty unique so far!

    Totally love the sound of this one and go and pre-order a copy 🙂

  2. I’ve wanted to read something by Ann Aguirre for so long and she seems to be coming out with several new reads. I’m really interested in her take on NA. 🙂

  3. I didn’t even know that Aguirre had gone down the NA route Mary, but I always know that I can trust your judgement when it comes to new books, so will definitely be adding this to the tbr!

  4. Yay, this one look and sounds yummy! I just saw this and had no idea Ann wrote NA. Is this her first? I’m excited for yours and Danny’s new feature!! 🙂

  5. What a fun new feature ladies!!!!!! And I couldn’t be more excited for this book Mary. With Ann, it doesn’t even matter to me what the book is about, I just know I want to read it:) I can’t wait to see what she does with NA though, bring on the sizzle!

  6. I’m liking the new feature Danny is doing as well. Sometimes you just don’t want to hold it in. can’t say that I can relate to this book though since I’m not really into this genre – I do like the author tho haha.
