    I just finished Across The Hall and I was just amazed on how wel

    I just finished Across The Hall and I was just amazed on how well developed the story was. There are some emotional rifts, but there are just so many good feeling moments as well; it was impossible to put this story down. It was absolutely wonderful. Towards the end, I have to admit, my heart tugged a little, for a good reason, and I was just very pleased on how things went at the end, to me like it should be, and was. The characters were well written, just so well written. Quinn and Sylvia: they are the main characters, and we read the story from both of their point of views, which I really liked, as we see both of their sides on same issues that they face. I think that was really helpful, and it just works for story. Speaking of the story itself, it was well described, very descriptive, for example, Facile explains why Quinn broke up with Sylvia after high school and why he... well why he broke her heart by leaving her behind while he went away to college. There were some raw moments, not going to lie, but those moments helped me, the reader, connect to the characters, and feel what they felt. Anyways, I hope you read this story; there are feelings of complete joy, of love, of sadness, of loss, of anger, frustration, and well...of desire (blush). This is a wonderful story, and I’m glad I was able to find some time to read this. This is one novel, I really really do Recommend!

    Second Chance on Love

    NM Facile has written an amazing story about second chance on love in her book Across the Hall. Sylvia and Quinn were once high school sweethearts who broke up after graduation and their lives were never the same after but fate always has a habit of changing ones lives.

    Quinn's mother finds an apartment for her son when he returns to finish his med schooling after four years. What he does not realize is his first and only love is living Across the Hall. Sylvia's heart has only belong to one man and when she finally goes out with bad boy Beau, she comes face to face with the only man that holds her heart. Sparks were once again ignited along with trouble with Beau's stalking and his lies.

    In addition with the Quinn and Sylvia, I also loved the set of friends and their loyalties to one another when things heat up with the trouble brewing, loss and protecting their friend from heartache.

    The Epilogue was amazing and shows the love between two people who was given a second chance and embraced the fate that they always belong with one another.

    Wonderful

    Great read. Storyline very well developed and plausible. There is absolute closure. Not predictable in the story which makes it a good read, too. Romantic. I really liked it!

    I really really enjoyed this book. This was the first book I hav

    I really really enjoyed this book. This was the first book I have read by Ms. Facile and let me say she did not disappoint. I will admit some of the book is predictable, but there were some twists that I did NOT expect. 




    One thing that I really enjoy about this NA genre is if it is done correctly it brings back so many memories of being in my early 20s and late teens. This book takes me right back to college and drew me in. 




    I really felt sorry for Sylvia. She did get a little annoying, but she did have a lot going on in her life. She had a fantastic support system in her friends. They were truly awesome and everyone needs a group of friends like that. I found myself screaming at Sylvia to dump Beau!




    What can you say about Quinn!!! Swoon! He was such a hottie! I was really rooting for him and Sylvia to get their HEA!!! 




    This is a great story that is well developed and has a great cast of characters that you will love reading about. Just when you think the book is coming to an end, she hits you with something BIG! But the story does have a HEA! I give this book a certified Nerd Alert A+

    Would not recomend reading it

    I have to say I did not enjoy reading this book. I absolutely hated the main character- Sylvia. She is immature, childish,stupid, weak, stubborn....I think the main character in the book should have atleast one redemable characteristic, but that is not the case in this book. SHE HAD NOTHING GOING ON FOR HER. She is not honest with herself or with her friends or even boyfriend which intern leads to other people getting hurt. As far as I am concerned she alone is to blame for all the mess. I can only imagine hidding things and not even accepting the truth to youreslf or to your friends will lead you to you pretending to be someone and your friends dont even know the real you. In the book author keeps repeating that Sylvia always takes care of others not once in the book did I see that. All I was able to see was her stupid decisions leading to people getting hurt. I did not understand how Quinn, Beau or Jason even love her. I can understand the breakup and aftermath of feelings that you might go through but that doesnot mean you have to lower yourself or accept any crap from anyone, but that is exactly what she does. She cannot even make her own decisions when it really matters. It is all about her guilt but does she change and try to be better nooooo.

    Long

    It had a good concept, but it was drug out way to long. I also hated the main character, she acted like she was still in high school.
