New York's skyscrapers and hectic pace are a far cry from where Landon Gibson grew up, and the transition to New York University has been jarring. But he's getting the hang of things, found a job that pays (some of) the bills, enjoys school, and only occasionally runs into his ex, Dakota. You know, the one he chose NYU for...before she dumped him. 

Luckily, his best friend, Tessa, shares a (terribly small) Brooklyn apartment with him. And given the ups and downs she's had with her own ex, she's a good listener when he finds himself in something of a love triangle—a love knot? Whatever it is, it's a mess. An exciting mess. Maybe an addicting mess, because beautiful girls. 

Being young and finding your way in the world is hard. Landon's always been a positive person. But such a loud, demanding city so far away from home means you only get by with a little help from your friends. And a good pair of headphones. 

Landon's going to be okay...but the journey sure will be fun to watch.


I received Nothing more in return for an honest review from the publisher. 

Landon has always been the good guy the one you could feel safe with, count on and always there for you. However, over the last 2 year, his relationship has suffered due to the long distance and his girlfriend has decided that she wants to be single in New York. Landon has intended to be starting the next chapter of his life with his girlfriend but now he's starting it with his best friend as they both get over relationships.

Things are going well for Landon between work and school he has his hands full but when his ex-walks back into his life everything changes. He may have baggage but he also is open to a potential new relationship with is roommates friend if only his ex-hadn't chosen that point to come walking back in. After seeing him with another girl she decides that she's just not ready to let him go yet and Landon is torn because he's spent 6 months trying to get over her. 

I like Landon a lot he's genuinely a really nice guy with a heart of gold who will do anything for his friends. I honestly didn't care for Dakota his ex at all she clearly didn't care that he has always been there for her when things go wrong. I like Tessa she's a sweetheart just like London she's right there to support him. I'm also a little curious about Nora she seems to be just what he needs and I hope to see more of her. 

I admit that I didn't realize the characters from the book are actually part of the series so I was a little confused at first as I felt I was missing something. I like the character it's interesting to see a New Adult told from the man's perspective how he's unsure and has all the same insecurities that we've all had. I loved the characters it was really easy to connect with Landon after all who doesn't love a good guy. I really enjoyed the authors writing style the story flows from start to finish and it was easy to get lost in Landon's world. I look forward to the other series by the author so I can learn a little more of their back story. Overall even though I started out a little lost I truly enjoyed Nothing more it's captured my interest and I want more.
