She hates me.
I can’t say I blame her, in fact, I thought it was best this way.
That was until I realized just how much I really cared for her.
Now all I want to do is protect her.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way.
I hate him.
He’s always been a thorn in my side.
When my life is flipped upside down, and I’m fighting to stay above water, things between us shift, and I begin to question everything I thought I knew about the boy next door.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way. I never should have kissed him. It was only a matter of time.
After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.
*Each story is completely standalone.
I started off when I first heard about this series not knowing if I’d have the time to fit them in. But once I started reading a few, I was hooked. It was a good enemies to lovers story, and as I was so hooked, it was a very quick read. The relationship was one that took a bit to actually solidify into more than friends, which as usual, the one putting on the breaks irritated me with their reasoning. But it wasn’t just a romance, there was a lot more family emotional parts to the story. Sad things happened, and then a family member behaved in a way that I didn’t see coming. But overall it was a good read, and I look forward to reading about more of the residents of 425 Madison Avenue in future stories.

With my mood dampening and all the lovebirds pairing off, I can’t think of a better excuse to get out of here. Clapping Jake on the back, I say my goodbyes and thank the guys for letting me hang with them tonight before taking my sullen ass back to my apartment.
It takes all of my restraint, not to check on Liv when I get back on the fifth floor. It would be so easy to knock on her door and tell her that I’m in love with her. That I’ve loved her for a long time. In my mind, I know it’s no use. My heart doesn’t want to listen.
I pause outside her door and touch a hand to the cold surface like it will somehow connect me to the woman inside.
“Whoa. Dude. What are you doing?” I hear the elevator ding, and Harley’s voice startles me.
“Nothing,” I shake my head and step back.
“Yeah, nothing,” he steps up beside me and shoves me toward our apartment. “Let’s go before you do something stupid.”
I huff. “Like telling her, I love her?”
“Jesus Christ, how much have you had to drink?” He questions.
“Not enough. That’s for sure.”
Harley opens the apartment door, ushering me inside. “I’m going to disagree with you. Drinking isn’t going to solve anything either.”
“Harley, it was six beers. I’m hardly drunk. Just delusional.”
“You might be right, there.” He grabs two bottles of water from the fridge and tosses me one. “When are you going to give up on her, man? Haven’t you had enough rejection?”
“Would you give up on the woman you love?”
Harley looks at me as if I’ve grown two heads. “If she treated me like shit? Pushed me away and said I made her miserable? Uh, yeah. I did; remember?”
I wince. He’s right. And I’m an asshole friend for bringing it up. “Shelia is nothing like Olivia.”
“Maybe. Maybe not. But a man has got to know when to cut his losses. Trust me.”
“It’ll be better when I finish this job and get the hell away from here. Though I feel bad leaving you without a roommate.”
