With You by Amanda Waters is a captivating romance novel that follows the journey of Kristen, a successful woman grappling with cognitive dissonance. Along with her father George, she embarks on a quest to find an apartment that meets her exacting standards. Leaving Chicago behind, Kristen arrives early at her new apartment near Wrigley Field in Riverton. For Kristen, Nona’s feels like home - a sentiment shared by her former roommates Nora and Liz - and represents her idealized version of an Italian restaurant in a movie. However, when Jack unexpectedly re-enters her life, Kristen is confused. Is her reluctance toward romance driven by fear or simply another means of avoiding reality? Readers must delve further into the story to discover the truth and explore a world where every character is unique.
