My Rating is 5 out of 5 stars
This book was so much more than a romantic comedy. I knew it was going to be a good book because, hello, its RC Boldt. This woman is so talented that I just can’t wait to read the next book. I started off laughing my a** off, but quickly progressed to finding myself so immersed that I didn’t put this book down once. I read from beginning to end in one sitting. One minute I’m laughing so hard, then I’m crying emotional tears, then back to laughing so hard I cried. This book was definitely perfect in every way.
Maggie comes home from work early one day to find her fiancee sleeping with another woman in their bed. She kicks him to the curb immediately. She then finds herself needing a new roommate because her rent is so pricy. She is determined that it has to be a gay man because she wants nothing to do with men right now and she definitely doesn’t want a catty female either. So when she lays eyes on Ryland, she is cursing herself inwardly, until he figures out what’s going on and plays the gay card.
Ryland just knows she’s the one. He will stop.at nothing to have her, even pretending to be gay to get close. He has no clue how bad this plan will backfire in the end. When Maggie decides she is ready to Date again, he takes it upon himself to be a CLAM JAMMER. How dare he. LMAO. This is where it gets even more hilarious.
Definition: the female equivalent of a cock block.
Example: You’re chatting with a guy you’re interested in and your friend comes along and lays claim to him.
That’s my life—except it’s worse. My friend who keeps “jamming” me is my gay roommate and if that isn’t a W.T.F. moment, I’m not sure what is.
Fact: He went home with three—yes, three—of the guys I had been so sure were into me.
Fact: He’s really pissing me off. I mean, hello? I’m trying to get back in the saddle, but I’ll never manage to get a boyfriend before the age of fifty if he keeps this up.
Fact: Secretly, I wonder what it would be like if he weren’t gay. Why do all the hot, sweet, tender-hearted guys have to be gay?
Fact: My gay-dar needs a serious tune-up.
The day I interviewed for the room to rent, everything changed. I knew I had met “the girl”, except there was one small problem: she didn’t want anything to do with men. I recognized a top-notch force field when I saw one. She’d been burned badly and didn’t want to deal with a heterosexual guy as a roommate. I could’ve turned around and found another place to live, but I wanted to live there—with her.
So I had to go “undercover”.
Fact: I’m in love with my roommate.
Fact: I’m a likely candidate for carpal tunnel surgery since all the action I’ve had for the past year has been my hand.
Fact: She’s going to hate me if I come clean now.
Fact: I’m not giving up. Which means, I’ll just have to continue to run defense until I figure out a way to get Maggie to see the “real” me.
The me that loves her.
The me that would never do her wrong.
Until then, I’ll keep running off every guy who shows any interest.
Until then, I’ll continue to Clam Jam.
