Roomies by Christina Lauren

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

ROOMIES is the latest romance written by the dynamic duo, Christina Lauren, and it’s a DAZZLING HIT!!! Christina Lauren FLAWLESSLY weaves a MOVING and MASTERFUL tale of unconventional love threaded with family loyalty. This romance, easily devoured in one sitting, is DELICIOUSLY DELIGHTFUL. ROOMIES is simply IRRESISTIBLE!!!

Centered around a musical theatre in the Big Apple, ROOMIES closely follows aspiring novelist, Holland, as she embarks on a journey of self-discovery where her selfless act of family loyalty sets the stage for love. During her self-discovery, the beautiful and newly emboldened Holland finds her muse in a marriage of convenience, wedding a musician, Calvin. The handsome Irishman may be the luck and love her life has been missing.

Why on earth does it feel like I nearly want to leap without looking?

I ADORED the quirky and animated Holland and her lovable family. The family dynamic is endearing, so tender and touching that I could not help but feel like a part of this close-nit collection of characters too. Calvin is as sweet as he is sexy. Calvin’s friendly and flirty demeanor along with piercing green eyes and ruggedly handsome looks were mesmerizing. I fell head-over-heels in love with this MELT-WORTHY HERO. These characters felt genuine…so REFRESHINGLY REAL.

ROOMIES is FRIENDSHIP ON FIRE!!! Holland and Calvins’ attraction is fused with angst, an adrenaline rush that made me feel ALIVE. This hero and heroines’ chemistry is UNDENIABLE. Their relationship is so sweet, so smoldering, so passionate, so perfect.

“I think you might be the best girl there ever was.”

“I think you’re the best boy there ever was, too.”

This romance is no rapid fire; ROOMIES is a sweet, smoldering, and soul-stirring SLOW BURN. This story is a spark of fire that turns into hot flames, flames that set friendship on fire where the hero and heroine can’t fight their chemistry. ROOMIES is a HEADY and HEARTFELT story of slow-burning love and fierce family loyalty, one I LIVED, FELT, and LOVED. I felt every emotion that the hero and heroine felt; their unconventional love story was MINE. I lost myself in ROOMIES, vanishing into the Big Apple Broadway life, SPELLBOUND, as it seized every part of me: body, heart, and soul.

“I don’t like to think of you playing a side part in a story. You’ve suddenly become a very large part of mine.”

This SPELLBINDING ROMANCE springs to life!!! Christina Laurens’ FRESH and FLAWLESS writing with vivid detail, an original plot, and compelling and charming characters pull you in, wrapping you around this story where you’ll never want to leave. ROOMIES is a romantic journey, a FULL-BLOWN IMMERSION, one that I could not help but picture as a movie playing in my head while reading. I was BESOTTED with this book!!! The final-wrap of this passionate production of slow-burning love is so worth the wait. ROOMIES merits a big round of applause for a romance felt from beginning to end.

Marriages of convenience are so…inconvenient.

Rescued by Calvin McLoughlin from a would-be subway attacker, Holland Bakker pays the brilliant musician back by pulling some of her errand-girl strings and getting him an audition with a big-time musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until he admits his student visa has expired and he’s in the country illegally.

Holland impulsively offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York, her growing infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves from awkward roommates to besotted lovers, Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway. In the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting, what will it take for Holland and Calvin to realise that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?
