"From subway to Broadway to happily ever after. Modern love in all its thrill, hilarity, and uncertainty has never been so compulsively readable as in New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren's (Beautiful Bastard, Dating You / Hating You) new romance. 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 bigtime 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 realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?"--… (més)

Set in NYC? Check. Hot musician who happens to be from Ireland? Check. Kind of lost 20something looking for purpose? Check. Oh and add in a pair of uncles who I want to adopt me and you've got Roomies. In this standalone from amazing power duo Christina Lauren, we meet Holland and Calvin. Holland has been floundering her way through life for a while in NYC (who can't relate to that?) and Calvin has been doing his thing playing music, being hot, you know the drill. Anyway, the two embark on a journey into fake relationship town and both their lives change. At times funny, at times uncomfortable and at all times awesome, Roomies checked all my boxes. I will say that I am a bit disappointed in the ending. It's not a bad ending, I just wanted more. That is a sign of a good book but there were still questions I had pending when the book ended that I guess I'm forced to imagine answers for. If you're looking for a nice, light romantic read, Roomies should go to the top of your list. ( )

Pandemic read. I continue to like this author duo for this sort of reading. Read while recovering from my second COVID jab. ( )

Another good one. The premise is a bit out there, but I liked the execution. I think I found my new favorite romance author. ( )

A fun, quick read. ( )

Mmm. I like Christina Lauren books, but I'm starting to see a pattern with the heroines - they are all in, then doubt themselves and doubt their lovers. Sometimes as a plot line it works and sometimes it is a little illogical. Holland can't seem to read Cal; she can't trust what he tells her, but there doesn't seem to be a substantial reason why not, it's just a plot device. Like Sweet Filthy Boy, I find the young heroines are bold but not brave, The progress of the budding relationships seems to rest almost entirely with the heroes. The women's ability to communicate with their lovers is bizarrely stunted. To me, the men come off remarkably well for managing to get the lovers over their hurdles. If it was left to the women, then heaven help us. I know this is a probably a stereotypical romance approach, and purely fictional, I feel discouraged about women after these two latest reads!

I can't not mention the narrator, K.C. Sheridan. I thought she was the worst reader where I've finished the book! Her voice is delightful and perfect for this kind of book, but her sing song reading was weird and annoying! I just had to grit my teeth to get through it. The sing song is a mannerism and I'm amazed the producer didn't rein it in.

She does the voices well, such as Cal's Irish voice, but at times she keeps the Irish accent for Holland which is a bit confusing.

Imagine my surprise when I see that she's narrated heaps of books!! ( )
