New Release+Review: Roomies by Christina Lauren

Roomies by [Lauren, Christina]


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. 

For months Holland Bakker has invented excuses to descend into the subway station near her apartment, drawn to the captivating music performed by her street musician crush. Lacking the nerve to actually talk to the gorgeous stranger, fate steps in one night in the form of a drunken attacker. Calvin Mcloughlin rescues her, but quickly disappears when the police start asking questions.

Using the only resource she has to pay the brilliant musician back, Holland gets Calvin an audition with her uncle, Broadway’s hottest musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until his reason for disappearing earlier becomes clear: he’s in the country illegally, his student visa having expired years ago.

Seeing that her uncle needs Calvin as much as Calvin needs him, a wild idea takes hold of her. Impulsively, she marries the Irishman, her infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves and Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway—in the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting—will Holland and Calvin to realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?

I really enjoyed this book by Christina Lauren. This is the second book that I have read by this author and I love how their storytelling and writing style just suck me in from beginning to end. Throughout the whole story I felt like I was in the story as opposed to just reading the story.  I was laughing out several times as I read this story. It’s so hard for me to find a good romantic comedy that doesn’t lose sight of the romance along the way! Christina Lauren nailed it with this story and you will not be disappointed with Roomies.

“I’ve never done this before. I just know I’m falling for the girl I married.”

Holland and Calvin are in a marriage of convenience but as time progresses real feelings emerge. I loved these two characters together but at times I wanted to shake some sense into them as I read. A lot of their issues in my opinion could have been solved if they just communicated with each other throughout the book. I did love how their relationship from fake marriage to real love was properly developed. You felt their connection as it happened and I love me a slow burn novel. We did have some angst filled moments that had me holding my breath as well. I also loved the secondary cast of characters aside from Lulu once you read you will see why! This book was the perfection combination of sweet, sexy and funny!
