✪ Roomies ✪ Christina Lauren ✪

Marriages of convenience are soinconvenient.

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 Broadwayuntil he admits his student visa has expired and hes 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?

It feels like I have been waiting for Roomies forever and it was wonderful to return from my Christmas break to find it waiting for me in the mail.

Christina Lauren are a duo who I would read their work, even if they were writing Chinese takeaway menus.  I haven't come across a book of theirs that I didn't like yet.

Roomies is sweet, touching and romantic.  A heroine who will do what it takes to help her family.  A down on his luck hero who makes the girls toes curl.  A cast of wonderful extras round out Dani and Calvin's beautiful story.

I did like that there wasn't OTT drama for dramas sake.  Sure, our lovelies have their problems, but they react (mostly) like adults.

I freaking adore Robert and Jeff - don't want to give anything away about them so I will only say how I love love love them! I need more!

I thoroughly enjoyed Roomies.  I felt all the emotions, and couldn't wait to turn each page.

Can't wait for more from this fabulous duo.
