Roomies by Christina Lauren

UGH. Sometimes I just into a book and just read it lackadaisically throughout the day. Other times I read a book and it completely consumes my time and I can't put it down. This book was that type of book. I could not put it down. Calvin and Holland were perfection and I wish I had ten more books full of just them. This book had it all. It had the angst. GOODNESS, it had the angst. It also had the emotional turmoil and character growth that I ADORE, while also having a compelling tory full of ALL THE GOODNESS. I just can't brag enough about this book. I can't rave enough about the characters, or just the way it sucks you in page after page. I can however tell you about all the accent and swoon-worthy scenes you will fall in love with. Oh, and I can't forget the hilarity, I LAUGHED SO HARD. I can't wait for more from this duo because they ROCK IT. Buy on Amazon: Add to Goodreads


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?
