I’m holding strong until the third night of our new arrangement when we get drunk and he confesses his biggest secret of all: he’s cursed when it comes to sex. Apparently he’s a god in bed, and women instantly fall in love with him.
“Falling in love didn’t feel like I thought it would—like I was losing a piece of myself to a man. No, it felt like I was gaining something else instead. Something bigger than just me. But I knew this something was so big and unpredictable that it had the power to completely destroy me if it went sideways.”
The last time I saw my best friend’s younger brother, he was a geek wearing braces. But when Cannon shows up to crash in my spare room, I get a swift reality check.
Now twenty-four, he’s broad shouldered and masculine, and so sinfully sexy, I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to enjoy. At six-foot-something with lean muscles hiding under his T-shirt, a deep sexy voice, and full lips that pull into a smirk when he studies me, he’s pure temptation.
Fresh out of a messy breakup, he doesn’t want any entanglements. But I can resist, right? I’m calling bullshit. In fact, I’m going to prove him wrong, and if I rack up a few much-needed orgasms in the process, all the better. There’s no way I’m going to fall in love with Cannon. But once we start… I realize betting against him may have been the biggest mistake of my life.
This was intriguing. The Roommate is probably the first book I’ve read that was actually age ‘appropriate’ for me. Meaning not YA or Middle grade. Is this what 20 something year olds read in their spare time? Cause it’s not bad. I should’ve delved into this world sooner to be honest.
To start with, this was a POV, so we got both Cannon and Paige’s thoughts through out the book. Which was amazing! Any book that has the opposite genders point of view is a win for me. I’m always curious about what goes on in their head. Even though, some of the things were unrealistic in my opinion. But what do I know?
Not to mention, this was short and straight to the point. Sometimes, when you are stressed and focused on so many things, you need a change of pace. So, instead of reading my usual YA that has crazy ups and downs, I needed a silly, soft book. This was perfect. There was romance, friendship, life lessons and drama. However, it was completely over shadowed by the ‘love’..if you know what I mean.
So, do I recommend this?
Do I recommend a book with funny characters, angst, awesome love scenes and a sexy doctor…I don’t know..You Tell ME!!
I am soo reading this whole series!!
Until Next Time!
