Roomies by Christina Lauren 


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?


4 out of 5 stars

This was such a fun, entertaining read. From Holland’s quirky self to Calvin's sweetness, and the bits of drama and angst mixed in, I thought this was a really great story and I totally enjoyed it!

I liked Holland a lot and really enjoyed her journey of figuring out who she was in the midst of this crazy situation. Calvin was wonderful and I loved his sweet looks and the building chemistry between them. I loved the fun and flirty, and the ease between them. There were a lot of fun scenes that had me laughing and some emotional ones too. There was a nice amount of drama at the end stressing me out. It was filled with angst and I couldn't wait for them to get to their HEA.

I really liked the writing. It took me until about 20% for everything to click for me and then I was all in. This was first person, single POV and I thought it was done really well. I thought Holland had a great voice, I understood the struggle she was going through trying to find herself. I also felt like I really got to know Calvin even though I wasn't in his head. The story flowed nicely and I enjoyed the details and descriptions.

I was just so entertained and had a good time losing myself in the story. There were some stressful moments for sure but but between the fun and the angst it was well balanced. All in all this was a great, entertaining read with just a touch of heat and a bit of drama!
