Roommate Romance by Maggie Riley
Publication Date: December 12th, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Falling in love is not on Allison Lawson’s to do list. As a professional stage manager, she’s got a plan for everything – and she doesn’t like surprises. So when she shows up at the apartment she’s subletting, the last thing she’s expecting is a roommate. Especially a tall, hunky one.
Shane Garrett is back in Brooklyn. After his parents died five years ago, he moved upstate to take care of his younger sister. But now she’s off at college, and he’s ready to return to the bachelor life he used to have: living on his own, a fridge full of beer, and a new girl every night. But that didn’t include a surprise appearance of a sexy brunette in his shower. He hadn’t even taken her out to dinner yet.
Now Allie and Shane are sharing a one bedroom apartment – and bedroom eyes. Neither can deny the sparks that are flying between the two of them, but a relationship is not on Allie’s agenda. Can Shane convince Allie that you can’t plan for love?
Review by Susan:
This is not a trope I normally read so I didn’t have any expectations going in, I was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed this book, I read it in one sitting. I loved Shane, he had put his life on hold to take care of his sister and was starting to live again. His character was loveable and at times swoon worthy. Allie was a bit quirky, she had a list for everything, didn’t really go with the flow . The chemistry between them is off the charts and literally scorches the pages, at times I wish there had been more of a romance between them, not just what happened in the bedroom. I loved Josh, hope he gets his own book in the future, Joanna and Reagan were likeable too. Overall a good read, put some time aside as when you start you won’t want to stop. 4 Stars
