Roommates With Benefits by Nicole Williams


AP new - synopsis.jpg
Soren Decker. He’s the epitome of the “bad boy, good man” persona. The best of both worlds. The worst of them too. He’s the type of guy most girls would not mind sharing a confined space with, except my new roommate isn’t all swagger and chiseled abs.

He’s bossy. Messy. Cocky. Infuriating. Doesn’t believe in personal space. Has no qualms about roaming the apartment with a loincloth-sized towel cinched around his waist. Seems under the delusion he’s my personal protector (refer back to infuriating). He plays college baseball and holds down a part-time job—I don’t know where he finds the time to get on my nerves.

We’re got nothing in common . . . except for one thing. Our attraction to one another. And in six hundred square feet of shared space, the tension only has so much room to grow before one of us gives in to temptation. But really, what chance do a couple of young kids chasing their dreams in the big city have of making it?

Since Soren claims I know squat about sports (he might have a semi-point), here’s a stat for him—one in a million. That’s our odds.
Review by Victoria:
What would you do to make your dreams come true? Would you move across the country to a city you’d never been to with no money to your name and a hope and a prayer? Because that’s exactly what Hayden did. A small town country girl dreaming of being the next best supermodel has landed a position with a modeling agency! Hayden jumps on a plane and arrives in the big city to chase those dreams. Her first stop is the apartment she found online that sounded so spectacular, she couldn’t pass it up. But when she gets there….it’s not the lavish big city apartment in the sky she dreamed of. And her roommate…..isn’t the girl she thought she’d be living with. Problem number one, Soren isn’t a girl at all. He’s a boy….man really, a rather attractive all American baseball player dreaming of the big leagues.
Soren is exactly what you’d expect of an athlete looking to make it big. He’s insanely attractive, hard working student living and working around baseball. He may not be exactly what Hayden was hoping for but she’s really got no other options, having used the last of her money to take a cab. She can make this work for a while.
What happens when your roommate turns out to be exactly what you didn’t know you were looking for though? Can people really go from being roommates to more without it blowing up in their face?
Hayden and Soren both have big dreams and have set high goals for themselves. Their dreams are what drive them above and beyond. Can they make something work while chasing those dreams? Or will it just end in disaster? This book gripped me from page one. Hayden lets us into her innermost thoughts and feelings. You’ll cringe with her, you’ll celebrate with her, you’ll turn into a big puddle of arousal with her. Soren is a man we’ve only dreamed of meeting. He’s sweet and kind one minute and fiery hot the next. He’ll protect you every chance he can while dreaming of the dirty things. Their story is a bumpy one, be forewarned, I cried. But it’s also lighthearted and loving. Their relationship develops slowly, letting you savor the confusion and awkward beginnings relationships can have. In the end, your heart will be so full for them, it’ll feel like it’s going to burst. From the catwalk to the baseball diamond, this novel has a little something for everyone! 5 Stars!
