Review: Roomies - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

From subway to Broadway to happily ever after. Modern love in all its thrill, hilarity, and uncertainty has never been so compulsively readable as in New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren’s (Beautiful Bastard, Dating You / Hating You) new romance.

Marriages of convenience are so…inconvenient. 

For months Holland Bakker has invented excuses to descend into the subway station near her apartment, drawn to the captivating music performed by her street musician crush. Lacking the nerve to actually talk to the gorgeous stranger, fate steps in one night in the form of a drunken attacker. Calvin Mcloughlin rescues her, but quickly disappears when the police start asking questions.

Using the only resource she has to pay the brilliant musician back, Holland gets Calvin an audition with her uncle, Broadway’s hottest musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until his reason for disappearing earlier becomes clear: he’s in the country illegally, his student visa having expired years ago.

Seeing that her uncle needs Calvin as much as Calvin needs him, a wild idea takes hold of her. Impulsively, she marries the Irishman, her infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves and Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway—in the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting—will Holland and Calvin to realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?

Review: Roomies

A temporary arrangement causes problems between two roommates in Christina Lauren’s modern love story, ROOMIES.

For months Holland Bakker watched a boy playing his guitar on the subway station steps. His intensity and talent captivated her in a way that kept her coming back. And so when her Broadway director uncle loses a musician, she can’t think of anyone other than Calvin. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime and best yet, he nails the audition.

Trouble is, he can’t take the job because his student visa expired years ago.

Desperate to help both her uncle and her crush, she proposes something totally outlandish.

First comes marriage…

Newlyweds (and strangers) Calvin and Holland move in together and give his dream a go. Soon Calvin is trending on Twitter, the new hot talent on Broadway everyone is talking about. Everything is too good, too easy and all that pretending falls to the wayside as real feelings take hold—even if they remain unsaid.

But then Calvin discovers something Holland held back, and Holland learns about lies Calvin told and everything spirals out of control in a way that feels nothing like an act.

Could their charade turn into a real marriage or would it all fall apart as quickly as it came together?

With humor and heart and a dash of that Broadway magic, the story is as charming as it is addictive. I devoured the novel in one sitting, loving every moment of this irresistible romance. Christina Lauren consistently delivers the best kind of books… the kind impossible to put down that leave you with the biggest smile and the best book hangover. I loved ROOMIES, and I’m positive you will too!
