Roomies by Christina Lauren: Upcoming Release with Review

I was sent this book from publisher.  My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review. 


"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?"


My Rating: 4 Stars

Format: Paperback

Release Date: December 5th, 2017

This started off with a little mystery/suspense and I was not sure where it was going to go.  I liked it though, as it pulled me in right away.  It was not a great beginning to how Calvin and Holland meet.

I was not sure if I was going to love the theater aspect of the story, but it worked.  I also love how the author describes music hitting the soul and that is what brings the characters together. 
This is actually my first Christina Lauren read.  I really enjoyed her writing style.  It just flows so easily leaving you to fly through the story. 
I also loved the characters.  What is there not to love about a sexy Irish musician and a book lover and writer.  I think they paired well together. 
Overall, this was so cute and I loved it.  I highly recommend this especially for music and theater lovers.
