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?
“I’ve never done this before. I just know I’m falling for the girl I married…”
Gahh!! This is my favorite trope ever. I have no clue why but man I love these books. This is pretty light on the angst that I normally like but over all it’s witty, endearing and heart warming. Christina and Lauren have proven time and time again that they are the perfect writing partners. Roomies is just the latest example of this and another one of their books I couldn’t put down. From the very beginning we see that these two are perfect for each other. I loved them together and their smokin hot chemistry. Grab this one now you will not be sorry!!
“I like being with you.”
“I think I’ve made it pretty clear you can have me if you want me.”
