Editorial reviews

Editors Select, December 2017

It's no secret that I'm a massive Christina Lauren fan, so when I saw that their latest stand-alone novel, Roomies, was coming out in December I jumped at the chance to make it my editor pick. In fact, I even re-listened to Beautiful Bastard - the first book in their popular series by the same name - to get me in the right frame of mind. Unlike Beautiful Bastard, however, Roomies has a surprising innocence to it that caught me off guard. Twenty-five-year-old Holland is stumbling her way through adulthood, and she shocks even herself when she decides to save her uncle's Broadway show by marrying the sexy Irish guitarist he wants to hire for the orchestra - who happens to be in the country illegally. Their slow-burning relationship, and Holland's own journey of self-discovery, was charming, natural, and completely real to this subway riding, Broadway obsessed NYC gal. PS, K. C. Sheridan needs to narrate more - her Irish accent is officially my new obsession. —Katie, Audible Editor

Publisher's summary

From subway to Broadway to happily ever after. Modern love in all its thrill, hilarity, and uncertainty has never been so compulsively enjoyable as in New York Times and number one international best-selling author Christina Lauren's (Beautiful Bastard, Dating You/Hating You) new romance.

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 realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?
