Pandora Ann Phillips' life is just normal-crazy

Her mom's a psychic, her dad's mom is a snob, her mom's parental units are "too down to earth" and her best friends are newlyweds. Okay, so her best friends being newlyweds isn't really abnormal, but living with them in a cramped two-bedroom apartment definitely is. Sex, sex, sex is totally on their minds. Actually it's not on

1.5 Stars!

Sweet Jesus that was the LONGEST shortest book I've ever read. It's like it would NEVER end.

At first I thought it was funny but then it was just became cheesy and lame. It wasn't even believable.

One average redheaded chick moves in with these three gorgeous models--one from Australia, one from England, one from I don't even remember where.

And they are all three attached at the hip, show up everywhere she is...and I mean EVERYWHERE. One seems to like her but we get strung along trying
1.5 WTF Was That Stars

Sweet baby Jesus, what did I just read? Even several hours removed from the story, I’m still not exactly sure. All I can say with certainty is our gal Dora needs to find a new place to live before her newlywed BFFs run her out of the apartment she currently shares with them with their constant sexing, She answers an add for a fourth but seemingly unnecessary roommate, and moves in with the three top male models EVAH who also happen to be childhood best friends. Those models

Why oh why did I read this book?


Well, this started off fun, light and interesting. Pandora (Dora) roommates have married and she is the third wheel and the “sounds” of the newlyweds ignites her decision to seek other living arrangements.

Dora sees an advertisement for a roommate and when she goes to check the place out it’s magnificent and her roommates are THREE HOT MODELS. Drew, Collin and Liam are described yummy but really all three of them insisting that Dora be their fourth, while

Warning!! If you attempt to read this book, you'll probably feel like this at about the 8-10% mark

The story is completely unbelievable I couldn't find anything I enjoyed. I skimmed until I just had to throw in the towel. The characters are lame. The story is lame. It was torturous. I can't even bother to describe the story because
DNFed at 27%

I'm not feeling it at all, and seeing as my friends, whom I trust said it won't improve, I have better things to do than torture myslef.

I am giving this a three star rating based solely on the writing. She's a good writer, but this story is a mess.

SPOILER ALERT! Here are my issues with the book:

1. This would never happen in real life. Pandora needs to move out because her best friends/roommates are recently married and won't stop having loud sex. That's totally acceptable. Then, she answers a 'roommate wanted' ad. That's acceptable. But everything else that happens isn't. She goes to meet the people from the ad. They greet each

So this was bad.

Me, the queen of reading reviews of shit to death before reading, really should have held out for more to come out before taking the plunge.

I could go on and on why I didn't like it but it would really give the whole book away.

Have heard mixed things about this one...
Vikki ~ *squee* lite ~
Yeah - didn't work for me at all. The premise was good - I liked the three hot guy roommate idea - but the execution left something to be desired.

The plot was all over the place. I couldn't even decide who the "hero" was for a while - and it had me contemplating all sorts of weird paranormal scenarios.

Then when we finally got to the relationship part - I totally didn't feel the connection between the hero and heroine. They got together and then split so fast it made my head spin.

* In a nutshell: First 3 pages had me cracking the end, I had a stomachache & it wasn't from laughter.

I don't enjoy rating low or writing unsavory reviews. (I know..."If you don't have anything nice to say...blah, blah, blah."
But a huge reason I document on here is to remind myself what I read/felt when I look back & have book amnesia.

It really seemed to me the author had a rough time deciding what genre she wanted this book to be. I was anticipating a rom/com. It star

Its for $0.98 at the moment. I total steal for such an amazing book.

There is a new rom com book in town guys! ;)

Just take a look at the cover, if that doesn't tempt you into reading the book then read the blurb and if that too doesn't tempt you into reading this amazing book.. well.. read my review :P haha

Three "drool worthy" male models that are looking for a fourth roommate and they want her...and won't take no for an answer.

This book was amazing!! At least I enjoyed it.. was something light

One of the people I follow showed this book so I decided to pick it up because it sounded fun and was only $0.99.

I hate writing negative reviews because I know the author worked very hard to write the story. However, this was not a very good story. There was almost no character development at all. I've never read a book where i have said that. i can't tell you anything about the models except 2) they ate models and 2) where they came from. They just follow one another around and chase Dora like

I didn't have expectations going into this book. And maybe I should've. But I didn't, so maybe that's a good thing?

Because, if only.

If only the whole psychic-empath business was scrapped altogether.

If only the little anecdotes at the end of each chapter from the guy interested in Dora weren't so creepy-stalkerish.

If only Colin wasn't a complete cop-out by the end of the novel, and Liam not gay, and Drew not an annoying human being.

If only.

I’m simply shocked at the low ratings. Seriously shocked. I finished this book in about five hours, unable to put it down. It was refreshing, funny, beautifully written. Predictable you say? Yes, just like the 99% of fiction romance. But did it entertain? You bet it did. At one point it didn’t feel like I was reading a book but instead I was watching a movie. I could picture the mom and the grandmas bickering in the kitchen, an embarrassed Pandora as they all sat at the dinner table at her paren ...more

Honestly... just look at that cover! I mean don't get me wrong, the blurb sounds fun and fantastic, but this had me at the cover. :)

Per the author's Facebook page, she is hoping for an August release.

**After reading a lot of the negative reviews on here, I wanted to add the plot unrealistic? Yes. Is the plot in most new adult books unrealistic? Hell yes! This book is just fun. Like something you would daydream about that you know would never happen in a million years. I just enjoyed it purely because of that.**

When I was offered an ARC of this book, I was hesitant. I don't do romance. I don't even do chick flicks. Very few romancy books have been able to really hold my attent

I thought that the plot line would be good but after the second chapter, I just felt it was super cheesy. Three guys instantly connecting with Dora ( and forgive me but I kept thinking of the explorer!). Then they were always showing up and going everywhere with her??? This one just did not work for me.

This had so much potential and it just was so..... undeveloped, random and boring. I hate giving negative reviews, but this book needs a good round of editing. It was a great concept, just a not-so-great execution.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this book. I seriously could not put it down and was up all night reading it. Not in the "I am exaggerating and was up past my bedtime" sense, but in the "Holy Cow! I need to be up in 30 minutes" I really stayed up all night way. I am going to try really har

I find myself repeatedly jumping back to the reviews of this book trying to figure out what effing genre this is: empathy/paranormal, chick lit, NA, ménage/erotica
and trying to care, honestly. I want to like it, but it's just not working for me. I might give it a few more pages before I give up entirely.

Well, I stuck with it and finished the book just now. It picked up a bit later, but I still think there was too much wasted space in the middle with Pandora's whining about how 'average' s

1 1/2 stars...I'm sorry, but this book was ridiculous. The idea of the story was fun and cute and I thought it could be an entertaining read if it was written the right way. I was totally disappointed.

First, the plot is just laughable. She shows up to check out a new apartment that has advertised for a new roommate only to find 3 gorgeous famously rich and handsome male models. She literally stays there for about 2 seconds before running out on them and then they proceed to all follow her to h

I bought this one because it was cheap and the plot seemed funny, but alas, it was a DNF.
It started out good, though, here's the first paragraph :

OMG - this was such a great book!! It was hilarious from beginning to end and I just adore all the characters! Dora is such a typical low-key girl who doesn't want a lot of drama in her life. HA! Wait till you meet your family! Her mom is a psychic with a spiritual guide and her grandmas are complete opposites but both equally embarrassing, and very entertaining! (I just loved the grandmas!) Then there's her three new roommates, all of which happen to be mouthwatering male models with sexy accen ...more

I'm ashamed to say I spent $0.99 on this book.
This stiry is about Pandora(Dora), who moves in with THREE PROFESSIONAL MALE MODELS ... enough said. I have no idea what the author was trying to do. I skimmed through half the story. All of the events were just too go to be true, it was too much weirdness in one story, and half of it didn't even make sense.

This was a wonderful, fun, easy on the emotions, read. Perfect remedy for a book hangover! As a rabid PNR fan (okay, so a rabid ANY genre fan), I loved the touch of paranormal to the plot. The bickering of the grandmas at the dinner table was hilarious and reminded me a bit of one of my fave authors, Janet Evanovich.

I am so looking forward to more books by Amanda!
