London Reed is on the hunt for a place to live before the start of her second year in college. Either she is successful and can enjoy her student life without the pressure of her parents breathing down her neck, or she goes back home and clashes with her parents.

Because London doesn’t have a filter.

''You’re a weird one, aren’t you?''

She basically tells it as she sees it. S

I can't wait to share with you this light, fun and sassy New Adult Contemporary Romance. It's my first attempt at something so light and hopefully you will enjoy it and have as much fun as I had writing it.

Expect innuendos, a few sexy scenes, some jealousy and most of all...many crazy banters.

The cover and blurb reveal is scheduled June 1st. I hope you'll be ready to share with your friends! :)

EDIT June 1st: Here it is! What do you think about the cover? The blurb?

This was a quick read with a really interesting plot line. The story had a lot of potential but I found it extremely frustrating.

Byron was promiscuous, to say the least. Even after deciding that he liked London, he constantly had females in his bedroom. But he didn't think it was okay for London to have any guys around. He was such a hypocritical tool! And he was always saying to London, "You didn't just say that," after she would say something that he deemed guy-like. Yes, she did! I t

This story had be in stitches from the get go with a animated banter between London and Byron. London's personality could make anyone love her...She's bubbly, fun, up-front, blue and deep down she's definitely a hopeless romantic...even if it's in her head :P
Byron, the ex-soldier, strong, sexy, rugged and rough with a short fuse...They're so wrong for each other but so right at the same time.

I'm glad I finally read a book where the main character isn't stick thin as well! Yeahh London way be sel

I have been dying to get my hands on this book since I first ran across it! The title alone just dragged me in and had me hooked! Then I made the mistake of actually reading the blurb for it...holy mother I must have this book!

Lucky, lucky me, Stephanie Witter allowed me to have an ARC copy of the book in exchange for an honest review...this meant I got it a day early!!! Hahahaha suckers! (Okay...just kidding...well I'm mainly kidding about the suckers part...)

Let's talk story line for starters.

I really enjoyed this book but I wish the main characters, London and Byron, could have gotten together sooner. It happened way too late and then the book was over. :(

As for the rest of the book, I couldn't put it down. It was funny, sweet, sexy, and touching. I know soldiers have a hard time once they come back home so Byron's attitude is expected. He can't be bubbly and fun after everything he went through. As for London, I wish we got more of her past with Ryan. She's still hurting after ever

I've been a fan of Stephanie Witter since reading the FAB Patch Up and once I heard she was releasing this book I've been eagerly awaiting to read it and it did not disappoint!!!
I soon fell in love with both the male and female main characters and found myself often laughing out loud at their witty banter!!
I can't quite express to u just how much I fell in love with Byron and my only complaint about this book was that I wanted MORE of him!! ( ok maybe that's just me being greedy!!)

I am really disappointed. I was looking forward to reading this book for months, especially after reading Patch Up (Patch Up, #1) by Stephanie Witter . Within a few pages of the book, I lost interest. Byron was always amazed if London said a curse word or two. It just wasn't believable. London was so effen annoying at times. It was hard to relate to her character. Just do it! Just have sex! Don't waste my time with sexual tension with a third of the book with bland conversations. The character developments was weak and flawed. The flo

Overall a good read. The chemistry and sexual tension between Byron and London was combustible. Their banter was fun but it really bothered me that he kept sleeping with other females. I don't think he quite understood that if he felt one way about London having any other than she probably didn't like it when he had more females either but then she did throw out some crazy mixed singnals.

Sometimes I was getting so frustrated with them both that I wanted to smack their heads together and scream g

If you are looking for a book overflowing with sexual tension, a man whore and a girl with no filter on her mouth...this is the book for you.

I really enjoyed this book as I started it this morning and have finished it already.
The banter between Byron and London is very funny and they are both very likable characters. The sexual tension between them is just overflowing and when it bursts, look out!!

Very enjoyable indeed.

There are more books to come in this series and I will look out for them

I couldn't connect with the characters. There was very little character development so this is no surprise. I was more interested in the MC's younger siblings romance, I'm hoping that's next in the series because I would definitely read that one. The story line could've been fleshed out a bit more, the romance was a little confusing and the timeline was whack. This was an easy read, standalone with cheating.
This needed H’s POV. Without it...he sucked and she was a fucking doormat. They never even dealt with his repeated fucking of OW.

She was the side piece in HS to some douche that used her naïveté...then tried to keep doing it at college. And then the H, KNOWING THIS WAS HER HANG-UP...did the EXACT FUCKING THING to her and he wondered WHY she was unable to commit to him.

Roomies-to-lovers story... I love reading these kind of stories. This was a fun read. Loved the playful nature between Byron and London! I Look forward to reading the next book in the series. :)
So I just finished the New Adult Contemporary Romance novel, 2B or Not 2B? by Stephanie Witter, and for the most part loved it! I really liked how London wasn't afraid to be herself, and that she had a good relationship with her (not so) little sister. London reminds me of myself and her relationships remind me of my own.

London and Byron's relationship was awkward, funny, and most of all, realistic! Byron has a lot of baggage, but it doesn't stop him from opening up and becoming more human, m

~ I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.~

This was the second book I have read by Witter. It was quite different from the first one I read by her, Patch Up. 2B or Not 2B was a romantic comedy that involved much lighter subject matter. However, it was just as good as Patch Up.

London is a college student looking for a roommate. She doesn't want to live in a dorm, and she definitely doesn't want to live with her parents. She shows up at Byron's apartment a

Will come back and give a detailed review, but let me just say that when Stephanie sent me a ARC of 2B or Not 2B, I knew I'd be pushing all of the other books on my to-read shelf down the queue so I could get to this one. I am not disappointed at all with that decision. I love London and I LOVE Byron!!! more details coming soon, I promise!

As promised - London is ready to move out of her parent's house and to start life on her own. An ad in the paper brings her to Byron's door but she's so not w

This first time novel from Stephanie Witter is downright funny! London “Bridge” is very much her own woman. She’s unique and witty and very self-confident. Except when it comes to love, relationships and guys in general. In walks Byron “Lord” and he is a typical college male: horny womanizer but with a pain bottled up inside him that he won’t let anyone touch. London basically begs and manipulates her way into his spare bedroom as a his new roomy, but only on a trial basis. And thus begins the d ...more

I fell in love with the book’s story as soon as I read it..Sometimes these love-at-first-sight books are a major disappointment..But sometimes they get even better..And that’s what happened with this book.

2B or not 2B is funny, sexy and so damn fun to read!! It combines everything; sweetness and hotness, love and fights, fun and emotional scars, while the story is very well created. It’s smart and utterly delicious!

London and Byron are 2 absolutely amazing characters!

Looking for a sassy, fun, sexy, new read? Well look no further than 2B or Not 2B? from Stephanie Witter. This story has it all; love, heartache, betrayal and that is just London’s back story. Throw in Byron’s war torn past that he refuses to discuss and his need to wallow with a different bed mate each night and you have the back story. Do not be put off thinking this is just a hot romp. This book has heart and soul as well.

I absolutely loved this book! The banter that goes on between London and Byron had me cracking up and you could cut their sexual tension with a knife. I think it was a great story about love. Loving yourself as well as loving others.

Both London and Byron have past scars (in Byron’s case it’s more than figurative) to deal with. There was no instant connection necessarily but London’s candid way of speaking and frank mannerisms slowly pulled Byron out of his funk. Byron’s willingness to put up wit

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! It was funny, witty, intelligent and a little shocking here and there. London reminds me a bit of myself in some ways and was a fun loving and outgoing character for much of the book. Byron is a bit of a ladies man. The fact that she convinces him to rent the room to her so they become roommates was classic. Their friendship developed quite nicely without either of their attraction really interfering. It was fun to watch it blossom. It was painful when they almost let it dis ...more

What a funny on the edge of your seat romance. This book has a little bit of everything. Emotional pasts and from both London and Byron are so realistic, that you can feel the hurt and relate to the emotions being felt. And I thoroughly enjoyed reading a book where the girl was "real" not the stick, and way too hard on herself, because THAT is relatable lol. I also love the reality of love coming from, and when you least expect it, because that is how some of the best relationships are made, min ...more

I LOVE IT!!! I recommend this book, even if it was sometimes frustating!
The story was marvelous, the characters (London and Byron)so sexy and funny,the chemistry between hot and the reading... so fucking amazing!But behind the "lightness" of the story, it kind of makes us think about trama after coming back from war.

One of the favorite quotes: "Because you're my fucking bridge back to a life i thought i would never be good enough to have, a life i thought i shouldn't be the one living".

Sweet baby Jesus London and Byron are seriously perfect for each other, they both have no filters on their mouths, "he shook his head and the blue in his eyes darkened immediately. It was mesmerizing. "No, but next time, choose a guy who can make you come because you were awfully quiet." Byron is the type of boy who doesn't have a problem saying what he wants, "no, not at all. As soon as we're back home, I'll get rid of my shirt, and I want your little hands on my back." I mean he's all alpha at ...more

I really liked both London and Bryon, but I don't understand why there was so much obsession in this book with London's weight. It went beyond just female body consciousness to boys in the book fat shaming London (even thought it was clear from the descriptions that she was just chunky or pear-shaped but not fat).

I wonder if the author being French but writing an American story has something to do with this? In my personal experience a girl like London would not have trouble getting dates or be

This book was amazing, the kind of love story you would want to experience once in a lifetime.

She was an interesting character, and i could relate a lot with her insecurities and fears about love, i have a tattoo that says don't let the fear of loosing keep you from loving, and i guess that was what the author was trying to make us understand, that even when life gives you a rough time you have to keep going and never stop believing that out there there is someone who will love you wi

Overall fun read. There were some grammar issues but they weren't enough to deter from the story. A few things did bother me though, one being I noticed that the timeline was not always followed- one day it was a Friday and the next day was a weekday and there classes. The other thing that bothered me was how many times he said "you didn't just say that" - well yes she did and she keeps saying things like that so I figured he would have gotten used to it but he didn't.
