I've spent seven nights cooped up in this five star hotel, sleeping on 1000 thread count sheets and working sixteen hours a day. At least room service is covered under my expense account. But all work and no play leaves a girl dateless for her brother's wedding.

Prospects aren't totally bleak, though. Four meals a day, I get to drool over this sexy room service guy: he's go

Everyone needs a little Room Service in their lives. It was a laugh out loud debut that delivered the goods-all of them. Told from the heroine's pov, we get to see the world from Alex's witty and sometimes wacky perspective and she left me giggling and guffawing all throughout her story. Add in the sexy server, Ben, and they not only steamed up the hotel sheets but my Kindle too. I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with these two and can't wait from more from Ms. Dunne.

OMG! LOOOOOVED this book! Which hotel can I find my own Ben at?!

First off, I'm a newbie to Poppy Dunne. So when I read the synopsis for Room Service, I knew I had to read it! And now?...I'm a definite fan! Room Service is full of all the things I love: humor, witty banter, sexual tension, with bits of drama throughout. And HELLO!..."Ben HOT" had me at the first knock on the hotel room door!

The character dynamic was so much fun, and incredibly enjoyable! The progression of Alex and Ben's relation

Well, if whatever else Poppy Dunne decides to write is anything like Room Service, you can count me in!

Alex is in town on both business and pleasure. The business? Trying her best to save her job. The pleasure? Going to her brother's wedding, though if you count on her seeing the rest of her family in the process, it's really not much of a "pleasure" after all. Add the fact that her ex-boyfriend will be attending the wedding (since he's related to the bride) and things get a bit more complicated

Being inside of Alex's mind was a ridiculous ride of awesomeness. She was awkward, quirky, clever, witty, hysterical, and incredibly easy to like. Although her narrative ran rampant with self-mockery, she held a quiet sort of confidence. She not only accepted her flaws, she owned them. I couldn't help but admire her character.

Alex came from "old" money and grew up with its oppressive weight and expectations. After a failed relationship, she took off to the other side of the country, determined t

I'm such a sucker for off the cuff romances and Room Service fits the bill. I couldn't put it down. The story is filled with wit, laughs, struggles and a feel-good happy ending.

For Alexandrina (Alex) Harrington the struggle is real. Her brother's wedding is in a few days and she's minus a plus one. Alex is feeling the pressure from her judge-y mother and her ex who will also be attending the wedding. If that isn't enough she also has to find a kick-ass band to revitalize the House of Jazz where

This book is a lot of fun. The internal dialog is laugh out loud funny. I adore Alex. She is funny, a little irreverent and willing to do the things she thinks in her head, which makes her an unpredictable heroine.

Ben was amazing. Supportive, fun and willing to do what she needed from him to support her...and this was a lot of fun. I love that he was reliable, that he was on her side, and that he was willing to just be there for Alex because

Holler!!!

To start with, I might use Poppy Dunne's line to describe the book I just finished reading. "I think my sanity might snap considering it." Not in a bad way but in a good way!

I am a sucker for romantic comedy books but Room Service by Poppy Dunne is something I never expected. The book/story tested my sanity all throughout my journey with Ben and Alex. My God. These two are like two opposite poles the attraction was just too strong. And please don't let me starte

It was ok, but I didn’t find it very funny :-(


The plot itself had a potential, but I didn’t feel any chemistry/connection/lust/love /etc. between the MCs.
Male POV was missing. The heroine was sarcastic and “funny”, but I saw her more as an unsure vulnerable woman. The hero was a good guy.

Safety note: (view spoiler)

The epilogue was a bit crazy?..

It took me longer than I'd like to admit to read this (only due to time constraints, though, not desire), but man am I so glad I finally got a chance. This book made me laugh, like seriously laugh out loud, and it made me hot and bothered all at the same time. Room Service is such a great read. If you haven't one-clicked this one yet, do it now. You won't regret it. I promise.

First book by Poppy Dunne and it definitely won't be the last. Think if it as having the multiple laugh out loud moments of Rachel Van Dyken but also with some seriously hot, descriptive sex scenes (This was the first funny romance I'd read that ALSO had the steamy sex; usually it's one or the other so that was a pleasant surprise.) I'd never heard of her until I got an email from Elle Kennedy (not to me personally but to her subscribers) recommended get this book. MAN I laughed out loud SO many ...more

Room Service started off with a bang, and I really enjoyed the first couple of chapters, however beyond that point there were parts of the story which failed to hold my interest. To me it felt like a lot of the story was bogged down with unneeded description - from the hotels, to Central Park to what the snow lined path looked like when Alex went on the horse ride in Central Park.

Ben…where do I start with “Ben HOT” he was an amazing character and the highlight of the book for me. He’s the kind

Poppy Dunne's Room Service follows the story of a Alex, the somewhat outcast of her family, as she navigates the wedding of her much beloved brother. In order to get through seeing her ex again, she enlists the help of the waiter who brings her dinner to her room. Once they come to an agreement, hi-jinks and fun ensue.

The heroine Alex is such an off-beat character. She is quirky and accepting of others and has a voracious appetite, literally. She walks the line of b

A kategóriájában szuper. Persze nem kell csavaros történetre számítani, sőt minimum agymunkával megsaccolhatók a történések, de kit izgat, amikor a szereplők három dimenziósak, az érzelmek megélhetők, és az általam kedvelt szarkasztikus humorral van tele a könyv.
Ahogy a fülszöveg is írja, hősnőnknek egyedül kellene megjelennie az öccse esküvőjén, ami anya szerint nagy blamázs, különösen, hogy az expasija is ott lesz. Erre hirtelen felindulásból felkéri kísérőnek a srácot, aki a kaját szolgállja

Money Isn't Everything

What do you do when you have to attend your brothers wedding and you know your ex boyfriend will be there?
Hire someone to be your new boyfriend and go with you!
It just isn't as easy as it sounds though, because with every relationship, honesty is the key.

This is a fun rom com with strong leads that are bound to make you laugh and swoon. I also loved the authors note. Room Service will never be the same for me.

Room Service is Poppy Dunne's debut into the writing world and I have to say she has gained another fan, I will be looking for more of her work in the future. Room Service is a quick, witty, sweet, sexy read. I enjoyed the banter between the characters and the lighthearted storyline.

I really enjoyed Alex's character. The story is told from her point of view along with plenty of her crazy internal dialog that will have you laughing out loud in spots. She grew up in a family full of wealth and pr

This is Poppy Dunne’s debut novel and I thought it was well written. I have to be honest and say that for the most part the story is one that we have read before, with just a few new things sprinkled into it. However, that didn’t keep me from enjoying it.

Alex is very dedicated to her work and has been called a work-a-holic from her past relationships. She’s good at what she does but in her line of business, she must work harder than ever to keep up with the new technology that dampers her succes

This book was an absolute delight to read from start to end. The smile never left my face and I had the warm and fuzzies throughout.

We first meet the ridiculously funny Alexandrina in her hotel room where she's ordered a mountain of food from room service while simultaneously trying to save the company she works for. When she answers a call from her mother and learns that her ex will be attending her brothers wedding over the weekend, she advises that she'll be atten

In New York for her brother's wedding, Alex finds herself in need of a date. She's living in a hotel, relying on room service for meals, as she also works to help secure an up-and-coming rock band to perform at the club where she works in California. Enter Ben, the gorgeous room service waiter. For $300, Alex purchases his services for the wedding festivities. And if a little hanky panky ensures, let's consider it a bonus, shall we?

I swear that I can't remember how long it's been since I read a book that made me laugh as much as this book did.

I absolutely loved Alex and how quick-witted and easy-going she was. Admittedly, sometimes Alex's inner monologue was a bit over the top, but that was a huge part of her charm.

Ben was sweet and as quick-witted as Alex but he definitely turned up the sexiness level of their interactions.

Room Service was a fun, sexy and fast paced book that had me laughing, snorting and overall just really enjoying the entire book. I could totally connect with Alex, I think all of us have issues with our family in one way, shape or form and her thoughts about them were hilarious at times but also sort of sad that they made her feel that way. Ben may have started off as her hired date but watching them morph into

Probably, I would rate this a solid 3.5 stars if I had the ability.

All in all, it's a super cute romance about a chance meeting turning into a wedding date, which turned into a HEA. A bunch of other stuff happened in between all of that to make for a bit more complicated story.

Where it fell flat for me was the narration. I love first person, but being inside Alex's head was a tad scary. She was so scattered that she was at times hard to follow. I know the author was intending for her thoughts

Room Service is the debut by Poppy Dunne and honestly it was a real treat to read. I love a good romantic comedy and Room Service was laugh out loud funny and witty. The story focuses on Alex who comes from a wealthy family who don’t really understand her decisions. She is coming up on her 30th birthday and was dumped by her ex a year ago. Alex is a workaholic but her job is in jeopardy if she can’t get a big band to perform at the jazz club.
