Having never read a R.C. Boldt book before, I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this. All I knew is after reading that blurb I couldn't not read it. The blurb sounded too delightful for me to pass this one and I’m glad I gave it a try since this l totally enjoyed it. 'Clam Jam' was most of all very entertaining. The author balanced perfectly the humor and sexiness, delivering a lovely read that sucked me in from the very beginning. If you are fallowing my reviews, y

I have to confess I am not a fan of full on romantic chick flick books, but when comedy plays a big role in stories with romantic themes, I actually quite enjoy them. Clam Jam sucked me in from the first page. The author weaves a story that’s a masterful balance of laugh-out-loud funny and curl-your-toes-sexy.

The heroine, Maggie tries so hard not to fall for her handsome, 'gay' roommate, but she just can’t help herself. And who can blame her? Ry is completely swoon-worthy. He is strong-willed

CLAM JAM: I tend to normally steer clear of the romantic comedy genre but the synopsis had me so intrigued that I couldn't help but sign up for this one. This will also be my first read by this author.

CLAM JAM DEFINITION: the female equivalent of a cock block. EXAMPLE: You're chatting with a guy you're interested in and your friend comes along and lays claim to him.

Who knew this is an actual term!! And OMG I googled this shit and it’s a real to life true term!! LOL!!

I love when a Romantic Comedy book reads like a Romantic Comedy movie and CLAM JAM definitely did. The plot was refreshing, the characters were enjoyable, and there was plenty of steam, geekiness and cheese to make for a good time had by all.

Maggie was absolutely adorable, but it was Ryland who stole the show. He was the one I adored the most. He was a sympathetic character (not to say Maggie wasn't because she was) and while his subterfuge was pretty idiotic, it made for some pretty hilarious t

It starts as great fun and although I didn't like the act, I can understand the logic behind what he did.

But how long can you continue the act? For that many months?
Oh, no! That is just frustrating.

If you wanted to be somehow close to her while she is out of the dating scene, why don't you come clean when she is ready to start dating? Why do you keep clam jamming her, instead? And it is not for a week or two, it is for months, for God's sake!

I am sorry, I cannot take it any more...

I don't review books very often but this is one of the funniest books I've read in a while. Maggie and Ry's dynamic was amazing and I loved both of them as individuals as well, which is saying something since it's really hard to find books like that these days. I may read more from R.C. Boldt in the future because this was an amazing read.

You know those romantic comedies that are so funny that the humor can sometimes take away from the romance? This is NOT one of them. GAH!!! I could cry out in glee- I loved this book so much! It’s filled with heart, humor, and fun! I literally sat down on my deck next to my pool and read it from beginning to end in one sitting. That my friends, is how much I adored it.

Maggie Finegan just caught her fiancé with another woman. Now she needs a new roommate, and a non-heterosexual man who is no temptation is just what she’s looking for. Good thing good-looking Ryland James tells her he’s gay. He’s the perfect roommate and becomes a trusted friend.

Except he’s not gay. So can he be trusted?

Told via Maggie and Ry’s alternating first person point of view, the premise—with Ry and his buddy, Jack, pretending to be a gay couple in an open relationship—is incre

What a fun journey with Mags & Ry .. i laughed and smiled so much i'm sure my mouth will stay grinning for days ..
What I didn't like about it is how creepy Ry's clam jamming sometimes tend to be .. really at some point i thought he might turn with a knife and say : mwahahaha I'm your stalker slash roommate who will kill you RN
Anyway .. they were cute , the napkin thingi was so romantic I highlighted all their short letters .. just in case i found my Ry one day ;)
Jan 20, 2017 rated it it was ok
From the reviews - I believe I'm in the minority. I was genuinely disappointed. Mostly, GR reviews loved it, and found it humorous, if not slightly long-winded.

My expectations: High. Great romcom novel, funny MCs.

Reality: Average. Not at all did it make me laugh, or chuckle - not once.

I will review this through by page numbers, on iBooks /882, so you can empathise with how I was left reeling.

To be quite honest, I was totally sold on this book just on the synopsis alone. I completely envisioned a romantic comedy that had me laughing and swooning the entire time. I have to say, I was really surprised that I ended up liking this one as much as I did.

Maggie has just been dealt a low blow…she catches her fiancée with another woman. In her bed. Double yikes!! So now to help pay the rent, she is in desperate need of a roommate. After interviewing Ry she decides he’s going to be the perfect

What's it about?
In order to share an apartment with a broken-hearted girl who wants nothing to do with men, Ryland pretends to be gay. Its the perfect solution. Except for the small fact that he is also completely and hopelessly in love with her.

The best bits: This is hilarious. The narrative glides effortlessly across the pages and you feel like you're having a coffee with an old friend. It's thoroughly entertaining and sprinkled with the kind of self-depr

Choo choo trainwreck.

When I started this book it was a strong contender to get 5 stars and a spot on my "favourites" shelf:

Maggie just broke up with her fiance after catching him with another woman. She needs a roommate to be able to afford her rent but she's never been able to live with other women, so she needs a guy. But a straight guy would lead to complications and she's not ready for that just yet. No, she needs a gay guy. Since she can't exactly put an ad out for that, she

When I saw the blurb I knew I had to read this book. I hadn’t read a book from R.C. Boldt before, but now I’m ready for more book by this author.

Maggie and Ry’s story was so fun and cute. Their friendship may have been built on a lie but it was still great. The trouble Ry has to go through to keep his feelings a secret was a bit crazy but very entertaining. This book made me laugh a lot. I really enjoyed this book, though I just wish that things would have come together for them quicker. But des

I really enjoyed this light and fun romance! There were a couple moments that had me laughing out loud. I loved Ry and Maggie, the supporting characters, the steamy scenes and the humor. I can't wait to check out more books by this author.

Well, the idea of the story was interesting, but the book itself was dragged on…
I enjoyed it till approx. 38% and then it was just the same repeated over and over again.
Both MCs were quite likable, but their actions were oft silly.

"So unfair they're gay, right? What a waste of two incredibly hot guys."
Maggie, a guy being gay isn't a waste. If only Ry and Jack really were gay. Then I could read their story, while Maggie sulked in the background.

I saw the synopsis for this book and immediately knew I wanted to read it. I mean, c'mon can you read that and NOT laugh and wonder how it will work out?? From the get-go, this book had me giggling because of Maggie's humor, but also Ry's quick wit and comebacks. freaking funny!! I'm a slow reader by nature since

Very Cute. Very Funny.

Well, if truth be told, I only chose Clam Jam for review because of that title. I thought there was no way in hell a book with a title like that wouldn't be funny. And it was funny. Plus really sweet. A nice, solid romance with a little bit of a speed bump thrown in. I'm going to review a bit vague as to not spoil any of the storylines.

Oh this guy had me hooked from the moment

So sometimes I sign up to read a book based on the title alone. This is one of those instances. Clam Jam. Think cock block but for a woman. I will give you a moment to put it together. Figure it out yet? I hope you have because I am moving on.

I haven’t laughed this hard in a while and to be honest I needed it. I love rom-coms and Clam Jam is one that I was surprised how much I loved. Maybe it is my type of humor
