3.54  ·  Rating details ·  448 ratings  ·  157 reviews
The day a judge gave me the choice between going to prison or going to college was the day I vowed to stop stealing. Never again would I see something beautiful and beyond my means and take it, just because I wanted it. Just because I could.

When I moved in with Jerry, it was with good intentions. I needed a place to live while I got my degree, and he needed a roommate.

Julianna Keyes delivers yet another hit college romance. The story starts out told in the hero’s pov as he is attending college through a program that offers felons a second chance. He had all the best intentions moving in with Jerry, well that was until he met Jerry’s girlfriend, Aster .

“This is my girlfriend, Aster.” I look at Aster and I’m done. So if you think about it, Jerry kind of started it.”

➦I'm a fan of Julianna Keyes ever since I've plowed through Undecided (Burnham College, #1) by Julianna Keyes and loved it to bits. And she's such a sweet lady too! Anywhooooo. This book was very enjoyable but I didn't get the feels for some reason (it happens!) and there wasn't as much humor in this one as in some other books of hers that I've read.

Disappointing :(

Having read the blurb, I thought I was going to read a book about a sweet bad boy who steals the girl he is obsessed with, using his charm or something like that, no matter that she belongs to someone else. Nope, that is not what I got :(

The forbidden

As every “forbidden” story has its own weird attraction, I was intrigued by it & plus the gorgeous cover and I was sold!

I had high hopes for My Roommate’s Girl in spite of the premise, because I adored Julianna Keyes’ Undecided. She wrote amazing chemistry, characters and plot in Undecided and even though I had a few issues with Undeclared I still enjoyed it. My Roommate’s Girl was something else entirely for me. I was expecting to be upset with Aiden’s actions in the beginning, because hey, there’s nothing good about plotting to steal another guy’s girl, but I thought I’d get a big character turn around, and he’ ...more

Wrong choice of title and cover, if you ask me.
It made me go into this book with pretty low expectations. Made me expect a light-hearted, rather shallow story about a bad boy going after the good girl, maybe even a little love triangle thrown into the mix. Some steam, a lot of fun and forgettable characters.
What I certainly did not expect was all the emotions, ranging all the way from hate to love, from compassion to anger, from aggravation to amusement.

I've been considering this book all day. A whole day! Percolating on a review for that long is not in my character. I'm more "decide and question later"

Was this a 3 star or a 4 star? It was one of the more raw, gritty, unpleasant NA books I've read. The only one that comes close to this Summer Skin or I should say this comes close to that?

Reading this book felt oddly personal. In a lot of ways, in a lot of characters, in a lot of mistakes and in a lot of hopes too. And I actually think this is

So I will admit. When I read the title I asked myself, is this an erotic novella? Because for me those are the only instances where a trope like this works.

Well somehow, Julianna Keyes, MADE wanting your roommate's girl work. She made me fall for the guy who was pretty crappy at first. It wasn't forced either. It just worked. Really really well. The story that's weaved really helps you fall for this characters without making you sympathize really. You get mad at them as you should, but then

I loved Julianna Keye’s previous New Adult books, my favorites being Undecided/Undeclared (those books are amazing so if you haven’t read them get to it!). When I saw the summary for My Roommate’s Girl I was instantly intrigued.

The whole premise makes me cringe a bit if I’m being honest because OMG how am I going to like a guy who is trying to sabotage a relationship simply because he wants her… but I can’t lie. I actually really found myself liking Aidan and sympathizing for him at certain poi

I was about to write one of my long-arsed reviews and go all yadda yadda yadda. But I've had a look at my review for Undecided and realised I would have probably written something very similar to it.

There are only three NA authors who are on my auto-buy list:
- Kristen Callihan who is on the more fluffy side
- Sara Ney of whom I have admittedly only read the How to Date a Douchebag series
- and Julianna Keyes

Apart from those three, I give this sub-genre almost as big a wide berth as I giv

I have absolutely loved every Julianna Keyes novel as she has an incredible ability to combine humor, heat, and heart in her novels. They are so darn funny that sometimes I have to catch my breath laughing so hard as her heroes and heroines are so real and honest but sarcastic AF when they need to be. Aidan and Aster were really perfect together. They weren't perfect people but together made each other better. I really loved this book!

4.5 stars! What a refreshing New Adult romance! I loved the storyline and the conflict it presented. Before you worry, this had no cheating! I know some of you can't tolerate it, so no need to stress. Aidan didn't allow for that...but he certainly wasn't an angel by any stretch of the imagination and that's what I loved about him.

The story started out totally from the male point of view of Aidan. He was rough around the edges and had a tough past, but instead of continuing down the wrong path he

The title of Julianna Keyes’s new adult romance My Roommate’s Girl gives a pretty good hint as to the subject matter, and the synopsis fills in some of the details. But what’s delivered is so much more than what’s expected and this is one of those stories you’ll be hard pressed to put down once you start.

I wanted to love this book, I really did, especially after drooling over that hot man on the cover.

However, I was barely able to tolerate Aiden at the beginning of this book. He was conniving and didn't not care about the consequences of his actions. That pissed me off! And he was keeping secrets from a lot of people, including Aster (his roommate's girlfriend). Nothing unusual there, right?

But then, I was thrown when I found out someone else was keeping a secret and I got excited about the fut

Aiden Shaw was stuck between a rock and a hard place, with only two options - go to Prison or accept a scholarship and head to college under a second chances program. Aiden chose the College Route of course. This landed him with Jerry as a roommate and meeting Aster. Aster is the perfect girl-next-door, or so Aiden believes. He wants her and hasn't felt this way about anyone before; the thing is she is taken and is Jerry's girlfriend. Aiden invites Jerry to a bachelor party and sets Jerry up wit ...more

Thank you!

I almost feel guilty for liking this book this much. Don’t get me wrong. This is my third Julianna Keyes’ book, so I should’ve expected it, but I still feel guilty that Aidan hooked me the way he did.

Aidan is a bad boy—and it has little to do with the fact that he used to steal cars, and a lot to do with the fact the he does horrible things in order to steal his roommate’s girlfriend. Worse yet, Jerry, the roommate, is such a nice guy that you

This turned out to be an awesome read. I definitely wasn't expecting this book to go in the direction it did. But I'm so glad it did because I couldn't put it down.
This story truly shows that people can change if they are given the opportunity. This book touched on so many real life issues and still had a great ending.
I'm definitely adding this author to my list of favs. I loved her writing style and love reading new adult stories.

Julianna Keyes’ books are what I want all NA romances to be like. They are swoony, entertaining and tend to be low on the drama. All that being said, I was quite nervous to read My Roommate’s Girl because I mean, it’s about a hero who has no shame and wants to steal his roommate’s girlfriend! Still though, I was willing to give it a shot, and lo and behold, I loved it! I think by now I should just learn to trust Keyes, because she can take even the most unpleasant scenario, and make me fall for

Whenever I’m in the mood for a quick read filled with romance, I turn to New Adult. With so many New Adult books out there it can be hard to find ones that stand out so I tend to be a little pickier with what works and doesn’t work for me in this category.

I had fun reading My Roommate’s Girl!

Don’t worry, there’s no cheating involved! This book is written in dual POVs but we only get to the heroine’s POV later in the novel, it was a great idea, well plotted. This author always delivers such hot sex scenes, I wish there were more!

Unfortunately, the characters were quite forgettable, I could sympathize but couldn’t relate to them much. I liked the character development and plot twists but had some trouble in terms of pacing. I really loved the end

Review by Trinette Dungee

In hindsight, the story ends the moment it begins. I park in front of the apartment building, my new roommate, Jerry, comes out to help me bring in my meager belongings, and everything is fine . Then he says, “This is my girlfriend, Aster.” I look at Aster and I’m done. So if you think about it, Jerry kind of started it.

That statement right there made me like Aiden Shaw immediately. This guy had a wit about him that I couldn’t ignore. However, the more I read the more I

Initially I thought Aidan was off, and a little sociopathic in his thought process. He meets his roommates girlfriend, and immediately has his sights set on her. I liked that, the immediacy of the chase, the first twenty chapters or so, solely in his point of view. The problem was we had NO CLUE what was going on in the heroine's head: does she like him, does she not??

He has no loyalty to Jerry, so honestly, I didn't care that he made a play for Aster and manipulated his surroundings because he

I was so excited to see a new, standalone new adult romance from Julianna Keyes on NetGalley. It's no big secret that I've loved her Burnham College series — and her adult offerings, for that matter — but I was still looking forward to seeing what she would do with new characters. I'll admit, I was a little leery going in because of the subject matter. A guy trying to steal his roommate's girlfriend? Would there be cheating? Could I find a guy

My Roommate's Girl wasn't what I anticipated at all. There were definitely some surprises and twists and turns that I wasn't expecting. However... it lacked an element of sweetness and really... angst that I was hoping for.

Aidan is a bad boy. So bad in fact that he finds himself enrolled in college due to a judges ruling. It was college or jail. However, try as hard as he might, he finds he hasn't quite left the bad boy in the pa
