I sort of had a love/hate relationship with this book. On one hand, it was super cute (and steamy) but on the other hand, it pissed me off to no end.

First the good: I loved the connection between Grayson and Saffie. I loved watching them flirt and seeing them fall for each other. Yes, Grayson bugged me a little when he was using Saffie to tick off fans and management to get traded but ended up really falling for her.

I also loved the Snow White feel to the book, with the 7 guys she lived with.

“The Roommate Arrangement” was a quick story about Saffie finding her way in life and coming to terms with her family (who really are truly awful) and Grayson finding a way to love and trust again. I liked their story and found it to be a fast read, although there were times I wanted to slap Saffie, okay there were lots of times I wanted to slap her. If you are looking for a quick summer read then this is the book for you, it has angst, trust issues, lots of drama, and an insta-love fee

I just wanted to start by saying thank you to Vanessa Waltz for once again considering me to be part of her arc team, and what can I say, this book was great. how do I know that?, well it's simple it played with my emotions, I guess I have to consider getting anger management classes, because I found myself getting too angry at times and wanting to smack a few people around, yes this book will probably get the best of a few of you, shit happens I guess.

Anyways.....

The roommate arrangement is a wonderfully written 4.5 star read by the very talented Vanessa Waltz.
This book is fast paced and flows very well.
Once you start reading it you can't help but get engrossed in the brilliant storyline.
I absolutely loved the way Saffie Pardini was wrote as she has a wonderful heart and just craves love.
I was rooting for her from the beginning.
She is too good for her heartless family and deserves so much better than them.

Saffie Pardini is down on her luck .. losing her job, being evicted BUT losing the LOVE of her family is the icing in the cake. When she finds herself without home she has no choice to ask her brother Henry for a place to stay. He says stay the weekend but when she asks for more he has some rules he puts in place because his house is filled with 7 more Grizzlies and he doesn't want her involved with any of them !!

Well, that ended up being so much more than I was expecting!
I'll be honest here- I assumed this would be a light drama, fun, and games, hot fast and furious with sweet HEA. Which is great too, I am an equal opportunity reader!

Instead, I ended up reading a drama laced story full of frustrating moments and characters that had me talk out loud and shaking my head- and curiously compelling plot twists that made it even more intriguing, all the while watching Saffie struggle to find herself while li

What a really great story with a lot of emotions going through it. Saffie is an amazingly strong girl. Being treated like crap forever by her father and brother, she still pushes forward and tries to keep fixing it. Meeting Grayson was a godsend for her. Her brother wanted her to stay away from him, but because her brother was a major jerk. By the end of the story I can truly say her father and brother were horrible people and I was so thankful she met Grayson and helped him find love. They have ...more

I loved the yoga bet. The relationship between Saffie and Grayson was hilariously sexy. They both had some serious trust issues for good reason. It was great how Grayson pushed Saffie to follow her dream and how he was able to give her the family she craved.

I had to go for a walk when I finished this book because I really wanted to hit someone (like Henry or his dad, or Kris maybe). Anyway, this is a quick read but it is packed with emotions. Once you start to read you will need to know what happened between Grayson & Henry, and why Saffie's dad is such a horrible excuse for a father.

Well all I can say is READ IT, you'll like it.

I was given the opportunity to read an ARC copy of The Roommate Arrangement in exchange for an honest review. I am so glad that I did! I must say that the plot took twists I wasn't expecting and it created a further depth to the storyline that I really enjoyed.

This was such a great read! I instantly loved Saffie!! Getting to know Grayson was sometimes a pleasure, other times I wanted to slap him upside the back of his head, lol! I loved this story line, it is one I don't read about often and it definitely kept my interest. It has a great flow, easy to read, and Vanessa did a phenomenal job with these characters. This just brings home the adage that honesty is the best policy even under the most simple situations.

What do you get when you mix an out of work, estranged sister, her less than decent brother, and a houseful of ripped soccer players? Trouble, that's what. I really enjoyed this read! it has humor, heartache, betrayal, revenge, and of course those steamy scenes! I loved Saffie and Grayson's story! Highly recommend!!

What a great story! Fast paced, with just the right amount of angst and lots of steamy fun! I just wanted to wrap my arms around Saffie and tell her it was going to be OK! Grayson was a bit of a jerk at the beginning but you find out why and you absolutely love him in the end! Can't wait to see what Vanessa gives us next!

This book was Amazing. I received it as an ARC. I was hooked from the 1st line. Saffie was a beautiful character. she was sweet and caring and had a heart of gold. Grayson was a player and a man with a mission. To bad her estranged brother was such a pain in her butt. This book was well-written and it was so interesting with just enough drama to keep you hooked!

Grayson likes to have the perfect tan and Saffie sometimes ruins it, "he peers at the towel covering his groin. "Next time, rub it with suntan lotion." Grayson tends to have a one track mind where Saffie is concerned, "the answer will always be *** when you ask that." I liked this book, I fell in love with Grayson.

Vanessa Waltz does sexy and sweet so well, and that's exactly what The Roommate Arrangement is. Saffie is out of work and homeless so she's finally reached out to her estranged brother for help. He's agreed to let her stay in a vacation home he owns with a bunch of guys on his professional soccer team. He has rules though: no getting involved with the teammates that live there, especially his former best friend, Grayson. So of course Saffie does exactly what she's not supposed to do...and falls ...more

WOW!! What an amazing story. This one was a tear jerker for me. My heart truly broke for Saffie. She wanted one thing in life and that was a family. In a way it ended when her mother died but in another way it ended way before that. You can not read this story with out feeling her hurt.

I can not imagine what it was like for Saffie to be without a job and have to go to her brother who wanted nothing to do with her. Her mother was dead, her father hated her, and her brother hated her as much. To

Love and hate, such a powerful hold that it has on your heart, it tears at your soul and plays tricks on your mind. Saffie has fallen on hard times and she turns to the only family that she has, her brother Henry. She hasn’t spoken to him in years and she hopes that the sweet young boy she grew up with is still there. Her father is a terrible man and made sure that Henry and Saffie grew apart but she never knew why.

The Roommate Arrangement was very good to read like I was supposed. I just enjoyed this bittersweet story but it is not perfect. It should be seven hot bachelors but for me it was Grayson and sometimes Titus – it was too vague especially to the blurb. It could be less drama at the end and more talking between Grayson and Saffie. Furthermore I think sometime Giselle should have her own story and HEA, of course not with Henry – he is not enough good for her.

Their relationship was cute, hot and wit

I received this book in advance for a voluntary honest review. Reading a Vanessa Waltz book is never a hardship, I only wish I didn't have to take breaks to go to work. This book is amazing. It has family drama, comedy, sex appeal, romance and panty melting scenes. Saffie is down in her luck who visits her estranged pro soccer brother at his luxury ranch in California for the summer. Her brother thinks she's only there for three days but she's hoping he'll let her stay the summer since she has n ...more

Three and half rounded down. Very loose play on Snow White. There is no evil queen, but evil family members. There are 7 hottie soccer players (dwarves) but only 1 or two play even a supporting role.

Saffie has lost her job and her apartment and asks to stay with her estranged brother out of desperation. The soccer dwarfs love her even though her brother is strangely cold towards her. Brother Henry and his former bestie Grayson live in the house together but can't stand each other. And we learn t
