My last single friend just got married, leaving me roommate-less. When Rory shows up at my door, I'm more than a little surprised to find out that a guy has answered my ad. Living with a man wasn't exactly what I had in mind. Especially one as handsome as Rory. He's charmin ...more
I'm really confused right now and not because i'm not sure if I liked this book or not (because i didn't), but because it has so many 4 and 5 stars reviews. I really, really don't get it.
I don't enjoy giving bad reviews but every author experiences this so I'm not going to hold back, but I'll do my best to support my opinion with valid arguments.
I feel that the author was constantly improvising while writing this book. I feel that the story as a whole was a hot mes ...more

Imagine a 90s chick-flick that you may have enjoyed back in the day, but has not aged well with the test of time. Whose heroine's antics you once upon a time might have found amusing but now realize are borderline crazy and obsessive for no apparent reason.
There is absolutely no reason why Kiera should be so fixated on Rory. Like yes, I understand he is supposed to be hot, but according to her, so are both of his friends and they're both way better guys but is she obsessed with them? No ...more
And then, somewhere along the line, it all fell apart. The book felt like a made for TV ...more
Keira's last single friend just got married, leaving her roommate-less. When Rory shows up at her door for an interview, she's more than a little surprised to find out that a guy has answered her ad. A super sexy guy.
When I read this blurb I thought that would be a nice book, but it let me down in so many ways that I can´t count.
First of all, Rory is a jerkface, he´s super sweet on the interview and got me fooled together with Keira. Though, I co ...more
be a vast understatement.
The writing was not bad, the premise overdone, but
not bad. The heroine was so immature and silly that
I found absolutely nothing to like about her. Kiera's
acceptance over Rory's hook-ups were just unbelievable.
She was awkward and silly and so unlikeable that I
didn't care that Rory was sleeping with other girls,
in the next room!!! She didn't care so why should I?
Rory, he could have been yummy. He was gorgeous, funny,
Yikes. This was an ebook that's been on my kindle for a few years and I'm trying to read the older ones to clear it out a bit. I'm not sure if I would have liked this in 2017, but in 2020 I most definitely did not.
The author's note indicates that she wrote this as a rom-com that was inspired by New Girl and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, a show that I absolutely love and a movie I really ...more

Keira is in search of finding a new roommate but the only
appealing candidate is a guy A HOT SEXY GUY, which is the last thing she wants but she doesn't have any other choice because the other applicants aren't a good fit for her. So she ends up choosing Rory the hot, sexy guy. Extremely interesting things will happen to them as roommates...!!
To begin with, i have to say that i have pretty mixed feel...more
Rory is the type of man you love to hate. I think Kiera was too easy on Rory. He is a manhole, he even brought home a skank to sleep with right under Kieras nose after sleeping with her. He was very disrespectful bring home bar whores and he knows she can hear them and had them stay until morning to rub her face in it more. I wish Kiera had ended up with Conner. I did not like Rory at all! She was too much of a push over for me to give this book a higher rating.
There was one girl who thought I was too sloppy to live with.
Rory leaned forward on the counter “I don’t mind if you’re a little dirty”.
Keira is looking for a new roommate and has setup interviews for the morning after her previous roommates wedding. She is taken by surprise when Rory shows up and turns out to be a hot 6ft tall single man. With the mind ...more
Title Change Previously The Roomate
Ok so here's the deal.... The cover is absolutely hot but that's pretty much what interested me in this book. I had a super hard time getting into the book and couldn't relate at all. I read to escape everyday life and it usually relaxes me however this read I found myself confused at times and then annoyed and then finally irritated. I wanted to put it down and walk away but because I'm so committed to finishing things I just ...more
However, the best person for the room is not whom Keira could possibly live with is the last person she wants to say yes to. Ro ...more
The heroine is annoying AF. It just seems to me that Keira and the supporting characters their personalities were based on a bad nineties rom-com that would have gone straight to DVD, but it went straight to TRASH. Keira is so freaking annoying.
She doesn't stand up for herself at all and lets a complete jackass grope her during strip poker. And OF COURSE, there were 'bimbos' at ...more
