Roommate Wanted: Looking for someone to share my crappy apartment. Bonus points if you are a hot guy with rocking abs.

The last part was a joke. Biggest mistake of my life.

When I opened my door to my new roommate, I never expected him to be exactly what I had asked for.

Hot? Very.

Tall? Check.

Gorgeous eyes? Blue, and check.

Rocking abs? Check.

This is my first read by this author. To be honest, I’m pretty much middle of the road with this book. I didn’t dislike it but it didn’t wow me and there were too many things that just felt off. It has a good premise, but the characters were inconsistent in their behavior towards each other. Kevin seemed all in from practically the time they meet but when Audrey gets on board with it just a few days later he’s all whoa whoa whoa too fast .. so that was weird for me as a reader. We’re reading an ...more

This is my first time reading this author and I really enjoyed reading this book. The plot is interesting and it’s well written. I liked the authors writing style and thought she created some nice characters. It’s a nice pleasant read only taking a couple of hours to read cover to cover so not too long. If you are looking for a romance book to spend a couple of hours with then this could easily be the book for you!

So I was given the ARC copy of this book by the author and I am going to write an honest review.

When I first started reading this book, I had low expectations. But as I kept reading, it got me hooked and realised it's actually my cup of tea. The relationship between Audrey and Kevin is well-developed. What caught my eyes is Zane. His appearance always makes me laugh and smile. Zane is such an amazing friend anyone could ever have,which low-key makes him my favourite character. The friendship

This one won't be any trouble for you to read!!
Zane and Audrey are friends and live together, they are both tight on money and decide to bring in a third roommate, Zane's old friend, Kevin. Audrey thinks Kevin is a jerk but can't dwell on it as she has to get ready for her new job. Imagine her surprises when her new boss turns out to be her new roommate. Will she ever look at him as anything other than a jerk, especially after so many failed relationships in her past? Will Kevin be able to break

This story started off great and was moving along pretty good until the ending. Audrey and Kevin both are coming off breakup, Audrey has had more than her fair share. When they first meet it’s not the best circumstances. Kevin is ride Audrey is not feeling him. It doesn’t help when she finds out he is her new boss.they start a relationship. Audrey is insecure and keeps second guessing everything. The big fight and secret reveal were a bit of a let down. Loved Kevin and best friend Zane.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest feedback and review.

The first thing I wanted to address was that the description of the book doesn't seem to exactly match what happened. The description started out with: “Roommate Wanted: Looking for someone to share my crappy apartment. Bonus points if you are a hot guy with rocking abs.", but in the book the ad is never mentioned and the new roommate, Kevin, is actually her current roommate, Zane's, childhood friend that he's kept in

There are so many things right with this book that I have trouble giving it 3 stars, but a few things held me back from making the jump to 4 stars (there was a moment there where I thought it was leaning towards 5 stars, but the ending ruined any chance of that happening). Let me start by explaining the premise - Audrey is a woman in her twenties who has struggled with a few things in the past few years. She keeps falling for her boyfriends, only to find out that she was way more invested in the ...more

This was my first book I've read by Chloe Gray and I was pleasantly surprised by how hooked I was on the book in the beginning. I'm not a fan of most Contemporary Romance novels, but I enjoyed this one. I thoroughly enjoyed Zane, the gay best friend. He was very well written and was a breath of fresh air. I know some critique the emotional issues the main character struggles with, but it's refreshing to have a character that isn't perfect. I do agree, however, that her emotional instability gets ...more

I have always said I'm not a fan of insta-love, BUT I keep contradicting myself. THEY ARE SO ADDICTING!!! Now, Audrey and Kevin weren't exactly insta-love, but it sure was insta-LUST! These two had the best sparks from day one!

I really loved Audrey's character. She's trying to be an adult, get a good job, pay off loans, all of the things none of us want to do. I also loved how she wasn't perfect. Audrey had a pretty major flaw in this book and it wasn't a pretty one. But, that helped her be so

This is my first book by newish author Chloe Grey and I really enjoyed the story. I’m a big fan of insta-love stories and when you add in the boss/secretary aspect it heats up the story ten-fold. Zane and Audrey are best friends and looking for a new roommate to help with the oh so expensive rent in NYC when Kevin, a childhood friend of Zane’s gets in touch looking for a place to live.

Audrey isn’t too sure about this guy especially when Zane doesn’t too much about him since they haven’t remained

I love a good roommate book, especially with so much suspense from the unknown of Kevin’s issues. I had this awesome author contact me and I couldn’t wait to read this book!

Audrey seemed so much like me it felt weird at times to read. So many insecurities she had I knew I had from before getting married. The need to be loved after being hurt so many times is overwhelming. Plus the amount of debt you have looming over your head doesn’t help the self esteem when you have to reuse clothes over and

This was a really great story and I truly enjoyed the journey that the author took me on. I liked the fact that the characters have flaws, they're not perfect and they make stupid choices sometimes. Audrey is living with her best friend, Zane, who happens to be gay. They are struggling to pay the bills so they have an old middle school friend of Zane's, a guy named Kevin move in with them to help with the bills. Then Kevin finds out his new secretary is Audrey and things kind of heat up between ...more

This is a brilliant story. The writing is not great, always using "my boyfriend" "my boss" etc. instead of Kevin's name gets to be a bit too much. What really makes this great, and keeps you turning the pages, is trying to figure out what Kevin is hiding. Kevin rents a room from an old schoolmate, who happens to also live with Kevin's new secretary. Kevin wants her immediately, and is so angry when she opens the door, he's rude to her, then ignores her. Once he finds out that she's single, he's ...more

This book was given to me by the author for an honest review.

In this roommates to lovers story, bestfriends Audrey and Zane take on a third roommate to save money. When an old friend of Zane's, Kevin moves in, he does not make a good impression on Audrey.

Audrey starting a new job the next day finds herself with Kevin as her new boss. Both are equally surprised. The more time they spend together, the stronger the attraction and a relationship begins.

This is a quick read. The relationship between

Very good romance
Very good romance, well written, with good characters but maybe a little simple on the length. I thought there would be more action because of Marcus's character, but eventually even if his presence hides a secret, the consequences are less terrible than I thought.
The story begins with Audrey discovering that her second roommate is none other than her new boss, Kevin, who already as a roommate is unpleasant. She tends to fall in love very quickly, if not too fast, to the point

I started off loving this book in a 5 star way, but then Audrey developed some seriously uncharming mental issues, and it was all I could do to finish it. It is really a shame because this could have been a wonderfully endearing story. I’m not trying to even imply in the slightest that mental health stuff can’t be loveable, as we all have our issues afterall, but it could have been handled much better than this shallow, stereotypical, paranoid, drama queen, yo-yo portrayal. All the other ...more

Refreshing and Truly Wholesome Modern Romance

I am an avid reader of many genres, modern romances being one my favorites. Too often the plots are predictable and the characters boring. This refreshing new novel by this amazingly talented author kept my attention with her great story telling and a really hot sex scenes. WOW.

From an awkward beginning of meeting a rude new roommate, later finding out he's your hot desirable boss to becoming friends and then lovers, it had me going throughout.

I volunteered to read this ARC for an honest review. I enjoyed this story about Audrey and Kevin. Audrey and her roommate/best friend Zane are getting a new roommate. Kevin was Zane's friend when they were 14 but stayi in touch. When she first meets Kevin he's kind of a jerk, he thinks Zane and Audrey are together. So image her surprise when she starts her new job only to find out he's her new boss as well. She's had bad lick with guys in the past so she is scared to start a new relationship ...more

It was enjoyable and entertaining and what stopped it being a 4 star was that even though I had liked Audrey she annoyed the heck out of me at the end and I also felt like she was a little to needy, yes she had bad experiences and that was understandable but at times I did want to slap her. Then we have Kevin, who is the new roommate who is utterly hot and ends up being her boss, you knew that was coming and considering that Audrey had jerks of boyfriend you could see why Kevin keeping secrets ...more

Audrey and her best friend Zane share an apartment to help with the rent, they add a third roommate- Kevin, Zane's friend from middle school. From the description, its obvious that Kevin is a hottie. Even Zane is interested at first. Until he feels the sparks between Audrey and Kevin. If living together isn't complicated enough, Audrey learns that ...more

Bad money management.

Audrey Hemlock writes books and is interviewing fir a new job.

Bond, Kevin Bond is her new roommate. They don’t get off to the best start. But I loved that he read her books and wanted to know if her characters had a boy or a girl.

Oh, and he’s her new boss.

But Kevin is keeping a secret. Why is he living with Audrey and Zane if he’s a wealthy business owner?

I enjoyed their relationship and the fiscal realities.

I enjoyed this story of Audrey and Kevin, it is fairly uncomplicated with just a few twists and turns which was pleasently surprising! Sometimes it is really nice to read a book that is not full of intrigue and dark themes! Audrey and Kevin have a wonderful chemestry, and her best friend Zane is a lovely caracter in the mix! I thought the story well written and I got a good feel for all the caracters and the environment they were in!

Chloe Grey is a first for me and one to be on the lookout for from this talented author. I loved that it is not your usual romance but one filled with comedy and friendship. She shows us how Audrey is nervous of letting her heart out and the thought of rejection again. These are things we all have in common and boy Chloe Grey really hits how with Audrey. These two are hilarious and boy so much sexual foreplay it was fun to see what will happen.

I was lucky enough to get an ARC copy of this, and I really highly HIGHLY recommend it.
Really fantastic imperfect but charismatic characters and a loveable gay best friend that I think EVERYONE needs in their life. I wish Zane was real, seriously.
It starts off as a bit of a slow burn, but with really great chemistry - and from about page 80 increases rapidly to about a 5/5 chilli pepper rating!
The character development is worth it though, and a really satisfying ending.
I would rank this book TOP

This was a very nice romantic read. The story was good and quite realistic. The characters all had flaws which made the story believable and relatable. There are numerous very sensual scenes contained within the story. Over the course of the story the two main male and female characters experienced ł gamut of emotions. Over the course of this story the two main male and female characters evolved and matured.

Love Zane! We all need a friend like that. Love Kevin - so swoon-worthy. I have trouble with the heroine's lack of fortitude. She was a troubled, broken heart - which actually makes this story pretty realistic. I just wish she had more redeeming qualities - the reason Kevin fell for her, or why she deserved Zane's friendship.

I can't wait for the author's next book - I received this copy as an ARC.
