I enjoy romantic comedies, whether movies or books, but this one was a waste of time as my Amazon First Reads pick of September. Could the characters be any more generic or shallow? I think not. Could the heroine and hero be any more clueless? Nope. Should I admit that I made a huge mistake in my September First Read? Most definitely.

If you are a young 20-something female, this book could appeal to you. It's a cutesy romance with cutesy characters, even a cutesy dog. The heroine, Madison, comes

This book is fine if you just want a quick romance that won't require any deep thinking. The pacing and character development felt off to me, and there were several times when I just couldn't suspend my belief enough to go on (but I have a hard time not finishing a book, so I just complained to my husband/friends and pushed on). Neither Madison nor Tyler have any real personality characteristics, so if you like the kind of story where you can plug yourself in, this

I don't know why, I have been reading such romantic comedy books one after another for the last few days. Am I getting addicted🙄?! Anyway here come to the real topic, Yesterday i finished reading this one. It was a quick and easy read for me. Is it a little cheesy? A little. Predicable? Yes. It won’t be one that I consider life altering or super deep, but a cute story. The main characters seemed a little flat t

This charming, light-as-a-feather romance was just what I needed to get me out of my reading rut! None of the characters or situations were even slightly realistic. But really, who cares when the romantic leads are so adorable, and they share a love for a rescue dog named Pigeon?

I highly recommend this if you just want something fun and lovely to lift your spirits.
I can always count on Ms. Wilsons books, full of likable characters, fun plots and swoony romance! I was so excited when I won an advanced copy and received it right before a little vacation my family was going on. It was the perfect read for a long drive and relaxing by the pool.

This is a riches-to-rags type story as our heroine Madison, is cut-off from her very wealthy family when she decides to live her own life by becoming an elementary school teacher! Something that is just not allowed for

Well, this read was not what I was expecting. Having read the blurb, I thought I might get a dose of Sophie Kinsella-like writing. However, it was too sickly, too sweet and the protagonist? Well, she annoyed the hell out of me.

This book is predictable but I think I gave this four stars for the fact that I was enjoying it. First off, I was not really emotionally invested with the characters and the sexual tension wasn’t really intensifying. This may have to do with Tyler's body language which I find to be kinda featureless so it's very hard to get any indication of his interest in the early chapters. Or maybe for the lack of smut.

As much as I love Madison, I think Tyler was a bit bland. Not sure if it's because I'm so

I enjoyed this story but I thought it was lacking romance. They're wasn't really a lot of scenes with the main characters together or actually getting to know one another so in the end I was left wanting more.

This was an enjoyable read about the slow burning romance between Tyler and Madison. I absolutely loved Madison and how strong she was throughout the book and her and Tyler just clicked and made the most adorable friends to lovers. But don't get me started on how disgusted I felt about Madison's family...ugh.

How Adorable!!

How adorable!! This book was so much fun to read. I didn't want to put it down. I probably read through it too quickly which is generally the case when I love a book. I just can't help myself. Great characters, the cutest dog, growing friendship and attraction. Lightning kissing scenes. So good! I loved it!

The premise of Roommaid was here; however, it truly just fell flat being filled with privileged main characters, nonsense adult actions, and adding of pets that do not enhance the story.

The clever play on words in the title alone – Roommaid is a funny take on “roommate” -- - made me want to love this romcom as a breakout fave of 2020. I clung to hope that it might give off similar vibes of brilliance as The Hating Game. That book is the gold star standard of originality, freshness, hilarity, bickering, and heartwarming romance. However, for all the sporadic smartness and fresh, entertaining banter which

Sometimes an idea can come to you, it has all these extras that fill your mind, and before you realize it, you have concepts, characters, and a plot.

At least, in my mind, I can see that happening.
The trick is making sure all of these elements fit like a puzzle and the end result is as great as the ideas you first came up with.

Room-maid had a lot of situations that would seem to fall right into place and be perfect for a sitcom/romance...exce
I’ve never read this author before, but this sounded cute.

This started well, I liked the writing style. And man, it’s so nice to read about a female character that’s light and happy and bubbly. Sometimes books get so bogged down in a characters endless emotional drama.

In saying that, this chick is ridiculous. To not even know how to work a dishwasher. Tragic. It didn’t endear me to her.

This was a fluffy sort of read, but I didn’t feel their connection. Not really for me. Maybe I would have liked
Hmmm...Sarah Woods a new author to this reader. What did I think? This was a fast read and didn't enthuse me at all. It was the typical romantic read between two people. Could have been more for this reader. ...more

Madison Huntington has had enough of her parents running her life--deciding what she studies, the job she'll have and more. She wants to be an elementary school teacher and she's going to show them she can do it on her own. She becomes the roommaid (roommate + maid) of Tyler Roth--clean up the main part of the apartment and help take care of his dog, Pigeon when he's away. Easy, peasy right? Well not if you're from a super wealthy family and you've never cleaned or cooked anything in your life.

I was not really a fan of this book. It came highly recommended to me and there were *some* cute moments, but it ended up being a no for me.

First, Tyler, the love interest for our main character, Madison, was kinda dull. There was nothing about him or his personality that drew me in. He was cute (aren't they always), but that was it. He was just sooooo nice and there didn't seem to be anything else to him. I needed some spice, something to show me that he was, indeed, a flawed man that was also

Madison comes from a wealthy family, all she has to do is marry the bachelor her parents have set her up with and not work. Understandably Madison refuses and loses access to her trust fund and starts sleeping on her friend's sofa as her Teacher wage doesn't afford her her own place. When her Aunt introduces her to the handsome Tyler who needs a room mate in his gorgeous apartment to help him clean and look after his anxious dog when he's away, Madison can't believe her luck.

I really needed that. I have barely read anything this month. I have been in a swoony anime haze and clearly I needed an equally swoony book to bring me back.

All boxes checked on that front. Adorableness abounds in this book.

Highly recommended.

When I first read the synopsis for this one I was reminded of Sophie Kinsella. You have Madison who’s a teacher that has been cut off from her family’s money after not falling in line and doing exactly what they want her do, from who she dates to what her career is. In her desperation she takes a “job” as a roommaid, think a roommate who also does some housekeeping in exchange for free rent. Her roommate is Tyler, a super smart and successful guy who looks like a supermodel because of cours

If you can get past the ridiculous premise and the fact the Madison had almost no adult life skills, this is an okay rom-com. There's a lot of misunderstandings and a lack of communication between Madison and Tyler, which went on a little too long.

Madison grew up rich and privileged, but she went to college and found a teaching job, so I found it hard to believe she had almost no idea how to do anything. Some of the scenarios (like using Dawn dish soap in the dishwasher) were meant to b

Madison grew up extremely wealthy, but when she went against the family expectations and became a second grade teacher she was cut off from the family money. Not wanting to live in apartments where people were murdered or overridden with bugs, she was presented an opportunity to move in with Tyler. He traveled quite a bit for his job and was looking for som
I have loved all of Wilson's books lately. They have just hit the spot for me. If you haven't read Starstruck run and get it! This was a fun one:} I enjoy a character that learns and grows through a story and both of these characters learned about themselves and tried to become better people. I LOVE boundaries. When an author includes things like boundaries and loving yourself I am all in. I took away a star because I love when there is chemistry and tension throughout the book. This one didn't ...more

Room-maid is a light, sweet and fun story. The plot provides low angst and was enjoyable for the most part, however there were parts of the story and characters I struggled to connect with. Madison grew up wealthy but didn't really feel she fit into that world. She dreamed of becoming a teacher and making it on her own and when she makes that dream a reality she is cut off by her family. She ends up in a roommate/maid situation with Tyler. I wasn’t sure what to think about Tyler at firs

A very good twisty, somewhat retelling story of Cinderella or Snow White. The book was very good. Madison wants to live her life, but that means getting away from her cruel family. She decides to move in and become roommates with Tyler, a handsome jock at his place with a cute dog named Pigeon. She looks after Tyler’s dog and becomes a roommaid who actually doesn’t know how to clean. As the story the progresses, Madison and Tyler build a relationship, but are hiding a secret.

Enjoyable! I enjoyed the MCs. The only thing that really threatened the 4 star rating for me was the fact I didn’t like the family in the slightest and they were very after-thoughty and cartoony sometimes.

“Speaking of scents, we’ve been discussing insects this week and I learned a certain type of orb-weaver spider puts out a scent that smells just like a female moth in heat in order to attract and trap male moths. It made me wonder what my lure scent would be. You know, the thing that would make me fly blindly to my death. I think it would probably be warm apple cider and cinnamon sugar doughnuts.” 2 likes
