I’m known around 425 Madison, and to my friends, as Crazy Sara. While they never use the nickname to my face, I know my reputation precedes me. That’s just fine with me, after all I’ve got everything I ever wanted. I have an apartment in the swankiest building in NYC, a different date every night, and the future is mine for the taking.

Okay so maybe only one thing is m

Wanna hear a funny story? Halfway through reading this one, I remembered another book I read a year ago that was horrible (for me). It just popped into my mind while reading this one. After some attempts to continue this book I decided to check JR on Goodreads and also see if I had read any other book from this author. And guess what. It was the book I read and hated and suddenly everything made sense. The main characters (especially the heroines) had too many things in common. While all four of ...more

The charm of Allie York is that she takes emotions in a direction they'd never thought to go. With humor and heart, she imparts a dash of wisdom as irresistible as the characters she creates. Just Roommates is cleverly kooky and heartachingly honest. Sara and Zack are more than they present themselves to be. The pain is well hidden behind a wall of deep emotion and neverending contradictions.

This book is part of the 425 Madison series and as always I absolutely love to read them. This book is a real romance story that flows beautifully and reading these books really does make you feel the love.

Sara is a beautiful woman who is in need of a room mate. Every one seems to think that she is some crazy lady but her new room mate is seeing a side of her that not many people see as she sure knows how to protect her heart. Her best Kendall is getting her to see her way of thinking as her bro

Ah!! This series... these people! You seriously fall in love each and every time you read one of these books! Some are more than others and each time I read one I think it’s my absolute favorite but then I read the next and then the next! I have never read a series like this that keeps going. I know each time we get a round of their books it could be the last time they do 425 Madison but I love each and every one!!

I literally said to myself, Sara gets a book! I was so excited to read that Sara has her own book. She was such a great friend to Piper and I felt sad for her when Piper moved out, I did t read what the book was about but I knew it would be great. Of course it was! I was reeled in from the beginning and it was like I just read Piper and Eliza story last week. There’s no forgetting them or Sara. This was such a cute story, I laughed quite a bit, I just love Sara. I really enjoyed this book and I ...more

Sara has earned her reputation as being eccentric but that is only part of who she is. When she finds herself in need of a new roommate her best friend’s brother was not her first choice but doing so not only helps out her best friend but herself as well.

Zack is an artist who is finding his current living arrangements with his sister and her family crowded. Rooming with Sara seems like the solution to everyone’s problem and ignoring the chemistry between them and keeping their relationship plato

I have been waiting to read Crazy Sara's book for a long time. She has always intrigued me as she has popped up from time to time throughout this series. I was looking forward to her HEA and, boy, did I love it. I read this in one siting. This is Zack and Sara's story. Zack is Piper and Eliza's younger brother. He ends up being Sara's roommate in an effort to get out of his sister's apartment. The two seem like opposites on the outside, but as they get

This was a pretty quick read and I definitely feel the two main characters had chemistry and were good together. I enjoyed the familiar world of the 425 Madison Avenue building and its cast of characters, as well as Zack’s sisters. It was good that Sara was able to be friends even with the guy she’d been a little bit crazy about in other stories. Overall though there were some times that I feel like it jumped to a new situation or a change in situation without a clear connection. Like when he mo ...more

Wow! Crazy Sara’s story is just that CRAZY!

When Zack finds a way to become Sara’s roommate she doesn’t plan to change her lifestyle at all, a clean freak who likes to date a lot, but never plans to settle down and doesn’t really want a roommate!

Zack is an artist and needs to move out of his sister’s apartment, so he finds a way into Sara’s apartment. He realises quite quickly that he likes Sara and gets jealous when she goes out nightly on dates!

It takes a while but they both soon realise they

I get so excited when I see Allie York’s name on a book because I know that it is going to be a hit. She has quickly become one of my go-to authors for a romantic comedy. This is Allie’s third book in the 425 Madison series. Her first book in the series, Just Swipe Right, was a hilarious depiction of online dating and the second, Just a Little More, dove into the accidental pregnancy topic. Both books earned a solid 4.5 out 5 propeller rating for me. The way she incorporated humor into the books ...more

Another great story from Allie York about the people of 425 Madison Avenue. Was so glad someone did a story with Crazy Sara, who really isn’t crazy. Zack is Eliza and Piper’s little brother who is staying with Piper, Derek and baby Avery. Piper asks Sara to let her brother stay with her as a roommate and he can pay rent. Sara says No several times but gives in and let’s him move in but with rules. Sara is a neat person who doesn’t like mess and dust. Zack follows the rules and is a good roommate ...more

Although this book is part of a series it, like all the others, can be read as a stand alone. This story is about "Crazy" Sara and her BFF Piper's little brother, Zack. Zack is an artist and has recently moved to town and has been living with his oldest sister, Piper, her husband and their infant daughter. Zack soon wears out his welcome and is told to find a new place to live. He really wants to keep staying at 425 Madison so he tricks his sister's BFF, Sara into letting him move in with her.

I loved Sara and Zack's story so much. It was fun, cute, a bit poignant, emotional, sweet and heartfelt. I loved the chemistry that simmered between this pair and the intangible connection that refused to be ignored. I found Zack quite swoon worthy, even if he wasn't my typical book boyfriend type. He could be really sweet, he a good heart and a fierce determination to get a shot with Sara. As for Sara, it was simply wonderful to see her get a HEA. If you have enjoyed other books in this series, ...more

Zack and Sara story is amazing. Zack desperately needs a place to stay. He is crashing with his sister, her baby and his sisters baby daddy! This does really go with his artist vibe, so he seeks out his sisters best friend Sara who lives in the building and is looking for a new roommate. However, Sara doesn’t want a male roommate. She likes order and is a serial dater. She wants the freedom to come and go with no judgement passed. But when Zack breaks her down for a trial stay over, and their ro ...more

If you've read any of this series, most likely you've met crazy Sara, and I have to be honest, I've been waiting on her story because I knew it would be fun. Zack has come to NYC, and he's staying with family, so when there's a shot at moving into Sara's place, he's all for it. Now, Sara is best friends with his sister, and said sister told Sara to NOT sleep with her brother. I don't know about you, once someone tells me to not do something before I ever thought about it, well, there's a good ch ...more

If you are a romance novel reader you know that having a roommate of the opposite sex rarely ends up with being just friends. In Just Roommates I could see where the story was going and was excited to read how Sara and Zack get to be more than roommates.

Sara and Zack were flirty, fun, and sexy. They both had previous relationships but those did not get in the way with the feelings that they were having for each other. I loved how their relationship just happen. Sure, they were roommates and saw

First, I love the 425 Madison series! Second, Crazy Sara is totally one of my favorite characters! I love when a character is so "out there" that the vanilla friends in their life call them crazy. But that's neither here or there.

Zack is new to NYC and new to rooming with Sara. He was living with his sister until she's decided he needs to be a roomie with Sara. And so off we go. Sara is all about the good things in life, except she isn't allowed to sleep with her friend's hot brother. Of course

Another incredible book added to the 425 Madison Series, and honestly, I've been waiting probably the most for Sara's story to be told. Allie York definitely did it justice, in the way we've come to expect from books in the 425 Madison Series!!

This was another solid offering from this series. If you have read any of these books, you have already met Sara. She is affectionately known as "Crazy Sara" in the building and she makes no apologies for her actions. Zack has been living with his sister in the building and needs to find a new place to live. They decide to become roommates while remaining friends. Everyone knows how that ends up. Their journey to happiness is an emotional one but really worth reading.

Thank you for the privilege

Crazy Sara gets her own book!!!

If you're a 425 Madison lover...I know you've been waiting for this one! Crazy Sara is a much beloved character, and Allie York, you had a big job giving Sara all the feels. I've gone from annoyed by Sara, to intrigued by Sara, to now in LOVE with Sara's big personality and even BIGGER heart.

OH! and not to overshadow Zack...he's one swoon-worthy leading man...the perfect match for Miss Sara!

This one will go down as one of my favorite installments in this series.

so this is a part of the thirds series of the 425 Madison Avenue romance collection. Here we see ‘crazy’ Sara get a taste of her own medicine when some talks her into letting them move in. There’s a twist as always in the romance world we get to see the real Sara, the one no body gets to see but she lets this side show when the handsome brother of her best friend moves in and breaks down her walls. This story reads well and felt a little rushed in places but over all it’s a brilliant addition to ...more

Slow conquest
It's a good, loving romance with a character I've been looking forward to in this series: "Crazy Sara".
Ultimately her obsession is not to succumb to her new roommate, whom she didn't want, but whom she accepted (without actually saying yes). Where the story is funny is how the male hero, Zack, subtly manages to manipulate Sara.

425 has yet to disappoint me. From one book to the next in the series I've enjoyed some action, suspense, growth, love and family. Zack and Sara were definitely two of our "craziest" individuals based on the personalities given by their friends and family. However, they were most definitely top of the list of entertaining.

So sit back, relax and get into Zack and "Crazy" Sara lol.

I received an advance copy of the book for my HONEST review.

“I’m starting to get addicted to the 425 Madison series! Just Roommate was pure bliss. Allie’s story left me breathless. Zack and Sara were such amazing characters. She wasn’t the typical female character and I really liked her personality and her easy going style in a unique way. Zack was new to NYC and also Sara’s new roomie and as expected things got intense between them. A forbidden attraction and a promise that will change things forver. Zack was such a sweetie! It was lovely read.”
