But my once sassy friend has turned into a hollow shell of herself, and my life isn’t exactly going according to plan either.

Immediately after finishing Baking with a Rockstar, I knew I wanted Monica and Gabe's story. I love a good friends to lovers romance and these two aren't just friends, they're roommates. This was the sweetest and swooniest story and I adored it!

Monica has been staying with Gabe for a while now. After an injury left her unable to continue her career in dance, she's missing that direction for her life. Dance has always been that one thing she wanted to do and not knowing if she'll

Jasmin Miller wows again with her second standalone book in the Brooksville Novel series One Short Summer. This book drew me in from start to finish and I didnt want it to end. I really enjoyed this sweet and heartwarming tale.

This friends to lovers story just felt real and true. All of the emotions and actions made the story so much fun to read. Gabe and Monica's love story is sweet and spectacular. Everything I love in a good romance novel. I got so many swoony feels from their story and a smi
Five stars for sweet couple Monica and Gabe ❤!!!


"One Short Summer" is the first book I've read by Jasmine Miller and I really love it. For sure, this won't be the last book I'll read by her.

This year I found out that I love reading a good friends-to-lovers book and this one has everything I want in books with this trope.

Monica and Gabe, as I said on beginning, are so sweet and adorable couple. Their story was fun to read and made me smile so much while I was reading.

"You're something, Monica, I give you that. But that's always been the case. I've definitely never met anyone like you before."

My main problem with "Tempted By My Roommate" is that the characters lacked depth and I didn't connect with them at all. The miscommunication plot was also very annoying and pointless. However, not everything was bad and I liked that the heroine didn't give up her job to be with the hero. It was actually the hero that had to change his life to make their relationship

A year ago after an injury left her unable to dance anymore, Monica moved from NYC to a small town to be closer to her best friend, Charlie. She’s been rooming with Charlie’s fiancé’s brother, Gabe, and the two of them have become best friends.

Gabe is a successful novelist and works from home, so he’s been able to help Monica through her healing process. They’ve always had a flirty banter between them, but nothing has come of it. That is, until now...

Do you set reading goals? One of my goals this year was to read 100 books. After finishing Tempted By My Roommate by Jasmin Miller I have officially met that goal! With how slumpy I’ve been this year I’m shocked I hit this goal as soon as I have. ⁣

Tempted By My Roommate is the sequel/companion novel to Baking With a Rockstar. Monica is Charlie’s best friend and Gabe is Hudson’s brother. This book takes place a little over a year after the last book ended. Monica was healing from a broken leg an

Oh my goodness, Gabe and Monica were the absolute cutest. I loved, LOVEDDDDDD seeing their relationship bloom from the ever so supportive friends to the cutest couple ever.

These two are seriously the best of friends, I really enjoyed them as friends and when they finally decided to be together. There are times when it doesn't al

One Short Summer is a stand-alone novel in the Brooksville series. I have not read the first book but I had no trouble getting into and understanding this one.

"Wow! These Mitchell brothers are just so swoon-worthy! I was really looking forward to this book and I wasn’t disappointed, I just flew through this story."

First, we had Hudson and Charlie, in Baking With A Rockstar, and now this story is about Hudson’s brother, Gabe, and Charlie’s best friend, Monica. From friends and roommates to finally realising the feelings they both have was a delicious slow burn. What smooth-talking sweethearts these brothers are. Their whole family is adorable and I wou

This story is just perfect for romance lovers. In each chapter the narrator changes, so we can understand better the two main characters. The plot is fast paced and you can read the book in just a few days without losing your interest. There are parts of it that are really funny and other that are full of emotions.
The main characters are Monica and Gabe. Monica is a dancer and after a car accident, she has to quit dancing for a while. Gabe is a sweet and caring guy, who's taking care of her. I

I'm loving Jasmin's work. She's definitely becoming one of my favorite authors to read. I loved Gabe and Monica. They were definitely an opposites attract couple. They were too perfect. The emotions with Monica in this book broke my heart. But I adored her. Gabe?? What a hottie! I loved the epilogue as well. This book was so good, I finished it in one sitting. Loved it.

This book is such a sweet story. If you like rom-coms that are settled in the small town then this is a perfect book for you. This is a friends to lovers story about Monica and Gabe, two characters that we met in the first book of this Brooksville series, Baking with a Rockstar. This is a story that will show you that friends are there to push you forward when you feel down. A story that will show you that by having right people by your side you can be unstoppable.

We met Monica and Gabe in the first book, Baking with a Rockstar, and I was so looking forward to their story! Gabe and Monica are spending some time together, but not really, he needed a place to get away, think but as they forge an easy friendship, he's worried about her well being too. She is recouping from a dancing injury, and slowly is getting depressed, so he takes her to his Tahoe house for change of scenery. Its what they both needed. I really loved seeing dual POV's.

I really enjoyed this story. I shows that no matter how strong and confident some is they always need the support of those they care about.

Monica and Gabe are similar but yet different. Monica is carefree and crazy, were as Gabe is quite and reserved. Yet they both struggle in the confidence of who they need to be.

With the straight and encouragement, both Monica and Gabe are able to achieve what they want, in the process fall in love.

The characters are well written, they leave you smiling at the

Gabe and Monica’s story is so much more than I expected. Their love is genuine and surprising to them both. With a year of being best friends, neither truly want to go further expecting it to ruin their friendship, but it only strengthens it. When it’s time for her to return to her world, it’s like a punch in the gut to them both, but for once they’re not good with their words and hide what they’re feeling. I love the HEA though.

This was such a wonderful book, the first I have read from Jasmin Miller. Her character development was absolutely out-of-this world. They were deep, caring, communicative, and were provided with real world, honest emotions. It was so easy to be drawn into this world with the level of realism the author created. Both Gabe and Monica were hesitant to hope for more given their seemingly divergent paths. Would their self-denial cement their separation?

One Short Summer was my first Jasmin Miller read & it was fantastic!! I loved these characters right off the bat, quiet but sensual Gabe & impassioned Monica. Each of them had some personal struggles to overcome but I felt it was very realistic. The roommates/friends to lovers storyline was exactly what I needed to read right now.⁣ ...more

This book pulled me in and kept me entranced till the end. The feelings of love, hate, and pain coming out in waves making you want to cry while you read. This was such a beautiful book! I loved the characters' wholesomeness!
