➳The idea of marriage for the aspect of immigration purposes, has never sounded so enticing in this new compelling romance from Christina Lauren…



➳When being granted the presence of an Irish hottie, with the admiration and talent of music, and the love for keeping his lips smooth and soft by applying lip balm every five minutes, one must learn to admire such a specimen. I sure have, thanks to Christina and Lauren and their welcoming presence of Calvin McLoughlin. An attractive musician, who is at first spotted by Holland Bakker every single time she goes to use the transportation of the subway. In a way, she is very creepily watching him from a far because of her obsession with his love and passion towards music. To her, she not only finds that beyond fascinating, but also it makes Calvin even more attractive to her eyes.

➳Though Holland is very shy and is in the struggling times of trying to identify herself and her writing path, she is rescued by Calvin both in the physical way and also in the emotional way when needed. After finally encountering each other after one night filled with pure terror for Holland, Calvin begins to encounter himself as part of her life. Holland not only introduces Calvin to her uncle who is a mayor hit-list in Broadway, but he gets him a job that one cannot resist if following the performing arts. Due to unfortunate past events and the statues of Calvin’s lack of visa, he struggles to accept such a high position of being the lead musician in a play. That’s when Holland comes in to the rescue, saving the day and many others who would have been moping if not have been able to admire the performance of Calvin.

➳Yes, the relationship is all pretend here, pretend there. However, to the eyes of the reader, you can definitely tell the passion and love both Holland and Calvin have towards each other, in a way that can described as true soul-mates that have met under unexpected circumstances. There is a line in which one must admit the truth or let it come out on its own. Calvin decides to proceed with the latter;
“I’ve never done this before. I just know I’m falling for the girl I married...”


➳ In Calvin’s mind, this is all the man thinks about;



➳Overall, ROOMIES is a love story that is filled with pure romance, comedic aspects coming from both characters, and an aspiration towards finding your true self just as Holland achieves throughout the story. Christina and Lauren never seem to disappoint in this department of mesmerizing stories.
