The Roommate Agreement is a friends-to-lovers story that is filled with swoon worthy laugh-out-loud moments that are going to keep you wanting for more.

At the beginning of the story we get to meet Shelby Daniels, a struggling writer who is making ends meet by ghostwriting and writing freelance news articles while she works on her own book. But even though she works from home, for the last three months she has been putting up with chaos in her apartment as her new roommate takes over her place. Since her best friend, Jay Copper moved in she has been picking up after him and to make things worse he keeps eating her Oreos!

Shelby has had enough and that’s when she decides to make a roommate agreement with rules that will help bring order back into her life. This will ultimately also help stop her newfound crush on her best friend from developing further. Needless to say, that doesn’t work out as a drunken confession puts their friendship at stake and she has to decide if pursuing a relationship with him is worth it or not.

Ever since his apartment building was sold, Jay Copper found himself homeless and with the hopes of taking time to look for a new place her moves in with Shelby. Though they are best friends, he quickly finds out how completely different they are. So when she tells him about the roommate agreement, he decides to write down a few of his own. But rules are meant to be broken, especially with all the sexual tension between them. Jay is about to get more than he bargain for.

I absolutely loved reading this book, it was hilarious and romantic. Emma Hart delivers characters that are swoon worthy and quirky. Shelby is such a feisty heroine who needs order in her life and when that is disturbed she finds herself quickly making a roommate agreement. It’s evident from the start that she has a crush on her best friend and that’s why she writes down the agreement so that there is distance between them while she figures out her feelings. They’ve practically know each other their whole lives and a relationship could ruin that and she doesn’t want that. Jay is used to people doing everything for her so he is for a rude awakening when Shelby puts him to work, mainly to pick up after himself. He is kind and patient with Shelby. Their moments together are romantic and funny. I loved their banters and the twists at the end. Definitely didn’t see them coming. What helps the book as well is the dual POV between the characters as we get to understand the decisions that they make along the way. All in all, the storyline was on point and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a swoon worthy read. ;)
