Roomies by Christina Lauren

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Summary: Marriages of convenience are so…inconvenient.

Rescued by Calvin McLoughlin from a would-be subway attacker, Holland Bakker pays the brilliant musician back by pulling some of her errand-girl strings and getting him an audition with a big-time musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until he admits his student visa has expired and he’s in the country illegally.

Holland impulsively offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York, her growing infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves from awkward roommates to besotted lovers, Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway. In the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting, what will it take for Holland and Calvin to realise that they both stopped pretending a long time ago? 

My Thoughts: I am always looking forward to Christina Lauren’s books. They are so funny and the characters are always relatable, this book was no different. I read this book in a matter of days! It was hard to take their marriage situation serious, but when I took into consideration that this is only a work of fiction, I was able to enjoy it better. I really loved the setting, it all sounded so romantic- because I mean, anything in New York is always so fun and beautiful, let’s be honest, and I think that was my favorite part and the main reason why I rated is so high. The plot sort of fell flat to me, though it was cute, but their surroundings was what sealed the deal. It was its own character that I wanted to get to know more of, but alas, it was about young love. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet and quick love story.
