Publisher's Summary

Wanted: a roommate.

Requirements:

  1. Don’t be a smoker. That’s gross.
  2. Don’t be a jerk. I have no time to deal with your mood swings.
  3. Clean up after yourself. Is it really so hard to put dirty clothes where they belong?

If you meet these qualifications, call me.

Sincerely,

Desperately Seeking Roommate

When I put the ad in my university’s newspaper, the last thing I ever expect is for the star football player to respond. From what I know of him, Abel Russo is a womanizer and an absolute jerk.

Sadly, he’s the only thing stopping me from being evicted by my annoyingly gleeful landlord. It should be easy enough - there’s no chance we’ll fall for each other. But then he gives me lingering looks, and I might just be looking back. 

All I wanted was a roommate, but I’m about to get so much more than I bargained for.

So entertaining!!

I haven’t heard this narrators voice before and I have to say she’s incredibly talented at the different voices for both male and female characters! Even the kids voices...too flipping cute!!!!
I thought she brought Lou to life really well and I just loved listening to this book so much!
Its a refreshing, entertaining story with quirky but fun characters and the storyline is great from start to finish! A thoroughly enjoyable audiobook!
Very well done!!!

Re-Read in September 2019

I got a free code to listen to Desperately Seeking Roommate from Micalea Smeltzer. I really enjoyed listening to Desperately Seeking Roommate. I love Lou and Able. I can't wait to read Desperately Seeking Landlord.

A great story

Lou and Abel’s story was a good one. When a meeting of circumstance can lead to something more. Addison Barnes did a good job narrating the story. I enjoyed listening and seeing what happened next. Their story was a cute romance.

This made me laugh so much...

This is the first book I read/listened to and I couldn't put this down. I enjoyed the banter between Lou and Abe. I loved the dialog of Lou and her best friend Miranda. How Miranda will always have her back and do outlandish stuff. I nearly spit my drink out several times of her comments. I can't wait for the 2nd book of this series.

Good book

This was a really sweet feel good kind of book. Girl character very quirky and different. A story that made you feel good without a lot of doubting on the characters part. Worth the money.

Sweet, sexy, and fun!

Lou and Abel are so cute! Lou is quirky and funny, awkward at times, and open and honest. She’s desperate for a roommate and Abel turns out to be so much more than she was expecting. These two are great together! I loved their games and their chemistry. They kept me giggling and smiling throughout their story. It’s cute, sweet, sexy, and fun. I truly enjoyed it.

OH MY GAWD! Love love loved this one

OH MY GAWD!!!!

I listened to this story in audio. That narrator was perfect, that story was perfect, I loved everything!
DSR had a little bit of everything. This was my first time reading or rather listening to a story by this author and I am so happy with the outcome. I’ll definitely be reading more books by this author.

I’m going to need to go pick up the actual book so I can highlight favorite quotes and parts of the story. ... who am I kidding the whole book would probably highlighted.

New my favourite couple

Where do I start??? Abe and Lou are just amazing!!! They are my new favourite couple, I just loved there chemistry, right from the start I was just gripped.

Lou was the kind of person that I could see myself being friends with. She was just her self and didn’t care what thought of her.

Abe is a totally babe!!! How he was with his family was just to adorable!

This is a book that you should definitely read!! The characters are amazing and once again Micalea does it again. She has just written the best love story from start to end

I enjoyed it

Desperately Seeking Roommate was a sweet, hilarious RomCom that will leave you amused. This friends to lovers or should I say roommates to lovers college romance was heart-warming, sexy and at times steamy with lots of sassy banter that I really did enjoy. I loved the main characters and the side characters. Quirky, over the top, swoony they had it all. My only issue with the story was that the h fell for the "trap" too easily when it was obviously a setup. I would recommend this story to those looking for a light, easy read.
I listened to the audible version of this story which was narrated by Addison Barnes. Addison's portrayal of the male voice was excellent and I enjoyed it, however the female's voice felt young and it took me a while to get used to it. However after a while I did enjoy the narration.
