Publisher's Summary

From subway to Broadway to happily ever after. Modern love in all its thrill, hilarity, and uncertainty has never been so compulsively enjoyable as in New York Times and number one international best-selling author Christina Lauren's (Beautiful Bastard, Dating You/Hating You) new romance.

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 realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?

I need an Encore

Let’s be honest I’ve been a fan girl for Christina Lauren since B.B. and they have never disappointed, however I am disappointed now, because I am in serious need of an encore. I have had a book boyfriend in Will since he was first mentioned in their books but he has now be replaced by a Beautiful Irish man. Colin is seriously everything that I would want in a mate, he’s loving, kind, encouraging, faithful, and even when his dreams come true and he could have anyone he still wants his girl! I love this and I need to know what happens after ...

This was an easy read, pretty quick you won’t want to put it down until you finish it! The narrator is amazing and truly does bring this story to life, and the story itself is just so real! More than ever before I believe this is their best book yet and they have truly grown as writers! This book is realistic and heartwarming, and seriously swoon worthy!

I loved it.

I loved the accents by the narrator. Loved the visual descriptions of music. Charming and sweet. Calvin was an adorable male lead.

Don't do it

The story line in this book seems great. I love a good hearted romance in a book. the book itself didn't seem too but but I was completely thrown off by the narrator. She tries to give each character their own voice but her narrating over all is just awful. Please just buy the ebook and save yourself from listening.

So much love for this Dynamic Duo

Goodreads Review: First I should start that I have been a fan of these two ladies for years! Starting with Beautiful Bastard!! I'd read romance but these ladies introduced me to RomComs, and for that, I'm beyond grateful. Now back to this book now that I've gushed about the Authors! Roomies is the perfect blend of comedy and drama. This would make for one hell of a movie. I was hooked from the first page. I felt the emotions, and just overall did not want to put this book down. I read it in about five hours and neglected the adulting I should have been doing. I should probably stop gushing now. Great job again ladies! I can only hope to be as impressive as the two of you one day.

My thoughts on the Audio: K.C. Sheridan was perfect for this story, Now I can't wait to listen to more books with her narrating. I loved listening to books but when the author/s can find a narrator that is perfect for a story it makes it seem that much more real. I'm ready for the next one.

Book was really good, but ending was lackluster

I don’t understand why you write a really good book to not give people a good detailed ending .....gurrrrr😑Makes the rest of the book and the wonderful writing kind of seem like it was a waste.

Grade A for the performance

Okay so I usually hate when audiobooks have a main character with an accent because the narrator can never get the accent right and it kind of ruins the book for me. Not this book- I think Sheridan was actually Irish and if not she did a spot on Irish accent.

Besides that, the book was really good! I don’t think there was really any like slow spots, I was interested the whole time and the two main characters are adorable. Great read!

a nice surprise

I hadn't heard of this author, but saw the title when I was looking for my next download. I read the summary and still was skeptical. after listening to the sample, I gave it a try and was so happy I did. this is a great story! half way through I looked up other titles by Christina Lauren and quickly downloaded, Autoboyography. (LOVED that one too) I found this book to have a humorous innocence and intriguing storyline that kept me interested and guessing how it would end. I gave my partner (she LOVES to read) a copy if Roomies for Christmas. she loved it and said it was a quick read.
