Publisher's Summary

From bestselling author Sariah Wilson comes a charming romance about living your life one dream at a time.

Madison Huntington is determined to live her dreams. That means getting out from under her family’s wealth and influence by saying no to the family business, her allowance, and her home. But on a teacher’s salary, the real world comes as a rude awakening - especially when she wakes up every morning on a colleague’s couch. To get a place of her own (without cockroaches, mold, or crime scene tape), Madison accepts a position as a roommaid. In exchange for free room and board, all she needs to do is keep her busy roommate’s penthouse clean and his dog company. So what if she’s never washed a dish in her life. She can figure this out, right? 

Madison is pretty confident she can fake it well enough that Tyler Roth will never know the difference. The finance whiz is rich and privileged and navigates the same social circles as her parents - but to him she’s just a teacher in need of an apartment. He’s everything Madison has run from, but his kindhearted nature, stomach-fluttering smile, and unexpected insecurities only make her want to get closer. And Tyler is warming to the move. 

Rewarding job. Perfect guy. Great future. With everything so right, what could go wrong? Madison is about to find out.

Worst narration ever

The woman reading this book ruined it for me. I didn’t make it past the first chapter. She sounds like a very aggressive, very very bad news reporter. Too fast, too breathy. Awful.

Light and Sweet. Not my favourite narration

3/5 stars

Room-maid is a light, sweet and fun story. The plot provides low angst and was enjoyable for the most part, however there were parts of the story and characters I struggled to connect with. Madison grew up wealthy but didn't really feel she fit into that world. She dreamed of becoming a teacher and making it on her own and when she makes that dream a reality she is cut off by her family. She ends up in a roommate/maid situation with Tyler. I wasn’t sure what to think about Tyler at first. I did warm up to him about half way through however I felt his character was a little under developed. With the forced proximity the romance was sweet but predictable.

I struggled with the narrator chosen. Her voice wasn’t the right fit for this character in my opinion. A different narrator may have made this a more enjoyable listening experience.

I don’t get the good reviews....

I don’t want to go on and on with a negative review, so I’ll just say I agree with a couple other reviewers—the narration was so whiny and stilted that it was nearly unbearable. While perhaps the story would have been better if I’d read it, the main character seemed very immature, flat, and unappealing. I bailed about 70% through, which is not easy for me to do.

Juvenile Character and Painful Narration (Updated)

I’m at Chapter 6 of 27 chapters and so far the story is ok enough to keep listening. Has some humor. Main character acts more like an immature young teenager, more so than a young adult fresh out of college.
The narrator cannot do male voices. Any of the men she tries to portray reminds me of Lucy Ball trying to fool Ricky Ricardo in her crooked fake mustache and clownish oversized suit. Tyler is suppose to be this hunk, even having his manly voice described, and all I can do is cringe when the narrator tries to portray a male voice. All I can see of the men she voices is Lucy Ball trying to pull off a low manly voice. Neither one is believable as a male’s voice. Lucy’s was intended to be funny, this is not. The producers should have had a male narrator along side her, the Book would be much more enjoyable if they had.
Update: As I finished the book, I tried to decide who the audience for this book would be. At some moments it’s suitable for a pre-teen/tween to learn things about housekeeping and other places it’s more for an older teen. There are some clever jokes and some that are not so much, that along with other things in the story, cause an “Oh, brother” reaction. However, there was enough substance to the story that I did finish the book

Must Download!

I extremely enjoyed listening to this book from beginning til the end. The narrator brought the book to life. The female main character is so loveable and such a inspiring character. I love the dynamic between Madison and her friends and Tyler. This book is heartwarming. its a MUST READ!!

Thoroughly Enjoyable and Sweet Romance

I really enjoyed this sweet romance. The heroine stands up to her wealthy and manipulative family to strike out on her own, without their money and support. She grows as a person and through that inspires those around her, to be strong and follow their passions. That means coming to terms with her family's expectations, cutting loose her serial cheater of a boyfriend, and developing a strong friendship with her mouth wateringly hot roommate. He is trying to overcome his own childhood issues by having a lot of money, the right job, the right home, and the right social network, all things our heroine has rejected. Nonetheless, between her initial attraction and their growing closeness, she can't help falling for him. She tries to respect the boundaries he's set, that he is not interested in anything more than being roommates and friends, especially since no one in her own life has ever respected her boundaries. Now she just has to figure out what to do about her feelings for him.

I liked this different twist on the roommates to lovers trope. It isn't the most substantial of stories, but is a nice, light read and the characters show good personal growth. The narrator bothered me a little at first, as she's a little bit overly bright and ran with her sentences a bit, but as the book went on, I didn't mind so much. Her male voices aren't terribly male, but were enough of a distinction that it was ok. The narration didn't prevent me from enjoying the book.

Fun story. Hated the narration

I just can’t stand the way she reads. It’s so whiny and sounds fake. Wish I’d read it instead of listened.

Hysterical

This book had me laughing out loud throughout the book. It reminded me of the Janet Evanovich books I have read. I loved this book!

Cute plot idea ruined by ridiculousness

This book could have been so good! None of us read/listen to romance because they are realistic, but……. We are somehow expected to believe that it extremely wealthy heiress is cut off from her family for getting her college degree in teaching. Yet her parents somehow support her all through college because she graduates and then realizes she doesn’t know how to do a load of laundry, load a dishwasher, dust or vacuum. And no student loans. Really? On top of that, she goes to some college that doesn’t even teach their teachers about positive reinforcement. It could’ve been a really funny, cute story- but how this woman could actually receive a degree from any accredited college was beyond me. The level of ridiculousness in the ineptitude of the heroine just ruined the story for me.

As expected

So, I knew what I was getting into so I feel a little bad about hating the book throughout but... Could be worst.

A bouncy, bubbly, bimbo of a book.

I felt like my hair had been washed and not rinsed properly. This is not a book that takes women seriously and the high pitched voice and delivery of the reader left me feeling that I had been nagged for hours.

very movies 24

I quite liked this story obviously predictable with an HEA at the end but I did not get bored and there were enough little diversions to maintain the interest.
Lauren Ezzo reading was good although her effected accent of the naive rich girl was a bit off putting at first but grew on me.
Very Cinderella like but I do wish after investing time and interest in the characters that there would be an epilogue chapter! if it was good enough for Jane Austen then don't leave the reader hanging.

So bad

Narrator 2 stars
This narrator is a massive over actor which I didn't even know was possible for an audiobook.

Story 1 star
If your looking for a good RomCom that gives you all the feels this is not it.

It so painfully cheesy I vomited at the end
