It’s been more than three weeks since I finished this book but I couldn’t write my review right away because I was too overwhelmed. Also, I was seriously lost after reading it and didn’t know how to rate it. This book really confused me. I loved it, then hated it and finally adored it. I guess if it made me feel so much, it might have been a great read.
I’m sincerely struggling on how to write my review. I want to stay simple and just say if I liked it or not and why, as I do for any other reads but I can’t talk about Roomies without getting personal. After hesitating a lot, I decided to just write whatever comes to my mind, whatever I feel like writing. This blog is a place I created to share my love of books and I love reading because of how it makes me feel. So here goes and I won’t blame you if you just can’t go through this review (apologies in advance for the ranting, haha!).

♥ The story 

Roomies : 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 review 

What a rollercoaster ride! Like I said, I felt so many different emotions during this read.

First, I was really ecstatic. Five chapters in and everything is perfect. I meet this hero which is irresistible. I mean a sexy green-eyed Irish musician. Need I say more ? Oh yeah, the accent…

Spread the love 🙂

My review : I don’t think anyone has escaped the craze around Dating you / Hating you’s release by Christina Lauren. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and when I did, I read it in one go. I didn’t sleep for an entire night to finish it. It was that good.

 

In general 

First, I’ll have to say I’m so pleasantly surprised by this book. I’ve loved all their previous series (some books more than others). However, I didn’t expect something like Dating you / Hating you. It was something else entirely and still, you could feel it was Christina Lauren. Their humor is there, their endearing characters as well but the subject is way more serious. I found that their characters were so well thought, the story was more mature. This book is really a favorite. Well done to those wonderful authors who succeeded in writing something a bit different from what they’re used to and doing it amazingly!
