~ Synopsis ~
Graham Malone is my roommate, my personal eye candy, the reason I get up in the morning smiling (that could be from the illicit dreams I have about him too, I suppose. Let’s move on.). He’s also beautiful to look at, but his heart is where his true beauty lies. Take away the exterior and the interior still shines.
I love him. I mean, I’m pretty sure I do, having never been in love before. Anyway, it seems legit.
And now his brother Blake is here, and, well, he’s the complete opposite of Graham. Sarcastic, brooding, and totally available. But he’s leaving soon, and Graham’s the one I want. I shouldn’t have to remind myself of this, right? I wouldn’t have to if Blake would quit looking at me like I’m something yummy and he’s starving.
Here’s a toast to roomies; the ones you should never fall in love with. Or something.
~ Review by Angela ~
*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
Even though I was given a copy of this book, I bought a copy as well. I tend to do this with books that I love so that way I have the final copy in my possession. My pal and fellow hooligan, Joood at Platypire Reviews harassed me about Lindy’s books a long time ago. I have read other books that she has written (not all of them yet), but I think Roomies is my favorite so far. I enjoyed the emotions that were on display throughout the book. The anguish Kennedy felt when she would think about or look at Graham was real and palpable. I mean, we’ve all been there at least once in our lives. Kennedy is also a fantastically hilarious and sarcastic character that I enjoyed immensely. Her interactions with Graham and Blake were awesome and the relationship she has with them is perfect.
I loved that even though this was a romance, there wasn’t sex or overly mushy sentiments being slung around. There was no one calling the other “babe” or “baby” which I loathe. Lindy is real adept at portraying the dynamic and complicated emotions that are involved when there is a secret crush or secret love. I was able to put myself in Kennedy’s position and I was able to relate with her on a personal level. I give Roomies 5 books.
