Review Tour ~ Roommate by Sarina Bowen

Wanted: One roommate to share a 3-bedroom house, split the rent, and ideally not be the guy I can’t stop thinking about.  

I’m a man with too many secrets, so the last thing I need is a new roommate with a sexy smile and blue eyes that see right through me. Eight years ago, Roderick left town after high school. We’re not friends. I owe him nothing. But back then, I let one of my secrets slip, and he’s the only one who noticed.

Part of me knows I should run far, far away. But the other part wants him to come upstairs and spend the night. But if I let him in, I could lose everything.

Seeking: a room to rent in town. I’m tidy, have no pets, and I will feed you homemade bread. 

I should probably add: Gay AF, and has no filter. It’s no wonder my new landlord is so wary of me.

A smarter man would ignore those hot glances from Kieran Shipley. The broody lumberjack wants more from me than another fresh-baked pretzel. But if I push my luck, I’ll end up back on the street.

Too bad I’ve never been smart with my heart…

4.5 Stars!

Back when I read Bountiful (True North #4), I hoped Sarina Bowen would eventually write Kieran and Roderick’s story, and even if it took 3 years, she finally did and it was everything I’d been hoping for!

Kieran was the responsible, kind of gruff one. He had good reasons for being grumpy, too. I really wanted to hug him and make it better when everything was revealed. Roderick was easygoing and seemingly unaffected by things, although he really was down on his luck and trying to make the most out of a bad situation. They were really good together, supportive of each other, sweet, comforting, fun and the sparks between them could’ve lit up a stadium on their own!

I loved catching up with Audrey, Griff, Zara, and the Shipley family. They’re just so much fun.

This was such a great read! Angsty, hot, sweet, and fun, I simply couldn’t put it down until I finished. Definitely recommendable!
