Felix Vasquez Jr. James Luxford. A storyline that unimaginatively rehashes countless pivotal elements from other stalker-themed movies means that the whole production is a dull and pointless exercise that twists and turns in precisely the manner you expect it to.

I love any story-line about two strangers: having totally opposite character traits, sharing a same house, forced to spend more time together, slowly leaving their comfort zones and something dazzlingly hot, sexy starts to build around them: yes, my friends: an incredible, fiery, passionate chemistry.
I even forgot I This is not bad but I expected more! I even forgot I was at the grocery store line when I was grabbing my ipad and pushing the request button.
But unfortunately the plot that I visualized: the lovely and also annoying characterization and frenemies theme kind of undeniably hot and sexy story already left the building and there were only: 1 Unlikable heroine: Actually she was not unlikable, she was just flat, boring and her character was undeveloped.
She just reminded me of a spinster with a stick stuck to her ass. I did everything empathize with her. The emotional building of the story was missing element of the story.
I gave all the stars because I loved the hero and I also have to say: the cover of the book is so unique. I was expecting something more.

This book has the premise of my dreams and it was SO. It was sassy and sexy and just an all around good-time lol. However, with all that being said, I do think I may have gone into this one with my hopes just a liiiiiiiittle bit too high.
I did still REALLY enjoy it and a 4 star rating is obviously nowhere near a bad rating, but based on the premise I went into this thinking it would be an insta-favorite and it just didn't quite reach that level.

And so much fun!! I pretty much was giggling through this entire read. Josh is an absolute sweetheart of a hero, if incredibly horny I mean, he IS a porn star and Clara is adorably awkward.
If you love eager to please heroes who will do anything to give the heroine the best orgasms of her life, you have to read The Roommate.
I really liked this book and it has my favorite set up, the roommate trope!! The opposites attract vibe of the story was really fun and I think the character's personalities complimented each other very well and the dialogue in this story was hilarious.
This story also had so many heartwarming, cute moments of domesticity a I really liked this book and it has my favorite set up, the roommate trope!!
This story also had so many heartwarming, cute moments of domesticity and I absolutely loved to see it. This was the forced proximity trope done right and this relationship was incredibly fun to read about.
I really appreciated what the book had to say on these topics. Either the book should have been longer to accommodate this narrative choice or the argument could have been avoided entirely because there was enough external conflict to carry the story without it.
Also I really think this book wildly missed the mark in terms of clara's family prominence and her worries about reputation and the "society pages" and whatever the hell else.
It really did not make sense to me that so much of her inner conflict revolves around this and yet we never encounter her uptight family at all on page and we don't see her resolving her issues with them.
It was a weird choice, or maybe I just don't care about rich girl problems idk. So the ending was not as satisfying to me as I hoped despite this book being really enjoyable prior to then so I'm feeling conflicted on how to rate my experience with the story.
I'm hoping to reread when it releases and maybe the ending will hit different then. View 1 comment. House Rules: Do your own dishes Knock before entering the bathroom Never look up your roommate online Will I ever get tired of the roommate trope?
Not likely. View all 7 comments. Jul 31, Christy rated it liked it Shelves: three-stars-or-less. I love those forced proximity books and the fact that the roommates were strangers, gimmie!
Clara Wheaton is a socialite that just finished grad school. As soon as she gets there she realized this was a huge mistake.
Emmett 3. Emmett sublets his room out to Josh and has Clara living with a stranger temporarily while he travels with his band. What a warm welcome.
Clara and Josh are complete strangers but they get along well enough at first. Then Clara finds out what Josh does for a living.
And after finding out things going on with his career, she decides to help him with a cause she believes in.
I honestly expected to love this one, but unfortunately it was just okay for me. My only real problem with this one was I never felt the connection between Clara and Josh.
I can find characters unrelatable and still love a book, but I have to feel their connection, the romance has to be real for me and unfortunately I never felt much between these two.
Overall, this was a nice debut novel that I think a lot of people will love. It had some humor and steam and was enjoyable for me.
I am looking forward to seeing what Rosie Danan has in store for us next. Sweet, sexy, sizzling, swoonie, sassy, and so much fun! Rosie Danan has written a clever and entertaining opposites attract romcom.
Clara comes from a conservative proper East Coast family and has just moved to LA to force things with her lifetime crush Everett. BUT Everett is off touring with his subpar band and now Clara finds herself living with a complete stranger.
Josh is the darling of the adult entertainment industry and does not quite know what to think of uptight Clara. What follows is Sweet, sexy, sizzling, swoonie, sassy, and so much fun!
What follows is an engaging story full of heat and humor. Love the relationship that developed between Clara and Josh. I love the endeavor that these two started together.
Clara really as uptight as she was she really had an open mind and was willing to learn, listen, and let go. The story addressed a lot of the issues in the porn industry as well as giving the performers a human face.
Great story, fabulous cast of characters, slow burn romance, sizzling chemistry. All opinions are my own. Oct 03, Camilla rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , audiobook , favorite-romance.
This book was extremely hot. Also, it was my favorite romance of This came as a huge surprise. I don't usually rate romances 5 stars, because it's very hard to surprise me, since I've read so many books of this genre.
However, this one was extremely refreshing and well written. It all starts with Clara, a girl with very conservative upbringing, moving to LA to live with her lifetime crush, only to be dumped and find out that she's actually having a porn star, Josh Darling, as her actual ro This book was extremely hot.
It all starts with Clara, a girl with very conservative upbringing, moving to LA to live with her lifetime crush, only to be dumped and find out that she's actually having a porn star, Josh Darling, as her actual roommate.
They develop a friendship and so much more after that, even though they inhabit completely different worlds.
I related so much to Clara and her control freak ways, though always with a spark of curiosity, but I do think that Josh is the highlight of this book.
He was one of the most original heroes I've ever read, absolutely dreamy but his character had a lot of depth, especially because of his profession.
I think that this book did for the porn industry what The Girl in 6E did for cam girls, and I found it so interesting how Rosie Danan managed to balance the romance with the other plots points within the story.
I also can't believe that this was a debut, because the writing was amazing. One would think that a romance so filled with sex would get tiring, but it didn't.
I can't recommend this one enough and also, the audiobook was amazing! Clara wiped off the seat of the sofa before sitting down.
Super charming and sex-positive re: sex work. If she has a trust fund, then why did she need to room with Josh once her friend bailed on her? I rolled with it.
Also super weird that her family is in the background and never makes an appearance like one would predict. Literally who cares, and the book agrees with me because we never find out!
I am projecting here because it is truly minor, but god do I hate any mention of the Kama Sutra in western contexts.
This is my complaint for posterity. Moving on. As usual in recent contemporary rom-coms, the third act breakup happens wayyy too late and is resolved wayyy too late.
This is not news if you know me, but I take all opportunities to air my grievances re: this topic. Not going to write a longform review to gush over everything I liked I liked a lot!
Definitely check out an excerpt to see if you click with the writing. I have to give props because the book nails that terror; reading those scenes was like reflecting a mirror over my amygdala.
I got my license after failing the test twice when I was eighteen, and then promptly never drove again. And unlike Clara, I will never move to Los Angeles, thus living out a blissful carless existence in urban environments with good well, livable public transit.

So, what's this book about? The Wheatons are infamous among the east coast elite for their lack of impulse control, except for their daughter Clara.
I want to get my overall feelings of this book out of the way before I dive into a deep analysis of the main theme. I enjoyed this romance novel. I was slightly disappointed because it wasn't The setting it took place in was very I was also rather disappointed by the steaminess.
Don't get me wrong, it was decently steamy. Definitely an audiobook you need to listen with headphones on but all the prepub reviews were just raving about how ridiculously steamy it was I'm not quite sure why he uses pseudonyms.
They did a fantastic job, as always and that's really all I have to say about them. So, now onto the main theme of this book.
Okay, I was planning to insert a gif of someone dramatically saying sex so I search "sex gifs" and the results loaded before my brain realized how bad of an idea that was.
Anywho, sex. That is the theme. Let's talk about SEX. Being raised in a Christian home, I grew up in an atmosphere of sex neutrality.
I wouldn't say sex negativity because my parents did talk to me about sex and did have conversations with me whenever I wanted to.
That said, I ended up thinking that sex was something done behind closed doors. You didn't talk about it. Since then, I've become a lot more comfortable with sex in general.
Honestly, I think reading romance novels have been a huge aspect in that. Anywho, my long winded point is that this book did what would have been helpful to me many years ago.
It kind of educated and encouraged. That said, I have mixed feelings on all of it, mainly porn. I personally don't watch porn and I have absolutely no judgment towards people who do.
I personally think it's over the top and gory I absolutely loved the themes of self love and breaking down the stigma of sex and porn. I think it is so important to have love for your own body.
And I love that this book encourages the recognition that sex is a thing. It's a natural thing and not something to be ashamed of but rather be embraced.
This book will be an inspiration and encouragement to many readers. I was truly fascinated by the exploration of the porn industry.
It's something I know close to nothing about and I really want to learn more. As I said earlier, I have mixed feelings on porn. It seems there are very polarizing views.
Either you think porn is evil and destroys marriages or you think it's liberating and helpful. Those are basically the two ends of the spectrum. Although the book mostly focused on the porn is good side, they did show that there was more nuance to it.
That said, I do wish said nuance had been dived into more than it was but maybe we'll just have to wait until the next book for that. Overall, this book was creative and pretty steamy and romantic.
I can't wait for the next book! Sep 16, Blythe The Word Junkie rated it it was amazing Shelves: so-great-that-deserves-a-reread , cute-couple-stans , dear-to-my-heart , lol-worthy-moments , romance-stans , recommendable-romance , interesting-tandem , bookworm-characters , rated-r.
The kind people give their lives for. This story would be great for the reluctant readers of sex and pleasure. Erasing the Guilty in Guilty Pleasure.
Rosie Danan's debut is laying down great statements: " Pleasure isn't one size fits all. And the playlist. Also gives insights on the condescension and unwelcome harassment these sex workers are prone to outside of work.
Feminist is only one of its many facets. Not to add, he sings "Walking on Sunshine" beautifully off-key just to deter you from an impending anxiety attack.
The ex-girlfriend is not annoying and a hovering antagonist I actually love her character!!! Order this one and let it rip!
Though in my opinion, the chemistry between the two did not feel as cemented and dynamic as I wished it be. Everything aside that, I'm good. I'm great.
This book deserves my 4. Excited for book 2: The Intimacy Experiment. It really cemented the "erasing the guilty in guilty pleasure" notion for me.
That part completely broke barrier. Clara Wheaton. Raised by a family of high-society reputations, this lady is crazily infatuated with his childhood friend, crazy enough to move across towns and delay dream jobs, just to move in with said friend.
She has convinced herself that she'll have this summer-long chance to convince said friend how much of a match they are.
She's got it all planned out. Except for the fact that said friend exited the scenario before she could even unpack her luggage, leaving her with a stranger roommate for the rest of the summer, inside a big house, in a city she's completely new in.
Josh Conners. The epitome of sunshine and all things charming and laid-back. He is thankful enough to land the rent for a room, that is definitely more expensive than what he paid for.
His job in the entertainment industry is paying, but not well enough, despite the uproars of his million subscribers and him being headlined as " The Catnip for Millenial Women.
Josh and Clara may have a lot of differences between them, but they did find an agenda they are both willing to work on: Better women orgasms.
The two set off to create a platform dedicated to just that. A how-to guide on women's orgasms and hitting it right. On this journey, they help each other on helping others get lucky.
This book is in third person. Some of you may not appeal to that much when it comes to romance genres, I would have been one of you, but in reading this, I did not mind at all.
That scene gave me a bad case of The Melts. I did rate this a week or so ago, but it has disappeared.. Jul 26, Fadwa Word Wonders added it Shelves: adult , sent-for-review , releases , romance , reads.
This one was doing so good, especially when it comes to discussion around sex work and porn more specifically, the tension between the two MCs was great, and the sex scenes were some good shit too.
But then that ending had to happen and it was a complete fucking mess and dampened my enjoyment of the story.
