Roomies by Christina Lauren #XOXperts #roomies

These are just SOME of my roomies…Peanut, Sassy and Lulu. Needless to say, my lap is always full.


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?


Calvin is a subway musician. Holland is a huge fan. (She is kind of a stalker fan!). Through many strange occurrences she actually ends up marrying him to keep him in the country.

I fell in love with Calvin, aka, Jack right from the start. And Holland…she is a flawed, hardworking, sweet girl. I love how she can laugh at herself and pick herself up and move on. I caught myself laughing at many of her antics. She made the book for me. She and Calvin are sort of mismatched and this just makes their story is much better.

Also, Holland has two great uncles. These guys really take care of her and make this story about so much more. Family plays a huge role in Holland’s life and it just makes you smile as you read about it. I would love a book about the uncles. They really add to the tale and create a sweet place for Holland.

A great, fantabulous, awesome…I could go on and on…palate cleanser. This has a little bit of everything. Need a quick, cute read…this one is for you!

I received this novel from Simon and Schuster as part of #XOXPERTS.
