Book Review: "The Roommate" by Rosie Danan

Rosie Danan's The Roommate is fun and super-steamy, and it's built on a really interesting concept.⁣

⁣ Clara has spent most of her life doing the right things, making the safe choices, to avoid her scandal-prone family experiencing any more embarrassment. But when the man she’s had a crush on since childhood invites her to travel across the country, she throws all caution to the wind and moves to California.⁣

⁣ When she arrives, of course, she learns all is not what it seems. Suddenly she’s sharing a house with Josh, a handsome stranger. He seems to “get” her, which makes her a little uncomfortable, but they fall into an easy friendship/flirtation.⁣ She starts tackling her own issues, including overcoming her fear of driving and finding a job.

⁣ And then she finds out what Josh does for a living: he’s a porn star. A popular one with women, at that. But with his contract with his studio trying to force him down a road he doesn’t want to travel, he has to find a new plan. Surprisingly, it comes from Clara—how can women learn to have better sex? It’s an idea sure to gain traction, and one which Clara is becoming ever more interested in the more time she spends with Josh.⁣

⁣ As the project advances, the attraction between them deepens. But can scandal-shy Clara really imagine her family’s reaction if she dates a porn star? What if her crush finally comes to his senses?⁣ Is Josh willing to let his guard down?

⁣ I enjoyed Rosie Danan’s twist on a typical rom-com. Josh and Clara were two really fun and complex characters, and I liked that the book touched on both of their perspectives and desires. It definitely was thought-provoking and, as you’d imagine, pretty hot!!
