Marriages of convenience are so…inconvenient.
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?
I will read anything from these authors. They guarantee a fantastic, sexy and sweet read every time. And Roomies is another hit!
I love Holland Bakker's character. She's awkwardly awesome. Holland has been floating around in life trying to figure out what she wants to do. She has a great support system from family, but Holland is still missing her passion. One thing Holland does know is that she is enamored by the handsome musician in the subway. For months, she's listened and watched Calvin from afar.
Calvin McLoughlin notices Holland and when an opportunity comes up for an audition to one of the biggest musical, he jumps on it. He woes everybody, but when he's offered the job there's one problem. He legally can't work in the States. And when Holland proposes a to wed the Irishman, it all changes for the both. Not only does Calvin get his dream job, but lines start to blur with Holland.
Roomies is a sweet, funny and romantic coming to age book.
