Title: Roomies
Author: Lindy Zart
Genre: NA Rom-Com

Blurb:

Blurb: Graham Malone is my roommate, my personal eye candy, the reason I get up in the morning smiling (that could be from the illicit dreams I have about him too, I suppose. Let’s move on.). He’s also beautiful to look at, but his heart is where his true beauty lies. Take away the exterior and the interior still shines.

I love him. I mean, I’m pretty sure I do, having never been in love before. Anyway, it seems legit.

And now his brother Blake is here, and, well, he’s the complete opposite of Graham. Sarcastic, brooding, and totally available. But he’s leaving soon, and Graham’s the one I want. I shouldn’t have to remind myself of this, right? I wouldn’t have to if Blake would quit looking at me like I’m something yummy and he’s starving.

Here’s a toast to roomies; the ones you should never fall in love with. Or something.

My Review:

5 out of 5 stars

I was so excited for this book’s release. The blurb intrigued me from the moment I read it. I couldn’t wait to get to know Graham, Kennedy and Blake. As soon as I read the dedication at the beginning of the book, I knew I was in for a treat! I instantly knew that I was going to love Kennedy.  I could totally relate to her sarcasm and wit. Then I was introduced to Graham. Hellooooo! I loved the relationship between him and Kennedy. Blake took some getting used to, but he was such an important part of the story. I grew fond of him as well.
Lindy Zart never ceases to amaze me with her talent to tell a story. The characters are always real, relateable.

If you are looking for a book that will help you forget about the holiday stress, grab Roomies! It will have you laughing as soon as you open the first page, I promise!

Excerpt:

He gives a slight smile. “You don’t know everything about me.”
“I should know that.” Maybe I shouldn’t, but I really feel like I should. Graham’s pretty much the most important thing to me; I should at least know his family history. He knows mine. Well, most of it. Some of it. Enough…
“Now you do. Are we done? I really need to put some clothes on.”
“But…you said he was in school,” I finish lamely, my voice dropping to a whisper.
“He’s in college.”
I scowl at him. “You purposely led me to believe that your brother was some pimply teenager who was going to mooch off you for the remainder of the summer, not…not…” I jab a finger in the direction of the living room.
“Not what?”
“Not some hottie!” I blurt out, and then wish I hadn’t.
Especially when Graham rears back and gets a funny look on his face. “You think my brother’s hot?” His voice is even, but his eyes look weird. Like, angry or something. A thrill goes down my spine at the thought of my comment having that effect on him. Could he be jealous?
“Yes.” I nod firmly.
“Huh.” He looks away.
A dash of regret has the audacity to chase the little thrill away. I wonder if I’ve upset him, but then decide I haven’t. Why would he be upset? Unless he doesn’t know I think he’s hot too. So I figure I should tell him. It would be rude not to.
“You’re also hot.”
He gives me a look; part incredulous, part I don’t know what. “Thanks,” he says faintly.
“Yeah.” I start to feel dumb about pretty much the whole conversation. “Okay. ‘Bye.”
“’Bye.”
I glance back at him. He is staring at me with a frown pulling his mouth down. “You should put some clothes on.”
“Right.”
I enter the living room. Blake is studying a fake plant in the corner of the room, which pretty much confirms that he was listening to our complete word exchange. Wonderful.

Review: #Nerd by Cambria Hebert

Synopsis
Two people from completely different worlds are about to be thrown together…
In more ways than one.
She wants to keep her scholarship. He wants to stay on the team. An awkward alliance doesn’t even begin to cover Rimmel and Romeo’s relationship.
But that’s about to change.
It starts with a dare. An initiation. A challenge.
Quickly, it turns into more. But when you’re a victim of your status, there is no room for anything real. The rules are clear and simple.
Stick to your circle.
And never fall in love with anyone on the outside.

My Review:
5 out of 5 stars
Throughout #Nerd by Cambria Hebert we get a chance to meet and get to know Rimmell and Romeo.  They are both college students at Alpha U and couldn’t be from more different worlds.  We get to see the story play out when they are forced to spend time together.
I really, really, really enjoyed this book.  Once I started, I could not put it down.  I instantly fell in love with the characters.  There were many qualities in Rimmell that I could to relate to and Romeo, well he was just downright swoonworthy.  I felt truly vested in the story, like what happened in the story would actually affect me in real life.  Murphy the cat definitely earned a special place in my heart.  There were parts that reminded me of Gossip Girl which I absolutely loved.
Whenever Hebert releases a new book, I know I will love it.  This one is no exception.  If you are looking for a funny, sweet, great book, look no further.  Get #Nerd by Cambria Hebert today.  It’s trending!
