"From subway to Broadway to happily ever after. Modern love in all its thrill, hilarity, and uncertainty has never been so compulsively readable as in New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren's (Beautiful Bastard, Dating You / Hating You) new romance. 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 bigtime 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 realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?"-- Provided by publisher.

This is the first book that I read by this author and I was immediately intrigued. This was a great read and I am looking forward to reading more books by her.

Roomies was a delight to read. I read many romances and am usually disappointed in some aspect or other of the story. This one checked all the boxes for me: great characters, smart dialogue, a believable if improbable premise, well-written. And no annoying, stupid, I’m-not-worthy angst. The female protagonist comes into her own as a smart, talented, confident woman as the plot progresses. I’m going to go back and check out earlier books by Christina Lauren in hopes of finding more to like.
