🌟BLOG TOUR!🌟 The Roommate Agreement by Emma Hart {REVIEW + EXCERPT}




The Roommate Agreement by Emma Hart

Release Date: March 26th 2019
Pages: 199
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

A brand new best-friends-to-lovers romcom from Emma Hart.

Let your homeless best friend stay with you, he said. Being roommates will be fun, he said. It's only temporary, he said.
He never said I'd fall for him.

You know what isn't 'temporary?' The endless stream of dirty socks in my bathroom and empty food packets under the sofa—and don't even get me started on the hot guys who take over my living room every Sunday to watch sports.
I can't take anymore.
So I propose a roommate agreement. One that will bring peace and order back to my life, complete with rules that might just stop my newfound crush on my best friend in its tracks.
After all, there’s only so many times you can see your best friend naked before you start to lose your mind.

Rules. They're meant to be broken... Aren't they?
 



My Review:

The Roommate Agreement is a friends-to-lovers story that is filled with swoon worthy laugh-out-loud moments that are going to keep you wanting for more.

At the beginning of the story we get to meet Shelby Daniels, a struggling writer who is making ends meet by ghostwriting and writing freelance news articles while she works on her own book. But even though she works from home, for the last three months she has been putting up with chaos in her apartment as her new roommate takes over her place. Since her best friend, Jay Copper moved in she has been picking up after him and to make things worse he keeps eating her Oreos!

Shelby has had enough and that’s when she decides to make a roommate agreement with rules that will help bring order back into her life. This will ultimately also help stop her newfound crush on her best friend from developing further. Needless to say, that doesn’t work out as a drunken confession puts their friendship at stake and she has to decide if pursuing a relationship with him is worth it or not.

Ever since his apartment building was sold, Jay Copper found himself homeless and with the hopes of taking time to look for a new place her moves in with Shelby. Though they are best friends, he quickly finds out how completely different they are. So when she tells him about the roommate agreement, he decides to write down a few of his own. But rules are meant to be broken, especially with all the sexual tension between them. Jay is about to get more than he bargain for.

I absolutely loved reading this book, it was hilarious and romantic. Emma Hart delivers characters that are swoon worthy and quirky. Shelby is such a feisty heroine who needs order in her life and when that is disturbed she finds herself quickly making a roommate agreement. It’s evident from the start that she has a crush on her best friend and that’s why she writes down the agreement so that there is distance between them while she figures out her feelings. They’ve practically know each other their whole lives and a relationship could ruin that and she doesn’t want that. Jay is used to people doing everything for her so he is for a rude awakening when Shelby puts him to work, mainly to pick up after himself. He is kind and patient with Shelby. Their moments together are romantic and funny. I loved their banters and the twists at the end. Definitely didn’t see them coming. What helps the book as well is the dual POV between the characters as we get to understand the decisions that they make along the way. All in all, the storyline was on point and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a swoon worthy read. ;)

My Rating:


{EXCERPT}

Shelby shut the door with a click and peered over at me. “What are you writing? If it’s permission to use the feather duster as a sex toy, the answer is no. Unless you buy your own, but if you haven’t figured out where the laundry room is yet, I doubt you’ll find where to buy one.”

She was as funny as a car crash, this one.

“Hilarious,” I drawled. “No, I’m making amendments as I go. I added a new rule.”

“You added a new rule?” She raised one dark eyebrow and walked over, hovering over me. “All right, what is it?”

“Decent clothes must be worn. Do you know how many times I wake up early on a morning to open the gym and find you basically in your underwear in the kitchen?”

“Basically in my underwear? Who are you seeing in the kitchen? I wear shorts and a tank top at the very least.”

“Yes, but the shorts barely cover your ass, and you’re sure as hell not wearing a bra.”

She paused, eyes glittering as she said, “And why are you looking at my ass and my boobs?”

That was an excellent question.

“Because there’s nowhere else to look!” I rushed out before my stupid cock could get any ideas. “Look, waking up in the morning can be challenging for a guy.”

She stared at me.

“I don’t need to get up for a coffee with… you know.” I motioned to my groin. “And see you half-clothed.”

She flicked her hair over her shoulder and walked to the kitchen, turning her back to me. “Why does it matter? I’m your best friend. I hardly think your little friend is remotely interested in whether or not I’m wearing a bra.”

Yeah, well, he is.

“Fine. If I have to wake up and see your perky nipples prancing around the kitchen, I’m going to stroll around in my underwear so you can get a good view of my morning glory.”

She spun, lifting up a finger. Her cheeks were flushed, and she had to swallow before she could speak. “My nipples do not prance. They are not horses.”

I grinned.

“Also, I have no desire to have anything to do with your morning erection, much less get a good view of it, thank you very much.”

“Have I told you that you’re cute when you blush?”

“Have I told you that you’d be a cute dead guy?”

I laughed, leaning back on the sofa. “C’mon, Shelbs. We need to respect each other’s privacy. You don’t want to see my cock hard over your breakfast, and I don’t want to see your nipples standing to attention when I make a coffee.”

She sighed. “Why did I ever let you move in again?”

“Because I was going to be homeless and you’re the best friend ever?”

“Mm.”
