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?

5 reasons to read Roomies

  • Normally I’m not a huge fan of marriages of convenience, but this one pulled me in.
  • Holland and Calvin are adorable together. I loved seeing them interact.
  • I loved how much this book centered around theatre and music. Two of my favorite things.
  • Watching two people fall in love after getting married was enlightening.
  • Both Holland and Calvin both grew so much by the end of the book. There are ups and downs and I admired how they handled them.

Overall, this is the perfect book to curl up on the couch with. It will give you warm fuzzies and really root for Holland. She was probably my favorite character.
