Sarah Adams, I love you. You always know how to put your readers in a good mood!

The Synopsis:

“What happens when you have to play nice with your greatest enemy? Revenge.

Drew Marshall may have let me move into his spare bedroom while my house is being renovated, but don’t think for one second his kindness comes without strings. Big, ugly, fake relationship strings. 

That’s okay, though, Dr. Andrew. I’ll agree to your terms, move into your house, and act like your girlfriend when the big day comes; but I also plan to make your life miserable—make you pay for what you did to me. 

I may not be good at forgiving or forgetting, but I’m excellent at getting even.

Get ready to laugh until you cry with this sizzling, hilarious, closed-door romantic comedy!”

A fresh round of gasps is released around the table, and I finally look up into Jessie’s eyes. Hers are locked on mine, and she looks as if she’s trying to not die of laughter. I consider telling her to go right ahead, and I’ll get to work on her grave.

My Review

I dub Sarah Adams queen of romcoms.

I don’t get how The Temporary Roomie gets quite a lot of negative reviews on Goodreads. Many people comment on how immature Drew and Jessie’s prank wars are and how Jessie is also pretty immature.

Personally, I loved the prank wars and I can relate to Jessie on so many levels. I completely understand going through some of the most unimaginable events throughout life and therefore realizing the importance of not always being so serious. Sometimes all you can do is be a little childish, and that’s okay!

This book caused me to laugh out loud so many times, and whenever that would happen my husband would ask why I was laughing. I feel like I practically read the entire book to him because I felt like I just needed to tell someone what was going on.

I appreciated Jessie’s relationship with her grandfather (she calls him Granddaddy). I was very close with my Papa before he passed away. I even lived with him for a bit! There are few things more precious and special than a close relationship with a grandparent.
