Cute Romance Story With Heart
4 out of 5 stars
I went into this one pretty blind, I saw the title and the cute cover and decided to go for it, I’m glad that I did because this book absolutely cracked me up. There were so many things in the earlier parts of the book that were super realistic but so darn funny. There was a scene where she was loading the dishwasher for the first time and without spoiling it, I’ve had a friend call me with a similar problem the first time she used a dishwasher.
Roommaid as a whole was a fun and cute story of learning to live on your own along with standing on your own two feet. Sure, it’s a love story at its heart, but it was so much more than that. Madison as a character was really likeable, even if there were scenes earlier in the story where she was shown in not-so-hot light. The things she did (standing up to her family, going at it alone, etc) were really brave and almost impossible to do (walk away from guaranteed money for unsure money).
Her family was extremely unlikeable, and that was done on purpose – her mother especially. There were a few scenes (towards the end of the book) that I was actually disgusted that someone would do that to their child (trying not to spoil anything). But, it made for a really great story and it made me like Madison even more.
Overall, a cute romance story with a lot of heart. One that I’m glad I picked up and one that had me cracking up a lot!
From bestselling author Sariah Wilson comes a charming romance about living your life one dream at a time.
Madison Huntington is determined to live her dreams. That means getting out from under her family’s wealth and influence by saying no to the family business, her allowance, and her home. But on a teacher’s salary, the real world comes as a rude awakening – especially when she wakes up every morning on a colleague’s couch. To get a place of her own (without cockroaches, mold, or crime scene tape), Madison accepts a position as a roommaid. In exchange for free room and board, all she needs to do is keep her busy roommate’s penthouse clean and his dog company. So what if she’s never washed a dish in her life. She can figure this out, right?
Madison is pretty confident she can fake it well enough that Tyler Roth will never know the difference. The finance whiz is rich and privileged and navigates the same social circles as her parents – but to him she’s just a teacher in need of an apartment. He’s everything Madison has run from, but his kindhearted nature, stomach-fluttering smile, and unexpected insecurities only make her want to get closer. And Tyler is warming to the move.
Rewarding job. Perfect guy. Great future. With everything so right, what could go wrong? Madison is about to find out.
