My Thoughts: Wholesome Head Case Meets Secretly Kindhearted Manwhore Jock
The fact Erin Leigh (Tara Brown) was able to put two opposites together and yet have them each be still down to earth so that readers can love with them is a testament to how great of a writer she is! The characters are a great combo of witty and sexy, leaving you laughing one minute and swooning the next.
Deciding to move out on her own, twenty two year old, Natalie 'Nat' Banks, can't wait to begin her new job and life away from her overprotective parents. After settling in she finds that the roommate she was setup to have via her best friend Sami isn't actually a girl named BJ, but is a rising hockey player named Brady "BJ" Coldwell. Now Brady too is shocked to find his roommate is not a nerdy tech guy, but is a hot woman he knows would be a bad idea to hook up with. The problem for Brady is the more he gets to know Nat the more he finds he likes her and not just in a quickie sort of way. The attraction for both of them is obvious but their living situation makes them think things through. Especially when Brady is known for being a manwhore no dating kind of guy and Nat is dating her on and off again very wealthy boyfriend her mother insist is her future husband. With all of Nat and Brady's baggage, they realize if they start something their statuses as of roommate may not last.
Overall, Loved It! Ugh Erin Leigh seriously too funny! I absolutely LOVE Nat she is like my heroine, she owned her life and made it what she wanted despite all the crap that came, including the fact she can't cook (which is totally me, I'm the one who over boils water). Sami and Nat's friendship is to die for, the way they act is basically me and my friends minus the drinks and cash, cause we broke. Anyways, Brady too is a hot catch the way Erin wrote him, he's a passionate athlete, who can cook and bake, score ladies right there! Now as for Brady and Nat, they were just too cute and sexy as a couple, and their relationship progressed in a really comfortable way. Which made me happy because I feared we'd have that whole drama just for the sake of drama towards the end for that dramatic breakup-ish moment, but instead the end was completed in a nice way, I want more not gonna lie. Truthfully, I want a Sami and Matt book now, it'd definitely give readers a chance to see more of Brady and Nat in the future. So if you are into stories where a girl is just herself working and living life and happens to share an apartment with a hot guy that she nabs despite himself not wanting to be nabbed, than this book is totally worth a read.
Erin Leigh is the romantic,
safe side of the dark mind inside of international bestselling author,
Erin is a hot fudge sundae and warm blanket on movie night sort of girl. She likes horses and
thinks she should have some, but hates the smell of horse poo. In fact she doesn't imagine having
a small farm would be very easy.
She likes gentlemen and courtesy and old traditions.
She likes to see people grow, become something worthy of the person they love.
She wants to be a writer like Jane Austen and Henry James.
She wants to write pretty prose and lure you down the path covered in rose petals.
Because at the end of the path is Tara Brown and she doesn't like rose petals or easy love. Down
that path the wind picks up and the petals blow away and the forest gets eerie.
As a result this is not your grandma's romance.
It's the best Tara Brown could do with what she has, a dark heart.
