Predictable
Roommates - Skye Faun Roommates - Skye Faun

Roommates is sweet story with likable characters and some chuckles throughout. The angst is pretty low and the pacing is good. The drawback was that there was nothing to set it apart from other college roommate romances, which made it predictable and a little too reminiscent of other books that I've read. Tim and Byron are roommates. Tim is attracted to Byron but can't act on it because Byron is straight. Turns out Byron is maybe not so straight. I'm sure you can figure the rest out from there. I did

Release Blitz - The House Mate

AN_banner_WEB

 

      house mate_amazon

What’s sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who’s got his shit together.

 

Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company, and he’s conquered the professional world, but he’s never been lucky in love. Focusing so much time on his business and raising his daughter, adulting has come at the expense of his personal life.

 

His social skills are shit, his patience is shot, and at times, his temper runs hot.

 

The last thing he has time for is the recently single, too gorgeous for her own good young woman he hires to take care of his little girl. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and besides, there’s no way she’d be interested. But you know what they say about assumptions?

 

 

This is book 3 in the Roommates series, but each book can be read as a complete standalone as they all feature new couples to fall in love with.

Visual novel time

[Not strictly a book post, but these things tend to be more story than game, so I kind of think they count.]

 

I seem to be on a visual novel kick at the moment. If you're not sure what those are, many of them are basically choose-your-own-adventure style stories in video game format. A lot of them are romances, although they don't necessarily have to be. Most of the ones in my collection are, though.

 

The one I spent a good chunk of my weekend on (received via a Humble Bundle):

 

 

I plan on writing a full review once I've gotten through more of the routes (or all of them? we'll see how long my attention span lasts). This one's basically a college story, with classes, part-time work, other activities (a Halloween party with a mystery theme, for example), friendships, and the chance for romance. And hey, in addition to the usual heterosexual options, you can have a female protagonist dating a woman (who's pansexual) or a male protagonist dating a guy (who's bisexual).

 

So far I've played Anne (the girl with the braids) and have managed the "meh," "good," and "best" routes for Dominic (the blond guy). I'm still debating which route to try next. Dominic's took about 6 hours total, but now that I've properly figured out the game mechanics (stat-building *shudder*) I should be able to finish others faster.

 

After Roommates I'd like to try Backstage Pass, which supposedly has an asexual character as a romantic option. And maybe I'll finally finish up Hatoful Boyfriend, the post-apocalyptic pigeon-dating one.

The Room Mate
The Room Mate (Roommates Book 1) - Kendall Ryan

Delightful and fun. Younger man with a slightly older woman that was done well.

Wasted Words by Staci Hart Review

 

Some universal truths refuse to be ignored.

Peanut butter and jelly are a match made in heaven. Spaghetti and meatballs are best friends forever. And guys like Tyler Knight don’t go for girls like Cam Emerson.

She knew from the second she met him that he didn’t belong on her bookshelf, the six-foot-six ex-tight end with a face so all-American, it could have sold apple pie. So she shelved him next to the supermodels and rock stars and took her place on her own shelf — the one with the flannel-clad, pasty-faced comic book nerds. Most of her boyfriends have existed between the pages of books, but rather than worrying over her own lacking love life, she puts all her energy into playing Cupid, using her job at the book bar, Wasted Words, as her stomping ground.

Tyler Knight always looks on the bright side. His career-ending injury turned into a job as a sports agent. A horrible breakup led him to Cam, his quirky, smart roommate who is far more beautiful than she realizes. She’s made it perfectly clear she’s not interested in him — not like that at least — but if she ever changes her mind, he won’t hesitate. Because he doesn’t see the lines she’s drawn between them, as much as she insists that they’re there. Deep down he knows that despite their differences, they’re a match well made.

Review

 

 

I loved the setting of this book in a bookstore/bar/comic shop. Heaven.

 

The literary reference were a great deal of fun as well. The hero was a sweetheart and while I adore roommate and opposites attracts themes this one did not work for me.

 

I am okay with the heroine being hurt by a past experience and I actually rather like that she was the jerk in this book and needed to check herself. But, it was a one trick pony in terms of character development. All of her development seems to stem from this one thing. We were told more about how great she was as well than seen it. I ended up not liking her because the issue lingered to long. I would have just liked to seen them in a relationship. I didn't see her grow as a character and get to spend anytime with the better her.

 

I because one million times more interested in the secondary romance which happened off stage.

 

This book also had a romance interferer which I don't love as a plot device and he was too flat a character as well.

 

I might pick up another book by this writer because there was something fun here.
