The Wheatons are infamous among the east coast elite for their lack of impulse control, except for their daughter Clara. She’s the consummate socialite: over-achieving, well-mannered, predictable. But every Wheaton has their weakness. When Clara’s childhood crush invites her to move cross-country, the offer is too tempting to resist. Unfortunately, it’s also too good to be true.
After a bait-and-switch, Clara finds herself sharing a lease with a charming stranger. Josh might be a bit too perceptive—not to mention handsome—for comfort, but there’s a good chance he and Clara could have survived sharing a summer sublet if she hadn’t looked him up on the Internet...
Once she learns how Josh has made a name for himself, Clara realizes living with him might make her the Wheaton’s most scandalous story yet. His professional prowess inspires her to take tackling the stigma against female desire into her own hands. They may not agree on much, but Josh and Clara both believe women deserve better sex. What they decide to do about it will change both of their lives, and if they’re lucky, they’ll help everyone else get lucky too.

Great reasI loved this book! Hot sex scenes, funny characters, real feelings, and so worth your time!.Score: 5/5
Save your money!I don’t normally leave reviews, especially bad ones, but this was a chore to get even halfway through, I kept hoping for the main character to become even slightly more like able or relatable, but she stayed pretty consistently horrible. The blushing socialite that’s perfectly slender and lovely and mentions her family name every other sentence, I couldn’t roll my eyes hard enough. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good ol sappy romance, but it’s like she threw every cliche at this thing, slapped a pink cover on it and called it a day. And the biggest affront, it’s TEN freaking dollars! I’ve read better quality free books..Score: 1/5

Funny and swoonyThe Roommate by Rosie Danan deserves all the hype. It's one of my favorite romances I've read this year. It's funny, swoony, and extremely sex-positive. It doesn't villainize sex-workers. Clara Wheaton, East Coast trust fund baby from a conservative family, moves to LA, after an invitation from her long time friend and childhood crush, Everrett. She hopes they finally can take their relationship to the next level. Once she arrives in LA, Clara finds out that Everett doesn't plan to stick around in the City of Angels, and she ends up sharing a house with Josh, who is subletting a room from Everett, and who happens to be a famous adult performer (a.k.a a porn star). Sparks fly between Clara and Josh, but they are total opposites. Josh is sex on legs, and Clara has never experienced an orgasm with a man. Not to mention, Clara's scandal-averse family will never accept Josh, and Clara is not planning to disappoint her mother or embarrass her family name. I loved this book, and I adored Clara and Josh together. Also, it was interesting to learn about the adult entertainment industry, with its problems, and the stigma attached to it. I highly recommend this book, especially to those who love opposites attract trope and fans of The Kiss Quotient. *ARC provided by the puplisher via Edelweiss..Score: 5/5
I’ll take 2I’m inquiring on how I obtain my own personal Josh? Do I have to order him or ...? But seriously, a great feel good book that had my blushing & laughing the whole way..Score: 5/5
Not my cup of tea.I wish the sample would’ve included the fact that Josh was a porn star. It would’ve saved me $10 bucks. Sorry but I just couldn’t get past that..Score: 2/5
UnexpectedNot sure where to start. I guess I’ll start by saying I downed this in one sitting and downed it because I was consumed. It wasn’t damsel in distress but a strong women figuring out what she wants with an equal for a parter. While showcasing that sex is great, normal, and has never been female focused and that has to change. I was turned on, I was anxious, surprised, happy, and my heart ached at times. Best book I’ve read in a while..Score: 5/5
