I think going forward in my life, when I find myself staying someplace, I will always ask for room 212!
Laura (goodness, I love that name) is a young adult at 21 who is doing everything in her power to avoid being the next 'barbie wife'. She is carefree, working at a bar and having a good time until that one day...
Seth, what can I say? I'd do him in a heartbeat. When he's good, he is so good. When he's bad, he is so bad. There are times when yes, I wanted to take my slipper off and whoop him upside the head. But what man doesnt do that to a woman?
This is a journey that spans over 14 years. There are good days, there are bad days. Will Laura and Seth get the happiness they both deserve? Or will the Lone Star state of Texas take the bull by the horns and hold him hostage?
Absolutely enjoyed reading this one. I particularly loved it because I've now seen the growth that this author has gained in her recently published books. What one might think was good with this book will only appreciate the greatness that this author has become in her writing skills.
Laura and Seth's story starts all the way back in 1997. Back when people carried around pagers and had landline telephones. The book spans 15+ years and tells a story of first love, happiness, heartache, and oh so much more. I laughed with them, cried with them, and also reminisced about mine and my wife's story that is so similar to that of Laura and Seth's that it was almost eerie. I loved every word on every page. It's going to be hard to move on from Room 212, but it was totally worth the book hangover it gave me.
“You know Laura Lynn, our God is a jealous God, you love something more than him he is bound to take it away.”
At twenty one Laura met the love of her life. After having broken up with her boyfriend and temporarily resting in a park, she's hit in the face with a frisbee. Seth is at first turned off by Laura's bad attitude, but when the two randomly meet again later that night, they see another side of each other and form a connection.
After months of dating despite their differences (Laura being a wild girl and a bit of a partier, Seth being more conservative and a hard worker) the two are in love and going strong. But Seth's past continues to haunt their present relationship and the two find themselves at odds on where their life path leads them.
“I’m a firm believer that if you want something, you have to make it happen. The world owes you nothing, but you can take your piece of it. All you have to do is work hard and claim it.”
This book was the perfect angst hit for all of you angst lovers out there like me. I loved Laura and Seth's story, I honestly could feel their love for each other, it was a very powerful romance. Seth and Laura worked well together despite their differences and worked hard on lowering their defenses around each other. I loved the first part of this book to about 70/75%, while the last 25% or so didn't flow as well for my tastes.
Laura was my favorite part about this book, I love imperfect heroines and she felt like a real person to me. She didn't want to spend her life spewing out falsities so she did what she wanted. Small warning, Laura did some recreational drug use but it honestly didn't bother me all too much because well, that's life and people use drugs. Reality of our world and all.
The only thing preventing me from giving this book a full 5 stars is the whole not enough groveling thing I'm always getting on about. Seth messes up big time in my opinion and he honestly didn't grovel as much as I'd like. I also didn't understand a lot of his reasoning and decisions for the things he did, maybe because I didn't have his perspective. Laura I understood a lot more, but probably because I was able to see her side of things.
I read Loving the White Liar before this book and while I enjoyed that one, this one left a mark on my heart. For those of my friends who love angsty romance reads, I highly recommend this book. I think fans of RK Lilley will enjoy Kate Stewart's work very much.
"So there’s no hero for you?
"I am my own hero.”
Laura and Seth’s relationship is anything but easy. They are complete opposites but irrevocably drawn to one another. Room 212 is not an easy love story, but not all love is easy. Sometimes it’s a real b*.
Laura is a bit of a wild child, free spirit. Working as a bartender no real future plans – everything that Seth is not. But it doesn’t take long for these two to start falling in love. They fought. They loved. They fought again. It was not easy to love Seth. I fell in love with him just as easily as I hated him.
I am a sucker for hard relationships and second chance romances. There is just something sweeter about those who find love, lose it and fight to reclaim it. This story had it all.
All of it.
I loved the highs and the lows and everything in between. I felt like I needed to hide away for a month to recover from the experience of this book. I can’t get enough of this author. I don’t know if the sequel to this book is still in the works or being considered, but I’d love to see her brother’s story.
If you love angst and heartfelt romances, even if it punches you in the gut and makes you its b*, READ THIS.

A huge thank you to Kate Stewart for such an excellent story, with lovable characters that are just so easy to fall in love with.
I get so much pleasure from reading a good book especially when you want to give a book more than 5* and this little gem was definitely worthy of more than 5* maybe even 212 stars :) .
If you haven't read this why not ? It's the full package plus so much more and is well worth the money, I would have quite willingly paid more.
