“Rosie Danan’s The Roommate is seriously sexy, seriously smart.”—Helen Hoang, USA Today bestselling author
“Genuinely swoonily romantic.”—Rachel Hawkins, New York Times bestselling author
“What an incredible debut! Danan gives us strangers to annoyed-roommates to kinda-friends to angsty-pining to finally-lovers with humor, wit, and just a hint of pathos. Josh and Clara are easily my favorite ‘smash the patriarchy’ couple, and The Roommate is easily one of my top romance reads of 2020!”—Jen DeLuca, author of Well Met
"Rosie Danan not only created characters who you'll think about long after you're finished reading, but she wrote a powerful, feminist book, that makes you laugh as hard as you cheer. The Roommate is sunshine in the form of a book. I can't wait to see what Danan brings us next!"—Alexa Martin, author of Snapped

PS if you haven't read the sample yet, that opening sentence:
"When the man of her dreams ran a hand across his devastatingly handsome face and said, 'I have to tell you something, and I don't want you to freak out,' Clara Wheaton considered, for the first time, the alarming possibility that she could get dumped by someone she'd never managed to date."

Thank you to the publisher for a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review.

The writing is funny and witty and at times emotionally devastating. Not only is the book about falling in love with someone else, but learning to love yourself, flaws and all. I can't wait to read more from this author. It's an amazing debut and I don't even know her, but I'm so proud of her! I love this book so much!
Clara is a rich girl from New York who seems to have it all, except the love of her life. She has always been prim and proper and done what her family has asked, but when her lifelong crush calls and asks her to move out to California with him she packs up and goes. Only one issue, she gets there and Everett, her crush, lets her know he is going on tour with his band. She will still be living at his place, but with Josh a guy Everett found on craigslist. Clara doesn’t want to run back home to her family and feel like a failure so she toughens it out and actually likes nice guy Josh. Except she finds out what Josh does for a living; he is a porn star. Not just any porn star, he has a different approach with women and wants them to have their needs met on and off the camera.
Needless to say, this was a fun and such a unique rom-com. I loved Clara and how shy and innocent she was. When she finds out Josh is a porn star is actually hilarious and with Josh being so confident with his body and sex, it just made the atmosphere so funny and steamy. I obviously enjoyed the romance, but I loved the plot in this book as well. Clara is finally on her own and gets to decide what she actually wants to do with her life, and Josh is being underpaid and wants better than what he is getting. When the two pair up and want to accomplish bringing down the sleazy bosses of the porn industry I was digging it.
While I wish Josh and Clara could have had some more love connection parts, I still enjoyed every minute of this book. I just felt like so much of it was sexy and steamy that I didn’t feel the slow burn love as much as I usually do in a rom-com. I loved the witty banter and just the outright really funny parts that made me giggle. I can’t wait to read more of this author in the future, because if the books are anything like this one, they will be complete 5/5 stars from me.
