It’s not every day you wake up to a stranger getting into your bed.
Only, he isn’t a stranger at all, he’s my best friend’s hot older brother…and apparently my new roommate.
Having him in my space, driving me crazy, isn’t a problem at all. Nope.
All I need to do is keep control of the situation…
But that’s easier said than done.
Shawn Lassiter is the kind of distraction I don’t need.
First he accidentally gets into my bed, half-naked, the night before my first day at my new job.
Hello, muscles and tattoos!
Then he’s there, in nothing but a towel, making me coffee in the morning.
It’s more than any girl can resist. Right?
But Shawn is off-limits, even if his eyes are saying differently.
Years ago, back when I still had my crush, he destroyed friendships with his reckless playboy antics.
There’s no way I’m touching those perfectly formed abs now. I don’t care how nice and responsible he’s acting.
I don’t want a boyfriend anyway. That’s what my trusty vibrator is for.
I’m the smart girl—the glasses-wearing, book-reading workaholic. I can totally do this.
After all, it’s only for two and a half months.
I’ll be on my best behavior…even if Shawn isn’t.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Wrong Bed, Right Roommate is a cute, low-angst best friend’s brother/roommate romance. Jessie has always had a crush on her best friend’s brother, Shawn — but back in high school, he was a major playboy, a major screwup, and straight-laced Jessie was the last girl he’d ever look at twice. On top of that, his rep more or less ruined most of his sister’s friendships aside from Jessie, so she remained fiercely loyal to her bestie.
Until she wakes up one morning, ten years or so later, to find an all-grown-up Shawn in her bed!
Of course, it’s a mistake: he’s crashing in his sister’s room while she’s out of town, and mistakes Jessie’s room for Talia’s. While the two are able to laugh it off at first, there is a wonderful simmering tension between them… and it doesn’t take long for them to explore their attraction.
Jessie and Shawn spend the summer doing couple-y things, but never have The Talk about what is going on between them. So when Talia unexpectedly comes home (the day of their most romantic and honest date yet!), things kind of explode. And not in a good way.
I really liked the connection between the characters. It was spicy and sweet, and I understood both good girl Jessie as well as Shawn’s struggles in proving he’s not a screw-up and wanting to get his ish together. I just wish they’d been honest with their feelings for one another. But I know, if they had, there wouldn’t have been The Conflict, The Breakup or The Makeup.
This was the first book I’ve read by Rebecca Brooks, and I was pleasantly surprised! I’d love to see Talia find a guy next! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx. Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind to try something new–and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn’t know they’d been missing.
