Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
If you’ve read the other books in Charity Ferrell’s Just Series, Sierra is the little sister of Kyle from Just Friends. While some of the other books have dealt with more serious topics (miscarriage, loss, etc.), Just Roommates is a much more light-hearted read.
Sierra has always had a crush on local bartender Maliki, the Blue Beech bachelor. Even though he constantly kicks her out of his bar, the two eventually strike up a friendship. As time goes on, Maliki begins to grow attracted to her, but he’s a perpetual bachelor who doesn’t do commitments, and Sierra wants marriage and a relationship. Oh, and despite the flirting, she’s got a boyfriend.
After years spent in the friend zone, they remain best friends until the day that Sierra’s three-month-old marriage goes bust and Maliki offers her his extra bedroom. And then everything changes. Now that she’s no longer involved, will Maliki make a move? Could she be the one who makes him want to be in a relationship? Will they remain just roommates?
This was a slow-burn, scorching story full of laugh-out-loud moments. Even though he doubted his ability to be a boyfriend, Maliki is a pretty perfect one by the end. Just Roommates is a fantastic addition to the Blue Beech series.
