Recommendation: The Roommate by Rosie Danan


If you like...a constant sexy smolder that undercurrents the story

If you like...breaking through the stigma around female desire

If you like...being left with the feeling that somehow you now have a crush on a book


I can't say enough good things about this book. Its swoon levels are off the charts. It is seriously steamy and sex positive. Josh is sweet, perceptive, and occasionally throws around the dictionary definition of damsel. Clara is buttoned up, over-achieving, and trying hard to get over her childhood crush. Their story is fresh, creative, and absolutely melted my heart.


Subgenre: Contemporary

Tropes: Roommates, Forced Proximity, Opposites Attract
