Description

'Laugh-out-loud funny, bananas sexy, and deeply romantic' Andie J. Christopher

'This book IS PURE JOY' Christina Lauren

Clara Wheaton is the consummate good girl: over-achieving, well-mannered, utterly predictable. When her childhood crush invites her to move across the country, the offer is too good to resist. Unfortunately, it's also too good to be true.

Suddenly, Clara finds herself sharing a house with a charming stranger. Josh might be a bit too perceptive - not to mention handsome - for comfort, but there's a good chance he and Clara could have survived sharing a summer sublet if she hadn't looked him up on the internet . . .

Once she learns how Josh has made a name for himself, Clara realises living with him might destroy the reputation she's spent years building. But while they may not agree on much, both Josh and Clara believe women deserve better sex. What they decide to do about it will change both of their lives, and if they're lucky, they'll help everyone else get lucky too.

Review quote

What an incredible debut! Danan gives us strangers to annoyed-roommates to kinda-friends to angsty-pining to finally-lovers with humour, wit, and just a hint of pathos. Josh and Clara are easily my favourite 'smash the patriarchy' couple, and The Roommate is easily one of my top romance reads of 2020! The Roommate is laugh-out-loud funny, bananas sexy, and deeply romantic. Danan's voice is fresh and sharp, and the romance between Clara and Josh is both sizzling hot and heartwarming. Everything I want in a romance Nuanced, funny, super steamy and surprisingly tender, The Roommate raises the bar for rom coms in 2020 - a smashing debut, and I can't wait for more by Rosie Danan! The Roommate is unapologetically sexy as hell. Danan's writing, like her characters, is funny, seductive, and full of heart. You're gonna love this book -- Meryl Wilsner, author of Something to Talk About This book is GOLD * Frolic * 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 The Roommate is both hilarious and earnest, with off-the-charts tension and a sparkling, vibrant voice. Clara and Josh captured my heart from their first interaction. I loved every word of this steamy, empowering romance -- Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of Today, Tonight, Tomorrow The Roommate is a book about people expanding into their best possible selves - about embracing pleasure, loving unabashedly and fighting exploitation and small-mindedness.

This delectable rom-com is both red-hot and fiercely feminist * Publishers Weekly (starred review) * One of the steamiest romances of the year.

Feminist, irreverent, sexy, surprising.
