The American Roommate Experiment

Rosie Graham’s world is crumbling—literally—as her New York apartment ceiling caves in. She also just quit her job to secretly pen her second romance novel, keeping it a secret from her family. However, it’s about to get even more real, as her writer’s block is a force to be reckoned with. Fortunately, she has a saving grace for at least one problem since her best friend Lina gave her a spare key to her apartment while she’s on her honeymoon. What Lina failed to mention was that her extremely handsome and single cousin Lucas would be in town from Spain and also staying in her apartment. Rosie is all too familiar with Lucas, having stalked him online for months. To cure her writer’s block, Rosie comes up with the idea to date Lucas as an experiment, thus using him as her muse. This friends-to-lovers trope will have readers rooting for the couple as things turn steamy.
VERDICT Though it’s a follow-up to The Spanish Love Deception, Armas’s contemporary romance can be read as a stand-alone; perfect for readers who love Emily Henry and Tessa Bailey.
