Rebel Roommate; Falling for the Stars #3
(A standalone within a series)
Publication Date: January 20, 2021
Genre: Contemporary/Brother’s best friend/Roommate/Sports romance
Loved, loved, loved this new book in the Zodiac themed series. It was full of melty moments and good hearted fun that this writing duo has perfected.
Stacey and Wes jump off the page with their chemistry from the very beginning. Their history of growing up together, even though Wes was her brother’s best friend, you could tell that Stacey and Wes shared a history together, one where their teasing and name calling tangled them into a relationship that could be messy, but also would be passionate once they gave into their desires.
While Wes and Stacey were wicked with their back and forth banter, they were even more so with their steamy passion. While Wes struggles between wanting Stacey and keeping his lifelong friendship with Chad in tact, their passion brews and bubbles, but kept in secret as neither want to upset the balance in the relationship with Stacey’s brother.
Each book in this series is completely unique. The only similar features are keeping to the astronomical theme, which sets up what traits the hero will have and what has become my favorite part the chapter where the book is told from his POV. As the entire book is mainly told from the heroines POV, there is always a tipping point where we receive insight from the hero and in Rebel Roommate, Wes completely broke my heart. He feels he’s broken beyond repair and in his musings I wanted to wrap that man up in a giant hug.
Jeannine and Lauren have perfected their craft as a writing duo and Rebel Roommate is not only steamy, but packed full of emotions, and excellent banter. It was a true pleasure to read.
Growing up, I had one rule: stay away from my brother’s best friend.
It was easy to follow. I spent my years avoiding the boys on the baseball team, studying hard, and saving every dime I could. When I was accepted to transfer into UC Berkeley, I needed a place to live, and my brother had a free room off-campus.
Win-win, right? Except that best friend I was determined to stay away from is now my new roommate.
My very naughty, very rebellious roommate, Wesley Knight.
The boy who was once the bane of my existence with his constant teasing is now a drop-dead gorgeous athlete. He’s the life of the party, but I can’t have fun. According to Wes, no guys are allowed to talk to me.
Well, two can play at this game. If I can’t date, then neither can he.
It starts off as innocent fun. Some half-naked yoga or a little flirting until an interrupted moment of self-gratification turns things dangerous … for my body and my heart.
Living with my brother and his best friend has me breaking all the rules. I just have to decide if the consequences are worth the reward.
𝐑𝐞𝐛𝐞𝐥 𝐑𝐨𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐞 is coming for you on January 20th! This is a brother’s best friend/roommate/sports romance, stand alone.
