Let your homeless best friend stay with you, he said. Being roommates will be fun, he said. It’s only temporary, he said.
He never said I’d fall for him.
Today we are thrilled to be on tour with The Roommate Agreement, an all-new hilarious and romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart
You know what isn’t ‘temporary?’ The endless stream of dirty socks in my bathroom and empty food packets under the sofa—and don’t even get me started on the hot guys who take over my living room every Sunday to watch sports.
I can’t take anymore.
So I propose a roommate agreement. One that will bring peace and order back to my life, complete with rules that might just stop my newfound crush on my best friend in its tracks.
After all, there’s only so many times you can see your best friend naked before you start to lose your mind.
Rules. They’re meant to be broken… Aren’t they?

Another romantic comedy offering by author Emma Hart never disappoints. This light-hearted story between best friends is what it says on the tin: no angst, lots of laughs and quirky family members.
Shelby is a ghost-writer who aspires to publish her own book someday. She is that independent mid-twenties woman who marches to the beat of her own drums and is surrounded by great best friends and family. She is an introvert who has a lot of voices inside her head and thinks having a pizza with veggies on it is a balanced meal! She has been best friends with Jay since they were young kids but when she helped saved him from being “homeless” and moved in with her, the dynamics of their friendship shifted.
Jay manages a gym owned by his father. He has been best friends with Shelby since they were eight years old. A health-conscious freak, he is not bad looking either and is quite a good catch. His moving in with Shelby made him aware of how “crazy” she is but she’s his best friend and even though they drive each other mad sometimes they have that deep bond between them.
This friends-to-lovers romance is cute and sweet it will give you goosebumps and a sugar high. Shelby and Jay’s long-lasting friendship shifted when he moved in with her. What I like about Shelby is her snarky comments, her sass and her devil-may-care attitude. She might be an introvert but she is also confident. Jay is almost the perfect package, responsible, loyal and has abs for days, just ignore his bad habit of leaving his socks all over the place. Oh well, nobody’s perfect.
Their slow-burn romance sets the right pace for this story. Their attraction to each other gradually develops when Jay moved in and I loved that they actually talked about the consequences if they cross that line. Actually, Shelby’s habit of over thinking can be annoying but that is expected of her persona. I love the secondary characters and their hilarious antics, but I also love how strong the family and friends dynamics are. It makes this book a more entertaining read altogether. A great choice for a lazy afternoon I can highly recommend.
