Review: A Reluctant Roommate by Angela Casella

I don’t have the hots for my roommate… If I say it enough times, will I believe it?

Some people might say I’m allergic to change. They’d be right.

I’ve lived in the same house my entire life, worked at the same company since I graduated from college, and hung out with the same three friends since middle school. If you think that sounds boring, you’re in agreement with my new roommate—my sister’s best friend, Andrea Ruiz.

Andy has always been a ball buster, a hell raiser…and she’s also the sexiest woman I’ve ever met. I let her move in because she was down and needed a place to stay, but she’s taking a hammer to my carefully constructed life.

My grandmother’s always told me I’m too impulsive for my own good. Should’ve listened to her, I guess. I posted a few (very tame) videos of my feet on a platform known for its racy content, and suddenly found myself homeless and out of a job. But Drew took pity on me and gave me a place to live, and now the Fairy Godmother Agency, a husband and wife P.I. team who thrive on anarchy, is offering me a job.

Drew’s so solid and reliable. I know my chaos is driving him crazy, but there’s a part of me that likes driving him crazy. I want to crack his shell. Because in the brief moments when he lets himself relax his rules, he’s surprisingly irresistible.

This series is one of my favorites and I’ve loved every book so far. Andi and Drew had it tough because they followed my favorite couple of the series, Sinclair and Rafe, although I’ve loved them all. Andi and Marnie are BFFs so she’s known Drew forever. He’s sort of like a brother to her so when Andi needs a place to stay in a pinch and he’s got plenty of room, he’s her safety net. They’ve always gotten along well so being roomies shouldn’t be too bad, except things don’t go as planned.

Drew really regrets not locking the door and though Andi was shocked, she’s not entirely sorry to have walked in on him during a private moment. In fact, she really enjoys teasing him about it, much to his chagrin. I liked both characters from the earlier books and enjoyed watching them come together, even if it was a bit frustrating at times. They spent far too much time avoiding each other for my liking so I would have liked to see them interacting more but I really loved their story.

The usual cast was present and I enjoyed seeing the guys on their own, since Drew hangs out a lot with Rafe and Griffin. Nicole and Damien play an integral role in the story as always, so a few surprises are guaranteed. There are a lot of fun characters in this series but nobody shined more brightly for me than Reggie. Yes, you read that right and if you’re a fan of the series, then you’re asking yourself ‘what is wrong with her?’ but I promise, you will agree.

He’s full of astute observations and sage advice for Drew, who isn’t exactly receptive but can’t seem to avoid him. This book had me laughing out loud, mostly at Reggie, but everything about it is fun. I received an ARC from Literally Yours PR in exchange for an honest review.
