Series: Roommate Romps, #3
Release Date: April 8th, 2021
Nolan Brooks is off limits.
Sure, he’s insanely attractive and funny and I might have almost gone home with him one night to relieve a little stress.
It was all just a momentary lapse in judgment…just like the kiss we shared.
He’s my temporary roommate while I wait for my new apartment to be ready. That’s it.
He’s doesn’t do relationships, and he doesn’t do attachments.
So what if I have a crush on him? We’ll only be there for two months.
Surely I can survive that long.
Teagan Hunter’s Roommate Romps series gives me life! It started with Dean and River and then we got Caroline and Cooper and now we’re finally getting to Maya’s story. Right from the moment we met Maya in River’s book, I was ready for her to find love. And she finds it in the most unexpected of places, with who might be my favourite of the roommates in this series so far. I honestly didn’t think I could love a pairing more than Dean and River, but Maya and Nolan take that cake. They’re so much fun!
Maya finds herself at the end of her rope when her landlord sells the apartment building she lives in and gives her only so much time to find somewhere new. She’s applying to almost every building she can, but with so many people being evicted, it’s hard to find a spot. And she’s down on her luck and willing to make terrible decisions just to keep a roof over her head. Till Nolan Brooks walks into her life. Their first meeting is filled with flirting and innuendo, till they realise that they’re actually there to meet along with their two best friends. And in that one night, he goes from flirting with her and tempting Maya to go home with him to offering her and her son his three bedroom apartment.
Right from that first meeting, Maya and Nolan have incredible chemistry. If things hadn’t worked out the way they had, she would have definitely ended up in his bed anyway. But that doesn’t dim their attraction towards each other. Maya and Nolan have to fight every single day to not be drawn into each other’s orbit once she moves in, because it’s like their magnets, being sucked towards each other constantly. And good grief, when they finally take the step forward and to just enjoy themselves, it’s absolutely hot! But that’s something that all of the characters in this series have in common – incredibly hot and steamy chemistry.
As characters, I absolutely loved Maya. I’d fallen in love with her from the first book and that just escalated as the books went on. As a single mom, she always puts her son first, but she’s also so strong and loving and passionate and confident and caring. Maya is the kind of person I’d want as a friend, which explains why she’s friends with River and Caroline, even though both of them are in a league of their own. Nolan’s growth throughout the book was pretty great. He went from being broody to being a little warmer and watching him bond with Sam was really a highlight. As someone who wants nothing to do with kids, Nolan’s connection with Maya’s son was definitely a heartwarming sight to behold.
In true Teagan Hunter fashion, this book was hilarious and the banter won me over completely. I spent a lot of time giggling and when I wasn’t doing that, I was gasping at how steamy the two of them got. I can’t believe we’re almost at the end of the series, because I feel like I was just getting settled into this world, but I am definitely looking forward to the next one, because that sounds spicy!
Thanks to Teagan Hunter and Candi Kane PR for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
