Review of The Roommate Risk by Talia Hibbert (ebook)


 

The Roommate Risk by Talia Hibbert

 

From New York Times bestselling author Talia Hibbert comes an electric, domestic, roommates-to-lovers romance between a whirlwind party girl and her uptight best friend…

Jasmine Allen believes in bad luck, great wine, and the seductive power of a stiletto heel. What she doesn’t believe in is love. Her life is perfect without all that romance rubbish—until a plumbing disaster screws everything up and leaves Jas homeless. Luckily, she has someone to turn to: her best friend Rahul.

For seven years, Rahul Khan has followed three simple rules.
* Don’t touch Jasmine if you can help it.
* Don’t look at her arse in that skirt.
* And don’t ever—ever—tell her you love her.

He should’ve added another rule: Do not, under any circumstances, let Jas move into your house.

Now Rahul is living with the friend he can’t have, and it’s decimating his control. He knows their shared dinners aren’t dates, their late-night kisses are a mistake, and the tenderness in Jasmine’s gaze is only temporary. One wrong word could send his skittish best friend running.

So why is he tempted to risk it all?

This book was previously published as Wanna Bet?. The Roommate Risk is a steamy, standalone, diverse romance. This book is 75,000 words of fluff, angst, and extreme pleasure, with NO cliffhangers, NO cheating, and a guaranteed HEA. Please be aware: this story contains themes of parental neglect and abandonment, parental death, and alcohol dependence that could trigger certain audiences.

 

review

 

I mostly enjoyed this one, but it wasn’t a favorite for romance.

I did like Rahul quite a bit. His love for Jasmine over the years was sweet and I thought it was great that he could somewhat keep that separate from the friendship that meant so much to both of them. Jasmine was a bit harder to like. I did get it though. Her mom left and it definitely messed her up. If her mom couldn’t love her enough to stick around, she thought no one could really love her. Except her dad. She definitely kept even her friends at a distance most of the time. I did appreciate how much Rahul understood her and tried so hard not to push. He even handled all her freak outs well.

I gave this book 4 stars.
