Finding a good roommate through a classified ad isn’t as easy as it sounds.


I was starting to lose hope.
Until a knock at my door came and God answered my prayers.
Except…uh…wrong prayer, God.
I’d definitely requested the big guy find me a drop-dead gorgeous man on more than one occasion…just not as my roommate.
Declan Tate talked me into interviewing him anyway.
While he was amusing and charismatic, I wouldn’t have been comfortable living with a man, so I regretfully declined.
Then cupcakes showed up at my door—freshly baked by Declan and just as sinfully delicious as he was.
You could say he was persistent.
I eventually folded. It wasn’t like I had another viable candidate anyway.
Plus, I was interested in someone else. And Declan was into another woman. So it wasn’t like anything would happen romantically.
After he moved in, the two of us became the best of friends. We even started to give each other advice on getting our crushes to notice us.
Eventually, Declan concocted an idea: we should pretend to be a couple to make our love interests jealous.
I was hesitant, but went along with it anyway. To my utter shock, his crazy plan worked.
Now I was dating the supposed man of my dreams, and my best friend had the woman of his.
But there was one problem.
I couldn’t stop thinking about Declan.
Those feelings we were trying to fake?
Yeah…I wasn’t pretending anymore.


OMG. Declan and Molly are the cutest. Molly is looking for a female roommate. After several shady interviews Molly was losing hope until Declan showed up at her front door. He got everything Molly ever wants except the wrong body part  – good looks, charming, polite, good baker  LOL after mysterious cupcakes started showing up at Molly’s front door, she finally gave in and agreed for Declan to move in. Molly is interested in a doctor she works with, and Declan is also crushing on a co-worker. Besides, Declan is only looking for temporary residence until his work assignment is over. What could go wrong, right?
Vi and Penelope knocked this friends-to-lovers out of the park. So stinking cute, undeniable chemistry, awesome banters, slow-burn, delicious sexy romance. Declan is total hotness, charming, fun, and caring. Molly is adorable. I did not expect the emotional part though, but that’s what made the storyline extra special. This book got all the feels. Devoured in one sitting ❤
