Book Review- Roommates With Benefits by Nicole Williams

Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance
Heat Level: Moderate
Single POV: Heroine

Soren Decker. He’s the epitome of the “bad boy, good man” persona. The best of both worlds. The worst of them too. He’s the type of guy most girls wouldn’t mind sharing a confined space with, except my new roommate isn’t all swagger and chiseled abs. 

He’s bossy. Messy. Cocky. Infuriating. Doesn’t believe in personal space. Has no qualms about roaming the apartment with a loincloth-sized towel cinched around his waist. Seems under the delusion he’s my personal protector (refer back to infuriating). He plays college baseball and holds down a part-time job—I don’t know where he finds the time to get on my nerves. 

We have nothing in common . . . except our attraction to one another. And in six hundred square feet of shared space, the tension only has so much room to grow before one of us gives in to temptation. But really, what chance do a couple of young kids chasing their dreams in the big city have of making it? 

Since Soren claims I know squat about sports (he might have a semi-point), here’s a stat for him—one in a million. That’s our odds.

♦♦♦ My Thoughts ♦♦♦

This book was such a great surprise! I expected it to be a fun and sexy read and that absolutely held true! However, what I didn’t expect was the depth of emotions I went through reading this story.

Soren was sooo SWOON worthy! I absolutely loved him. At first, he and Hayden had a rocky start. Soren was a slob to live with. He was also very cocky and goading Hayden any chance he could get. But then we realize he is also this sweet man who adores his mom and goes out of his way to take care of Hayden even before they become a couple.

The sexual tension in this book was off the charts. Their chemistry was so great. Even after these two finally admit their attraction to each other, they have several obstacles in their path that try to keep them apart. It came down the Hayden’s inability to trust men that really tries to tear them apart. This story became so much more than a light, fun read for me here. The characters had so many layers and their journey to find their HEA was both fun and amazing.
