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 would not 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’re got nothing in common . . . except for one thing. 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.
Nicole Williams is the New York Times and USATODAY bestselling author of contemporary and young adult romance, including the Crash and Lost & Found series. Her books have been published by HarperTeen and Simon & Schuster in both domestic and foreign markets, while she continues to self-publish additional titles. She is working on a new YA series with Crown Books (a division of Random House) as well. She loves romance, from the sweet to the steamy, and writes stories about characters in search of their happily even after. She grew up surrounded by books and plans on writing until the day she dies, even if it’s just for her own personal enjoyment. She still buys paperbacks because she’s all nostalgic like that, but her kindle never goes neglected for too long. When not writing, she spends her time with her husband and daughter, and whatever time’s left over she’s forced to fit too many hobbies into too little time.
Nicole is represented by Jane Dystel, of Dystel and Goderich Literary Agency.
It gives me a wonderful feeling to read a book and suddenly realize that I am at 64% into it without having even noticed it, that’s how good it is. I’ve loved every book written by this author, the great deal for me is this process of waiting something that I know for sure will fulfill my expectations beyond belief, every one of her characters are always so different from each other that I look forward to their new books just to feel the excitement and rewarding sensation that I felt with Roommates with Benefits. I do not know why this time I expected to find a hero like Jude Ryder, but it is perhaps his complete opposite, and nevertheless I’m completely in love with Soren!!! I had never read a character like him, never, he went directly to my heart and also to my list of eternal book boyfriend, absolutely handsome, intelligent, tireless worker, chasing ceaselessly for his dream, focus and always with his feet well planted on the ground, he is young but wise in a way, we should have many more guys like Soren in real life, we need them.
Hayden is fabulous in every way, this is a book that would recommend to a daughter or niece so they can identify with a character like that, within her innocence she is completely strong, capable, is someone loyal and a real fighter, she’s always growing and developing through it all, that is inspiring. I can not remember just one favorite part because this reading had me from start to end with a permanent smile on my face and the best part is that I was not expecting many of the things that happened. I highly recommend it, it is about difficult beginnings, loyalty, ties, love, will, values and a good people finding their ways.
Never judge a book by it’s movie.
Books and films, I love them both, but when i see a movie about a book… let’s face it, the film never got a chance, so i decided to open this space to share with you opinions, information and comments, books that should be movies, movies that ruined the book, books that shouldn’t be movies, good movies, good books, and everything about it.
