Review: Roommates by Erin Leigh

Publication: 10-24-2015
Series: Stand Alone
Rating: 4 Cherries


Life is full of expectations.
For Brady Coldwell it’s always been about the game.
Hockey is and always will be, his life.
His family sacrificed everything to get him here and he won’t let them down.
He knows what’s expected of him.
Natalie Banks is no different.
She too knows what it means to have everyone sacrifice for you.
She knows about the debt that’s left owing in the end and the price you pay for making up your own mind.
But when an innocent mistake lands them as roommates, neither of them is prepared for the feelings they have or the consequences of their actions.
How do you negotiate matters of the heart?
How do you say no when it simply feels so right?

This book is about an unlikely match turning out to be just the thing two very different people need.  Natalie or Nat for short is a digital designer for a small company, while Brady is a professional hockey player.  Their two world collide when a simple misunderstanding thrusts them together leaving them shaken not stirred.  Can these two learn to peacefully coexist or will the underlying tension between them send them up in flames.

I loved this story.  I have read so many other reviews that knock Brady for being a man whore but I just did't feel that way. While yes, he had his man whore ways at the beginning of the story he does redeem himself.  You learn through the story that he is just a sweet, fun loving guy that LOVES hockey.  Nat is not your typical girly girl which made me love her even more.  She gets the guy literally by being herself and what is better in a book heroine than that!  This story is a stand alone read with an HEA.  If you are jonesing for a hot hockey player and a little bit of a nerdy girl then you should give this story a try.
