The Roommate ‘dis’Agreement


To put it simply, I loved it! Let me tell you all my reasons why...Cash, Cash, Cash, did I mention Cash?! In all seriousness I adore all the main characters in this story. Each one of them is relatable and real. I went on this funny journey with Jade when she decided to keep the boredom at bay by answering an ad, never expecting it to amount to anything. I felt for Cash and his experiences that led him to his current situation and need for companionship. I completely relate to the loneliness of one and the desperate need for stability of the other. The jokes, light hearted banter, and ridiculously cute and ever changing roommate agreement were exactly what I needed. I've had the pleasure of reading many of Leddy Harper's books now and this woman never disappoints! I'd most definitely recommend this book as your next read.


I loved this book! I loved the characters, Cash and Jade. I loved the storyline. I loved giggling one minute and misting up the next. I loved guessing their dark secrets. I loved cheering them on. I loved their "dis" agreements and every amendment they made. Cash is an excellent lead character because he had a bit of mystery but he was so protective. Jade is strong yet due to her past, she's vulnerable but not naive. I read it in a day and didn't want it to ever end but oh how sweet it was when it did. I loved this book!


Cash is a man with secrets. Secrets that he is afraid that will make the one woman that has truly found her way into his heart run away if she is ti find out the truth about who and what Cash is. Cash lives in the gray area of the law. It is in this area that he doing what he has to do to ensure the safety of not only the woman that he loves but also others in society. Jade is a woman that has her own secrets. Her secrets are ones that has made her the cautious woman that she is. There are things in her past that she is just wanting to run away from and not have to look back on. She just wants to be able to provide a real life for her daughter. Its with a chance reading of an posting for a single man looking for a female roommate that turn not only Jade's life around, but also helped a man that didn't know he was missing something realize what he was truly missing. This story was one that will have your heart strings pulled and wanting more. I unable to put this book down once I started. I am a new reader for Leddy Harper and I can say that I am looking forward to more of her work.


When I started this story it didn't immediately hook me, you see, I went into the story with an idea, an assumption; My mistake. The further I read and let go of these ideas and assumptions, the more hooked into the story I became. I met these virtual strangers, connected with them, saw them grow, adapt, change. I loved it. I freaking LOVED Cash. He was such a different kind of Hero. Jade, Jade, Jade...I didn't know whether to hug or slap her. I loved her one second and the next?The next I wanted to choke her lights out.While I can understand, empathize with some of her situations, so

me of her attitude towards Cash was just aaargh! She really brought out myriad of emotions. The story is beautiful. I really loved the touch of suspense and mystery. Appreciated the realness that walked hand in hand with the fiction. Adored how relatable the characters were, especially Jade. This story had it all, humor, seriousness, heart and soul.


Without reading the blurb and looking just at the cover, I thought I was going to read a Rom Com. My what a weave this author wove that had me hooked and completely off balance. Without giving any spoilers, I have to say that this story will grab you, one minute have you clapping with glee and the next so sad you want to cry your eyes out. Wonderful story that I thoroughly enjoyed.


Take a lonely, divorced man looking for a roommate. Has to be female because males just don't have the same bubbly personality. Add a single mom with no money and no job. One that has 0 interest in actually becoming said roommate, she just wants to call this perv out before he harms someone. What you end up getting is a sweet, funny and well written read. I loved the characters. The situations that they find themselves in is very possible. I love that the individual issues are not swept under the rug and not fixed just because they suddenly found one another. This is my first read from this author but I will be getting more. I love her witty sense of humor 😊


I literally could not put this book down once I started to read it and finished it within a day! I knew right right from the start that there was something between Cash and Jade, and that they couldn't just have a friends or "roomates only" friendship. I could tell that he wanted to be protective of her and her daughter and would do anything for her, and I could tell that she want to take care of him just as much. They both went into this agreement claiming to just want a friendship, but you could tell just by reading how much they truly needed each other no matter how much they truly denied it. The way that he helped her with her daughter without even her having to ask, just melted by heart. There's just something about a man and a child, that just does something to me! I loved this book so much!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!


This was fun, even with the tough topic touched on. It was kept light, without delving into too much detail. Cash, embraced his love for Jade considering their 'dis' agreement. Jade, is easy to like and route for. Leddy always has a good balance in light and dark topics, thanks for another great read!


I'm new to this author but I went in blindly because a friend recommended her. The quirky back and forth between the 2 roommates was hysterical!! Both constantly changing the roommate agreement to suit any issues or new rules they figured needed to be made. Hence the reason for the title, 'dis' agreement!! Its also a love story that sneaks up on you and both characters are so deserving of a great love story, given their pasts!! Definitely a must read!!


I loved loved loved this story. It was funny, touching, sexy, intriguing, and yes, heartbreaking. The story unfolds in a captivating way, revealing all the secrets of these two amazing characters, Jade and Cash. Just when you think you know everything, another surprise is thrown your way. You know from the beginning that we aren't getting the full picture, but this author still manages to take you on this unpredictable journey of events and emotions. What I loved most in these characters is that they had me from 'hello' and were so admirable, my love never waned. Yes, they had flaws and wounds but their beautiful spirits and growing connection to each continued to shine through. Jade is the definition of a survivor and represents what all should inspire to be. Cash, oh yum is all I can say. He is the one whose revelations, I found astonishing. Aria, Jade's daughter is added to the story to turn me into a puddle of emotion because of how adorable and sweet she is. Her interactions with both Cash and Jade were the icing on the cake in this story. This is probably one of the most cryptic reviews I have even written but that is because I REALLY want everyone to experience this book for themselves. Happy Reading and enjoy the journey!!!


This is my first Leddy Harper book, I totally loved it, I instantly fell in love with Jade, Cash took a little more warming to but I think that was just because Jade made me laugh from the get go, this story gives you pretty much everything, humour, romance, heartache and family values. It took me a while to figure out who the bad guy was in this book but when I did I ached for him to be discovered by Cash and dealt with. I highly recommend this story. it gets a full 5 stars from me.


Let me just say I loved this book! I love Cash and Jade and ofc we cant forget Aria! She was so adorable on how she was with Cash and how she got close to him, even if Jade didn't want her to get attached. I feel for Jade because she is living with her best friend and the best friend's boyfriend, and she is sleeping on the couch with her 2 year old daughter. She don't have privacy at all, and that is something that she really wants. When her best friend Stevie comes across an ad where a guy is asking for a female roommate, she puts it off, and says she ain't interested. Til one day she decided, to see what this guy wanted.. So she sends him a message, saying she is interested and lies through everything he has ever asked. Til she realizes that after everything, he might be the first person who actually showed appreciation for what she has done to survive, especially with a past that she dont want to come across.. Cash, what to say about Cash but hes such, a gentleman, and is a caring person who has a job that well, is very dangerous and he does things to people who actually deserve it. When he puts an ad on the computer, that he is looking for a female roomate, because he cant stand the loneliness, that is living alone. He never thought he would come across Jade who literally, lies through her mouth and somehow he finds her different, because she makes him laugh, something he hasnt done since the day his ex wife cheated on him. When he meets Jade, she finally says some of the truth that she actually has a 2 year old daughter. By her surprise when she moves in she finds that Cash, did so much to the house to fit her 2 year old daughter. Time goes by and he falls in love With Aria and is falling in love with her but he dont say anything to her but he helps her fight with her past, while hes trying to fight for her not knowing who he truly is. Now, lets talk about the agreement, it was so damn hilarious because he had many dislikes on the paper that she could always change anytime or add to it, which she does, and it becomes hilarious with the things that were put on there. They both come up with so many agreements and the one thing that she puts at the end is, NO FALLING IN LOVE. Which of course he broke that rule. Throughout the whole agreement, they fix it every damn time because so many disagreement's lol. I love this book and it was a blast having the opportunity to read this 5 star book by Leddy Harper!


We all have baggage from our past relationships. Jade and Cash are no different. Cash is looking for a female roommate for companionship after his divorce. Jade staying with her friends in a one bedroom apartment, is looking for her own room for her and her toddler. Both only looking for a friendship and nothing more. However, life always throws us curve balls and they must overcome obstacles. In my opinion, Leddy Harper writes very well about the traumatic event that happened in Jade’s past. This is the first novel I’ve read from this author and I can truly say I will be reading many more.


Loved this book! Loved cash.? Alot! What a beautiful man! Fell deeply in love with him from the first moment. This beautiful love story, with two people who have secrets and pasts. Can they move past them and have a happily ever after? Easy reading, fun and witty. Definitely worth reading.
