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!
