    Wrong Bed, Right Roommate

    i read this book as part of an arc program. This is the story between Jessie and Shawn. Jessie was best friends with Shawn's sister Talia and they rented an apartment together in New York. Talia was a dancer and was going to be away in London for the summer, so they decided to sublet her bedroom, only the woman who was supposed to rent it cancelled. Talia arranged for her brother Shawn to rent the room, only Jessie didn't get the message. Shawn showed up at the apartment after Jessie was in bed and accidentally went to her room. Jessie was not happy to see Shawn there. When they were in high school, Shawn was a jerk and slept with two of Talia's friends and it ruined their friendship. Jessie would never admit to anyone she had a crush on Shawn, but she was the quiet girl with braces no one noticed. Shawn was shocked to see Jessie and how much she changed. They agreed to be civil to one another while he lived there for the simmer. Soon they fell into a routine and became friends. When Shawn asked if Jessie wanted to go see where he worked, she agreed and they went out with his co-workers for drinks. They had too much to drink and one thing led to another when they came home. They vowed it would never happen again, but they couldn't stop. Things were going well until Talia said she was coming home early. I really enjoyed this book. I loved seeing Shawn and Jessie fall in love. They were good for each other and had a great connection. Shawn needed someone to give him a reason to grow up and have someone believe he wasn't a screw up. Jessie needed someone to remind her to have fun and not worry so much about work. Great story.

    Trying

    Jessie and Shawn have known one another for a long time, since he is her best friend's older brother. She has tried hard to not be attracted to the player. She even promised her friend she was not interested. Shawn does not even remember the little friend his sister has had for so long. He just needs a place to crash, since he starts a new job in such a foreign place as New York. The lust he feels for her suddenly is not welcome. This book is what one would call a slow burn. I love that they can find common ground. I found the characters to be full of heart, heat, and a fun joy to read. I am excited to see more of what will come in this series. ***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.

    Tropey, sexy fun

    This book was a delight. Writing this review has taken me a while only because I've been sitting here wondering how to describe something that hit all of my happy buttons... I've decided that the best way to tell you about it is just to tell you about the buttons. Here goes! Button #1: Neighbors/Roommates I adore this trope. It's forced proximity, which means that the two protagonists must deal with each other. AND it means that if they want to bang, they're frequently tempted. Author Rebecca Brooks takes it even further by adding in some of those early morning "let's make breakfast together" moments. The result is both filthy and sweet. Button #2: Enemies to Lovers/Best Friend's Brother Now that I'm listing them out, this book is just hella tropey?! The hero is taking over a sublet for his sister, who is the heroine's best friend for decades. This means that there's plenty of history, and in this case? It's not great. When Jessie was a shy teenager, her friends had crushes on Shawn, Talia's older brother. Unfortunately... Shawn slept with one of those friends. Then dumped her. And slept with the other one. Talia and Jessie remained friends, but there's always been a very clear line - DO NOT SLEEP WITH SHAWN. Button #3: A Hot Mess Trying to Turn His Life Around But now, Shawn is a grownup. He's been disappointing employers and partners, himself and his family for years. And now he's ready to make a change. He has a real job, with real responsibilities and a future. He might even be able to have a real relationship with Jessie, assuming Talia doesn't find out... Button #4: Mature Adults Talk About Things Thank goodness the bleak moment only lasts a chapter or two. Because we knew Talia was going to find out, right? And we knew she was going to be angry and everything would blow up. But we didn't know that Talia would *spoiler* and then everything would work out. (It's a romance, we knew about the HEA.) Button #5: Scorching Sexytimes All this angst and drama is glued together by some really well-written sex. There's a scene with a toy and it's *flames emoji.* There's a scene in a stairwell that is get-fired-and-not-care hot. Here's how much I loved this book - I finished it at around 1:00 am and then went to the internet to find and buy Brooks' previous books. I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review via NetGalley.

    a good read

    Wrong Bed, Right Roommate is a sexy standalone best friend’s older brother / roommate romance. Jessie is an introverted bookworm who is dedicated to being successful at her new job . Shawn, Jessie’s best friend’s older brother, was known as the good-looking, popular baseball player at high school who never took notice of Jessie. Circumstances led to him being her temporary roommate. I like how the two are opposites and yet they gravitate towards each other. I also liked how Shawn owns up to his faults at the beginning of the book and meets them head on - striving towards maturity, trying to prove himself at a new job, and avoiding the playboy lifestyle. Jessie, I liked her as a heroine, but sometimes annoyed me during the first quarter fo the book because she jumped to conclusions and was so quick to assume that Shawn couldn’t possibly have changed over the years. While this book was predictable, I still found it to be an enjoyable read I received this book for free.

    An enjoyable story

    Wrong Bed, Right Roommate was an enjoyable read. That likable characters, great chemistry, and a storyline that was not only sexy, charming and entertaining. But well paced, easy to read and had the perfect amount of angst and sweetness to keep me engaged throughout. And rooting for Jessie and Shawn to get their happy ever after. Would happily recommend. **I was kindly provided with an ARC by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review**
