    Somewhat predictable

    When Jessie is in desperate need of a roommate,, her real roommate, Talia, sends her brother, Shawn, without telling Jessie first. When Shawn shows up in the middle of the night, he enters what he thinks is his room and ends up in bed with Jessie. From there this novel is very predictable and filled with lots of sex. The last third of this book was wonderful and made up for the first part. Once Jess and Shawn's secret relationship is outed, their world begins to collapse. This was the best part of this book and was engaging and tugged on my heart strings. It made me feel invested in the characters and care about their HEA ending. If you enjoy the genre, this is well worth reading and deserves a place on your TBR list.

    Good Read!

    When Jessie's roommate goes overseas for the summer efforts to find a paying roommate fail. Until her roommate comes through at zero hour with just the right roomie. Her brother Shawn. He arrives in the middle of the night and crawls into bed only to find he's got the wrong room and wakes Jess up and she gets the shock of her life. He was her high school crush, years ago. Jessie is the quiet, bookworm type who keeps to herself and prefers to be unnoticed, yet she wants to date. She had no idea Shawn was her new roommate until she gets a text from his sister the following morning. Talia also warns her off of Shawn and does the same thing to Shawn. Talia is a bit much. Shawn has moved to NY to start a new job, transferred from New Mexico, he works for a microbrewery that is expanding. It's important to him that he does well at this job. Shawn doesn't have the best history with his family about jobs, college etc. His backstory unfolds throughout the book. . Things seem to proceed naturally with these two, they get along, are attracted to each other even though they are both wary because of Talia. I loved watching these two grow throughout the story, despite the looming end date, Shawn got Jessie to step out of the box and Jess helped him see himself through her eyes. Talia comes home earlier than planned and blows her mind because she knows they are together. Talia was the queen of nasty. She threw Jessie back lightyears and Shawn running for his life. We watch to see what happens with Shawn and Jessie. Talia apologizes but too little to late for me. This book had a great plot and real depth of character. I hope to see more of the Red Hook Brewery coming from Rebecca! *arc from NetGalley and Entangled for an honest review*

    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.

    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.

    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.
