I had has this book on my radar for awhile, and was really looking forward to it.
Loved the idea, loved the title, loved the description etc.
Yet, when I was reading it, just something about it rubbed me the wrong way.
I found it really hard to not think the hero was a terrible terrible person. He supposedly falls in insta love, so decided to LIE to the heroine about being gay, gets his friend to take part in the lie, then her supposed best friend clicks on at some point and proceeds to carry the lie on.
For a girl, who had had an ex cheat on her, so her self esteem was pretty low, eventually feels ready for dating, then her room mate/best friend spends months “stealing” away her dates, or lying about her being crazy etc, it is pretty cruel. If this fella was meant to be a friend of mine, I would have lost my temper with him months before, not carried on thinking he was one of my best friends, because even without her knowing he was gay, he comes across as a pretty selfish friend.
The heroine, how does she not realise this guy is not gay, even when they start sleeping together….?? Then when she finds out (not by the hero btw) he is all, I tried to tell you so many times but you always cut me off….
Anyway, she is then all cross at him as he lied to her about being gay, although not sure why him sticking his penis into her happy place did not let on………….
So anyway, this book should have been about half the size, and in half the time. It was repetitive, lots of unfunny clam jamming, lots of the heroine thinking “oh I think I am falling for my gay roommate waaaaahhh” lots of the hero with “oh I love her so much I wish she would love me back the same way waaahhh”
So, 2 stars, as it was ok, I finished it. Just did not really like the hero or the heroine, however, I would give the author another try in the future. Just THIS story was not for me.
