    Author cherry popped and what a way to do it! Micalea Smeltzer is brand spanking new to me, though I own most of her books already and now I'm questioning why I haven't read her sooner. But I can assure you whatever rock I've been hiding under, I'm officially out and ready for so much more.

    Desperately Seeking Roommate had everything (I mean every little thing) I love in a college romance... a beautiful love story that was real, flawed, relatable and undeniable in every single way.... with two brilliant characters and one journey you won't soon forget! Plus, this book wrapped up beautifully with not one but TWO epic epilogues.

    Lou needs a roommate... like right now so when Abel responds to her ad, she decides to leave it to fate with what happens next. What she or he doesn't realize is that this single moment and decision to be roommates is going to forever change both of their lives in major, major ways.

    He's tired of meaningless hook ups and she's just living for herself now. He's popular with abs to die for and a sweet personality that was totally unexpected. She's funny, quirky, loyal, and so honest to a fault at times. They are total opposites in a lot of ways and shouldn't work on paper yet the more time they spend together and become friends, lines and boundaries begin to blur from roommates and friends to so much more for Lou and Abel.

    Enough angst and tension between them to have you turning the pages to get all the answers and allllllllll the explosive chemistry to keep you hooked until the very last word, and did I mention fanning yourself from the steam? And always remember to never let anyone treat you like the yellow starburst because you totally are the pink starburst!

    Stop what you are doing right now and add this book to your TBR list! Desperately Seeking Roommate will definitely be on my top reads list for this year and maybe a contender for an all time favorite of mine! And y'all, if I could give this brilliant romance a million stars, believe me when I say I totally would.

    I highly recommend this book.

    Stop what you’re doing and go ahead and get this book. Seriously, don’t even hesitate. Just do it. When I read the blurb I was all on board to try out Micalea Smeltzer for the first time.

I don’t even want to say I devoured this, that’s not big enough. I world champion speed eatered this book.

    Lou is like my soul sister living within the pages of a book. She’s got this irresistibly quirky, weird, hilarious and charming personality that makes her someone you love automatically. I have a practical harem of book boyfriends, but now I’m starting a new list of book girlfriends and Lou is number one on it. And don’t even get me started on Abel. No man should be that hot while also being that sweet. It’s like Micalea Smeltzer wanted all men to suffer by creating the perfect man in him. *side eyes my husband*

    If you want to laugh like crazy, lose your mind over the most perfect book boyfriend ever and enjoy major cravings for pizza and starburst GRAB THIS BOOK!

    **Lemon starburst ARE delicious**

    I haven't read Micalea's books in a while, but something about this one drew me in from the start! And I wasn't wrong, this book is simply amazing!

    Quirky, hilarious and unique,

    isn't your typical college romance.

    Lou is in a league of her own sassy, fun and down to earth. I loved every minute of her story. And don't even start me on Abel. That guy is SWOONY.

    If you like college romances and romcoms you NEED this book!

    A sudden raise in rent makes it necessary for Lou to get a roommate ASAP. But she wasn’t expecting Abel, the sexy and popular football player, to answer her ad. After a quick meet up to get a feel for each other he moves in. The attraction is there from the beginning but they both have to fight it because they’re roommates now. But as they get to know one another the attraction only grows. Why fight it?

    Ok so my breakdown of the book:

    I liked the writing. It paced well while the romance builds

But as they get to know one another the attraction only grows. Why fight it?

    Ok so my breakdown of the book:

    I liked the writing. It paced well while the romance builds up steady without any crazy leaps.

    The banter was alright. There were a couple times that it took me out of the book with its immaturity but not too bad.

    Side characters were good especially Tanner I would have been happy if there were more scenes with him.

    Abel was great. Good character growth and an all around good hero.

    Lou, on the other hand, I did not like. I’ll explain that in a bit.

    This is the first book I’ve read from this author and honestly if you replace the heroine it would have gotten a solid 4 stars. My only other complaints are that the antagonists were really one dimensional. And their presence in the book was solely to create a little drama in the relationship that would have been stale without it. They were pretty much plucked strait from a cliché YA novel and put into this one for extra eye roll factor. I think I need to try another of her books. I don’t doubt her ability to tell a good story this heroine just didn’t do it for me.

    So let’s talk about Lou. I was excited about reading a curvy heroine until she started throwing shade toward other body types. No need to promote body positivity for the curvy heroins AT THE EXPENSE of anyone else there’s room for everyone to be happy with their self. Pet peeve of mine. But really it was constantly things like this: ‘We’re normal-sized—I’m sorry your media standards are candy-cane stick thin. I’d rather eat them than look like one’.. Now rephrase that and sprinkle it all over the book. It came off so strong it brought to mind the good ol’ line “The lady doth protest too much”

    I think she was supposed to come off as funny and quirky but it read more as hostile and overly defensive. The kind of girl that will yell “It’s because I’m fat isn’t it?!” But it’s wasn’t. So she just made a normal situation awkwaaarrrd for everyone. And the other person is pretty much obligated to pay her a complement to soothe her insecurities ,that she denies having in the first place. Plus everyone is hitting on her and telling her she’s hot so I don’t get her unnecessary defensiveness. Then the times that she would have had every right to put someone in their place she decided to meekly walk away instead. I don’t get it.

    Sad because I really tried to like her until I just gave up. She does get a little better in the second half of the book but by then it was too late for me. Don’t get me wrong. She has some redeeming qualities and she has depth to her but overall she didn’t come across well.

    *Note. I received an ARC via Give Me Books Promotions and this is my honest review for Desperately Seeking Roommate by Micalea Smeltzer.

    Sadly, this book wasn't for me, therefore, I could give it only 2,5 stars.

    Let's first look at the positives:

    + Abel was a great love interest and such a decent guy that I couldn't not like him :)

    + There were some sweet and cute moments between Abel and Lou.

    + The very ending, that is Epilogue #2, was sweet and just a wonderful ending that made me smile.

    + There were some sweet and cute moments between Abel and Lou.

    + The very ending, that is Epilogue #2, was sweet and just a wonderful ending that made me smile.

    Unfortunately, that was all the positive I can talk about, now let's look at the things that were not so good:

    - Lou. What can I say? She was just too rude and disrespectful at times, unfriendly and unsocial, kind of a judgemental bit*h. She was too much obsessed with food, as there was just way too much obsessive talking and references to food. There were some good things about her too (like the way she loved and accepted herself, and her quirkiness) but she just annoyed me too much to see past all those negatives.

    - Plot. There was too little of actual plot or just interesting events or anything at all, also there were some unrealistic scenes, cringy and eye roll worthy moments. I was so very bored.

    - Miranda, Lou's best friend. She was a good friend, however, she was just a little bit too much and some of her actions were a bit unrealistic and irritable.

    - Cringy public scene. I never like those public heart-felt apologies and makeups. They can be done in private and be sweet moments, not some over the top, eye roll and cringe worthy (this just happens way too much in romantic movies and books).

    - Boredom. I must say again that I was just bored for the most part of this book. I wanted to DNF it a lot because I just didn't care one bit for Lou or anything that happened in the book.

    - Disappointment. I must say I expected it to be funny, sweet, steamy and swoony. But that was not what I got. I was bored, annoyed, irritated and just very disappointed.

    But if you enjoy contemporary books and don't get annoyed by obsession with food and rude heroine then you could enjoy this book. However, this was just not for me.

    I really struggled to get into this one. The first part of it seemed really slow and it took the enjoyment out of reading it. I managed to carry on, and admittedly, the story picked up, but as I had felt such a disconnect at the beginning, I just didn’t enjoy it as much as I probably should have.

  • Clau

    This story was just too sweet and cheesy. It wasn't for me.

    Also, I hated that the girl talks all the time about her weight, claiming she doesn't care that she isn't skinny and should probably lose some weight.. I felt like she kept saying that because she was trying to hide how much it affects her. Maybe, I would have believe it if she didn't bring it up every five paragraphs.

    Do you believe in fate? Well, Desperately Seeking Roommate was part of mine! I loved Lou and Abel. They were as sweet as pink starbursts and I couldn't get enough. The side characters were a riot too. There were many laughs, swoons, and fanning of thyself. Definitely the fun read I was needing! See, Fate!
