BLOG TOUR - Roomies by Lindy Zart (Review & Excerpt)

Title: Roomies
Author: Lindy Zart
Genre: NA Rom-Com

Graham Malone is my roommate, my personal eye candy, the reason I get up in the morning smiling (that could be from the illicit dreams I have about him too, I suppose. Let's move on.). He's also beautiful to look at, but his heart is where his true beauty lies. Take away the exterior and the interior still shines.

I love him. I mean, I'm pretty sure I do, having never been in love before. Anyway, it seems legit.

And now his brother Blake is here, and, well, he's the complete opposite of Graham. Sarcastic, brooding, and totally available. But he's leaving soon, and Graham's the one I want. I shouldn't have to remind myself of this, right? I wouldn't have to if Blake would quit looking at me like I'm something yummy and he's starving.

Here's a toast to roomies; the ones you should never fall in love with. Or something.

He gives a slight smile. “You don’t know everything about me.”
“I should know that.” Maybe I shouldn’t, but I really feel like I should. Graham’s pretty much the most important thing to me; I should at least know his family history. He knows mine. Well, most of it. Some of it. Enough...
“Now you do. Are we done? I really need to put some clothes on.”
“But…you said he was in school,” I finish lamely, my voice dropping to a whisper.
“He’s in college.”
I scowl at him. “You purposely led me to believe that your brother was some pimply teenager who was going to mooch off you for the remainder of the summer, not…not…” I jab a finger in the direction of the living room.
“Not what?”
“Not some hottie!” I blurt out, and then wish I hadn’t.
Especially when Graham rears back and gets a funny look on his face. “You think my brother’s hot?” His voice is even, but his eyes look weird. Like, angry or something. A thrill goes down my spine at the thought of my comment having that effect on him. Could he be jealous?
“Yes.” I nod firmly.
“Huh.” He looks away.
A dash of regret has the audacity to chase the little thrill away. I wonder if I’ve upset him, but then decide I haven’t. Why would he be upset? Unless he doesn’t know I think he’s hot too. So I figure I should tell him. It would be rude not to.
“You’re also hot.”
He gives me a look; part incredulous, part I don’t know what. “Thanks,” he says faintly.
“Yeah.” I start to feel dumb about pretty much the whole conversation. “Okay. ‘Bye.”
I glance back at him. He is staring at me with a frown pulling his mouth down. “You should put some clothes on.”
I enter the living room. Blake is studying a fake plant in the corner of the room, which pretty much confirms that he was listening to our complete word exchange. Wonderful.


This is the first book by this author I have read and I think after this one I will definitely be checking out her other books. This one was really funny. I lost count of how many times I laughed out loud. The wit and sarcasm were off the charts. 
The story is well paced. A lot going on so I never felt bored. The characters were entertaining but my god they frustrated me to no end! No one would just come out and say exactly what they felt! They would all just skirt around the issue. This got quite annoying but not enough to make me stop reading. The presence of a love triangle also wasn't my cup of tea but it was bearable. Mainly cause I loved Blake! That dude was awesome :) Don't get me wrong, I was team Grennedy all the way, but I still had a soft spot for Blake. Kennedy I did like but my god could she be such a bitch. And her and Graham could be so immature a lot of times.

Apart from all that though I did really enjoy this book. It was witty and quirky and an overall fun read. Looking forward to reading more from this author.
