Sariah Wilson has captured that feeling perfectly in Roommaid, with her signature blend of humor and sweet, clean romance. Madison Huntington is just starting out, and she knows what she wants. She wants to make a difference, devote her life to education—even though pursuing that dream means being kicked out of her disapproving parents’ mansion without her trust fund. So Madison also wants a great apartment—but she gets a rude awakening when she realizes that in her price range, the apartments are definitely not airy or full of charming quirks.
Luckily for Madison (and for we readers, who are along for the ride), she has the opportunity to live rent-free in the place of her dreams, just so long as she takes responsibility for the cleaning and pet sitting. Not an easy feat for someone who never had to learn to boil water, let alone run a load of laundry. Watching her fake it till she makes it had me in stitches, and seeing the romance bud between Madison and her handsome roommate, Tyler, made me feel as fizzy and full of bubbles as the dishwasher Madison mistakenly overfills.
As I approach my fortieth birthday, I realize that my life turned out quite a bit differently than I imagined when I was twenty-two—but I wouldn’t change a thing.
