From subway to Broadway to happily ever after. Modern love in all its thrill, hilarity, and uncertainty has never been so compulsively readable as in New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren's Roomies...and don't miss her newest romantic comedy The Unhoneymooners, coming soon! Marriages of convenience are so...inconvenient. For months Holland Bakker has invented excuses to descend into the subway station near her apartment, drawn to the captivating music performed by her street musician crush. Lacking the nerve to actually talk to the gorgeous stranger, fate steps in one night in the form of a drunken attacker. Calvin Mcloughlin rescues her, but quickly disappears when the police start asking questions. Using the only resource she has to pay the brilliant musician back, Holland gets Calvin an audition with her uncle, Broadway's hottest musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until his reason for disappearing earlier becomes clear: he's in the country illegally, his student visa having expired years ago. Seeing that her uncle needs Calvin as much as Calvin needs him, a wild idea takes hold of her. Impulsively, she marries the Irishman, her infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves and Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway—in the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting—will Holland and Calvin to realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?

Professional reviews

"When Holland's crush, a busker from the subway station, turns out to be the amazing guitarist that her uncle needs for his Broadway show, she does the only reasonable thing she can and enters into a marriage of convenience with the handsome Irishman. Narrator K.C. Sheridan does a great job capturing Calvin's Irish accent, though it sometimes spills over into Holland's dialogue. Holland's uncles also play a major role in the developing relationship between Holland and Calvin, and Sheridan provides voices for them as well as for Holland's best friend and Calvin's family. When their marriage of convenience turns into something else, Holland has to figure out what's real and what's just wishful thinking. E.N. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
