Release + Review - Micalea Smeltzer - Desperately Seeking Roommate


1.     Don’t be a smoker. That’s gross.
2.     Don’t be a jerk. I have no time to deal with your mood swings.
3.     Clean up after yourself. Is it really so hard to put dirty clothes where they belong?
If you meet these qualifications, call me.
Desperately Seeking Roommate
When I put the ad in my university’s newspaper, the last thing I ever expect is for the star football player to respond.
From what I know of him, Abel Russo is a womanizer and an absolute jerk.
Sadly, he’s the only thing stopping me from being evicted by my annoyingly gleeful landlord.
It should be easy enough—there’s no chance we’ll fall for each other. But then he gives me lingering looks, and I might just be looking back.
All I wanted was a roommate, but I’m about to get so much more than I bargained for.

Abel’s lips turn up but he doesn’t take his eyes off the road. “Like what you see, Blondie?”
My cheeks redden at being caught, but I stick my chin haughtily into the air unwilling to cower at being called out. “Maybe there’s a bug on your face.”
That smile of his widens. “There’s not.”
“So confident,” I mutter, crossing my arms over my chest and staring out the windshield.
“Why wouldn’t I be? You kissed me.”
“I kissed you back, big difference.” I kick my flip-flops off and rest my bare feet on the dashboard.
“Kissing back is still kissing.”
“Ugh,” I toss my hands up, “you’re impossible.”
“Impossibly handsome? Charming? Irresistible? All three? Definitely all three.” He answers his own question.
Hi. I’m Micalea. Ma-call-e-uh. Weird name, I know. My mom must’ve known I was going to be odd even in the womb. I’ve written a lot of books. Like a lot. Don’t ask me how many, I don’t remember at this point. I have an unhealthy addiction to Diet Coke but I can’t seem to break the habit. I listen to way too much music and hedgehogs have taken over my life. Crazy is the word that best sums up my life, but it’s the good kind of crazy and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

Johnaka's Review 

“Chance encounters, 4 stars”

Lou needs a roommate, like yesterday. All because her landlord decided to up her rent. She didn’t know what to expect when she put the ad in her college paper but she for sure wasn’t expecting Abel. Once he comes into her life its like he’s everywhere. Will she let her hang ups get in the way or will she give Abel a chance?
Abel didn’t want to live with his best friend and his woman, so he moved in with his sister and her family. A house full of kids isn’t exactly a college kids dream. So, when he finds a desperately seeking roommate ad he jumps on it. What he never saw coming was the woman behind the ad. There is just something about Lou that pulls him in. He wasn’t looking for a relationship but how can you turn down fate?
I loved the dynamic between Abel and Lou. They were sweet and balanced each other out. The only real problem I had with Desperately Seeking Roommate is I hate when the heroine has body image issues. I don’t like it when a person repeatedly mentions their size whether it be big or small and Lou did that. It’s really the only reason the story is getting a 4 instead of a 5.
