I knew from the first time I saw Marc Kirby that I was screwed.

Big eyes, scruffy face, brown curls – yes, yes, and yes. The man is wicked hot.

He’s also my roommate, and since I work nights and he’s at class all day – it’s like living alone at half the rent.

Then an unexpected night off turns into an unexpected morning in Marc’s bed and an even more unexpected realization that both of us are terrible in the sack.

This is not great news for Marc who’s going on a “bangcation” at the end of the summer – a whole month in France that he’s planned to spend getting busy with the women of Paris.

It’s also not great news for me for obvious reasons.

With both of us needing work on our skills, there’s only one logical solution to our predicament.

Told you I was screwed.

Maria’s Review

“Shall we toast?” Marc held up his glass.
I raised mine and clinked it against his. “To good wine and even better sex!”
“Seduction!” he corrected. “The sex itself is going to be awesome.”

➦Yeah. I approve.

➦What’s the best way to get to know your hot, albeit a bit nerdy room mate? Buy some wine! And try to be friendly. Wine, bringing people together since… since it was invented. Also a great

➦I digress… Our heroine here is an artist and has been living with a room mate for months without actually even knowing him. Their schedules just don’t match. She works and he is always away studying. But it all changes when he finally graduates. How to celebrate?

➦You guessed it! And then may be one thing will lead to another…

➦Just make sure you don’t over-do it, yeah? But IF by some chance you do, there’s always tomorrow and more WINE to be had. So let’s toast!

➦Wait, no. So anywhoooo… the hero thinks that the heroine needs help in the department of “seduction” and they decide to help each other out. And that’s how she comes up with a name “Screwmates” for her new comic strip about… herself and her… um, situation. Which, actually, takes off and becomes somewhat popular online.

➦Don’t mind if I do. 😀 I actually enjoyed this read just fine. It is fun, flirty and cute. Unfortunately I just never fell in love with the hero. His character felt rather underdeveloped and I never found myself le swooning over him. He’s like most dudes: bad at expressing his feelings. Kinda wanted him to throw the heroine a bone once in a while.

➦If you like fun, cute reads with roommate trope and quirky characters this one is for you!
