Summary (Goodreads):

Desperation makes a girl do crazy things…

When twenty-one year old Raina O’Connor is kicked out of her room on short notice, she’s thrown into a frantic search for a new place to stay. As the situation becomes more urgent, her choices have dwindled to her least favorite option—ladies’ man, Kent Nicholson.

Kent Nicholson loves women, just not as a roommate…

When a gorgeous blonde with big hazel eyes answers Kent’s ad for a roommate, his red flags start flying. He’s looking for a wingman, not a chick who will put a damper on his game or drench his apartment in pink. It’s clear she’s in a bind, and something about her makes him break his own rules. But when he reluctantly accepts, it’s with four concrete conditions.

Be his wingman. Don’t get in his way with other girls. No bitchy attitudes. And most importantly, she can’t fall for him.

Pretty sure this was the world’s worst idea—ever…

Trust is something earned. Raina learned that the hard way when her father broke her heart as a child, making it easy to steer clear of relationships. But living with Kent somehow stirs emotions Raina has always forbidden herself to have. Plus, he’s everything she never wanted—untrustworthy, pigheaded…and gorgeous. Something tells her Kent isn’t free of his own secret scars…

Love can drag you down and spit you out, and be worth every second.!

My Review:

Also posted on Goodreads

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Raina O’Connor is looking for a cheap apartment to stay after being kicked out by her roommate. She found a new place but her new roommate, Kent Nicholson has a bad boy reputation and hooks up with women. A LOT. He decided to make Raina a wing-man as long as she doesn’t fall for him or get into his personal issues.

This book has a potential and I like the author’s writing style. However, the characters completely turned me off and the story somewhat dragged on. I am so annoyed by their bickering and fighting. They immaturely handle certain situations and it frustrated me. Also, some parts are not necessary.

I love bad boys but I don’t like the way Kent Nicholson portays it. He was downright insulting and definitely a woman-hater.His words just make me cringe (you don’t want to know because you’ll be MAD. Like REALLY MAD). I just don’t like him at all. What a bastard. Raina is an okay heroine but she’s tends to be a little dramatic. The only one I like is James, their other roommate. He’s deaf but I adore him because he’s understandable and a gentleman.

I guess this book isn’t for me.
