The Roommate by Rosie Danan
Berkley | September 15, 2020
The Roommate was so fresh!
I’ve never read a book about a porn star before, but I was really curious. I’m not a prude, by any means, but I do have a thing about multiple partners in a romance.
In the world, I am all for whatever anyone wants. I’m just as monogamous as they come. I’m happy to report, I wasn’t upset. There was a perfect balance between the side story and the main romance.
In addition, there was so much knowledge and politics about sex work, and the stigma. The idea that it’s not “respectable”. I loved that dialogue. I loved the spotlight shining on the topic, because it should be talked about more. It was more than that, though.
There was a whole story about the empowerment of female pleasure. I want those video’s. It doesn’t exist, but Rosie missed her calling. She should be marketing and selling those “how to” videos.
There were some downsides. Like, the main character gets on my nerves a bit. Frequently, actually. She was a little too much. But, what was annoying about Clara worked in her relationship with Josh. It made his character even better.
Josh was so sweet. He was understanding even when he shouldn’t be. He made mistakes, and sometimes he freaked when he didn’t need to. He also forgave fast.
I enjoyed this Rosie Danan’s debut, and I’ll be alert for her next release.
