When her eyes creep open in the morning and meet mine, and her face lights up with a smile, I decide actually this is better than making love.

Publisher’s Synopsis:
Irresponsible. Impulsive. Reckless. I’ve has heard it all from my family and I’m getting a little sick of it. I’m a smart guy, after all. In a family of brainy engineers, someone has to be the fun one, but the other Bradys don’t see it that way. To get a break from my family, I decide to move out and answer an online ad for a roommate.

What could go wrong?

For starters, my roommate turns out to be…not a dude. A smoking hot finance chick. But this is fine. We can be friends who live together. I just need to ignore the simmering lust that clouds my vision.

Point of view:
1st person. Alternating chapters between Cal & Logan’s perspective.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
This is book 4 in the Brady Family series by Lainey Davis. While you can enjoy this on its own, I think it’s best enjoyed after the previous books.

I have to admit, I was a little worried that Davis wouldn’t be able to redeem the affable but rudderless and seemingly self-centered Cal. I shouldn’t have been though. Between realizing he was often misunderstood and the way he matures over the rest of the book – I ended up loving him. I like how he and Logan were opposites who smoothed out each other’s prickly edges.

The accidental roommate setup was a lot of fun and these two navigating a tricky situation made for tons of laughs.

I’m ready for Orla’s book, Current.

Carly Robbins & Tom Taylorson continue to be a blast to listen to – it’s so much fun as they bring Davis’s characters to life. Logan and Cal are such distinct characters and they both did a terrific job.
