From the author of the Goodreads Choice Award winner The Spanish Love Deception, the eagerly anticipated follow-up featuring Rosie Graham and Lucas Martín, who are forced to share a New York apartment. Rosie Graham has a problem. A few, actually. She just quit her well paid job to focus on her secret career as a romance writer. She hasn't told her family and now has terrible writer's block. Then, the ceiling of her New York apartment literally crumbles on her. Luckily she has her best friend Lina's spare key while she's out of town. But Rosie doesn't know that Lina has already lent her apartment to her cousin Lucas, who Rosie has been stalking--for lack of a better word--on Instagram for the last few months. Lucas seems intent on coming to her rescue like a Spanish knight in shining armor. Only this one strolls around the place in a towel, has a distracting grin, and an irresistible accent. Oh, and he cooks. Lucas offers to let Rosie stay with him, at least until she can find some affordable temporary housing. And then he proposes an outrageous experiment to bring back her literary muse and meet her deadline: He'll take her on a series of experimental dates meant to jump-start her romantic inspiration. Rosie has nothing to lose. Her silly, online crush is totally under control--but Lucas's time in New York has an expiration date, and six weeks may not be enough, for either her or her deadline.… (meer)

When the roof literally falls down in Rosie Graham's apartment, she decides to stay in the apartment of her friend, Lina, who is on her honeymoon. After finally getting settled in, a bang on the door makes her fear that the apartment is about to be robbed, but it turns out to be Lina's cousin, Lucas. They decide to share the apartment as friends, but each is keeping secrets that could change the course of their friendship.

The American Roommate Experiment is the companion to The Spanish Love Deception and follows characters from that book. This romance is fun and cute, but the characters are so friendly and likable that there is never any real conflict, making the story a bit boring. The dating experiment that Rosie and Lucas decide to embark on is enjoyable, but without much in the way of steam or substance. Overall, The American Roommate Experiment is successful at developing the friends to lovers trope but doesn't offer much else for the reader. ( )

The opening meet-cute here was really bad. The author made our MC, Rosie, seem neurotic, illogical, and incompetent. That was entirely inconsistent with everything else in the book. Throughout the story Rosie shows herself to be smart and brave and the stalwart friend/sister/daughter there to anchor everyone around her. Lucas, our other MC, is pretty hot from the start. He is a Spanish surfer with a substantial IG presence and is the cousin of Rosie's best friend. I won't go into the details, but the basics are that Rosie has left her engineering job to write romance, but after a successful first book she has some serious writer's block and cannot get in touch with her romantic side. Lucas, with whom she becomes instant best friends (and whom she has been following and lusting after on IG for ages), sets himself to teaching her about romance. It is all very swoony, lots of longing. There is no sex until about 75% in, but the sexual tension is well-deployed and very hot and the sex, when it arrives, is on the page, very steamy, and a little dirty in a very good way. Lots of tension stems from the ticking clock of Lucas' visa which is about to run out, but both MC's have chosen to keep secrets from their families (but not each other) and that provides a great second level of tension. It is all quite lovely. I would love it if Armas' writing was a little tighter, and honestly if it was a little better. The secondary characters are not well drawn at all and since we spend a lot of time with them that is an issue. Armas also gets a little too sappy and makes Lucas a little too perfect, but it is still a fun ride.

I listened to this on audio, and let me say that the male narrator has an insanely sexy voice. It matters not what he is saying -- the way he says "Lucas" is ridiculously alluring. I am wondering if he has a Cameo or Only Friends account where I can pay him to talk to me as a drift off to sleep. (kidding-not-kidding) and the female narrator is also quite good. i definitely recommend the audio. ( )
