Reviews Misadventures with My Roommate

  • Melanie (mells_view)
    Well. First I’d like to say I’ve never read anything that the author pair, Elizabeth Hayley, has written. I saw this cover and the blurb on NetGalley and knew I had to request it.But a blurb is just a blurb, and a cover is just a pretty cover until the author/authors fill the book up with some words. The thing is Elizabeth Hayley didn’t just give us “some words.” They give us a roommates to lovers story that was perfect parts emotional,...

  • Heather
    **I received an early copy of this title courtesy of NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review**While Misadventures with My Roommate is part of the "Misadventures" series, it can definitely be read as a standalone. This was my first Elizabeth Hayley book, but it certainly won't be my last. She crafted a fast-moving, humor filled book with characters you can't help but love. Blake is a breath of fresh air. She's quirky and she h...

    3.75 stars.Another great addition to the Misadventures series which I have really enjoyed reading. This is my first by the pair of authors known as Elizabeth Hayley.Blake the heroine was just so quirky and blunt to the point of rudeness (no filter) but in such an amusing way that I couldn't help finding myself thoroughly entertained by her behavior and antics. She has serious issues that lead her to keep people at a distance . Having chased away ...

    Third person, Dual-POV, HAE. Can be read as standalone.Release date: March 27, 2018 His ability to roll with her quirks was... kind of endearing. Though it also made her wonder if he was even crazier than she was. A girl with little to no personal connections, by her choice, and a guy who's in need of a place to stay, and in turn shakes her entire world up.If you're a fan of roomies-to-lovers, this is the book for you. Full of humor, steamy roman...

    I loved Gavin and Blake's journey. This is a cute love story with some hot sex. Highly recommend.
  • Kate (beautifulbookland)
    I finished this book a few days ago and am only now writing this review now, nearly two whole days later.Why?Because I forgot about it. It literally made such an effect on me that I forgot I’d read it.So this is going to be a pretty short review because I can’t really remember a great deal about much of this book. The basics are:- Blake, our heroine; quirky, no filter, she sort of hinted towards autism in the beginning but it wasn’t acted u...
  • Martha
    Misadventures with my Roommate was a super fun read. It was fun to watch Gavin and Blake grow. Blake has a dark past that she cannot seem to move from. She is aggressive and always speaks her mind, but will hold back true emotion and not let anyone too close.. Enter Gavin.. She finds herself telling him things that no one knows.. These 2 have some amazing chemistry as the walls start to come down. Is Gavin just what she needed to let go?! Like al...
  • Nicki Holt
    What the reader thinks is going to be another cute book about roommates hooking up is so far from the truth about this book. The relationship between Blake and Gavin was so much more. It was all about opening up, fighting your fears and doing things that matter to YOU. The characters were lovable and the storyline had much more depth than the others in the series. This was a fabulous read that I highly recommend.
  • Wine and Late Night Mommy Reads
    Oh my stop the presses, I have a new favorite misadventure book and it's Misadventure with my roommate. The chemistry between Blake and Gavin was a-maz-balls. The he fast paced witty banter had my laughing from the very beginning.
  • Leslie

  • Ayekah
    I absolutely freaking loved this book! Holy shit! This is my favorite book of the Misadventures series and it's a must read.Welcome to the world of Blake and Gavin. Blake's first day on the job at the coffee shop didn't go well after a nasty woman complained about her inability to understand her coffee lingo and since Gavin had experience, her boss had her shadow Gavin to learn the basics. Blake didn't have any problem finding out all there is to...
  • Jaime
    I really liked this book. Both of the characters were fun and quirky and genuinely good people. Blake was a pretty good character. There were moments when her quirks and eccentricities were a little much, but I did like her. I honestly thought her "secret" was that she was autistic not what it ended up being. I loved that she spoke her mind and didn't apologize for it. She had moments of immaturity, but overall, she is someone I would want to be ...
  • Linda Dunn
    Square Peg in a Round HoleThis best describes Blake's personality. She goes with the flow in her life and never sets her expectations high. She is herself, take her or leave her. She has no filter and blurts everything out she is feeling and thinking at the time. She had had a rough beginning in her life and therefore she holds her feelings close to her chest and does not let anyone sneak into her exterior walls she has built up for herself.That ...
  • Elizabeth
    I received a copy of this book via NetGalley for an honest review. This is the third book I've read that is part of the Misadventure Series and my first read for the author duo of Elizabeth Hayley.This is a solid book, well written, great details; however, initially when I started, I found Blake to be very annoying and it almost became a DNF for me, BUT as the story develops, I found her to be endearing. In the end I loved her character. Blake is...
  • Gwen Shafer
    I absolutely loved these books. I have only read two but have fallen in love with these. This one was different right from the beginning. It was off the charts funny and unique. I absolutely loved Blake and Gavin together. They compliment each other so very well and just have the uniqueness that the author is trying to get with this book. Blake is someone different and you can easily tell that right from the beginning. Blake ends up needing a roo...
  • Chanda Norman
    Blake had a troubled childhood and learn to deal with the world by using a honest, no holds approach to life. She has no filter so you never know what she is going to say or do next. Add in Gavin, a sexy, caring boyfriend/roommate that looks beyond her quirky ways and you have the makings of a funny, sex filled romance that will leave you with smile on your face. I have read and enjoyed all but one of the "Misadventures" series. The stories have ...
  • Shannon
    This was my first read by this author and overall it was an enjoyable read. I read this book in one sitting and found it to be a light and funny story of coworkers turned roommates turned more. Blake is a quirky girl with a difficult past and no desire for a relationship. Gavin is a hardworking guy trying to follow his dreams. They are opposites in pretty much every way and Blake is definitely a little on the crazy side. Somehow their differences...
  • Autumn
    Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Hold up....there is a Misadventures series?!?! I was unaware when I requested this that it was part of a series. This reads like a standalone which makes it even easier to recommend to readers. Must check out the rest of the series!!What I loved: This book was different, just like the MC Blake. It wasn't what I thought I was getting, it was much, much more. What I liked: This felt r...
  • Yaklin Polanco
    I requested this book from Netgalley because it sounded like a great book. I’ve never read anything by this author but since it’s a Misadventures I figured let me give it a shot. Half way through the book I got bored of it. Blake is a quirky girl that blurts out what’s on her mind. Gavin seemed humble, and a very hard working guy. They had an attraction but it was just weird. I feel like there should’ve been more to the story, like I felt...
  • Donna Purcell zappone
    Let me just start off by saying I absolutely love all the misadventures books. These are short, fast reads that are all standalone stories.This one involves Blake who has a very mysterious , dark past . I like her a lot. She's not afraid to speak her mind but always keeps a part of her, her past, away from everyone. Except with Gavin! She finds herself spilling her guts to him and Durant know why. But let me tell you they have amazing chemistry.I...
  • Laurie Murray
    I have loved each Misadventure book that I have read but I really enjoyed this one as Blake and Gavin are both dealing with issues and the book focuses on that as much as their other misadventures. During the book we are able to find out why Blake is the way she is, no filter, says what is on her mind. We also learn more about Gavin and his passion for photography. Two people who are thrown together are able to make the best of situations others ...
  • Dana hamilton
    This is a sweet story of a young couple and young love. Two souls finding their own way and connecting. They couldn’t be more different and yet, in many ways are so very similar. The book felt like a shortened version of what could have been a more well rounded story. One that could have delved further into Blake’s past; adding layers to her story. Gavin was the ultimate guy, with the patience of Job. It was hot in parts and tender in other a...
  • Kelly C
    Elizabeth Hayley’s Misadventures with my Roommate was a book I could not put down she made me love the characters and feel for them. Blake is witty mouthed and Gavin is a struggling photographer who both work in a coffee shop. When Gavin is about to become homeless Blake offers him a room as her roommate has just moved out. The witty banter between the two had me laughing out loud as they built their friendship. Both with broken past, they work...
  • Lindsay
    These misadventure books are short, fast reads. Excellent for reading on a long drive or take along to the beach for the day. They are also standalones and can be read in any order. Blake is a girl who has no filter. Is blunt, witty and has a dry sense of humor that people find difficult to live with. Oh and she hides almost all her emotions from all except Gavin. Gavin is in need of a place to live since his wealthy family has cut him off. So th...

    I received a advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Welcome to Blake and Gavin's story. Blake's roommate moves out an Gavin, Blake's co-worker is in need of a place to live. Gavin learns how quirky Blake is but rolls with it. They start having hot sex not long after and to their surprise they both make progress in their personal lives. Roommates was a fun read!
  • Debbie Clark
    What a nice new addition to the Misadventures Series. Blake finds her current roommate moving out suddenly and her sexy coworker Gavin is in need of a new place to stay. Let the fun begin. I would've loved to dive a bit deeper into Blakes quirkiness. I do find this to be a nice new addition to the Misadventures Series.
  • Toni Paul
    This is a friends to lovers book about two people who are troubled in very different ways. Quite honestly, I did not like the heroine, Blake, at the beginning but she grew on me, especially when I found out about her past. Gavin, our hero, is endearing from page one. You can't help but fall in love with him. Good HEA story.
