Rosie Danan not only created characters who you'll think about long after you're finished reading, but she wrote a powerful, feminist book, that makes you laugh as hard as you cheer. The Roommate is sunshine in the form of a book. I can't wait to see what Danan brings us next!
Genuinely swoonily romantic
One of the steamiest romances of the year. This is a downright revolutionary story about modern women owning their desire that features a respectable socialite embracing her new roommate's job as a sex worker (and a few other things, too)
Rosie Danan's The Roommate is seriously sexy, seriously smart
The Roommate is a book about people expanding into their best possible selves - about embracing pleasure, loving unabashedly and fighting exploitation and small-mindedness. Warmly funny and gorgeously sexy, this porn-star romance is the most wholesome thing I've read in ages
The Roommate is both hilarious and earnest, with off-the-charts tension and a sparkling, vibrant voice. Clara and Josh captured my heart from their first interaction. I loved every word of this steamy, empowering romance
The Roommate is unapologetically sexy as hell. Danan's writing, like her characters, is funny, seductive, and full of heart. You're gonna love this book
Gloriously soft and joyful, a sex positive manifesto inside a deliriously romantic, wickedly shameless love story
What an incredible debut! Danan gives us strangers to annoyed-roommates to kinda-friends to angsty-pining to finally-lovers with humour, wit, and just a hint of pathos. Josh and Clara are easily my favourite 'smash the patriarchy' couple, and The Roommate is easily one of my top romance reads of 2020!
Nuanced, funny, super steamy and surprisingly tender, The Roommate raises the bar for rom coms in 2020 - a smashing debut, and I can't wait for more by Rosie Danan!
This book IS PURE JOY. Feminist, irreverent, sexy, surprising. We loved it
Wildly original and sexy romance . . . This delectable rom-com is both red-hot and fiercely feminist
The Roommate is laugh-out-loud funny, bananas sexy, and deeply romantic. Danan's voice is fresh and sharp, and the romance between Clara and Josh is both sizzling hot and heartwarming. Everything I want in a romance
With humour and style reminiscent of Christie Craig or Susan Elizabeth Phillips, newcomer Danan is definitely an author to keep tabs on
A deliciously fresh romance with strong characters and feminist themes
This book is GOLD
Fresh and different, a special, superbly written slow-burn
Incredibly sweet and romantic, The Roommate serves up a passionate but buoyant love story between two slightly lost people who figure out they have more to offer the world than they ever thought
