I’ve loved him from afar.
Though most times he’s only a foot away.
I’m smart enough to know he’ll never be anyone’s forever.
He checks all the bad boy boxes. Tattoos. Check. Motorcycle. Check. Chip on his shoulder. Check check.
If he wasn’t my neighbor and friend I may have thrown myself at him. Okay, yeah. I wouldn’t. Because guys like Dylan don’t want a woman who writes kid’s math textbooks under him in bed. Instead, I pathetically savor morsels of moments where I have his sole attention.
That was until his archenemy moved in with me. Now suddenly, Dylan’s moving in too and warning off the first guy in a long time who’s showing me interest. Could he finally see me as more than a friend, or am I just a prize to win and show off to his enemy?
Book 3 in The Rooftop Crew and Dylan and Rian’s story is a great addition to this wonderful series. In The Rival Roomies we not only get Dylan Phillips and Rian Wright’s story we also get to met Jax Owens a man from Dylan’s past. This couple couldn’t be more opposite, Dylan is the tattooed biker bad boy who owns and runs Ink Envy and Rian is the shy, cute and innocent girl who writes maths book by day and enjoys baking by night. Dylan may have his sights set on Rian but showing her how he feels is proving extremely difficult, even more so because Jax Owens is now rooming in the house with them. Jax used to be Dylan’s best friend but a falling out has left the pair hardly talking and Dylan fears Jax will win Rian over before he gets the chance to tell her how he feels..... This is an entertaining witty read which has the perfect mix of romance, banter and just a hint of angst, it’s a story that ticked all my boxes, it was great to meet new characters as well as catching up with old favourites, I laughed, I sighed and I smiled a lot throughout this great read. A perfect addition to the series and I highly recommend it to all romance lovers.
This is the third book in the latest series from Piper Rayne and is Dylan Phillips and Rian Wright’s story. I have been looking forward to their story and I was not disappointed; a friends to lovers story that ticked the boxes for me.
Whenever I see the name Piper Rayne, I know I am in for an entertaining read and The Rival Roomies was no exception. From the first to the last chapter, I was hooked and had a hard time putting it down when real life got in the way.
When Rian is left as the sole occupant of a 3 bedroom apartment, she needs roommates in a hurry. First Jax moves in , then Dylan. The only problem is she has been infatuated by Dylan for a long time but knows she has no chance with the tattooed motorcycle rider.
Rian is so outgoing and friendly, you cannot help but like her, whilst Dylan is mysterious, hiding secrets . Personally if I had to chose one of the crew to fall for I think it would by Dylan, there is something about the tattoo artist that attracts me.
There were plenty of fun, laugh out loud moments, romance and the build up of tension between the room mates added an extra level to this story.
It was also great to see the other members of The Rooftop Crew make an appearance and I am excited to see whose story is next.
