Under One Roof
A USA Today Bestseller!
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis comes a new steamy, STEMinist novella…
A scientist should never cohabitate with her annoyingly hot nemesis—it leads to combustion.
Mara, Sadie, and Hannah are friends first, scientists always. Though their fields of study might take them to different corners of the world, they can all agree on this universal truth: when it comes to love and science, opposites attract and rivals make you burn…
As an environmental engineer, Mara knows all about the delicate nature of ecosystems. They require balance. And leaving the thermostat alone. And not stealing someone else’s food. And other rules Liam, her detestable big-oil lawyer of a roommate, knows nothing about. Okay, sure, technically she’s the interloper. Liam was already entrenched in his aunt’s house like some glowering grumpy giant when Mara moved in, with his big muscles and kissable mouth just sitting there on the couch tempting respectable scientists to the dark side…but Helena was her mentor and Mara’s not about to move out and give up her inheritance without a fight.
The problem is, living with someone means getting to know them. And the more Mara finds out about Liam, the harder it is to loathe him…and the easier it is to love him.
To read Sadie and Hannah’s stories look for the novellas Stuck with You and Below Zero, coming soon from Berkley!
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Opposites definitely attract in this witty and upbeat romantic comedy. When engineer Mara isn’t dealing with office politics at her job with the Environmental Protection Agency, she’s binge-watching The Bachelor and eating Chinese food. The last person she’d want to spend time with is Liam, an uptight, emotionally distant lawyer who works for an unscrupulous oil company—but unfortunately, he’s her roommate. Ali Hazelwood gives her two leads so much charm, you can’t help but root for them to get along. Mara’s internal monologues are funny and relatable, and Liam is a sexy, well-rounded love interest. If you like your romance heroines to be funny, feisty, and feminist, Under One Roof is just what you’re looking for.
Pretty good apart from the ending
The beginning of the book was great, the writing was good the characters were well composed and I liked seeing their development throughout the book. My only issue it is that the ending was extremely abrupt, it was going nice and slow but then all of a sudden when the book gets out of the flash back, their relationship just speeds up and there is the end.
Needs better epilogue
It’s cute. A bonus Liam POV chapter, or just basically anything more than looking at a grocery list in the store together. Something more than sex happening and ending the book.
Short and nice
Quick but very nice.
