Graham Malone is my roommate, my personal eye candy, the reason I get up in the morning smiling. (That could be from the illicit dreams I have about him, too, I suppose. Let's move on.) He's also beautiful to look at, but his heart is where his true beauty lies. Take away the exterior, and the interior still shines. I love him. I mean, I'm pretty sure I do, having never been in love before.
Anyway, it seems legit. And now his brother, Blake, is here, and, well, he's the complete opposite of Graham. Sarcastic, brooding, and totally available. But he's leaving soon, and Graham's the one I want. I shouldn't have to remind myself of this, right? I wouldn't have to if Blake would quit looking at me like I'm something yummy and he's starving.
Here's a toast to roomies: the ones you should never fall in love with. Or something.

"Love this book"
I love Kennedy's snarkiness and the way she deals with things. Wonderful writing, the author is amazing and brings you into the book.
"Worst Narration EVER"
This story was not good, and the narration was probably the worst I've ever made it through. There were a lot of scenes where I was wondering why they were in the book, as there was no apparent reason for them to be included. Like the whole foot thing in the beginning. It was basically just gross, and providing the friend and potential other love interest could have been done in a less gross and superfluous way. And the way she is attracted to the brother. The whole time I'm like why is this even happening? I respected her a lot less. She was so whiny, self absorbed, and selfish, why would a nice guy like the main character ever be interested in her? It was terrible. I'm returning it.
The idea wasn't a bad one, but the way that the author told the story did not make me like the main woman character. I suppose it could be better if she was less selfish or at least learned any lessons from being so.
The woman sounded like she was in her 50's rather than the voice of a young woman. It was really distracting.
Mostly I was just questioning my ability to keep listening. The main character was a terrible person, and the narrator only made her worse.
"Something to daydream about..."
For a plotline with very few intense climax points, I loved this book! It was absolutely hilarious and the bond between Graham and Kennedy wasn't an over cheesy relationship which I usually find myself feeling towards most pairs. It's for sure the kind of relationship he daydream about having. Sands did a wonderful job portraying Kennedy and I loved her in this particular book. Would definitely for ages 14-18.
"Unconventionally Awesome female lead"
Loved the story start to finish, the characters were unexpected and many layered. The female lead quirky and relatable but exceptionally unique. Narrorator did an awesome job and had really great inflections. the opening chapter is a little gross, I mean toes yuck, but after that bit it is a delightful journey.
"Love this book and the narrator nails it"
The witty writing was phenomenal and Tara Sands had the perfect amount of sweet and tart in her voice to pull off the brilliant sarcasm.
I loved that it wasn't too sappy and serious, but had such a smart humor to it all.
"good book bad narrator"
this book would be great to hear if Tara sands wasn't the narrator. don't get me wrong she is good but not for this book.
