Could you turn your best friend into your boyfriend? I absolutely loved Amelia. She was such a funny and relatable main character. Her dorky side made me laugh almost as much as I did when she was hilariously honest about what she really thought about the people in her life. I also appreciated the fact that she was so comfortable in her own skin. All of her various identities were part of who she was, of course, but they weren’t the focus of the story which I found refreshing. It was a little surprising to me to see how quickly the romantic part of the plot moved along. Based on what the blurb had mentioned about it, I was expecting it to be drawn out for longer than it was. It would have been nice to either have some more conflict in this part of the storyline or have a better explanation for why it unfolded the way it did. With that being said, this was a minor criticism and I definitely still rooted for Amelia and Liam to end up to together. They knew each other so well that they could have almost had an entire conversation based on body language and facial expressions alone. I really like it when characters have this kind of close and loving relationship before they begin think about each other in a romantic sense. Loving Liam was one of the most romantic tales I’ve read in ages. I’d recommend it to anyone who is in the mood for something charming.
Romance on the Go ®
The first rule of housemates: never date a roommate.
Grad student Amelia Baker shouldn’t have a crush on her roommate, Liam. Ever since the car accident years ago left her wheelchair bound, her family has treated her differently. But Liam makes her laugh and want something more than just friends.
When a snow day turns into one of the busiest at the coffee shop leaving Amelia short-handed at work, Liam lends a hand. When her best friend drops the bombshell that he’s been offered a job four hours away in Seattle, Amelia doesn’t know what to do. If she tells Liam how she feels, she might lose his friendship. Will Amelia and Liam become more than just friends, or will she be left out in the cold?
“You’re surprisingly not freaking out right now.”
“I’m not.” I traced my fingers over the buttons on his shirt. “I kind of want to kiss you right now. But I don’t want to take advantage of your condition.”
“Superdork. It’s a recognized medical condition.”
He dug his fingers into my ribs, in that place that never failed to make me shriek with laughter, and I wiggled furiously, trying to escape. He tickled me relentlessly until I batted his hands away. “Okay, Okay, truce, truce.”
As my laughter died away, I noticed how amazing he looked. He stared at me, his gaze intense, and I realized that our positions had shifted with me lying on my back with him cradled in between my thighs.
I curled my finger in his shirt and tugged him closer. This time when his lips touched mine, there was nothing gentle about the kiss. With a soft sigh, I parted my lips and when his tongue touched mine, an embarrassingly loud moan rumbled out of my chest.
At the noise, I froze. “Oh God.”
