THE ROYAL ROOMMATE
My purpose in life is to protect you…
Sid is Army strong and sinfully sexy. He is tasked to investigate a woman suspected of having connections with a rebel group. The style of investigation was not his choice, and he is asked to move in as the roommate of the person of interest, Amy.
Amy was thrilled to start her internship in San Francisco and wasn’t expecting a man with rock-solid abs as her roommate. The moment she laid eyes on him, she knew he was bad news.
The attraction was undeniable and they both wondered how long they could hold on to their resolve. Sid didn’t want to sleep with a suspect even if she was wildly beautiful and sexy. Amy wasn’t interested in a fling.
Just when Sid is about to close his investigation and declare Amy’s innocence, he finds out something about her that changes everything. She becomes the most important person in his life.
I'm a big fan of cocktails. I'll mix dark rum with Tomato juice, put sugar syrup in vodka, or even pineapple juice in my scotch. Some of them work, some don't. Okay, most don't; but that's not the point I'm getting at. The point, dear readers, is that I'm a mix freak. I don't like to be bound inside brackets, and the same applies to my choice of reads. I like genre-hopping.
'The Royal Roommate' by P.G. Van gave me exactly that. It is a well-crafted cocktail of romance, with suspense, a little bit of thrill, and a good, healthy dose of hot steaming sex. Rarely have I read love-making scenes written in such boldness, and definitely never by a writer of Indian origin. Kudos, to P.G.V. for that!
WHAT I LIKED
The plot is strong, the narrative is more-or-less evenly paced, the language is easy and modern, and the characters seem real and relatable.
WHAT I DIDN'T
The romantic interactions between the protagonists could have been portrayed slower, better and longer. Now that I sit to think about that part, it almost read like a 2-minutes instant noodle. I'd have liked some more flirtation, some more tension and conflicts between the protagonists.
I recommend this book to everyone who is a fan of sexy romance, served with a scoop each of thriller and suspense.
I give 'The Royal Roommate', a 4 out of 5 stars.
