Let your homeless best friend stay with you, he said. Being roommates will be fun, he said. It’s only temporary, he said.

He never said I’d fall for him.

The Roommate Agreement, all-new hilarious and romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is available now!


You know what isn’t ‘temporary?’ The endless stream of dirty socks in my bathroom and empty food packets under the sofa—and don’t even get me started on the hot guys who take over my living room every Sunday to watch sports.

I can’t take anymore.

So I propose a roommate agreement. One that will bring peace and order back to my life, complete with rules that might just stop my newfound crush on my best friend in its tracks.

After all, there’s only so many times you can see your best friend naked before you start to lose your mind.

Rules. They’re meant to be broken… Aren’t they?

5 out of 5 stars

The Roommate Agreement is Emma Hart’s newest rom-com. I just know every time I open one of her comedies that I was going to have a great time. At least once or twice while reading one of her books my husband looks like me like…what the hell are you reading that’s so funny? And I tell him the line and most of the time he will say, ok, that was good. Anyway, back to The Roommate Agreement.
Two best friends. Shelby is a writer and needs a roommate. Jay manages a gym and was about to be homeless. He said it was only going to be three months. She loves him dearly but he is a fucking man-child when it comes to keeping things clean. And with her OCD tendencies, it’s driving her up the wall. What is even worse is seeing him walk around the apartment in just his boxers. Why? Because she has developed a little crush since he moved in. He might be a mess but he was damn nice to look at. He also made her laugh, make her dinners when on a deadline, and he balanced her out. But, something had to be done. Hence, the Roommate Agreement. A set of rules to keep his pants on and socks cleaned up.
Omg! I loved these two. Shelby is my spirit animal. I am obsessed with Oreos. It’s bad. I do share but the ones I don’t, they go into the freezer and my family knows not to touch them. She doesn’t like pants. She hates washing her hair. Loved her. And Jay is the complete opposite with his eating and exercising habits and he always washes his hair. They are two best friends that balance each other out in the best ways but can they be more than that? What will happen when he finds out about her little crush?
Overall…I laughed throughout the whole book. Their banter is hilarious. The build-up to more was fun. I was waiting for it. But, it wasn’t all fun. It was also sweet and even had some emotional parts. Yes, I teared up! It was a quick read with lots of wit and great friendship vibes.
“Always with the Oreos,” he muttered, shaking the bag out with a noise that went right through me.
“Shelby, the last time you had girls’ night here, I came back to you mounting the broom and shouting, “Onward, noble steed!””
“I want to write paranormal. I was practicing broom mounting.”
“Sure you were.”
“Sing, monkey, sing.”
He laughed, coming over to the coffee machine. “Only in the shower. It doesn’t sound the same outside of it.”
4.5 out of 5 stars

Pancakes and abs were the things dreams were made of.

Unless the abs belonged to your best friend and roommate. Then, they were off limits.


“Are you the gentleman police?”

“No. I’m a woman with eyes. Also, basic understanding of what a gentleman is.”

“Yeah, well, you’re no lady. I’ve seen you eat pizza and scratch your ass at the same time.”
