It is incredibly stupid to write this text while I’m drunk. But what’s the saying? No gain, no pain. Or, no pain, no shame… Whatever. You know what I mean. And let’s face it. There’s no way I would be doing this if I was stone-cold sober. But since I’m plastered? To hell with it.
I want you.
I know. Crazy, right? Not only am I your temporary roommate but I’m a chatty nurse from Providence with an impeccable bedside manner and secrets. You’re a broody, commitment-phobe sculptor from England who communicates in grunts and single syllables. Not to mention, you’re returning home in several weeks. And yet, from the moment you dragged me for being a Swiftie, I’ve wanted to climb you like my personal jungle gym.
There’s no future for us. I’m not even sure I like you half the time. But that doesn’t stop me from hungering for those same hands that bend and shape metal to bend and shape me. So in all my drunken glory, I guess what I’m trying to say is if you want me, I’m yours. For the next few weeks until you return across the pond and we resume our lives as before. No strings. No demands. No regrets.
So meet me in the kitchen where all this started.
It’s your decision.
Not that it matters. It’s not like I’m going to do something monumentally dumb like hit send on this text.
Broody Brit is a roommates/opposites attract/interracial romance inspired by British Bedmate.
Axel is an artist who creates his sculptures through scrap material that most would consider expendable. He finds himself in the US and staying with Simon as he prepares for an upcoming show however he wasn’t expecting that Zenobia would be his roommate.
Zenobia is still trying to heal from her last relationship when her apartment needs repairs and she has no place to stay. Since Bridget and the family are out of town she suggests that Zenobia stay at their place however she hadn’t know that Simon had arranged for Axel to stay as well. It is only a matter of time before the chemistry between them ignites but will they be able to help each other heal from their pasts?
Personality wise Axel and Zenobia couldn’t be more different however I really enjoyed seeing the way they not only supported each other but truly got to know who the other was at their heart. The story finds a great balance between emotion and romance which will have you pulling for them to have the happy ever after they both deserve.
