Roman Whitaker is every girl’s best friend. An easy going nice guy, Rome is brilliant and funny. At the age of twenty-two, he’s moving out of his parents’ house for the first time and into off-campus housing with two complete strangers.
Lilly is a cheerleader for the college football team not because she wants to but because it is easier than fighting with her demanding mother. She is vivacious and has recently ended her relationship with her unfaithful boyfriend who happens to be a football player. When it comes to her best friend’s roommate Roman, she is drawn to him in a way she never expected as he sees her and not just her outward beauty.
Roman is sexy, shy and studious. He has recently moved out of his parent’s home and is loving with Lilly’s best friend and her boyfriend which has the four of them spending time together.
They had a casual encounter three years earlier at a party, but he doesn’t believe that someone like her would be interested in someone like him. They are opposites in so many ways but exactly what the other needs in their life. Roman’s family adds a new level of humor to the story and their romance is the perfect mix of sweet and sexy.
Among her favorite vices, she includes: iced lattes, historical architecture and well-placed sarcasm. She lives colorfully, collects vintage books, art, loves flea markets, and fancies herself British.
