I am now reading excepts of books for bookishfirst.com. Below is a review of the four chapters that I read in this book.
Intersting Start to a New Relatioinship
ROOMIES begins with a girl who works off-broadway for her uncle and who catches a taxi daily to the subway station just to hear a guitarist who is busking there. On one of her daily trips to be his personal groupie, Holland introduces herself and finds out that Calvin is a man of few words. When she is attacked at that subway station, Calvin makes sure she is okay and then quietly says nothing about how the event happened. Holland now has a broken arm and can’t work so she goes to a nightclub with her friend Lulu. And who is coincidentally there? Calvin is the lead guitarist for the band that night. The romance seems to be budding, and Holland is turning from a groupie into a real fan, or more. I’m interested in reading how they become roomies and how the relationship continues to develop. Good start to an interesting way for a relationship to begin!
