Perfect intro to this new expanded World of True North from Sarina
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This standalone book is the perfect introduction to the new wider World of True North which is coming soon.
Sarina’s duo Him/Us with Elle Kennedy were two of the first books I read in this genre and Wesmie remain one of my favourite couples.
I’ve not read any of her MF books though and yet I never felt lost at any point while reading Roommate.
The story here is a familiar one, an out and proud guy falling for a closeted man but there’s more of an interesting back story dating back to their time at school.
There’re other tensions outside of the relationship as well, which help keep the narrative ticking and overall I was engaged throughout in the journey Kieran and Roddy take to happiness.
One thing I appreciated a lot was that there was no unnecessary drama or angsting just to add plot points.
There are moments when both men’s histories plays a role in them not opening up in a beneficial way, but they were totally understandable.
I’m very much looking forward to reading the rest of the LGBTQ series, which will centre around a bar called Vino & Veritas.
