***Roommates like him should come with a warning.***
From New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author, Nicole Williams:
Soren Decker. He’s the epitome of the “bad boy, good man” persona. The best of both worlds. The worst of them too. He’s the type of guy most girls wouldn’t mind sharing a confined space with, except my new roommate isn’t all swagger and chiseled abs.
He’s bossy. Messy. Cocky. Infuriating. Doesn’t believe in personal space. Has no qualms about roaming the apartment with a loincloth-sized towel cinched around his waist. Seems under the delusion he’s my personal protector (refer back to infuriating). He plays college baseball and holds down a part-time job—I don’t know where he finds the time to get on my nerves.
We have nothing in common . . . except our attraction to one another. And in six hundred square feet of shared space, the tension only has so much room to grow before one of us gives in to temptation. But really, what chance do a couple of young kids chasing their dreams in the big city have of making it?
Since Soren claims I know squat about sports (he might have a semi-point), here’s a stat for him—one in a million. That’s our odds.
***4 ‘I See You. Only You.’ Stars***
First off: THAT cover. Did anyone else picture him arching a brow at you and you immediately dropping to the floor and crawling over to him without thinking twice about it? Yes? No? Well...anyways that cover is HAWT.
Now about the actual book. This book is one of those that I couldn’t put down. I couldn’t. And yet at the same time it made me want to toss it into the freezer for a time out. I swear my eyes hurt from all the rolling they were doing and I should have an indent on my forehead considering all the times it met a solid surface while, but despite how frustrating certain things were, this was seriously a swoon worthy, make your heart all kinds of wonky and twitterpated read and quite honestly all the swoony goodness was because of Soren Decker.
So, yeah. I ADORED Soren. I wanted to Gibbs smack him quite a few times, but I adored him. He’s got that whole “Younger brother I never wanted” thing going on with some of his more irritating habits and yet he’s a true gentleman and has this laid back kind of charisma that makes it difficult to ignore him. His protective side was just as alluring as his flirtatious and playful side and when you combine all that he is with how tenacious he is? He is simply lethal.
I have what I’m going to call a 50/50 thing going on with Hayden. I loved that she had the balls to follow her dreams and take the risk she was. I admired her determination, independence and drive, but boy did she need a reality check in the worst way. She is the cause for my eyes hurting because the mixture of her own issues, naivete and the need to be independent made for a lot of unnecessary bumps in her road. So this mix made her my greatest frustration as well as one of the reasons I kept turning the pages so I could see what it would take for her to take the blinders off.
Soren and Hayden’s journey is a bumpy one and yet when they were at each other’s throats, they were fun to be around..okay, even when they were at each other’s throats it was fun some of the time. But with their living situation being what it is, they had no choice but to get to know each other and it was interesting to see how they worked things out. When the big bump hit, it was pretty explosive and while I’m happy they got their HEA in the end, I would have liked to have had a little more time with them in the aftermath of it all and before they reunited. It’s a bit odd that I want that considering the ups and downs preceding it, but I just needed a little more at that point.
Roommates with Benefits was another great read by Nicole Williams. I was hooked from the start, well from first seeing the cover, but it’s all relative, and even when the characters had me wanting to toss my Kindle into the freezer, I kept turning the pages to see what they’d get up to next.

Another 5 star from Nicole Williams!
I really enjoyed this book. It was a sweet, slow burn romance. Nicole is one of my automatic go to authors. Roommate with Benefits is another one of her books that I really enjoyed.
Hayden moved to New York and is surprised that her roommate is a male. A sexy, hot male named Soren.
Soren quickly became a favorite of mine. He was super sweet and likable. Hayden, I liked her, but at times I wanted to smack her for acting so childish. Then I remembered she's only 19yrs old, so I figured it was normal lol...
