Publisher's Summary

A feisty comedian. A former cop with a wounded heart. An unusual roommate arrangement...

Comedian Stephanie Renshaw hopes to finally get her big break in LA. A chance encounter lands her the perfect apartment close to the comedy clubs, but it comes with a catch: She needs a roommate to afford the rent.

Enter Rae Coleman, a former police officer working the door at one of the top comedy clubs. After getting injured in the line of duty and losing her job with the LAPD, Rae guards her wounded soul behind a tough exterior.

At first, the two clash horribly before a tentative friendship develops. Bit by bit, Steph manages to break through the walls Rae has built around her.

But Steph has never been in a relationship, preferring casual flings, and Rae isn't sure she's ready to be happy again. Will they find the courage to open themselves up to love?

Contains mature themes.

Great read.

I found The Roomate Arrangement easy to listen to, and the characters felt distinct and rounded. Prince did an excellent job making the voices different and setting the tone.

Nice story

This story is very predictable, but I enjoyed it anyway. I appreciated that it did not have all the same anxiety inducing drama as a lot of lesfic does. The writing is good and that is something I really appreciate. The narration is ok, however the “Steph” voice was a little grating to me.

Emotionally intense

The chairacter's had district and believable voices and by the end you can really connect with what they were going through. I do thing there were a few parts that were filler and a little drawn out, but over all I would definitely recommend if you enjoy emotional depth in your books.

Love it

I have pretty much listened to all your audiobooks Jae, loved this one just as much. As I said in the post on Fb one thing I love is how you somehow connect all your stories. And unless your a fan you would not catch it. Anyhow I love it, great job to you Jae and of course the lovely Lori prince to always rock the microphone

great journey and performance

Jae usually comes up with great stories- this was no exception- loved the characters- laughter and tears in this one- i have used audible with a book i had already read and loved- the narrator was ok, but Lorie Prince must be in high demand! Changing voices and even making me blush during the love scenes- she was fantastic- hope to find her narrating another great romance-

A Laughing Matter

Comedian Stephanie Renshaw returns to La and needs a roommate to afford a great apartment near the comedy clubs. When a friend recommended Rae Coleman a Security Guard at the club it’s a chance. They just have to pretend to be in a relationship as the landlord only takes couples. A funny romance with touching stories. Great performance. Recommend.

Funny and sweet

I really love the way the characters are build, stories are sweet and heartwarming. I like how she portraits healthy relationships with a little bit of drama, even when there are some strong emotions involved they are always a part of the internal struggle of each character instead of just pure drama allowing a really satisfying growth and natural development of the relationship.
