Upon reading the goodreads summary, I thought this was going to be a cute little book about roommates. I could not have been more wrong, and it wasn’t my fault. This book is about way more than the summary lets on, and in a better way. Let me explain (without spoilers).
Cash Nicholson is recently divorced and moved to his grandfather’s house in Florida. He realizes how much he misses female companionship. She had puts an ad on the internet looking for a roommate. But Cash isn’t a typical guy – and he runs a very detailed background check on all the people that apply for the room.
Jade Robertson is a 22-year old single mother who is currently living on her friend’s couch with her 2-year old daughter. She needs a place to stay, and applies for the room. She and Cash start talking, and quickly become friends. After a month or so, Jade moves in and agrees to be a “maid” of sorts for Cash, since she has no income and nobody to watch her child.
Cash is gone from Monday morning until late Friday night. Jade finds herself getting lonely too, despite having a two year old. She believes Cash is a computer geek – he’s not.
There are some really heavy issues dealt with in this book, but I won’t spoil them. It was pretty obvious, though what it was wasn’t revealed until later in the book. Jade was an incredibly strong character. I loved Cash from the beginning, and Aria, the daughter, was adorable.
Give this book a try, it won’t disappoint.
