I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure if my heart was going to survive this one. I’ve been excited to read more about Naomi since the moment she was introduced in The Roommate and then! Then to be paired with an adorably awkward and face-fanningly hot rabbi, I mean come on. I couldn’t resist.
I’m still in awe that The Roommate is Rosie Danan’s debut because wow! She packed so much punch in this story, from Clara coming into her own as she faces the world outside of academia and her influential family’s bubble to she and Josh working together to create something for the female gaze, focused solely on female pleasure.
