Pandora Ann Phillips' life is just normal-crazy
Her mom's a psychic, her dad's mom is a snob, her mom's parental units are "too down to earth" and her best friends are newlyweds. Okay, so her best friends being newlyweds isn't really abnormal, but living with them in a cramped two-bedroom apartment definitely is. Sex, sex, sex is totally on their minds. Actually it's not only on their minds, but it's on the kitchen table, couch, on top of the washer...well, you get the picture.
Being a celibate (not by choice, mind you) full-time college student, and an almost full-time barista, Pandora can't afford to lose anymore sleep. So, she seeks out a new place to lay her head. Enter three "drool worthy" male models that are looking for a fourth roommate and they want her...and won't take no for an answer.
Hilarity ensues as Pandora's life turns completely upside down, and she begins to wonder if it will ever be the same again! (Goodreads)
This book was a bit of a mixed bag for me. There were elements I loved and found fun, like Dora's family (who aren't really as crazy as she makes out--seriously, visit my family's house during the holidays!), and her best friend who's a total lifesaver, and her married friends who were hilarious. But there were a few things that I was less than drawn in by--it took me a long time to be able to tell the roommates apart and they all blended together for a good chunk of the book (a good looking blend, but still!). And I never felt like we got to know any of them really well, which was frustrating. Also, I kind of hated how the book ended. The two main twists at the end were just a little over the top for me. Honestly, I found myself mostly drawn to the amazing apartment they lived in :) That probably says more about me than I should admit. Anyhow, this book has some seriously awesome potential, and was fun fluff, but I think it could have taken things so much further.
Have I mentioned that I hate posting reviews of books I didn't totally love? But, I'd rather be honest than not, so there you have it!
