I’ve loved him from afar.
Though most times he’s only a foot away.
I’m smart enough to know he’ll never be anyone’s forever.
He checks all the bad boy boxes. Tattoos. Check. Motorcycle. Check. Chip on his shoulder. Check check.
If he wasn’t my neighbor and friend I may have thrown myself at him. Okay, yeah. I wouldn’t. Because guys like Dylan don’t want a woman who writes kid’s math textbooks under him in bed. Instead, I pathetically savor morsels of moments where I have his sole attention.
That was until his archenemy moved in with me. Now suddenly, Dylan’s moving in too and warning off the first guy in a long time who’s showing me interest. Could he finally see me as more than a friend, or am I just a prize to win and show off to his enemy?


I can’t even begin to tell you how eager I was to get Rian and Dylan’s story, it’s been a huge anticipation since book 1 of The Rooftop Crew! It was everything I wanted and more in one of my most anticipated reads for 2020, but there were still some moments that could have used a little more.

Rian and Dylan have been skirting around their feelings since they first time. It was pretty obvious how Rian felt when it came to Dylan, but he almost seemed unreachable. And for the life of me, I was eager to know why Dylan never crossed that line of friendship when it came to Rian.

When it came to these two, everything fit so perfectly, in my mind, there was no reason for these two to be apart. In comes Jax to shake things up a bit and if it wasn’t for him, Rian and Dylan may have never been.

Another note on Jax, if you’ve fallen in love with a side character, wait until you read about Jax. He nearly stole the show for me. And when you do pick up The Rival Roomies, make sure you read the author’s note at the end. They talk about Jax a bit more 😉

So why the 4.5 stars? I can’t say I was completely on-board with Dylan’s reasons for not taking that extra hurdle with Rian, but it is what it is. Definitely looking forward to next installment in this series.

major thank you to the pr for the complimentary copy in consideration for a review. this does not affect my opinion of the book or review.
