Molly Myers is just your average groupie next door.
The rock star whose posters cover her bedroom wall is banging her roommate right on the other side of it. Even for Molly, reigning queen of embarrassing moments, the situation is epically awkward. Every thump of the headboard is just one more reminder that the lead singers of famous bands don’t date bumbling shy girls too anxious to leave their own rooms.
JP Bouchard-Guindon wasn’t looking for Molly’s room when he accidentally burst through the door, but the wild-haired girl lying there in her underwear was certainly worth the detour.
As the keyboardist for Montreal’s latest indie rock sensation, JP has met his fair share of fangirls. He’s always ready to throw up some finger guns for a photo. What he’s not ready for is the way skittish, wide-eyed Molly Myers gets stuck inside his head.
A practical joker and a social recluse are the last people anyone expects a connection between. She’s silence aching for a voice, and he’s sound with a craving for quiet. Their differences will either pull them together, or fracture their worlds when they push them apart.
You know what they say: if you don’t have a weird roommate, you are the weird roommate.
I tip the contents of my laundry basket out on my bed and reach to turn up the volume on my speakers. My ‘Putting Clothes Away’ playlist—which features a lot of Adam Levine—is currently blasting out of the surround system. Along with my vintage record player, the speaker set is probably the only thing of value in my tiny, stuffy, and currently sweltering bedroom.
“Try to tell you no, ‘cause I’m busy folding up this dress. Try to tell you stop, ‘cause my laundry is all still a mess.”
The towel starts slipping off my head as I nod along to the beat of my improvised lyrics. I straighten it back in place and glance at the rest of my outfit—a ribbed green tank top, faded pink I’m-Down-To-My-Last-Pair-And-Desperate granny panties, and a Korean cloth face mask complete with nostril holes that makes me look like Voldemort had drunk sex with a mannequin.
Yeah, no way I’m the weird roommate.
Wow! The Sherbrooke Station series just keeps getting better and better. In book 3 we get down with the inner workings of JP’s mind. And what a jumbled mind it is. JP struggles with a secret that he doesn’t want to let others know about. He is constantly on the go and never focuses on one girl for long. That is until he meets Stephanié’s roommate.
Molly is Ms. Introvert. She gets embarrassed easily and tends to not socialize with anyone. She is withdrawn and bunny like. She scares easily. She even has trouble communicating with her roommate of a year. She barely speaks and hides in her room. But one day when a member of her favorite band walks in on her in her granny panties, she finds herself speaking.
There is something about JP that Molly likes. She is comfortable around him and seems to have no trouble talking to him. It is like he understands her. He gets her. But she knows she is not on his level. Come on…he is a sex god rock star! He will never be interested in her as more than friends right?!
There is something about Molly and JP can’t get enough. He thinks about her all the time. Even the music in his head fills with thoughts of her. What is it about Molly that pulls him. Maybe because she is a light in a dark room. She gets him. It is like he can just be him and she listens when no one else will.
Will these two work out what it is and just go with the flow?
I tell you each of these stories gets better and better. Wow! Just Wow! I loved JP’s story. And his French…oh la la! He is a very intelligent person with a unique mind, that is always moving like cogs in a clock. He has all this energy and talent. He is special. Truly amazing.
Molly is a sweet girl. I feel her pain sometimes. Her awkwardness is a challenge for her, but she is a very determined person. I feel that JP really opens her mind up and challenges her shyness. These two people were made for each other. There is no doubt in my mind.
This story really reaches down into your soul. I can’t tell you how many times I cried with this one. Their story was an amazing journey and I was so glad to follow along. Katia Rose is an amazing author. The way she writes her characters is truly awe inspiring. You can’t help but fall in love with these characters. Each book has it’s deep story to tell with intense emotions that will rip you to shreds. Truly amazing. I cannot express enough how much I love this series. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next. I give this story a million stars. 😉

Katia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain. She prefers her romance served steamy with a side of smart, and is a sucker for quirky characters. A habit of jetting off to distant countries means she’s rarely in one place for very long, but she calls the frigid northland that is Canada home.
