Release Blitz and Review: The Rival Roomies by Piper Rayne

Release Date: May 12

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?

Review by Jen Skewes

I loved this book.  I devoured it in one sitting.  I am a huge fan of this series, but the was the couple that I was waiting for.  so far the is my fave of the series.  Piper Rayne did not disappoint when it came to Rian and Dylans's story!

Rian as loved Dylan from afar.  They are good friends, but she knows that they can never be anything more than that.  He is a bad boy with tattoos and she is the last person that he would want in his bed.  In her mind she is so far from his the that she just loves him from afar and takes the little moments she has with him as friends, accepting that, that's al it will be.  

When an old friend of Dylan and Knox's comes to town to stay for a while, he becomes Rian's new roommate, which leads to Dylan as her third roommate.  Dylan does not want her living with a guy that she doesn't know all bu herself, but what we come to find is that there is so much more to him moving in.  Dylan is a hard guy to get to now.  He keeps his feelings to himself and his past even closer.  He's closed off when it comes to those two issues.  He knows that his feelings for Rian is beyond friendship, but he's too afraid of losing her to cross that line.  He needs to get his head out of his ass and finally admit to her how he feels.  And in doing so he needs to push aside his fear of what-ifs.  Can he really let go and give her all of him?

I loved the two of them together.  If you love their friendship in the first two books then you will fall in love with them as a couple.  I loved how perfectly they fit together.  How easy it is for them to be together, as friends and lovers.  Everything about them and their relationship just seemed so natural.  You cold feel the love that they both had for each there.  

What I loved the most about this book is getting to see who Dylan and Rian really are.  We find out why Dylan is so closed off and why he is so afraid of  love.  His past truly broke my heart but at the same time seeing how far he has come put it back together.  

We get to see a different side of Riann, the one where she is stronger than you think.  She seems happy and content with her life but we see more of her relationship with her parents and how that has not only affected her throughout her life but as some influence on where she is today.  I as not a fan of her parents at all but seeing the strong and independent Rian stick up for herself just put a smile on my face.  

I love the friendships in this series, and we definitely get to see more of the characters who we have love.  It feels like you are a part of their inner circle. The addition of Jax to this group of friends was well done!! I enjoyed the tension that it bought and how it all worked out in the end.  I am looking forward to the remaining books in this series and hoping that Jax gets his story as well.
