~ 2B or Not 2B by Stephanie Witter Review ~

81BzA9zPvHL._SL1500_SynopsisLondon Reed is on the hunt for a place to live before the start of her second year in college. Either she is successful and can enjoy her student life without the pressure of her parents breathing down her neck, or she goes back home and clashes with her parents.

Because London doesn’t have a filter.

”You’re a weird one, aren’t you?”

She basically tells it as she sees it. So when she meets the hunky and scarred guy who lives in apartment 2B, the last apartment on her exhausting list, she’s sure to bring some crazy in his life.

But he’s determined to not take a girl for a roommate.

“I have nothing against you, but I don’t see this working for me.”

London doesn’t give up that easily and makes a deal with him. If she makes it for two months, she’s in for the whole year. If not, then she leaves to never contact him again.

Easy, right? Not so much.

“You should have told me that you wanted me to be all over you.”

When a guy and a girl live under the same roof, it’s bound to complicate things. Between banters, heady games of seduction, innuendos and insecurities revealed, the life in apartment 2B isn’t simple, and a few slips in their relationship doesn’t help the matter.

“You’re driving me completely nuts. That’s my fucking problem.”

christie review4 and a half stars

This was the second book I have read by Witter. It was quite different from the first one I read by her, Patch Up. 2B or Not 2B was a romantic comedy that involved much lighter subject matter. However, it was just as good as Patch Up.

London is a college student looking for a roommate. She doesn’t want to live in a dorm, and she definitely doesn’t want to live with her parents. She shows up at Byron’s apartment after seeing his ad for a roommate. From this first meeting, there are FIREWORKS!!! Their sexual chemistry and attraction is off the charts! Of course, they try denying their lustful feelings for each other since they are living together. As they spend more time together, they actually begin to like each other as individuals, but will they be able to continue to resist each other?

I fell in love with both characters. Byron can be such a jerk at times, but he does show his caring side occasionally. And, if you were to look up the meaning of feisty in the dictionary, you would find London’s picture. This girl is a spitfire and doesn’t put up with Byron’s crap. What he shovels out, she throws right back in his face! The characters are very well-developed. Witter makes these characters multi-dimensional. You see the outer sarcastic side of them, yet they both have some sadness underneath that façade. I also liked the secondary characters as well such as both of their families. They have just as much character as London and Byron. The romance builds slowly, almost at a torturous pace. You think, “Yes, Yes, they are finally going to give in.” Then, Witter throws ice water in your face. But, it works and works brilliantly. So, do they do the deed? You will have to one-click it to find out!

Stephanie Witter is a young writer with heaps of talent. She can write totally different stories yet be successful at it. She has written a angst-filled book, Patch Up. Now, she has followed it up with one of my favorite romantic comedies. Both books were fantastic. If you haven’t read anything by her, you really should give her a try. You won’t be disappointed.

Abou the author6982524Stephanie Witter is a French dreamer. She started learning English at three, and fell in love with the language. Always with a book, or two close by, she started reading in English when she couldn’t wait any longer for Harry Potter to be translated in French. After a while, reading wasn’t enough. She soon started writing Young Adult and New Adult Contemporary novels filled with angst, love, hope, drama and a touch of fun. PATCH UP is her first New Adult Contemporary novel.

Synopsis

Bronagh Murphy has been through a lot over the past few years, a hell of a lot, so when her 21st birthday rolls around all she wants to do is relax and spend the day with her family. Quietly.

 

Her boyfriend, Dominic Slater, doesn’t do relaxed or quiet. He never has, and he never will. He plans out a day for Bronagh that is both romantic, and exciting. However, Dominic’s version of exciting is very different to Bronagh’s as she will soon find out.

 

When things take a turn for the worst, and a bad altercation leaves Dominic once again fighting for his girl, Bronagh will have to decide once and for all if she will fight in Dominic’s corner or walk away and never look back.

 

Bronagh loves Dominic, and what Bronagh loves, Bronagh protects.

Synopsis

Keela Daley is the black sheep of her family. She has always come second to her younger cousin Micah. Even in the eyes of her mother, Micah shone bright, and Keela faded to black. Now, in adulthood, Micah is a bride-to-be and the spotlight is solely on her. Keela is a low priority…or so she thinks.
 

 Alec Slater is a bachelor, never one to bed the same woman, or man, twice. He is a free agent who does what he pleases and answers to no one; that is until a fiery Irish redhead with a temper to match her hair colour knocks him on his arse. Literally.

She hates to admit it, but Keela needs a favour from the cocky Slater brother, a huge favour. She needs him to not only escort her to Micah’s wedding, but to also pose as her boyfriend. Alec agrees to help Keela, but has certain conditions for her to abide by. He wants her body and plans to have it before anyone can say I do.

What he doesn’t plan on is losing his heart as well as the possibility of losing his family when someone from his past threatens his future.

Alec owns Keela, and what Alec owns, Alec keeps.
