To Moira “Mo” Rossi, the world is full of sunshine, goodness, and happily ever afters—so of course she figures finding the perfect roomie will be easy. But after four creepos who ask if benefits come with the room and one woman who claims she’s a vampire, Mo is officially desperate. So what if the guy she agrees to on paper ends up being the Derrick Downer to her Sally Sunshine in person? She’s the queen of making lemonade.

August Porter expected his new roommate Mo to be like him—neat, practical, and oh yeah: male. Not the outrageous hippie with more stars in her eyes than there are in the sky. She’s infuriating, exasperating, his exact opposite in every possible way...and the bright ray of sunshine he didn’t even realize his gray world was missing. Suddenly, falling into bed with his roommate isn’t the worst idea he’s ever heard. Just falling in love with her is.

But one of them is keeping a secret that could turn their opposite attraction into utter disaster.

“The Roommate Problem is such a cute read. I couldn't get enough of Moira and August. I love them together so much. I really couldn't put this one down and was left with a huge smile on my face.” -Becky W., Goodreads

“Mariah Ankenman wrote a fun, engaging, heartwarming rom com for us to enjoy.” -Sexy Rom Com Reader

“I absolutely loved this book. The writing was phenomenal and the tension was perfect. This is the first book I’ve read from this author and i will definitely be reading more of hers!!” -Alisha B., NetGalley

“I love a slightly grumpy, sexy hero! Honestly, August isn’t so much grumpy as he is a little damaged and very guarded. Thankfully, Moira is the perfect tonic for all of August’s wounds. This is a sexy and sweet romance and a great way to finish up this series. I enjoyed it!” -Jamesia G., Goodreads

“I'm a sucker for a good Rom-Com and The Roommate Problem delivered!! It hit me right in the feels. August Porter is dreamy as heck, Mo is adorably quirky and the tension between them can be cut with a knife.” -Chantal W., Goodreads

“A roommate's opposites-attract romance that's fast-paced and a quick feel-good romantic comedy.” -Melissa B., Goodreads

Ankenman has such a swoon-worthy was with words and develops delightful, lighthearted romantic comedies that are just what the doctor ordered in today’s current climate. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for something lighthearted and romantic to while away a lazy summer day. It’s fun, full of life, and brings more than its fair share of laughter to the table.” -Evie D., Goodreads

Oh, these two were a fun pair. They couldn't be more opposite: he's grumpy, she sunshine all the time, he likes all things green, she loves anything with carbs, he likes tidy, she's messy.

The Roommate Problem is the third book in the Mile High Happiness series by Mariah Ankenman.

By Emmie August 08, 2020

So this is the third in the Mile High Happiness series but can be read as a standalone. I recommend reading the other two just because they’re amazing and they give you a bit more understanding of Mo’s best friend’s and their relationships.

I absolutely loved this book, just as much as I loved The B ...more

Yes! After The Best Man Problem I was keeping an eye out for the next book of Mariah Ankenman. Because I really wanted to see Mo's story.

“The Roommate Problem” is the third, and sadly last, in the Mile High Happiness trilogy. I was sorry to see it end, but thrilled to finally read Mo’s story.

The Roommate Problem!

This book was a fast, cute read. The premise is a good standard, but the characters are what make this book fun. I’ve been reading a number of new to me authors, and I’m finding a lot of them are writing in a style that looks like a manual. This author, writes in a style that p ...more

Even though The Roommate Problem is the third book in the Mile High Happiness series, it was the first book in the series that I read.
