Chloe needs a place to crash for the summer before college. When Chris offers, she moves in with him. It’s just for two months, no biggie. But soon she realizes she may have made a mistake. He's too perfect—a former snowboarder, laid-back and kind to boot. And he’s smitten with her. But she’s got trust issues and a relationship feels daunting. When he keeps trying to win her over, the temptation becomes overwhelming.Just as she gives in and decides it’s not worth fighting their emotions anymore, Chris reveals he’s made a stupid mistake which might ruin Chloe’s trust in him and tear them apart.
Chloe is a very lonely girl, her mother is busy with her new boyfriend and although she wasn't pictured as a bad mother, I wouldn't dream to have a mother as her. She needs a place to live for a few weeks and Chris offers. I liked Chris because he wasn't the typical boy, and he was the support Chloe needed. Their romance wasn't perfect and something was missing, but I liked it because it wasn't instalove.
I'm not sure if My Summer Roommate is young adult or new adult, the characters seemed too mature for their age, but it was a fun and light reading.
