But Caitlyn needs help with the  bills so she lets Ben move in. As time goes on Ben finds he is attracted to Caitlyn but he is now a no relationship kind of guy after the breakup with Olivia.

I like this story . Didn’t like Ben at all at first . Why did Ben get drunk if he knew he had a date with someone he had yet to  meet?  I did like Ben as time went on. I felt bad for Caitlyn when she was on the date and then to find he was to be her roommate. Caitlyn was sweet and I liked her character a lot and she really did have some good friends. Ben’s friend Gregory definitely added to the story also. This was a fun read. Not a  lot of drama involved especially after Caitlyn got to know Ben better . they really did make a sweet couple. I liked all the characters a  lot and the ins and outs of this story as well as the plot and i recommend.
