***ARC Review*** 2B or not 2B? By Stephanie Witter


London 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."


2B or nt 2B had me hooked from the first page itself. Though I found the story really interesting it did have a few flaws. I liked both London & Byron but they both frustrated me at times. London because she was as if obsessed with her weight. I mean c'mon no matter what your beautiful accept that and move on. And Byron dude if you feel something for a girl its not the end of the world. It irritated me sometimes even to the point that I wish Elliott was the lead hero.

I enjoyed the banter between London & Byron and the chemistry was good however it needed a bit more building up. I feel that seduction is important in every love story but it felt kind of cut short to me. It also bothered me as to how could Byron be with other girls when he clearly had feeling for London.

The story could definitely have eased up on the sex part and focused on the fun part. I personally feel that In these kind of books the fun chemistry builds up the love chemistry. London was a good character. Her bold personality and not giving a damn about what anyone thinks of her made me really like her. My heart broke for byron though. For what he had gone through. Its nt easy to go through that and come out the same. I did adore the way they both loved their siblings more than anythng. Syd and Logan were amazing I would definitely want to know their story! And byron's pov would definitely help us undertand him and the story better.

Overall the story was fun and easy to read. I simply flew through the pages.
