Soren Decker. He’s the epitome of the “bad boy, good man” persona. The best of both worlds. The worst of them too. He’s the type of guy most girls wouldn’t mind sharing a confined space with, except my new roommate isn’t all swagger and chiseled abs.
He’s bossy. Messy. Cocky. Infuriating. Doesn’t believe in personal space. Has no qualms about roaming the apartment with a loincloth-sized towel cinched around his waist. Seems under the delusion he’s my personal protector (refer back to infuriating). He plays college baseball and holds down a part-time job—I don’t know where he finds the time to get on my nerves.
We have nothing in common . . . except our attraction to one another. And in six hundred square feet of shared space, the tension only has so much room to grow before one of us gives in to temptation. But really, what chance do a couple of young kids chasing their dreams in the big city have of making it?
Since Soren claims I know squat about sports (he might have a semi-point), here’s a stat for him—one in a million. That’s our odds.

If Hayden and Soren weren’t so down to earth, and awesome, I could totally hate them. Hayden is an upcoming supermodel, quickly becoming a big name. While Soren is one game away from being a professional baseball player.
Though currently still living in a crappy studio apartment. The attraction is there from the beginning, but still I loved the gradual pace between them. From roommates to friends, to…
Honestly Soren is a hoot. His humor is on point, and I love his romantic streak. He’s a hard worker, a family man, and has a natural charm about him that’s irresistible.
Hayden’s life is going exactly as she wants, and as they say “she’s going places.” Though she never gets a big ego, and has a joy for life that’s likeable.
The natural flow between Hayden and Soren makes you almost miss what is going on. There is no high drama, but realistic issues, and believable love.
I recommend Roommates With Benefits to anyone looking for a swooning romance, with likeable characters, and wanting a HAE in New York.
