Synopsis:
Madison Huntington is determined to live her dreams. That means getting out from under her family’s wealth and influence by saying no to the family business, her allowance, and her home. But on a teacher’s salary, the real world comes as a rude awakening—especially when she wakes up every morning on a colleague’s couch. To get a place of her own (without cockroaches, mold, or crime scene tape), Madison accepts a position as a roommaid. In exchange for free room and board, all she needs to do is keep her busy roommate’s penthouse clean and his dog company. So what if she’s never washed a dish in her life. She can figure this out, right?

Madison is pretty confident she can fake it well enough that Tyler Roth will never know the difference. The finance whiz is rich and privileged and navigates the same social circles as her parents—but to him she’s just a teacher in need of an apartment. He’s everything Madison has run from, but his kindhearted nature, stomach-fluttering smile, and unexpected insecurities only make her want to get closer. And Tyler is warming to the move.

Rewarding job. Perfect guy. Great future. With everything so right, what could go wrong? Madison is about to find out. (

What is a favorite compliment you have received on your writing?
There are so many compliments authors love, but I think my favorite ever was from a woman who had just lost her mother and she thanked me for writing a book that let her forget everything and eased her pain for a few hours. That’s always my hope—to write a fun, escapist book that makes all the crazy things happening around us a little easier to deal with. 
 
How are you similar to or different from Madison?
I’m very bad at crafts, just like Madison. I also have a thing for tall blue-eyed guys who are tech geniuses (like my husband). There was a time in my life that I considered becoming a teacher, but I’m not sure I would have had the patience, like she does. I’ve also had to deal with controlling, wealthy people in my life, and my reaction to them was very similar to hers. 
 
If Roommaid were made into a movie, who would you cast in the lead roles?
This question is so hard for me and I don’t know why. Other authors choose actors or models before they even begin writing, but not me! And I love movies so much that the idea I might choose badly usually keeps me from settling on anyone specific. But if I have to give an answer, I’m going to choose Chris Evans as Tyler and Candice King as Madison (but like, slightly younger versions of them).
 
What is your least favorite household chore?
Can I choose all of the above? I’m not kidding. I HATE cleaning with a fiery passion of a thousand suns going supernova. I never make my bed. Laundry piles up. My personal workspace is a total disaster with papers and articles and books. I only ever clean if 1) we’re approaching a Board of Health violation or 2) somebody is coming over (so please tell me if you’re stopping by. It’s best for both of us).
 
What is your guilty pleasure TV series?
Siesta Key. I don’t know why I like this series so much or why I watch it but I still tune in for every episode and wish that I had someone in real life that I could talk to about it! I’m also a big “Bachelor in Paradise” fan – to the point that I’ve met my favorites Ashley Iaconetti-Haibon and Jared Haibon in real life and we’re friendly. (I have her phone number and we occasionally text. Which is the coolest thing ever.)
 
What is something you've learned about yourself during the pandemic?
I’m a huge introvert and I’ve always joked that I could easily go into solitary confinement in prison as long as I had some books and pen and paper. The pandemic has proved this to be true. My poor extrovert husband has been champing at the bit to get outside the house and I’m totally fine. I could happily stay in my very messy home forever and never see the rest of the world again. I also learned that I could never, ever homeschool my kids. Boy, am I bad at it. Looks like I made the right choice in not becoming a teacher! 

Thanks to Sariah for visiting with us and to Kaye Publicity for sharing her book with our readers.
