Clam Jam by RC Boldt!!!

       


 

Synopsis

“Clam Jam”   Definition: the female equivalent of a cock block.   Example: You’re chatting with a guy you’re interested in and your friend comes along and lays claim to him.  

Maggie   That’s my life—except it’s worse. My friend who keeps “jamming” me is my gay roommate and if that isn’t a W.T.F. moment, I’m not sure what is.   Fact: He went home with three—yes, three—of the guys I had been so sure were into me.   Fact: He’s really pissing me off. I mean, hello? I’m trying to get back in the saddle, but I’ll never manage to get a boyfriend before the age of fifty if he keeps this up.   Fact: Secretly, I wonder what it would be like if he weren’t gay. Why do all the hot, sweet, tender-hearted guys have to be gay?   Fact: My gay-dar needs a serious tune-up.  

Ry   The day I interviewed for the room to rent, everything changed. I knew I had met “the girl”, except there was one small problem: she didn’t want anything to do with men. I recognized a top-notch force field when I saw one. She’d been burned badly and didn’t want to deal with a heterosexual guy as a roommate. I could’ve turned around and found another place to live, but I wanted to live there—with her.   So I had to go “undercover”.   Fact: I’m in love with my roommate.   Fact: I’m a likely candidate for carpal tunnel surgery since all the action I’ve had for the past year has been my hand.   Fact: She’s going to hate me if I come clean now.   Fact: I’m not giving up. Which means, I’ll just have to continue to run defense until I figure out a way to get Maggie to see the “real” me.   The me that loves her.   The me that would never do her wrong.   Until then, I’ll keep running off every guy who shows any interest.   Until then, I’ll continue to Clam Jam.

Darra's Review: 

I thought when you have a funny title to your book, it must have some comedy to it. Funny, check. Cute, check. Sweet, check. I loved Ry. He should be on one of my favorite lists. It is ridiculous what he goes through to keep her away from other guys. And if I was Maggie, I would be frustrated as well. How could he keep this up for so long?! I wanted a HEA for Maggie after that douche of an ex did that to her. Hence the reason why she did not want a straight man living with her. Only if she knew. Thank god she didn't so we could read how awesome Ry is for her.
They deserved each other. Although Maggie was not on the band wagon when she found out. I would have been all over him! He made me sigh(swoon) sometimes. Also, Ry's best friend was hilarious too.

Loved the book because it was just a fun read. No intensity and darkness. This is a book to read when you are in a funk and need a laugh.

I rate the book a 4.5 out of 5. 

Sunny's Review: 

So Darra picked this book for us totally based on the title. I can say that we were not disappointed. This book was really funny and I enjoyed it. It was a nice easy read and I finished it in a day. I like the characters. Maggie is looking for a roommate and does not want to room with a woman or straight man. Ry decides on the spot to tell Maggie that he is gay and their friendship begins. Ry spends the majority of his time getting to know Maggie and they end up best friends. Maggie believes Ry’s lie and ends up trusting him more than pretty much anyone. As the year goes along, Ry falls more and more for Maggie and when she decides that she is ready to date again he has to come up with a way to clam jam her. Maggie cannot figure out why all the guys she is interested in fall for Ry or end up leaving with no explanation. The lengths that Ry goes to in order to keep Maggie himself are pretty funny.

Again, this book is an easy read and I loved it. I am giving it 4.5 stars out of 5. Go get it if you want a funny and sweet book.
