From the New York Times best-selling author of The Love Hypothesis comes a new steamy, STEMinist novella….

A scientist should never cohabitate with her annoyingly hot nemesis – it leads to combustion.

Mara, Sadie, and Hannah are friends first, scientists always. Though their fields of study might take them to different corners of the world, they can all agree on this universal truth: when it comes to love and science, opposites attract and rivals make you burn….

As an environmental engineer, Mara knows all about the delicate nature of ecosystems. They require balance. And leaving the thermostat alone. And not stealing someone else’s food. And other rules Liam, her detestable big-oil lawyer of a roommate, knows nothing about. Okay, sure, technically she’s the interloper. Liam was already entrenched in his aunt’s house like some glowering grumpy giant when Mara moved in, with his big muscles and kissable mouth just sitting there on the couch tempting respectable scientists to the dark side…but Helena was her mentor and Mara’s not about to move out and give up her inheritance without a fight.

The problem is, living with someone means getting to know them. And the more Mara finds out about Liam, the harder it is to loathe him…and the easier it is to love him.

To listen to Sadie and Hannah’s stories, look for the novellas Stuck with You and Below Zero, coming soon, available first on audio!


Under One Roof had so many of my favorite tropes all wrapped up in one amazing book including
-forced proximity
-slow burn
-bonding over grief
-strong women in STEM

Ever since I read The Love Hypothesis by Ali last year I have been a huge fan. Under One Roof had so many of the same characteristics that I love in Ali’s writing including lots of humor, longing and the 🔥🔥🔥. While Under One Roof was a novella, it never felt rushed or forced. I got a good sense of who Liam and Mara were and I was rooting for these two right from the beginning!

Story: 5
Narration: 5
Overall: 5

I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook of Under One Roof. Once I started listening, I had a hard time stopping! The audiobook was narrated by Emma Wilder and I feel like she did a wonderful job with voicing Mara as well as Liam and all other secondary characters. I could always tell if Mara was happy/irritated/sad or mad. And I was laughing out loud on more than one occasion!

If you’re looking for a sweet and sexy romance featuring a woman in STEM I would highly recommend Under One Roof by Ali Hazelwood!
