"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. 


REVIEW

I'd been dying to get my hands on this book ever since I read the blurb!Just look at the title and the summary and tell me it doesn't make you laugh!Lol!Doesn't it make you curious?You should definitely read it! :D

Maggie has just found out that her fiance had been cheating on her, so after kicking him out of her apartment she is now in search for a roommate.And she doesn't want to room with a woman or a straight man that she could be attracted to.She has sworn off men for a while, so when she finds out that a prospective candidate who checks off all the boxes for a perfect roommate is "gay", she is delighted!But the only problem with Ry could be the fact that she is attracted to him even though he is gay.And though they soon become close friends, now that she is ready to get back into dating, he seems to be popping up everywhere and clam-jamming her!

Ry has been infatuated with Maggie for a long time from afar, even before they met.And now that fate has given him an opportunity to get close to her, he will do anything for a chance with the girl of his dreams!Even pretend to be gay, with a boyfriend!Lolol!!
Except he keeps wimping out at every turn and doesn't confess the truth.And when Maggie starts going on dates, he has no option but to sabotage them!
What's a girl to do when she is being clam-jammed by her own roomie and best friend?And how will Ry win over Maggie after such a big lie?
This book had me laughing at every page.Maggie and Ry were perfect for each other.But just a little too stupid and dumb at times.Ry's desire for Maggie is kinda insta-lovish, but I guess it works for some people.Love at first sight does exist after all!
Maggie was so cute and little oblivious at times!The ways Ry ruined her dates were so funny!LMAO!
He either intimidated them or made them fall in love with him!He went great lengths for Maggie, but kept digging a deeper hole for himself by not admitting the truth to her.
Maggie and Ry's best friends were equally amazing!
So, if you're looking for a sweet rom-com that will have you laughing at every turn, then you should definitely give this one a try!You'll love it! :)


EXCERPT
“But she doesn’t want anything to do with men, Ry. What are you going to do? Just casually bring it up one morning that you’re actually hetero?” He scoffs, shaking his head at me. “I see that going over real well.”
“I haven’t gotten that far but, this way, I can get to know her without all that shit getting in the way. The whole nervousness, the whole showing the other person your best at all times until you’re really committed and then it all comes out.”
“And you’re going to do this by being dishonest from the get-go.”
Running my hands down my face, I let out a frustrated groan. “What was my other option? To let her go, to never have an opportunity to get to know her—to never get to be her friend, at the very least—without her feeling like I have any ulterior motives—”
“Which you do.”
“—and be faced with the possibility of me being too late and another guy getting to her when she decides she’s ready to start dating again?”
“I’d like to go on record and say that you’ve been watching too many damn chick flicks.”
“Whatever.”
He’s silent for a moment, staring at me before his lips twitch, slowly forming a smirk. “So how long have we been together, love muffin?”
The breath I’ve been holding in comes out in a slow exhale. “For a while.” Holding up a finger, I add, “But we have an ‘open’ relationship.”
His eyebrows arch at that. “Why, you little player, you. Won’t commit to being monogamous, huh?” He tips his beer to his lips, takes a swig, and grins. “I bet I can convince you to be mine within a few months tops, pookie bear.”
I make a face, scoffing, “Not likely.”
He waves a hand dismissively. “You’ll be putting out before long. Mark my words.”
“You’re not right.” I laugh, shaking my head at him.
“You’re the one who’s pretending to be gay.”
“Point taken.”
We both take a swig of beer and fall silent for a moment before Jack finally speaks.
“Can’t say that I’ve ever pretended to be someone’s gay lover before.” His face stretches into a wide, toothy grin.
And, just like that, my best friend is officially involved in my game plan. All for the sake of a woman I’m convinced is “the one.”
