I was intrigued by the plot - three hot model roommates ;-) - and decided to give this book a try.
(Pan)Dora's character was sweet and the setting very cool (a warehouse turned into exclusive flats). I also liked Dora's best gay friend Jeff as well as her crazy family but unfortunately the characterization of her roommates was very shallow and not well elaborated. I would have been very nice to add more depth to their characters (and too the story, too).
The story is mostly told from Dora's viewpoint so you can easily identify with her but there were some parts written from one of her roomie's perspective. I absolutely disliked these parts as they appeared rather creepy and didn't fit any of my impressions of them (fortunately, these parts are rare...)
Nevertheless, I quite enjoyed reading this novel to see what college student Dora is going through: working, preparing for final exams, living together with three models plus her best friends, dealing with her own family and exploring her own feelings.
Without giving too much away, I can say that the plot is not very realistic and tends to be a little too dramatic but I liked the fast story telling. The book was never boring and a lot of things happen in the course of the story though if you're looking for a steamy novel, you might be disappointed.
Overall, a nice read!
