Clam Jam by R.C. Boldt – Review

reviewClam Jam


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.
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.
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.



I loved this book. Laugh out loud funny, sexy, and a whole lot of fun to read.

My Thoughts

I don’t even know where to start with this book. First of all I was like this the entire time reading:

Getting strange looks from the people around me like this:

But it was completely worth it. I loved every second of this book. Aside from the hilarity of it there was so much heart and you really felt connected to Ry and Maggie. These two were some of my all time favorite characters and I know I will be reading this over and over again.

Notable Quotes

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.

Hello, my name is Maggie Finegan, and I’m mega lame.
Do they even have support groups for that?

I had spotted Maggie in the Starbucks around the corner from my office building. But she was always with a guy whom I assumed to be her fiance. And something about her captivated me.

I’ve just gone to all this trouble to try to make myself as pretty as possible for a guy. But not just any guy. For my roommate. For my gay roommate.

I want a guy who will love me even when I have no makeup on and still tell me and believe that I’m beautiful.
