Today is my stop during the blitz for The Room Mate (Roommates #1) by Kendall Ryan! I share my review with you today!

The Room MateTitle: The Room Mate
Author: Kendall Ryan
Series: Roommates #1
Rating: 4 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance

The last time I saw my best friendโ€™s younger brother, he was a geek wearing braces. But when Cannon shows up to crash in my spare room, I get a swift reality check.

Now twenty-four, heโ€™s broad shouldered and masculine, and so sinfully sexy, I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to enjoy. At six-foot-something with lean muscles hiding under his T-shirt, a deep sexy voice, and full lips that pull into a smirk when he studies me, heโ€™s pure temptation.

Fresh out of a messy breakup, he doesnโ€™t want any entanglements. But I can resist, right?

Iโ€™m holding strong until the third night of our new arrangement when we get drunk and he confesses his biggest secret of all: heโ€™s cursed when it comes to sex. Apparently heโ€™s a god in bed, and women instantly fall in love with him.

Iโ€™m calling bullshit. In fact, Iโ€™m going to prove him wrong, and if I rack up a few much-needed orgasms in the process, all the better.

Thereโ€™s no way Iโ€™m going to fall in love with Cannon. But once we startโ€ฆI realize betting against him may have been the biggest mistake of my life.

My Review:
Cannon and Paige’s romance is sweet, sexy, and chock-full of laugh out loud moments and scorching hot chemistry. This is Kendall Ryan at her best!

This was a really brilliant, fun, flirty, fast read and I loved it!

Cannon is a great combination of serious and sexy and did I mention he is ridiculously hot? (He’s ridiculously hot!!!!) Paige was a woman after my own heart. I was Head of HR in a previous lifetime so Paige’s chosen career as a HR Manager really resonated with me. Kendall did a stellar job with her character and I loved how calm and controlled she was and I loved the scene the first night Cannon moved in when she asked him questions and expressed interest in him rather than talking about herself. Her personality was very true to the job she performed and we all take parts of our work home with us. She was no walk over and she had no trouble speaking her mind or going for what she wanted even if she had reservations.

Allie was a terrible friend and sister and thank God she redeemed herself at the end.

The only reason this is four-star rather than a five-star review is that I felt the scene with Maggie was inserted purely as a plot device and it was too transparent to be accepted with any level of credibility. I wish this had been interwoven through the story and there were ample opportunities to keep this subplot going which would have given it authenticity and added an extra layer of dept to the book. Other than that, though, I adored it and it’s one of my fav KR reads.

Thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for providing an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
