◄◄ Blurb ►►

The last time I saw my best friend’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, he’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, he’s pure temptation. 

Fresh out of a messy breakup, he doesn’t want any entanglements. But I can resist, right? 

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

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

There’s no way I’m going to fall in love with Cannon. But once we start…I realize betting against him may have been the biggest mistake of my life.

◄◄ My Thoughts ►►

The Room Mate is so much more than you expect it to be.  It’s sweet, sexy, and has an amazing depth of character that’s utterly refreshing!

The main characters aren’t perfect, but I absolutely loved them both.  Their connection is based on past history and not just lust.  It was so easy to get caught up in their story and root for their relationship.


Cannon Roth has a depth of character that is unexpectedly refreshing.  He’s more than your requisite hot-guy alpha.  Of course, he has plenty of those cocky hot-guy moments, but he’s caring and considerate as well.  But most impressive of all is the fact that he actually comes from a very modest background.  He’s focused and career-minded (most of the time).  His main concern is to position himself to take care of his mom and sister.  I really appreciated that additional complexity in this character.

The writing and plotline are both superb.  I was sucked in after the very first paragraph and it just got better from there.  Kendall Ryan really brought it with this new release.  She delivers a sexy and satisfying romance that is sure to please.  I highly recommend it!

I rate it: four-stars
