What’s sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who’s got his shit together.
Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company, and he’s conquered the professional world, but he’s never been lucky in love. Focusing so much time on his business and raising his daughter, adulting has come at the expense of his personal life.
His social skills are shit, his patience is shot, and at times, his temper runs hot.
The last thing he has time for is the recently single, too gorgeous for her own good young woman he hires to take care of his little girl. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and besides, there’s no way she’d be interested. But you know what they say about assumptions?
This is book 3 in the Roommates series, but each book can be read as a complete standalone as they all feature new couples to fall in love with.
The House Mate is a total cuteness overload!! Max is sexy, Addison is beautiful, and Dylan (the baby) is absolutely adorable. I feel like this book was written with me in mind. I freaking LOVE this trope. Sexy single dad falls for the nanny with a cute baby thrown in for grins and giggles. That is my jam.
I love babies….in books. LOL This was the perfect story for me. It’s a light, quick, fun, and sexy little novel.
Here’s the breakdown: Max returns home from a date to find his ex waiting on him. She informs him that he’s a dad to 1 year old Dylan. She tells him she can’t manage parenting and leaves the baby. Obviously, we don’t care much for her 😀 Max tries his best, but realizes fairly soon he needs a nanny. Enter Addison. She has all the credentials and immediately forms a bond with Dylan. The only problem? Max is instantly attracted to her and has no idea how he’ll keep his hands to himself!
What I loved: Duh, the kid! LOL I don’t think I made that a secret. Kendall Ryan does a wonderful job writing scenes with Dylan and Addison!
The main characters. They understand the consequences of their attraction, but have an honest conversation about what they both want. I appreciated the level of communication between these two. Max was sometimes a bit dense or overly protective, but overall a very solid character. Addison was very well written.
The story and plot. Again, this trope really does it for me. I love everything about it. Things felt rushed towards the end, but overall a very solid read.
I rate it:
