The Room Mate by Kendall Ryan: Release Blitz + Double Review


Title:  The Room Mate
Series:  Standalone
Author: Kendall Ryan
Publish Date: 1/24/2017  

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.

So, this is the very first book I have ever read by Kendall Ryan and holy MOSES!! This will NOT be my last. This book was amazing!! Forbidden romances are one of my favorite books to read. 

Paige is set in her ways. She is the typical workaholic and knows what she wants out of life. That is until her best friend’s little brother needs a place to stay while he is finishing his last year of med school. Cannon isn’t the little nerd she grew up with. Now he’s muscular, tall and sexy as hell. She has great self-control until Cannon leaks a little secret. Can she keep it together??

This book had me hooked from the very beginning. I loved the angst and lust throughout the book. It got pretty hot, but the story had my heart. It was light (for the most part) and fun. I loved the drama inside this story. It kinda broke my heart in places but WOW!! This is a read it all in one night kind of book! I am impatiently waiting for the next one!!!

Whoa buddy!!! Alert this book is so hot, it should come with a caution label. Paige and Cannon are so hot, it melted my phone. 
This story follows Paige and Cannon, childhood friends by association. Paige is Cannon's sister's best friend and he needs a place to crash until he finishes medical school and can move on. Things don't always go as planned. Keeping their hands off each other prove to be hard now that they are living in a small space together. 

*Paige is awesome. I like her. I have a thing for strong women characters, women who know what they want and go for it. That's exactly what Ms. Ryan gave us in Paige. There are several instances where Paige wanted Cannon and she went for it. She only hem-hawed once, so it wasn't annoying to witness that insecurity.  I love it when an author can capture the complexities of womanhood. Yes we can be insecure. No that doesn't mean whinny and wilty. 
*Cannon is sex. Point blank period. He approaches life with a simple view, career first, sex second, love... maybe. I admire his work ethic and I understand his hustle so his "closed off" nature didn't bother me any.  The best thing about Cannon is his magic penis. You read that right, he has a magic penis!!! Oh happy day!!! 
This penis makes girls fall in love and that's not what he wants. 

I have to say, I've read a lot of books with a lot of sexy in them. Very few books invoke one handed reading. If you're like me and you're down withe one handed reading, then this book is for you. I've highlighted so many passages in this book its almost depraved. 
Passages that got you all hot and bothered like: "Fuck", Cannon cursed under his breath. "You're squeezing me so tight. Not going to last..."


" I'd be the kind of boyfriend who held your hair back while you blew me." 
Then passages that made you smile like, " Dick, good dick, made women crazy. It turned women's hearts into a frenzied mess causing them to declare their undying love and latch on. I couldn't continue to unleash that kind of chaos." 

Don't you wanna read it now. Seriously, the whole book is like this. 

The only thing that stopped this book from being a perfect 5 is that I needed more ex-girlfriend drama, the little bit that we got was just a tease. Great book over all. Just be careful, you may find your self perusing Craigslist for hot room mates afterwards. <wink>
