Review: The Room Mate (Roommates #1) by Kendall Ryan

****4 Stars****

Paige takes in her best friend's younger brother when he needs a temporary place to stay when a psycho ex does a number on his apartment. Cannon is training to be a doctor and has a bright future ahead. He's determined not to let women get in the way of his career plans but a spanner is thrown in the works when he moves in with Paige, the girl of his teenage fantasies, his big sister's best friend.

I enjoyed this book, I liked the premise of the story, I love the friends to lovers and childhood crush story lines. This is a quick read and a sweet story with just enough angst thrown in to keep you hooked. I didn't love this book but I did really like it, the only thing that held it back for me was the dialogue between the two main characters. Occasionally the dialogue during the sexy times was a little odd, it went a little too far for me. Some of the things Cannon came out with didn't work for me, it made the scene seem a little uncomfortable. Don't get me wrong he was super sweet and hella sexy most of the time, just the odd thing that came out of his mouth made me think "Wait, did he just say that?". This was the only thing that held me back from giving this book a 5 star rating. Other than that, and it's definitely a personal opinion and probably not one shared by the majority, this book is a great read and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a quick read that although short doesn't scrimp on the quality of the story.

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.

THE ROOM MATE is a full-length standalone romance.
