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.

Note: This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

NA ReviewMy Thoughts

The Room Mate was originally slated as being a standalone contemporary romance by Kendall Ryan, but now she is going to make it into a series. I am so excited that this is now the first book in the new adult romance series, called Roommates. I loved The Room Mate, and it really shouldn’t be any surprise why. First, Kendall Ryan writes kick ass romances. Second, I love the whole brother/sister’s best friend trope. And third, I think the whole roommate trope is my favorite ever.  So when you combine all three, well, you have a match made in new adult heaven for me. And now I get to see more and more rommmate stories from Kendall. YES PLEASE!! There is just something about forced proximity in the roommates trope that adds a whole other layer to a romance. A layer that I can’t get enough of.

The Room Mate is the story of Cannon and Paige. I loved Paige, but I loved Cannon. I mean, what is not to love. He is a doctor in training, he is a great guy and he is a big nerd at heart! Sign me up. Right now. The whole him being ‘cursed’ thing totally cracked me up. And Paige totally cracked me up. I loved everything about their dynamic in the story. I know Paige is four years older than Cannon, because he is her best friends little brother, but it really didn’t bother me. And honestly Kendall Ryan writes such a fun  and sexy and engaging romance that I forgot about the age difference after a while. Cannon is smart and mature so it wasn’t an issue for me at all.

Cannon is a cutie patootie, and I was all about him in this book. He is so book boyfriend worthy. I loved him and Paige together Kendall Ryan just knows how to write romance gold. I always know that I am going to love her books. She has become an auto buy author for me. She is a genius as combining humor, sass, URST and romance, which are my favorite things in a contemporary romance. The Room Mate is an awesome start to series I am really excited about. This is another home run for Kendall. Now I need book 2, ASAP.
