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 Play Mate is the second book in the roommates series by Kendall Ryan. The roommates series are each standalone contemporary romances. I loved book one, the Room Mate, and this book was every bit as good. 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 Play Mate is the story of Evie and Smith. Evie is a woman that knows what she wants and I loved that she was not afraid to go after it. Sure, I wouldn’t have had the balls to go after it quite the same way she did but I do give her major props. Smith is her older brother’s best friend, and her soon to be business partner. Can you see where this is going? And if you know me at all, you know that I love the brothers best friend trope. It was the same thing with the first book (except reverse the genders) and I loved it then and I love it now. Smith and Evie are explosive together. Holy cow!

Each of the books in the roommates series can be read as total standalones. And I really do mean that in this case. I didn’t notice any character overlap. Just a series of standalone novels that focus on the same trope. So if this is a trope that you enjoy, you will love any and all of the books! Kendall Ryan is a great writer. Her books are predictable in the way you want them to be. You know you are going to have characters with awesome chemistry, URST through the roof and witty and sassy banter. Everything I love. The Play Mate was a great read for me.
