THE ROOM MATE by Kendall Ryan
Release Day: January 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.

The heart is a complex organ, and in relationships, it seems to rule, forcing people to become unstable and reckless when it comes to matters of the heart, and when those feelings aren’t reciprocated, even when the lines have clearly been drawn, things can escalate from bad to worse quickly, making it impossible to remain clearheaded and vowing to do things differently for the sake of everyone.
Cannon Roth knows a thing or two about how the heart works, both in terms of relationships as well as functionality. He’d be the first to admit that the heart is a dangerous part of the human body because it forces people to feel and act in ways that their logical brains wouldn’t allow them to if they only thought things through without reacting.
As a doctor, Cannon understands how fragile the heart is, and as a single male, he’s been burned a time or two by women who feel with their whole hearts and end up turning his life upside down because of those feelings and the chaos it makes them reign down on him.
Cannon would be the first to tell you that lusting after his sister’s best friend and acting on what his heart and his body want him to is the last thing he should do, but when he becomes Paige’s roommate and sees the kind of woman she has turned into, his attraction and his need to have her forces him to throw away his rules, go behind his sister’s back, and consume himself with a woman who distracts him in a multitude of ways, making his path to success a little rocky and a whole lot more complicated.
Paige has always been the responsible one – the one who works hard and has no time for play because of it, and while Cannon has the same mentality about hard work, he also knows how to have fun and release the stresses of the day, which is exactly his prescription for Paige and the sexual tension that resonates between them.
There’s a lot on the line when Cannon becomes Paige’s roommate and they decide to test his theory about women’s unhealthy and instant infatuation with him because if things go wrong and get messy in a way that they’re unable to fix, it might destroy friendships, sibling bonds, and perhaps even wreak havoc on the most necessary organ in the human body, but it also just might be what both Cannon and Paige need to keep making lemonade.
I love friends to lovers’ stories, and Kendall Ryan’s newest release creates one with a twist that I haven’t found in many other texts. The fact that Paige is older than Cannon and she’s his sister’s best friend is an unusual plot line for me as a reader and that uniqueness really made for an enjoyable read.
Cannon Roth is one HAWT doctor and I would love for him to make a house call, so I can witness his impeccable bedside manner along with his filthy mouth, impressive stamina, and sexified physique;)
