THE HOUSE MATE
The Roommates Series
By Kendall Ryan
Release Day: April 17th
What’s sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who’s got his shit together.
Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company, and he’s conquered the professional world, but he’s never been lucky in love. Focusing so much time on his business and raising his daughter, adulting has come at the expense of his personal life.
His social skills are shit, his patience is shot, and at times, his temper runs hot.
The last thing he has time for is the recently single, too gorgeous for her own good young woman he hires to take care of his little girl. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and besides, there’s no way she’d be interested. But you know what they say about assumptions?
This is book 3 in the Roommates series, but each book can be read as a complete standalone as they all feature new couples to fall in love with.
It’s amazing how one’s life can change in an instant…how priorities and wants get turned upside down…how one decision can lead to a much different life than the one that was always envisioned.
And, Max Alexander, Kendall Ryan’s newest hero in her Roommates’ series, can attest to this very idea because with two knocks on his door, everything he thought he never wanted becomes the only things he knows he can’t live without.
At the beginning of The House Mate, Max goes from being a man solely focused on growing his business with no personal life whatsoever to a single dad who instantly falls in love with his daughter and hires a woman to be his live-in nanny – the same woman who he can’t seem to stop thinking about in not so boss/employee ways.
Addison Lane’s life has definitely not gone the way she had hoped and now that she’s lost her boyfriend, her job, and her home, she’s also lost her self-confidence and who she is as a 25 year old woman – one who should be living her life to the fullest, not worrying about whether or not she’s to blame for how things have turned out when she had no control over those actions whatsoever.
But what she does have control over is her attraction to her employer…at least she hopes she does because being a nanny may not be her dream job, but it’s one she adores because Dylan’s an amazing baby who becomes her world and putting her first is what’s important even if there’s a chance that Max can help mend her broken heart.
Max is definitely one of my favorite single dads; the way he jumps feet first into the role and learns as he goes without hesitating to step up makes him extremely swoonworthy. He may not have all of the answers and the situation may not be ideal, especially with how and why he was introduced to his one year old daughter, but she quickly becomes his world, which Kendall Ryan illustrates perfectly through Max’s words and actions.
It’s easy to see why Max willingly shakes up his life for his two new women; Dylan and Addison are so easy to love – Dylan because she is a precious little girl who loves unconditionally and Addison because she makes Max’s life easier and fuller all by just her presence and her loving ways.
Kendall Ryan’s Roommates’ series continues to offer readers’ sweet and sexy reads with just enough tension to keep them on their toes, ceaselessly turning pages to see if the hero and heroine can work things out, get past the few obstacles that stand in their way, and create a lasting connection that brings them a lifetime of love and happiness.
