*The Room Mate*
The Room Mate is a perfect blend of friends to lovers romance with a healthy dose of forbidden love (best friend's little brother). Cannon and Paige have known each other since childhood, but things take a steamy and emotional turn once they unexpectedly begin living together. This is the first book in the Roommates series, but can be read as a standalone.
I loved Cannon and Paige, individually and together. They are both caring, smart, and independent people, but they also have their insecurities and baggage. Neither wants to put themselves truly out there. Paige is fearful of the loss of her friendship with Cannon's sister, Allie, as well as the possible hurt and rejection she may face if she gives into her attraction. Cannon doesn't want anything to interfere with his goals to be a physician and to take care of his mother and sister, but how can he resist his childhood crush? The story is told from both of their points of views and it really helped to understand the struggle and emotions each of them were dealing with.
Cannon may be 4 years younger than Paige, but these two have amazing chemistry and I loved their witty banter and steamy moments. Cannon is equal parts tender and sweet as he is dominant and assertive. His cute relationship with his mother was adorable, but I did find Allie to be too judgmental and annoying. I understand her concerns, but Cannon and Paige are adults and they can do what ever they want with their lives. I also didn't quite believe that someone as smart as Cannon, would continually find/hook up with such crazy obsessive women. The crazy ex's drama seemed a little too over the top. For better or for worse, both Cannon and Paige make decisions that they think are for the best for everyone. I do wish these two would have spent a little more time being honest with each other though, rather than assuming they knew what the other was thinking and feeling. It made the epilogue that much sweeter though and who doesn't love lemonade? ;)
Overall, this was a sexy and sweet book with both lighthearted, laugh out loud scenes and heavier, more emotional moments. I felt invested in Cannon and Paige and the push and pull between them had me feeling all the feels! I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
*The Play Mate*
This is exactly what I needed - a lighthearted, fun, and sexy friends to lovers romance with a touch of taboo (best friend's little sister). I could not put this book down or wipe the goofy smile from my face while reading. This is book 2 in the author's Roommates series, but can be read as a complete stand alone.
Smith had me swooning from the start and I could not get enough of him. The story is told from both his and Evie's points of views, but I really loved Smith's chapters best. His inner dialogue is hilarious and honest. I was surprised though by his initial reaction to finding Evie in his bed. Seriously, wouldn't you be at least slightly alarmed to find someone in your bed unexpectedly, especially if it's so dark you have no idea who they are?!? He's got some emotional baggage, but I loved seeing those walls crumble. There's always something so sweet and magical to me about that moment when the main character opens their eyes and sees what has been there in front of them all along. Evie was also a great character, although there were times she seemed a little immature. I understand her do-over plan was more just an excuse for her to act on her long held crush for Smith, but it was still odd to me that a 22 year old would be so worried that her lady parts would gather cobwebs and wither away. The chemistry between Smith and Evie was undeniable though and I loved how easy it was between them. There was no unnecessary drama or other love interests and the only thing standing in our lovers way was themselves (and maybe Evie's brother, Cullen).
The epilogue was fulfilling and adorable and the perfect way to close Smith and Evie's story. I challenge you to finish this book without a smile on your face. If you're looking for a fast, sweet, and lighthearted book, definitely pick up The Play Mate.
*The House Mate*
The House Mate is a great addition to Kendall Ryan's Roommates series. Although it is book 3, all the books in this series can be read as stand alones. This is definitely an amusing and entertaining read, featuring single dad, Max, and his new nanny, Addison.
Max is the typical commitment phobic bachelor who gets his world turned upside down when an ex from the past drops their one year old daughter, Dylan, on his doorstep unexpectedly. I loved Max's transition from tough ex-military man and alpha businessman to teddy bear father. He is equal parts assertive and sweet and his willingness to change his entire life for Dylan was beyond sexy. The push and pull of his feelings for Addison (and hers for him), as well as some other women drama, will have you rooting for them to get their happy ending.
I did find Addison a little immature, but that can be expected since Max is 10 years older than her. She is the perfect girl next door though and I loved the light that she brought to Max and Dylan's lives. Yes, there's instalove and things move very quickly (and predictably) between Max and Addision, but overall this was a fun, feel good, and lighthearted romance.
*The Soul Mate*
This was a really sweet and swoony romance! Yes, there's some instalust/love, but in this case it really works! You will fall for Mason and Bren and root for them to get their happily ever after. Though this is book 4 in the Roommates series, it can be read as a complete stand alone.
I thought it was incredibly refreshing to have the hero be the more romantic and expressive person of the pair. Mason was not afraid to lose his man card by talking about his feelings or taking a leap of faith in the name of love. Make no mistake though, Mason is the total alpha package. He is smart, handsome, caring, loving, sexy, and an all around good guy who has lived his life searching for his soul mate. He has always believed that when he finds the one, that she will be it for him and that he will just know in his heart that it's her. He's no saint though, and let's just say he's been very thorough in his long time search. Bren, on the other hand, has closed herself off from love and attachment due to experiences in her past/present. Will Mason be able to break down Bren's walls to give them a real chance at a relationship, or will the pressure of having a child together prevent them from ever knowing if the connection was true?
I really enjoyed this one, even with all of the push and pull and occasional over the top moments. Sometimes Mason seemed too good to be true, but I loved how patient and understanding he was throughout the book. Yes, he and Bren both make mistakes, but for better or for worse, they both believe that what they are doing is for the best. There were some really emotional moments in this book dealing with grief, loss and love, but I think it was balanced really well with the more lighthearted scenes. The secondary characters, especially Bren's boss, Mandy, were great comic relief as well as a much needed voice of reason. If you're looking for a sweet and fun romance, definitely pick up The Soul Mate!
