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.
I'm torn with this book. One one hand I'm a big fan of this author and her work. However, on the other--and it pains me to say this--The Room Mate just didn't quite do it for me.
I really wanted to liked this book more than I did. That's not to say I didn't like it, I just prefer Kendall's other books more. Personally, I felt something was missing in this book. I don't know what, I just didn't connect with the characters and relationship as much. I don't know if this is down to my mood, but it all felt a bit repetitive of other books I've read by Kendall. The characters didn't really offer me anything different.
Saying that, this book still held my attention. It was a short read and filled with the usual heat you would expect from this author.
Overall, this was a good read, just not my favourite by Kendall Ryan. I wanted to like it more than I did.
