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 ROOM MATE is a full-length standalone romance.

So, this isn’t the first book I read by Kendall Ryan but the blurb and all were quite interesting so yes, I got the book. I am always looking for something forbidden but with quirky humor in that and this book had it all. It had forbidden drama of falling for best friends’ brother and quirky dirty talks by Cannon.
“You can touch it if you want,” I murmured, amused by her response.”
Here, Paige is a goody good girl. Lives the same monotonous life without anything excitement or spice in it. The only companion she has are her parents and her best friend, Allie. So, when Allie ask her to let her little brother stay with her for few months she can’t say no.
Cannon has a very complicated life compared to Paige. Where Paige is, normal vanilla Cannon is crunchy chocolate caramel toffee one. He is in the last year of med school and will complete his studies in two months but before that he finds himself homeless. Now, Cannon here, has a very keen tendency to attract psycho. He is said to be very charming in between the sheets so when he bangs the girl she instantly falls in love with him. See? Psycho.
The chemistry between Paige and Cannon was off the charts. But the thing I didn’t like was the constant nagging in the back mind after reading every chapter that there should be more. I felt like there was something missing which didn’t connected the dots from one chapter to another. No doubt the dialogues and emotions were good… but the story continuation didn’t do that for me.
“You’re beautiful. It’s a privilege to touch you.”
And then there was this part about Allie, Cannon’s sister, that how much she interfered in his life. She didn’t want Cannon to lose his focus sue to some girl which would disturb his studies. For me she was kind of hypocrite. She was in a living relationship but she forbidden her brother to be in a relationship.
Few things were frustrating but it made up the part where Paige and Cannon were together. Super-hot and steamy.
“In that moment, he was the realest, best, brightest thing in my world, and I hated that we would never be more.”
