Review Blitz: The Room Mate (Kendall Ryan)


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.

This was my first Kendall Ryan, and as soon as I read the blurb, I knew I wanted to read it, because that blurb is promising as hell :).

This was a cute friends-to-lovers/forbidden romance book, but while I enjoyed it, I wasn’t exactly blown away. The writing was good, the pacing was fast and the book flowed well, and it being dual POV was a big plus for me. But I thought that the pacing was just too fast, you know?


One thing I absolutely loved was the fact that Paige was older than Cannon, because that’s not that common in romances. I did like the characters, though I felt that Paige wasn’t as well developed and Cannon. I did appreciate Cannon’s strong will and his sense of obligations and family. Also, the guy is training to be a doctor… that’s kind of hot!

I love the concept of friends and roommates falling in love, so I did like that part of the plot, but I did think that things happened a little fast, and I kind of expected a little bit more from Paige somehow. I did think they had chemistry and I did like their relationship, but I kind of wish it hadn’t turned sexual right away, because even though they had known each other for a long time, and knew each other well, I wanted to see more of that connection, and not just the sexy bits.


The book is super short and fast, I do think that it could have used a few more pages and have more development.

I also wasn’t the biggest fan of some plot issues and some side characters, but the book was still very enjoyable, and I’m curious to read more from Kendall Ryan, so I’ll make sure to do just that.
