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.
The House Mate by Kendall RyanMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Adorably fun and sexy. This story about a new single dad and the sexy nanny he hires to help out with his one year old daughter he didn’t he know had will have you fanning yourself with their amazing chemistry and smiling with its loveable plot and characters.
Max Alexander has a serious phobia towards commitment. He’s a successful business owner who enjoys women’s company without the stress of a relationship. But having an infant dropped on his doorstep forces him review his priorities and quickly hire a nanny for his daughter. It doesn’t matter how stunning and attractive he finds her, nor that they’ll be living under the same roof. All that matters is that she’s perfect for his little girl. Can he find a way to resist her?
A job as nanny to a precious little girl couldn’t have come at a better time. Addison Lane was lacking self-confidence and miserable, homeless and unemployed. So focusing on baby Dylan and ignoring her crazy attraction to her gorgeous employer is paramount. She shouldn’t mix business with pleasure but crossing that line is irresistible?
Kendall Ryan has penned another sweet and entertaining addition to her Roommates series. It was adorable how Max immediately loves his daughter which completely changes his demeanor; and it was equally heartwarming how Addison cared for and fell for baby Dylan. Even though the baby scenes at times threatened to steal the show, I really liked every one of them.
It’s really difficult to overshadow a great hero like Max though. Even having openly shied away from commitment, he had no such compunction when faced with the responsibility of fatherhood or being caring and understanding of the woman he’s intensely attracted to and irreversibly falling for. He’s thoughtful and caring underneath all the moody sexiness.
Watching him and Addison trying and failing miserable to ignore their chemistry and fall in love was as fun as it was enjoyable. And as with the previous books in the series, Max and Addison’s story is lighthearted, sexy and swoony, and isn’t fraught angst. That doesn’t mean that the couple’s journey towards happiness is burden free, but rather that problems are dealt with swiftly.
The House Mate is book #3 in the Roommates series by Kendall Ryan. This a light and quick, very sexy and entertaining standalone romance, told from both points of view with a very sweet epilogue happy ending.
