REVIEW BLITZ & 4 1/2 STAR REVIEW: The Room Mate (Roommate #1) by 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.

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

Eek! The best friend's younger sibling trope has been given the Kendall Ryan treatment and it is awesome. Cannon needs a place to live and Paige happens to have an extra room in her tiny apartment. It has been years since she has seen him and is not prepared for the man he has become. Gone is the geeky boy she knew and what is standing in front of her is a grown, sexy man. 

Cannon has a terrible track record with woman. Once they sleep with him they fall in love with him and turn into one of those level 5 clingers. It is because of the last woman he slept with that he even needs a new place to live. When he tells Paige this, she thinks he is crazy and sets out to prove him wrong. How? By sleeping with him, of course. Throw in Cannon's sister who disapproves of anyone that he gets involved with and you have a secret relationship that was absolutely delicious. 

Gah! This book is so good! Cannon and Paige's relationship wasn't forbidden, but it definitely had that vibe to it. Cannon always had a crush on Paige so for him, he gets to live out his ultimate fantasy. For Paige, she is determined to prove him wrong, but the more she is around Cannon, the more she realizes that he may just be the man for her. And let's be honest, the guy has GAME. 
“That’s right,” he said, encouraging me. “You like watching me touch you, princess?”
I did, but I couldn’t string together the words to tell him, couldn’t form a coherent thought right now if my life depended on it. His skilled hands knew all the spots, and just the right pressure and speed to deliver maximum pleasure.
Leaning back into his solid form, I succumbed and let the pleasure wash over me, pushing my hips forward to grant him even greater access. He rewarded me by sliding one thick finger inside me. Another needy cry escaped me. I wasn’t the type to climax quickly—the few lovers I’d been with in the past had had to work at it—but somehow, after just a few short minutes, Cannon had me poised right on the edge. That dangerous place where I’d splinter into a million fragments and burst apart.
Surrounded by his warm muscle and rich, masculine scent, I lost all sense of modesty, moaning out loud as he slid his finger in and out, watching him watch me. It was incredibly erotic.
“You’re beautiful. It’s a privilege to touch you.”
I could have melted at his darkly seductive tone. It was clear he meant it; his breathing was ragged and his erection pressed as hard as steel into my lower back.
With one hand between my legs, he caressed my breasts with the other. His mouth burned against my neck. “Are you going to come for me, gorgeous girl?” he whispered against my skin.
I shuddered in his arms, coming apart at the seams as my release tore through me. White light burst beyond my vision, blood thundering in my ears as my body clenched almost violently around his fingers. Blinded by pleasure, nothing else existed for me but his soft touches, gentle kisses, and dirty whispers.
Coming down from my high, I sagged against him, grateful when his strong arms wrapped around me.
Cannon spun me around to face him and lifted me up, holding me tightly against his chest while he walked us toward the bed, where he stripped me of my pants and underwear.
“I’ve got you,” he said, placing me in the center of the pillow-top mattress.
Boneless and relaxed, I smiled at him shyly, watching as he pushed his pants and boxers down, freeing that thick, gorgeous cock I’d dreamed about since the night I’d run into him naked in the hallway. I almost groaned at the beautiful sight. He was exquisite. I wanted to touch him, to taste him, to hear him moan with pleasure.
His hand found his cock and he stroked slowly once, twice, my core tightening all over again as I watched him. “You ready for more?”
I nodded. “Come here.”
I devoured this book. Once I picked it up I couldn't put it down. I was pretty much sold on Cannon and Paige getting together right from the start and they did not disappoint. There are plenty of sexy sexy times between them, but there are also quite a few sweet moments that showed there was more to their relationship than just the sex. This is a definitely must read.
