Review Blitz: The Room Mate by Kendall Ryan
THE ROOM MATE
By: Kendall Ryan
Release Day: January 24, 2017
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.

three boundless stars
I voluntarily received a copy of The Room Mate for a Blog Tour and an honest review. The story was cute and I enjoyed it, the chemistry between Paige and Cannon was off the charts. I would have enjoyed it more had Paige had more confidence and could voice what she wanted instead of acting like a mouse. Yet I guess had she done that it would have been a completely different story.
Cannon, (how do authors come up with these names?) is finishing med school and is super alpha. Ryan blended alpha and Dr. in training seamlessly, yet gave him the vulnerability and a lot of personality. Cannon is one of those characters that becomes a book boyfriend.
For me the drawback to the story was Paige, she was such a mouse. She is older than Cannon by four years and let's fear rule her. Fear of rejection, fear of trying, fear of disappointing or angering people. I prefer my female leads to be more confident.
Overall the story was cute, with nothing that really jumped out as a surprise. I am giving it 3 Boundless stars, it was good.
