A delicious new single dad standalone romance from New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan.
Lexington Dane was my brother’s best friend growing up.
We did everything together.
He taught me how to throw a punch, how to change a tire…and he taught me how to kiss. I fell hard and fast, and gave him all my firsts.
I promised I’d wait for him…
But I’m done waiting, because he went off to college and never came back. He took his fancy business degree and moved to New York City, where he promptly became a real estate mogul—turning every penthouse and apartment project he touched into gold.
It’s been ten years, and now he’s back and needs a favor…someone to watch his little girl. That’s right, the cocky penthouse prince and heartbreaker extraordinaire Lexington is back with an adorable two-year-old daughter.
Guess who he wants to watch her?
I’ve never been able to say no to him. I might agree to be the nanny for his precious little angel, but there’s no way in hell I’m falling for her hot-as-sin daddy.
Second Chance Love Done Right
PENTHOUSE PRINCE, Kendall Ryan's latest, is a bit different from her other books, and I am totally here for it. A slow burn second-chance romance, in a small town ( my town, believe it or not, with a little bit of artistic license, but I'll take it) with her brother's best friend...that's a lot of tropes, but it totally worked for me here.
Did Lex pull the total creep move years ago? Yep. Does he deserve a second chance? Absolutely. Because he's a changed man, with a different perspective, and is willing to do right by Corrigan this time around.
Is Corrigan right to wonder whether she's crazy for putting herself in Lex's orbit? Maybe a little bit, but there's no winning against toddlers with sassy streaks a mile wide (Grier, not Lex...😉). And, time does heal many wounds, so nothing ventured, nothing gained, I'd say.
Sure, there were moments that I wanted to shake both Corrigan and Lex, but, all in all, PENTHOUSE PRINCE was a solid book that I really enjoyed, a kinder, gentler Kendall that I am really digging. More like this, please, Kendall. Grab this prince and enjoy, romance friends. ❤️
The story line is sweet. I liked their love story. I feel like after you read so many of these books, the story lines are predictable. But Lex is swoon worthy. ❤️
Get ready to get your heart stolen!
Get ready to get your heart stolen! Corrigan grew up in love with her older brother’s best friend Lexington – until she found out as a teenager that he returned her feelings and they dated in secret until he went to college and broke things off abruptly. Ten years later, Lexington returns home after finding out his mother has a terminal illness, bringing his young daughter with him. At the recommendation of his best friend, he reaches out to Corrigan to nanny his daughter for the summer, and initially she is not going to do it – until she meets his daughter. As the three of them spend time together, Corrigan realizes she’s not only falling back in love with Lex, but also falling in love with his daughter, and they feel the same way. Thankfully Lex decides to act on the feelings that never went away thanks to his best friend and mother, and these two get the HEA they were always destined to have. Per usual, I couldn’t get enough of Kendall’s storylines and her characters and I can’t wait for her next book!
