The House Mate
What’s sexier than a bad boy? A badass man who’s got his shit together.
Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company and conquered the business 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?
From New York Times Bestseller, Kendall Ryan comes a new book in her sexy Roommates series. This is book 3 in the series, but each can be read as a complete standalone as they feature a new couple.
A fun, feel good, and lighthearted romance!
The House Mate is a great addition to Kendall Ryan's Roommates series. Although it is book 3, all the books in this series can be read as stand alones. This is definitely an amusing and entertaining read, featuring single dad, Max, and his new nanny, Addison.
Max is the typical commitment phobic bachelor who gets his world turned upside down when an ex from the past drops their one year old daughter, Dylan, on his doorstep unexpectedly. I loved Max's transition from tough ex-military man and alpha businessman to teddy bear father. He is equal parts assertive and sweet and his willingness to change his entire life for Dylan was beyond sexy. The push and pull of his feelings for Addison (and hers for him), as well as some other women drama, will have you rooting for them to get their happy ending.
I did find Addison a little immature, but that can be expected since Max is 10 years older than her. She is the perfect girl next door though and I loved the light that she brought to Max and Dylan's lives. Yes, there's instalove and things move very quickly (and predictably) between Max and Addision, but overall this was a fun, feel good, and lighthearted romance.

A Wonderful Book!!
The House Mate is definitely my favorite of The Roommates series so far! I tend to like books more when there are little children in them, and this was no different. Dylan is such an adorable little girl! I really liked both Max and Addison. I feel like I got to know more and see more of them as people as compared to the other two books and those characters. I still think there could have been a little bit more of a history/past update with them though. I wasn't expecting the book to start the way it did and that threw me for a bit of a loop, but I enjoyed the rest of the storyline. I would have liked just a little bit more in the epilogue as well, especially because it was so cute! This is one of my favorite Kendall Ryan books, if not my favorite, to date.
