This Story Is Seductive

Publisher's Summary

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 24, 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.

Ouch. That was painful. I don't return books....

But I'd ask for a refund of my time, keep the money. The male narrator drove me nuts. I barely finished.

Such potential... it just wasn't utilized

I did enjoy the read, though it had some slow spots in it. It has great potential, but I feel like the author focused on the wrong drama. In the beginning the story was setup to bring us some great suspense and drama filled chapters, but what we got was one chapter of crazy ex girlfriend drama and the downer of a stepfathers death. The losses he suffered should have brought him closer to her, making it harder on them both when the sister found out... instead it was just something that happened and then they were too childish to speak to each other for weeks. I just feel like the great story it could have been was lost and we were served a bland shell. It falls in line with the many cookie cutter stories that are rushed out to make a buck.

Good story, great potential, an okay was to spend a few hours.

My Thoughts on The Room Mate

Take a sexy med student and move him in with his sister's very attractive best friend and you've got a recipe for a fantastic read.

Cannon was this great mix of smart, determined, caring and super hot alpha male. I loved it. Paige was something Cannon wasn't used to. A mature woman with her life together. While they both knew the other should be off limits to one another, their roommate status proves to be too much temptation to resist.

I loved the concept of this story, I loved the characters, I loved the narrators, and I loved that it was so easy to lose myself in. Can't wait to read more from this author.

Good start to the series!

This was a fun, sexy and enjoyable audiobook. The characters have amazing chemistry and their love story was sweet. I liked the writing and I really liked everything about it except from the sister/best friends reaction. I found her reaction too unbelievable, are they teens...nope, so her childish attention seeking response just annoyed me.

The narration was great!

Funny best friend's little brother romance

I was hooked from the very first line. Who wouldn't be when it opens up with the leading lady holding a gas can and matches? It was the perfect mix of witty banter and electric chemistry. I look forward to reading the other books in the series!

The narration wasn't my favorite. I loved Ava's parts but was not able to get into Jeremy's chapters. I just feel that their may have been a better fit for the male POV.

Not great

The male narrator really ruined this one for me. His voice just didn't sound appropriate for the character he was trying to portray.

Male narrator runined it for me

Sorry, Jeremy! I'm sure he's a great guy but his smarmy voice makes him sound more like a sexual predator than a heartthrob. Couldn't finish the book.

Boring

I'm glad this was only 5 hours. It didn't hold my attention at all. Overall, disappointing.

A good friends to lovers romance.

A good friends lovers romance.

When Paige gets persuaded to rent one of her rooms temporarily to her best friends brother she's a little shocked to find the hottie on her doorstep. The boy who was once her friend's little brother, who used to follow them around is definitely now all man.
A lot of chemistry and the sexy times begin as Paige and Cannon fight their undeniable attraction. Fun and games, skirting around feelings, Paige is afraid what her lifelong best friend will think and the secrets commence, I loved it and who can deny a hot sexy doctor who definitely knows a thing or two about anatomy.

The Room mate was a hot sexy and flirty read with great characters.

A good story with lots of hotness. A light and sexy read with no major dramas.

Told in first person dual pov.

I listened to this on audio and I liked the female narration but found the male sounded too much like Hannibal Lecter and too old for the character which was a little distracting at first but I blocked that out and concentrated on the story which had me hooked from the beginning.

I would definitely read more of Kendall Ryan's books a great example of contemporary romance with a good balance of everything a romance reader wants.

Loved the story

I really enjoyed the story. I did find that I had to increase the speed to 1.25x for the male narrators chapters. His slow pace drove me a little nuts otherwise.
