What’s sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who’s got his shit together. Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company, and he’s conquered the professional 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? This is book 3 in the Roommates series, but each book can be read as a complete standalone as they all feature new couples to fall in love with.
I am a huge fan of Kendall Ryan´s work. Her books are funny, sexy, sweet and daring. Her writing is magnificent and captivating the same as her characters.
Even though this is my first glimpse into her Roommate series I thoroughly enjoyed as a standalone cause each book features a new couple that for life circumstances end up living together. The whole concept of the series is intriguing and very up to date in our techy world. After reading The House Mate I am undoubtedly going to check out the previous two books. And the covers are absolutely stunning and wickedly sexy.
The whole pace of the narration and the development of the story was fantastic almost till the very end when suddenly everything in the plot started to rush. From that point onward, everything was fast and not very reliable from what the author wanted to show with Max and Addison. That was the only thing that made this book get lower on my rating. But all in all, I thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend it in a heartbeat.
