on January 24th, 2017
Genres: Contemporary Romance
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.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
A man cursed with skills in the bedroom so amazing, girls either go batsh*t crazy or hopelessly in love. An independent woman the man has been lusting over since they were kids; the same woman who’s best friends with the man’s older sister. One house. Sexual Tension. If that’s not a recipe for a fun and wonderful forbidden romance, I don’t know what is!
“My best friend’s little brother wasn’t so little anymore. And he’d just marched into my life, turning my girly bits into warm, aroused mush.”
Cannon Roth, a hot as hell, 24-year old med student, has been evicted from his old place after a crazy ex broke in and ruined his things. After days of couch surfing, his sister, Allie, finally found a place for him. The catch? He’ll be living with Allie’s best friend and his childhood crush, Paige.
At 28, Paige has learned to value her privacy. She enjoys her quiet time at home with her dog, Enchilada, after a long day’s work. So when her best friend asks her for a huge favor to let her baby brother crash with her for two months, she’s not exactly jumping for joy. But when her best friend’s brother is standing in front of her, she’s faced with a new predicament––she’s attracted to her best friend’s brother.
They consider each other off limits. Cannon’s sworn off women until at least after his residency, and there’s the thing where Cannon is four years younger than Paige, and he’s her best friend’s baby brother. But after a glass of wine too many and Cannon’s confession about his ‘curse’, Paige challenges him, taunts him, that the curse won’t work on her. Cannon isn’t the type to back down, and he’d take any opportunity to sleep with his childhood fantasy.
Paige and Cannon are hilarious! Paige especially. When she’s not worrying about getting caught by her best friend, she thinks of the funniest things. And I love Cannon! He’s dedicated, charming, and hot. Did I mention he’s a future doctor? Because he is. A million cookie points for this one. They get along so well and their sexual chemistry is off the charts!
The Room Mate is a fun and sexy standalone forbidden romance told in Cannon and Paige’s POV. It has little angst, a lot of steam, cute banter, and abs for days. I mean seriously. Just look at the cover! Look at it!
