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.
The Room Mate is a sweet and sexy read with a lot of sexual tension.
Paige has just gotten out of a relationship and is wanting to enjoy a quiet life. Just when she starts enjoying her alone time, her best friend Allie calls, asking her to take in her younger brother Cannon. Thinking Cannon is the shy and nerdy boy she grew up with, she is shocked to find he is anything but. Cannon is sex-on-a-stick but with a heart of gold.
Cannon’s life hasn’t been easy. He’s been the man of the family and is on his way to becoming a doctor. But, he has one major flaw – a crazy ex that he can’t seem to shake, and she won’t take no for an answer.
After having no other choice, Allie sets it up for him to live with Paige for a few months. Paige is who he has crushed on forever. Upon meeting, the sparks fly and neither of them can deny their attraction. Deciding to share one night together, well, we all know how that works out. Never say never.
Paige is so scared. She is four years older and his sister’s best friend. She is so afraid of hurting Allie, and I respected her for that. However, I felt she also kept Cannon at a distance and didn’t give him a fair chance. I just wanted her to tell Allie and get it over with. But the more she denies her feelings, the bigger chance she has of losing him forever. I liked Cannon. He’s hot, sexy, and quite a guy. He’s just so adorable and HOT! I just wanted a little more from Paige.
Like I said, it’s cute and a quick read. There is a good story, hot sexy scenes with a little danger in between by his ex, but overall a good 4 star book.
