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.
Kim's 4 Star Review
When Paige answered her best friend Allie’s phone call she never thought her best friend would ask her to do her a favour and let her younger brother Cannon crash in her spare room. At first Paige thought this would be easy until Cannon came knocking on her door. Cannon is not quite the geeky boy she remembers but a tall, lean, muscled and sinfully sexy man the makes her realise she’s in over her head.
What you get when you have your best friend’s geeky young brother who has turn into the Hot as hell soon to be doctor is a whole lot of fiery, sometime tense and uncontrollable chemistry. Paige knows that Cannon is off limits but when she got some liquid courage in her it didn’t stop Paige from challenging Cannon to test his theory that every woman he sleeps with falls in love with him. Paige would love to knock down his cocky egotistical attitude down a notch meanwhile getting an orgasm or two out of it in the process.
Cannon has had a crush on Paige since he was 14 years old but being 4 years younger didn’t help him. With his string of bad lucky and crazy ex’s has him staying at the one woman’s place he can’t have but wants more than anything.
Paige and Cannon must really like to play with fire. They both are insanely attracted to each other but know that Allie wouldn’t approve of any kind of relationship between them other than friendship. The problem is with the intense connection and fierce sexual attraction they have keeps pulling them together all the while destiny keeps throwing obstacles in their path. It’s crazy how Paige and Cannon haven’t seen or spoken to each other in so long but when they’re together most would think they’ve been together the entire time as they move in sync like they have never been apart.
With Cannon’s talk about his ex’s falling in love with him too quickly, of course there has to be at least one who falls in the crazy category and has to show up at the most inopportune time. This drops a whole lot more on Paige’s lap as she has other fallouts she is dealing with including what is happening between Cannon and her.
I’ve become a big fan of Kendall’s over the years, so when she brought out this new series about roommates starting with the hot best friend’s brother I couldn’t resist but. Kendall is an amazing writer who keeps coming up with the touching, romantic and clever books. The Room Mates is a remarkable book and I’m looking forward to seeing what else she comes up with for the rest of the series.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
