    A fun, feel good, & lighthearted romance!

    The House Mate is a great addition to Kendall Ryan's Roommates series. Although it is book 3, all the books in this series can be read as stand alones. This is definitely an amusing and entertaining read, featuring single dad, Max, and his new nanny, Addison. Max is the typical commitment phobic bachelor who gets his world turned upside down when an ex from the past drops their one year old daughter, Dylan, on his doorstep unexpectedly. I loved Max's transition from tough ex-military man and alpha businessman to teddy bear father. He is equal parts assertive and sweet and his willingness to change his entire life for Dylan was beyond sexy. The push and pull of his feelings for Addison (and hers for him), as well as some other women drama, will have you rooting for them to get their happy ending. I did find Addison a little immature, but that can be expected since Max is 10 years older than her. She is the perfect girl next door though and I loved the light that she brought to Max and Dylan's lives. Yes, there's instalove and things move very quickly (and predictably) between Max and Addision, but overall this was a fun, feel good, and lighthearted romance. *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    Sweet and sexy romance!

    The House Mate is the third book in the Roommates series and it can be read as a standalone. One night, thirty-five year old, workaholic Max Alexander finds himself the sole responsible for his one year old daughter. A daughter he didn't know he had. Knowing he'll need help, he decides to hire a nanny. What he didn’t expect was to meet young Addison Lane. Addison needs a new start after a bad breakup. So when she finds the ad to be the nanny of a one year old girl, she applies. When she meets baby Dylan, she falls immediately in love for her. What she didn't expect was the strong attraction for her father, Max. Will Max and Addison keep their relationship professional? Or will they cross the line between employer and employee and become lovers? I loved The House Mate! The story is very sweet and sexy, with the perfect amount of drama. I loved that it was told from Addison's and Max's POVs. And the ending? Perfect! Addison is a sweet and kind young woman that always dreamed of becoming a teacher. However, she put those dreams aside to help her boyfriend achieve his dreams. And things ended up badly for her. Now she has the opportunity of a fresh start. She loves children and falls for Dylan when she meets her. She tries to fight her feelings for Max because not only he's her boss but also because she's afraid of how acting on those feelings would affect her future relationship with Dylan. I loved Max! He made me swoon a lot! He's a hardworking man that started his company after leaving the army. He never thought about settling down and having kids. But when he meets Dylan he falls completely in love with her and easily falls into the role of her father. Meeting Addison changes him even more and he starts thinking more about the future. Once again, Kendall Ryan gives us a very sweet and sexy story, with great characters. The House Mate will hook you from the first page and you won't be able to stop reading.

    A Hunk for a Roomie

    At 35, Max Alexander is single, successful in business and, in his mind, pretty much has it all. He's not interested in commitment in his personal life. Why should he be? With his lack of social skills and impatient attitude, he's not exactly Mr Personality and that's okay with Max. So when he suddenly finds himself with a baby daughter, he needs to find a live-in nanny in a helluva hurry. Addison loves kids and wants to teach eventually but she's still a few credits shy of her degree. But she needs a job and a place to live and she can start work tomorrow. Two needs with a ready solution right? "The House Mate" is book #3 in Kendall Ryan's The Roommates series and her success rate is phenomenal. She truly captures the personalities of Max and Addison and even baby Dylan. What follows is a heart warming, yet sizzling romance with just the right amount of conflict to keep it not only interesting, but also more than just a tale of guy meets girl and they get it on. i love Kendall Ryan's books!

    Full of heat with a touch of sweet ...

    Ms. Ryan knows how to set off steam and she proves that with her Roommates series. The House Mate raises the temperature level to HOT. A single dad devoted to his daughter, yet clueless in the love department. What's more sexy than that? Kendall Ryan sweetened the pot with a dose of family but stayed true to the sex appeal readers have come to know and love. Full of heat with a touch of sweet equals out to a combo that's hard to beat.
