    Better then 5 stars

    Another great book from Kendall. Can't wait for the next in the series. This one didn't follow the norm plot line like most other books. It was great that you couldn't predict what was going to happen

    Fun and sexy brother's best friend romance!

    Evie Reed and Smith Hamilton have known each other since they were little. After all, Smith is Evie's brother best friend. She always had a crush and now that she's twenty-two and fresh out of college, she wants a do-over of her first time with a man. Who better than Smith Hamilton? He's seven years older than her and experienced. But can they cross the friendship line? I loved The Play Mate! The story is fast paced, funny, and sexy. I laughed a lot with the banter between Evie and Smith. And their chemistry? Off the charts! Evie Reed is a sweet and sassy young woman. She knows what she wants, more especifically who she wants. She always had a crush for Smith but now she realizes that what she feels for him is much more powerful than a crush. She's afraid of what her relationship with Smith might do to her relationship with her brother. Smith Hamilton is a smart and good looking millionaire. He worked hard to be where he is now and doesn't want his life to change. What he didn't count was Evie returning to his life has a buxom bombshell. He always liked her, but now those feelings devolped to something more. He wants more with her. But his loyalty to Cullen, Evie's brother and his best friend, makes him keep Evie away from his bed. Once again, Kendall Ryan gives us an awesome book, with a fun and sexy story and great characters. The Play Mate is a fast paced brother's best friend romance that will hook you from the first page!

    A Lighthearted, Fun, & Sexy Romance!

    This is exactly what I needed - a lighthearted, fun, and sexy friends to lovers romance with a touch of taboo (best friend's little sister). I could not put this book down or wipe the goofy smile from my face while reading. This is book 2 in the author's Roommates series, but can be read as a complete stand alone. Smith had me swooning from the start and I could not get enough of him. The story is told from both his and Evie's points of views, but I really loved Smith's chapters best. His inner dialogue is hilarious and honest. I was surprised though by his initial reaction to finding Evie in his bed. Seriously, wouldn't you be at least slightly alarmed to find someone in your bed unexpectedly, especially if it's so dark you have no idea who they are?!? He's got some emotional baggage, but I loved seeing those walls crumble. There's always something so sweet and magical to me about that moment when the main character opens their eyes and sees what has been there in front of them all along. Evie was also a great character, although there were times she seemed a little immature. I understand her do-over plan was more just an excuse for her to act on her long held crush for Smith, but it was still odd to me that a 22 year old would be so worried that her lady parts would gather cobwebs and wither away. The chemistry between Smith and Evie was undeniable though and I loved how easy it was between them. There was no unnecessary drama or other love interests and the only thing standing in our lovers way was themselves (and maybe Evie's brother, Cullen). The epilogue was fulfilling and adorable and the perfect way to close Smith and Evie's story. I challenge you to finish this book without a smile on your face. If you're looking for a fast, sweet, and lighthearted book, definitely pick up The Play Mate. *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    3.5 SWEET & SEXY STARS

    3.5 STARS! This friends to lovers/forbidden romance was fun and sexy with a sweet and heartwarming ending. I loved Evie's naughty playfulness and I am always down for some forbidden love. The chemistry between Evie and Smith definitely produced sufficient steam to fog up the windows. However, the characters and story didn't hold the same level of intensity for me. I didn't find an emotional connection with the characters. Normally when I read a Kendall Ryan book I am giddy with feels. The story followed an often traveled path and I never found myself surprised by anything that happened, yet I felt there was one or two issues that weren't entirely resolved. Although this wasn't my favorite book from this author, she's definitely still a favorite overall and I'm still going to continue to read her books.

    ...as tempting as Smith and Evie are to each other

    When Evie decides to get in touch with her naughty side her feminine wiles, may have bitten off more than they can handle. Kendall Ryan is the queen of friends to lovers romance. The Play Mate puts her skills on full display. Smith is in over his head. His hormones are in overdrive. Evie is his biggest temptation with her vixen ways, but her newly found sex appeal is a risk he can't afford to take. The aftermath could cost him his heart and his best friend. The price is just too high. Driven by humorous scenarios and awkward situations, The Play Mate proves to be as tempting to readers, as Smith and Evie are to each other.
