What’s sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who’s got his shit together.
Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company, and he’s conquered the professional world, but he’s never been lucky in love. Focusing so much time on his business and raising his daughter, adulting has come at the expense of his personal life.
His social skills are shit, his patience is shot, and at times, his temper runs hot.
The last thing he has time for is the recently single, too gorgeous for her own good young woman he hires to take care of his little girl. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and besides, there’s no way she’d be interested. But you know what they say about assumptions?
This is book 3 in the Roommates series, but each book can be read as a complete standalone as they all feature new couples to fall in love with.
The House Mate is the third book in the Roommates series by the very talented Kendall Ryan. Each book in the series can be read as standalone. If you love single dads stories like I do, you most definitely need this book in your life.
Max thought he had the kind of life he always wanted. He doesn’t have to answer to anyone except to himself. He can come and go as he pleases. He enjoyed his bachelor life. Then in one night it all changed. He was suddenly a single father to a one year old Dylan. He had no idea what he was going to do but he knew he needed help. That is where Addison comes into their lives. She needed a fresh start and loved kids. Hen she saw a position for a live-in nanny job, she had a feeling it was a sign. And after meeting Dylan, she knew this was where she belonged. They bonded instantly. But what was she going to do about the way she felt when she met Mr. Sex on Legs? She didn’t want to ruin this opportunity because of her libido.
Max knew he was in trouble the minute he opened the door. He thought about closing that door but when he saw the connection between his daughter and the beautiful woman who could be exactly what he needed, he couldn’t let her walk away. He surely can keep his dick in his pants so that he daughter could have what she needed. Her. Someone to take care of her. Keep her safe. Make her happy. Keep her healthy. But the more time he spends with her, it’s harder and harder to stay away. He feels something for her. He also feels the love between the girls. And it feels amazing. What if something did happen? Addison wants it too but is it worth the risk of not only losing Max but also Dylan?
I loved. Loved. Loved this story! Single dad stories just get to me especially when you feel the love and bond they have with their children. It’s beautiful. And with a daughter. *swoon* Max is such an amazing father. And Addison is so sweet with Dylan. I loved it even more since Dylan wasn’t just in the background. She was front and center. The most important character. As for Max and Addison…they are fun, flirty, sweet and hot.
Overall…my favorite from the series! I felt connected to the characters. I read the book in one sitting. I was finished by lunch. If I wasn’t then I probably wouldn’t have eaten. Anyway…it made me laugh, swoon, and hot and bothered. I even cried!
Jesus, what kind of nanny pictured her boss naked?
A horny one, my inner devil shot back.
“Do she and Dylan play in the sprinklers a lot?” Zach asked, his face the picture of innocence. Dylan turned, gurgling at the sound of her name. “And if so, what times of day? Asking for a friend.”
“Addison?” Max called, his voice laced with laughter. “Should I be afraid?”
The House Mate is the third book in the Roommates series, but they are all standalones. Kendall always entertains with her great writing, and funny and sexy characters. Max is successful, handsome and desperately needs a nanny for his daughter. Addison is fresh off a break up with no job and no place to live so when she lands a job as a live in nanny, she’s over the moon. Max isn’t prepared for his reaction to the new nanny. She’s a breath a fresh air and she has an instant bond with Dylan, his daughter. Addison tries her best not to be attracted to Max, but it’s a losing battle. Max shouldn’t want the nanny, how clichéd! But, she’s irresistible. Can Max and Addison defy the odds? What a cute love story! I was a little thrown by how insta-love it was, but I still enjoyed it.
“Sound about right. I was ‘ball’ for the first two days we were together.”
“Yeah, I could see that. Your head is very round.”
“Don’t worry, baby. This is nothing you can’t handle, and I’ll make sure you’re more than ready for me.”
