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.
Review by Lisa Kane
Paige is twenty eight and single. She works as the HR Manager for a small non-profit. Life is good, but it could be better. She misses not having a man in her life, or at least one important part of one. Her best friend Allie asks if her brother Cannon can come and stay with her for a little while. It seems he had a problem with his apartment and he needs to crash for a couple of months until he decides where he is going for his residency. He's in his last year of med school so it won't be for long. Paige has fond memories of Allie's geeky younger brother, but Paige is less than thrilled to share her small space with him. That is until she gets a look at how the little brother is all grown up!
I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to enjoy.
Cannon apartment was trashed by yet another psycho nut job that he slept with-four times in the last six months he's had his place vandalized. Now the landlord is throwing him out. He's turning over a new leaf. He needs to make sure he buckles down.
Cannon Roth was going to be levelheaded, in control and most importantly: celibate.
He's spent too much time with women and not enough time as he should focusing on his medical career. Too much is at stake.
My mother and older sister were counting on me. They were what really mattered, not chasing women.
He doesn't want to explain all the trouble he's had with crazy chicks to Paige. He hasn't seen her in years, but she provided spank bank material for years.
Her hot as hell, totally off limits BFF who I’d lusted after from the moment I hit puberty.
He takes one look at her and his vows to cool his act with women are blown apart.
I hadn’t seen Paige in years, and fuck if she hadn’t grown up into a beautiful woman.
Cannon might be younger than Paige, but he's no kid. He's serious about becoming a doctor.
He might be young, twenty four years to my twenty eight, but his eyes spoke of wisdom and maturity.
Once the work out the living arrangements, they both are comfortable enough to start getting into some personal things. Cannon tells Paige a little about how women fall for him-Over and Over again.
“Is your dick cursed with black magic or something?”
He shrugged, dragging his eyes up to meet mine.” No, just eight inches long. I also have wicked stamina…and an advanced understanding of female anatomy.
Paige is up for any challenge. She's not going to be one of these air heads, falling in love with Cannon after having sex. It's game on!
With trembling fingers, she produced an unopened box of condoms. “Those won’t fit princess. I’ll be right back.”
Just kill me now..
The Room Mate is funny and sexy and the pages flow so well I read it in one sitting. I love a book that takes you away!
“I love you, princess. Always have. Always will.”
