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?
After reading a couple of books by the author, it is no surprise that Kendall Ryan has become one of my favorite authors. She knows how to execute a great story filled with sexy characters and swooning romances that will leave you wanting for more. In The House Mate, we get to meet Addison and Max, two opposites who are trying to find a way to survive the obstacles that have recently come their way. In his thirties, Max Alexander has it all, he has money and women around him ready to please his every command. He has built a successful company, but he has never truly found love. This all comes crashing down on him when his ex shows up at his house to deliver the baby that they conceived over a year ago. Now he is a father who has no clue what to do, but when he hires a in-house nanny to take care of his daughter, he suddenly finds himself having feelings for her. He knows that she is a distraction that he can't afford to have, but as he gets to know her better, the more he wants her to be his.
On the other hand, Addison has recently broken up with her boyfriend and quitting school at the last minute has her on edge. She needs to find a job quickly, and that is when a sudden opportunity seems to be solving all of her problems. Yet, little did know that her boss was going to change her life forever. I really enjoyed reading this book, the characters have an instant chemistry that they can't deny. Living under the same roof definitely makes them worse for them because they can't run away from their feelings. As the two come to terms with their feelings, there are definitely things in their pasts that could jeopardize their future and they need to fix that. I loved Max, he truly is a great dad and swoon worthy character that will melt your heart. Addison is fun and is not really sure of what she wants at times, but she is trying to figure out what's best for her and those she loves. Overall, this was a quick romantic read that I would highly recommend picking up. :)
