What’s sexier than a bad boy? A badass man who’s got his shit together.

Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company and conquered the business 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?

From New York Times Bestseller, Kendall Ryan comes a new book in her sexy Roommates series. This is book 3 in the series, but each can be read as a complete standalone as they feature a new couple.

    Max was so oblivious with Tiffany! Addison deserves better than max. Addison is a liar and definitely could’ve been in legal trouble for lying on a resume. Max always treats addison so bad, always taking tiffany’s side! Max just proposed to keep addison from leaving!

  • A Wonderful Book!!

    By Katiekoz
    The House Mate is definitely my favorite of The Roommates series so far! I tend to like books more when there are little children in them, and this was no different. Dylan is such an adorable little girl! I really liked both Max and Addison. I feel like I got to know more and see more of them as people as compared to the other two books and those characters. I still think there could have been a little bit more of a history/past update with them though. I wasn't expecting the book to start the way it did and that threw me for a bit of a loop, but I enjoyed the rest of the storyline. I would have liked just a little bit more in the epilogue as well, especially because it was so cute! This is one of my favorite Kendall Ryan books, if not my favorite, to date.
  • You had me at that cupcake!

    This was a quick and enjoyable read. I loved how Max and Addison related to Dylan. There were plenty of sweet moments. A few downfalls for me: What happened with Tiffany (Max's personal assistant)? She opened Pandora's box. Just curious as to who closed it. The biggest downfall for me was the fact that Max didn't even fight to verify that Dylan was his. I'm glad he took on the fatherly role but he never questioned it. That bothered me a bit. The rest of the story was very entertaining. I loved the bathroom scene. I laughed so hard. It was really smart to add it. I did like the story. I'd recommend.
  • Loved Max, Addison & Dylan

    By Lisa Stinson
    This was another great book in this series. It was a quick read but very enjoyable. I loved how Max immediately owned up to his responsibility of being a father when his daughter was thrust upon him so unexpectedly. He immediately decided to get a live in nanny so that she could help him with everything while he continued to maintain his business. Addison was such a sweet girl and I loved the instant connection she got with precious baby Dylan. She immediately cared deeply for the little girl and was always putting her first. I was so glad that when Dylan's mother showed back up, that Max didn't give in to her. Really enjoyed seeing Max and Addison become a little family, even when Max didn't think that was what he wanted for his life.

    Weak story, rushed and cheezy
  • Love, Love, LOVE this book!! ❤️

    By dcjayhawk
    I loved this book SO much; it was complete and utter perfection!! I absolutely adored Max & Addison (and Dylan too). From the moment they met, their chemistry was literally palpable. Kendall Ryan has this way of writing that makes you feel like you are in the book, living it instead of just reading it; this book included! If you want a quick, fun read with a happily ever after, then I totally recommend this book! You will NOT be disappointed!
  • Best "Mate" Yet!

  • A luscious tale to make you swoon, sweat, and pant...

    By Kristie Koste
    The House Mate By: Kendall Ryan 5 Star Review by Kristie K A luscious tale to make you swoon, sweat, and pant, Kendall Ryan definitely makes the third time a charm… The House Mate rings in as the third installment of the Roommates series, and like the first two, it certainly doesn’t disappoint. A smokin’ hot single dad, his adorable little girl, and his obliviously gorgeous nanny with a heart as big as Saturn…what’s not to love? Max Alexander is a self-made success. His company is flourishing, his daughter is thriving, and his love life…well, two out of three ain’t bad… When the new nanny arrives, though, his less than active libido makes a resounding comeback! Addison Lane has always wanted a career around children. After an ugly breakup, and a major hit to her confidence, she finds her salvation in the form of a job opportunity as the live-in nanny for an adorable little girl. The perfect new job has only one minor issue…Addison’s body can’t stop reacting to her gorgeous new boss. This book was such a great read! I have always been a huge fan of Kendall Ryan, and she delivers yet again with The House Mate. A sweet romance with plenty of drawbacks, snags, and snafu’s for them to overcome, it surrounds you with “ahhh’s”, “awww’s”, and “oh my’s”. A complete immersion in the adoration for one little girl, and the unavoidable attraction, respect, and ultimate devotion for each other. The story was full of subtle twists and turns, hills and valleys that kept you guessing, and your stomach never quite out of the clouds. Ms. Ryan has created and executed an awesome plot and storyline, kept it subtle and unique in it’s genre, and delivered it with her usual panache. The characters are amazing. I connected immediately with Addison, fell in love Max, and was completely enchanted by little Dylan. Character development was on point, and perfect for this story, though I wouldn’t mind knowing more about their histories. And, of course, the writing was genius. Kennedy Ryan is hella talented, and has delivered yet another masterful read. Kristie K
