Max Alexander is a man's man, sexy, successful, unattainable and totally desirable... especially when you see him tightly wound around his one-year old daughter Dylan's finger. Thrown into the life of a single-father, he needs help fast, and to his rescue comes, Addison Lane, a gorgeous distraction who is far too perfect for the job.
No big deal. This was perfectly normal for a red-blooded male living with sex on a stick. The old nanny fantasy. In my dirty

Review at Of Pens and Pages.

The House Mate is the third standalone in the Roommates series told in alternating POVs. It's a light, fun, and sexy book with a heart-melting and ovary-exploding hero, a sweet and caring heroine, and one of the most adorable baby girls you'll meet.

When Max Alexander's ex-girlfriend drops a twelve-month-old baby—their baby—at his house and leaves, his life goes into a tailspin. The thirty-five-year-old ex-Army man has built a successful business and spends mos

I'm catching up on this series before the release of the forth book The Soul Mate (Roommates, #4) by Kendall Ryan . Really enjoyed the audiobook version!

If you're a fan of single father falls for a babysitter trope then give this one a read. It's very well done! Recommended!

THE HOUSE MATE was a light and sweetly romantic story about a man, a baby, and a nanny. When Max's ex appears with a baby in tow and abandons their daughter into his hands, he proves just how capable those hands are when he vows to provide her with a home and the best care possible for her when he's at work. His solution? Hire a nanny and that's where Addison comes in. There was no doubt that they would both fall in love with baby Dylan. What they hadn't planned for was falling in love with each ...more

Everyone needs to play house with Max and Addison. The House Mate is fun, funny and adorable. Who doesn’t love a Single Daddy book? Max will have you swooning from head to toe.

I love a single daddy book. I LOVE LOVE LOVE single daddies! Max is a single father to a cute one year old and he doesn’t know what he’s doing, but he’s doing the best he can. He needs a live in nanny to help him take care of his daughter and Addison is the woman to do it.

The House Mate is a total cuteness overload!!  Max is sexy,  Addison is beautiful, and Dylan (the baby) is absolutely adorable.  I feel like this book was written with me in mind.  I freaking LOVE this trope.  Sexy single dad falls for the nanny with a cute baby thrown in for grins and giggles.  That is my jam.
I love books. LOL  This was the perfect story for me.  It's a light, quick, fun, and sexy little novel.

Well, Kendall Ryan has done it once again with another instalment of her Roommates series, The House Mate. I always look forward to another Kendall Ryan release because I know I’m in for a fun and sexy ride and The House Mate was no exception. If you are looking for a light, fun read which is relatively low on drama and angst then you should definitely give this one a go.

I was sucked in by the single dad trope yet again and I'm not even sorry. Max was completely swoon worthy while he fumbled through trying to take care of his daughter and Addison was a great addition to his new family. The whole book was just super sweet, but of course with some smexiness because what would we do without that?

My rating was bumped down to a 3 because the ending just seemed a little too rushed and not all that put together. I still really enjoyed t

The House Mate is the third standalone in the Roommates Series and features a budding romance between Max and his live in nanny, Addison.

Kendall Ryan nails this sweet romance that gives us a newly discovered single dad who falls head over dick for his live in nanny. At thirty-five, Max has a successful career and no lack in bedmates if he so chooses, but what he doesn’t have is anything that anchors him or settles him. Not until an ex shows up with a bundle of joy and takes off, leaving Max to g
I love the smut.

The House Mate is the third book of the Roommates series. The smut was really good and it did seem to have more of a storyline than the other books. I also really liked getting to meet Max and Addison. Don't even get me started on that darling baby girl named Dylan.

Okay so these two grew up not knowing each other. One day, Max came home to find one of his exes in the drive way. Apparently she had his kid and she also can't do this whole "parenting" thing anymore. YIKES! So.. what

The best relationships begin as friendships.

I have a huge SMILE on my face as I bask in the glow of the best BOOK BLISS rendered by Kendall Ryan! The House Mate is ROMANCE MAGIC! Flawless and fabulous! The House Mate is a sweet, sexy, swoon-filled friends-to-lovers meets employee-boss romance that leaves you melting for more.

This review is clearly going to go against the grain.

A gruff single-dad, a hot nanny and a cute dream of a little girl? It’s mostly likely guaranteed to make many female readers’ ovaries explode (!), but right now, I like mine where they are: safe, tucked away and unmoved by this apparently domestic scene. It’s not so much as that it’s a version of the manwhore/casual player vs the virgin (or at least, the very experienced man vs. the woman who is fairly inexperienced) that chafed my backside be

Ever watch baseball? When the player hits the fourth base, and the umpire yells "SAFE". Yeah well that's how I felt reading this one.
Less drama. Little complications. Easy read. Completely safe.
If you already had a taste of what Kendall Ryan is packing you wouldn't be surprised tho.

Max is a certified single hot male specimen, that is, until one day his ex decided to drop his surprise daughter on his doorstep. Zero parenting knowledge so the best way to solve this

This was a short, fast paced story. With sweet, funny, cute moments. I enjoyed reading this book but I wasn't blown away.It was just a nice book. I liked the characters and the little cute Dylan. The story though had some gaps and unanswered questions but still it was a nice reading.

Kendall Ryan strikes the perfect balance of light-hearted and sexy, swoon worthy hero in this single dad and nanny story. And that's tough... in order for the light hearted, you need the dad who is a little lost. But to make him swoon worthy, you need the capable man who can handle anything. The balance for Max in this is that while he wasn't perfect, he was all in. And, really, there's nothing sexier than a man who makes a commitment and is just matter what.
