Thirty-four-year-old Max Alexander is presented with the result of a three month long relationship, a one year little girl, Dylan. And although the love he has for her is almost palpable, he doesn’t know anything about taking care of another person, least of all, a baby, so he is in desperate need of a nanny.

“I should have closed the door in her face the second I saw her smoldering-hot curves.”

Still mourning a relationship that didn’t end well, Addison Lane needs a new job, new apartment… a new

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
Adorably fun and sexy. This story about a new single dad and the sexy nanny he hires to help out with his one year old daughter he didn’t he know had will have you fanning yourself with their amazing chemistry and smiling with its loveable plot and characters.

Max Alexander has a serious phobia towards commitment. He’s a successful business owner who enjoys women’s company without the stress of a relationship. But having an infant dropped on his doorstep forces him review his priorities and q

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

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.

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

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

The House Mate is ANOTHER great read from Kendall Ryan! Seriously...the woman is amazing at keeping her readers entertained and surprised with each new book she writes!

Oh you guys...this was SO FREAKING GOOD!!! I love me a single dad romance and Kendall Ryan took the premise and made it SPECTACULAR!!! I always fall SO freaking HARD for her characters and Max Alexander was no different. This was a FAVORITE of the series for me, FOR SURE! The minute I read the last sentence, I wanted to start ALL OVER AGAIN! And Max Alexander!!! OMG! Be prepared ladies!!! You will FALL INSTANTLY for this tatted up, gorgeous, alpha-male!

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

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.

Hot Single Dad Romance Alert!! The third book in the Roommates series by Kendall Ryan didn't disappoint. This was another entertaining, quick read that left me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.

Construction boss Max Alexander is a thirty-five-year-old commitment-allergic hottie who likes to enjoy hookups without the pain of a relationship. When his ex makes an unexpected reappearance with a baby in tow, his world changes in an instant. I adored how quickly Max grew attached to baby Dylan and how
***4.5 ‘Don’t Over Think It’ Stars***

I think this may just be my favorite Kendall Ryan book I’ve read thus far. It was sweet and smexy with just enough drama/angst to keep things interesting and well written characters that I loved right off the bat that kept me turning the pages until the very end.

Max is quite content with his life. He has a home and his business is doing well. And though he doesn’t have any romantic prospects on the horizon, it isn’t something that bothers him. It was hard n

The House Mate is a great addition to Kendall Ryan's Roommates series. Although it is book 3, all the books in this series can be read as stand alones. This is definitely an amusing and entertaining read, featuring single dad, Max, and his new nanny, Addison.

Max is the typical commitment phobic bachelor who gets his world turned upside down when an ex from the past drops their one year old daughter, Dylan, on his doorstep unexpectedly. I loved Max's transition from tough ex-military man and alp

The House Mate is a swoon worthy read that is sure to make readers not only blush but fall head over heels with this single dad. Mmmmm.... I love Kendall's books and whenever I pick one up I know I am going to be sucked into the story and wishing that I was somehow a part of it. This is no different with the House Mate and I really loved every single minute of the journey.

Holy. Hotness! Out of all the books in the series, I think this is by far my favorite. It was just downright SWOON CENTRAL! There's something about single dad romances that just kill me every single time. And with the way one-year old Dylan was sprung onto Max one normal—or so he thought—night, how hilarious he reacted and how he learned to love, protect and care for this little lady, I was a complete goner.

If this was love, I'd take it.

This was actually my first Kendall Ryan read! I'm surprised, but it most likely won't be my last.

The House Mate was a single-dad/nanny romance! The way Max became a single dad was unconventional to say the least. He has to hire a nanny quickly, and Addison applies for the job! Of course she's perfect for it, and perfect for Max too. Unfortunately they both know you shouldn't mix business with pleasure, but what if they just can't help themselves?

Max Alexander's life was going just how he thought he liked it. He owns his own construction business, he has good friends, and he has no attachments. He's moody and does not worry too much about social skills or patience. If he wants to scratch an itch, he does and does not have to worry about it. That is until his whole world is rocked when he suddenly finds himself the primary caregiver of a daughter he did not know he had. This confirmed bachelor really has no idea what to do with a one year ...more
