I was falling, and I was falling hard. I could only hope Evie felt the same and that, soon enough, we’d come up with a way to tell her brother. A way that wouldn’t drive us all apart and ruin everything.

“The Play Mate” is book two in the “Roommates” series by Kendall Ryan and it is fast becoming one of my favourite series of the year. “The Play Mate” was a highly anticipated read for me as I love the ‘falling for the older brother’ trope and having said that, I do enjoy most forbidden romances I come across.

➦I've only listened to this book last week and I've already had to re-read the blurb in order to remember the storyline here. I remember this book being pretty fast paced and rather short. I also remember wishing for more of something.

This is my favorite Kendall Ryan book to date! It was exactly what I needed - light, funny, and sexy!
Smith and Evie's story is sweet and engaging. I highly recommend it!

Here's the breakdown: Smith is Evie's brother's best friend. They grew up together and have a great friendship. Her brother, Cullen, has recently taken over the family business and brings on Evie and Smith to assist him. In an attempt to have a "re-do" of her first time, Evie devises a plan with her BFF to finally seduce Smith.

I’m surprised too, but this book just didn’t do it for me.
Smith Hamilton and Evie Reed had known each other forever. So what kept them on the friend zone all this time? That would be Evie’s older brother who’s also Smith’s best friend, Cullen Reed.

Smith Hamilton was adopted when he was six years old and his love life during his twenty-nine years of existence can be summed up to meaningless sex and short relationships.

The Play Mate by far is my favorite Kendall Ryan novel. It is fun and sexy, and I adore Smith and Evie. They are my favorite Kendall Ryan couple and characters.

From the opening pages, I fell in love with Evie. After graduating college and backpacking, she is taking control of her life, and she is going after who and what she wants with no regard to anyone or anything. I absolutely love this about her. She isn't a complete ball buster, though. There is a vulnerabi

In THE PLAY MATE, Kendall Ryan tackled one of my favorite tropes beautifully: falling in love with the brother's best friend.

Smith and Cullen have been best friends forever. Cullen's little sister, Evie, who was seven years younger, often tagged along and was sort of a kid sister to the both of them. Evie has been crushing on Smith for oh so long. Now they're all adults and after an encounter to ditch her V-card left her unsatisfied, Evie decides to seduce Smith int

Sweet, light, sexy and fun!!!!! If you haven’t read a Kendall Ryan book, then I’m here to tell you that you need to rectify that immediately because you do not want to miss out on a swoonworthy romance. In her latest to the Roommate Series, Ryan tackles a beloved romance trope: older brother’s best friend.

The Play Mate is lighthearted and fun to read. It’s fast paced and Kendall Ryan goes straight to the crux of the story, which is Evie wanting to resolve her longtime infatuation and attraction to her older brother’s best friend. But the story is not just about her, it’s about two people who have known each other for ever, who are happy to be in each other’s lives, and have a lot to lose if they cross the friendship line.

The Play Mate is a standalone and is part of the Roommates series. This is Smith and Evie’s story. Smith is Evie’s older brother’s best friend. YUP!

I love me an older brother best friend book.

After reading a few serious books, I was excited to start The Play Mate. I wanted a fun and easy going read. The Play Mate is a happy, low angst and adorable read. It’s a crush to lovers’ kind of book. It gave me all the wiggly feels and squishes in my belly as I was reading.

This is exactly what I needed - a lighthearted, fun, and sexy friends to lovers romance with a touch of taboo (best friend's little sister). I could not put this book down or wipe the goofy smile from my face while reading. This is book 2 in the author's Roommates series, but can be read as a complete stand alone.

Smith had me swooning from the start and I could not get enough of him. The story is told from both his and Evie's points of views, but I really loved Smith's chapters best. His inner d

I am not new to Kendall Ryan's work, this isn't my first rodeo with her, and everytime I finish her book I always think to myself, I fucking knew it. Makes me also think why I bother sometimes, I say blame the hot book cover!

Evie and Smith are your typical, I-fell-inlove-with-my-bestfriend's-sister kind of thing. You can have a front row seat and see how their relationship will grow, how they fell in love and of course we can't forget the well-known conflict of all tim

From The Room Mate to the Play Mate...YASSS!! Kendall Ryan did it again. She really could deliver a story that will really make you feel good. And this is what made me coming back for more of her works and made me loving it. No matter how light hearted the story is, fast paced, no drama, you can get lost into it. That and the fact, that while reading the book, you'll get to imagine that hot bod in the cover. Let's face it, Kendall Ryan writes a beautiful and interesting blurb that'll piqued t

The best relationships begin as friendships.

When fire meets friendship, burning with the flames of desire, that friendship ignites and goes BOOM! Friends to lovers…ahhh…what a perfect match! My perfect match was Kendall Ryan’s latest love story: The Play Mate. The Play Mate is friendship on fire, a romance that burns the body and melts the heart. Oh did my HEART MELT!!!

Can I just say that Kendall Ryan could write the phone book and I would read it! I'm blown away every time I read one of her flirty and romantic love stories. You might not know that I've only recently discovered Ms. Ryan's AWESOMENESS and I have been a HUGE fan ever since. She creates such amazingly colorful characters who make us laugh, cry, and swoon. They are always uber sexy with a nice dose of sweet. It's the PERFECT combination to giving us an all-around fun and entertaining love story.

The Play Mate is another hit for Kendall Ryan, and many readers of romance are going to swoon for this one HARD. Why? Because the slightly taboo relationship is sure to many anyone hot (you will fall for Smith immediately), and the sass that comes off the pages will make you laugh. The characters are highly likable, the banter is on point and fun, and the build up to the "AH HA" moment is absolutely adorable. Having been a fan of the aut

The Play Mate is fun, sexy, and completely enticing! It contains everything a older brother's best friend romance should have, and so much more. This story follows Smith and Evie's journey from friends to lovers, while navigating their tricky working relationship and friendship with Evie's older brother, Cullen. Lust, laughter, and racy lingerie add a richness to this already swoony romance.

The character dynamic between Smith and Evie is incredibly enjoyable and

Book Two of the Roommates Standalone series brings us the story of Smith Hamilton and Evie Reed. He’s her brother’s best friend and she’s the girl that Smith can’t stop fantasizing about, even knowing it’s wrong. But Evie is all grown up and is dead set to hit the reset button and seduce Smith so that she can finally put a checkmark in the box of having good sex. Added bonus for Evie – finally having sex with her crush will make it easy to move on and finally let go.... right?

I love how the book started the second you read the first page, we're introduced to her plan to seduce him and everything happens fast paced after that.

☾I thought it was interesting how it was introduced that Smith was adopted towards the end of the book, I feel like that should have been brought up more in the beginning. His

Rosalie's review:

Evie Reed has always been Cullen Smith'a little sister to Smith Hamilton. Best friend's little sister than he always picked on. But as the trio got older, Smith began to look at her a little differently. The more they get together as they get older, the more Smith realizes that she is everything he could ever want in a woman and can't get her out of his head.

Evie has only had one real sexual experience and even counting that as one is a stretch. The crush she has had on Smith h

“Smith Hamilton was my older brother’s best friend. And come tomorrow night, he wouldn’t know what him him.
The feminist inside me beat on her chest and let out a battle cry.
I was doing this.
I would make Smith my bitch.
And zero fucks would be given.”
