Welcome to Hollywood, where wet dreams come true.

I fell for Marlee the second I met her- gorgeous smile, unimpressed by my stardom… bendy.

Not even remotely interested in me.

Of course the girl of my dreams has to be engaged to her hometown high-school sweetheart. Nothing’s ever easy, right?

Until they break up.
And she moves in with me.

Oh. My. Gosh. Jake!

Jake’s story was everything I thought it would be and more. I love him, I love Marlee and I loved their story, wow.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

After finishing Close (the first book to this series) I knew immediately that I needed to read Jake‘s story Want and to say I’m happy I did would be an understatement.

Jake and Marlee have an interesting relationship throughout this book and it keeps you intrigued from the first page.

Want is the second book in the Ryder Brothers series by Kayti McGee. This is the first book I've read by Kayti and it won't be my last. I love these brothers! They are funny and sexy and totally jerky to each other! It's so great! Jake is the brother who doesn't love performing. He loves writing music, composing and singing. He met Marlee, his best friend, on the set of one of his music videos. She was a fantastic dancer and he wanted to get to know her better. They became fast friends and no

Jake and Marlee are so perfect together!!! But of course there is always one person that doesn't see it.... In this case it's Marlee! And she doesn't even see how he really feels about her despite the fact that it's written all over him! 💙. The book was 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 hot!!! The chemistry with these 2 is off the charts! This was a new to me author and I think I've found another one to love!!! Great couple. Great story. Just absolutely loved!!! ...more

Jake wants to make sure his girl knows he has her back, “so what do you need me to do, Marlee?” he finally asks from between gritted teeth. “Cut off his balls and stuff them where his eyes used to be?” Marlee likes to keep her man on his toes, "hey, guess what?” she says. “Not only am I improving, I’m also not wearing underwear.” I immediately drop my tentacle." There are times Jake has to school his girl, "let me instruct you in another lesson. When a man asks if you’re sore, you tell him yes a

OH, my heavens! I thought Nick was a god, but Jake just too it up a level!!
This book was so much more than I thought it was going to be. Jake is a true sweetheart and a man, who although he’s in love, doesn’t realize it or want it to be known, because the girl he’s fallen for is his bestie… and now, his roommate!
Marlee left her hometown and state to move to L.A in the hopes of becoming a star. She’s a dancer./actress and when Jake offers to let her stay with him, she jumps at the chance. Now, sh

Kayti McGee is a new author to me but as soon as I saw she was writing the second book in the Ryder Brothers Series I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and I loved it so I certainly need to look at other books by this talented author.

Let me start my review off by saying that, despite the fact that I am rating this novel three stars - and I'll be getting to my reason why in a moment - Want has to be one of the cutest and most adorable reads that I have read this year, and that is thanks to the fact that I absolutely adored the way Kayti McGee showed me the friendship and love between ex-boyband member turned soloist rock star Jake Ryder, and actress on the rise Marlee Reed;

Jake.... Jake...... Jake....... is what i was saying through the whole book. I loved how he was confident but he wasn't an arse about his fame. He was your average guy doing a job. That is until he meets Marlee and they become roommates. Marlee is off limits because she is engaged but Jake still has feelings for her and tries to keep them in check until the opportunity is right. When the opportunity arises he jumps at the chance to be with Marlee.

This was such a cute book. The boy band brother who has been trying to find his own way with a midwestern sweet and innocent girl trying to become a star in hollywood. This was one of those stories that grabbed my attention from the beginning and held it to the end. Enjoyable read for me! Can't wait for book 3. ...more

Marlee: You’ll forget about me sooner than you think. Let me be someone else’s problem now.

Jake: I wanted to show her that she was enough, more than enough, but I was a fool to think I could do that. She never really wanted me.

This sums up theirs relationship to a T. Marlee and Jake were so freaking cute together but also so frustrating. The good kind of frustration and *fans herself* were so hot together. Who knew the whole teacher/student trope was so hot?!?! I guess I needed a good refresher

Want is the second book in the Ryder Brothers series. This is Jake’s story and written by Kayti McGee. The first book, Close is written by Laurelin Paige, and the final book, More will be written by JD Hawkins. You can read each one as standalone but I do recommend reading them in order. The brothers’ banter throughout is hilarious.

It was love at first sight for Jake Ryder. Marlee didn’t care about his fame. She talked to him like he was a regular guy off the street. And after the

This is one of those books that entertains you from start to finish ... and it also leaves you with NEEDS.

Jake and Marlee are roommates who work out a certain arrangement intended to help her secure a job on a TV series. Let's just say that Jake has a particular skill set that can help Marlee attain her goals.

I'm not going to tell you that this book is a searing portrait of character development. What I will tell you that it is witty and erotic, the sort of sexy romantic comedy at which Kayti Mc

Sooo Sexxxy LOL Page Turner ... The Rhythm Between these Hollywood Couple is off the charts!!!

I love when a writer goes against trope. And WANT delivers. Rock God Smoldering Jake is smitten with his gorgeous sensual roommate Marlee from the first pages. Their mutual seduction is so unconventional, when I wasn't laughing I was swooning at the fantastic visual delights McGee conjured in my mind.

Jake and Marlee have this incredible connection. My favorite hook I think is how she wrote Jake's music

I absolutely LOVED this book! This series so far has been dynamite and Kayti McGee has truly added fuel to the fire with Want! I think Jake might be my favorite - hot and humble. And Marlee is refreshing. These two fit perfectly together even though at times it wasn’t completely them.

In line with the series, and keeping the momentum going, Want is definitely a page-turner and full of interesting and colorful characters. The dialogue and situations that Jake and Marlee are placed i

Marlee and Jake are friends, and roommates. He's successful (known as one of the members of a boy ban with his brothers) and she is working her way into the business.

Marlee lands a big part...with a catch. And, she needs Jake to help her out, or one of the details of the contract is going to cause an issue.

And, as it always does, friends to lovers romances are full of heat, and attraction, and friendship. I loved how totally fond of another they were. They really

Woah buddy. There’s a lot to unpack here. Because there’s absolutely nothing to unpack here because this book had absolutely no plot to speak of. And I’m annoyed and disappointed. Quite frankly, I only finished this book because it was pretty short and I skimmed the last 40% of it. And because I’m willing to give the third book in the series a shot, I felt like I needed to know what happened in this one.

When I read Close, I wasn’t totally sold on the book, but I found it to be a fun weekend read

These brothers are the stuff dreams are made of...

Want is all about Jake and his bendy new friend. Yes, I said bendy. Think contract...yes, a naughty contract.
Teacher/student role play...
And a V-card.

The former boy band hunk makes friends with the dancer from his video. Falls for her awesomeness and fresh outlook on life. Too bad she has other plans.

Marlee is a dancer from the Midwest. She has been trying to make it in LA. She has the contract of a lifetime but has a small problem. She enlists her roommate Jake, a member of the famous boy band the Ryder brothers to help her out.

Hot and sweet romance. This is a great friends to lovers romance. Jake is an excellent teacher and Marlee is a perfect student. Jake is super hot and swoony. Marlee is a believable small town girl. Really fun, terrific read.

A friend's to lovers romance.

I loved the first book in the series and was excited to learn there were 2 other sexy rock star brothers. Unfortunately, it fell short in a few things.

I think Marlee and me got off on the wrong foot or maybe we didn't?

Marlee moves to L.A and becomes Jakes flatmate, Marlee and Jake first met when she was a dancer on one of his videos, now Marlee is wanting to step up in her career and auditions for a part in a movie after moving in with Jake in L.A. Now this is wer

Want, is definitely the correct title for this book. I mean, holy moly, the intense lust between these two main characters, is off the charts. Actually, this whole book is mostly just a huge sex fest. But, with saying that, it didn't feel like a horrible smutty, sex for the sake of sex, book. This was well written and I adored Jake as our male hero.

Want is book 2 the Ryder Brothers trilogy and features Jake and Marlee. The Ryder Brothers were a boy band and were really popular when they were together. Their band is no longer together, but two of the three brothers (Nick and Jake) have solo careers. This story is told in dual POVs. Jake initially met Marlee on the set of one of his videos when it was filming in Kansas City. She had been hired as a dancer, but eventually got the job to re-choreograph the dance numbers in Jake’s video. After ...more

Sooooooooooooooo, this book … hmmmmmm

Sometimes, it’s really hard to put into words why a book may or may not have worked for you. This is one of those times.

Okay, so when I read Close (Ryder Brothers #1), I was ridiculously happy with the everything about it. I could not wait to continue with the Ryder boys. I think maybe I went into this story with expectations I shouldn’t have had. But I did, even tho I shouldn’t have, and it took me a while to get into this book. The two authors have ver
