From the time I was a kid, I knew I wanted a job helping people. After serving in the Rifles regiment of the British Army, I focused my civilian career on becoming a bodyguard to the rich and famous. For a Cockney Brit, I never imagined a twist of fate landing me a position in the United States Secret Service and protecting the President’s son. But then my boss made an une ...more

This was definitely the best book in the series in my opinion. I was on the fence with continuing the series after Office Mate which I was conflicted on but I am glad I powered through to finish the series.

Ty has been a predominant side character in the previous two books initially as a bodyguard and then a secret service agent. It was about time we got to know this illustrious British agent. Ty is honorable, loyal and attentive to the people in his life and his job (which in this case is protec

I enjoyed this book. I m was dying for more of the Callahan's and Ty. Ty has been part of the secret service and security team for the Callahan's for years. He has been with Barrett Thorn and Caroline. With the threat being bad against Caroline Ty was the best guy for the job and President knew he could trust his only daughter with him. He just didn't thing that putting them together would end up then getting together. It wasn't a easy ride for them both with Carol

"He was like James Bond on steroids in his tux. I was used to the suit porn he sported on a daily basis, but man, there was something about the fit of the black tux that made me all warm and tingly."

When Caroline started complaining about having Ty as a roommate it crossed my mind to suggest a psych evaluation. I mean seriously, who would refuse 24/7 eye candy, right? But, I have to give her credit, she's not stuck up and bossy like you'd think a first daughter would be, she's got a big hear

“I was about to inherit a roommate. A male roommate. A six foot-four, built like a brick shithouse, swoony British accent speaking, Chris Hemsworth-looking male roommate.”

Caroline is the daughter of the current President of The United States. She has been getting threats (unbeknownst to her) and is in dire need of more protection. That’s were Ty comes in. He is a secret service agent and friends with her brothers. Her father gives Ty the job to protect his inky daughter but he needs him not
This is the third installment in a series. This was a really enjoyable book. I really like friends to lovers stories, and this was a good one. Ty is so salt of the earth good, and Caroline is the perfect woman for him. I really enjoyed their bantering. I really liked Caroline, too. She has a great family, and she knows her own mind. It was really fun seeing them fall for each other. I really enjoyed reading this book.

I loved this book. The romance was slow building, but there was a lot of steam leading up to it. It is part of a series. I would suggest reading the others, but you sure can jump right into this one if you wish. I just loved Ty's character. Caroline's character was perfect for her role of the President's daughter. The book just flowed. Dual point of view. No cliffhanger. ...more

Caroline Callahan is preparing to start a new career, but the carefully laid plans she has are derailed when a threat causes her to need an increased Secret Service detail. But even with a threat out there, she isn’t the type to hide away. She is determined to continue on with her new job as planned, if with a different roommate than originally planned.

Now, the princess/president's daughter etc falling for their security man is not a new story - however it is one that I will always pick up and read.

I have been waiting for Caroline's story since I started reading this series. I knew, that with 2 protective brothers and the president for her father that she was going to have her struggles.

I love love love that she (nor her brothers) are spoiled little rich kids, riding on their father's coat tails.

Caroline Callahan was just about ready to start her new career and new life in a new place. She had it all planned out...until her plans were changed due to circumstances out of her control.

Ty Fraser has been friend and bodyguard to both of her older brothers, Barrett and Thorn. He is honorable, dependable, and vigilant. And now he is being asked to take on Caroline's security due to a threat. That means not only following her to Virginia, but they want him to have full in

Room Mate is a standalone novel by Katie Ashley.  I have been a reader of her books since I started my blog almost six year ago.  All of her novels have a different feel to them which I enjoy.  It's like a new piece of Katie each time she publishes.

In the Room Mate we have two characters, Ty and Caroline.  Ty is a Secret Service agent sworn to protect the President and his family.  Caroline happens to be the President's daughter.  There's a ser

A romance between a bodyguard and his Boss’s daughter in the kind of forbidden romance I absolutely love. The book reminded me of a television series called ‘The Royals’, also based in England.

Caroline- an impulsive girl, who is trying really hard to adjust her life between her President’s daughter and a creepy stalker who means her harm. Enter Ty- an agent with the United States Secret Service, also known as Caroline’s personal bodyguard and roommate.

Their journey starts with friendly banters a

This was so good and the first book I have read by this author but definitely not the last! Caroline Callahan is the first daughter and setting off on a new career but she has a serious security threat and so her father, The President, has assigned Ty Fraser as her lead security member and her new room mate. Ty has protected both of her brothers and is considered practically a member of the family by all but this information does not go over too good with Caroline. Let me say, it was refreshing ...more

This is the third book in the Running Mate series by Katie Ashley.

This was a really fun read. It flew by so fast just like book one did!

Basic premise: She is the President’s daughter and someone is sending her death threats. In order to protect her, her father sends Ty and a team of agents to be with her as she starts her new career. Things get heated when they learn that the two of them have to live together and get to know each other better than they ever have before.

Caroline was the only daughter of the president. Despite the fact that they didn't grow up with a silver spoon in their mouths, they had to adhere with the security measures that comes with the fact that their father is the leader of the free world. She was used to overbearing brothers, and just getting used to her Secret Service team when a threat comes in again, just when she was thinking she could have a bit of normal and freedom being away from her family. She ended up with a hot secret serv ...more

When POTUS says you need extra protection because you have a stalker no one dares to say no. Caroline loves her Dad but living in her new West Virginia apartment with a Secret Service Agent who is a Greek God made man is going to be tricky!

She is independent and he is overprotective, yet somehow, they become friends. Living together is not easy... especially when you have to share a shower! This is when rules come in handy. So whoever said rules were made to be broken?

Cheesy, fun, sexy and so very delightful, this author writes wonderful stories about the heart. You want to meet the characters in her stories, get to befriend them and live in their world. She writes characters with honor and values, even if they’re a little crazy (like Barrett) or very serious (like Thorn), they are all likable and friendly.

In this installment of the Callahan siblings, Caroline, the youngest and only daughter of Presiden Callahan, is being targeted by a stalker. The stalker ha

Another amazing read by Katie Ashley. I just love how she writes her stories. They are always unputdownable :) :)
This was a perfect mix of swoon, angst and feels. Both characters were likable and I loved how protective Ty was of Caroline.

I really enjoyed Room Mate. Caroline and Ty were perfect for each other and I am so glad they got their HEA. This book had a lot of elements I love while reading. It was fun, sexy and had a little suspense to it. I also love the updates from the other characters in the previous books. The Epilogue was heartwarming and had me smiling for them.

What a fun book. The daughter of the President is a seriously down to earth girl. Her surprise Agent is one HOT man. Together they face the stalkers, breakups and goof-ups of life, all while falling in love. A very sweet love story, with a bit of action and some drama! Perfect for a rainy afternoon.

What an awesome addition to the Callahan Clan, Caroline is the only daughter of the President and Ty is the hot secret service-room mate, really enjoyed Caroline and Ty, I will admit it started off slow but certainly picked up very quickly, liked the banter between the couple and loved hearing from Barrett and Thorn.
The Epilogue was great.

Out of 3 books in the series, this was slightly better.
At least it let me at see their relationship development eventhough it's quite unbelievable but since Ty is a sweet character and Caroline is somewhat a fighter, than it become an okay story for me.

Room Mate is a quick read and emotionally engaging. We have already met the delectable Ty in both Running Mate and Office Mate, the hottie secret service agent with a heart as big as his *cough* hands 😉

Who would have thought that a personal threat on Caroline's life would turn into being the BEST thing that could happen to a girl ??

Ty was assigned personally by the President to keep Caroline safe while she was in Charleston or until the stalker was caught .. When there friendship started to take a turn to becoming more neither of them knew how to stop it or if it even began before he became her RoomMate .. Nothing was going to stop there feelings ..
