A delicious new single dad standalone romance from New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan! 

Lexington Dane was my brother’s best friend growing up.

We did everything together.

He taught me how to throw a punch, how to change a tire…and he taught me how to kiss. I fell hard and fast, and gave him all my firsts.

I promised I’d wait for him…

But I’m done waiting, because

This trope is beyond sexist and pathetic. The guy breaks the girls heart and completely moves on. He is successful while the poor broken hearted woman sits at home in their small town lining away for him. His respect for her is so low that now he expects her to be his hired help and care for his child with another woman. How does this sound appealing to anyone with self respect? So he got to go out and be the rich playboy bachelor “sowing his wild oats” and now that he was forced to settle down ...more

I love a good brother’s best friend story and add in the second chance romance and single dad with the cutest daughter- I was so ready for this one!

Lexington Dane and Corrigan Stewart dated in secret when they were in high school Corrigan was in love and devastated when Lex left her to live a big life in NYC. Now, a decade later, Lexington is back in town and needs a nanny for his toddler. His best friend recommends his sister, Corrigan, since she’s a teacher and off for the summe
Really over this trope. I'm not sure what's so appealing with being discarded or left behind. While he moved on and has a child with someone else. :\ ...more

I am surprise that I like this book more than I expected. I am not a huge fan of Miss Ryan. Her NA romance has a lot of misses with me. Penthouse Prince is a nice surprise.

The story is short so there is not much character development or drama on the story. The story of single dad mixed with second chance romance got my attention. I wish I can have more groveling from Lexington. But like I said, short story.

Overall I enjoy the book very much.

Penthouse Prince is a full length standalone second chance romance novel by Kendall Ryan. In this we meet single dad Lexington Dane and school teacher Corrigan Stewart.

Corrigan secretly dated her brother's best friend Lex when they were in high school. Things between them were great. They were young, happy and in love. But that all changed when he left her and moved to New York. She gave him her heart and he completely crushed it. Now, ten years later, he's back in North Carolina along with his

The writing style isn't as enticing as I expected. So that sums everything up I guess as I wasn't motivated to read it further.

The plotting I must say is good but writing didn't do justice to the good storyline.

Also the story's way too fast pace for my liking.

“…there’s no way in hell I’m falling for her hot-as-sin daddy…” >> famous last words people! LOL

You guys, there is nothing better than reading a single parent romance journey where the child steals the show right from under them! OH MY HEART! I’m sucker for kids people! HUGE sucker and Grier stole the whole darn thing! This story could have easily been a conflict heavy storyline, but Kendall chose differently, and I am so glad for it! Lexington and Corrigan’s past never felt like a roadblock in

This second chance romance has the cutest little girl and a sexy single daddy. Both will steal your heart. They were the perfect combination to win back his first love.

Ten years ago, the guy Corrigan fell in love with dumped her and walked away. She was still in high school and he was headed for college. She gave her heart away and he crushed it. Even after a decade, it still hurts.

Lex is back in town. When he left for college, he never came back home after. He headed to NYC and became the real

FIVE SECOND CHANCE STARS for Corrigan and Lex 💛🖤💛🖤!!!


One more great Kendall's book that made me smile and laugh a lot!

"Penthouse Prince" is a second chance romance with brother's best friend and single dad tropes.

Corrigan is a sweet female character whose heart is made of gold.

Lex is a male character who has everything that a woman can wish for in a man.

Corrigan and Lex's relationship is pure fire and full of feels!

If you're looking for a single dad romance and you also love Kendall's writi

Gosh! If a man dumped me and never looked for me for 10 years and then came back asking me to be the nanny of the child he has with another woman, I would ask him nicely to go screw himself. And oh, why the heroines can’t resist a handsome man? Is that hard? It excludes all the bad things he has done?
Stories like that aren’t romantic or sweet.

Single dad, second chance romance. Short, sweet with much push & pull but very predictable. Im very tired of reading about the guy who dump the girl and goes on to live his life, have a child & return and tries to pick up where he left off & of course it works out because the female has been pining for him for years 🙄🙄

Whose fantasy is it to be left behind while the guy lives his best life and has a kid with somebody else and the comes back to hire you as a nanny? This is such a tired trope. Never do we see the women left behind become rich and successful. Why is that?

Are you a sucker for a single dad, bestfriends sister, second chance romance with an adorable 2 year old that will melt your heart? If you answered yes then you absolutely need to read this book!

Lexington Dane is everything you could want.....successful, wealthy, hot as hell and an amazing father to Grier. Corrigan is a beautiful, sassy, loving woman with a heart of gold and Lexington's ex. Lexington and Corrigan were high school sweethearts but when he left her behind it tore Corrigan apart and

Spicy, sexy, and sincere!

Penthouse Prince is an adorably heartfelt, second-chance romance that features the sweet, dependable Corrigan and the handsome, successful, single-father Lex as they navigate a relationship that includes a high school romance that ended badly, undeniable attraction, smouldering tension, and a precocious, cute-as-a-button toddler.

The writing is effortless and fluid. The characters are hesitant, generous, and endearing. And the plot is the perfect combination of family, fr

I truly loved every page of this book.
There is nothing sexier to me then seeing a father love their child. So reading a book about a single Dad is even sexier.
Lexington Dane is so many things. And let me tell you it was very easy to fall in love with him. Putting aside his wealth, I loved the fact that he uprooted his life for his family. That is beyond amazing. He had a huge life that he built in New York. But something very important made him go back home, I loved all the feels with this
