I didn’t think it was completely bad!
Shocking!! That was my first
reaction to this contemporary
novel. However, by the end of the
first chapter, I was so engaged
with the characters that I couldn’t
put the book down. These
characters are so well developed
that you’ll find yourself rooting
for them-all the way from
Michigan to Denver. And true love
does conquer all!

Really good book I loved it and wouldn’t mind reading it Again
I really wanted to like this book but the male character was not well written.
Great read, unfortunately couldn’t stop reading it so I finished it in a few hours! Excited to read some more of this authors book!
story was plain okay.
I enjoyed reading The Room Mate. I liked the storyline and thought it was funny as well. Cannon's a good guy who always tries to make the best out of a bad situation. Paige is best friend's with Cannon's sister Allie which causes a few bumps in the road. I liked them as a couple, they're cute together. However I feel like I should know more about them as individuals; I feel like I don't know a whole lot about them, especially Paige. I still enjoyed it and thought it was a good book, I just think there could have been a bigger connection made. I still rooted for them, but I felt like something was missing.
This book was my first Kendall Ryan book but it will not be my last. I loved everything about this book. I was hooked from the first page and didn't want to put it down nor did I want it to end.
Loved the fact that Cannon was a few years younger than Paige. I also loved that he had a crush on her growing up but she never knew. But when he needs a place to stay, his sister (her BFF) suggests Cannon stay with Paige. Their physical attraction is instant but they begin to get to know the grown up versions of each other and things develop into more.
Obviously neither one of them let the other one know that they feel more because it wasn't suppose to be anything serious. Will these two be able to speak up and let the other one know before Cannon moves on with his doctor residency, possibly out of state.
One click this book now and you will not be disappointed.
Since I read "The House Mate" first, which is the third book in the series, that's the yardstick I feel comfortable using to rate this one, "The Room Mate," the first in the series. Confused yet?
"The Room Mate" doesn't pack the same punch as #3. It's still a cute romance, just not as complex or as compelling a read as the later book. Cannon is an engaging character but I didn't feel as strong a connection with Paige. Maybe because the author doesn't give us the same level of insight into her character as with Cannon, so we don't feel as deep an affinity with her. Or perhaps, her Paige's reluctance to put her heart on the line affects the reader negatively so we don't empathize with her. I had a hard time getting into this story - I was more than halfway through the book before I felt fully engaged. But once there, it held my attention fully. Not sure how I managed the sequence mixup but guess I'll have to download #2 so I don't feel like I missed out.
This was a horrible book. The writing was pretty bad.....I feel like a child wrote it. It could have been good if more effort was put into it. Don't waste your money or brain cells reading this junk.
I try over and over again to read Kendall Ryan books but they all fall short. I love a good trashy book, that takes zero brain power to read but these are about as stimulating as a rock.
