My Brother’s Roommate by Kendall Ryan Review



* * * * * * * * * *


There are a few things you should know about my brother’s roommate.

Wolfie Cox is . . . complicated. Terminally sexy, and more importantly, he has an impressive stick lodged so far up his ass, he’s about as emotionally available as a chinchilla. Actually, that might be an insult to the chinchilla community.

So, naturally, I want to ride him like a bicycle.

He thinks I hate him. Mostly because I’ve led him to believe this. It’s easier than admitting the alternative.

And while Wolfie is about as soft and cuddly as a fork, I’m the opposite. A good girl. Reliable. Conscientious. Oh, and completely panicked about an upcoming work conference.

Wolfie’s usually allergic to altruism, so when my brother volun-tells him to help me out by escorting me to said conference where everyone else will have a plus-one . . . I say thanks, but no thanks. Surprisingly, Wolfie is unflinching about this. And that’s the story about how I got stuck in a hotel with my brother’s hot (grouchy) roommate.

Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

In all seriousness, this isn’t a game to me, and hormones aside, I need to impress my boss this week so the promotion I’ve worked hard for doesn’t get handed to his spineless nephew. But with Wolfie and me sharing a hotel bed, things get confusing quickly.

My Brother’s Roommate, the second book in Kendall Ryan’s Frisky Business series, was a best friend’s little sister romance between Wolfie and Penelope. Wolfie was a quiet, broody, complicated guy, and he absolutely revered Penelope, but believed that such a perfect girl could never be interested in a guy like him. Penelope was ambitious and sweet, and she definitely had a thing for Wolfie, her older brother’s roommate and business partner, but assumed he wasn’t interested. Wolfie isn’t the typical hero, he believed he was broken, and as his story unfolds, it’s easy to understand why. My heart ached for him and what he went through, and I rooted him on as he took on his demons to take the chance he desperately wanted with Penelope. I loved Penelope – she was so genuine and patient. They had a natural chemistry between them but it was fragile because of Wolfie’s history. Penelope never gave up on him, and it was that unwavering belief that gave Wolfie the courage to take on his demons to give the best version of himself to Penelope.

My Brother’s Roommate was not your typical light and breezy contemporary romance from Kendall Ryan. There was a difficult story to be told, and Ryan treated it with care and respect. I loved Wolfie and Penelope’s story, and it was a heartwarming and emotional love story about overcoming your past to get the future you deserve.  Kendall Ryan delivered a consuming love story about a tortured, broken hero getting his chance at love, and I devoured every word of it. My Brother’s Roommate by Kendall Ryan gets 4.5 smooches from me!
