Smith Hamilton has it all—he's smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he's not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm's length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him. Evie Reed knows she's blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family's lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She's crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way. Except that when Evie's plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.
REVIEW - 4 STARS!
************************The Play Mate is book two in the Roommates series by Kendall Ryan. If you're looking for fun, sweet and sexy romance, this is it! This is Evie and Smith's story...a friends to lovers read that will leave with a huge smile!
The feminist inside me beat on her chest and let out a battle cry. I was doing this. I would make Smith my bitch. And zero fucks would be given.
Smith Hamilton is successful, gorgeous, smart and the guy that Evie Reed is determined to seduce. However there is a small snag...he's her brothers best friend. For years she's had a crush on him, but he's only seen her as the cute little sister to Cullen. Or has he? Evie is set to make Smith hers for one night. Will her plan work?
Evie has grown up so much in the last few years it's hard for Smith not too notice that she turned into a beautiful bombshell of a woman. The woman of his forbidden fantasies, the girl who he has to resist for many reasons. He has too much to lose if he crosses the line with her, but he's drawn to her. She gets him and he feels like himself around her. With Smith's self control put to the test, will he finally truly see her? Will they give into temptation and have a fling? Or will this turn into something more?
These two had great chemistry. I found myself chuckling at the banter between them. It has that awkward, yet comfortable feel too it. Both want each other and are seeing one another in a different light. However, fearing Cullen will disown them, they must tread lightly. I loved that they formed a friendship and knew each other for years before jumping into things. Spending time together secretly is starting to weigh on them, but
when feelings start coming forth all bets are off!
Told from dual POV's you get to experience both of their wants and desires. Kendall Ryan gives us a light and entertaining read that delivers a fantastic HEA! This is a complete standalone, however Cannon and Paige's story is just as good! I can't wait to read more in the series...Kendall has a winner on her hands with this series! 4 Daredevil Stars!
