I might be a typical guy, but these last few years, my love life's been anything but. From crazy ex-girlfriends to one night stands who are stage-five clingers, my relationships go bad faster than the milk in your fridge. The only constant has been my best friend Maggie.

Fresh off a bad breakup of her own, I invite Maggie to my guy's skiing weekend knowing she needs an escape from reality. But then something funny starts to happen. I start noticing things about her that I never noticed before.

She's beautiful and doesn't know it, she's funny without even trying, and now she's suddenly single for the first time in forever.

Sharing a hotel room with her proves to be the tipping point in our very platonic friendship. Suddenly I want to put my hands, my mouth, and my ... other parts ... all over her gorgeous body. I want to claim her, make sure no man touches her ever again. But then her groveling ex shows up, and Maggie's torn.

Am I ready to screw up the best relationship I've ever had for a shot at something more?

4 hot toddy and hot tub stats for THE BED MATE!

Maggie and Sam have been BFF's since they met in college. Now, several years and significant others later, they both find themselves single and together at a cozy ski lodge in Colorado. Sam had been in love with Maggie since day one but it's never been the right time. Can he take advantage of the romantic location to finally let his perfect woman know how he feels?

THE BED MATE is a novella in the Roommates series and a stand-alone addition to the innovative and fun 1001 Dark Nights series featuring sensual and erotic stories by a variety of popular authors inspired by the classic The Arabian Nights tale.

I'm obsessed with Ms. Ryan's sexy world of regular men and women who find the love of their lives…sometimes when they least expect it, sometimes when it's right in front of their faces. THE BED MATE's Maggie was clueless about Sam's feelings for her, though after getting out of an 8-year relationship, I can get that. Maggie being not so broken up about said relationship ending after 8-years felt wildly disingenuous though, even though she'd been considering making a break up pro/con list. Whatever, it was hard not to fall in love with Maggie and Sam's potential, especially when we learn he's been in love with her forever. And the sexy snowy setting? Fuggedaboudit. Perfection. Grab this shorty, and all of the Roommates books by Ms. Ryan STAT!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; no condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
