The last time I saw my best friend's younger brother, he was a geek wearing braces. But when Cannon shows up to crash in my spare room, I get a swift reality check.

Now twenty-four, he's broad shouldered and masculine, and so sinfully sexy, I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to enjoy. At six-foot-something with lean muscles hiding under his T-shirt, a deep sexy voice, and full lips that pull into a smirk when he studies me, he's pure temptation.

Fresh out of a messy breakup, he doesn't want any entanglements. But I can resist, right?

I'm holding strong until the third night of our new arrangement when we get drunk and he confesses his biggest secret of all: he's cursed when it comes to sex. Apparently he's a god in bed, and women instantly fall in love with him.

I'm calling bullshit. In fact, I'm going to prove him wrong, and if I rack up a few much-needed orgasms in the process, all the better.

There's no way I'm going to fall in love with Cannon. But once we start…I realize betting against him may have been the biggest mistake of my life.

4 very sexy, medically induced, 8" orgasmic stars.

After years of thinking with his little head, Cannon Roth's latest bout with an unstable ex-girlfriend has him has him searching out a new place to live. Cannon is determined to buckle down, finish his med school rotation and find a job...and remain sex free (unless it's a dire emergency). Enter new roommate Paige, his sister's BFF, object of his teenage fantasies and the girl who set the standard for his grown up desires. Cannon knows he's in trouble approximately 2 seconds after seeing her again, and Paige is desperately trying not to climb him like a tall, sexy pole about a second after that. Just a few days into their new arrangement, with the help of their little friend alcohol and sexual chemistry, Cannon and Paige begin a wild and erotic secret affair, both knowing it won't end well but helpless to stop the trainwreck from happening. Cannon claims he's cursed by women falling in love with him, but how will he handle it when the tables are turned?

Hahaha! Ms. Ryan always cracks me up! Witness:

I liked vaginas. I really did. But staring into the mouth of one old enough to belong to my grandmother wasn't my idea of an exciting evening. No fucking thank you.

Her sense of humor is so well honed, I absolutely can't get enough of anything Ms. Ryan puts out. And put out she does in THE ROOM MATE, with the sexual chemistry hitting Cannon and Paige immediately and not letting up until the very last page. I cracked up at the absurdity of Paige continuing to see Cannon nekked as soon as he moved in, and I cringed with how assertive Cannon was with Paige – totally shameless and sexy but awkward at the same time. I liked that contradiction between the weird teenage Cannon that Paige last saw and this new delicious specimen she's living with. I can't wait for more in this line of standalone books!

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