The Bed Mate (A Room Mate Novella #3.5) by Kendall Ryan


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?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Told in first person, from dual perspectives, this perfectly paced novella from Kendall Ryan serves as #3.5 of her Room Mate series, but is a great standalone story.  A sexy “…hot and sweet…” & oh so funny “…after that brother-sister comment? Alcohol was the best idea I’d had all day.” , friends to lovers – opposites attract story. “We were as different as night and day, but for some reason, we clicked and I felt more comfortable around him than pretty much anyone else.”  Maggie is the ever so cautious, practical lover of everything wintertime.  While Sam is her opposite – fun loving, adventure seeking great friend.  They’ve been friends forever & know each other better than anyone else.  It’ obvious to friends to everyone, friends & strangers alike that they should be more. “Like we were fated to be.”  The perfect amount of angst, with a sweet ending that won’t disappoint.

I loved this little novella, perfect for a “…cozy evening by a crackling fire…”.  Couldn’t get enough of the ways these characters paid attention to all the little things & fit so well together, so romantic!
