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.

5 Stars from Brianna!
Kendall Ryan... you slay me with your words lay. Gah, the day I ran across a book by her... I was an instant fan and since that first one... I haven't looked back. Ryan is an amazing wordsmith and storyteller... always taking readers on a journey packed with heart, heat, lust, love, and passion.
The Play Mate is a standalone contemporary romance (and second in the Roommates series) that left my heart beating a little faster and me squirming in my seat. Evie and Smith took me on an incredibly journey that was sexy, sweet, and fun with loads of sexual tension, dashes of angst, and undeniable chemistry that rolled off the pages as their story progressed.
Did I swoon and get ALL the feels? Fuck yes.
Did I fall into lust immediately? You betcha.
Did I love these two hard by the end? Definitely.
Evie and Smith... he's her brother's best friend. They shouldn't want each other... but they do. They should resist temptation but sometimes it's too sweet to pass up. For these two, it's about to get a while lot of complicated.
I loved loved loved these two! Their banter and chemistry... brilliantly penned. Sure it wasn't easy for these two every step of the way but man was their story compelling, enticing, and completely addicting in the best kinds of ways.
If you like sweet and sexy words with enough drama to keep you hanging on to every little word, give this author a try today.... you totally won't be disappointed.
I highly recommend this book.
