The Play Mate
Book 2, Roommates
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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 Flirty and Fun stars
The Play Mate is a standalone and is part of the Roommates series. This is Smith and Evie’s story. Smith is Evie’s older brother’s best friend. YUP!
I love me an older brother best friend book.
After reading a few serious books, I was excited to start The Play Mate. I wanted a fun and easy going read. The Play Mate is a happy, low angst and adorable read. It’s a crush to lovers’ kind of book. It gave me all the wiggly feels and squishes in my belly as I was reading.
Evie has a mega crush on Smith. What’s not to like? With a 7 age gap, Smith is all dreamy and perfect in Evie’s eyes. I like an age gap. Can’t really explain it, since it’s not taboo really, maybe because I feel like Smith is this successful has his head on his shoulders kind of guy and Evie is still trying to find herself in the career world.
Smith can’t do anything with Evie because his best friend will kill him. But it’s kind of hard not to lust after your best friend’s little sister when you work with her at a lingerie company! Cute right? The brother, Evie and Smith all work together.
This book is a NA book, but it’s not just all steam, there’s some cute moments and a lot of character buildup. I like that Evie and Smith have a friendship at first and the way they bond is all smiles. I even like the brother! Who doesn’t like a protective older brother?
Overall, Kendall Ryan never disappoints and this is another hit for me.
Another sexy winner from Kendall Ryan
If you love a heroine who falls for her older brother’s best friend, you’ll love this flirty, sexy romance. The Play Mate is a delightful and entertaining. Smith is a sweetheart and incredibly sexy. I was impatient for him to man up and deal with the problem of dating his best friend’s little sister, but I understand his trepidation. Evie is pretty darn funny, and I loved how she decided to take the bull by the horns and seduce Smith. She’s a little awkward and amusing – a relatable, everyday girl. They have great chemistry, and their intimate moments are hot. If you’re looking for a something fun and sensual, check out The Play Mate.
