Review – The Play Mate by Kendall Ryan


Kendall Ryan is a rock star!  Seriously, she’s an author but she writes so good, I consider her a writing rock star!  And The Play Mate is her triple platinum album!  I loved this book. Smith and Evie as so awesome, Webster doesn’t have enough words to describe the utter deliciousness that is all them!  Evie has been lusting over Smith, her brother’s best friend, forever and one night she decides to take matters in her own hands.  I about DIED reading the beginning of this book.  I adored Evie for both her brazen personality and witty charm.  Smith himself is one cool customer…he’s smoking hot and broody…and has been fighting the way Evie has made him feel for a long time.  How they manage to fight it when they have such blatant chemistry is beyond be but fight it as hard as they can, they did!  The Play Mate is one seriously long, drawn out session of foreplay that leaves you gasping for breathe and screaming out at the torturous pleasure just waiting for them to give in.  When that climax hits…the euphoria was astounding.   These two exude so much palpable heat, it’s a wonder people standing in their vicinity don’t burst into flames.  Nothing about this relationship is easy…a plot twist in their working environment and attempting to hide their relationship from Evie’s brother are two of the obstacles they face but the journey you take with them, from beginning to end, is very much worth the outcome.  The Play Mate kept me up all night….I literally stayed up until 4 am reading this book.  It was so addicting I couldn’t put it down.  If you love the brother’s best friend trope, this book is definitely one you do not want to miss.  The plot is engaging, the banter both humorous and snarky, the sex scenes are an out-of-body experience, and the love story….one for the record books.  You definitely don’t want to delay in reading this book!  I can’t wait to see what Ms. Ryan treats us with next!  5 stars!


the-play-mate-kendall-ryanSmith 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.
