Book Review: The Bed Mate 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?

Favorite Words: “The kiss was hesitant at first. Searching. A question more than an answer, but as her lashes fluttered closed, I wrapped my arms around her tighter.”

My obsession with the 1001 Dark Nights novellas continue.

Maggie and Sam are best friends. They have been best friends since college. Sam has never told Maggie he is in love with her. So when her boyfriend decides to be a horrible person and cheat on her, she goes on a little vacation with Sam and his friends.

Yes, I know the setup sounds cliché, but it’s a great little story. Maggie’s love of everything Christmas speaks to me since I love Christmas, and because the holiday season is upon us. I thought that Sam was a huge sweetheart and I would totally want to make out with him under the mistletoe.

There aren’t a ton of steamy scenes in this one but I’m totally ok with it because the story is just that sweet. Definitely read this one with some nice hot cocoa, a hot toddy, or just a nice glass of red wine.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
