A best friends to lovers standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan.
After a rather uncomfortable ladies' night involving a cucumber-wielding instructor with judgy eyes, I'm forced to admit my weaknesses. Rather than point blame at my lack of a sex life, I'm ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work.
As a junior executive who's clawed her way up the corporate ladder, failure is not in my vocabulary. Confident and bold in other areas of my life, I have to admit it's time to up my bedroom game.
Asking my friend Slate Cruz is really the only option. Slate is like a walking billboard for sex. The man gets more ass than a toilet seat. There's no way I'll want more from this playboy than a little inspiration to revive my inner sex kitten.
Except, what happens if I do?
“The embers of attraction were always there, I’ve come to realize. All it took was one little kiss to blow on the ashes and make them roar to life.”
➜ Audio: Will be read by Andi Arndt & SebYo
Kendall does some tropes really well, and one of them is friends to lovers. This latest one from her proves that. Love Machine was a nice quick sexy and sweet read.
Keaton and Slate cross the line when she wants him to help her get better at sex. Slate jumps at the chance and sexy times ensue.
Slate made this book for me. I loved his POVs, he showed me so much more than she did. It was hard for me to feel the chemistry between them and Keaton was the main reason for that issue. I just never felt it from her. I kinda wanted a little more angst from their struggle to transition from friends to more.
Everything else was on point with this latest release from Kendall. I loved Slate and I hope you take the time to meet him. Kendall’s books are great for a nice afternoon read when you want a quick book to read.
