The last time I saw my best friend’s younger brother, he was a geek wearing braces. But when Cannon shows up to crash in my spare room, I get a swift reality check.

Now twenty-four, he’s broad shouldered and masculine, and so sinfully sexy, I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to enjoy. At six-foot-something with lean muscles hiding under his T-shirt, a deep sexy voice, and full lips that pull into a smirk when he studies me, he’s pure temptation.

Fresh out of a messy breakup, he doesn’t want any entanglements. But I can resist, right?

I’m holding strong until the third night of our new arrangement when we get drunk and he confesses his biggest secret of all: he’s cursed when it comes to sex. Apparently he’s a god in bed, and women instantly fall in love with him.

I’m calling bullshit. In fact, I’m going to prove him wrong, and if I rack up a few much-needed orgasms in the process, all the better.

There’s no way I’m going to fall in love with Cannon. But once we start…I realize betting against him may have been the biggest mistake of my life.

This is my very first book by Kendall Ryan and I am happy to say that I loved everything about it.  She brings us a sexy doctor in the making that has a curse of women falling in love with him after one night.  This curse doesn’t just make women fall in love with him but go absolutely mad for him, which is why he moves in with Paige for his last two months of rotation.  It should be easy living except Cannon and Paige experience some intense sparks flying around and if acted upon, this theory of instant, crazy love could take over Paige and the history between the two could be destroyed, not to mention the friendship between Allie (Cannon’s older sister and Paige’s best friend) and Paige. But Cannon and Paige’s sparks were hot and hard to ignore when stuck inside Paige’s small place so a deal is made and a theory is tested and things get even hotter.

Let me just say that Cannon was absolutely perfect in every way.  He was a true gentleman but a dirty flirt when it came down to it.  I loved the post-it notes and sweet things he left for Paige to find throughout his stay and the fact that he was a doctor made him even more smoldering.  Paige was just an average woman, which I loved, but when seen through Cannon’s eyes she was so much more.  Their times together were cute, funny, sexy-hot, and a little dangerous…basically they were perfect holed up in their shared space but life comes in and knocks a few walls down so the world can see in and it causes some problems.
