4 Stars!



Bren Matthews is a beautiful, single 30 yr. old woman who loves her job as a zoologist at the city zoo. She wants to let loose & have a little no-strings attached fun. She heads to the local bar & meets the most gorgeous guy she’s ever laid eyes on. She has a night of hot, passionate sex. This man was seriously gifted in the bedroom, but Bren wasn’t interested in a relationship or anything serious. She’d been through a lot in her past, and had some baggage. She tended to pick guys she wouldn’t get emotionally attached to. She’d share her body, but not her heart. So even though she felt an intense connection & the chemistry was insane with her sexy stranger, she still sneaks out in the morning.

Mason Bentley has the most amazing night with a woman named Bren. She totally blows his mind in the best way, & he has the most incredible sex of his life. He’s disappointed to find her gone when he wakes up, & decides to try to find her. He looks everywhere. He wants to get to know her & is going to make her his when he finally tracks her down. He hasn’t settled down yet, because he’s still looking for the one. He wants a soul mate, & after the unexplainable connection he felt with Bren, he thinks she’s the woman he’s been looking for.


-There were no words for the sex. From the moment I’d first kissed her, I’d been completely absorbed, lit with the need for more- to touch her, smell her, and breathe her in. It was more than chemistry- it was sheer animal connection, and I knew, even from that first, innocent kids, that she could feel it too. Our connection was unlike anything I’d ever felt.


Bren is worried she might be pregnant & makes an appointment with a doctor. She is mortified when she realizes her new OBGYN is her one night stand Mason. She thought she’d never see him again. Mason is thrilled to see Bren & wants to spend time with her and get to know her better. Under the circumstances he doesn’t want to be strangers. He comes on strong & is intense. He’s open & kind, and she is guarded & closed off. She has a fear of intimacy, & it’s freaking her out how close she feels to Mason. He’s overwhelming & keeps pushing for more. Soon she can’t help falling for him. Will her commitment issues ruin her chance at real love?

I really loved this whole series! Dr. Bentley was super swoony & deliciously sexy. He knew what he wanted & went after it. He loved with his whole heart & fell hard and fast. Really enjoyed this one! It was full of romance, humor & love.


-It was like someone designed this man just for me.

After everything we’d done together last night? Lord only knew the kindest thing would be to let him sleep. Surely by the time noon came, I’d have forgotten all about him anyway. Besides, it wasn’t like I’d ever see him again. Nope. It was the kind of night that should be savored and then placed firmly in the past.



The fourth installment of the ROOMMATES series centers around a couple who meet at a bar and end up having an unbelievably hot one night stand. What was supposed to be an uncomplicated night of fun, ends up being more than what the couple bargained for.

Bren Matthews is a zoologist who has committed all of her time to her career. She neither has the time nor the desire to be in a relationship. Her outlook on love was tarnished the moment her father passed away, and her mother became a shell of the person she used to be. It’s like her mother lost her will to carry on once she lost the love of her life. Bren knew from that moment on that she never wanted a man to have that kind of an impact on her life. Having gone without sex for what seems like a decade, Bren starts to have an itch that needs to be scratched so she goes out on her own to find an able and willing man to give her some sexual satisfaction. She never expected to be approached by the most gorgeous man she’s ever laid eyes on. They end up going back to his place and have the absolute best sex of their lives, but the next morning she sneaks off without leaving her number since it was never her intention to pursue anything more with Mason. Two weeks later she is still thinking about that night, but then a possibility that she could be pregnant turns her world upside down. Her friend makes an appointment for Bren to see a gynecologist to take a pregnancy test. She gets the shock of her life when the doctor who shows up in the exam room is none other than the man who could possibly be the baby daddy.



Mason Bentley is every single woman’s dream. He’s gorgeous, a successful doctor and has the biggest heart. Mason hasn’t been in many relationships because he’s looking for the real deal and he refuses to settle. Having his parents, who have had the most loving of relationships as role models, Mason knows that it is possible to find his true soul mate. He has been haunted by the memories of that passionate night with Bren. He thought they had shared a real connection and was disappointed when he woke up and found that she had left without giving him anyway to reach out to her again. For two weeks, he’s been walking with his head in a fog. He is completely floored when he realizes his new patient is Bren. The fact that she’s in to take a pregnancy test is another huge shock for him but he couldn’t be happier now that Bren is back in his life.

While Bren is extremely skittish about giving the relationship a chance, Mason is certain that they’re meant to be. He is able to convince her to hold off from finding out the results of the pregnancy test for one month so that during that time they can get to know each other and Mason hopes that Bren will come to realize that they have a real chance at true love.

I really loved Mason but thought he was just too perfect and that Bren didn’t deserve him. Her reasons for pushing him away didn’t seem as valid to me. I wished that she had made more of an effort to make the relationship work. By the time she got her head out of her ass, her attempts to show Mason how she felt seemed too little too late in my opinion. If it weren’t for how incredibly swoon worthy and sweet Mason was, I think I probably would have ended up liking this one even less.
