From New York Times Bestseller Kendall Ryan comes a sexy new stand-alone novel in her Roommates series.
The smoking-hot one-night stand I was never supposed to see again?
Yeah, well, I might be pregnant, and he’s my OB-GYN.
Get ready to fall head over heels madly in love with the hottest OBGYN doctor you have ever met! This full-length standalone contains the most hilariously awkward lady-doctor visit, lots of playful banter and some good ol’ fashioned baby-makin’!
The idea of soul mates is an interesting one; it’s a belief that some people adamantly subscribe to, but it’s also one that many others don’t buy into simply because of the sheer number of people one meets during his/her lifetime.
Regardless of which side readers of Kendall Ryan’s newest release, The Soul Mate, are on, the undeniable attraction and the pull the hero and heroine feel towards each other in the story speak to an inexplicable connection between them – one that at least one of the main characters believes is their destiny while the other one is too afraid to label any part of what’s being felt because past experience dictates that there’s no such thing as a single person who’s meant to be theirs and theirs alone.
Dr. Mason Bentley whole heartedly believes that there is one woman out there for him…his one true love, and as soon as he finds her, he knows that, together, they can tackle any obstacle and overcome anything that threatens what they have. Due to his beliefs, he lives his life navigating the world of dating always conscience of meeting and claiming his soul mate.
Bren Matthews might believe in everyone having one special someone, but her fears and her upbringing keep her emotionally unavailable and force her to protect her heart at all costs, running from the pain that could possibly occur by letting down her walls and giving someone else the power to destroy her.
Mason and Bren couldn’t be more opposite in their beliefs about love and commitment, so the fact that they can’t stop thinking about their one night together and what it could ultimately mean makes the story line intriguing and a bit perplexing. And then when Kendall Ryan puts Mason and Bren in a situation where they could possibly be linked to one another for the rest of their lives, the whole dynamics of what they were supposed to mean to each other is drastically altered, leading to decisions and actions that have Mason setting a clear path to the one thing he’s always wanted while pushing Bren too hard and too fast, forcing her to shut down and build up her walls as high as they can go so she doesn’t have to face Mason’s feelings or deal with her own.
I love that Mason’s the one who believes in the idea of love and romance, and the way that he goes about winning Bren over, declaring that she’s the one almost instantly will definitely have readers swooning. Some readers might be a bit frustrated with some of Bren’s actions, but Ryan does a good job of clearly explaining why Bren is the way she is and what it costs her to even contemplate giving Mason and his desire to be with her a chance.
The Soul Mate is a sweet and steamy read that gives readers hope that love at first sight and finding one’s soul mate can still occur even in contemporary society – one filled with heartache, divorce, and selfishness. Mason is a wonderful hero who never gives up on Bren because he 100% believes that they’re meant to be together, and while Bren is a harder sell when it comes to defining what she feels for Mason, her struggle means there’s still a way for Mason to break through the wall that surrounds Bren and dismantle it with every kind gesture, every sweet word, and every attempt to make them more than a one night stand.
