Review: Love Machine by Kendall Ryan

Posted on

A best-friends-to lovers standalone romance from 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?

My Review

“If she wants me to be her personal love machine,  let’s face it, I’ll jump at the chance. “

“Holy hell, his kisses are like a Class 2 narcotic–highly addictive and extremely dangerous. “

Sometimes you just want a book that’s a ton of fun and doesn’t have a ton of drama. And for me, Love Machine was just the book I was looking for.

Told from dual points of view, Love Machine follows the story of Slate and Keaton. Keaton is smart, fun and sexy. She’s married to her job and totally confident in what she does. However, the one area she is lacking her confidence in is the bedroom. As much as she doesn’t want to admit it, it’s time for her to master it and who better than to call on but her bff Slate. Slate is a walking, talking sex machine. He oozes confidence and is totally comfortable with himself. Having your best friend help you in bedroom should be a recipe for disaster, but these two have a friendship that can withstand anything. Lessons will be taught and lines will be blurred. So sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. Slate and Keaton’s story is about to take you on one satisfying and exciting ride….

Love Machine was such a fun read. I mean I just loved it. Keaton and Slate were impossible to not fall in love with. Their friendship was so solid and completely special. You could just feel the sparks jumping off the pages. I loved watching these two interact with one another and the ease between them. Their chemistry was intense and you could tell just how deep their feelings ran, even if they didn’t want to admit it. The road to happily ever after was a little bumpy for these two, but I’m happy to report that the angst and drama is pretty light in this story.

Love Machine was just the book I was looking for. It was a quick and easy read for me. Love Machine was well written and just a ton of fun. It gave me everything I could ask for in a friends to lovers romance. From great banter to a fun story-line to moments that made you laugh like crazy and left you with a big smile on your face. To moments that steamed up the pages and had you swooning all over the place. Love Machine was a total hit for me and is another great summer read.
