    ***5 ‘Patron Saint’ Stars*** This one was a such a fun read and one that I was totally invested in that I *cough* “multitasked” *cough* and finished it in a couple of hours. It had just the right amount of feels which include the sniffly/teary kind as well as the “Ouch!” kind and really just hit all the right buttons for me from start to finish.It was so easy to fall in love with Keaton and Slate. Keaton is focused, extremely so, and ...

    Yet another 5 Star read from the very talented Kendall Ryan and in Love Machine we get to know Keaton and Slade who happen to be best friends. Keaton spent a disastrous night at her friends bachelorette party and has now convinced herself she needs help between the sheets and she can’t think of anyone better that her wingman Slade for the job. Slade is happy to point her in the right direction because after all Keaton is a woman who is easy on ...

    Review by Lisa KaneWhat if you just wanted to be better at sex? What would you do, who would you do? Who would you ask for help? Keaton Henly, a software saleswoman is smart and beautiful and feels so out of place when it comes to men. She just doesn't have "it" like her friends. She wants to be better. But what's a gal to do?I met Slate during my freshman year of college through mutual friends, and now it seems like we've known each other foreve...

    5 Stars!Kendall Ryan gets better and better with each new book, setting the bar so high that I've come to expect a few things... a fast paced read with irresistible characters and an engaging plot that doesn't let you go, start to finish. Love Machine is her newest and it did not disappoint at all.She needs a teacher and he very much wants to be that one, even if it takes him a moment to figure that out. And when he does, it is going to change ev...

    Slate and Keaton have been best friends for 10 years and Keaton has a problem and needs Slate's help to fix it. It's the perfect friends to lovers story. Slate is a carefree man-whore and Keaton is a workaholic, but she's not uptight. If I say anymore I'm scared I'm gonna give away the story so I'm gonna end this by saying you should definitely one-click this.

    When it comes to computers Keaton knows her stuff, she can talk computer shop with the best of them and confidently show she has serious game... but when it comes to her prowess in the bedroom that's another story. After taking part in a friendly little game at a bachelorette party, and failing miserably, Keaton knows her sex skills are seriously lacking, she needs some help, and fast. So she decides some lessons are in order, and her friend Slat...

    SERIOUSLY?! How does she do it? Every single Kendall Ryan book that gets released makes me say "this ones definitely my favorite now" and then a month or two later the next one releases and here I am again saying "This one is the best one yet!" Every single book she writes easily becomes my favorite. Keaton & Slate - first of all Slate? That just sounds hot! 🔥 add in his dirty mouth, I'm SOLD!!Their friendship was so passionate I knew from the...

    Kendal Ryan has done it again, Her books just keep getting better and better. This one is by far the best she has written. It is absolutely incredible. Slate is amazing. Typical playboy and the best friend of Keaton. This is not your typical best friends to lovers story. Of course they agree to just him teaching her the finer points of a sexual relationship and feelings are not supposed to develop. But how can they not. What Slate does for her es...
  • Suzanne
    Oh this was one delightful read from Kendall Ryan! It was fun and witty with some insane moments that had you bursting out in laughter. Keaton is one unique character who needs help in the naughty department. Then she figures Slate is the man to do it. The man who has been her best friend for years. I love how these two play off of each other. You can tell that they feel something off the bat even though they deny it. I really enjoyed how things ...
  • Christina Reed
    I really enjoyed this book. Slate and Keaton's story had me laughing out loud and rooting for them. Their friendship was one that had been around for years and this was a story that didn't have one of them secretly pinning for the other, which I liked. Even without one person pinning for the other, their chemistry was explosive when they did finally cross past the friendship line. Their friends were interesting when we got to see them, but at one...

    There is a reason that Kendall Ryan is a best selling author! We all have our moments of insecurities and worry, and she portrays these characters in a way that is just so relatable. I absolutely loved Love Machine. Slate and Keaton were such fun characters to watch go from best friends to completely in love in every sense of the word. It was like watching a fire start, a few sparks at first, a few flames, then it catches and it's absolutely dazz...

    Keaton and Slate have been best friends since college. When Keaton blurts out she needs sex lessons Slate decides he is the man for the job. Super sweet, swoony friends to lovers romance. Slate is the perfect blend of alpha male and sweetheart. Keaton is strong with a center of vulnerability. Fun interactions and steamy scenes. Perfect blend of steam and sweet.

    Okay, I needed a romcom desperately, and this is it. The bachelorette party led to Keaton breaking down and needing Slate. We are not 1 hour into Slate being her wingman and I’m dying laughing. This turned into a sweet, funny, and angsty book. It was a friends to friends with benefits to LOVE! Slate and Keaton were perfect for one another. ❤ Okay, I needed a romcom desperately, and this is it. The bachelorette party led to Keaton breaking d...

    Our girl Keaton loves to overshare, "that’s why I suck. I suck at sucking. And I don’t know how to get better." Sometimes what Slate asks his woman to do comes back and bites him in the butt, “that’s okay,” I murmur into his ear. “You can munch on my muffin anytime.” Slate stops dead in his tracks, his breath caught in his throat. “What?” I laugh. “Too much for you?” Slate is putty in his woman's hands, "...she takes my hand...

    Best friends turn lovers usually isn't my thing, but Ms. Ryan does what she does well and I found myself enjoying a story I usually wouldn't read. I thought the plot in this book was intriguing and couldn't wait to dive in to something different then my usual read. I loved the humor and the dance between both Slate and Keaton. It was fun and you couldn't help yourself from hoping that Slate would be able to pull it all off. Slate and Keaton where...
  • Katie Koziczkowski
    Love Machine was a funny and cute read! I really enjoyed the concept and found it quite entertaining. Keaton and Slate are great characters. They were easy to like and connect with. I loved all of their interactions. They make an adorable couple for sure. Them being friends first made their new connection even stronger. They just fit with one another and everyone knows it. I wish there would have been a little more background information given ab...

    Who does friends to lovers at its best, Kendall Ryan that's who. We have Slate and Keaton who by far are more than besties. Slate has been there through terrible dates, betrayal and even heartache in Keaton's life so it is no wonder how easily Slate can love her. The thing is that Keaton has also been there with Slate and knows what kind of man he is. Together these two complete each other in every way as friends but when it comes to Kendall Ryan...

    Fantastic....Best way to describe this story!!! Keaton and Slate have been best friends for the past 10 years. She considers herself the nerdy girl and him a hunk. Keaton is a workaholic, she loves her job. But that's just it. Her job is basically her life. She goes to a Bachelorette party and realizes everything she is missing out on. So she comes up with a great idea that includes asking her best friend Slade to help her with...Of course caus...
