Second Chance Love Done Right
PENTHOUSE PRINCE, Kendall Ryan's latest, is a bit different from her other books, and I am totally here for it. A slow burn second-chance romance, in a small town ( my town, believe it or not, with a little bit of artistic license, but I'll take it) with her brother's best friend...that's a lot of tropes, but it totally worked for me here.
Did Lex pull the total creep move years ago? Yep. Does he deserve a second chance? Absolutely. Because he's a changed man, with a different perspective, and is willing to do right by Corrigan this time around.
Is Corrigan right to wonder whether she's crazy for putting herself in Lex's orbit? Maybe a little bit, but there's no winning against toddlers with sassy streaks a mile wide (Grier, not Lex...😉). And, time does heal many wounds, so nothing ventured, nothing gained, I'd say.
Sure, there were moments that I wanted to shake both Corrigan and Lex, but, all in all, PENTHOUSE PRINCE was a solid book that I really enjoyed, a kinder, gentler Kendall that I am really digging. More like this, please, Kendall. Grab this prince and enjoy, romance friends. ❤️
Get ready to get your heart stolen!

Get ready to get your heart stolen! Corrigan grew up in love with her older brother’s best friend Lexington – until she found out as a teenager that he returned her feelings and they dated in secret until he went to college and broke things off abruptly. Ten years later, Lexington returns home after finding out his mother has a terminal illness, bringing his young daughter with him. At the recommendation of his best friend, he reaches out to Corrigan to nanny his daughter for the summer, and initially she is not going to do it – until she meets his daughter. As the three of them spend time together, Corrigan realizes she’s not only falling back in love with Lex, but also falling in love with his daughter, and they feel the same way. Thankfully Lex decides to act on the feelings that never went away thanks to his best friend and mother, and these two get the HEA they were always destined to have. Per usual, I couldn’t get enough of Kendall’s storylines and her characters and I can’t wait for her next book!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Oh boy, Kendall never disappoints! I loved this story. Looking forward to her Frisky Business Series!
Great Story with Great Characters
This is a single-dad, second chance, slow-burn romance and I am sooo here for it. Lexington left North Carolina for college and never looked back. Leaving behind his mom, his best friend and his first love behind. Fast forward to present day and he is a successful real estate mogul in New York City raising his two-year-old daughter, Grier. After about his mom’s declining health, he decides to leave The Big Apple and go back home.
Corrigan is the girl he left behind. She is his best friend’s younger sister. Lexington left her heart broken and wondering why he did not come back when he said he would. Now Lex is back, and he wants a favor. That favor to be the nanny to his adorable daughter. Can she do that and not give into her feelings for him?
This book was such a great read! What made this book for me were the characters. These characters jumped off the page. I really had instalove with all of them. From the push and pull between Lex and Corrigan to Grier and her well just being a two year old. I even fell in love with her stuffed animal bat, FlapFlap. I could not get enough.
If you want a story what will tickle your funny bone and warm your heart that is filled with great characters, then give this book a go.

Good second chance romance. Plenty of steam. Lex’s daughter was fun. Lex was a typical heartbreaker. Corrigan was an interesting heroine. Enjoyable read, If a bit formulaic.
Charming! Flawless from start to finish. This was a seriously addicting and entertaining read. It was an emotional, angst filled, fun sweet and steamy ride. I just couldn’t put it down.
Wow! The dynamics of these two! Lex and Corrigan were both strong, well-developed characters that I loved. But due to their past, there was some tension and animosity between them, but also this crazy attraction and chemistry as well. As Corrigan tries to safeguard her heart from Lex, Grier pulls her in hook, line, and sinker. This was everything I love in a story. These two took my heart on a swoon worthy ride, with a storyline that was just so charming, steamy and wonderful.
Penthouse Prince is engaging, steamy, emotional and perfectly romantic and it delivers a sublime happy-ever-after with all the feels. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself staying up late with this one.
What a prince!

Great 2nd chance single dad romance!
Single dad romance? Yes, PLEASE!!!
When you up and leave your high school sweetheart, hearts get broken and things are never the same. Now that Lexington is back in Corrigan’s life with his little girl in tow after all these years, feelings still haven’t changed.
Penthouse Prince was a heartfelt, swoony romance with the most precious little girl thrown into the mix. I loved watching Lexington and Corrigan come back together and the addition of Grier making them a family.
This was a fantastic second chance romance story. Lexington “Lex” and Corrigan were secret high school sweethearts, Corrigan was the younger sister of Lex’s best friend. Then Lex just left for college and never came back and never explained to Corrigan that he was leaving and never coming back and now 10 years later he is back....with a 2 year old daughter named Grier. Grier is the cutest thing and Lex’s whole world revolves around his daughter and his work. Until he comes back to his hometown and realizes he never got over Corrigan. Lex ends up hiring Corrigan to be his daughter’s nanny and they are able to rekindle their friendship even though the relationship feelings are still there or at least Lex is hoping that Corrigan still wants to be with him.
This is a slow burn romance and it was exactly what this couple needed. They were great together and when you added Grier to the mix they were the perfect little family.
