    *****FOUR STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}The embers of attraction were always there, I’ve come to realize. All it took was one little kiss to blow on the ashes and make them roar to life.LOVE MACHINE is one seriously sexy and even sweet ”friends to lovers” romance. It is one of my most favorite tropes but I feel like lately, I haven’t gotten enough. From the moment I saw the cover, I was in hardcore lust!! Kendall Ryan has b...

    After I read the blurb to the Kindle edition (there are 2 blurbs to different editions) and the charming line with him getting more ass than a toilet seat; I immediately put it on my avoid shelf.My reading buddy though read it and criticized me for being judgmental upfront. She confirmed that the book itself was safe and sweet.I have zero problem with criticism, so I pushed my picky ass to read the story.Yes, the book was safe, so far no sex-scen...

    4 stars!Review at Of Pens and Pages.Love Machine is a great summer read that is perfect for fans of the friends-to-lovers trope!

    DNF @ 10%yeah, i had a feeling this was gonna suck. ugh- the narration was so bad & cringeworthy and the mc sounded like a 16 y/o instead of a 30+, talking about some "i feel pathetic & shitty that i cant give a good bj" girl what?? LMAO. and its that same "shes a nerdy, glasses wearing smart girl who embarrasses herself at every turn" i was getting second hand embarrassment. and the guy sounded.... like IDK, bland as hell. also the same ol' puss...

    Gah! There is something about Kendall Ryan's stories that hit the spot. They are always sexy and swoony with the emotional punch that I always need. I loved Love Machine and thought it was a fun and sexy take on the best friend/romance tutor type trope. Slate and Keaton were OMG hot and fiery! I could not get enough.I absolutely loved Slate and Keaton. They were obviously attracted to each other but I feel like the author nailed their emotional c...

    ***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 ...

    It is no secret that Kendall Ryan is my go-to author for light, sweet and fluffy romance. Some would consider her stories repetitive, but to me it is a sure thing guaranteed. I know what to expect. I know I will have something wholesome awaiting.She’s also somehow converted me to friends-to-lovers. Perhaps my least favourite trope. Ever. Because it is too cute and airy and frilly and fancy. But after reading dark, twisted romances, or stories t...

    “I belong by her side. It’s where I feel the most right.” LOVE MACHINE is a witty, entertaining, sexy, sweet, FUN romantic read! This lighthearted page-turner of a romance had me grinning ear to ear, wishing and hoping for a Slate of my very own. Keaton is one hell of a heroine and compliments our hero oh so well. I absolutely ADORED these two together! When it comes to incredible friends-to-lovers romances, Kendall Ryan is the one to look ...

    4.5 SMOOCHES!I absolutely love the friends-to-lovers trope, and Kendall Ryan knocked it out of the park with Love Machine. I’m a big fan of Ryan’s writing, especially her sexy, sweet, fun-to-read contemporary romances. She packs a lot of steam on those pages, intertwining a spicy romance into an engaging plot that readers can’t help but get caught up in. Ryan does these kinds of stories very well, and, thankfully, she’s given her reader...

    Love Machine is Kendall Ryan's new best friends to lovers romance and I was swooning all over the place over Slate. Kendall always delivers the sexiness, humor and fun. Slate and Keaton are best friends. Yes, a man and woman can be friends. They share pizza and beer on a regular basis. Brunch with friends and Keaton plays his wing-woman often. But when Keaton decides she needs help with her bedroom skills Slate is happy to just show her the way. ...

    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 ...

    I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own. I absolutely adore Kendall Ryan's books and I love friendship romances. So when I get both of those all wrapped up in one, I am on cloud nine! Kendall shows us that the greatest love stories can start from the deepest friendships and takes her readers along for the ride. Keaton and Slate had my heart fluttering over their “inside secrets” and how well they knew each ...

    I love a good friends to lovers romance, in fact, they are my favorite. Kendall Ryan just topped my list of friends to lovers with one of the BEST stories I’ve read!Keaton is looking for love in all the wrong places and thinks she needs help in the bedroom. Enter Slate, her best friend and the man for the job. Of course, there are rules the two of them put in place...but rules are meant to be broken, aren’t they?Keaton and Slate had me comple...

    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...

    3.5 Stars Love Machine was a very sweet, sexy and quick read. And my review will be just as quick and sweet. Keaton and Slate have been friends for years and neither looked at the other as more than a friend. Even when Keaton asks Slate to help her in her "sexplorations" neither bat an eye at the thought of this messing up their friendship or things becoming awkward.Keaton and Slate easily fall in love with one another without realizing it til th...

    It was good. I liked it. Sweet and funny, nothing really new (I'm not a big fan of this trope - the friendly sex ed). I had some issues with Keaton's frends, but other than that I enjoyed it. If you're a fan of friends to lovers with a lot of steam than this is a great way to spend a rainy day on the couch.

    What can I say about Love Machine???? IT WAS EVERYTHING!!! OMGEEE. Okay now that I got the screaming out the way, I seriously have to say I floved this book hard. Keaton's and Slate's relationship is the best. The best friends persona you get is perfect to the T. Once Slate decides to ask Keaton for a little "ahem" lesson under the sheets, the book takes off from there. Love Machine has become my favorite book written by Kendall Ryan. This is why...

    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.
