About Object of My Desire:
A romance author, a cover model, a book signing…a crush.
Ordinary women like me know we shouldn’t fall for beautiful men like Travis Zehler, one of the hottest cover models in romance fiction. But sometimes we can’t help ourselves.
When I meet him at a book signing, my attraction to him is instant. I’m infatuated, and I can’t stop thinking about him.
Even though I have doubts he’d ever be interested, I invite Travis to attend a book signing with me. And he says yes.
My fantasy comes true when he takes me to his bed, and the more time we spend together, the more I see that Travis isn’t some object to be desired.
He’s a man with a past. A man who’s been burned. A man who’s learned to keep his guard up.
I want to show him he can trust again, but when our confidence in each other is shaken, I began to wonder if happily ever afters are only for my romance novels.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Object Of My Desire is the first book I’ve read by RL Kenderson, and it was a delight. I am a voracious romance reader, so I loved that this book is set behind-the-scenes at writers conventions.
Sydney is romance author who meets Travis at a convention. He’s a model and personal trainer who happens to be working the convention that weekend as her friend’s assistant. There is an immediate connection between Sydney and Travis, and even though they live in the same city, they part ways after sharing a searing kiss. When the next convention rolls around, Sydney asks Travis (who is now on the cover of her new release) to make a model appearance with her… and their relationship goes from just friends to something so much more.
Both characters have some personal baggage that they bring to the relationship: She feels rather insecure with her physical appearance in comparison to some of Travis’ exes, and he was badly burned in a past relationship where his partner was petty, jealous, self-involved and ultimately spied on him. Even after they start dating, there are awkward and sweet moments where Sydney isn’t quite sure what their relationship status is. And Travis, on the flip side, can’t help but let his previous relationship color some of Sydney’s actions, like when she accompanies him to a photo shoot.
When a misunderstanding ultimately leads to both of their insecurities coming between them, it’s a raw and real moment fraught with tension and a painful argument for both of them. The best part about the fight? It happens immediately after they exchange “I Love Yous” for the first time. And the Grand Gesture that they each make to win the other back is straight out of a romance novel. (Heh, heh, heh.)
My only complaint was the awkward transition between the POVs of Travis and Sydney. Hers is done in first person, while his is done in third. I prefer books where I get the POV of both the hero and heroine, but alternating between first and third was a clunky transition in my opinion.
Overall, Object Of My Desire was a wonderful, light-hearted romance! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
About R.L. Kenderson:
R.L. Kenderson is two best friends writing under one name.
Renae has always loved reading, and in third grade, she wrote her first poem where she learned she might have a knack for this writing thing. Lara remembers sneaking her grandmother’s Harlequin novels when she was probably too young to be reading them, and since then, she knew she wanted to write her own.
When they met in college, they bonded over their love of reading and the TV show Charmed. What really spiced up their friendship was when Lara introduced Renae to romance novels. When they discovered their first vampire romance, they knew there would always be a special place in their hearts for paranormal romance. After being unable to find certain storylines and characteristics they wanted to read about in the hundreds of books they consumed, they decided to write their own.
One lives in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and the other in the Kansas City area where they’re a sonographer/stay-at-home mom/wife and pharmacist/mother by day, and together they’re a sexy author by night. They communicate through phone, email, and whole lot of messaging.
