THE C AGREEMENT by R.L. Kenderson
RELEASES: October 26th
I was the girl next door…with a few extra pounds. My job was demanding and kept me on my toes, but when I was deep in a case, it left me little time for relationships. And because of that, I had some complaints in the bedroom.
What I wanted was for someone to teach me to be a better lover. I needed someone I trusted with my body without the fear of falling in love and someone who wasn’t looking for anything more than sex. And I needed a man who knew how to use his body.
That was where Cade Nichols came in. He was my older brother’s best friend and anti-commitment. And my brother just challenged him to sleep with only one woman for two months. So, I offered to help Cade win that bet. As long as he helped me learn my way around a cock.
What I didn’t bet on was life not going as planned.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
The C Agreement is the first book I’ve read by this writing duo, and I enjoyed it — even though I felt like the resolution to Rayne and Cade’s dating-bet relationship was rushed.
A bitter breakup has wounded her pride and Rayne is feeling down on herself. Her brother, Beau, and his best friend, Cade, make a bet that playboy Cade can’t stay with one woman for a whole month. If he does, then Beau will open up the restaurant with Cade that they’ve always dreamed about. Since Rayne wants to spice up her repertoire in the bedroom, she suggests that Cade spend the month with her.
I loved Rayne’s confidence. She was a smart, strong, and feisty heroine. Plus-sized as well, and she owned it. She talks about times in her past when she’d felt passed over and friend-zoned because of her size, but Cade makes her feel beautiful and sexy. He’s always thought so, but she was off-limits to him as his best friend’s little sister. Plus, Cade isn’t the relationship type and didn’t want to cross any lines in his friendship with Rayne. But when presented with the opportunity to have her whenever he wants her for a whole month, Cade jumps at the chance.
This book is full of spice and heat, and dirty talk. Cade is rather possessive and it surprises Rayne when she discovers that she likes that side of him. Of course, they both catch feelings before the month is up. And this is where I had an issue with the storyline: Rayne recognizes that she’s fallen in love with Cade, while he’s confused by his feelings of wanting to be around her whenever he can. I feel like I missed a whole section where Cade went from that to realizing that he loved her. I like the show, not the tell, and it just felt like I was robbed of seeing Cade realize he’d fallen in love despite his best efforts.
Still, I enjoyed this book very much. It’s a relatively quick read, and an enjoyable low-angst romance.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
Meet 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 both work in the medical field during the day and they’re a sexy author by night. They communicate through phone, email, and whole lot of messaging.
