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.

My ReviewBefore I get into this review I am going to state that I received an early copy of this book for this blog tour so I can give an honest review.
Okay, now that that is out of the way let me just say that this book was beyond amazing. I haven't been on such an immersive journey while reading a book in quite some time. The book pulled me in and I was feeling everything the characters felt and then some. I was laughing, crying, screaming, and throwing my book down in embarrassment during a certain hotel scene. This book was absolutely phenomenal.
An author and a cover model! First off how freaking unique and so totally swoon-worthy is that? When I read the synopsis for this book all I could think was "gimme gimme gimme!!" I couldn't contain my excitement for this story. Actually reading it and finding out it was better than my expectations? Pretty freaking boss!
So Sydney is a published author who's trying to promote her books at a book signing. There she meets Travis Zehler and his friend Angela. Travis is the cover model on the cover of his friends' book and so he came to help promote. Sydney feels an instant connection to Travis, but she tries to write it off. A few months later Sydney is finishing up her book and finds another photo of Travis that she wants to use for her own story. Contacting Travis to see if he'll come to another book signing event with her sets off a whole series of events that lead the two of them to become way more than casual acquaintances.
Travis loves what he does as both a model and as a fitness trainer. His last relationship left him scarred and nervous about starting another relationship. Despite his initial and immediate attraction to Syndey he tries to keep a friendly distance until a very accidental incident in a hotel room leaves him unable to deny his feelings any longer.
Okay, I'm going to stop my little recap of this story before I get into spoiler territory. I loved Sydney and Travis. I thought both of them were amazing characters. I always got excited when we would get scenes in Travis' perspective. Both characters felt so very real and their romance sexy scenes were off the charts. I enjoyed every bit of their relationship together.
Object of My Desire is a very unique and amazing story. Now, if you've been on my Goodreads page before you know I read about 300+ books on average a year for the last 3-5 years or so. For me to say a book s unique is very rare and such an amazing gift. I seriously loved this book from start to finish and it will definitely be a book I pick up time and time again.
So, if you've reached this far into my review you'll have guessed by now that I loved this book. The pacing was amazing; nothing too slow or too fast or some parts real slow and others real fast. Just nice consistent pacing. The characters were relatable, adorable, and ones I would love to read more about forever. The writing was fantastic. I have no other words for it. I was pulled in and trapped in this story from start to finish. This is an absolute MUST-READ story.

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 a whole lot of messaging.
