I saw her first.
Blonde. Gorgeous. Feisty.
I was smitten.
But it didn’t matter because she chose him and he was my best friend and roommate. I’d never be able to compete with that, so I pushed her away instead. It was easy when she lived hours away, and I didn’t have to see her every day, but then she moved in with us.
Now, I’m screwed.
To her singing in the shower every morning, dancing in the kitchen while she makes coffee, and doing yoga in our living room, I can’t stop thinking about her in all the wrong ways. She’s not mine and never will be, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to push her against a wall and claim her mouth.
She’s constantly on me for making messes, bringing chicks home every weekend, and being a smartass when their PDA gets on my nerves. Considering neither of them know how I feel, it’s not fair for the way I act toward them. I should move out so I can get over her for good; however, the selfish part of me can’t let go.
And then the unthinkable happens…
When my best friend dies in a motorcycle accident, the two of us are left to grieve our loss together. Instead of pushing her away, I pull her closer.
Just as we come to terms with our new reality, she finds out she’s pregnant with his baby.
And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my life.
**BABY MINE is an angsty, emotional, slow-burn romance wrapped up in a heartbreakingly delicious love story. It’s book 1 in the Hunter & Lennon duet of the Roommate Duet Series and must be read first.**
I had so many mixed emotions when I read the synopsis for this duet and I was so nervous because it seemed like a love triangle and I tend to shy away from those.
Hunter meets Lennon and feels a connection right away, except he finds that his best friend, Brandon beats him to the punch. What’s a best friend to do other than step aside and let the two be happy, all the while longing to be the one to make her smile and laugh right? But when the best friend dies leaving behind a a tone of grief and feelings unsaid, what now? Hunters swoops in with the intentions of helping his grief and Lennon’s so they can lean on each other, but when they both find out a life changing event, the vows to be more than just a shoulder to lean on.
The banter between these two is filled with emotions and it’s breaks my heart for Hunter because you can really feel the restraint in him and the hurt that is left behind along with the guilt he feels about his feelings about his best friends girlfriend.
Kennedy Fox is so good at giving us real situations and sometimes they are not the textbook ones you want to see but it is real. In life we want everything cookie cutter and packaged in a bow, and this is not that books. It’s raw and emotional and honest. This book will tear you apart and leave your emotions all over the place. Great first book for Hunter and Lennon! Original, real, angst and surprises is what you will find with this book. I can’t wait to see what happens with these two because the tension keeps you guessing and classic KF, there is a book two coming that I know that they will soothe that slow burn they built in Baby mine, but they will make us suffer a little longer until, hopefully an HEA.
