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 to sit on this for a few days before I sat down to write my review. I was processing everything that I just read. Now I’m a huge fan of Kennedy Fox, they’re definitely one of my favorite author duos out there and their books are always one that I’m looking forward to. I may be in the minority, although completely childish at times, Hunter made this book for me and couldn’t connect with Lennon … at all. He is the definition of the most loyal friend that you could EVER have. And my heart absolutely broke for him.
When it comes to Hunter and Lennon, there’s a lot of what-ifs running through his mind essentially since they had such a strong connection when they first met. But fear ran rampant in Lennon’s mind and ended up with Brandon. Not going to lie, that left a bitter taste in my mouth and I just didn’t know how to deal with it. It has been two years since they all met and Brandon and Lennon are going strong and just in love as ever.
I was completely gutted that Hunter chose to stay and watch the girl the he’s pretty much in love with and his best friend be together 24/7. Talk about knife to the heart! He did everything in his power to hide what he feels about Lennon. He wants nothing more than his best friend to be happy in every aspect of his life and he would absolutely not stand in the way of that. How can you not admire someone like that? So, sooooo loyal to a fault!
With the tragic loss that happens to the both of them, it brings them closer and one of Hunter’s masks come off and slowly revealing his genuine and kind nature. He would do anything to keep Lennon happy and to just help through this process of grieving what they both lost.
Lennon hasn’t won me over and I really hope she does in the next book. She was driving me crazy with how blind she was about Hunter’s feelings. She witnessed the many facades that Hunter gave off and everyone knew what he felt for her.
Baby Mine ended with a pretty huge cliffhanger and I am absolutely not there for it! My heart can’t take it and I’m so hard that I won’t be devastated in book 2, but I know KF wouldn’t do that to us. Right?!
With that being said, Kennedy Fox have their signature writing in this one, the angst is unreal, people! I’m more than anxious for book 2 and so happy that it’s not too long of a wait.
