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.
I can’t even begin to describe how much Baby Mine tore at my soul. The first part to Hunter and Lennon’s duet was absolutely heartbreaking. I can’t even comprehend how much I loved the raw emotion. So many tears were shed while reading this one.
About Baby Mine:
Baby Mine is the first book in Hunter and Lennon’s duet which is also the first novel in the Roommate Duet series. This one is told in Hunter and Lennon’s point of views.
The moment Hunter saw Lennon on the other side of the bar, he knew she was his forever. But he was quick to realize his best friend had the same ideas. Now two years later Brandon and Lennon are going strong and Hunter lives his life pushing down the love he feels for the girl and replacing it with disgust and guilt.
But life has a way of throwing a wrench into the system. Now Hunter and Lennon must overcome their pain and find a way to lean on each other when a tragedy occurs.
This was not at all what I was expecting and I loved this novel and Kennedy Fox that much more for giving me a twist after every turn with this read. Throughout the novel I grew to love Lennon and Hunter’s back and forth banter. These two argued like brother and sister, I felt a little sorry for Brandon because at times he was often pulled in the middle of their disagreements. And when you’re in the middle of a disagreement between your best friend and your girlfriend, that rock and a hard place can be a little tricky to maneuver around and come out on top in the end.
It takes a lot to hide your true feelings and step aside to make someone else happy. I loved Hunter for this. This man clearly say the girl first, she flirted with him and gave him ‘I’m interested’ vibes, which he picked up on right away. But then hours later when he heads home alone with thoughts of the girl still in his head, he walks in his door only to find his best friend and the girl of his dreams completely and utterly in love. If that isn’t heartbreaking than I don’t know what is. My heart broke for this man throughout the whole novel.
Now on the other hand, Lennon kind of pissed me off for not having consideration for Hunter’s feelings. She felt the vibes too, she even admitted to knowing they had a connection. But then she tries to act all fragile with her hurt feelings for the way he’s treating her. Hmm. Interesting concept, for once I’m siding with the man on this one.
But then that twist happens, and all my thoughts and feelings completely get thrown out the window. I mean…. what the ever loving hell!
I loved Brandon! Picture me at three a.m. sitting on the couch in the dark with an empty box on tissues on the coffee table and crumpled up tear soaked tissues all over my lap as i’m uncontrollably sobbing while reading my kindle. That is a picture of pure heartbreak. I didn’t see this heartbreak coming…. Not for one second.
and then another twist gets thrown in the mix, and I’m completely ruined…. yet again.
and then a final twist that ends in a cliffhanger of all cliffhangers gets thrown in the mix, and now I’m sitting here with my jaw on the floor..
After all is said and done though, I am really happy with the way this novel turned out. I can’t wait to dive into Baby Yours and see where that last twist leads us!! I’m diving in now!!
