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.
But 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
Kennedy Fox, without any remorse, ripped my heart from my chest and decided to play ping-pong with it. Good Lord… The angst in this book has reached a whole new level… Baby Mine is a book that awakens all possible emotions- confusion, disappointment, shock, unimaginable pain and hope that bursts with the end of the story like a bubble. But despite the cliffhanger that makes you want to throw your e-reader through the room and howl to the heavens, there’s still a thread of hope that everything will be explained somehow and that our heroes whose hearts have been put through a meat grinder will find consolation and a happy ending.
Instant attraction and electrifying chemistry. This is how you could describe the moment when Lennon met Hunter. However, the night took a bit different turn and Lennon ended it by his friend and roommate’s side. And this way, between our heroes began an endless banter, during which Hunter tried at all costs to push Lennon away and suppress the feeling he had for her. Until the tragedy turned them to each other. When they both lost important person and the grief becomes unbearable, they can only count on each other. The constant push ends and the pull starts. But it turns out that Lennon is pregnant with her dead boyfriend and the whole world falls on her shoulders…
Despite the huge amount of angst in this book, I loved every word. Hunter and Lennon’s story is not simple. Their behavior during their banters have always made me roll my eyes, but I could feel their bond and I cheered for them. Hunter for most of the time acted like a huge asshole and was mean and rude to Lennon but it was only the facade that surrounded him to protect his own heart. When the girl needed him he was patient, caring and there was nothing in the world that he wouldn’t do for her. And Lennon… I can’t imagine the pain she endured. And at the moment when her difficult situation slowly began to clarify, life decided to throw another obstacle in her way…
This story is one big ball of emotions. From the very beginning, right up to the end, you bite your lip wondering what’s going to happen next. And Kennedy Fox in a masterful style put into the story the situations you least expect. Baby Mine is a MUST READ for every fan of angsty romances. Highly recommend!
