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.
You can’t fake that kind of chemistry, as instant as it was, and I swear she felt it too, though I’ve tried to convince myself it was one-sided.
I don’t even know where to begin with this review. This story was unexpected in every way possible. It truly punches you in the gut and messes with all your emotions in the best way possible.
Hunter and Lennon push each other’s buttons, more so Hunter pushes all of Lennon’s buttons because it is the only way he can survive having her as his roommate. When tragedy struck Hunter and Lennon’s lives they grow closer, they lean on each other and find their new normal together. One small event changes their dynamic completely. Their story is full of ups and downs, twist and turns and one giant bomb that will make you want to through your kindle across the room.
Baby Mine is full of angst and is one slow burn of a romance. If you’ve read the blurb you know something is coming but when it actually happens it hits you hard. Make sure you have some tissues close by. Once I started reading this I couldn’t put it down, I was completely wrapped up in Hunter and Lennon’s world. Lennon’s sisters and Hunter’s two friend were amazing secondary characters and I can’t wait for more of them in the future. This is book one in the duet and I can’t wait to see what sort of drama unfolds in the second book.
