REVIEW : Truly Mine by Kennedy Fox

August 12, 2019

The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized. 

As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and taunting lips. Resisting her wasn’t an option, and we quickly became a desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest sin, but I was no saint. 

Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting her wasn’t a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs.

𝐹𝑟𝑖𝑒𝑛𝑑𝑠. It’s all we can ever be. 

After years of lying to myself and keeping her at a distance, I want to pull her close. Sophie’s on my mind more than ever as my instincts to protect her take over. Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away and makes it clear she doesn’t need me. 

I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her I’m the good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend and I start throwing punches.

“Confession is for sinners, sweet Sophie.”


MY REVIEW

THIS BOOK. I have NO words for how I feel. Truly Mine should come with a warning for all the angst, the slow burn and EVERY SINGLE EMOTION you will experience while reading.

Mason and Sophie’s story is truly a heat breaking, emotional story. Their entire relationship is full of heartbreaking moments. Mason’s past shattered my heart. The pain and guilt he experienced. There are no words. Sophie’s current relationship was something that really struck me on a personal level. In a way I felt connected to her, I could feel her pain, I could feel where she was coming from at times.

I love that we got some more of Hunter and Lennon’s life together, there was more Liam and Maddie (who I absolutely love) and the group as a whole. I love the sisterly love and bond between the girls and the bromance between the guys. There were a few times I laughed at the banter between Liam, Mason, and Hunter. Plus, the stuff that Maddie says sometimes. It added some lightness to an emotional story.

This review is so difficult to write. This is just one duet you will have to read. It deals with some tough topics, but it’s not overlooked or glossed over, it’s not told in a way that glamorizes it. It is told in a fashion that shows the truth, the real struggle, the pain, the emotion. Kennedy Fox do an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING job at telling Sophie’s story and her survival.

Truly Mine will wreck you completely, so be prepared for one wild ride. I can’t wait for Truly Yours and the conclusion to Mason and Sophie’s duet.
