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

[I received a digital arc for an honest review]
I am excited to say I feel like Kennedy Fox has gone back to their Checkmate series roots with their newest release. Baby Mine had all the emotions, angst and the ‘oh sh*t‘ cliffhanger that I loved about the original series that made me fall in love with Kennedy Fox.
Here’s the part of my review where I give my own little synopsis of the story, I highlight the main points without giving anything away. I am not going to do that with this story because if I give you anymore I would end up spoiling something. In my opinion I think the synopsis provided gives away far more than it should have. Certain parts, like the best friend dying in a motorcycle accident should not have been in the synopsis. That whole event would have been way more tragic than it already was if it had come as a shock to the readers.
Lennon was my favorite character of the story, which surprised me after my reaction to the books prologue. Yet, I understood her and her reasons for her actions. She was cheerful, sarcastic and just a sweetheart. I really loved her relationship with Brandon and think they were adorable together. Next we have Hunter… Hunter, Hunter Hunter . I’m not going to lie and say that I loved him from the start. I honestly find him immature and whiny but I had to respect that he didn’t let his feelings destroy his friendship with Brandon. He grew on me as the book progressed with him unwavering support and care for Lennon.
Overall, I think Baby Mine, the first book in Kennedy Fox’s Roommate duet series was a success. The ending left me speechless and I honestly don’t know how the characters are going to deal with everything in the next book.
“I’ll do anything to comfort her and to help her heal, even if it means I’m destroyed in the process.“
“If being her best friend is all I can ever be. I’d still die a happy man by just getting to be in Lennon’s life at all.“
