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
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Hunter has been in love with Lennon since the night he met her… except that even though he met her first, she ultimately chose his best friend, Brandon. Now, the three of them are roommates, and Hunter is trapped in a hell of his own making. The only way for him to survive is to pretend to hate Lennon. And he does such a fantastic job of that, that she hates him right back.
But when their lives are forever changed by one knock on the door, Hunter and Lennon lean on each other in a way that they can’t lean on anyone else. And when Lennon discovers after Brandon’s death that she’s pregnant, Hunter steps up to protect her, take care of her and the baby, even if it means a lifetime of heartbreak for himself.
I really wanted to dislike Brandon. I wanted a clear path to not feel like Hunter was doing something wrong in having feelings for Lennon. But Kennedy Fox wrote these characters magnificently, and even knowing Brandon’s fate ahead of time, I was absolutely crushed by his death, along with Hunter and Lennon. You know when you get that gut-punch for a character? I got that so early on in this story when it came to Hunter. His torment was palpable, and every time he felt that knife twist further into his heart, I bled right along with him.
This book is the first part of a duet, and it ends on a cliffhanger. And what a whopper it is! The romance between Hunter and Lennon is barely even started yet, but there’s a slow burn that’s been building as Lennon realizes she’s starting to see him in a different light. But that twist at the end has the potential to turn everything upside down, and I can’t wait to see where this story goes in the second part!
