Sunny Shelly’s Review: Truly Mine, by Kennedy Fox

This is a friends-to-lovers roommate romance filled with drama, suspense, and, of course, plenty of angsty slow burn goodness you’ve come to expect in a Kennedy Fox book!

Truly Mine, Book 1

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, and 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. 
And ends when I’m arrested for his murder.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Part ONE of a duet! Ends on a cliffhanger!

I love these duets from Kennedy Fox!! Truly Mine picks up at the wedding reception where Hunter and Lennon’s story, Baby Ours, left off: Mason has been arrested for the murder of Sophie’s boyfriend, Weston.

The story is then told through flashbacks three years ago, when Mason and Sophie met for the first time before being introduced by her sister and then-boyfriend, Brandon. They had a hot fling in a bar bathroom, but after Mason realized who Sophie is, he knew it couldn’t go any further. The boy has baggage, and he didn’t want to bring her into his mess. They try to be friends, but Mason feels insanely protective of Sophie and ends up kind of treating her like crap over the next few years. This story runs concurrent with the Lennox/Brandon/Hunter triangle, so we see a lot of the same events happen through Sophie’s POV.

When Sophie starts dating Weston, it’s Mason who realizes what a jerk the guy is and that he’s abusing Sophie. He truly is her knight in shining armor as he saves her from a certain death. They eventually admit their feelings to one another and Mason confesses to her about the demons he battles concerning his ex-girlfriend, and they agree to give a relationship a real chance. But then this story ends on a helluva cliffhanger!

It’s a slow burn for Mason and Sophie, and this story is fully of angsty goodness. September 10 can’t come soon enough! I need the conclusion!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Truly Yours, Book 2

Releasing: September 10th

I knew within moments of meeting Mason Holt that he would change my life forever.

I just didn’t realize how much.

As my world spirals out of control, he continues to stay by my side, protecting and taking care of me. 

Being just friends is all he’s been able to offer, that is until both of our lives are threatened. Now that our relationship is blossoming into something more, I can’t be what he needs even if I wished I could.

Bad timing strikes again.

When I think we can finally be together, someone threatens to tear us apart. I’m not the same girl Mason met three years ago, but I’m determined to fight for what I’ve always wanted…him.
