Sunny Shelly’s Review: Forcing You Away, by Kennedy Fox

Forcing You Away

Archer & Everleigh, #1

Forcing You Away is now available on all retailers!

As I search for a fresh start, a friend convinces me to move to his small town. Considering I don’t have a place to live, his little sister offers me her spare room.

She’s every man’s dream—witty, down to earth, and gorgeous as hell—too bad she’s off-limits. Unspoken words and stolen glances have me eager to please her in all the forbidden ways. My broken past makes it hard to open up, however, she inspires me to face my demons and be the man she deserves.

I shouldn’t fantasize about my roommate, but it’s impossible when Everleigh’s sleeping next to me—her lips whispering my name.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

I have been loving Kennedy Fox’s duets, and Archer and Everleigh’s story is a great addition to the Ex-Con series. Archer was Tyler’s cellmate in prison, and when he is released, Tyler gives him a job at his gym — and his sister Everleigh’s spare room. Their relationship is forbidden by her brother because Everleigh is a big-time flirt and a bit flighty, and Tyler wants Archer to get back on his feet with no distractions. But of course, Archer and Everleigh can only fight their attraction to one another for so long…

Everleigh has cracked me up since the beginning of this series, and I adored her rapport with Archer. Kennedy Fox did a great job of building a foundation for these characters through their friendship before anything physical happened between them. There are a few hookups along the way, but those come later in the book and it was worth waiting for the anticipation of them finally sleeping together!

There is always an element of suspense and danger in these duets, and Forcing You Away is no different. It ends on a major cliffhanger, and I have no idea who is behind the incident! Is it someone from Archer’s past? Or Everleigh’s? I really have no clue! I can’t wait to see how the second part of this duet wraps up Archer and Everleigh’s story!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
