Sunny Shelly’s Review: Because You’re Mine by S.A. Clayton

Release Date: February 21

Quinn can’t see a way out of this mess.

Her uncle just passed away, leaving her his struggling pub and she’s fighting to keep her head above water.

The only bright spot of her days is when Wes comes in.

Wes, the boy that she had a crush on in high school and who just moved back to town.

When Wes asks her out, she wonders if she can really handle a new relationship on top of everything else on her plate.

Wes can’t stay away.

He just got back to town and has been stopping by Quinn’s pub every night for a chance to see the feisty woman that he’s always had a crush on.

When he sees how stressed she is, all he wants to do is help, but Quinn turns him down.

When Wes goes behind her back to help, will Quinn be able to forgive him or will Wes lose the girl of his dreams?


Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Because You’re Mine was a quick hit — it took me about an hour during a car ride to read the whole thing — and a steamy friends-to-lovers story.

Quinn and Wes kind of circled each other back in high school. She runs the local bar where he hangs out, and he finally asks her out after showing up night after night. But she has a lot on her plate with trying to keep the bar afloat, and puts Wes off at first. Just as they start dating, Wes makes a business decision that has major effects on Quinn. Will she see that he had her best interest in mind because she belongs to him and him to her?

I enjoyed the flirtation between Wes and Quinn, and how he was just there as a support for so long. It kind of bothered me a bit how they went from a first kiss to fooling around so quickly, just because I liked the development of their relationship and wanted to see more first before it got that physical. But despite that, I enjoyed the way this story unfolded.

This is the first book I’ve read by SA Clayton, and I will definitely keep her on my radar.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Meet S.A. Clayton



S.A. Clayton lives in a small town outside of Toronto, Canada with her husband of five years and her scary large collection of books that seem to take over every room.
She has worked on both sides of the publishing industry, both in a bookstore and for actual publishing companies. Although she loved both for different reasons, she found that writing was her true passion and has spent the last few years breaking into the industry as best she can.
She is a lover of all things romance and began her writing journey in her late twenties. Since then, she has immersed herself in the romance genre and couldn’t be happier.
When she’s not writing or reading, she enjoys binging a great Netflix show (Stranger Things anyone?), baking (because who doesn’t love cookies!) and spending time with her family.
