I saw her first.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.
And 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 life.
**BABY MINE is an angsty, emotional, slow-burn romance wrapped up in a heartbreakingly delicious love story. It's book 1 in the Hunter & Lennon duet of the Roommate Duet Series and must be read first.**

My Rating: 4 stars
Baby Mine, book one in the Hunter & Lennon Roomate Duet, is an emotional ride by writing duo, Kennedy Fox.
I love Kennedy Fox! These ladies perpetually give me all the feels, loads of angst & swoons, and flawed characters I can’t get enough of. And I just knew I was going to enjoy this book after reading their free novella that introduces the Roomate Duet Series, Forever Mine.
The story is amazing! Baby Mine has great wit, banter, ANGST, heartache, and sexy times. I was a little wary when I first read the synopsis. I guess I was a bit worried how believable it (mostly Hunter and Lennon’s relationship after Brandon) would come across. Kennedy Fox did their thing, though, and not only made it seem plausible but did it with conviction — I was feeling everything!
And, OF COURSE, they dropped had a nice, big CLIFF HANGER at the end (it’s okay, though, because readers don’t have to wait long before the next book)!
As for the characters, my heart ached for every one of them! I can’t even imagine what it would be like to be in Hunter’s shoes; to sit back and watch your best friend with the girl you want. He acted like a bonehead more than once, but can you blame him?! Lennon is blind to Hunter’s feelings, probably because he does such a good job of pushing her away. Then add the loss of Hunter’s best friend/Lennon’s boyfriend/their roommate, Brandon! Brandon is very likeable, too, so my heart broke at his death. These are exactly the flawed but fabulous characters I have grown to love from KF.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book if you love angsty, sexy, heart-wrenching stories! I would like to suggest reading Forever Mine beforehand because it sets up the series nicely, though it’s not necessary to begin this duet. I can’t wait to see what’s coming Hunter and Lennon’s way in book two!
