The worst day of my life happened when Brandon died. We had our entire future mapped out. Careers, marriage, kids—in that order. Then the universe threw a curveball and ended it all.
As I come to terms with everything, I learn I’m carrying his baby. Now I’m living with his roommate, the guy who’s made my life a living hell the past two years. Hunter’s now the one to hold me up when all I want to do is fall.
Knowing my religious parents will never accept the pregnancy out of wedlock, Hunter offers to be my fake husband. While I think he’s gone crazy, it’s the only plan that’ll keep them in my life. So I do whatever it takes to make our relationship believable—kissing, touching, even letting him hold me when we sleep. The lines are so blurred neither of us want to admit we’re no longer pretending.
The guilt of what we’re doing eats me alive as I struggle to deal with my emotions. I push him away, but he pulls me closer, showing me how he’s always felt.
Just as I begin to follow my heart, I learn Hunter’s been keeping secrets.And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my life…
**This is book 2 in the Hunter & Lennon duet and must be read after Baby Mine. Recommended for ages 18+**

My Rating: 4 stars
Baby Yours is book #2 in the Hunter & Lennon Roomate Duet Series by Kennedy Fox. Click here for more info or to read my review of book #1 — Baby Mine. The duet is complete and now available!
As a whole, I really loved this duet! There is a lot of great push & pull between Hunter and Lennon, and the story is both heartbreaking and hopeful.
Baby Yours picks up where Baby Mine leaves off. I couldn’t imagine reading this book without having read the first, so be sure to read them in order! In this book, we’ve got a fake relationship, dealing with the unexpected pregnancy, the touch of forbidden romance that still lingers, and a slow burn. I mean, we really get it all! The plot devices lead to plenty of drama and angst, but also sweet, tender moments that I know Hunter has been craving for too long.
I wish I could say that I loved Lennon, but I just didn’t enjoy her character as much as I did in book #1. Looking back on the first book, I’m not even sure I can say I loved her then. I think I just felt a lot of heart ache for her. Both she and Hunter are flawed characters, and a lot of that has to do with their circumstances, but I still found him more likable than her.
In the end, though, I was glad to see Hunter and Lennon’s HEA, especially after all they had been through. I also liked the set-up in the epilogue for the next duet in this series — Mason and Sophie’s story!
Overall, I’d recommend this duet to all your angst-loving romance readers!
