College parties, beer, and one-night stands—that was my life.
Now, I hunt down criminals, ethically or not, but if no one’s asking, then I’m not telling. Drinking and women are still included, though I can’t seem to forget the girl who almost gave me her virginity. She would’ve until I realized she was too young, and I wasn’t looking to get thrown into jail.
In a twist of fate, we’re reunited, except she’s no longer underage but still equally off-limits. After ignoring her relentless advances, she starts to wear me down. I only have so much willpower when she’s around, running her smart mouth and showing off her impeccable dance moves.
Just when my restraint starts to crumble, my poor choices finally catch up with me, putting us both in danger.
There’s no easy way to explain why I betrayed her, but I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe—even if it means breaking her heart.
My Rating: 4 stars
Always Mine is book #1 in the Liam & Madelyn Duet (#5 in the Roomate Duet Series) by Kennedy Fox.
This writing duo never fails to deliver on a sexy, captivating story full of angst with swoon-worthy characters! This series in particular has hit me hard in the feels — each roomate duet is an emotional ride!
Dare I say that Liam and Maddie are my favorite KF couple!?! He is stubborn and closed off; she wants him so bad and is playful in her pursuit! I absolutely love their dynamic. Their relationship is years in the making and slow to burn, but they have undeniable chemistry!
This story was a surprise in how suspenseful it is. And, of course, a big ole cliffhanger left me anxious for book #2!
Overall, I’m happy to recommend Always Mine if you’re a fan of loads of angst and looking for a page-turner. Although you can read this as a standalone, I’d like to suggest starting with the novella, Forever Mine, then reading the other two duets before starting this one. It’s not necessary by any means, but the characters’ stories evolve throughout the series, which I have loved.
*Thanks to the author and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for providing me with an advanced copy of this book. Please note that it, in no way, had an effect on my opinion or review.
Book 2 in the Liam & Madelyn duet — Always Yours — is coming February 18th! Be sure to add it to your TBR!
