The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized.
As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and taunting lips. Resisting her wasn’t an option, and we quickly became a desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest sin, but I was no saint.
Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting her wasn’t a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs.
𝐹𝑟𝑖𝑒𝑛𝑑𝑠. It’s all we can ever be.
After years of lying to myself and keeping her at a distance, I want to pull her close. Sophie’s on my mind more than ever as my instincts to protect her take over. Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away and makes it clear she doesn’t need me.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her I’m the good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend and I start throwing punches.

My Rating: 4 stars
Truly Mine is the angsty friends-to-lovers roomate romance that fans have come to expect and love from Kennedy Fox! This story is intense and emotional; heart wrenching and beautiful!
We met Mason and Sophie in the previous duet in this series, so I was excited to see where their relationship went. After their one night stand, they keep their distance despite their chemistry, so you KNOW things are going to heat to the point of combustion at some point! But major drama unfolds that, as the blurb indicates, results in a murder for which Mason is arrested, and their situations cause a lot of good tension/push and pull that makes for a solid slow burn.
As with book one in the Hunter & Lennon Roomate Duet, we get plot twist and a massive CLIFF HANGER (MASSIVE!!!!!!!), but luckily, the release of book two is just around the corner!
Overall, I recommend this book to all you angsty contemporary romance fans. Although you can read this as a standalone, I’d like to recommend starting with the novella, Forever Mine, then reading the Hunter & Lennon duet before starting this one. It’s not necessary by any means, but it’s nice to see the characters’ stories evolve throughout the series.
*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 Mason & Sophie duet — Truly Yours — is coming September 10! Be sure to add it to your TBR!
