Last month I read Baby Mine and even though I had some notes, I really enjoyed the book. True to their style, Kennedy Fox left us with a major cliffhanger. So I was very happy when Baby Yours appeared on my Kindle. I needed to know how their story continued. Yesterday was the release of this book and today I’m here to tell you what I thought. A big thanks to the authors and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for providing an ARC to read and review!
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
**This is book 2 in the Hunter & Lennon
duet and must be read after Baby Mine. Recommended for ages 18+**
To start off my review, definitely make sure to read Baby Mine before picking up this book. You will give yourself major spoilers and miss the emotional journey that the first book gives you. That will make you appreciate and enjoy Baby Yours so much more!
Baby Mine leaves us at a major cliffhanger and while I love the authors for doing that, it can also drive me up the wall, haha. In all honesty, even though this book has a lot of angst and drama, I enjoyed this one more than the first one (don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t bad). I connected with these characters a bit more. I think this is mostly caused by the set up Baby Mine had to work towards.
I don’t want to give too much away, because with all the emotions in this story, you really need to experience it all on your own. Baby Yours picks at the same moment Baby Mine left us at. The emotions smack you in the face and make you hope for the best. When you add faking a relationship, this story gets intense.
I loved Hunter & Lennon together. Even the pretending was filled with a lot of chemistry and tension. I think everybody was already in the loop there was more than pretending before they did. They’re both still obviously dealing with the loss of their boyfriend/best friend and it’s still a lot to handle. A lot of guilt for feelings they don’t think should be there.
Baby Yours is filled with tension and angst, but it’s not too much. I really appreciated their journey and both of them acknowledging that their situation was unique. I have read many books where the main characters jump in a new relationship without looking back after a big loss and I loved that this dealt with the emotions more.
Hunter shows he can be a sweet and caring guy and that there’s a lot more going around in his head. Lennon is such a strong woman. I mean, losing the love of your life and being pregnant shortly after is a lot to deal with. The strength they also find in each other is amazing. I think in the end this book could’ve done without the added drama of the cliffhanger. They were already in such a hard place, I honestly think their journey would’ve been enough.
If you’re looking for a slowburn romance filled with angst, romance, humor, swoon moments and amazing characters, please pick up this duet! It’s so worth it!!
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.
But 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…
