“Not everything has to be so serious, Saige.”
“Not everything has to be a joke, Fox.”

Opposites attract. Two people that are different in every single way and yet cannot resist the pull bringing them closer together. This is the story of Saige and Fox, two young people on the brink of adulthood, but with very different attitudes towards the unpredictable future before them.

Saige is not a people person. She does not enjoy spending time with people nor does she make any efforts to make others

I highly enjoyed this book. It was a nice stray from the norm and had some really good lessons in it about acceptance and assumptions. I read it in one sitting and just fell in love with it. It is one of those books that with writing alone is a Solid high rating, but with the extra special bits thrown in to make it a top rated in my book. Not all authors can weave a story that not only draws you in, but invests you in the characters. This is one of those books and

This book was a SOLID 4 stars. It was quite the enjoyable read. The storyline was interesting enough to keep me intrigued throughout the whole book. This is a coming of age love story. Two people who are trying to find their way in the world after high school. I think I had a smile on my face throughout the majority of the book. I loved these two characters. Fox and Saige w

i might getting overdose by epic romance side of Fox Harrington, such a gentleman. though he is a dyslexic.
here, i give you the scene where the title of this novel comes from:

“You want to say something, don’t you?

This is one time she doesn’t turn away from me. “I want to ask something, but I don’t know how.”

“What’s it about?”

“Um, you. Me.”

When Saige and Fox meet at a graduation party, they certainly don't seem like a likely couple. They're leaving high school behind, but the labels they acquired from their peers still linger. Fox was a popular guy, despite being held back in school, and Saige was the unfriendly loner, the stuck-up rich girl. But those labels rarely encompass the complex people beneath them.

When Fox first approaches Saige, she's hostile and rude to him, but Fox doesn't get upset. He's actually intrigued by her. As

Are You Mine was a deep and emotional story that really delved into the idea of opposites attracting. It was filled with love, hope, sadness and redemption. Once I started I couldn’t put it down because I was truly captivated by the characters and the journey they took with each other. There was something special about watching Fox and Saige fall in love.

Fox and Saige are two very opposite people but they end up being exactly what the other needs. Fox is a guy with a million friends who everyone

There are books created just because then there are book written because a story NEEDS to be told, Are You mine? Is one of them.
I love this book the story is one that touched me true and reached deep.
Saige (love the name) just graduated high school and is in no hurry to make any decisions about her future. Life has been cruel to her she became an orphan at the age of 11 after losing her father and her mother at age 5. Pain hurt and anger is all she knows so she shuts every one out to protect he

Writing a review on a book you neither loved or hated can be quite difficult. There are no strong emotions to express either way. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy this story, yet I was left slightly underwhelmed. The plot was interesting, the characters had potential, but sadly it didn't quite get there.

Saige Armstrong is a bit of an outcast. She dislikes practically everyone she goes to school with, except her friend Myka, and they feel the same about her. They see her as a loner, always negativ

Before reading Are You Mine?, I signed up to reveal the cover...and once I saw it, I was totally smitten! The cover was cute and the description totally had me hooked, and boy, oh boy, did this book ever deliver! I absolutely LOVED it! :D The characters were complex, and completely compelling and I loved getting to experience the story through both Fox and Saige! :D

From the first moment we meet Saige, she seems bristly and downright mean, but then we meet Fox, this wonderful guy who is constantl

An okay read.
Complete review here:

Through all the story they balance each other. Fox's funny side is what Saige needs in her life, so she can open up and stop being a bitch (not my words) to strangers. And they grow up together A LOT! It is great to see when two characters learn with each other and this book is all about learning to balance your feelings and how to balance your life and your choices.

Saige is still undecided about her major in college and Fox is not goi

With this novel Smith takes the transition between high school and college/university and presents it in a very captivating light. She brings forth a myriad of trials and challenges that an individual could face and shows how her characters can come out on top at the end. As a reader you see and (re)live all of the trials and insecurities of a first real relationship, and of two individuals who haven’t had the ideal childhood. Smith very tactfully tackles some really tough and possibly uncomfort ...more

Saige Armstrong isn’t easy to love. For valid reasons, she’s emotionally closed-off, only letting a select few close enough to call them friends. This makes her introverted, moody, and fairly unproductive despite having the monetary means to do anything and everything her heart desires. The problem is she doesn’t know what her heart desires, and she’s in no hurry to find out because she’s too afraid that as soon she finds it, it will be ripped away.

Fox Harrington is one of those book boyfriends

Oh man, this was such a sweet book for no other reason than Fox. He is the sweetest most perfect boy in the world. I'm pretty sure every single teenager in the world has dreamed about him. He's also perfect for Saige. Saige is...rough around the edges. She walks around with pain like it's her toxic best friend that she is only still friends with because they've known each other for so long. She doesn't know how to shake it and she'

So, I really, really enjoyed this book! Saige is frustrating as hell, but I get her. We all have our flaws and Saige has some pretty big ones, but you can’t really blame her. She’s really a great character. It was fun to watch this romance build and develop, especially with all the complications and Saige’s reservations.

Both of these characters have their issues, and it was so much fun watching how they influenced and helped each other grow. They were both good and bad for each other but in a ba

The lives of Saige and Fox have not been pleasant by any means. The ways they have dealt with the hand fate has given them are vastly different.

Saige has one person in her life, her best friend Myka. She has her writing, her independence, and plenty of money, but no direction in her life. As a new high school graduate, Saige has not determined whether she should go live on the beaches of California or attend NYU with Myka. When she bumps into Fox at a graduation party, everything changes and a n

This story is very enjoyable. The only thing that kept it from being a 5 or even 5+ in my book was that Saige only gets to be truly HAPPY for like 10 pages out of the whole book. Even when she's with Fox, and there are happy things going on, she spends the whole book bracing for something bad to happen, and that's a little frustrating to read. Highly enjoyed Fox, tho - super sweet book boyfriend!

This book took me a good while to read, and I'm not exactly sure why. The story itself was interesting and I'm not sure the blurb did it justice, however, Saige and Fox just didnt have the chemistry for me. Add in the weird friends, and mental problems, and something just didnt click.

This was a great romantic read. N.K. Smiths characters always have such rich characterization.. Both Saige and Fox do not disappoint. There are layers to each of them, that make this an extremely gripping and emotional read.

Thanks so much for the great read. I loved it
