Can a secret crush . . .

Whether front and center in her life or on the periphery, the tall, brooding artist has made his presence seductively and irresistibly known. But whenever they start to get close, Cam pulls away.

BE MINE FOREVER is a friends to lovers story with incredible depth, a brutal history and unrequited love that has spanned almost two decades, surviving through many painful events. It’s a story about acceptance, forgiveness, facing one's deepest demons and letting them go so the life you’re meant to live can be grasped.

Jo is sassy, fierce, compassionate, and loyal and has had a crush on Cam forever, since Jo's extended family took Cam into their lives and made him feel safe

“I can still salvage this.”

“Yes, if you move fast, but Peter seems pretty determined to get the girl.”

Cam abandoned his focus face and narrowed his eyes at Jo’s father, who was conspicuously concentrating on the board between them.
“I meant the game.”

Thank You Kennedy Ryan for giving Cam and Jo the love they both deserve. I'd never settle for them having other than an Epic Story. I knew I liked Jo for a reason, she's strong yet fragile, Cam too.

What you wait for years on a man to reciprocate your deepest desires knowing he might never? Are the most tortured walking amongst us in plain sight or hidden in the shadows?

Be Mine Forever comes as the third contemporary romance book in The Bennett's Saga by Kennedy Ryan, the main characters of which are different from the previous two books. I would not recommend readin

I love the Bennett series. So freaking much. From the characters to their stories. Everything is perfection. Yes, this can be read as a standalone but I strongly recommend to start with the first book When You're Mine. I did and it only strengthened my love and connection to the characters even more.

Jo is my kind of woman. Loyal to the bone, strong and loving. Her love for Cam was forever. As a friend and as a confident. I'm so in awe of her strength. To put her love aside just to be his friend

I have been converted!! I will now #ComeForCam anytime, anywhere ;) Ok….let me back up a second. Be Mine Forever by Kennedy Ryan is book 3 in the Bennett Family Series. Although it can be read as a stand alone, why would you do something so silly?? Please….read When You Are Mine and Loving You Always first, this way you will truly have an understanding of the whole story :) That being said….let’s get to the good stuff.

This is my first book from this author, and I absolutely love it! She has a unique writing style that draws you in and keeps your attention from beginning to end. This book earns a definite five stars from me.

Jo Walsh, is a kick ass heroine. She is a no nonsense, doesn't take crap from anyone kind of girl. She is strong willed, speaks her mind, and gives as good as she gets. She has been in love with Cam for forever and has been watching from the sidelines with her unrequited love.

Yes! Yes! It was all I could do to keep from screaming! What an incredible love story this is! Omg! Yes this book ended the way I'd hoped that it would, with some incredible twists, of course.

If you've read Book 1-When You Are Mine & Book 2-Loving You Always then you know the road that Jo and Cam have been on or not on for 17 years. If you haven't read them, you can still love, respect and enjoy their journey in this book.

All the feels. I loved these characters and their journey.
Beautifully written with some tough topics and also some important topics.

I just finished and my mind and heart is still in their world. I'll come back with hopefully a good review for Jo and Cam ❤

***4.5 stars***

Wow this was a huge surprise for me! I haven’t read the first two books in this series, but I don’t even think that preparation could have made me expect what was coming here, and I was impressed by what an emotional punch Kennedy Ryan gives her readers with the mesmerizing Cameron Mitchell. He’s been through a childhood of hell and made it to the other side, but he’s bottled that all up and never allowed his heart to take another punch. At least, he thought he hadn’t, but really

My love for Kennedy Ryan reaches the skies, even the universes that we don’t know yet. Her latest book came out and before it even came out I already wanted it so badly.

We meet Cam and Jo in the previous books, in Walsh and Kerris’ love story. Cam was Kerris’ husband for a while and Jo was Walsh’s cousin. Between When You Are Mine and Loving You Always, so MAN

4 1/2 stars!
This truly has become one of my favourite series. The writing is wonderful, emotional, articulate, intelligent. Heartfelt and romantic.
I loved catching up with favourite characters, this time it was Jo and Cam. It was great getting inside Cam's heartbreaking head, but for me, Jo steals the show. She is the kind of strong, smart heroine that I love to read. She has been in love with Cam most of her life. She wants him. But she doesn't need him.

Favorite Quote: “He’s not my husband,” Kerris said with so much composure, you never would have known five minutes before she had been doubled over with a contraction. “Anymore, I mean, my husband’s away…He’s um…Cam is…”

“I’m a Family friend.” The last thing either of them needed was to air their weirdness in the maternity ward.

I have been looking forward to this novel for months! The eagerly anticipated conclusion to Kennedy Ryan’s, The Bennetts, series was exceptional as a series ender. [ Inse

Soooooo, I absolutely loved book 1 and 2 of this series - they read as a duet. This book 3 which I thought was going to be a series continuation....abruptly halted into it's own standalone after the first chapter, which was fine. BUT, I just could not form any connection to Jo and Cam being together - it was nada, zilch feels for me. So I did a lot of skimming and avoiding, and finally just forced myself to finish. But I just didn't love them. Not sure I'll pick up the 4th book. I'm satisfied wi ...more

My Thoughts:

Ms. Ryan has impressed me with her debut series, The Bennetts. I have loved the previous two books in this series, but I am obsessed with Be Mine Forever. I couldn't have put this book down, even if I tried. It was that amazing!!! I cannot even express the profound and deep love I have for this book. No words could adequately express the way it made me feel so much and so deeply. I cried, my heart broke, I fell in love with a fictional character (Cam), and he made my heart pound, my

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Cam by the end of Loving You Always, but I’d hoped that Kennedy Ryan would be able to change my mind about him, and she succeeded! I really enjoyed reading Cam and Jo’s story – I was a big fan of the writing and of how Kennedy Ryan was able to portray Cam in such a different light. And Cam and Jo are just scorching together!

This is my favorite book in the Bennett trilogy! I absolutely loved the characters, especially Cam, who is far from perfect, but a diamond in the rough. Cam is haunted by a dark past, and as he begins to chip away at the emotional barriers he's built up, terrifying secrets are revealed. And through the unraveling, the one woman he has vowed to protect is set on a dangerous path. A raw, revealing, and gripping tale, Cam's journey will make you laugh, cry, and fall in love.

I'm shocked to say that this was my favorite story in the series. I didn't know how I would feel about Cam after the way he acted in Loving You Always. I was not thrilled with him, but I knew there was so much more to him. He was redeemed almost immediately, and I fell in love just as quickly. Cam is a tortured soul, to say the least, and it is always hard to read about such a horrific theme. Kennedy did a beautiful job writing this book, because I felt every bit of his pain.

The ending was beautiful to see and I completely agree with Cams thoughts of this is how things should have always been. Like I mentioned before these wonderfully beautifully broken characters have been through a lot. The character development for Cam was a gift to see I knew there was a wonderful man inside and I’m beyond happy he got his story. Jo? Don’t get me started on this beautiful firecracker she has always been a strong assertive char

Kennedy wrote a stellar ending to The Bennett Series. I was very excited to get Jo and Cam’s story. Delving deeper into Cam’s history was very poignant to read. The build up from the first two books has been amazing. I was so looking forward to see how Kennedy was going to end things with Cam. I wasn’t disappointed. Oh, Cam and Jo…

Be Mine Forever is my favorite of the series. It’s hard to write this review because not only do I not want to give any spoilers from this book, but I want to re

This 3rd book in The Bennett’s Trilogy is a wonderfully perfect conclusion to this magnificent series! It happens too often that a series becomes repetitive, blending into one another or petering out at the end. This book is nothing like that, it is dynamic, engaging and raw! This is Cameron Mitchel and Jo Walsh's painfully beautiful account of two people born on opposite poles who are attracted to each other from the very start and their long fought struggle to be together.

Be Mine Forever by Kennedy Ryan is the third book in The Bennett Series. You could probably read it as a stand alone, but I don't recommend it. Simply for the reason you would miss the experience of the first two. I read them never having heard of Kennedy Ryan. I'm so glad I took the chance with this author and you will be too!

The series starts out with three central characters: Walsh, Kerris and Cam. Don't dismiss this series when you read the next sentence. There is a love triangle.

In all honesty, I came to the Bennetts series late in the game and was intrigued by the synopsis of the third book. I love anything that has to do with art and artists; the unrequited love/loving forever from afar just seemed like the cherry on top of the sundae. Excited to read the third book in the series, I decided to do things right and start with the first book and work my way there. Unfortunately I didn’t realize that the plots of the earlier books centered around one of my absolute no-gos ...more

“It started at her mouth with just a wobble, a tremble of her lips. Then her hands joined in, fingers shaking until she had to cram the emotion into her fists. She was imploding, but everything wanted out. Curses, screams, sobs. Every expression of this hurt was trapped inside her body and wanted out, but she could only allow herself tears.” 0 likes
