I was twelve years old when I fell in love with Piper Kelley. Even at the age of eight, she was everything I wasn’t: brave, bold, and beautiful.
The night of my college graduation party, I finally made my move, but Piper only had eyes for one man—my younger brother.
With a battered heart, I left for Vegas, determined to put her behind me. But eight years later, fate proved

Really enjoyed this read from start to finish. Just enough angst to keep it rolling with an equal blend of sad and happy. Two stubborn leads and some terrific back up characters. Intermingled family/friends from childhood with a dose of suspense, too. Just my kind of delightful reading experience.

This was one book that I’ve had on my kindle for a while, that was recommended by a friend. I’ve never read any thing by this author before, and I was pleasantly surprised! This was a friends to lovers romance that was only a little angsty. But I just loved Lawson and Piper! I’ve never really wanted to strangle two characters from a book before as I do them!! Like seriously, they are 2 of the most hard headed make believe characters ever! I really enjoyed this story! I will definitely be reading ...more
One of the most irritating heroines I’ve read this year. She’s shameless, immature, a complete slob and for a doctor she’s pretty stupid. I don’t know how in the world the H could still love her after seeing what she’s really like. A kid or even a dog would be a better housemate than this girl. At least kids and dogs are willing to learn as long as you’re patient. The H, even though he had the patience of a saint, would never get through someone who’s not willing to listen to anyone but herself. ...more

Oh my word....this book came completely out of nowhere and knocked me off my feet. As I was reading certain parts of this story I could feel my heart aching, and it made me so emotional. It’s not often that books bring out that kind of reaction in me. Piper and Lawsons story was really beautiful and I loved every minute of it.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Lawson Reed has been in love with Piper Kelley since he was 12 years old. Being 4 years older than her, he protected her and watched over her from afar. The whole time they were kids, Piper was in love with someone else – Lawson’s brother, Hampton. The problem – Hampton is gay.

It seems that everyone knew how Lawson felt about Piper, except Piper. She continued to be best friends with Hampton, especially after a tragedy th

Piper’s mother was the nanny for Lawson, Hampton and Georgia so she and her twin brother Jack were like family to them. Lawson is the oldest and he always felt a responsibility to look after Piper and he loved her since he was a child. The only problem is she wasn’t interested in the younger geeky version of himself and she was and developed feelings for his brother Hampton instead. Unable to be close to her without being “close” to her he moved to Vegas.

Eight years later he has moved back to hi

When You Became Mine is fantastic book that will have your mind and heart full of all the feels. Starting with their childhood and continuing through adulthood, you follow characters and a story line that A.S. Teague has brilliantly written.

As the story unfolds, you learn of the hardships that life can throw at you along with the celebrations. Piper and Lawson are childhood frenemies that are thrown together by circumstances and begin to recognize that there is a connection. Well, more Piper tha

4.5/5 stars

There's nothing like unrequited love. The heartache when you love someone for so long and they just can't or won't love you back... this is a story involving unrequited love twice over.

The tragedy that breaks Piper's heart also binds her to Hampton more than ever before. Little did she know that she always belonged to someone else.

The lows from the heartache make the highs from the HEA so good. If you like a book that gives you all of the feels

When You Became Mine is a delicious romantic comedy with just the right  mixture of family, friendship, betrayal, mystery, loss and unconditional love.

The banter is hilarious! Lawson's love for Piper is off the charts! Swoon. The characters make you feel as though you are part of the family. An incredible story that will touch your heart.

When You Became Mine is another phenomenal read by A.S. Teague that I absolutely loved every word of. This book is a childhood friends to lovers romance that spans years and decades and many moments with these characters that will take your breath away. From start to finish this book delivered an outstanding story that was exceptionally written, thoughtfully crafted, and that had me LOVING these characters with all that I had.

I didn't love this one as much as I was hoping to. I absolutely LOVED Undisputed and I was so excited to read a new title from this author. It had a really strong start plus it was one of my favorite premises--a hero who harbors secret love for the heroine for years (to everyone's obvious knowledge but hers). However I think the fact that the hero basically ran away to the other side of the country for 8 years (right after he and said heroine had a "moment" that could possibly have kick-started ...more

“Piper Kelley, there is no one else in this world for me. It is you. It has always been you. And until I’m one hundred and ten it will be you.”

Lawson, Hampton, Georgia, Piper and Jack were raised together, practically as brothers. The first three, the employer's kids. Piper and Jack, twins, are the nanny’s children. Lawson, the eldest, has always been the most distant and reserved. A real nerd, he was not an athletic kid or teenager, he always had a book in his arms and was a joke on the part of

I’m a sucker for a friends to lovers romance and I thought that’s exactly what I was getting into. Except I’m not sure I’d call Piper and Lawsons relationship a friendship at the beginning. Growing up together their families are extremely close and Piper and Lawson are either bickering or ignoring each other more like siblings or cousins tend to do. Lawsons brother Hampton is best friends with Piper and she only has eyes for him and the two of them are always together which leaves Laws

“Opening your eyes, 5 stars”

Lawson is the oldest of the Reed children which meant he spent most of his childhood trying to rein everyone in, especially when you add in the Kelley kids. The five of them were basically raised as siblings. Then one day things started to change for Lawson where Piper was concerned. When he got older he left and hadn’t come back until now. Now Piper is more grown up and right in front of him. Will he finally make a move or forever k

4 Stars!

When You Became Mine takes the reader on a journey that spans 20 years. Two friends, as close as siblings. Piper loved Hampton her entire life, until a tragedy brought secrets to light. Lawson loved Piper, but could never compete with his brother Hampton. Lawson left town and now eight years later, he is back and Piper is his roommate.

This was a good read. I am not usually a fan of time progression books, but I liked how the author did it here. She progressed through important times in t

This is a story about friends to lover. It was a great written story that had me reading for hours on out. They grew up together and then they didn’t see each other for years. Things change when Lawson comes back after being gone for 8 years.

Standalone told in a dual POV with an HEA. I recommend this story.

I enjoyed the story very much! The miscommunication that if prevalent in everyday life is portrayed so well you feel like you are right there wanting to bop both Piper and Lawson on the back of th head for not going head first and telling each other what they feel both positive and negative. I can't help but feel sorry for Hampton even though i want to shake him for falling for anyone that acts like they love him and for the way he ultimately showed his true colors. I can't wait to read more fro ...more

I started reading this book the other night and I had to stop myself from finishing the book or I risk not waking up for an early schedule at work. The entire time the next day I cannot put it out of my head! I was walking and talking and functioning while scenes from the book is playing in my head! Right then and there, I decided to give it the coveted 5-star rating because if a book does that to me, then it is one hell of a story. I did not expect it to be THAT good.

This is the second book I’ve read by this author. I enjoyed this story because I love Lawson and his character. This guy makes nerd and geek sooooo freaking sexy!!! And it helps when he also has the biggest heart ever... Piper, I wanted to smack her upside the head a few times but she has some redeeming qualities lol

Enjoyed the support characters as well!! Lawson’s sister is sooooo freaking funny... Get a copy for yourself and read their story!!! I had some doubts because a brother was invol

Beautiful book! AS’s writing gets better and better with each book. A must read!
This book does NOT make any sense.

DNF 21%

Piper is bold, strong, a spitfire. When she was a girl, she would always get into trouble together with her BF Hamilton. Girls and boys at school would harass her and tease her until her savior intervened. She has loved Hamilton ever since.
That is of course why she has never had a boyfriend while he has been having one girl after the other. *eyeroll* So glad they don't end up together.
Anyways, so Hamilton used to be the one who would supposedly get Piper

No chemistry at all....

I can't understand why Lawson was so infatuated with Piper. They are NOTHING alike and it shows when they were forced to live together when Hampton so rudely evicted her from the apt they shared. She is inconsiderate - leaving her stuff whereever it lands, taking a 2 hour bath when there is only one bathroom in the whole house, etc. Lawson couldn't stand living with her and yet he still wanted her that badly? What did Piper do that was worthy of Lawson's notice?.... Hampto
Anyone who knows me knows I love a good enemies/friends to lovers book, and this one has to be one of my favorites!!!

Piper and her twin brother, Jack, grew up with Lawson, Hampton, and Georgia. As a little girl, Piper gave her heart to Hampton. He was her hero, always taking care of her and protecting her, at least that is what she thought! Lawson was Hampton’s older brother. In reality, he was the protector, only wanting happiness for Piper. However, she always saw him as judgmental, never real

I laughed, I swooned, I cried...well almost. I'm not a cryer but if you are there is a heartbreaking event at the beginning of this story about five youngsters that will pull a few tears out of you. Lawson, Hampton and Georgia are the Reeds sibs and twins, Piper and Jack, live with them. The twins' mother is the Reeds nanny and the kids all grow up as siblings. This is an emotional story about great family dynamics, lasting friendship, tragedy and a sexy romance with characters that pulled me in ...more

This is one of those reads that I have had for a while, and it loaded on my ancient Kindle, that wasn't loading the book I was planning to read. I was very pleasantly surprised that I could not put this book down. I don't really read unless my kids are asleep so mostly at night, but this one I read throughout the entire day to finish, I just had to know what happened. It starts with getting to know how close Piper and her twin brother Jack, with another family they are like brother and sisters w ...more
