College parties, beer, and one-night stands—that was my life.

Now, I hunt down criminals, ethically or not, but if no one’s asking, then I’m not telling. Drinking and women are still included, though I can’t seem to forget the girl who almost gave me her virginity. She would’ve until I realized she was too young, and I wasn’t looking to get thrown into jail.

FIVE HULK STARS for Maddie and Liam 😍💖💜!!!


I couldn't imagine a better book to start my "Reading Challenge 2020" than this one.

O.M.G. 😱!!!

This is definitely the book I will remember for a long time and I didn't regret any minute I spent reading it.

It was a really great book that kept my attention from the first page to the last.

And the end?!?!?!

I need "Always Yours" the right now!!!

"Always Mine" is the fifth book in the "Roommate Duet" series and the first book from "Liam & Madelyn" duet.

I got my mind blown away with this book. Kennedy Fox done a good job on putting every trope/ plot/ twist of forbidden romance into 1 giant story. Do not get me wrong, the combination of twist and turn are good. So good. Like a guilty pleasure addicting chocolate cake. You should not eat it, but you can not help it.

The writing style is also explosive. It keeps me on my seat during my Friday work day. I even ignored my phone call when the plot gets into climax. It is addicting!

I guess Kennedy Fox wanted to start 2020 off with a BANG because my feelings are SHATTERED right now! Being a beloved duo of mine you can say I’m obsessed with their words. The way they write and weave these stories is STUNNING. I don’t think I’ve rated any book in this series lower than 5 stars and I don’t give those stars away easily. The books must be the best of the best. Alas, this one i

Always Mine is the first book in Liam and Madelyn’s duet. I’ve wanted and needed their story desperately. The bits and pieces of them together we got of them in the other books only made me that more intrigued about them. But I never could’ve prepared for the twists and turns this book had and especially the angst that had me raging. I knew this would end in a cliffhanger, but it still didn’t stop me from wanting to throw my kindle. I need answers, and I need them now!

So much focus on her virginity. He's a frat boy player and refuses to take her virginity when she's 17 and then when she's 18 he does, but when he's reintroduced to her he's hoping she listened to him and didn't give away her MOST PRIZE POSSESSION. Cause we all know women aren't worth anything once they've been deflowered... sarcasm in case that wasn't clear.

I found this barf inducing. Authors grow up and write about something other than whether or not she's a virgin. Especially if you're going

The best book in the series so far without any doubt! 😍😍😍

My reactions while reading this book: 😍😂🥺

Let me say at first that I usually take notes while reading so I can write a proper review (if you can call that a review 😅) but I didn’t do that with this book because I just wanted to finish it and I didn’t waste any time with taking notes.

Before I start writing why I loved this book so much I need to mention that, unfortunately, for the first half of the book I had a hard time to place everything

„You’re mine. Promise me, Maddie. No matter what happens.”

Well, I don't want to sound cheesy, but I'm theirs. Kennedy Fox own me. Always Mine was one of my most anticipated books and boooooy, how they delivered. I'm a ball of emotions. Liam and Maddie’s story ruined me in the best possible way. I went through every possible feeling during this read, from swooning and blushing through rage and disappointment. This whirlwind of twists and turns is the best reading experience a romance fan coul

Liam and Maddie’s duet has been highly anticipated since Baby Mine came out and I can’t believe their story is finally here. I absolutely adore this series because it’s been fun watching all the characters get their own story.
Maddie is a great sister, a beautiful dancer and has been crushing on Liam since the very first time she has laid eyes on him.Liam has we wanting my own Bounty hunter. He is hot, a good friend and a little mysterious when it comes to his friends.

Where do I start my review for Always Mine? My thoughts are all over the place! This book was seriously everything!!! I’ve been waiting for the Liam & Madelyn Duet since meeting both characters in Baby Mine and I surely wasn’t upset in the least with their own story! This book surpassed my greatest hopes! Kennedy Fox aren’t one of my favorite authors for nothing! They always succeed in crafting stories with the perfect balance of poignant feelings, humou

So this is the third couple in this Roommate Series, if you've read the others in the series then you will have met Liam and Maddie..... this was the one I was waiting for, the delicious push and pull between them in the other books had me impatiently waiting for this one to arrive, and it's well worth the wait!!!

Maddie is the youngest of the three sisters, brought up in a strict religious household, she is by far the wilder and most rebellious of the three sisters. She couldn't wait to be old e

OMFG!!! Finally Maddie and Liam's story!!!!

I have been on pins and needles waiting for this story and can I just say it did not disappoint! The drama of it all, the CHEMISTRY, the push and pull were everything I was hoping for and so much more!

While it's not necessary to read the other books in the Roommate series, it is beneficial as it gives you a broader and better context of each story line.

That ending...gah Kennedy Fox knows how to make me salivate for more!!!!!

Wow, hot damn! I think this might be Kennedy Fox's best yet! How Maddie and Liam meet in the prologue is HOT and I definitely did not see it coming! We have watched them throughout the other duets with their bickering back and forth and Maddie's relentless pursuit of Liam. They have crazy hot chemistry but Liam fights it and ends up making some bad choices. Their relationship has been four years in the making but I am not sure even they can overcome the obstacles they are facing. Will their love ...more

Wow! I knew this duet would be worth the wait, but I’m in awe of everything I read. This book was a solid 4.5⭐️ read. Liam is a player, cocky & will charm the pants off you with his beautiful words. The push & pull with these 2 keep you on your toes. The chemistry was oozing off the pages. I’m extremely intrigued to see what happens in the final book. If there is something that can come between these couples in these books it will happen worse to Liam & Maddie. I was not ready for this story to ...more

I've been trying to get my thoughts together to write this review without any spoilers and honestly I'm still not ready but here goes...

Having read every single book these two ladies have ever written and knowing how these two write their epilogues... with a major cliff-hanger... and also having read Mason & Sophie's duet where we got that jaw dropping ending, I can say that my heart was in my throat for the entire time I was reading this book.

I've loved all of the books in this series so far, so I was ready for this next duet. I knew from the others that there would definitely be a major cliffhanger, and there was, but it so was not what I had guessed or seen coming as I read. It was easy to figure out from the little hints and clues that Liam was going to end up with some kind of problem from gambling. I did not see what happened though as what would be the way it went. I love that there was a back story between Liam and Maddie that ...more

”Maddie’s always been my best-kept secret, and it looks like she may forever stay that way.”

Kennedy Fox has done it again! 2020 can’t be to a more of a perfect start without one of the most anticipated reads EVER! Always Mine was the perfect amount of slow burn and angst imaginable!

Gearing up for Always Mine featuring Fox’s most anticipated couple, Liam and Maddie, was more than the whirlwind I was expecting! Every page turned was a phenomenon waiting to be unleashed.

I've been waiting for Maddie's and Liam's story for what feels like years!! If you've been reading the other friend's duets books and you've read anything about them...then you know what I mean. Liam was always a character I was interested in and wanted to get inside his head. He is just one of those characters that has always stuck with me and to finally have him in my hands...cue the angel music.

These two were so fun to read and also so aggravating. The slow burn of the story is one of my fav

Ugh, Kennedy Fox is killing me with these cliffhangers!! I've waited through all 4 of the Roommates books for Liam and Maddie! Even though I knew this book would end in a cliffy, as my Kindle kept updating my progress bar, I started to sweat! Sweat, people, it was not cool, especially with where KF leaves us hanging on this one. My heart can't take this anxiety. Lol

Liam and Maggie felt like my old friends going into Always Mine but we learned so much more about their beginnings! I loved (and hat

Maddie and Liam

Their love story should be EPIC, the BEST out of the Corrigan sisters that’s my heart tells me.

But before I got the ARC, I was listening to this book playlist and that alone made me cry which means this book will have all the feels and angst and so much more.

Oh Man, Maddie I feel your pain... I don’t know how Liam will grovel and begged for your forgiveness but you know what they say... it is LOVE when it hurts... that bruises you thru pain and that feelings makes Love stronger an

Kennedy Fox has kicked 2020 off with a “Go Big or Go Home” attitude and boy, did they deliver! I’ve been obsessed with them since the very beginning and I have to say that with each book, they step up their game.

Always Mine? GAME CHANGER!!!

I could not wait to get more of Liam and Maddie. I anxiously anticipated this book and it did not disappoint. This book will give you all the feels and leave you wanting so much more. Liam and Maddie have crazy chemistry, like two magnets. I love the banter and got a kick out of how funny and witty I found them both.

Liam is a cocky, arrogant player used to getting any woman he wants and partying all the time. He meets Maddie while she is too young and almost ends up taking her virginity. Maddie is a strong, determined woman who has grown up. Liam is now hunting down criminals and has slowed down but never forgotten about Maddie. The two of them have an intense chemistry that won't be denied. The story does end on a cliffhanger but the next book is just around the corner. I can't wait to find out what happen ...more

Of course, it is only the first part, and if you have been keeping up with the duets, you know there is more to come! But these two! Finding out things that we do in this series, makes more sense but the pull that these two have is just brilliant. The push and pull keeps you on your toes with giggles and swoon worthy moments.
