I saw her first.
Blonde. Gorgeous. Feisty.
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.

In true KENNEDY FOX fashion, the angst is off the charts. Add to that the forbidden nature of Hunter and Lennon’s relationship and that cliff hanger, and I’m DEAD!

5 Unrequited CROWNS

KENNEDY FOX brings their signature angst with Baby Mine. By providing readers with a host of characters we love, a romance that makes us swoon, and a tragedy that wrecks our hearts, Baby Mine kicks off what is sure to be an EPIC duet.

Two people bound by grief.
Two people who can never be together.
Two people who need each other more than ever.

Baby Mine by Kennedy Fox was sweet, forbidden, and filled with so much angst it overflows at times!

My heart goes out to Hunter as his poor heart was put through the shredder. His unrequited feelings were palpable. He was a man of many masks, always putting up a brick wall or being a complete jerk in order to fight his emotions towards Lennon at every turn.

Damn, ya’ll … these ladies just don’t disappoint.

I almost didn’t read this ARC. Tragedy struck my family like a tornado recently and for a while I couldn’t concentrate enough to read a sentence and when I finally did, I chose a fluff book because I couldn’t absorb any more sadness. It’s been about 4 weeks since the epic blow and I was really worried I wouldn’t be able to finish ….. but I did and it was glorious.

The storyline was fun for most of this journey, until it wasn’t. You obviously know t

Oh my heart!! This book took me completely by surprise and it was just so gut-wrenching. The blurb really doesn’t prepare you for the rollercoaster of emotions you will feel, even from the very first page.
The story of Hunter, Lennon and Brandon has me hooked and I was absolutely gutted when I got to the cliffhanger on that last page and realised I would have a few weeks to wait until the next book was released. Needless to say, the minute it hits my kindle, I will be diving straight in.

4.5 "Aching" Stars
I’m always so impatient for each new release by Kennedy Fox and this new Roommates Series had me ecstatic! Just from the blurb, the first duet of this series about Hunter and Lennon promised angst and heartache mixed with laughter and tears! I was so right as my heart felt so much pain intertwined with hope and beauty inside the pages of this emotional story!

I’ve been wanting to read a Kennedy Fox book for a while now so when I seen Baby Mine and read the info I knew I had to read it and boy, I’m super happy I did.

Baby Mine is surprising, fun and a little heartbreaking, when I begun reading I never expected to feel so many feels like I did.

Brandon and Hunter have best been friends for the longest time. They do everything together even live to

I think I'll just be crying in a corner until May 23 when book 2 comes out. 😭 That ending... Ugh.

This book is exactly what I've been needing after an endless book slump. This book grabbed me and had me reading in one day and the final few pages the next morning. My first book by this author duo also.

Holy Crap! The tension in this one is insane!!! So much angst and sweetness packed in. I can't even. One minute I was dying of anticipation and the next smiling. Although this book is heartbreaking

Y'all must know by know I'm an angst wh*re, well this book got my heart going or more like the opposite... it almost killed it.

Kennedy Fox has done it again! This book is on point and amazing. Just when I think they can’t top their previous book, their next one comes out and is better than the previous one. Baby Mine has become one of my all time favorites. Lennon and Hunter’s relationship is complicated but draws you in and has you rooting for them and hoping they will figure things out together.

So tickle me impressed, Kennedy Fox has done it again! I know, yay, and don't look at me like that, I can't help it - after the letdown that (at least for me) is Falling for the Cowboy, I was heartbroken to admit that for once, Kennedy Fox did not blow me away. But here we are again and oh my golly miss molly this is absolutely plum adorable, fun and just down right witty and delicious. Baby Mine absolutely took me by surprise, I was smitten, I was intrigued, and my heart swooned.

Kennedy Fox, without any remorse, ripped my heart from my chest and decided to play ping-pong with it. Good Lord... The angst in this book has reached a whole new level... Baby Mine is a book that awakens all possible emotions- confusion, disappointment, shock, unimaginable pain and hope that bursts with the end of the story like a bubble. But despite the cliffhanger that makes you want to throw your e-reader through the room and howl to the heavens, there’s still a thread of hope that everythin ...more

It was so much more than I was expecting. I was sucked in when I read the blurb for this book, even though I was extremely nervous to read this story….I had a fear of it being a triangle. I am glad that I gave this story a chance because it was unlike anything I could have imagined.

Oh my gosh! I need book two right now! I hate cliffhangers because I am the epitome of impatient. I get so invested if the story is great, therefore I live with anxiety waiting for the book's resolution. Don't get me wrong, some cliffhangers are just meh and I can wait for those closures patiently. However, Baby Mine was so good! This book has so much emotion. I will tell you now it is sad, tragic, emotional, and full of angst. This is one HEA I will be looking forward to.

Hunter & Lennon's story has me all messed up guys! I was left right up and down!! Like Kennedy Fox ladies said I WAS NOT READY FOR THIS!! My heart was breaking from the moment Hunter went home ALONE and then found something in the kitchen that changed his world. Gah, my heart still guys.

"Baby Mine" is an original, emotion, truly sensational read. Kennedy Fox has written a story that you will get invested in. I fell in love with every character. My heart literally broke along with the characters. I seriously love Lennon and Hunter. The connection these two share is so different. This is a wonderful slow burn angsty romance.

I had to sit on this for a few days before I sat down to write my review. I was processing everything that I just read. Now I'm a huge fan of Kennedy Fox, they're definitely one of my favorite author duos out there and their books are always one that I'm looking forward to. I may be in the minority, although completely childish at times, Hunter made this book for me and couldn't connect with Lennon ... at all. He is the definition of the most loyal friend that you could EVER have. And my heart a

Hunter and Lennon will put you thru an emotional rollercoaster. They meet, flirt and she ends up with his best friend. Hunter gets salty and Lennon is clueless of his feelings towards her. He’s NOT the nicest to her after that and it’s tough reading how much they go at it. But then tragedy strikes and Hunter is there for Lennon. They start leaning on each other and a beautiful banter begins while they are both grieving and trying to heal. The unexpected happens to Lennon and Hunter is there. Eve ...more

OMG!! I didn’t get that’s where the title of the next book would come from. I did NOT see that coming! I need book 2 now!!

I loved this one! It had a lot of angst, both on the part of Hunter and his love for Lennon that he couldn't share because she was his best friend's girl, as well as when that same best friend dies, leaving both of them mourning but only having each other. The pregnancy was obviously something we knew would come about from the synopsis, but I really like the way it was handle

I read this book fairly quickly because I was enjoying it so much and just didn't want to put it down. This is one story where I loved the main male character and then hated him and then loved him again. Then I was just an emotional wreck and there is a cliffhanger.

I swear I have never been such an emotional wreck while reading a book before!! Kenndy Fox you ladies sure know how to write a book that makes a reader want the next book right away. I don't want to wait until the next book in this du

Raw. Real. Emotional. Desire. Devastation. These are just a few words to describe Baby Mine by Kennedy Fox. Their most heart-felt book yet. I could feel each emotion coming off the pages and it had me glued to my kindle!

Review by Lisa Kane

Hunter's job as a bartender has a lot of perks-an endless supply of hook ups and the money isn't bad. It pays the bills and it he won't be doing it forever. Although, tonight he would rather be hanging out with his best friend, Brandon getting smashed instead of serving up the drinks. That is until a beautiful blonde with big blue eyes asks him what he would recommend.

Considering I work in a bar where the ladies parade their asses in short skirt and low-cut tops, I s
