REVIEW: Baby Mine By Kennedy Fox
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.
To her singing in the shower every morning, dancing in the kitchen while she makes coffee, and doing yoga in our living room, I can’t stop thinking about her in all the wrong ways. She’s not mine and never will be, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to push her against a wall and claim her mouth.
She’s constantly on me for making messes, bringing chicks home every weekend, and being a smartass when their PDA gets on my nerves. Considering neither of them know how I feel, it’s not fair for the way I act toward them. I should move out so I can get over her for good; however, the selfish part of me can’t let go.
But then the unthinkable happens...
When my best friend dies in a motorcycle accident, the two of us are left to grieve our loss together. Instead of pushing her away, I pull her closer.
Just as we come to terms with our new reality, she finds out she’s pregnant with his baby. And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my life...

Two people bound by grief.
Two people who can never be together.
Two people who need each other more than ever.
As long as I keep remembering that, I can do this. I can be there for her in the way she needs me.
Friends. - Hunter
Gah. I am smitten. With Hunter, with Lennon, with Branden and with Kennedy Fox's writing!
I LOVED the angst filled and beautiful experience of reading Baby Mine so very much! It was a unique surprise pregnancy book that had my heart filling with love! There were so many different parts that I loved about this book and I felt like it hit every single one of my favourite sub-genres in romance!
There was unrequited love, the tease of a love triangle, enemies to friends and a surprise pregnancy thrown in the mix!
I'd read the blurb of Baby Mine months ago when it was first released but chose not to read the blurb again before I started it. I remembered key parts of it and when Branden was introduced as Lennon's boyfriend I was all kinds of confused and half expected a love triangle. Knowing that Branden's life would eventually be cut short had me on the edge of my seat waiting for the inevitable to happen. Brandon was a character I could very easily have fallen love with if he was our male lead. So very sweet, confident and funny, all the things we love in our heroes!
“One day at a time,” I remind her. Before I have time to think better of it, I pull her back into my arms again and kiss the top of her head. “It’s okay to be sad, Lennon. Just don’t let the sadness consume you so much that you stop living.” - Hunter
But Hunter? God. Hunter had me frustrated and swooning at the same time. He antagonised Lennon at every moment possible and had her so stressed out and wound tight but when the unthinkable happens. Hunter becomes the most swoon worthy and caring friend to Lennon.
In the darkness, my thoughts speak loudly, and nothing stops my emotions from boiling over. - Lennon
I wish I could tell you all the reasons I absolutely loved the first part of Hunter and Lennon's story but I honestly believe it's best read blind with no spoilers so you can experience each of these characters emotions and turmoil first hand.
I've been craving a heart wrenching and angst filled read like Baby Mine for so long. I went in with high hopes and every single one of them was met and surpassed. I absolutely lost myself in this beautilful book full of incredible moments. I cried, laughed, I swooned.
Kennedy Fox tackled a forbidden love story in an incredibly heart warming, angst riddled way that had me in a whirlwind of emotions! I feel deeply for Hunter and Lennon and I'm counting down the seconds until I can't my hands on Baby Yours!
For the first time in my life, I truly understand how Romeo and Juliet felt, not wanting to live without the other. And if I would’ve joined him on that ride, who knows what my own fate would’ve been or if any of this would’ve happened. As I kiss my fingertips and place them on his lips, the lips I’ve kissed for the past two years, I know I’ll never be the same. At least we had that, but whoever said it’s better to have loved and lost is fucking wrong. - Lennon
