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. 

And 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.

So... what to say about Baby Mine?
I first met Kennedy's Fox work when I accidently stumbled upon her instagram and from the excerpts and teasers for this books I got very curious.
I can't tell you how happy I was to see this book on my kindle! It was just *ahfagfiagfaliyi* but then I started and I think I had all these expectations for this book that weren't quite met.
I'll start by saying this was not a bad book, I greatly appreciated getting into the story, meeting these characters and their stories. Neither Lennon nor Brandon for most of the book were that likeble as characters. To Lennon, even though, I understood the difficulty of living with someone as annoying as Brandon, many of her attitudes had me wishing I could get there and strangle her. But then, Brandon was also the biggest A****... Honestly dude, I get you're suffering but get your grownup pants on and stop complaning.
I found the writing too quickly paced at some point, however, by the end (mainly after the big event) the author seemed to have a grip on the story and that little problem seemed to have been resolved.
My biggest problem was the writing, because in the beginning everything happened too quickly, there wasn't time for me to get attached to the characters, I didn't quite feel like they were real and I was rooting for them until the very end of the book - when things got *ahem* interesting.

But it was, overall not the worst of first books and I have all confidence that the second one will be even better!

Rating: 3 stars.
