#Review “Truly Mine” by Kennedy Fox

This is a friends-to-lovers roommate romance filled with drama, suspense, & of course, plenty of angsty slow burn goodness you’ve come to expect in a Kennedy Fox book!

Sarah’s Musings…


Slow burn of epic proportions, Kennedy Fox delivers another romance that left me demanding book two immediately. Seriously, I do not want to wait.

Sophie and Mason are characters readers have met in the previous duet (you do not need to read that duet to understand this one). There characters are not wildly different from who we have seen in the previous book, but Kennedy Fox does a wonderful job showing explaining the reasons behind their actions, more specifically highlighting the Sophie’s.

This is a slow burn romance, so I will say that I didn’t always feel the tension and chemistry burning between these two. There are moments, at the beginning for example, where the spark between them comes alive. Additionally there are sensitive issues with the heroine that make the sexual chemistry between the two have to be put on the back burner. I am dying to see the heat turn up between them in book two.

The pacing of the story, particularly the beginning was a bit slow for me. Because of the ending of Hunter and Lennon’s book and the synopsis, I expected it to be a different beginning, but once we got to the present, the book picked up in terms of pacing. I really became engaged with Sophie’s dilemma and the fall out as a result of the choices from both characters. I do wish that I felt more of the story. There were many times that I felt I was being told the story versus living it with the characters and feeling the emotions. As almost all Kennedy Fox books, that ending. LORD, that ending. It has me needing book 2 like right now!

Kennedy Fox has mastered how to keep readers engaged and one-clicking. As a reader, I am always dying for the next book, to see how the HEA is going to be earned. I am certainly here for it!

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a
brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed
skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized.
As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and
taunting lips. Resisting her wasn’t an option, and we quickly became a
desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest
sin, but I was no saint.
Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting
her wasn’t a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs.
Friends. It’s all we can ever be.
After years of lying to myself and keeping her at a distance, I
want to pull her close. Sophie’s on my mind more than ever as my instincts to
protect her take over. Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away
and makes it clear she doesn’t need me.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her I’m the
good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend
and I start throwing punches.
And ends when I’m arrested for his murder.
