The worst day of my life happened when Brandon died.
We had our entire future mapped out.
Careers, marriage, kids—in that order.
Then the universe threw a curveball and ended it all.
As I come to terms with everything, I learn I’m carrying his baby. Now I’m living with his roommate, the guy who’s made my life a living hell the past two years. Hunter’s now the one to hold me up when all I want to do is fall.
Knowing my religious parents will never accept the pregnancy out of wedlock, Hunter offers to be my fake husband. While I think he’s gone crazy, it’s the only plan that’ll keep them in my life. So I do whatever it takes to make our relationship believable—kissing, touching, even letting him hold me when we sleep. The lines are so blurred neither of us want to admit we’re no longer pretending.
The guilt of what we’re doing eats me alive as I struggle to deal with my emotions. I push him away, but he pulls me closer, showing me how he’s always felt.
Just as I begin to follow my heart, I learn Hunter’s been keeping secrets.
And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my life…
**This is book 2 in the Hunter & Lennon duet and must be read after Baby Mine. Recommended for ages 18+**

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is one of those times where I love the book but not so much the heroine. Hunter saved this entire duet for me. Let me explain. So, you obviously read book one if your here. If not, stop reading now because there are likely spoilers for the first book in my review. As I was saying, I did not like Lennon in the first book; barely tolerated her until the last chapters of the book. Hunter wasn’t perfect either but I was understanding towards his reasons. It could likely be my opinion only, but I absolutely hated what Lennon put Hunter through.
Hunter was a strong character. Saying he is loyal to a fault is an understatement. There were times I was so frustrated with how he let Lennon run hot and cold and didn’t once complain.
So, getting to the cliffhanger at the end of book one. When the book started, I expected the story to continue right at that moment but it didn’t and I did not mind that at all. I wanted these two to have a bit of fun for once and when they got to Utah, they did exactly that. That part of the book was sweet and in my opinion, the moments where Lennon and Hunter’s relationship started to become something more. Unfortunately, Lennon continued her hot and cold behavior with Hunter after they returned home to California and this broke my heart. Of all the heroes I read this year, his character is one of my favorites. Not only was he there for Lennon during all the rough times, but because he wanted to be as close to her as possible he put his own heart through an emotional ringer. I love him for his loyalty, perseverance, and patience, and protectiveness. A less better man would have walked away a long time ago but Hunter kept on hoping and believing that things would work out.
The rest of the book is a slow burn. I appreciated this aspect because like the development of their friendship into more, it had to be a slower pace to be believable. And it was. By the end, I believed in them as a couple. I believed in Hunter and Lennon’s happily-ever-after.
I’ve always enjoyed this author duo’s writing and I will continue to come back for more. The next duet in this series will feature Mason and Sophie. I have been rooting for those two from the start. I can’t wait to see how these two will find there HEA. Knowing these authors, it will not be easy.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you taking the time to read it. 🙂
