Forever is a heartbeat away . . .
Kerris Moreton knows how to make things work. Bounced from foster home to foster home as a kid, she adapted; when opportunity arose, she thrived. Now, about to open her own business and accept a marriage proposal, Kerris is ready to build the life she’s always wanted. The only thing missing? A passionate connection with her would-be fiancé, Cam. Kerris wants to believe that sparks are overrated-until Walsh Bennett lights her up like the Fourth of July.
. . . but what about love?
As one of the East Coast’s most eligible bachelors, Walsh enjoys financial independence, fulfilling work with his family’s nonprofit, and plenty of female attention. But lately he’s been distracted by the one woman he can’t have. Lovely to look at and even sweeter to know, Kerris is the soul mate Walsh never thought he would find. The problem is, his best friend found her first . . .
A really good friend of mine recommended this book…thank you Margie! And thank you Kennedy Ryan for sending it :).
I haven’t read much lately due to lack of time, but I read When You Are Mine in a few days. Loved the fact that it has been written from different point of views. It gives the reader a sense of what’s going on in each character’s mind.
The story is about a love triangle and half way in, Kennedy inserted a fourth player (I hadn’t seen it coming :). Cam and Krissie have a similar childhood, both being orphans and having gone through abuse of some sort. Cam was lucky enough to meet The Bennets, through their son, Walsh who became the brother he never had. That’s how Kerris met Walsh and felt ‘that’ spark for the first time. But Cam was her safety. Who will she choose? Well that…I have to let you find out. One truly wonderful thing is the message the author is sending. Even though The Bennets were wealthy, their volunteering and kindness is what defines them. What happens at the end of the book, shows that they are merely humans, just like us. That moment broke my heart and brought tears to my eyes. Kerris’ kindness is a lesson to all of us. She tries to do the right thing, even at the cost of her happiness. But was she right? I guess we’ll find out in the sequel, which comes out in October.
