[Release Blitz] Always Mine by Kennedy Fox - Review

College parties, beer, and one-night stands—that was my life.
Now, I hunt down criminals, ethically or not, but if no one’s asking, then I’m not telling. Drinking and women are still included, though I can’t seem to forget the girl who almost gave me her virginity. She would’ve until I realized she was too young, and I wasn’t looking to get thrown into jail. 

In a twist of fate, we’re reunited, except she’s no longer underage but still equally off-limits.
After ignoring her relentless advances, she starts to wear me down. I only have so much willpower when she’s around, running her smart mouth and showing off her impeccable dance moves. 

Just when my restraint starts to crumble, my poor choices finally catch up with me, putting us both in danger. 
There’s no easy way to explain why I betrayed her, but I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe—even if it means breaking her heart.

ALWAYS MINE is a slow-burn, intense romance wrapped up in a suspenseful beautiful love story. It's book 1 in the Liam & Madelyn duet and must be read first.

My Review:
So here we are, at the last "Duet" of this series. If you've been reading the other duets in the series, you had to have known that Maddie and Liam's story was the next one to come. We are introduced to these characters in the previous duets: Liam was part of the friend group of Hunter and Brandon, who kicked off the first duet, and Maddie, is the youngest Corrigan sister. From what we knew of Maddie from before, she was the youngest sister, but kind of the wild child of sorts. She would always say things that had me going "omg" in the previous books, and you could tell she was really attracted to Liam, but he made it clear as day that they were not for each other, and perhaps that was because of her age, or the fact that she was the younger sister of his friend's girlfriends, and he didn't want to mess that up. 

What I enjoyed learning in this book was that Maddie and Liam met way before they were introduced by their friend group. We learn that they met at a party, and Maddie almost gave her virginity to him, until he learned that she was much younger than she said she was. Years later, they meet again, but they pretend to sweep it all under the rug. Well, for the most part, since Maddie still flirts with Liam incessantly. You got small snippets of them in the other books, but I felt like I really got to know the characters more in this book. Liam has a lot more going underneath the surface, and although his job is a bounty hunter, you learn a bit about why he is reluctant to start up relationships and some of the choices he makes. I do like that despite trying to deny Maddie, and saying certain things to put up a front, he's actually quite sweet on her. And what I liked too was how we got more of Maddie and just how she is. She seems like the wild child next to Lennon and Sophie, but she's an incredibly loving sister and she always puts others first, and cares so much.We also just learn more about her and you see a lot of growth from the small snippets we saw before. 

I can't say too much without spoiling the plot, but the last book that wrapped up Mason and Sophie's story did tease at what was to come here, and boy, I thought that small snippet was angsty. Buckle up because this one is FULL of angst, and there are moments that definitely shocked me. It kind of brought me back to the Checkmate Series again with the hint of drama that definitely had me turning the pages to see what happens next. I can't wait to see how it all unfolds in the next one and just see more of Liam and Maddie together. I will say too, KF delivers once again on the sexy and swoony moments because their chemistry is intense! If you are a fan of KF books, this is another wonderful installment. If you haven't read KF yet, what are you waiting for?!? You can start off with the Roomate series with Lennon and Hunter's story. KF delivers charming characters, intense chemistry, great family and friendship dynamics, a looooot of angst, but also a whole lot of sweet and sexy moments as well. You won't be disappointed! 

My rating of the book: ✮✮✮✮½ - 4.5/5 stars
Disclaimer: I received an advanced readers copy of this book from Kennedy Fox in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.  

Rehearsals, leotards, and textbooks—that was my life. 

Dancing is all I’ve ever known, but when Liam’s problems turn everything upside down, I’m thrust into a world I know nothing about. Secrets and betrayal changed the man I’ve fallen for and he isn’t who I thought he was. Regardless, Liam is all I’ve ever wanted and though I’m struggling with my emotions, deep down I’d do anything for him. 

When Liam admitted his true feelings, things finally fell into place. Now they’re falling apart. Saving our relationship is his top priority, but keeping him alive is mine. Corruption and power are their game and Liam is nothing more than a pawn. 

Playing by the rules won’t end well, but I can’t let him fight alone this time. 
Our happily ever after is so close I can taste it, but then it quickly crashes and burns, threatening to destroy us. Giving up on the love of my life isn’t an option, but in the end I might not be able to save him.

ALWAYS YOURS is a slow-burn, intense romance wrapped up in a suspenseful beautiful love story. It's book 2 in the Liam & Madelyn duet and must be read in order.
