Review: Truly Mine by Kennedy Fox (Mason & Sophie #1)

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


Truly Mine, Book 1

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, and 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.




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.



Truly Mine is another epic piece of the Kennedy Fox library. With Slow slowwwww burning, intense chemistry and a shock factor of an ending.

Picking up where Baby the events of Baby Mine &

Baby Yours leaves off Sophie’s and Mason’s lives are thrown for a loop and now the first part to their story focuses on their lives together and individually as they have to deal with the fallouts associated with it. It gives you all the pieces to Mason and Sophie’s relationship that we’ve been wanting in addition to getting to know them more. Detailing Sophie’s trauma while also explaining the depth of Mason’s cold shoulder attitude this whole time. While I loved getting know each character, personally I could have gone without all of the repeated scenes from the first set of books (but it works out for those who didn’t read that yet).

Something I love about Truly Mine is Mason and Sophie’s characters are relatable and deal with real issues. As someone who as seen first hand what Sophie experienced was both hard and enlightening into the situation many women deal with. Kennedy Fox does an outstanding job writing real life events that readers can relate to on a deeper and more emotional level, not easily feasible for every author. It’s one of the things that always keeps me coming back to their books because I know there will be tears but laughs too…..oh and the dirty talk and description of panty melting men 😉

Truly Mine is a great read and one easily lost in once you start!

My rating: 4.7/ 5 stars


Truly Yours, Book 2

Releasing: September 10th

I knew within moments of meeting Mason Holt that he would change my life forever.
I just didn’t realize how much.
As my world spirals out of control, he continues to stay by my side, protecting and taking care of me. 
Being just friends is all he’s been able to offer, that is until both of our lives are threatened. Now that our relationship is blossoming into something more, I can’t be what he needs even if I wished I could.
Bad timing strikes again.
When I think we can finally be together, someone threatens to tear us apart. I’m not the same girl Mason met three years ago, but I’m determined to fight for what I’ve always wanted…him.
