Review | Rating: 4 stars
Kennedy Fox released a chapter a week through their newsletter for Forever Mine and every week I told myself I would wait until multiple chapters were released before reading so I wouldn't have to wait. But every week I was opening my email and reading the chapter right then! That's how good this novella was. Every chapter ended on a cliffhanger and then I had to wait a week to see what happen next. Even though it was short Kennedy Fox had such great pacing that nothing happened too fast. They did not rush anything when it came to the romance between Hayden and Savannah. They didn't reveal what happened to break the two of them up for a few weeks. The characters were well written and relatable. I loved getting to know more about Hunter before we get to read Baby Mine.
Now let's get into my thoughts about the characters. I loved Savannah from the beginning. She was sweet, loyal, and talented. I also loved Hayden from the start but I wished he would have been more up front with Veronica from the beginning. He was such a nice guy that he didn't want to hurt her feelings so he didn't tell her that they were just friends and Veronica caused problems for Hayden and Savannah on numerous occasions in this story. I disliked her with a passion. I loved Donnie as well. He was funny and usually said it like it was. He cracked me up a lot. I loved Sav and Hayden together. They had this fire that just leapt off the screen even when they were not together. Once they finally decided to take another chance, I was fanning myself with how hot they were together.
I thought this was such a sweet, steamy second-chance romance that had amazing pacing and kept me engrossed throughout the twelve weeks. I love second-chance romances even though the time that the couple loses makes me sad, I've found that when they get back together, they realize just how much they still love and want to be with each other. They will most likely stay together after that and I love how much stronger Hayden and Savannah's relationship the second go around! Go get your copy of Forever Mine on Amazon!
