I’m not your girl next door.
They call me loud, blunt, and too gorgeous for my own good.
A woman who can’t be tamed.
The problem? He’s my brother’s best friend. My new roommate. And off-limits.
Until we spend a wild night between the sheets.
But secretly dating isn’t easy.
Our pasts collide with the present.
And the only man who can save me is the one I shouldn’t want.
Only Mine is a roommates to lovers, small town romance and is a repackaged boxed set from the Archer & Everleigh duet in the Lawton Ridge duet series. There's no cliffhanger and ends in an HEA.
Favorite of the series
Everleigh and Archer are my favorite couple...and probably overall characters...of the series! I knew going in, after reading the previous books, that Everleigh was loud, naughty, funny and giving. She's a firecracker and Archer has better watch his back.
Fresh out of prison after taking the fall for a loved one, Archer needs a fresh start and a place to stay. Coming to work for friend Tyler, and living with his off-limits sister, Everleigh, might not be his wisest move at first, but it quickly becomes the best idea ever.
While agreeing to be only friends and roommates, their chemistry lights up every page. Their slow burn relationship...because you know it will ignite at some point...was filled with understanding, laughter and fun.
And the mystery and danger surrounding them was wonderfully written. At times, even I was unsure of what was going on (but I picked up on it along the way). The pacing of Only Mine was great, and at times I forgot it was previously released as a duet. It was more cohesive than the earlier books, imho, which made the story flow smoother for this reader. I enjoyed the cast of secondary characters coming back and being intertwined again, but the addition of Everleigh's friend and co-worker, Lexi, brought a new and hilarious vibe to the store.
I cannot say enough about this pairing and this book. Only Mine gets 5 big stars from me.
