When You Are Mine by Kennedy Ryan

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 . . .

There was so much angst and sexual tension in this novel; I couldn’t help but to be glued to the pages. It’s definitely one of those let the phone ring off the hook until it’s finished books, although readers be warned, this book continues in the next.
Kerris and Cam share a bond because they both grew up in foster homes. While sexual attraction isn’t part of their relationship, she feels safe with Cam. With Walsh, Kerris has everything she doesn’t with Cam and they find themselves drawn to each other like moths to a flame and the chemistry between the two is undeniable.
Okay, so I’m not going to lie, there were a couple times I wished I was reading from a print copy rather than the Kindle, because the heroine made me want to chuck the book against the wall a few times…or climb in the book and beat her with it.
If love triangles with cheating are not your thing, you may want to skip this one. What drew me to the story was the heart wrenching emotion that poured from the characters. While I might not have always agreed with how things were handled, the depth of the characters drew me in.
I cannot wait until the next installment comes out.

Kennedy Ryan grew up in North Carolina, but loves living in Atlanta with her husband (tall – check, dark – check – handsome – check), and her handful of a son. Though she knew, like writers often do, that she was supposed to tell stories, the road to fulfillment has been paved with “some of everything” jobs that kept her family eating and living indoors. With her degree in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Tar Heels!), she has focused on writing for non-profit organizations and even doing some non-fiction ghost writing. Only in the last few years did she start telling stories again.
 In addition to being a devoted wife and mom, she’s also a passionate advocate for families living with Autism. Her son was diagnosed at the age of two, and she has made it her mission to help as many families as possible find the resources and services they need. 25% of her royalties will go toward her national charitable partner Talk About Curing Autism and Myles-A-Part, her foundation serving Georgia families.
