Can a secret crush . . .
Jo Walsh has loved Cameron Mitchell for as long as she can remember. Whether front and center in her life or on the periphery, the tall, brooding artist has made his presence seductively and irresistibly known. But whenever they start to get close, Cam pulls away. Jo’s tired of keeping her feelings in a box Cam is afraid to open. If he wants her, he’ll have to prove it. And if he doesn’t, Jo will need to know the real reason why . . .
. . . become the love of a lifetime?
How do you walk away from your soul mate? Cam wishes he knew. No matter how far he runs from Jo, he can’t resist looking back at the silver eyes that seem to see right through him. But as well as Jo thinks she understands Cam, the dark truth about his past is something she shouldn’t have to handle. Cam’s sure that setting Jo free is the right thing to do. Too bad his heart has other ideas . . .
I have been converted!! I will now #ComeForCam anytime, anywhere ;) Ok….let me back up a second. Be Mine Forever by Kennedy Ryan is book 3 in the Bennett Family Series. Although it can be read as a stand alone, why would you do something so silly?? Please….read When You Are Mine and Loving You Always first, this way you will truly have an understanding of the whole story :) That being said….let’s get to the good stuff.
One sitting….that is all it took for me to devour this book. I am a huge fan of this series and its characters, yet I was skeptical going into book 3, Cam’s story. It is no secret that I have not been a fan of his, but as I just mentioned, I have been converted.
Cam, oh Cam how you have changed me. It took awhile, yes. Even through some of this book I still did NOT care for you and I did NOT see what Jo saw in you. How she pined for you all those years. You were rude, dark & brooding, and downright nasty at times. Well now I see why, I understand all that angst, running, hiding….everything. Oh I’m not going to give anything away here…you need to find out for yourself just how I made a 180 on the CamTrain.
I can say that Jo is the best thing to ever happen to him. She is so strong, independent and funny. She tells it like it is with him once and for all….she wants him and wow…just WOW when she finally lets him know. My heart ached for her knowing that Cam was still hiding his past, I couldn’t imagine what she was feeling.
“He knew her as well as she knew him, and yet he carried so much mystery. His eyes harbored it. And she knew, even though he hadn’t shared yet, that his dreams kept his secrets.”
Cam and Jo being together was so natural. They had been best friends, family even for years and years. They know each other inside out and when they finally succumb to their desires….get a fan because it, is, H-O-T!
“He wanted to crawl into every hole, wanted to lick every crevice, wanted to claim every inch of this perfect body. To erase every trace of any man who had the nerve to come before him. He was fucking feral about this woman and she had no idea.”
They share good times and bad, they share memories and fears. The way that Kennedy Ryan weaves this story is brilliant. Her writing is beautiful and this story is now my favorite of the three. This series has not let me down in any way! All that’s left to say is… I’ll be your closet Cam xoxo
