Overview

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 . . .

WOW...just wow!! This is really more of a 4.5 star for me. An incredible debut novel for Kennedy Ryan. The basis for this story is a love triangle between Walsh, his best friend Cam, and Kerris. But there is so much more packed into the pages of this story. Each of the characters in this book has a story and you can't wait to find out what happens. I would have given a five star rating but I feel the writing needs just a bit more polish but it will be so exciting to see how this writers work evolves over the course of the series and what is sure to be a very long writing career. If you absolutely have to have your HEA, you won't get it in this book. This story is not complete. It will be continued in the next installment of the series. I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it. I can't wait for the next one.

Kerris and Walsh meet when he returns to his hometown after a long trip abroad. He finally meets th woman his mother has been bragging about. The woman about to marry his best friend. Just one little problem... She is the only woman he has ever thought about forever with. He sees the same feelings mirrored in her eyes. She just cannot past the promise of a future with his best friend. Regardless of his warnings, they marry anyway.  Walsh knows he must stay away. They look at each other and it shows on their faces. Too many people could get hurt. He learns about the business from his father and tries to go on with his life. Nothing dulls the pain. Nothing. Kerris is a woman of her word. She has promised her husband she wants a future with him and she means to be faithful. They have so much in common from the past. They have scars others would not understand. If only she did not dream of Walsh. Such a heart wrenching story with an open and raw, almost gaping wound. I felt the emotions right down to my soul. It just makes you want to take the characters and smack 'em up side of the head.  ***This ARC copy was free from the publisher and author in exchange for an honest review.

I had the pleasure of reading Be mine Forever not too long ago. I was touched so deeply by the struggles that Jo and Cam had to endure on the way to finding happiness. I knew that story would not be the last Kennedy Ryan book I'd ever read. So when a friend told me I should read When you are Mine I jumped at the chance. What I enjoy most about Ms. Ryan's books is that she does not sugarcoat the heartache, inner struggles or mistakes of her characters. She lays them all out on the table. By exposing the frailties of her characters readers are able to identify with them. Their imperfections make up the decisions they face on the road to who they become. With each book I am becoming more of a fan. Received this book for an honest review.

In Kennedy Ryan's emotional debut novel we are treated to a tale of love and desire, friendship and forbidden attraction. This first part of the Bennett series is the story of Kerris, a woman who has risen above her troubled upbringing to create a satisfying life for herself and the two men who will turn her world upside down - Cam, an artist and the man with whom she shares the bond of a foster parent upbringing and Walsh, Cam's wealthy best friend who sees in Kerris the woman of his dreams - until he finds out that she is the one with whom Cam want to spend the rest of his life. With Cam, Kerris feels safe and content and doesn't regret that her feelings for him don't include sexual attraction. But Walsh sparks in her strong feelings of intense sexual desire that alternately scare her and make her realize that her feelings for Cam will never be the same as what she feels for Walsh. Her choices and the emotional aftermath make up the first book of this serial. Writing with a fluid style that is captivating and emotionally riveting, readers are pulled into the story from the very first page. Each character is portrayed with all their perfections and flaws. Kerris is generous, kind and unassuming but unsure of her ability to attract and keep love. Cam has an artistic temperament. He is devoted to his work and to Kerris but prone to emotional outbursts and carrying pent up anger from his troubled youth. Walsh is a good man, patient and understanding, trying to perform his business tasks and charitable work in a fashion that will please those around him. His attraction to Kerris threatens to ruin his lifelong friendship with Cam yet he is drawn irresistibly to her like a moth to a flame. Their love triangle sizzles with sexual tension and emotional depth, and the choices made propel the story forward. Secondary characters play a key role in the plot as it unfolds, evoking emotional responses from all involved, including the reader. There is laughter and there are tears and the overall story is compelling. The book ends not with a cliffhanger but with the sense that there is much more of the tale left to be told. Readers will be anxious for the next instalment, planned to be released in late 2014. Highly recommended, 5 heart-wrenching stars!
