I saw her first.
Blonde. Gorgeous. Feisty.
I was smitten. 

But it didn’t matter because she chose him and he was my best friend and roommate. I’d never be able to compete with that, so I pushed her away instead. It was easy when she lived hours away, and I didn’t have to see her every day, but then she moved in with us. 
Now, I’m screwed.

To her singing in the shower every morning, dancing in the kitchen while she makes coffee, and doing yoga in our living room, I can’t stop thinking about her in all the wrong ways. She’s not mine and never will be, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to push her against a wall and claim her mouth.

She’s constantly on me for making messes, bringing chicks home every weekend, and being a smartass when their PDA gets on my nerves. Considering neither of them know how I feel, it’s not fair for the way I act toward them. I should move out so I can get over her for good; however, the selfish part of me can’t let go. 

But then the unthinkable happens... 
When my best friend dies in a motorcycle accident, the two of us are left to grieve our loss together. Instead of pushing her away, I pull her closer. 

Just as we come to terms with our new reality, she finds out she’s pregnant with his baby. 
And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my life...

My Review:
I loved this one!  It had a lot of angst, both on the part of Hunter and his love for Lennon that he couldn't share because she was his best friend's girl, as well as when that same best friend dies, leaving both of them mourning but only having each other.  The pregnancy was obviously something we knew would come about from the synopsis, but I really like the way it was handled in this story.  While there would of course be joy from having a part of your love live on in a child, there was also the sorrow of not being able to share it with him, and then also for Hunter to know that reminder would always be there for Lennon. And then, the end!  No spoilers, but let me say that I did not see that coming!  And also, I NEED book 2 NOW!

Book 2 in the Hunter and Lennon Duet Synopsis coming soon!
