Title: WHEN YOU BECAME MINE
Author: A.S. Teague
About When You Became Mine:
I was twelve years old when I fell in love with Piper Kelley. Even at the age of eight, she was everything I wasn’t: brave, bold, and beautiful.
The night of my college graduation party, I finally made my move, but Piper only had eyes for one man—my younger brother.
With a battered heart, I left for Vegas, determined to put her behind me. But eight years later, fate proved once again that it had never cared about my plans.
Now, I’m back home, and determined not to fall into the same trap I spent the majority of my adolescence trying to escape.
But when Piper finds herself at the risk of losing her medical license, I realize just how far I’m willing to go to protect her.
I was twelve when Piper Kelley became mine.
It’s time I let her know.
Anyone who knows me knows I love a good enemies/friends to lovers book, and this one has to be one of my favorites!!!
Piper and her twin brother, Jack, grew up with Lawson, Hampton, and Georgia. As a little girl, Piper gave her heart to Hampton. He was her hero, always taking care of her and protecting her, at least that is what she thought! Lawson was Hampton’s older brother. In reality, he was the protector, only wanting happiness for Piper. However, she always saw him as judgmental, never realizing how deep his feelings were for her. After college,, he leaves, hoping never to return and have to face his feelings for Piper. Fast forward years later, and fate brings him back home and right back into Piper’s orbit and closer to her than he ever imagined. Oh wow, what a story these two have to share with us. It’s a tale full of love, emotion, drama, and a subplot involving some suspense. What you get is a great book, one that is hard to put down.
Lawson and Piper are very well-developed and complex characters. There was a whole other level to Lawson I didn’t know about. I discovered some of those at the same time Piper did. It’s funny how you think you know someone, but you have no clue. Once Piper’s eyes are opened to Lawson, she begins realizing what a treasure she had in front of her the whole time. I really enjoyed seeing these two discover each other in a completely different light.
The book does have some lighter moments, especially the banter between Piper and Lawson. The addition of Hampton and Georgia just made it funnier. While there were parts I really laughed at, there were also some really sad moments dealing with loss and how to move forward, especially when you harbor guilt.
I have to commend Teague for the addition of the subplot involving some suspense. In some books, that may be seen as an afterthought and not connected to the book as a whole. That was not the case in this book. It factored into the plot as a whole and added another level to the book.
When You Became Mine was a book that had it all….love, romance, spice, laughter, and most importantly, second chances. It made me stop, think, and really appreciate those I love! If you are looking for a book to capture both your heart and your mind, you can’t go wrong with this one!
