(Really a 2.5)

Have you ever gone into a book with certain expectations only to be served up a whole bunch of something else? Sometimes that can make a book an unexpected treasure and sometimes it can go horribly wrong. I went into When You Are Mine by Kennedy Ryan with the expectation of a contemporary romance and a dim knowledge that there was a love triangle.

First I want to discuss what worked for me because there was a lot that did work for me. I really liked all of the action Ryan was able to pack into When You Are Mine. We run the emotional gamut with the Walsh/Bennetts. We get to experience all manner of things with them; grief, love, happiness, fear, need, want determination, and stubbornness in spades. I enjoyed all of that. I liked the characters and even loved some of them. The settings really added to the story as well. They varied as far apart as a quaint, quiet, idyllic cottage to New York City. Plus, the Walshs have a foundation that takes care of a lot of charitable duties that include scholarships, orphanages, and just in general being really awesome people. We got to experience so much in one book and that aspect of the book truly saved this from being a DNF (which would have been my first ever).

The we come to what didn’t work for me. My expectations as a romance reader are almost more restrictive. I expect for a love triangle to settle to a couple. I expect loyalty, a solid decision, love, closure and I just didn’t get that from When You Are Mine. The constant back and forth between characters almost drove me over the edge. I was pretty frustrated and kept hoping for some solid closure. Nope. I’m sure about what I wanted to happen, I’m just not sure how I expected it to happen.

SPOILERS!!!

Romantic…I was caught up in the “sparks” in the opening pages and kept on reading… and reading! Basically, I did not want to put the book down.

The raw emotion that was brought out in the beginning while Iyani’s story was told added such depth to the character of Walsh. We find throughout the story that he is not just a pretty, rich boy. He is the complete package. I know….hard to find these days…so we get it in our romance novels :)

I was racked with emotion as Kerris bared her soul to Walsh with the story of her childhood. As Walsh put it so well, no child should have to endure that type of atrocity and it is NOT the child’s fault, but the person inflicting the pain. No child asks to be treated badly. Okay….I paraphrased his sentiments, but you get the point. And then later on when Kerris is the only individual Walsh can confide in regarding the horrors of the kidnapping.

I do wonder though…halfway through the book, when an inebriated Walsh comes home from Cam’s bachelor party and he is musing…

”How had he gotten here? Not just at the guesthouse, but here? In love with his best friend’s fiancée, soon-to-be wife?”

I ask myself how believable is it that he is truly in love with Kerris when the interactions between them have been limited to one intense, intimate moment in the hospital when they both learned of Iyani’s passing and shared a kiss and a dance and discussion at Walsh’s mother’s birthday party?

I was disappointed in Walsh for letting himself wallow for a year after Cam’s wedding. Living with Sofie, partying hard, working hard, not staying true to his inner good self.

As a firm believer in soul mates my love for whirlwind romances runs pretty deep. While I understand not all love happens at first sight I hold on to the notion of its existence. I'm a hopeless romantic, you see, in love with being in love. For those reasons this book proved difficult for me to rate and review.

Before you go any further, let me be up front - this book contains a love triangle of the most angst-filled proportions. If you're not into love triangles this definitely isn't for you. I'm not usually a fan, either but the blurb intrigued me.

In When You Are Mine, a new adult romance, love does not come easy even after it's at first sight. Two men. One girl. Understated chaos in the heart ensues. Walsh Bennett - a consummate alpha - handsome, refined, rich - sees Kerris Moreton, his best friends girl, before he knows with whom she belongs. An instant attraction stuns both Walsh and Kerris into oblivion. Cameron Mitchell, best friend/boyfriend, is the constant, safe, shining light Kerris never had in her life.

Told from both Walsh and Kerris's points of view, When You Are Mine takes on a push/pull journey between two people who can't deny the intimacy between them. So far, so good. I'm okay with a love triangle, up to a point. Then the heroine has to go and make life changing decisions based on assumptions without ever bothering to learn the validity of these assumptions. Huge deduct for the heroine from me. A love triangle can only go so far for me and there needs to be some concrete reasoning behind the heroine's actions. Kerris disappointed me because up until a certain point I totally sympathized with her.

The writing in this book engages the reader. Even when I was over Kerris I felt myself still needing to know what happens.
