Mean girl. Goddess. Bitch. Supermodel Sofie Baston has earned those labels . . . yet they don't scratch the surface of who she really is. Before she can follow her own dreams, Sophie must do her daughterly duty and reel in a "fish" for her father's business-a tall, brown-eyed entrepreneur who immediately hooks her. He's a big guy with an even bigger heart . . . but will that heart be open to Sofie once her darkest secret is revealed?
To Trevor Bishop, Sofie is a beautiful mystery he would gladly spend his life solving. He figures her tough demeanor is armor against a world that's hurt her too many times. Then Sofie's deepest wounds are reopened by the powerful, ruthless man who made them. When she musters the courage to take him down, her world shatters. Now Trevor is determined to help Sofie pick up the pieces so they can build a future together. The challenge will be convincing his ice princess that it's safe to melt in his arms.
I have read all of Kennedy’s books, and I must say, Until I’m Yours is my favorite. Kennedy has a way with words and making you fall for characters that may not be easiest to fall for.
Until I’m Yours can definitely be read as a standalone but Sofie has made many of appearances in the series. Sofie is a world-famous supermodel who lives a very public life in the limelight. She has had her ups and downs but because she is a celebrity, almost everyone knows about her life. She’s also very honest (okay-more like blunt), self-confident, and seems to be trying to find herself. Trevor is an all-around American boy. He’s also a very driven and compassionate about philanthropy. When these two meet, sparks fly and right away they can’t get enough of each other. Trevor does have his work cut out for him with bringing down Sofie’s walls. He knows that he’s found what’s been missing in his life and will stop at nothing to have her. Thankfully, Sofie realizes that Trevor actually sees her for who she is, not some vapid supermodel that everyone thinks she is.
I really enjoyed how this story played out. I knew it was going to take someone very special to make Sofie fall in love with them. Trevor was all sorts of swoon and really believed in the truer good of people. I loved how he stood up for Sofie and was always her biggest supporter. The relationship between Sofie and Trevor was a little-angst driven but so enjoyable! And I swear their chemistry was palpable-like seriously HOT!
Kennedy writes books that are filled with such emotion and brings awareness to many social topics that are usually shied away from. This is one of the things that I truly admire about Kennedy amongst other things. This book was all about facing your past and fighting for yourself. Her writing is also amazing and she seems to hone in on her craft with each new book.
Until I’m Yours was a fabulous book to end the Bennett series with. If you haven’t checked out this series-now’s a good time to start!
