BOOK REVIEW: Mine by Kim Linwood


He stole my heart. I'll steal everything else.

Hunter Campbell is ridiculously wealthy, totally full of himself, and completely, deliciously lickable. It's no wonder women are lining up at the chance to win his heart.

But not me, I'm not here for his love. I'm here for his whole freakin' island.

See, I grew up in paradise, right up until his family ripped it away from us. Now I'm stuck with nothing, while my playboy stepbrother lives the life that was supposed to be mine.

And I want it back.

All I have to do is keep my hands off his chiseled, inked-up body long enough to sneak back into his life, find the proof I need to reclaim my birthright, and get away before he catches on.


Except my plan seemed a lot easier before he kissed me. Not to mention the mud-wrestling. Oh, and the skydiving. Did I mention skinny dipping?

Things got complicated, okay?

~Book Review~
4.5 Stars

Liz Bissette has a plan to be on a reality TV show. But it’s not because she wants to win the good looking bachelor, who just happens to be her former step-brother. No, she wants the private island he’s living on. Once part of her own inheritance, it now belongs to Hunter Campbell after his father took it from her mother in their divorce.

Meanwhile, Hunter Campbell is none too thrilled about having a handful of gold digging bachelorettes overrun his island, vying for his attention. That is until he sees a familiar face.
“‘I can play the game if you want, but you’ve already pretty much signed up to fuck me, so I don’t see the point.’”
This is a cute and sexy light-hearted adventure romance. There are some twists that add a touch of suspense and while there is your typical reality show challenges and drama, it was never over the top. Trust me when I say that I don’t watch this type of show on real television; but it was a delight to read about with the way things played out between Liz and Hunter, and I would definitely watch them on TV! Hollywood, take note ;-) This story captures the true romance above and beyond the drama, which was pleasingly pretty minimal.

Hunter has that bad boy edge, but inside he’s really a good guy. I was rooting for him and Liz and watching them rekindle their flame was fun and swoon worthy. Set on a private island in the Caribbean, there are a lot of neat touches with the scenery that made the story extra fun. I don’t want to spoil them by pointing them out, but they are cool and made Liz and Hunter’s relationship seem extra special.

Told via Liz and Hunter’s alternating first person POV, Mine is a stand alone with an adorable ending and epilogue. I love when authors give readers the future ;-)
