About the Book: Ben’s been in love with Renee from day one. At the same time, she’s kept him at a distance due to reasons only a select few know.
That all ends. Now. Because nothing will stop him from getting what he wants.
There’s no one else for him and there is definitely no one else for her, not as long as there is a breath left in his body. When she tries to date, Ben quickly ends any and all attempts of her being with someone, other than him.
Follow Ben and Renee through some serious alpha male episodes paired with a side of light hearted humor and steamy encounters, hot enough to make your Kindle fog over!

My Review: Another new-to-me author, and another success story! I'm incredibly grateful that I get to be part of blog tours like this, and discover new and awesome authors. Unfortunately, there's just so much out there that entertaining reads like this could fall through the cracks. While this book is part of a series, I'd say it can totally be read as a stand-alone, though I'm sure you, like myself, will want to check out Anne and Jim's story since they are hilarious secondary characters in this book.
I knew going into this story that it was a novella, which means short and sweet. I just really wish it could have been a little longer - I wanted more of that delicious build up between Ben and Renee. Their attraction and compatibility was obvious, and well-written, but I wanted more of that slow burn. Not that their coming together wasn't hot - I think my kindle was smoking at one point - but I just wanted more. Or rather, I needed more. I'm super hopeful that we will see more of Renee and Ben in When We Become One, Marissa's story. Since Anne and Jim played a pivotal role in When I Become Yours, there is hope that I can see Ben and Renee again soon.
Cover Lovin': *Fans self* What a cover! Definitely caught my eye!
Recommendation: I didn't read the first book in the series, but I got through this book just fine. That said, I'm a little sad I missed out on some of Renee and Ben's backstory, so I'd love to check out book one!
Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE (3.5/5) stars! This was a fun, fast read. I wasn't ready to let Ben and Renee go, so I'm sure I will find myself re-reading this in the near future.
