For as long as I can remember, I’ve been the dark to my sister’s light—the awkward loner to her social butterfly. Growing up, she had it all: our parent’s unyielding approval, perfect grades, a permanent spot at the popular table, and the attention of the hottest guy ever—Duke Kincaid.
After eighteen years of living in her shadow, I couldn’t wait to escape—to finally be my own person. Yet here I am, I’m back in my hometown, once again in Valorie’s shadow. Only now, it’s eternal.
I had life all planned out: join the force, marry Valorie Parsons, and start a family of our own. I have the job, but the girl and all my dreams died before my very eyes.
Finally ready to move on, I agree to a blind date. Imagine my shock when I arrive and find, Valorie’s twin sister, waiting across the table from me. Mallory should be a reminder of all that I’ve lost, but instead she feels like my redemption . . . like maybe life’s giving me a second chance.
But, how can I be enough for her when I’ve already given her sister the best of me?
BEST OF ME by LK Farlow
Release Date: September 5, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Once I read the blurb for Best of Me by L.K. Farlow, I knew I wanted to read it! A forbidden romance with a twist and all the best kind of feels. Mallory has always felt like nothing compared to her beautiful and loved twin sister. Valorie had it all, their parent’s love, was popular and was well-liked and had the hottest guy in school, Duke Kincaid. But tragedy changed all that.
Now years later, Mallory is back in town. But this time she is stronger and more determined. She just wants to lead her life. All Duke ever wanted was to marry his first love, work the job he loved and have all his dreams come true. Now he alone, desolate and not ready to face the sister of the woman he once loved. But even Duke cannot deny their chemistry and connection, but how can he even look at Mallory as anything else, when he has already give the best of himself away?
Best of Me by L.K. Farlow was emotional, heartwarming and captivating. Both Duke and Mallory had so much hurt and loss in their life, but yet together, they could find solace and maybe more. But was it wrong? I devoured this story. The characters will captivate you as you follow their journey!
Add to Goodreads:
Nate follows my line of sight and smirks. He may be my best friend and partner, but damn if I don’t want to knock that smarmy-ass look right off his face. And when he opens his mouth, the feeling intensifies. “It’s okay to—”
I shoot him a withering glare before stomping off toward Mallory.
I don’t stop until I’m close enough to feel the heat of her body. She has to tilt her head back to see me, and when our eyes meet, my name topples from her lips on a breathy sigh. “We need to talk.” My tone is all business—my cop voice, as Nate calls it—as I wrap my fingers around her forearm, prepared to drag her along behind me if necessary. Luckily, she comes all too willingly—so why am I still holding on to her?
The feeling of her soft, sun-warmed skin beneath my palm sends little zaps of electricity under my skin, into my muscle. Her nearness has me strung taut like a drawn bow. Here’s to hoping like hell I don’t snap.
Deep down, like really fucking deep, I know I’m acting like a colossal asshole, but much like a prepubescent boy picking on his schoolyard crush, it’s the only way I know how to deal with all of the conflicting feelings she stirs in me.
