Title: FINALLY MINE
Author: Anne Hansen
Age group: New Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover designer: Anne Hansen
Organized by: WordSmith Publicity


An incredible stroke of luck lands Vin Moretti a plea bargain—he spends his summer slaving at a country club instead of rotting in a jail cell. He plans to keep his head down and avoid the trust fund brats.

He never expects to fall for a gorgeous, amazing girl way out of his league.

When Keira McCabe falls in love with Vin Moretti, it’s head-over-heels, crazy, incredible love. She’s sure nothing can ruin what they have…but she has no idea how far Vin will go to protect her from the one thing he’s most afraid of: himself.

Summer ends, and Keira returns to the sprawling suburbs where she belongs, while Vin slinks back to the wrong side of the tracks and his old trouble-making ways. They promise to make long-distance love work.

It’s just dumb luck that her father’s unexpected demotion moves Keira smack in Vin’s gritty neck of the woods. Vin realizes he’ll need do whatever it takes to keep Keira safe—even if it means shutting the person he loves the most out of his dangerous life completely.

When Vin turns his back on Keira at her lowest moment, it finally hits her: she was never going to be anything more than his dirty little secret. Her life as she knows it has been torn to shreds, but she’s determined to make the best of it…with or without the guy she gave her heart to over the summer.

Vin starts to have second thoughts about his decision when he realizes how empty life is without Keira around. The problem is, Keira’s learned her lesson, and she isn’t about to be used again.

Vin realizes he’s going to have to pull out all the stops and turn his life around if he wants to make Keira finally his.

Erin's Take:
I think most of us can freely admit that the average romance novel follows one of a few basic progressions. Either the couple is just meeting and they gradually fall in lust/love, or they have a past together and they’re rekindling an old flame, or it’s one of those tension-filled storylines where they deny liking each other and they have a love/hate relationship until the sexual tension makes them cave. And I’m okay with that, I like the dynamics for any one of these. But I admit I’ve always been curious about the idea of a book couple being together from the start. Would the thrill be gone? Would the chemistry remain through the whole book? How do you add drama to keep it interesting? I’d like to thank author Anne Hansen for answering all of my questions with a resounding “Vin Moretti”!!

When we first meet Vin and Keira, they are together for the summer while he works off his punishment for joyriding. She was from a completely different world, but among the rich and bratty at the country club Vin didn’t have to worry about the crappy situation at home. He let the side of him he kept hidden come to the surface just for Keira, showing her the sweet and tender guy that wanted a chance. I loved these two together for that brief moment, they were living in their own little happy bubble and neither of them wanted to let go. Reality is a bitch, though, and they both got slapped with it…hard. Keira went from having everything to moving into Vin’s run-down neck of the woods, and it wasn’t what either of them expected. She couldn’t believe her luck ending up at the same school as the guy she fell hard for, and he couldn’t face her seeing what his world was really like. Yes, and at this point I said “ooooh, so THAT’S how this is going to keep me sucked in until the very end!”, because I couldn’t get enough of the angst and tension between these two as they fought their way through some serious challenges!

Vin’s reaction to seeing Keira in the one place he never wanted her to see was heartbreaking. His knee-jerk reaction is to push her away, and it hurts them both. But it was his defense mechanism, and it was ultimately to protect her from being brought down to his level. Vin had a lot of self-loathing when it came to his worth for Keira. There’s no denying Vin’s choices were questionable, but I sympathized with him because he had the best of intentions behind his actions. Thankfully Keira saw the same thing, and the bitter angst between them over Vin’s behavior made for some great sexual tension!

I really enjoyed the fact that this wasn’t a completely predictable plot with characters that fit into a perfect mold for their personalities. Both Vin and Keira had sides to them that had them meeting in the middle, neither extreme being too much for them to overcome. They worked through roadblocks together, whether it was simple high school drama or grown-up problems that spelled real trouble. Readers will fall hard for Vin’s charm despite his flaws, and Keira wins you over easily with her feisty attitude and strength. I loved their journey and look forward to other romance fans getting a chance to dive in!

Quotes:
~Vin is sweet and hard, gentle and tough all at once. And it thrills me that he’s mine. ~Loc 109

~She wasn’t all over me because of some bad-boy fetish or because she wanted to be arm candy for Eastside’s resident badass. For the first time in my life, someone looked at me and saw…me. ~Loc 163

~I want her to leave me because I’m scared shitless that I’ll never be the man she sees when she looks at me with all that love and trust in her eyes. My biggest fear is failing her, and I can’t see any way to prevent that from happening. ~Loc 3001

Anne Hansen is a die-hard romantic who loves fast cars, unsung heroes, and those crazy, funny conversations that make you laugh so hard, you end up in tears with stomach cramps. She likes to travel and has been all kinds of cool places--like Knoebels Theme Park, the biggest Paul Bunyan statue in Minnesota, and Paris. She loves listening to indie music, sitting around the campfire with her awesome family, and obsessively flipping through celebrity Instagram accounts (don't judge). But, most of all, she loves reading books and writing them, and she's excited to share her greatest passion with other book lovers!
