Title: WHEN YOU BECAME MINE
Author: A.S. Teague
About When You Became Mine:
I was twelve years old when I fell in love with Piper Kelley. Even at the age of eight, she was everything I wasn’t: brave, bold, and beautiful.
The night of my college graduation party, I finally made my move, but Piper only had eyes for one man—my younger brother.
With a battered heart, I left for Vegas, determined to put her behind me. But eight years later, fate proved once again that it had never cared about my plans.
Now, I’m back home, and determined not to fall into the same trap I spent the majority of my adolescence trying to escape.
But when Piper finds herself at the risk of losing her medical license, I realize just how far I’m willing to go to protect her.
I was twelve when Piper Kelley became mine.
It’s time I let her know.

Lawson Reed has been in love with Piper Kelley since he was 12 years old. Being 4 years older than her, he protected her and watched over her from afar. The whole time they were kids, Piper was in love with someone else – Lawson’s brother, Hampton. The problem – Hampton is gay.
It seems that everyone knew how Lawson felt about Piper, except Piper. She continued to be best friends with Hampton, especially after a tragedy they both suffer in their late teens, which leads Piper to stay closer to home to take care of Hampton.
Lawson agrees to have Piper move in with him after Hampton elopes. To say they don’t get along would be an understatement. Piper feels that Law hates her – she’s so naive.
I absolutely loved Lawson. He was such a sweet character and took such amazing care of Piper, even when he did not realize it. Piper herself was a strong character; she has suffered a devastating blow in her life, discovered the boy she was in love with was gay and came out stronger for it. Once she finally came to terms with how she felt about Lawson, it was a beautiful love story.
Lawson and Hampton’s sister, Georgia, was really quite hilarious. I would love to see her get her own story. I enjoyed Lawson’s co-workers as well.
One thing I didn’t love with the way Hampton treated Piper. He walked all over her, and she let him. Once she let herself fall for Lawson, she became more dependent on him and not on Hampton, which was good to see.
The “drama” was a bit predictable, but added something interesting to the story.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story and I would recommend it.
