MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
Ellie Anthony isn’t looking for love. She isn’t even looking for a man, but when Jax Mayson insists on keeping her and her daughter safe, she’s left with no choice but to trust him. Now she just hopes she doesn’t get hurt when she falls hard for a guy who’s known for breaking hearts.
Jax Mayson knows that Ellie is his BOOM the moment he sees her. When he finds out she has a daughter, he realizes he wants a family, and he will do whatever is necessary to keep both of his girls safe, even if that means facing the demons from his past.
REVIEWERS NOTE: Until Jax is the first book in the Until Him series and is a New Adult, Contemporary Romance written by Aurora Rose Reynolds. I was gifted a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review through The Rock Stars of Romance.
3.5 “You are mine!” Stars!
Quick, Fun and Sexy! The Perfect Afternoon Read!
The “boom” strikes again! And I totally love me some Jax! Yowza!
As much as I enjoyed this book, I will say it’s not my favorite by this author. The beginning was a little confusing and the ending felt a little rushed, but it kept me reading and interested the whole way through.
I admit I haven’t read all the books in all of the Until series’ yet, but considering this was the first book in this series line, I thought I’d be safe picking it up. But I was confused right from the start. It’s like this one was missing the first two chapters. After chapter one, I decided to see if I had missed that maybe this was a continuation from another book, and after looking, I saw in the reviews that Jax and Ellie’s actual first meet was in the end of Until July. However, even with the beginning confusion, I quickly got on track as this author sucks you right in with a fantastic hero and an amazing heroine and her adorable daughter.
There’s not a whole lot of depth in this one and that was perfect. It’s not too angsty or too emotional but just the right amount of entertainment and “hero saves the day with a damsel in distress” to keep me reading through one sitting.
Ellie is running for her life, literally, when she bumps into Jax at the end of Until July. This book starts with her in the hospital and continues on to a wonderful love story between an innocent girl who's just trying to be a good mom and a hot-boy Alpha who just wants to keep her and her daughter safe. Jax is HOT! He’s sexy, he was fun to read and he’s Ah-Maze-Ing! Did I mention he’s HOT? Ellie was a great character too. She’s a little gun shy because she didn’t have the best upbringing or a good family to lean on in bad times and she’s been betrayed in the worse way by the one person who should have loved her unconditionally. But I loved her strength and her courage.
Jax and Ellie’s chemistry was so totally there. They had it going on from the start and the tension, both sexual and emotional, was written so well. I do wish we had got more alone time with the mains. There were a lot of side characters in this one, which trust me, was a lot of fun to read, especially getting glimpses into the lives of past characters from previous stories. And as much as I loved those, I wish we’d gotten more one on one time with Jax and Ellie. Hope, Ellie’s daughter, was a wonderful, beautiful, adorable character and the way Jax fawns over her and the way she wraps herself around his heart almost from the beginning, is writing at it’s best. I loved their interactions. I swooned, I laughed and my heart skipped beats. I loved them.
The Wrap Up:
This was a great read and I’m glad I picked it up. I loved Ellie’s story and like all the men this author writes, Jax was the perfect alpha male. If you’re looking for something that’s not to dark, not too deep and has just the right amount of push-pull, I’d definitely suggest this one. And, there were some great teasers written into the story for upcoming books/characters and I found myself getting excited thinking about what was to come. We definitely have some fun and angsty love connections to look forward to.
Suggestion - Read Until July first for the introduction and whole story of Ellie and Jax.
