Title - Until Jax (Until Him #1)
Author - Aurora Rose Reynolds
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.
What I thought
Jax, I love you! Swerve Ellie and come get me! No??..... Okay...... *Sobs heart out*
Aurora Rose Reynolds has done it again! She's written this story that just melts my old steel heart.
Were back with the new generations of Mayson's, and AT LAST its Jax's turn! I have adored this boy since he first said "Daddy are we there yet?" in 'Until Lilly', so I had a lot of hopes for this book and it really didn't disappoint.
Jax met Ellie in Until July, now he's rescued her from the horrid circumstance she was in, he's found himself in the position of discovering his dad and uncles were telling the truth about the infamous "BOOM". Ellie is his boom, but she is understandably cautious. I mean hell, she's been through the mill and back again and she has her daughter Hope to consider.
Like a true Mayson man though, no excuse is good enough so he starts (with a small amount of caution) to build their life together. Of course they argue about it, but hey, he's a Mayson! And obviously being a Mayson, there are exes rearing their ugly heads, but as they say, the path of true love never does run smooth. And its particularly bumpy for this couple.
These two have amazing chemistry together and they are a joy to read, but I think what I loved more was the relationship between Jax and Hope. Oh My Goodness they're just ADORABLE!
" 'Ax' Hope calls from my other side, and I pull my eyes from my sister and hold my breath as hope smiles up at me. 'what's up sweetheart?' I ask softly, still unsure what to do with a three year old girl. 'Can you pit me up so I can see mama?' She asks, and my chest gets tight "
And guess who else we get to catch up with..... Cash & Lilly... YAYYYY (Loved these two) their relationship with Jax is so sweet. Unfortunately someone else who shall remain nameless makes an appearance but thankfully it's brief!
There is plenty more going on in this book besides Ellie & Jax. We get a build to Until June which is out next year. Junes been hanging round with the wrong kinda man. I have NO CLUE who her boom is gonna be, but I am looking forward to it. Harlen, seems to have this super protective streak that I really want to read more about so hopefully he is getting his own book??
And finally for me.... SAGE, oh my word there is this whole thing with a girl names Kim who may or may not have a twin, who may or may not be evil! There was an incident and Sage will not believe her because he doesn't know the full story and he's not interested in hearing it, but then Kim's actually.... well I wont tell you what Kim is, but needless to say, I'm going to need Sage's book ASAP!!!!
"Watching him go, I shake my head, opening the door for my truck then pausing before getting in and looking in his direction. 'Whenever you get your head out of your ass, I'm here' I yell at his back, watching his shoulders sag before I hop into the cab."
