Genres: Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance
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.
Meet Jax and Ellie in this instalove, alpha romance!
Until Jax is LIVE! #Boom
I was so excited for Until Jax! We first met Jax Mayson as a child in his parents’ story, Until Lily as well as in the stories of his uncles, and I loved him as a child. I knew that I would adore him even more as an adult. Jax is very much like all of the Mayson men and women for that matter when he finds his Boom (your boom is where you find that other person who completes you in every way!)
Ellie was sold into human trafficking by her mother none the less however she managed to escape and is rescued by Jax. This actually happened in Until July and is the first time that Ellie meets Jax. Until Jax begins with Ellie being in the hospital and her telling Jax that she needs to go to her daughter. Jax being the great guy that he is and knowing how much he wants Ellie tells her that he will take her and then bring her and her daughter back.
Ellie is trying to support herself and her daughter, Hope, and honestly give them a better life. Not to mention putting distance between her family and herself. She falls for Jax pretty quickly but is just stubborn enough to attempt to put some distance between them. However Jax is even more stubborn and knows what he wants which is Ellie and Hope.
Jax is determined to protect Ellie and Hope and I love the way he treats Hope like she is his own daughter from the very first moment. In fact when she calls him “Daddy Ax” I almost cried. I also really enjoyed that Jax’s biological mother redeemed herself in this book because I really hated that woman! When Jax and Ellie do come together it is HOT and steamy! While each book can be read on its own I would highly recommend reading at least Until July because you get a little more information. However the original Until series is simply awesome and as I said Jax as a child is great. When all of his uncles find their Booms Jax is a little upset. After all there are starting to be more girls than boys! Aurora Rose Reynolds created a spin-off like no other author. Each book brings you new characters and catches you on old favorites while at the same time creating a story that is touching and moving.
“Thank you again for taking me.” Pulling my eyes from the road for a brief moment, I look at Ellie. Her head is resting against the window, her legs pulled up onto the seat, tucked near her ass, and her arms are wrapped tight around them. One thing I’ve noticed about her over the last few hours is she’s always wrapping her arms around herself or tucking her body into a tight ball. It’s like she’s forcing herself to stay together.
“I told you I got you, baby,” I say gently, wanting more than anything to take her hand in mine, but every time I touch her, she freezes up like she’s waiting for me to strike out at her, and I would be lying if I said that didn’t piss me the fuck off. It does; it feels like a slap in the face every time it happens.
“I know,” she whispers, and the tears I hear in her voice cause a sharp pain in my chest.
“This is the turnoff.” Her feet go to the floorboard and her hands to the dash as she sits up taller, moving her face closer to the windshield. We drive up a long dirt driveway with forest and the occasional broken down car on each side. When we make it to the top of the hill, a singlewide trailer comes into view, with junk cars and garbage piled up out front.
As soon as I come to a stop, she opens her door and hops out before I can tell her to keep her little ass in the cab. I don’t even know how I’m going to deal with the range of emotions that have settled over me since seeing her for the first time.
“Fucking Boom,” I mutter, getting out behind her and doubling my steps until I’m able to reach her side, where I wrap my hand around her waist and pull her closer to me. She’s so fucking tiny that the top of her dark head sits right at my chest. So fragile, from her too soft skin to her petite size. And she’s mine.
