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.
Excerpt: Until Jax
“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. Fuck. “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.

3.5 stars – Worth a Readers Time
I have to admit that Ms. Reynolds is a new other for me. I’ll go ahead and tell you that I enjoyed this book, but I would not recommend it as a place to start reading if you are new to this author. The addition of “Until Him #1” after the title is misleading. I thought this was the beginning of a series, but discovered from page one that wasn’t the case. It seems like to get the full effect of this book, you at least need to have read Until July (Until Her #1) if not the entire series starting with Until November. Now that my disclaimer is out of the way. I loved Jax and Ellie! I honestly have no idea how these two met, but Jax appears to be almost instantly attracted to Ellie and determined to help her and keep her safe. She is just as determined to try and stand on her own two feet. It was nice to see Ellie not behave like a victim even though it seemed like she had every excuse to and I appreciated that she was grateful to Jax without wanting to take advantage. Jax was a wonderful, studly, Alpha hero that it was impossible not to like. He treated Ellie like a queen from day 1, but he also seemed to be able to give her the freedom and space she needed. I also loved how his family just instantly welcomed her and took care of her too. There were a couple of places where I struggled with this book, but I really think a lot of it had to do with lack of information that is probably contained in other books of the Until series. If you are familiar with the other books, you will most likely love Until Jax.
