Trevor Mayson had his life planned out - make the family business successful and play the field for a few more years before eventually settling down. Then he sees her. Liz Hayes was beautiful, shy and everything that he could ever want...but she didn't fit into his plans. After Trevor painfully rejects her, Liz finally starts to move on, but Trevor is finding it difficult to truly let her go. It seems the more he tries to stay away, the more intense his feelings for her become. Like a stretched rubber band, he can only take so much before snapping.
Liz Hayes is done waiting for Trevor and isn't interested in getting her heart broken by him again, but Trevor is making it difficult for her to forget him when he shoves his way back into her life.
Can Trevor prove to her that he is worth falling in love with again, and is he ready to change his life plan to let her into his heart?
Continuing with my obsessions with Aurora Rose Reynolds’ books, I picked up Until Trevor, the second book in Reynold’s Until series. After getting hints at the romance in this book from book one, Until November, I was pretty excited to read this one. Unfortunately, I had some real issues with this one, and it’s one of my least favorites of all Reynolds’ books.
Until Trevor is about Trevor Mayson and Liz Hayes. Liz and Trevor had been flitting about each other for a bit before this book actually started. When they finally got together, there is a misunderstanding (a rather stupid one) and Trevor freaks out and stops hanging out with Liz. Liz is understandable upset because they had developed a friendship and that’s gone too. And then her brother gets into some trouble and Liz needs money. In desperation, she starts working at a strip club. When Trevor discovers this he freaks and then they, of course, get together.
Honestly, my main struggle with this book was Trevor himself. Going into a Aurora Rose Reynolds book, I was expecting Trevor to be alpha, and super possessive and over-protective of Liz, which was certainly the case. But he came off as a jerk so often that I had a hard time rooting for him. Sometimes he was okay, but I just never loved him.
Liz was an okay heroine. I thought I would identify with her more than I did, because in book one, Until November, she came off as shy. But she didn’t seem to be the same person as in book one. She took Trevor back more quickly than I would have too. Liz just doesn’t stand out as a memorable heroine.
The romance was just so-so. I clearly didn’t love the heroine and hero, so that didn’t help me love the couple together. I also had some major issues with how Trevor told Liz that she was too wonderful a woman to not have children.View Spoiler » That she needed to give her love to her own children. As the reader, we realize that Liz does want children but she has concerns. But Trevor doesn’t realize this, and this assumption that she should have children was annoying and aggravating. « Hide Spoiler
Still, even with my complaints, I had a hard time putting this book down. It was addicting. I did a ton of eye-rolling, but it was a quick, easy read, which is what I needed at the time. If you like books with over the top alpha heroes, and heroines who love them, you might enjoy Until Trevor. But this series is definitely not for every one.
