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.

Until Jax by Aurora Rose Reynolds is definitely my favorite for all of the Until series and the Until Him and Until Her series. I really loved Jax right from the beginning. The minute Jax meets Ellie, he is totally into her. Having just been rescued from some not-nice guys, she’s also attracted to Jax, but more than anything she wants to get back to her daughter, Hope. Jax immediately steps in, and helps Ellie and Hope resettle in Tennessee. Ellie was pretty great, and I loved how she stepped in to raise Hope, who she calls her daughter, but is really her deceased brother’s daughter. She’s a good person, doing the best she can. I loved the little family that Ellie, Hope and Jax made. I was honestly shipping them pretty hard.

That said, this book does have some typical Aurora Rose Reynolds tropes. Jax is totally an alpha, and he can be bossy. He’s not as bad as the other heroes by Reynolds, but it can be a bit much. Still, I definitely think Until Jax is the best of the whole series so far.

Sage Mayson had Kimberly Cullen once, and the memory of that brief encounter has tortured him since the moment he pushed her away. He should have followed his gut, but he didn't, and now he's left watching the woman he wants more than anything from afar.

Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he's the one person she finds herself leaning on. Getting a second chance is something Sage knows is rare. He's not going to squander the one he's been given, and he won't take no for an answer when it comes to making Kim his. But what Sage doesn't know is Kim has a secret that could leave them both devastated and heartbroken.

Until Sage, while not my favorite from this series, is one of the better books in this series, although it has some over the top moments. Sage meets Kimberly when she has car issues. He steps in to help her, and quickly becomes smitten. They have to work through some things (basically, Sage being a jerk, and Kim having a pretty big secret that she procrastinates telling Sage about) but they do. I did like Sage and Kim, although they both do some stupid things (especially Sage). Once they worked things out, I did like Sage and Kim together.

Again, there is the normal Aurora Rose Reynolds tropes, which definitely aren’t for everyone. But if you like over the top alpha heroes, with a little suspense and some insta-love, give the Until Him series a try. I am definitely excited to read the next one the series, Until Cobi, but I have to wait until it’s release.

    Until Jax sounds like one I’d really enjoy. I do like an Alpha and I don’t mind a little bossy if it doesn’t get too over the top. It sounds like there’s enough positive to outweigh any negative here. Until Sage sounds good but it doesn’t appeal to me as much between the bossiness and the keeping secrets.
