Meet Jax and Ellie in this instalove, alpha romance!
Title: Until Jax
Series: Until Him #1
Author: Aurora Rose Reynolds
Release Date: September 29th, 2015
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.
“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.

About the Author:
Aurora Rose Reynolds is a navy brat who's husband served in the United States Navy. She has lived all over the country but now resides in New York City with her Husband and pet fish. She's married to an alpha male that loves her as much as the men in her books love their women. He gives her over the top inspiration everyday. In her free time she reads, writes and enjoys going to the movies with her husband and cookie. She also enjoys taking mini weekend vacations to nowhere, or spends time at home with friends and family. Last but not least she appreciates everyday and admires it's beauty.
I am probably repeating myself but I love Aurora Rose Reynolds and her writing, especially the Until Series. So for me, it's like Christmas when a book connected to this series comes out :D I love that Aurora Rose Reynolds decided to wrote the Until Her and Until Him series and I am impatiently waiting for each one of the books to come out :) So when I got my hands on Until Jax I was extremely happy and I can honestly say that I loved the story. It pretty much starts where Until July ends but the story is focused on Jax and Ellie. It is intriguing and entertaining with quite a few funny scenes mixed with romantic, tender and purely HOT ones. And when you add to that a healthy dose of danger and suspense, the book becomes a great page turner ;)
Jax and Ellie are amazing characters. I loved getting to know them and quite enjoyed reading how their relationship develops. Jax is the typical dominant alpha male you will find in Aurora Rose Reynolds' books. He is protective of the people he loves and is ready to give his life for the woman of his heart. And once he falls, he falls hard and for life. And that's exactly what happens when he meets Ellie and her daughter Hope. They both become part of him and he simply can't imagine his Life without them.
Ellie is also an incredible and interesting character. In the beginning she is scared out of her mind and jumps at every noise around her. Which considering what she went through, is quite understandable. But Jax manages to soothe the fear in her eyes and help her draw from her inner strength to become the amazing woman she was always meant to be.
In a few words, this is an amazing read that you definitely need to #oneclick. Especially if you are in love with Aurora Rose Reynolds' writing as I am. I can guarantee that Jax and Ellie will become two of your favorite characters :) As a bonus, you will get to hang out with some of the characters from the Until Series and with July and Wes :) And of course you will get introduced to the main characters for the following books in the Until Her and Until Him series :). I personally can't wait for them to come out :)
