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.
O.M.G! Does Aurora Rose Reynolds write anything but stellar books? I really don't think so! Every book I've read by her is AWESOME! She really writes about alphas like no other! I sound like a broken record when it comes my reviews for Aurora Rose Reynolds, but honestly, how many ways can you say her writing and stories are awesome!? Until Jax falls in line with the awesomeness. I mean, really, this author creates THE BEST alphas ever!
We met Ellie in Until July. She was being held captive when July was kidnapped and they escaped together. As soon as Jax Mayson (SWOON for the Mayson men!) sees Ellie, he feels The Boom. If you've read any of the books with these hot guys you know all about The Boom. He goes all protective and alpha for her and I loved every second of it! Ellie, of course, is confused, disorientated, and really just not quite sure what to do with Jax and how to relate to him.
Ellie doesn't just have herself to worry about, though. She has a daughter, Hope. Jax takes her in immediately, and it isn't long until he is in love with the little girl himself. She is just so dang cute! Even though Ellie starts off disorientated in her new situation with Jax, she quickly finds her footing. She is used to being on her own and being the sole caregiver for Hope. In other words, she is fiercely independent and strong. She is a perfect match for Jax.
The only issue I had with this story is that, for me, there were a couple of flow issues. One thing would be going on, but then in the very next paragraph something totally different is happening. This only happened maybe two or three times, but each time it did, it gave me pause and I had to mentally get on board with what was happening. Despite that. This is a really, really, really great read and I can't wait for the next book from this author.
“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.
