‘Until June’ by Aurora Rose Reynolds release day blitz

image

Blurb
June Mayson and Evan Barrister’s whirlwind courtship resulted in a secret marriage right before he left for boot camp. Evan knows deep in his gut that June is too good for him, but after getting a taste of the beautiful life they can have together, he’s unwilling to let her go. June promises to wait for him, knowing neither time or distance will ever change her feelings for Evan—that is until she’s served with divorce papers while he’s overseas and she’s forced to let him go.

Her marriage and divorce a well-kept secret, the last person June expects to run into when she moves back to her hometown is Evan. Angry over the past, she does everything within her power to ignore the pull she feels whenever he is near. But how can she ignore the pain she sees every time their eyes meet? How can she fight the need to soothe him even if she knows she’s liable to get hurt once again?

Is it possible for June and Evan to find their way back to each other again? Or will they be stopped by an outside force before they ever have a shot?

Review
In the second book of the Until Her series, we follow the second of the Asher daughters, June, as she reunites with an old flame after he broke her heart a year earlier

Evan certainly gave Wes a run for his money for top alpha in the series, but I don’t know if he has that whole package that could beat out Wes. I loved how sweet and tender he was with June but we didn’t see all his layers like we did with Wes. June for her own is certainly someone I like to get to know more about. She is funny and sweet and stubborn (just like her mother). Reynolds does a good job at finding the right combo between Asher and November in the kids and after this book it really got me interested in April’s book (assuming she gets one too)

Like many of the other books of the series, there is a big build up to what I expected to be a big showdown, but ultimately it’s done in a few pages. I would have loved to have read more about the history of June and Evan and loved to seen more of how Evan came to the reasoning of getting divorced from June the first time around. Peraps we will get to see more from them in other books like we got to see more of Wes in this book.

I am a big fan of the Until series. I like the alpha male and how he goes all caveman on the woman of the story. These books accomplish exactly what I would want to read when I am on vacation or relaxing by the pool. It’s a book that I can relax to read and don’t have to go crazy trying to figure out what is going to happen. After some of the other books I’ve been reading lately I needed a book like this. 

Rating: B-

Excerpt
Seeing Evan again is taking a toll on me, I can’t sleep and my mind is in a constant state of turmoil. I wake up in the middle of the night from dreams of us. The memories of him, of us are too much. Some memories have the ability to heal. The ability to light up the dark because the beauty of the memory is so bright you’re still able to bask in it.

But the memories of us are killing me slowly. They remind me that for one moment I had everything while reminding me it’s gone. It’s the realization that we’re done that’s killing me. The realization that I can see him but can’t touch him that he exist but he’s not mine is agonizing.

Excerpt

Prologue

Looking at my reflection in the mirror across from me, I cringe. My hair is a disaster, there are bags under my eyes, and the nightgown I have on isn’t even one of the cute ones I normally wear. It’s the one my sister, December, got me as a joke, but I wear it occasionally, because its comfortable, even if it was made for a woman three times my age. Resting my elbows on the desk in front of me, I run my fingers through my hair, pulling the strands back away from my face.

“I hate men,” I whisper into the empty interrogation room, where I was told to wait over an hour ago after the police kicked in my door and dragged me from my bed. Lifting my gaze, I look at myself in the mirror again and vow that whenever I get out of the mess my ex-boyfriend has gotten me into, I’m going to learn how to be a lesbian, even if I’m not sure that’s actually possible.

“June Mayson.” Turning my head, I look over my shoulder at the now open door behind me, and my eyes meet those of a man who reminds me of my dad. He looks to be in his mid-forties, and is one of those men time has been kind to. He’s built, with dark hair that’s cut short and parted on the side. His eyes are a blue that stands out against his dark lashes and tan skin. “I’m Officer Mitchell, and this is Officer Plymouth.” He nods behind him and is followed in by a man who must be playing the roll off ‘Bad Cop’, judging by the frown on his face and the look he gives me when our eyes meet. Time hasn’t been as kind to him; he looks like he has enjoyed one too many beers. His middle is soft, and his skin doesn’t look healthy.

Nodding, I cross my arms over my chest and run my hands down the bare skin of my biceps that’s chilled from the cool air coming from the vent above me.

“Would you like something to drink?” Officer Mitchell asks as he walks fully into the room.

Shaking my head, I mutter, “No, thank you.”

“Hot chocolate?” he offers, and I feel tears burn the back of my eyes. Since I was little, whenever I was having a bad day, my dad would offer me hot chocolate. His hot chocolate has magical powers that always make everything seem okay, but I doubt police station hot chocolate would have the same effect.

“No, thanks. I’d just like to know why I’m here,” I tell him as he takes a seat in the metal chair across from me and places a thick folder on the table between us.

“We may be here awhile, Miss Mayson, so I’d like you to be comfortable,” he says gently, and I look at Officer Plymouth, who is leaning against the wall, then back to him.

“I don’t mean to be rude, Mr. Mitchell, but I’d really like to get to the point. I have class in a few hours and I’d really like to make it on time.”

“I’m afraid you’re probably going to miss your class today, Miss Mayson.”

Closing my eyes, I open them slowly and ask, “Can I get a sweater?”

Surprisingly, Officer Plymouth slips off his suit jacket and walks it over to me, placing it around my shoulders.

‘Thank you,” I whisper up at him, and his eyes soften around the edges. Pulling my eyes from him, my gaze goes back toward Officer Mitchell.

“How long have you known Lane Diago?” Officer Mitchell asks, and I sit up a little taller.

“I don’t know anyone by that name,” I tell him, and he opens the file folder, fanning out a few pictures of my ex-boyfriend, Aaron, and me directly in front of me. Each of them were taken while we were a couple, showing we had been followed more than a few times. Him coming to my apartment…him kissing me outside my car…at the store, walking hand-in-hand down the aisles…at the movies…out to dinner…both of us doing normal couple things.

“You mean Aaron?”

“That what he told you his name was?” he asks, and I nod looking up at him.

“I’ve known him for about a year,” I whisper, dropping my eyes to the pictures again, realizing I actually didn’t know him, since his name isn’t even Aaron.

“How long have you two been dating?” he inquires, and my eyes drop to the pictures once more.

“We dated for about four months. I broke up with him a month ago,” I tell him truthfully as a feeling of sadness hits me unexpectedly. I wasn’t in love with Aaron—or Lane. Not even close. But I cared about him, and believed he cared about me as well. That was, until he sent me a text to meet him at his house. When I got there, one of his roommates let me in, and I found him up in his room with Susie Detrei’s mouth around his cock, proving I was wrong about him.

“You were close,” Officer Mitchell states, and I nod because we were, or I thought we were. “Can you tell me who this man is?” he asks, pulling out a picture of Aaron’s—Lane’s cousin, or at least the guy he told me was his cousin.

“Aaron…I mean Lane’s cousin Cody. He lives in Mississippi,” I tell him.

“Did you ever overhear them talking?”

“Overhear them talking?” I ask, looking at a picture of Cody and Lane sitting in what looks like a bar, Lane with his favorite beer in his hand, and Cody with a short, wide glass with dark liquid and ice on the bar top in front of him, and his hand wrapped around it while he laughs at something.

“Overhear them talking about anything out of the ordinary?”

“No.”

“Are you sure about that?”

“Maybe if you told me exactly why I’m here, I can give you the information you’re looking for.”

“Lane Diago’s uncle is one of the biggest distributors of illegal narcotics in Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, and South Carolina.”

“What?” I whisper as my eyes focus on one of the pictures of Lane and me standing outside my apartment. I was wearing a short colorful summer dress and gold strappy sandals, and Lane had on a pair of black cargo shorts and a plain white tee. His head was bent toward mine, my hand was resting against his chest, and his was wrapped tight around my hip. It was our third date and our first kiss. I had waited forever to even go on a date with him, because I wasn’t ready for a relationship. I finally gave in to him, because he was so persistent. He asked me out every time we saw each other, and he was always dramatic in the way he did it.

“Did you ever see—”

“I never saw anything,” I cut him off. “Lane didn’t even smoke pot, and almost everyone I know smokes pot,” I whisper, pulling my eyes from the picture to look at him.

“You two were together a lot. He would have you drop him places. My men saw you on more than one occasion.”

“To friends’ houses,” I tell him, suddenly finding it hard to breathe. “If he asked me to drop him to a friend’s or to run him somewhere when we were going out, I would do it, but I never saw him do anything illegal.”

“Do you understand you can go to prison if we find out you spent any of the money he earned from selling drugs on things for yourself.”

Laughing, I cover my face with my hands and lay my head on the table while I try to pull myself together. I probably shouldn’t be laughing right now but its either laugh or cry.

“What do you find funny about this?” Officer Plymouth asks, and I lift my head to look at him.

“I paid for us to do things more than once, and he even asked me for gas money a couple of times. I never, not once, took money from him, not even for a coffee,” I tell him, and his eyes go to Officer Mitchell, who mutters, “Fuck.”

“He cheated on me a month ago, and I haven’t talked to him since then,” I tell him, and he shakes his head.

“We have time stamps for phone calls between the two of you over the last month.”

“Did you ever look at how long those calls lasted?” I ask, knowing that if he did, he would know we didn’t actually talk. “He called. He called over and over. Finally, I had to pick up to tell him to stop calling me. I didn’t want anything to do with him a month ago, and I sure as hell don’t want anything to do with him now.”

“Another fucking road block,” Officer Plymouth grumbles, and my head swings to him.

“I’m sorry. I swear that if I knew anything, I would help you out, but I don’t. Lane never told me anything, and I sure as hell didn’t see anything. If I had, I would have talked to my uncle about it.”

“You’re sure you didn’t see anything, hear anything?”

“I’m sure,” I tell him, wishing I did know something, not because I’m a rat, but because I know what drugs can do to people. I know not everyone dies from using drugs, not everyone’s life goes to shit from using them, but my best roommate freshmen year of college overdosed and died, and that was only after she turned into a completely different person. Someone I didn’t like much. Someone I couldn’t trust. So, there’s no way I would ever protect anyone who is responsible for supplying those drugs, no matter how much I care about them.

“Would you be willing to get back in with Lane?” Officer Plymouth asks, bringing my attention to him. My heart flips in my chest at the thought, but I don’t get a chance to answer, because someone bangs hard on the glass mirror in front of me, causing my image to go funny.

Top 5 books coming out in May

crown

#5 – The Crown by Kiera Cass

Out: 5/3

Goodreads Page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26074181-the-crown?from_new_nav=true&ac=1&from_search=true

It’s been 20 years since the events of The One and there is going to be a new selection but surprise comes from the selection as the heart makes a surprise decision. Like the rest of the books of the series, it’s going to be a lot of twists and turns that it’s going to be hard to put the book down and not try and see where Cass is going to take the fans.

the last star

#4 – The Last Star by Rick Yancey

Out: 5/24

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16131489-the-last-star?from_search=true&search_version=service

It’s the final book of the series and The Others are looking to finish taking out the human race while Cassie races to try and stop them.

The final book of the series is going to be one that is going to have you guessing from start to finish. Of course it will be compared to Allegiant and Mockingjay, but hopefully fans will look at the book as a separate entity than the other books. Be ready to strap yourself in because it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

the spiral down cover

#3 – The Spiral Down by Aly Martinez

Out: 5/17

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/27187752-the-spiral-down?from_search=true&search_version=service

This is a M/M romance that follows a musician and a captain that go into a relationship that neither one of them saw coming.

It is going to be something different coming from Aly Martinez but it’s going to be fun to see what she wrote. The fact that she is writing about someone who is ‘straight’ and how things change when he meets the protagonist. If you have read her books in the past, she has a way of having you connect with the characters no matter what is going on in the story.

until june ebook

#2 – Until June by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Out: 5/24
Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25763989-until-june?from_new_nav=true&ac=1&from_search=true

In the new book of the Until Her series, we follow June who reunites with her whirlwind husband when he returns home from the Army but she finds that he might not be the same person that he was before he left her behind.

Of course, with the fact that the love interest is from the military, he’s going to be all alpha male, domineering that we love. He will fit right into the rest of the Mayson men we get to see whether or not he can get June back. Also, the fun thing will be to see how they began their romance and why it broke apart.

the problem with forever

#1 – The Problem with Forever by Jennifer Armentrout

Out: March 17

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26721568-the-problem-with-forever?from_new_nav=true&ac=1&from_search=true

In this new book, we follow Mallory as she goes to school for the first time in her senior year of high school after spending the rest of her life being homeschool. She learns that life may not be what she imagined it to be and it gets more difficult when she meets Rider.

Armentrout’s books and characters are some of the best and most relatable characters that exist in the literary world. There may be things about the overall story that is not you, but certain details stick out that you can relate to. Whether it be the pain that they feel or the happiness in a different scene. After reading the book for the 10th time, you find that her lingo works its way into your everyday life.

What book are you most excited to read this month?
