In the second book of the Until series, we follow Asher’s brother Trevor as he finds his ‘one’ in Liz as they meet and fall in love.

Trevor, like his brother, was a player of sorts and had one particular female, named Jen, that really latched on to him. Once he met Liz (a woman who worked at a store in town and had her own issues with her brother and mother) he can’t help but fall in love with her.

Trevor and Liz have a very fun relationship as Trevor is very controlling and Liz is very stubborn and independent. Of course those two types of people will butt heads but it does lead to some passionate nights. We get to see the transformation that Liz has on Trevor and vice versa as they both open up to the idea of love.

There is a lot of overlap between this relationship and Asher and November’s relationship in the first story. The only thing that separates the two is the conflict in this story. While the conflict in this story is more interesting then the first story, the scenes of watching Trevor and Liz fall in love did repeat from the first story a bit. At first it was ok, but then it got a little redundant.

The story, just like the first book in the series, has a lot of grammatical and run on errors. They really stick out and deducts a star from the rating. What would make this story a whole lot better is just fixing the small errors. Yes there may be some repeated stuff in regards of the relationship and them falling in love, but I don’t think fans will mind so much as the story has different endings.

Overall, the story does have a lot of run on sentences and grammatical errors but if you can get over that, then you will enjoy this book.

Book #1 – Until November

Book review – “Until November” by Aurora Rose Reynolds – a good idea but didn’t pay enough time on developing story

Format: ebook, paperback
Series: book 1 of Until series
Rating: 18+ language, sexual content
Genre: Romance/New Adult

The book follows November as she moves down to Tennessee to move in with her father after she gets attacked in New York. She quickly meets Asher and they hit it off immediately. Her happy ever after gets challenged as ghosts from her past follow her and threaten everything that she’s building.

Asher knows that she is the girl for him and he is determined to do anything in his power to make her see that. She has had a rough childhood, believing htat she wasn’t beautiful and not worthy and Asher breaks down those walls and makes her feel those things for the first time in her life.

For the story, the idea was there, but Reynolds didn’t develop it enough. She spent to much at having moments between Asher and November that it got a little redundant. It also didn’t make sense that they would just fall in love so quickly with one another without really knowing each other. While Reynolds sort of defended Asher’s side with the ‘Mayson curse’ but for November, it would have made more sense for her to be more standoffish considering what she grew up with.

Reynolds sped through the main story line and it was almost forgotten until the end of the book. What would have helped the book if November continued to get letters throughout the book rather then just at the beginning and then just at the end.

One big flaw with the story that stuck out the most to me was the grammatical errors and there is quite a bit. I don’t know if they transfer to the paperback version, but the e-book version there were a lot. And they were small ones that should have been picked up, such as spelling.

I really enjoyed reading about Asher and Reynold and their relationship, but it felt too rushed. Like Reynolds had all these ideas that she wanted for their relationship and tried to cram them all in the 300+ pages. She could have cut out some of the one-on-one scenes and added more of her stalker problem. That would have certainly helped with the story.

Overall, it has all the bones for a good story but the grammatical errors and rushed storyline took away from the story. Hopefully she fixes these mistakes in the upcoming books in the series.

There are three more books in the series that have been announced. The order reads Until Trevor, Until Lilly, and Until Nico. The first two books are available now with Until Nico having a schedule June 2014 released date.

Reynolds has announced a new series called Undergroud Kings with three books so far announced. The three books, Assumption, Obligation, and Distraction all have a 2014 release date set.
