Review Post: Stolen English by Natasha Boyd

The problem with a self appointed bodyguard that you have feelings for is that they are right up close and personal every damn day, and when they look like Evan Roark, they’re impossible to ignore.

*About the Book*


I didn’t think I’d live another day. It’s been almost ten years since I escaped to a life I could never imagine. And to a man I can only dream about. Evan Roark has been my beacon, he’s been the man who’s shown me that men who are strong can also be safe. After almost a decade, I’m finally ready to take back my life and remember the woman inside me, the woman who wants, who needs, who loves, who feels, who craves … only he’s made it clear I can’t crave him. But I haven’t made it this far to make a new life only to fail now. I want him to be the one to help me erase my past. And if he wants to be all up in my space being bossy and overprotective, and looking so hot, then I can’t help it if I’ll try anything possible to get him to touch me.


Nine years ago I asked my best friend, Xavier, for a favor, a way to keep Andrea safe. While I run security for him and guard his family against all threats, I can also keep her close. I keep her close, but never touch. But when she paints a target on her back by filing for divorce, I’m forced to make a choice, and it’s her I have to protect. And now she’s calling my bluff, letting me know she’s ready to finally trust another man to hold her, to touch her, to love her… It’s killing me. I want it to be me, but I can’t be both her lover and her protector. If I give in, then I won’t see the threat coming. I know what happens when I get distracted. People get hurt.

But she’s making it so … damn… difficult. 

Set against the backdrop of Southern France in and around a tiny storybook village reminiscent of Belle’s village in Beauty and The Beast, comes a story of a woman whose life was stolen by an abusive husband, and the man who’ll help her remember the woman she is inside.

My Review

*****5 Absolutely Incredible Stars*****

Natasha Boyd continues to be an author who I can count on for an epic and unforgettable and all feeling romance that I will truly treasure. I have read and loved every single one of her books. They are utterly incredible, truly breathtaking and beautiful, and they have given me some of the most epic love stories I have ever experienced. They are truly more in the best way and I really don’t have enough words to really capture what it’s like to experience one of her love stories. They are just that unforgettable and outstanding and utterly amazing to experience.

Stolen English was yet another example of why this author is one of my all-time favorites.

This book was captivating from the very first word. It was bursting with such vibrancy and personality from these characters, and that combined with the fiery connection that was ready to topple them both over in every moment, was literally everything. Combine that with the beautiful setting of this book, the phenomenal characters that make up this world and this family, and throw in just everything that Evan and Andrea were building between them, and you have the making of a perfect love story.

I loved every word of this book. I loved being back in this world with characters that I fell so hopelessly in love with when I was reading Broken French. I loved getting to see Evan and Andrea fight like hell against everything they were feeling, only to feel that glorious tension and build up and connection build and build and build to the point of no return. I loved that underneath these characters taking chances and pushing each other away and figuring out what they wanted, that you always knew it was the two of them. You knew through every word and every turn of that page that they were meant to be together. That they had to find a way to love. That they had to get that happily ever after that they both so deserved.

Feeling and needing that with every breath in my body through every word of this book is honestly just a scratching the surface of what I loved about Stolen English and everything that I got with Evan and Andrea.

Those two definitely make you work for it, but let me tell you, that work is so damn worth it. In those moments when these to push each other to the edge, when they make each other want things they don’t think are possible, when they make each other want more, you feel the truth and the vulnerability and the honesty of all of that. You feel everything with them. You feel how they’re putting their hearts on the line for the one person who truly means everything. You feel how even though they might be scared out of their minds to take that next step, they also need that next step like they need their next breath. And getting to be in the midst of that tension and build up and connection and that push in that pole as they thought to get to where they did in this book… It was truly everything.

Natasha Boyd does the most outstanding job of letting you live this book with these characters in a way that remind you why she is such a gifted and talented writer and storyteller. I felt it all in this book. I felt Evan struggle with the changes going on in his dynamic with Andrea, his struggle with his feelings towards her, his struggles with everything that comes to light in this book, and his struggle to stay away from the one person he has always wanted.

I connected deeply to Andrea‘s story of gaining her life and independence back after being on the run and living in fear for so long. This book was truly a celebration of her fight and her heart and everything she had done to put her self back together again. Getting to be with her as she did all of that and more, while also being with her as she waited her way through the ocean of feeling that she has for Evan was nothing short of perfection.

Combine all of that with how this author allows you to understand these characters deepest fears and worries and insecurities, while also showing how they basically give each other life and make each other stronger is incredible. It pulls your heart in something fierce, it invests you completely and deeply in their own individual journeys and what they are building together, and it has you desperate for every second with them. It has you ready for more. It has you eager to see how they will handle the many challenges that come their way on their road to finally being together. And boy do those to get some bumps in the road in this book, but the way that they handle them, the way that they’re in it together, and the way that they give it their all with their whole heart for the chance to be with one another is truly beautiful. And it’s emotionally breathtaking in a way that will sear you to them and everything they give you.

Natasha Boyd once again brings you back to the world of the Mediterranean, to a group of people who are practically family, and to two characters who are truly destined to be with one another. They have seen each other through some of the hardest moments of their lives, and this book explores how They take that chance at what could be. And that chance scares them out of their ever loving minds, but you will love getting to be with them as they take that leap, as they see what could be, and as they put their hearts on the line one last time when it really really matters.

Evan and Andrea truly give you at all in this book and you will love them. Point blank you will love them and their journey and what comes to be with them. You will love the push and the pull that it takes to get there, you will love how they always keep each other on their toes in the most fantastically infuriating way, you will love how everything with them means so much more. You will love that it’s also real and true between them. You will love that they know the other is the one who changes everything. You will love how even in the hardest of moments for these two, it always comes back to them and what could be and their pull to one another. Couple that with the breathtaking level of emotion and vulnerability you get with them along the way, and you have just part of what makes this book so utterly outstanding.

Stolen English was the perfect follow up to Broken French and it has me BEYOND eager to get more stories from this world. I’m going to need Natasha Boyd to keep writing in this world because it is a place I truly never want to leave. This world is full of life and vibrancy and memorable characters that on your heart fiercely and just the most amazing settings that will truly take your breath away. I am loving the world of these books and I really just want more. So please give us more Natasha Boyd, I beg of you!

I really don’t have enough words to really capture what it was like to experience and read this book. This book and the way this author gives you these characters and their love story is why I am a romance reader. This book is the a pitta me of an incredible love story with a happily ever after that will melt you into a puddle of goo on the floor. And you will love it.

You will love every single second of how these characters bear their souls to one another. You will love how they’re willing to fight like hell for one another even if it means they don’t get to be together in the end. You will love how even through the hardest of moments these characters are with one another, they see each other, they feel everything for one another, and they are willing to do everything possible for the other at a chance at that happily ever after. You will love how that connection sparks and burns and builds and builds in the most glorious way till that moment of unforgettable explosion where all bets are off. You will love how everything with Evan and Andrea feels like so much more. You will love how they love one another, how they are with one another, and how they just truly respect one another.

Simply put, you will love them, you will love their love story, and you will love every single second you get with them in Stolen English.

Natasha Boyd once again delivers an epic and all feeling romance that will make you swoon, that will make you smile until your cheeks hurt, that will have you feeling every emotion possible, and that will just have you utterly in love with her characters and their love and journey to that happily ever after. She wholeheartedly invests you and everything her characters share and go through in the story, and she will have you in every breath of her words in this book as she delivers the romance your heart and soul needs. Through her incredible writing she gives you these characters in the most honest and real way, and then a way that will have you basking in every single second you get with them. Throw in some serious fun and spice along the way and you have the makings of one hell of a love story.

And really that’s just scratching the surface of what makes this one of the best love stories and romance novels that I have read this year.

I love everything about this book and I cannot recommend it to you enough. Read this book, bask in this series, live these love stories with these characters. You will not regret it and in fact your heart will thank you for it because everything you get in this world with these characters through these stories and this author‘s words is nothing short of everything. It is what romance books should be and it continues to show again and again the talent this author has with the written word and with capturing and creating love. I’m truly so thankful that I have the chance to read books like this because they make my romance reading loving heart so beyond happy and I can’t say it enough.

Stolen English was beautiful perfection. It is a story about a woman who fights like hell for a second chance at life, and the knight in shining armor who is ready and willing to do whatever it takes to protect her, to be there for her, and to make sure every one of her dreams come true. It is a story of resiliency, heart and emotion, and so much admiration and adoration between these two. It is a story of two people who are truly destined for one another. It is a story of what happens when that leap of faith and that second chance at it all truly makes all the difference in the world. Because that chance, and that leap of faith? It can truly change the trajectory of your entire life and your love and everything if you allow yourself to have it… And Andrea and Evan are the epitome of that in this book.

They are everything, right along with their amazing love story.

So seriously, just read this book. Read it, love it, and love every single word of it. You will not regret it. Not one little bit. Read this entire series and better yet read every book by this author. You will love every single word she gives you, and you will love the epic an unforgettable love stories you get in this book, and an every other one of her books. Natasha Boyd is truly one of the best, and Stolen English just proves that again and again a million times over.

My Review

*****5 All Feeling Stars*****

It’s no secret that Tia Louise’s One to Hold Series is one of my favorite ongoing series. I really can’t get enough of these dynamic characters, their heart tugging stories, and every memorable moment I get with them all. Each new book gives me a new story with them all, and the more I read this book, the more I fell once again for everything that Tia Louise so thoughtfully crafted in this book. Her writing just brings the world of this book to life in such an authentic way that invests you whole heartedly in what you’re reading.

Tia Louise never fails to give me a story that just doesn’t quit, and that pulls at all my emotions in the most all-feeling way, and One to Take was no different. This book allowed me to feel it all with Stuart and Mariska, and it was emotionally intense in the most fitting way for those two. This book hurt my heart for those two, but it also tried to heal it at the same time, and in between it gave me so many moments to blush and melt and swoon over. All of that wove together to make a story that was equal parts beautiful, meaningful, heartbreaking, and healing, and I loved every word of it.

One to Take was the perfect addition to this series, and it had me loving Stuart and Mariska even more than I already did. I have to say I think these two are my favorite couple of this series. Not that I don’t love all the other couples, but there is just something about the seemingly opposite Mariska and Stuart and the love that they share. There’s just something so distinctive and wonderful about those two, their story and journey together, and the depth of their feelings. Their story in One to Take completely solidified my immense love for those two.

Everything Stuart and Mariska go through in this book will have you feeling so much for the two of them, and in the end I promise you that you will love every emotionally gripping second you get with them in One to Take.

What I absolutely loved about One to Take:

  • Mariska’s vibrancy. Mariska is one of the most vibrant characters I have ever had the pleasure of reading, and being inside her head once again in One to Take was simply wonderful. She has such a wonderful and vivid spirit that just emanates from her. There’s this effervescent spark that lights off of every page she is on, and I loved getting to experience that spark in this book. I especially loved that the events of this book tested that vibrancy and Mariska, yet that girl kept fighting all the way through in her own ways. She faced a darkness that threatened to consume her, yet she still kept pushing and fighting in only a way that she could, and her vibrancy continued to shine through that darkness in the most mesmerizing way. In One to Take Mariska goes on a journey of self-discovery and healing, and through every page of this book I just loved her and her sparkling vibrancy even more because of the tenacity and strength it showed in her.
  • Stuart’s stubbornness. Stuart Knight is one stubborn man, but that is one of the many things I absolutely love about him. There is just something about his strong and stubborn self that never fails to squeeze and melt my heart simultaneously. What I loved about Stuart’s character in this book is that he was once again put to the test, emotionally and mentally. He along with Mariska faced a tragedy that broke their hearts, and that forces Stuart to really dive down deep into himself and see who he really wanted to be. And sure there were moments when I wanted to shake this man silly because of what he was or wasn’t doing, but through it all my heart just went to him because I completely understood everything he was thinking and feeling. I understood his motives, and I knew that that stubborn tenacity would shine through in the best way, and I was right. This book solidified my love for that man, and through it all I never once doubted what I knew he was capable of.
  • What happens after the happily ever after. The events of One to Take follow Stuart and Mariska after the happily ever after the two of them shared in One to Leave, and shows what happens when the two of them face the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. The events that come their way in this book will push them a bit, break them a lot, and will send them reeling in ways they never thought possible. This book was not easy for the two of them, yet at the same time it forced them to realize so many things about themselves and their relationship. Throughout every emotional up and down that came their way in this book, they faced it head on and heart first. Even though it wasn’t always easy for those two, you will not doubt that Stuart and Mariska will do just about anything to find their way back to one another in hopes of once again finding that illustrious and well deserved happily ever after.
  • A love story I felt every word of. Tia Louise’s outstanding writing crafted a story in One to Love that I felt and experienced every word of. I loved every moment of it. Every moment of romance and heat that brought a certain kind of blush to my cheek, or made me swoon like nobody’s business. Every moment of heartbreak that took a crack at my heart and had tears coming to my eyes. Every moment that attempted to put Stuart and Mariska’s hearts (and mine!) back together again. Every incredible, emotionally gripping, and consuming moment of this book was one that I felt every word of because of Tia Louise’s thoughtfully crafted writing. She let me experience every single moment of this book like I was in it with them, and that invested me in every way in what I was reading.
  • Connection, connection, connection. Stuart and Mariska share one helluva fierce connection, and there is no ifs, ands, or buts about that. You feel that connection through every page of One to Take, and that connection takes the two of them to placed they’d never thought they’d be. That connection that initially brought them together in One to Leave is strengthened, cracked at, and explored in this book in the most memorable of ways. Their connection has such fire to it, such spark, and such feeling and emotion and love. Through every turn of the page in One to Take you will be hoping with all you have that the incredible connection Stuart and Mariska share will be enough to see them through even the darkest of days.
  • The best supporting characters around. The One to Hold series has some of the best characters around, and One to Take gives you the amazing opportunity to spend time with all of them. I love how Tia Louise weaves together all of these characters because it really makes this book and this series feel like coming home in a way. She makes all these wonderfully distinctive characters feel like family, and she invests you in them all so fully, so every moment you get with them just makes everything you’re reading and experiencing that much more. I loved every moment I got with all those supporting characters in this book, and it honestly just made me so beyond excited for what’s to come from them all because that’s how much I love them all.

One to Take explores what happens after the happily ever after. It explores what happens when you meet someone who is seemingly your opposite, yet is the one person you know you’re meant to be with. It looks at what happens when life throws things your way that will break your heart and test every part of you, and what you must do next in order to pick yourself up again in order to live the life you want, the life you crave with every ounce of your being. It looks at what happens when you must realize things about yourself and your love, and how the fight and tenacity and sparkling will you have can see you through if you just keep going and trying and fighting.

This is a book of love, loss, heartbreak, and healing, and the way your life can change in ways you never thought possible when you have all of those things. And sure it might be the scariest and riskiest thing you ever experience, but it might also be the exact thing you need in your life to complete you in ways you never thought possible.

Stuart and Mariska share something so beautiful, so meaningful, so heart squeezing, and so completely consuming in their story in One to Take. It is emotionally meaningful and gripping to say the least, and I am telling you that the more you read their story, the more you will feel, care for, and love those two with all that you’ve got. Their story in One to Take is one that I was so ready for, and I couldn’t have asked for more from those two and what they go through. It was real, mesmerizing, emotional, and intense, and at the end of the day it was them all the way through.

Simply put, I loved this book something fierce. I loved Stuart and Mariska and what I got to so enthrallingly experience with them. I loved Tia Louise’s phenomenal writing and what she so fantastically gave me in this book with them, and in the end I couldn’t have asked for a better or more all-feeling book for one of my favorite book couples.

~ Mariska~

When I open my eyes again the next morning, and I’m alone in bed, I’m pissed. Sitting up, I know what I have to do. I pull my hair around, over my shoulder and weave it into a thick braid then I throw back the covers and stomp over to the window. Still raining.

Going to the closet, I jerk it open, pulling out a bright red floral dress and pulling it over my head not bothering with a bra. It buttons up the front, but I only fasten the middle ones. I’ve had enough of this behavior.

Amy is sitting at the kitchen table when I emerge from the hall. “Hey, Mare! I want you to read my coffee grounds!”

“In a minute,” I grumble, going straight to the door and outside. Light rain gathers in little beads on my hair, making it look like I’m wearing a veil.

Into the barn, I scan the open space looking for Bill. As far as I can tell, the only person in the area with the horses is Stuart, just the man I’m looking for.

He’s in Ranger’s stall, and I go straight to the door, pull the latch, and go inside. He stands up slowly, a confused smile on his face, and it hits me so hard. He’s gorgeous in those loose jeans and that damn grey Henley I stole last year.

“Hey, babe—” but I don’t let him finish. I go straight to him and grab the front of my favorite shirt.

“I’m sick of it!” From the corner of my eye, I see Ranger’s ears lay back, but I don’t care.

Stuart’s brow lowers. “Sick of what?”

“Stop treating me like a fucking China doll!”


“No!” I push him, but he doesn’t move. The man is a wall of granite. “Before you knew, before I told you, when I was already twelve weeks pregnant, if I left you in the bed alone one morning… One! You were pissed!”

He’s fighting the urge to grin, but I won’t have it. I push against his arms and grab the front of his shirt, shoving it up his lined torso.

“What are you doing?” He tries to catch my hands, but I push his away.

“You’re going to fuck me right here and now in this stall.”

“What the…” He steps forward, past me to the door of the stall and looks out into the barn. “Where’s Amy?”

“She’s in the house having breakfast with your mom. I don’t know where Bill is.”

“He went into town,” Stuart says quietly before turning to face me.

“Then we’re alone.” My hands are on his waist, but I only get the top button of his jeans open before he catches them.

“Take it easy. We’re not doing this here.”

The tightness in my chest almost makes me scream. I’m breathing fast, and my whole body is on fire with fury and hormones and lust. “Stuart William! You’re the only man I’ve ever slept with!”

“I’m glad to hear it,” he says, that sexy smile returning.

“You taught me how to make love—fierce and rough and demanding. I want you to love me like that now.”

I unfasten the buttons on my dress, allowing the front to fall apart, revealing my bare breasts heaving beneath. His expression darkens, and I see a glimmer of the old Stuart in his eyes.

He reaches out and catches my waist, pulling me hard against his chest. A flash of need spikes in my veins. “Yes,” I whisper. “Like that.”

The muscle in his jaw moves, and he looks away. “I can’t get off thinking I might hurt you.”

“You’ve never hurt me before.” Sliding my hands up his arms, I grip his biceps. “You’re hurting me by holding back.”

Reaching for his hand, I guide it down, pulling my skirt up so he can feel I’m not wearing panties, so he can feel how wet I am. “I want you. The real you.”

“Mariska,” he growls as his fingers curl against my sex.

Putting both hands on his face, I pull him to me and kiss him hard, parting his lips and pushing my tongue inside. At the same time, his fingers plunge into me, and a low moan scrapes from my throat.

I rise on my toes, chasing his lips, and he’s kissing me back with just as much passion, plundering my mouth. When I pull back, I nip his bottom lip with my teeth, and our eyes meet, burning with the fire I’ve been missing so long.

He takes my arm and turns me around, pushing me against the wooden side of the corral.

“Yes,” I gasp, clutching the wooden slats, arching my back as I brace against the wall. Cool air sweeps along my thighs and ass as he sweeps the flowing skirt away.

He studies my body as I hear his zipper lower. One large hand grips my hip, kneading my skin. “So beautiful.” His voice is rough and hungry.

“Please,” I whisper. I’m on fire, and I ache deeply for his rough touch.

At once I feel a stinging SLAP! against the soft skin of my behind followed by another kneading grip. The biting pain only spikes my desire.

“Oh god, yes,” I sigh. My legs tremble. Sparks of pleasure fizz in my veins, and waiting for him is almost painful. I moan as he slides his erection up and down my slick folds until finally, in one hard thrust, we both groan as he plunges inside.

My Review


Aurora Rose Reynold’s books are an instant one-click for me. Her Until Series is one of my all-time favorites, and those Mayson brothers along with their seriously fantastic lady friends are some of my favorite characters around. (I mean hello, Nico Mayson anyone?) So when she started her Until Her and Until Him series following the children of those characters, I knew that I was in for another round of stories that I would completely love.

Whenever I sit down to read a book by this author I know I’m going to get one outstanding read filled with fantastic characters, a story that just doesn’t quit, and one mesmerizing boom that I will feel so truly and deeply.

Until Jax gave me all of that and more, and I loved every word I got to experience with Ellie and Jax in their heart melting story. Through every page, as I fell more and more under Jax Mayson’s spell as he gave it all he had to win over Ellie, I realized over and over again why this author’s books and her stories continue to be some of my favorites. The feels, the romance, and the overall experience of reading a book by Aurora Rose Reynolds is something truly memorable.

I loved every single minute of reading this book, and by the end of it I just wanted more because I loved these characters, their heart squeezing story, and the phenomenal world of this book so much. Knowing and feeling so connected to these characters that I hated to leave them is just one of the many tells I had to know that this book was outstanding. Suffice to say, I loved Until Jax something fierce, and I can’t stop thinking and loving everything I got from Jax and Ellie over the course of their all-feeling, swoonworthy, and romance filled story.

What I absolutely loved about Until Jax:

  • Sweet and endearing Ellie. Ellie was a seriously endearing character that my heart immediately cared and loved from the moment I met her in this book. Her character was previously introduced at the end of Until July, and I couldn’t wait to learn more about her in this book. Ellie is warm, loving, and a truly good person doing all that she could to take care of her daughter. She is selfless and kind, and the goodness that emanates from her completely won me over the instant I met her. The more I got to know her, the more I loved her fiercely. Over the course of Until Jax, a true strength develops in Ellie, and it was fantastic to see that side come out of her after everything that she goes through, and how that new side to her comes into play into the story. She truly is a gem of a character with a heart of gold that I completely loved.
  • Jax Mayson stole my heart and I never want it back. Jax Mayson stole my heart completely in this book. He took it from the moment he started calling Ellie baby and taking care of her and Hope, and he just kept taking more and more of it as this story continues. I gladly gave it all to him because that man is good. He is honest, and swoony, and has you falling so hard under his charming and spark filled spell that is bursting with so much feeling. Jax, like all of Aurora Rose Reynold’s male characters, is strong and protective and a definite force to be reckoned with, but can still be brought to his knees from one sweet little girl and her selfless as all get out mother. I loved that about him, and just how much he cared and did everything he could to protect his girls throughout this book. Jax is honest, persistent, and just a good guy, and you feel that on every single page.
  • The build to the relationship and feelings. One of my favorite aspects to Until Jax was that there was such a build to the relationship that Jax and Ellie share. Sure there’s the boom and these characters have chemistry out the wazoo, but they both take it slow too because they know they need to for both theirs and Hope’s sake. Their cautious and patient, and they definitely hit some bumps in the road, but through it all they keep trying and pushing and fighting in hopes of being together. I loved experiencing that build, and it just connected me more to Jax and Ellie as they journeyed together in this story. That build made all that they were sharing more, and had me so invested in them both because of how their relationship so outstandingly begins, grows, and evolves.
  • Moments you feels so truly in your heart. There were so many moments in Until Jax that I felt so deeply in my heart. Moments that had me feeling all the passion and fire hot chemistry Jax and Ellie were sharing. Moments that had me feeling the love and devotion that Ellie had towards her daughter, and how those feelings begin to develop and grow between Ellie and Jax. Moments that had me melting and swooning from the things that were coming out of Jax’s mouth balanced perfectly with the moments that had me wanting to shake some sense into that man for some of the things that happened. I felt and lived through all of these moments because of how thoughtfully Aurora Rose Reynolds crafts this book, and I loved every all-feeling moment I got to experience because it just made me love this story more.
  • Twists and turns galore! One thing that is guaranteed in a book by Aurora Rose Reynolds is twists and turns that keep you so beyond hooked into everything that you’re reading. Until Jax definitely has some twists and turns you don’t see coming, and I am telling you that your jaw will drop more than once while reading this book. The events of this story definitely put these characters in some situations they never thought they’d be in, and you will be so pulled into those events and what they bring out in both Jax and Ellie. Those moments make them fight and push and give it their all, and they’re truly magnificent to experience.
  • The gangs all here! The supporting characters in Until Jax are fantastic, and I honestly loved each and every one of their fabulous and distinctive selves. You not only get to catch up with the original Mayson brothers in this book along with their wives, but you get the phenomenal chance to get to know all their children and what’s been going on with them. Aurora Rose Reynolds adds all of their characters into this story so seamlessly, and makes it so you have to know what in the world is to come with all of them too. Suffice to say, I can’t wait to see where this author takes their characters next as she continues this series!
  • Here comes the firework level boom. Every book in this series has a boom. That person who these characters instantly connect and feel so much for, and that is what sets this series apart in the best way. That boom defines these books, gives them so much feeling and emotion right from the start. That boom is also bursting with so much hope and fight and firework level spark, and leaves you feeling so much right from the start for these characters because they experience that oh so remarkable boom. Aurora Rose Reynolds brings that aspect back once again in this book, and includes that into the story in the most extraordinary that leaves you knowing what that boom is so freaking amazing.

Until Jax was another all-around outstanding read from Aurora Rose Reynolds. It gave me all that I’ve come to expect and love from this author’s fantastic writing and storytelling, and honestly it gave me so much more to love. I loved every bit of this book, and every word that I got to so fully experience while reading. Aurora Rose Reynolds and her fabulous writing makes it so easy to sink right into what you’re reading from the moment you begin, and has you feeling and living through it all until well after you finish.

Jax and Ellie completely won me over right from the get go in their story. They were real and honest and they both had their vulnerable moments where my heart just stuck to them like glue, and through it all I just felt so much for them. They are two fantastic characters, with hearts of gold, trying to make their way through the immense feelings and connection they are sharing, and in Until Jax you get a front row seat to it all. You’re with them every step of the way, and I promise you that if you’ve loved any books by this author or if you’re just a lover of love stories, then you will love this book.

Until Jax shows what it means to truly give your all to someone, and that all is pretty darn spectacular to experience. Trust me. Ellie and Jax are so good and easy to love, and the spell they cast in this book is impossible to resist!

until jax teaser 4



“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.

I met a boy once.

He made my heart go into a frenzy every time he looked at me, and my knees go weak whenever he touched me. Our love was so beautiful that even its demise was bittersweet.

I met a girl once.

Her world, full of possibilities, made me feel like even I had a chance at being someone. She believed in me. She loved me. We were so secure, that even our breaking point seemed hazy.

Until we reached it.

Meet Millie and David (Tag) in the newest stand alone by Amy Harmon

“She said I was like a song. Her favorite song.”

the song of david cover


Amazon US:

Amazon UK:

Barnes & Noble:





She said I was like a song. Her favorite song. A song isn’t something you can see. It’s something you feel, something you move to, something that disappears after the last note is played.

I won my first fight when I was eleven years old, and I’ve been throwing punches ever since. Fighting is the purest, truest, most elemental thing there is. Some people describe heaven as a sea of unending white. Where choirs sing and loved ones await. But for me, heaven was something else. It sounded like the bell at the beginning of a round, it tasted like adrenaline, it burned like sweat in my eyes and fire in my belly. It looked like the blur of screaming crowds and an opponent who wanted my blood.

For me, heaven was the octagon.

 Until I met Millie, and heaven became something different. I became something different. I knew I loved her when I watched her stand perfectly still in the middle of a crowded room, people swarming, buzzing, slipping around her, her straight dancer’s posture unyielding, her chin high, her hands loose at her sides. No one seemed to see her at all, except for the few who squeezed past her, tossing exasperated looks at her unsmiling face. When they realized she wasn’t normal, they hurried away. Why was it that no one saw her, yet she was the first thing I saw?

If heaven was the octagon, then she was my angel at the center of it all, the girl with the power to take me down and lift me up again. The girl I wanted to fight for, the girl I wanted to claim. The girl who taught me that sometimes the biggest heroes go unsung and the most important battles are the ones we don’t think we can win.

**This is David ‘Tag’ Taggert’s book, a supporting character introduced in The Law of Moses. This is a stand-alone story.

Amelie and Henry didn’t come by the gym the next day. On Saturday, I thought I saw them once, beyond the wall of windows along the front of the gym, but when I looked again they were gone. I shrugged, deciding Henry must not have been as excited by the idea as Amelie thought he would be. A few minutes later I looked up to see them hovering near the speed bags, Amelie holding firmly to Henry’s arm, Henry looking as if he was about to bolt and drag his poor sister with him. They were garnering some strange looks—Henry with his crazy bedhead, his darting glances, and jittery hands and Amelie because she stood so still and looked so out of place in a gym filled with muscles and men.

I called a quick halt to my bout, escaping Axel, who was trying to pummel me into next week, and slid between the ropes that cordoned off one of the octagons.

“Amelie! Henry!” I called, noting how Amelie’s face was immediately wreathed in a relieved smile, a smile so wide it spread to her eyes, giving the illusion of sparkle and life. But Henry started backing up, pulling his sister with him.

“Yo, Henry. Hold up, man.” I stopped several feet from them and lowered my voice. “Did you know that Jack Dempsey versus Jess Willard was the very first fight to be broadcast over the radio?”

Henry stopped moving and his hands stilled.

“Do you know what year that was, Henry?”

“1919,” Henry said in a whisper. “The first televised fight was in 1931. Benny Leonard vs. Mickey Walker.”

“I didn’t know that.” Actually, I had only known about the Dempsey, Willard fight because I’d seen a biography on Dempsey on Netflix the night before. God bless Netflix. The mention of the radio had made me think of Henry and the sportscast blaring from his bedroom. “You wanna tell me more?”

“David ‘Tag’ Taggert, light heavyweight contender with a professional record of eighteen wins, two losses, ten knock outs.”

“You checked up on me, huh?”

Henry’s mouth twitched, and he looked away shyly.

“You did! What else did you find out? That all the ladies love me, that I’m the best looking fighter, pound for pound, in the universe?”

Henry looked confused for a second, and I realized he was searching his mind for that stat. I laughed. “Just kidding, buddy.”

“Six-foot three, 215 pounds, most often compared to Forrest Griffin and Michael Bisping?” Henry’s voice rose on the end, clearly seeking approval.

“I’m more charming than Bisping, and I have better ears than Forrest. But they could both probably kick my ass.”

“He said ass, Amelie!” Henry whispered, half shocked.

“Yes he did, Henry. It’s okay. That’s how fighters talk,” Amelie soothed.

“Can I say ass?” Henry whispered again, curiously.

“You can,” I cut in, “after you learn how to fight.”

 Excerpt #1 

Time isn’t something I ever thought much about.

It ebbs and flows, but it never changes. I can’t make it stop—no matter how much I want to. There’s no way to rewind the clock or halt it. In this moment, all I want is to make the world stop and go back to when I was happy and ready to tackle the world. Just two short minutes ago, there was no worry about how my day would go. I was going away with the man I love, the one who healed me. But time isn’t my friend. It slaps me in the face and laughs as I stand here wondering how the hell any of this is happening. I don’t want to move forward, and I sure as hell don’t want to slow it down.

Excerpt #2

His voice is thick and husky as he refuses to break from my eyes. “Tell me you’re real.”

“I’m real.”

“Tell me you’re really here.”

“I’m here with you.” My hand rises, and I press my thumb to his lips. “I’m here for you. I’m here with only you. I need you so much.”

His eyes close as I rub my thumb, savoring the rough feel on my skin.

“Stay with me,” he pleads.

Liam’s hands rest on each side of my face as I drag him down further. “There’s nowhere else I want to be.” Our lips meet, and I lose myself.

Love endures all things.

Darby McKenzie’s heart started beating funny the day that she met Trace Chamberlain. She was four, he was five, and that meeting altered the course of both their lives forever.

Trace was born into a nightmare. Before meeting Darby and her family, the only love he ever knew was that of his twin brother. The two of them endured years of abuse that left scars. The permanent kind.

For Trace, meeting Darby was like catching a rainbow. She exploded into his life in a pop of Technicolor that awakened his senses. She wasn’t just his best friend—she was his life. His touchstone, his safety, his heart—she was everything.

Darby had been through it all with Trace and her love for him never wavered for a second. But no amount of love could make Trace believe that he was worthy of her. Knowing that she deserved better, Trace pushed her away, when what he really wanted was to pull her closer. Emotionally destroyed and bitter from the back and forth, Darby finally let go and decided to move on.

Sometimes hitting rock bottom is the only way to understand that you need to change. Realizing that losing Darby means losing everything, Trace sets out to fight for the love of his life.

Is it too late for Darby and Trace to have a happily ever after?

“We can talk every day on the phone or by text and Skype, right?” he asked anxiously.

I knew if I said yes, he’d call every day. Distance would be useless if I didn’t put my foot down.

“Once a week,” I told him. “Pick a day and we’ll talk then. This is our time to redefine our relationship.”

“I don’t want anything to change,” he complained. “I don’t want to see less of you or spend six fucking days a week not hearing your voice. Even thinking about doing it makes me feel sick.”

I understood how he felt because I was experiencing all the same anxiety, but I stood my ground.

“This is the way it needs to be for a while,” I answered. “You can like it or lump it, but I’m not backing down. Call me next Friday.”

When I went to leave, I let him hug me because friends hugged. I counted off five seconds and then pulled away. He tried to hold tighter, but I wiggled away. The benefits of being strong meant that he couldn’t keep me where I didn’t want to be.

“We can’t hug?” he asked in a panicked tone.

“We can,” I said calmly. “When I hug Tristan, it’s probably a two or three second process. I gave you five. Friends don’t hug for minutes at a time unless there’s a crisis.”

“This is a crisis! You’re fucking leaving me.”

I knew then that drawing it out any more was only going to make things worse. There were times when cutting something short was the way to go, and that moment was one of them.

“This isn’t a crisis,” I refuted calmly. “This is a reality. I’ll talk to you next week. Take care of yourself.”

I kept my chin up as I walked away, and I ignored him when he called out my name three separate times.
