This book started off extremely slow and oh so very confusing. After a couple of chapters, I figured out why. Although this book is marketed as #1 in the Until Him series, this is actually a spin off. Some of the characters were previously introduced. I couldn’t figure out for the life of me why Jax was so in love with Ellie. Well, now I know why. As a suggestion from one reader to another, I highly suggest that you do read Ms. Reynold’s Until series before embarking on this one.
While I did like all of the characters in this installment, my favorite had to be Hope. Hope is Ellie’s daughter. In order to better understand Hope and Ellie, I would have to include spoilers, which I never do. The discovery is flushed out early on in the book. Ellie has gone through some hard times and is surprised and awed that Jax and his family love her unconditionally.
While I have nothing against this book or the author, I’m not sure if I will read further in this series. The story was sweet, romantic, and had just an edge of angst for me. However, other characters just didn’t hold my interest enough to invest in this series.
Thanks to Tantor Media for giving me this audio in exchange for an honest review.
