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.
THIS was just the fix I was looking for! Another badass alpha hero sneaks his way into our hearts in UNTIL JAX. Prepare to get HOT under the collar because the sexual tension is OFF THE CHARTS!
Before I go any further, I need to warn you that you DO need to read UNTIL JULY before you start this book. I know this is labeled as Book 1 in the UNTIL HIM series, but believe me, you need to start with Book 1 in the UNTIL HER series to be caught up at the beginning of UNTIL JAX.
Ok, back to it! Jax Mayson has experienced his BOOM with Ellie Anthony. I love this whole BOOM concept with this family. It’s INSTA-LOVE, but I freaking ADORE it! Yes, it is instant for Jax, but it’s not for Ellie, so you get to experience the journey of her falling for this beautiful alpha male. I’m not a fan of overuse of terms of endearment, but it works for me with Jax. He says ‘baby’ all the time, and each time my heart flutters. I also love Jax’s confidence. He knows what he wants in his future, and Ellie is IT. No more, no less. He just needs to spend his time protecting her, and convincing her that this is the real deal. It’s cute, it’s so alpha, and I expect nothing less from the amazing Ms. Reynolds.
Ellie has secrets. Jax wants her trust. Enemies get closer, and the Mayson crew is ready for battle. Ellie is one of theirs now, and they will stop at nothing to stand by Jax’s side and take on whatever threat might linger.
UNTIL JAX is full of drama, scorching hot love scenes, and beautiful moments. I will never get enough of this amazing family and the new characters that pop up in every book. The family dynamic is so tight and makes me envious of what they share. They are always there for each other no matter what. It is just a beautiful experience with every new read. Full of ALPHA-GOODNESS and emotional and erotic scenes, this is one read you DO NOT want to pass up. So go forth and purchase, your lady parts will thank me later!
“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.
