Meet Jax and Ellie in this instalove, alpha romance!
Until Jax is LIVE!#Boom
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.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!
What I say: Until Jax is full of love, romance, drama and naughtiness. The book works as standalone. I haven't read Until July (yet), but I've been assured that Until Jax starts right after the ending of book one. The previous events are dealt with quite quickly and so it isn't too difficult to catchup.
Without spoilers: Ellie is safe after surviving a horrific ordeal and is struggling to rebuild her life. Jax is instant drawn to Ellie and is determined to look after her and win her love.
Ellie and Jax have a lot of issues they need to resolve if they're going to find their own HEA. Ellie has to deal with recent issues and people to look after, but she's drawn to Jax. Max has to work hard to convince her to give him a shot - oh the drama!
I liked the secondary characters and would be interested to discover what happens next with Sage and Kim. Jax's Mum and a certain little cutie made me smile - I loved them together.
I'm not usually a fan of insta-love, in face I'm generally very opposed to it, but Jax won me over with his "Boom!" moment and I actually liked seeing such a determined guy fight for the woman he wants. My cynical brain probably wouldn't accept this outside of fiction but I did like the story.
Until Jax is a short, feel good read, which is perfect for brightening up a cold evening.

“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 f**k 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.
“F**king 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.
