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.

Excerpt:  Until Jax
“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.

4 out of 5 stars 

Until Jax is the first book in the Until Him series, however it's tied into the Until Her series. For best reading enjoyment I'd suggest reading them in order as the characters make appearances in each other's books. 

Jax Mayson is the son of Cash and Lilly from Until Lilly, and we originally meet his girl, Ellie, in Until July. I absolutely adored Ellie and her little girl, Hope. And of course, Jax is as sexy as every Mayson man that has come before him. Ellie is Jax's "BOOM" which every Mayson man knows that BOOM will change your life forever. Ellie is no different because Jax falls hard for her and her daughter. Which, seriously, who wouldn't fall for the cutie that is Hope. 

Every single book that has been in about the Mayson family has been total book crack for me. Aurora Rose Reynolds has a fabulous series with the Mayson family because while each book has similar elements the stories are all different. Her characters are highly relate-able, well written, and completely fun. Her stories are what I'd call easy reads, low angst, fun yet has an element of action, and are almost always very, very sexy reads. 

Until Jax was a good story, just not one of my absolute favorites which bummed me out. I think I had such high expectations of this one because of his dad's story. That's not to say it's not a good story.. because it really is, it's still a solid 4 star read for me and I still loved the characters. So I recommend reading this one just for the sheer enjoyment of the sexiness that is Jax, and the adorable cuteness of Hope, and the strength and love that is Ellie.
