I'm sorry but I was disappointed.


Where do I begin?

November, a girl who grew up in New York, moved to Tennessee when she was fed-up with her abusive single mom and was randomly attacked by a stranger. In her new home she finally reunited with her long-lost father. Eventually, she started working for his club, not as a stripper but as an office worker. There, she met the hottest guy on the planet-- Asher James Mayson, who has siblings that are equally hot. Asher is not only irresistible but
'Until November' has been sitting on my TBR for what seems like forever. I'd been meaning to start this series, but just never quite got around to it. When the audiobook went on sale, I decided to take the plunge with this one.

November has left New York City and headed south to live with her father following a brutal attack. She can't escape the feeling that she's being watched and hunted. Even when she arrives in her father's town, the eerie feeling hangs with her.

Glad to have her in his life,

This was such an amazingly fun read! I enjoyed it thoroughly! Funny, sexy, and exactly my type of NA read!

The story starts with twenty five year old November moving from her hometown of NYC to live in the south with her father. November isn’t leaving much... her mother is a mess and never really cared for her, and she has an ex-fiancée who, well... it’s a long story. Anyway, November didn’t even know who her father was until she was eighteen. Now she knows him, she w

I apologise in advance, this is a harsh review of the book. I was angry when I wrote this. It contains spoilers if you've not read the book.

Every page had some type of error. Either it was a spelling mistake, the author wrote one thing in one chapter then changed it in another, or a sentence wouldn't make sense. That really frustrates me, it's making me feel that authors now are getting too lazy to get the book edited properly or they're not even checking it over themselves. We'r

I must say I really liked this one…. Went in with a bit of trepidation as it has a lot of good reviews and the last book I read that had a lot of good reviews was a bit of a let-down for me. But I was pleasantly surprised. Yeah, he was a bit OTT Alpha but I did not mind. Saw a review that said it was kinda like KA – yes, a little bit.

It tried to be. It tried.
Quick, fluffy NA-like read with formulaic plot that drew out a couple of smiles and a lot of eye rolls. Writing typically without polish of editing or much development, but not without potential.

Some readers will luv the romance between the H/h. It's sugary sweet with a token dose of caveman.

By the end of the first chapter I was completely HOOKED!

When the book starts off we are introduced to November and her savior "Beast". She's been through a world of shit and is leaving the big city moving to Tennessee to live with her dad. A dad that she didn't know growing up with due to the most heinous bitch of a mom. November nearly lost her life, and if it hadn't been for a stray dog saving her.. she would have.

I think I just fell head over heels in complete LUST with Asher James Mayson. He is all hot alpha-male and complete caveman.

I remember seeing a quote of this posted on Facebook and it took about 0.2 seconds for some one-click action to occur. No reading anything about the book, not checking out the author… nada just this one quote…

I don't know what up with me lately but I seem to only read books that I've already read and found to be amazing. I guess it's just a phase but trusth is this story is one of my long time favourites. I simply love the alpha hero and the non-bullshit heroine that fit perfectly together. There is just the right amount of drama and even some action. Of course the romance is beautiful and even if this is a insta love/lust type of story, I still enjoy every page.

Okay. First of all--- ASHER. Go fuck yourself . The guy was a total controlling douchy creep. The insta love was sooo cringe worthy and I'm very confused on why the fuck everyone likes this. I'm not usually this mean in reviews but this is not something I'd recommend to ANYONE. I don't understand, the heroine with a stupid name (December, November, June, whatever), was a submissive boring little girl who only cared about her oh so loving creep of a boyfriend who tries to kidnap her on th

Having fed up with today's creepy romance tropes, I have been checking the books published between 2012-2016, hoping I could find better romance books but alas, I have come across another disaster!

This is the 2nd book I have tried from this author and it is once again a DNF! I think I have had enough of her writing and I’m never trying again.

I have seen so many good reviews from friends and groups I am in about this series.

But,there was just something that about this book that I did not connect to!

November - did not get her, she was a bit too "kooky" or she was meant to be. I am not sure. All the jumping up and down and clapping her hands! She was a bit daft too - (view spoiler)

I love this story and it's one of my most re-read books so of course I also had to add it to my audio re-reads. It was just as good as reading it, though I do have to say that it took a little bit of time to get into the narrator's voice since she just sounds a lot older than I imagine this character.

** 4.5 stars **

I enjoyed this romance so much! There was a possessive, crazy in love hero and a likable strong heroine. The story reminded me of Kristen Ashley in a good way, there was a nice long story told but no major misunderstandings. The story was sexy and sweet and fun to read. I am excited for the hero's brother's story that comes out next.

Just a warning, there were some editing issues with word usage and misspellings in case that bothers you.

Well, that was a really sweet and lovely story......

But for me to be honest with you, until the middle i wasn't so sure what i was feeling...

That story was having a very good basis but until the middle it was a little bit flat for me!!!

I might say that the thing that annoyed me very much was that Asher's and November's relation was running very fast and i didn't like the fact that from the very first moment he started to call her baby!!! For God's shake!!! It's too early, buddy! Calm down!!!!

Mindy Lou's Book Review
I read this book after a really angsty 5 book series and let me tell you, this was exactly what I needed to balance it out. I'm really into the bossy alpha men who go after what they want and Asher was perfection. November was a bit of a ditz but she was genuinely a nice person who didn't take too many things seriously. They complimented each other perfectly. I loved that the drama in this book was outside of the relationship and we got to see so much of the book with them together. I never get ...more
After a life riddled with lies and neglect, November is moving home to the father she only recently met. He is everything she had wished for in a parent and after being attacked in New York, she has packed up with the dog that saved her and is finally heading home.

It is a blur initially, meeting family members you never new existed. November is slightly anxious but the overwhelming welcome from her family makes her realize she made the right choice. Taking the job at her dad's work though as an

Loved this. You know sometimes when you start just start a book (and new author) and you love the feel from the beginning? Well this definitely gave me that happy feeling.

The Mayson brothers have a "curse". Once they find "the one" they feel it and feel it deep, she is his BOOM!

Asher and November were great. He's bossy, alpha, caveman and just does as he pleases with November, but oh so sweet and tender too. November was hilarious, strong, but knew when to give in to him, and come on,

Big fat no from me, by the time I gave up the dog was the only character I actually liked.

Writing style is a little clunky, and it just felt like a big ole Maddox Brothers rip off to me. The amount of over-the-top drama already thrown in has pretty much killed my interest (view spoiler) because none of it has really had any decent explanation or reason for it given.

Finished this one earlier, and I have got to say that the over all feel of this book was definitely similiar to KA's books and her Alpha males! I actually prefer this author better as her sentences don't run on or cut off like KA's do. There were parts to this story that I found to be corny, but all in all I enjoy this light read.

This is a series that involves the Mayson Brothers, this first book is about Asher and a young lady named November. I will write more of my review tomorrow as it is qui

Loved Asher even though he was a bit OTT but this one reminded me of KA so I'm not complaining. It did drag a bit at times but overall it was a sweet story with a hint of suspensed.
This was my first ARR and it won't be the last:)
