Out of all the spin-offs ARR is doing with her ‘Until’ books, Until Jax was the one I was most excited to read. Why? Because it’s JAX! Jax is Lilly and Cash’s son and their book has always been my favorite. Lets be real though, I love every ‘Until’ book written by Aurora Rose Reynolds. I just can’t help it I LOVE that fucking BOOM! Yes it’s insta-love always. I don’t even care. I love these books. These Mayson boys are in charge and when they fall hard and get their BOOM, they

I love Aurora and so far all the books I have read by her! I love her characters and her stories are refreshing! Because of the way this one starts some may not like it as there is insta-love from Jax's part. But you know what? For me it doesn't matter at all because I like the story and this wasn't a problem for me!

She's mine. She may not understand it- hell, I don't even know if I understand it- but she was made for me.

Aurora Rose Reynolds books always have been and will continue to be my guilty pleasure. A little fluffy, a lot steamy and with a dose of insta love, I don't know any other author that can pull all that off in one book and actually make me enjoy it. Something about this boys and their "booms". I can't even explain it. But I like it.

This was my first Aurora Rose Reynolds read and I loved it! I read this in one sitting (the time flew by) and totally immersed myself in this story. While this is the first book in the series and it could be read as a standalone, I was a bit confused for the first bit. It seemed as though it picked up right where another book ended. My guess is you should read July’s book first as July and Ellie share a connection in both being abducted. The story starts right after both July and Ell

I have never read this author before, so this is a fresh start for me. This is the start of a new series, that being said I felt at the beginning like I didn't know what was going on but once the story enveloped and progressed I picked it up pretty quickly. Although I will definitely be reading from the beginning when I get the chance.

So what's it about?

The BOOM strikes again! This is insta-love at it's finest.
I rate it 4.5 "Cock-Porn" Stars

In a nutshell this is an insta-love, low angst, read with plenty of drama. Jax gets hits by the boom as soon as he sees Ellie. Although she doesn't verbalize her feelings for him until later, she was definitely feeling it too. If you're not a fan of insta everything, move on because things progress rather quickly in
DNF @ 60%. Audiobook version.The book starts and I have no clue what's going on so I'm guessing it's preceded by one that would have it all make sense. The author doesn't do a good job of explaining how Jax even came to be in Ellie's life at all. I'm not a fan of Jax. He uses his mom to convince Elle to stay using her fear against her. He threatens Ellie saying he will "give her orgasms until she apologizes" for being insecure about him and his role with her daughter. He is little more than a st ...more

Warning: this book may have you going back to read the entire Until Series. That’s right after I finished Until Jax I was dying for more and wanting to know everyone, so I went back and binge read the entire series. Now, I love Jax even more.

Jax is Lilly and Cash’s son and knows all too well about the Mayson Boom. He has heard the stories about these Mayson’s seeing the girl they are meant to be with and falling in love immediately, but never believed it. That is until he met Ellie Anthony.

"You were made for me. You're everything I never knew I wanted."

Jax Mayson finds his boom when he meets Ellie while saving his cousin, July. Not giving her a chance to get away he moves her and her daughter in with him to give her a fresh start and immediately puts them in his family fold. Ellie has never been with a man like Jax before and isn't used to his Alpha, bossy ways so she has a lot of adjusting to do. But can she open herself up and let him in before it's too late and can

But is was a DNF @ 56 %. I felt that there was no plot whatsoever. No conversation, too much "Babe" and "Jax" that I stopped counting.
I was also really bored.

This was just an ok read for me again. I’m finding this next generation series to be flat compared to all their parents stories in the “Until” series. Im just not able to feel very connected with the main characters. I’m going to take a bit of a break and come back to this series later!

I loved this book and hated for it to end. The chemistry between Jax and Ellie is boiling hot. Their story together was a page turner and offered such a satisfying ending. It was beyond touching, emotional, and intense.

Ellie had to handle parenting on her own at the very young age of 19. She did not have plans to become a mother, certainly not at that young age. Every day has been a challenge, but there was something about the situation that made her smile: her sweet daughter! Until Jax. When h

Until Jax kicks off the first in the Until Him Series, a spin-off of the Until Series with ties to the Until Her Series.

Jax Mayson is the son of Cash and Lilly – remember Until Lily? That amazing second chance romance? OMG. I was dying to get Jax’s story after seeing him in Until July and his first encounter with Ellie.

Jax has known about the BOOM all his life, he’s heard the stories from his father and uncles, but he’s experiencing it firsthand, for the first time. He knew the instant he saw E

I can't blame anyone but myself for this. After the failure of Until July I told myself that the Until series was no longer for me. However the teasers did their job in teasing and I went into this with an open mind. Early on my reasons for hesitating came flooding back. The whispering, the growling, the soft faces, the clenching, the whimpering... Unfortunately I wasn't able to move pass it enough to allow myself to find it an enjoyable read.

Unfortunately this book wasn't a winner for me. I was bored most of the time which is sad because I LOVE Aurora Rose's books! I loved the alpha males, the romance, the instalove and their banters in her previous books..
BUT this one didn't work out for me like I wanted to!
If felt like the story was like a copy of her previous ones which were much better!

I couldn't connect with Ellie or Jax , but still - He was HOT! !

Jax and Ellie were just so sweet. Throw in little Hope and they made the cutest little family.

Jax Mayson was a fantastic hero. He is kind, caring and oh so sexy. He knows immediately upon seeing Ellie that she is his BOOM. Now he has to convince her that he won't break her heart. He was so patient with Ellie and Hope.

This book was cute. There are times in the book where I was confused as hell and definitely at the very end I was so lost I reread it about three times before I just gave up.

Honestly, I thought I would have been good with just rereading Until July but now I think I should have reread Cash and Lily's or Nico and Sophie's and who ever else in the Until series because I swear my brain hurts from just trying to remember everything and everyone. I spent most of it squinting my eyes and saying, ha? W
