Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he’s

June's husband originally had the last name as Baristea in Until July and it changed in her own book to Barrister. (less)

After reading 9 ‘Until’ books, one thing I can say for certain is I never grow tired of feeling that BOOM. Aurora Rose Reynolds is the queen of insta-love. I’m not always a fan of it, but no one does it better than her. Kim and Sage’s book is one that I’ve been waiting on for the longest time. I’m so happy we finally got it! Sage and Kim both feel that BOOM but something happens after that that keeps them apart for a bit. Sage pushes Kim away and from the moment he finds out the tru

descriptionLOVE this cover! One, it is SMOKIN' HOT. The model on the cover is a really good representation of Sage. The composition is pretty good and the typography is unique and eye-catching.description

descriptionI feel like I have been waiting FOREVER for this book. If you have read some of the other books, then you know exactly who Kim and Sage are, and you know the clusterfuck that tore them apart. I couldn't wait for this one because I expected mucho chasing and groveling on Sage's part for being such an asshole to Kim.

Based on the perceptions I got from other books that cameoed this pair, I thought I was in for a pretty dramatic new adultish kind of vibe but I was happy with how this story turned out. Sage and Kim have an immediate spark that gets smothered pretty quickly when Sage makes a mistake that sends Kim running. The spark, however, doesn't get extinguished and catches once again when the pair are brought together after some trouble. The plot was entertaining, if a little far fetched.

The BOOM is back, and Aurora Rose Reynolds does it again with Until Sage. Sage and Kim were brought together and then ripped apart. But what happens when they get a second chance?

“In the twenty-four hours we spent together, you gave me a taste of something beautiful, and the memories of those moments have haunted me since I walked away from you."

Anytime I hear that there is going to be another installment of this amazing series, I can't help the cheesy smile that I get. The Mayson's are one of my favorite family of any series that I have read to date. They are loving, strong and supportive. They stick together and never let anyone struggle alone. I hope they keep having babies so we never have to say goodbye.

I liked Sage and Kim. As you know from previous stories, there is a

"He has the ability to become the sun I so desperately need in order to survive, and I'm afraid if I allow myself to feel all that warmth, when he's gone, I won't be able to live in the shadows."

If you find a good thing, stick with it!  That's my motto when it comes to reading ARR books.  I love her formula - Strong, bossy, beautiful, alpha-males who fall for strong feisty woman who can handle them.  It's pure magic.  After each book, I love and crave even more!

2.5 stars, but I clicked 3 because it was safe.

The hero was celibate during separation and I believed in his feelings for the heroine.

His outbursts were NOT ok.
I could somehow understand the 1st one, but when he shouted at her because of her illness, respectively that she didn’t tell him, it was too much.
I would have hurt him physically and never forgave him so easily.

I needed GROVEL. G.R.O.V.E.L. There was almost none. Meh.

Dear girls, when a man apologizes, please DON’T underestimate it.

Kimberly Cullen is a hair stylist living in Tennessee who was raised by wonderful parents. After some health issues she learns she's adopted & has a twin sister. She has fabulous friends, & had recently started seeing a gorgeous guy named Sage Mayson. Almost as soon as they've started, they end when a misunderstanding causes Sage to push her away. He quickly learns he made a huge mistake, but it's too late. Kim is angry & hurt, and not willing to forgive him.

I'd like to preface this review by saying my expectations totally got the best of me when it came to this book. I tried my hardest to stay objective, but alas, when you spend years waiting for a particular character, expectations happen. That's not to say I didn't enjoy this book, because I really did. I read it in one sitting after all.

It had been ages since I read an Aurora Rose Reynolds novel. I still check her new books and I do own some of them, because I loved the books I’ve read. I read this book because I was in the mood for the famous Mayson boom. Until Sage had everything I expect in a novel by this author. It was fast paced, sexy, sweet and a little emotional. This book also has a beautiful epilogue. I adore the author’s epilogues.

Sage has been adopted, so he didn’t think he would experience the Mayson boom, but he d

This was a nice read that went by way too quickly in my opinion! We learn from previous books that Sage and Kim have brief relationship and fall apart due to a misunderstanding. The previous foreshadowing starts this book off and Sage must ask for forgiveness and get his girl back.

Unfortunately we don't see much grovelling on Sage's part and Kim forgives quite quickly. After they kiss and make up we follow their relationship as they deal with starting over what they had and coping wit

Warning: spoilers abound.

Until Sage struck me as being only somewhat better than its predecessor, Until Ashlyn. But, on the whole, I found the book to be a disappointing mess—a humdrum, mind-numbingly boring read.

I think these newer books, a spin-off of the original Until series, are geared more toward readers who’ve read the books in order of publication. While each book is a standalone, featuring a different couple each time, I think the author assumes too much, by which I mean she seems to be
Mindy Lou's Book Review
I loved Sage! This is one of my more favorite books in the series. Sage had a pretty calm and quiet personality. It seemed that the only thing that riled him up was Kim, but in a good way. He pretty much made this book for me. I liked Kim but she was way too stubborn and pushed back on things that seemed silly. Despite that, I liked these two together and enjoyed reading their about them.

I can’t get enough of Aurora Rose Reynolds’s heartwarming stories. They are always sweet, sexy, emotional and steamy and her characters satisfy on every levels. I would probably say the same of every book written by this author, each and everyone of her stories are just simply amazing. And she writes heroes that are incredible in every way that counts.

Sage and Kim’s story was beautiful and one of my favorite types of reads, a simple romance where you have two strong characters who don't make yo

I really love both Kim and Sage. They both made mistakes throughout but I understood where each of them were coming from. Let me just say, this cover is so freaking delicious and this is exactly how I pictured Sage. It if course was awesome to catch up with the Mayson clan. It always feels like being with old friends reading one of ARR's books. Looking forward to Harmony and Harlan. I may need to do a reread of the book that started their journey. Until June, maybe? ...more

I love this author and I have read all the books in this series and the other series. That's a lot books and I can honestly say, that I am still not bored with them. All these books have possessive alpha men and a heavy case of insta-love, which I don't even mind.

That said, this wasn't my favorite of the series. I enjoyed it.... I just didn't love it as much as I did all the others.

This book is a confusing one for me because I really enjoyed reading about Sage and Kim but I did have some issues with the overall story, so choosing a rating was hard.

It was a ok read.
I was a little disappointed with the development of the plot and I feel like I missed something, but I can't point out what.
I wanted more details of mistaken identity with her sister and about the fight of them and also about the disease of our heroine.
He had to grovel a bit more.
And also more details about the murder of her twin sister.
The author put some mixed dramas (separated twins, adoption, drugs, alcohol, serious illness, birth mother addicted) to spice up this history
Another great Aurora Rose Reynolds read! I truly enjoy her style of writing as it flows so easily without ever bogging down while giving me a romance story that deals with some of live's issues. They always end with a happy ever after despite being a series and I love that!

I really loved this one. Sage was a huge alpha which ARR is know for. Kim was sweet and forgiving. There was a lot of emotion in this one that I wasn't expecting and it took me for a nice surprise.

I read Miss Reynolds Until series before. And I remember I DNF the book. I thought I give it another try with Until Sage. But it still does not work for me. I am having difficulty connecting with the characters. I feel the characters, Kim and Sage do not have any connection at all. The sex scenes are cold. The story is all over the place. I think Miss Reynolds want to build a bit suspense/ climax on revealing the major plot. What I get is confusion.

"Until Sage" was a nice reading but I hoped for something more....???

my heart had at some point claimed her as its own.

Once again I'm gonna say that I love ARR and her books so damn much, so I'm expecting more from her whenever something new comes up! I love her OTT possessive alpha males, her BOOMs, the sassy and funny heroines, the hot heroes that are ready to claim their women since the first moment, all that are in my list for

I will never, ever get enough of ARR's books! I know, I know...never say never. But Aurora will always be the exception. I've read every Until book, and they just keep getting better, and better!

Until Sage was beautifully written - a powerful love story with all the feels! The character dynamic between Sage and Kim sparked the pages, and sizzled throughout the entire story. I love how Aurora mixes the emotional elements of lust and intrigue wit

Until Sage is the second book in the Until Him series by Aurora Rose Reynolds. It's the fifth off spring book (Until Her/Until Him) from the Until series.

Sage Mayson was the gorgeous, hunky alpha son of Nico and Sophie from book four in the Until series. It's another Mayson "boom" where he knew immediately that he met his soul mate but convincing her of the same was the challenge.
