I could sit here all day and talk about Until I Met You. I could talk about my love of Judith Boehler and her feistiness, her strength, her goodness, and her ability to see life in every individual moment. I could talk about my extreme crush on Taylor Barrett. I could talk for hours about how Taylor made my heart skip a beat with his amazing words, his kind heart, his dash of alpha, and his drive.

Then, I could sit and talk to you about Jude and Hazel. The epic love story of two people that shou

“Love wasn’t about reason. Love wasn’t rational. The heart charged forth with love on its wings to spite the possibility of the bloodshed aftermath.”

Wow…..This book…..I am completely and utterly blown away by what I have just read. This book is so real. So unique. So refreshing. It is unlike anything that I’ve read all year.

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of S.L. Scott’s books. So, when I hear that she’s coming out with a new book, I can’t wait to get my hands on it. And this one was no excep

First off, Until I Met You is a book that everybody has to read as it was such an amazing read and keeps you engrossed right till the very last page and you can't help but hope that everything will work out in Taylor and Jude's favour and that the rest of the characters can just go jump off a bridge for all you care and that they can leave Taylor and Jude alone to be happy and live their lives in peace. The book starts off with Jude in a room and at first glance we think it is a prison type room ...more

This was such a charming and refreshingly different story. I've read several of SL Scott's books, and this was her best written book to date!

The story of Jude & Hazel (the double dipper and the architect) was such a roller coaster. The storyline was very different and a welcome change to all of the same old boring stories out there. I fell in love with Jude's character. She was so peculiar yet endearing. I really enjoyed reading about her and the quirks that made her so lovable.

Wow!! What a journey!

SL Scott has outdone herself! This book was so different from anything I've read. I was sad, then happy, then confused, anxious, worried...I was all over the place!

Hazel and Jude's story is a beautiful one! It was a wild roller coaster ride of emotions, but so,so worth it!

Every once in awhile a book comes along that reminds me exactly why I love reading so damn much; the beauty and the emotion that flows through each sentence, pours from the characters and dances across my mind and heart in complete awe and produces that giddy excitement when thinking about writing the review because you just NEED people to read this book...this is it. Until I Met You is such a stunning and moving read, contrasting brilliantly between a sweet whimsical romance and a much more int ...more

There are times you finish a book and you literally take a deep breath because you have survived a myriad of emotions. Ones that left you heartbroken, desperate, and often with a large pit in your stomach. Until I Met You is one such book. An angst-filled, gorgeously written journey that filled my heart with such joy, I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

This is by far SL Scott's most ambitious book to date. She dug deep. Real deep and gave us a love story that had me in knots for most

Until I Met you is unlike any book I have ever read. It is refreshingly different. It is captivating and original. Scott has a way of story telling that is eloquent and beyond words. She never fails to disappoint. She took a chance and stepped outside of her box with this epic and beautiful love story.

I loved that this story had all the things! Passion. Drama. Heartache. Laughs. Sexiness. The feels. I felt them!




I felt them from deep within my heart and soul.

This book was incredible. This is the Queen of Tease (S.L. Scott) at her best! It was quirky because of the characters, which makes them enduring to your heart. There were enough emotions to be all consuming. This book is light on number of sexual interludes but hot with sensual tension! A modern day Romeo and Juliet.

This is a book that talks about what real love is. Love is hard, Love is happiness, love is heartache, love is funny.

A tearjerker. I cried when they were perfect and when in turmoi

I received an ARC for an honest review. Let me tell you honestly this book is FANTASTIC. You just need to be ready to ride the emotional roller coaster. I laughed, cried and a few times my heart was literally hurting. I have never wanted to skip to the end of a book as bad as I did while reading "Until I Met You". This is a stop what you are reading book and read this now. I am going to leave you with my favorite line in the book. Have tissues and wine and lock and enjoy Taylor and Jude's journe ...more

4.5 stars!

I love it when a book surprises me. I was expecting a story about star crossed lovers and instead got a book about two unlikely people who somehow manage to find each other in the chaos of their lives. It's the perfect love story of two very hurt and flawed people who are perfect when they are together.

Saying I loved Taylor and Jude is an understatement. Of course it didn't start off that way. Now don't get me wrong, it's not that I didn't like them, it's just that I wasn't sure what w

I ADORE This book. It took me by surprise, many, many times. It’s aptly described as Epic Love Story and that is absolutely no exaggeration. Until I Met You has that “epic feel’ from the beginning. Within the first few pages I felt a bit giddy. When Judith ( “call me Jude, my family does…”) Boehler and Taylor (Hazel - as nicknamed by Jude )Barrett meet it is one of those scenes from a party that so perfectly captured and completely telling. Immediately you get a feel for Jude’s character. She’s ...more

It's not all rainbows and butterflies, this book. Think: darker, edgier, more "adult" version of Flat-Out Love featuring a Celeste-like character, just ... slightly more... twisted. But even that description doesn't really do this story justice.

I just wrote a review about how unmemorable a book that I recently read was for me. That was a fun and light read. But maybe it's the darker things that remain with you. Haunt you. Linger.

I always have believed that... Life is a chaos, life is a mess. Is the way it is until we meet that person, who makes us complete.

I always have believed that the broken people are the ones who have the most beautiful hearts.

And I have to say that S.L. Scott, reaffirmed what I have thought all my life.

Life is a matter of living like you're going to die tomorrow, that is what everyone says. But inside us we have scars and wounds that are those rocks that held us back.

Sigh. This book just didn't do it for me. I think the one main issue was, I never really believed the connection between the two main characters. I'm not sure why. Maybe because it was so rushed? It didn't really work for me as far as a romance. There were some sweet moments but at a certain point I started to skim so I could get to the action and see how the story ended. Taylor felt like such a pushover with his ex and 'friend' throughout the whole book too. It made me want to smack him. Some o ...more

I received this Arc in promise that I would give an honest review. I loved every page!! Great story line and even better main characters. I fell in love with "Hazel & Jude" immediately!! So mush deep emotion and sadness carries a young woman through years abuse both mentally and physically. "Until she meets Hazel". Hazel has his own physical problems to deal with but finds a spark of light in Jude's eyes which he can't live without. Will Jude find a way to break the chains her family has placed ...more

This book rocked my world!
This book blew me away.
I can't form words to relay how amazing it was.It's very well written and a total mindfuck, gut wrenching, It messes with your head, it tugs at your heart. It's brilliant.
The story was engaging with great writing, it will have you anxiously flipping to the very last page.

It is was so refreshing to read such an original story! I have never read anything like it and it totally sucked me in. I felt completely lost and confused in the beginning, but let me assure is so worth it!! I view this book as a journey and it is totally worth the ride. You will laugh, cry, get heated up, and completely confused. But in the end you will feel the beauty of the story and will be in love with the characters!!! Well done SL Scott!!!!

This was different. In all kind of ways different.

Yes, it was insta-love but it wasn’t instant insane insta-love. It was more total instant connection that when you have a sunshine day it has to be the real thing.

The writing was good in a way that gave you enough to not keep you crazy. But at the same time think you are crazy.

I think a lot of personal issues were heavy and deep and kept the read very dark. With some great sweet sentimental moments and feelings. Even though I think this was inst

**I received an ebook ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review**

I can’t say enough good things about this book.

As soon as Jude and Hazel meet, they embark on a whirlwind romance. Each of them has secrets, but their love overwhelms the bad, bypasses the logic, and sends them both on a life changing journey.

This book was pure poetry. I’ve been reading Scott’s work since before she started publishing, and this is very much a departure from what I’ve come to expect from her. But, it’s a

This is one of those books that surprises the hell out of you. I love S.L. Scott's books so I was pretty confident I would enjoy Until I Met You, but she absolutely blew my mind with this story!

This little book reminded me of Breakfast at Tiffany's and On a Clear Day You Can See Forever and Raintree County. In other was beautiful and it was tragic. There was something so lovely in the fragility of these two characters. They were both separate from their surroundings in that they found themselves in impossible situations, yet still living among the "typical folks". It was almost like they were in a snow globe within Central Park. There was a little trap door in the snow globe ...more

Let me tell you, UNTIL I MET YOU was a book that completely threw me for a loop.

Jude and Taylor were two people who had been failed by their family and the circle of friends/society they belonged to. The people who were supposed to embrace them and protect them let them each down in spectacular fashion. It wasn't until they found each other at a dinner party that they both began to understand what they needed and exactly what had been miss

I cannot thank SL Scott enough for asking me if I would like an ARC of Until I Met You. It was fantastic! Really, really great. SL really did an amazing job and should be proud of herself.

Until I Met You is the story of Jude and Taylor. Two people who are meant to be together but face many obstacles. Two beautiful souls. Two people who are imperfect yet perfect. Their story is beautiful. Even with all the ups and downs. It’s emotional, it’s passionate, it’s romantic, and it’s gut wrenching. Read

This book REALLY touched me!!!

I've NEVER read a book like this before!!! The writing, the characters, the plot, ALL OF IT!!!


Whenever Hazel and Jude were together my heart smiled. They have an EPIC romance that is rare and one everyone dreams of having, myself included. Jude was an architect who has Parkinson's disease and Jude was this quirky and carefree woman. Both characters were EXTREMELY likable and I fell in love with them.


Of course there's Jude's HORRIBLE family and other characters tha

When I first finished Hazel and Jude's story, I wasn't 100% on my reaction. But now having sat on my feelings for a few days, and realizing I can still hear them in my head, I know this story will stay with me for a long time.

What a sad, heartbreaking and memorable story. Both Taylor (Hazel) and Jude have endured so much. Jude, poor sweet Jude; my heart is broken for her and all she has experienced. She has been beaten down by her circumstance so many times, yet manages to carry on. She is stron
