He was my best friend, my best not-really-big-brother, and my best protector.

He was my best everything.

He was mine.

Coming home is hard for Lane. Hard because Harry, her beloved uncle, has died suddenly, but also because of him. Kale.

Kale Hunt has been her best friend since childhood. But it was never that simple. He was Lane’s reason for leaving home and moving to New York

**I received a complimentary ARC from the publisher, through, in exchange for honest feedback.** (That being said, I also checked the Audible edition out as a Kindle Unlimited selection and that is the version that I read/listened to.)

Right from the start, I was intrigued with Lane's story. Returning to her home in England for her Uncle Harry's funeral, it is clear that there are oodles of unresolved issues between her, her family and Kale, the man who broke her heart. The tension

"Until Harry is like nothing you have ever read from L.A. Casey before. It is a story of love, loss and finding yourself in the darkest of times."


Until Harry releases on July 19th, 2016, and is now available to pre-order on Amazon. Below are the pre-order links as well as a small excerpt from the novel and picture teasers :)

Overall Opinion: This was an ok read. I was in the mood for angsty, and I got it! I thought it was a little OTT drama at times, because a lot of it could've easily been fixed with a little communication. I didn't love it, and I didn't hate it. I had some issues with the pacing and closure (see below spoilers), but it served its purpose and squeezed out a few tears for me. I'd say it was a "just ok" 3 star read.

Review to come (if I can ever get over my distaste for Kale to bother writing it) but I did NOT like Kale. He didn't deserve her. He loved another woman and chose that woman over Lane. Over & over, for years. This was definitely about unrequited love on Lane's part for years. Kale was a weak coward who never fought for Laney.

After 5 starring Aideen I had high hopes for this "love" story but it was a complete & utter fail for me. I looked forward to this author's loyal (faithful) and crazy in lov

I really can't believe that this book has an over 4 rating.
This book is a walking cliche, with added drama/angst for the shake of just adding angst, boring talks, and no depth. I'd really love to read something that I haven't read before, but if I do, I'd really like - at least - for it to be beautifully written.
My review can't be spoiler-free, so here it is :

In the interest of full disclosure, I'm gonna tell how and why I was able to read this book even though previous books from this author (the ones I read, obviously), failed to impress me.

It's kinda embarrassing but I thought I was requesting a book by Elle Casey.

I actually cried whilst reading this book but not because of Lane. I think it was the general circumstance of unrequited love.

I'm not sure if it was the helplessness of the situation which left me reeling or Lane's feelings which were able to convey the sheer intensity of pain she was feeling. Books like this are angsty, and often don't leave me with enough retribution. Retribution is important.

Kale was a coward who belittled Lane's self-worth. He was unworthy of being titled the love of her li

This book is full of everything that made me fall in love with Kale and Lane to begin with. It shows flashes back to them as they were growing up and facets of their lives that made the couple and the individuals. Perfect people these are not, by a long shot, which is why they are so close to my heart already. I can identify with them in so very many ways, all of them, not just the heroine. If love a good romantic story with depth and intense feelings, this book is for you.

Until Harry by L.A. Casey

L.A. Casey has written a one of the best books I have read this year! This book is a must read, Until Harry is heart breaking, traumatic, cry your eyes out kind of book and have to say it is truly an amazing story. The writing is suburb and you won't be able to put this book down. ( unless your wiping your tears away.) First thing to do before you start reading Until Harry is get your Kleenex ready.

I'm going to be repetitive as usual when it comes to this. Friends=lovers, from a very young age, is something I adore... in this case, Kale is 9 & Lane is 6. So, without a doubt I loved it.

Oh, It's meee!

Kale was best friends with Lane even though she had older brothers it was she that he hung with and protected. She was only 6 and crushin' on him big time. Is that possible? At that age I didn't pay attention to boys, it's cute~ish. To each his own I suppose.

Tissue alert! I think I cried for a large part of this book but it was too good to put down.

Lane and Kale have a very long friendship that is filled with love and riddled with trouble and pain. All young men could take a page out of his book with her growing up and all girls should always have someone like him to stand for them. Eventually though life gets too hard and in the way since one is older than the other and their lives as most do move in different directions.

This is what I felt reading this book Honestly everyone in the book got on my nerves there was so much unnecessary drama when it didn't have to happen and the love the hero and heroine had for each other I did not believe it for one minute and when they finally got together it was in the last chapter so I couldn't even invest in them

Also the brother Lochlan What the hell is that dude on steroids or something every time he was mention the guy was screaming and getting mad he really needed a slap

A sweet, emotional & angsty read. Two soulmates who meet again after 6 years after heaps of heartbreak and sadness.
Main characters had an intense connection and i loved the supportive family members. Overall a worth-your-time read.

Lane and Kale had grown up together they were best friends. Lane had always loved Kale and as she grew older those feelings increased they didn't diminish. She thinks that Kale would never see her as more than his best friend, she hates seeing him with the girls he dates. But when Kale gets Drew pregnant Lane knows she can't stay and watch him play happy families with another girl so she moves and tries to make a new life in New York leaving everything that's dear to her behind in England.

Until Harry was a beautiful story that was masterfully put together. Raw, intense, and poetic, L.A. Casey weaved a heartfelt tale that has embedded itself into my heart forever. My only wish is that I could read it again, but for the first time so I can go on the emotional ride Casey takes us on.

I’ve read and been devoured by every single one of Casey’s books, but this story… it’s a personal favorite. I’m grateful Casey wrote Until Harry and put so much heart and soul into telling it.

I am a HUGE LA Casey fan and this book proves exactly why I am. Her Slater brother series is one of my favourites of all time and I was so excited to read this standalone.

This book made me ugly cry so hard - it broke me and put me back together again.

Synopsis: (From the blurb:)

Kale Hunt has been her best friend since childhood. But it was never that simple. He was Lane’s reason for leaving home and moving to New York. Seeing him with someone else, in love with someone else, shouldn’t have hurt. But it did. It really, really did. So she upped sticks and left, started a new life and cut herself off from her past.

But now she’s back and all the feelings are right there. A

This wasn't what I thought it was going to be...

It's a good book, and if you like angsty stories or already a fan of Casey then I think you'll like it. Unfortunately ansty isn't my thing. Either are flashback stories. I thought that this book was set in present time where the two main characters were trying to find their way back together. Eh, nope. I also can't stand OW/OM that are in picture a lot of the time. This is a lot of negatives for a book I rated 3 stars. I want to be fair and honest

I didn't like heroine one bit. She was an emotional wreck and made her family members' life miserable too.

Hero was also hard to like and understand. His lack of courage and indecision of what he wants made situation worse.

I was almost DNF it but because of l do it a lot and wanted to see how resolve their issues. It wasn't get better, l don't think l'll try another book of this author.

I have only read one book by this author before and I have enjoyed her books. The only thing I don't like about her stories is they are only in first person with the females side. Until Harry is 100% drama and told only from the female heroine's side.

Lane (heroine) and Kale (hero) grew up together and there families were super close. They were best friends and well Lane fell in love and Kale fell in something. I don't really want to spoil too much there. Suffice to say they have a very intense
