When newly divorced Kate Adams is approached on the sunny deck of a California hotel by hockey star David Burke, and he invites her to dinner, she almost says no. He’s obviously younger than her. And charming. And drop dead gorgeous. But there’s also something sweet about David, so Kate—who hasn’t done anything spontaneous in a very long time—accepts his invitation.

It is,

Until You is by Jeannie Moon. I won this book in a prize package in a give a way.

It is Kate Nicholls fortieth birthday and she is sitting alone at a bar at a hotel on the beach in California drinking wine, and crying. She’s not crying because she is forty, although that is part of it. Her divorce from her now ex-husband, Richard, has just become final. Richard left her ten months ago for his mistress. Even though she has had plenty of time to mourn the loss of her marriage, having these final

I picked this book up randomly the other night because I was drawn to the premise and I started reading the first few pages out of curiosity and never stopped until the very end! It’s safe to say that I enjoyed it and was quite invested in these characters’ story which was a sweet, heart-warming romance about a forty year old heroine who just got out of an ugly marriage, and a famous, sexy (younger) professional hockey player who fell head over heels for her and

I hate not finishing a book, and this one held such promise in it's synopsis.

I was expecting a romance between a forty year old divorcee and a twenty-nine year old Pro Ice Hockey player when I started Until You, who due to their age differences (amongst other things) have to deal with a few bumps in the road along the way. Sadly that isn't the only thing going on in the book, and it became secondary for most of the part I read.

Liked but didn't love.

I thought this had a lot of potential...there were aspects to it that personally interested me...a 40 year old divorcee with a 17 year old daughter (parallels a bit of my own life) and a younger hot athlete (unfortunately that part doesn't parallel my life...hehe).

The beginning was great. How they met and the night they spent together. It wasn't just the sex was actually really sweet as well, just learning and talking to each other. There was a genuine

I was lucky to get an advance copy of this book.

Kate Nicholls’ picture perfect world as a wife, mother, well known author and teacher has come to a crashing end very unexpectedly. After years of abuse her husband has left her for another woman, their daughter hates her and on her 40th birthday she slept with a 29 year old. Not just any 29 year old, a well known hockey player that her 17 year old daughter has a serious crush on.

Review by Natasha Gentile

So for those of you who don’t know I’m going to be 40 this year. Not really looking forward to it, but it’s happening if I want it to or not. I also love hockey, so this book was a no brainer for me.

Kate spent her 40th birthday in a hotel bar overlooking the Pacific Ocean, celebrating the milestone with a bottle of red wine and her divorce papers.

Nothing says happy fortieth like your ex saying he wants a divorce and he’s leaving you for a newer younger model.

Jeannie Moon has outdone herself with this fantastic book. I couldn't put it down until I finished. Kate is a high school teacher and a successful novelist who has just been divorced by her lying, cheating husband. She is picked up in a bar by 29-year-old hockey player, David, on her 40th birthday. I love the way Ms. Moon let us see the relationships between each of the characters in the story and the heartache and rebuilding between Kate and her daughter, Laura. Such intensity!

It's very rare that I DNF a book. Like maybe once a year, if that. I know what I like and I'm good at choosing what I read. Which makes this one all the more disappointing because this sounded so right up my alley. But instead I got ridiculous drama and misunderstandings and a main character that was totally annoying.

The two main characters met in CA, spent the night together, and totally connected (naturally). That's okay, though - I can get on board with that. But when they realize

I was fortunate to have read an early version of this book and it blew me away. Kate and David are very real and honestly portrayed characters and I adored the older-woman fling becoming a real romance, with real issues, and all too real mistakes. My favorite parts of this book are Kate's struggles with her teenage daughter, who seems to prefer her ex-husband's wife over Kate. GAH! Pass me the tissues....In fact, the teenage daughter's sub-plot injects a bit of a YA romance into this big book ...more

Oh how I LOVED this book. Usually I like my sex scenes hotter, but honestly, I didn't miss the hot sex. This story was THAT GOOD. My only complaint is I made the mistake of starting this story on the way home from vacation...then I sat and finished it after I got home...instead of unpacking or going food shopping or doing laundry or catching up on everything I'd missed on social media while I was away.

Very highly recommended!!! (But make sure you have time to read it in one sitting!)

Until You was a great story to read! I really enjoyed Kate and David, but also the secondary characters like Laura and Julie.
Kate is one of those characters I just couldn't help but love - she had been through a lot of bad shit with her ex-husband, and she had very little self confidence. And when she met David, she still didn't really believe she deserved happiness or love. Good thing he was so stubborn!
Susan (susayq ~)
I rarely read a book where the heroine is the older one in the relationship, so this was a nice change of pace. Kate is drowning her sorrows on her 40th birthday when a young good looking man invites her to dinner. She almost says no, but changes her mind and goes. What happens after is a wonderful love story.

I could SOOOO easily identify with Kate. She's just turned 40, recently divorced from a TOTAL jackwagon, insecure because of her ex-husband's horrible treatment of her, and lost in her

Loved! Loved! Loved! This is an exquisitely told story of a woman dealing with all the issues faced when trying to rebuild a life. Freshly divorced and facing forty, being alone isn't exactly appealing. When a chance encounter with a much younger man turns into so much more Kate Adam's world is rocked off it's axis. Throw in a controlling abusive ex and a rocky at best relationship with her teenage daughter and it may be more than Kate can handle.

I read an unedited digital ARC.

I absolutely LOVE this book!! It takes you through a lot of real emotions, presents the after effects of abuse and has a fairytale romance!

Ms. Moon does leave us wanting more in this one. Not a cliffhanger in the traditional sense, there is resolution, however it leaves you questioning. What happens with...? What about...?

Overall, excellent read!!
I read the blurb and just had to read this one. A pro hockey player approaches a woman at a bar on the beach on a bet from his teammates and discovers a whole lot more than he bargained for while she has recently divorced her cheating husband and is dealing with the fall-out while looking at her fortieth birthday as a curse though the younger attractive hockey player who wants to be with her for the night sure does compensate for turning the dreaded 4-0.

“Until You” by Jeannie Moon is one of the most impressive books I’ve read in recent history. Loaded in emotions and insecurities, this is the story of 40-year old divorced woman, betrayed and hurt, having gone through a messy divorce, and spending a lonely birthday.

Kate Adams thought she had a great life, until her husband cheats and leaves her for another woman. Katherine Adams as the famous author is confident and successful. But Kate Adams, the mother, the woman and a divorcee is hurting in

4.5 Stars

Why is it when a 40 year old man dates a woman 10 years his junior he’s congratulated and when a woman does the same thing she’s slut shamed? It really kind of ticks me off to be honest, but I loved the way it was handled in Until You by Jeannie Moon. A 40 year old recently divorced mother of a 17 year old is picked up by a 29 (almost 30) star hockey player based on a bet he made with his team mates. They were somewhat off balance

This is the story (mostly) of Kate and David. Kate just turned 40, is divorced, fighting for custody of her 17 year old daughter and a one night stand with a 29yr old handsome man while in the Caribbean sounds just about perfect. The only problem - it turns out he lives in the same city she does back in the US and is a famous hockey player to boot. Not wanting to let things end so quickly, they see each other back at home and thus starts the push and pull of their relationship. The age ...more

Love doesn’t care about age. It matters not whether two people are on the same timeline or a decade apart. Love does not care. Love knows only that it exists and it will find a way.

Until You is about love. How it can take us over, spit us out and change us from who we thought we were to who we can become. It’s about learning the most important kind of love of all – learning to love ourselves, and if we can’t do that, then working on making ourselves loveable to

The romance Until you is fascinating. It was the first time for long I enjoyed reading and didn't want to go to bed.

Kate Adams is forty, she is divorced, her ex-husband cheated her and hit, her daughter doesn't take her as a mother and is completely and totally on her father's side.

And at this particular time Kate meets hockey star David Burke. He is younger than her and is famous for being goer. Kate is his bet, that has turned into love, her pregnancy and miscarriage. After so many years of

I've read everything Jeannie Moon has written to date and I've loved all of it.

Kate's plate is full, she is a mother to a 17-year old girl and her ex-husband is a giant turd who manipulates everyone. Kate is all too aware of her ex's manipulations because she was a victim of it for years. David is a 29-year old hockey player when he meets Kate and they hook up. Their chemistry and connection is immediate and neither one anticipates how their lives will intertwine.

4.5 stars! This book was a pure tonic - I loved it from start to finish.

Kate is a wonderful character. She’s had a rough time, not just because of her recent acrimonious divorce, but because of the cruel twenty years she went through before it. Her ex-husband is a nasty piece of work, and even though he might have left her he’s still interfering in her life, trying to steal their daughter away. But Kate is more than just an abused wife finding her feet again, she’s smart, she’s gutsy, she’s

Until You isn’t like any contemporary romance I usually read. From the moment I got into Kate Nicholls thoughts, it was like I stepped into an episode of the daytime drama, Days of Our Lives. Kate was a strong woman, a teacher and a bestselling writer. Despite this, she struggled with her relationship with her daughter 17-year old Laura, who was being brainwashed by her father, Richard. Divorced from Kate, Richard was adamant in taking custody of their child, and even demanded for financial ...more
Really enjoyed this delightful tale of author, teacher and newly divorced Kate Adams journey to new love. She’s celebrating her fortieth birthday alone having attended a conference in California when she’s approached by a hunk who is charming, gorgeous and instantly attractive to her. She’s always been “good”, doing as expected of her and doing nothing to rock the boat. It hasn’t got her anywhere romantically, other than married to a cheating, abusive and manipulative husband who was always ...more

Most romance novels are highly unrealistic. That is apart of what draws us to them. Until You breaks this mold being so damn believable that it draws you into the lives of Kate and David. For those who know me, I love a good book with character that have flaws. Like I get insanely happy. Especially with Romance novels. I’m not talking about a tragic past or anything, because lets face it a lot of romance novels feature the tall dark and handsome man who has a tragic dark past, what I am talking ...more
