Kayla Mackey
I was ready to run from my loss and find something to make me breathe again.
I didn't know it could happen. Until Jase.

Jase Riding
I felt desolate and alone when I lost the best part of me. I didn't know where I would find someone to mend the broken parts in me. That was... Until Kayla.

We met, and with a brief hello and a hushed profanity, we were hooked.

It's a lovely story that brought two broken people together and healed each other.

It's about Jase and Kayla.

Her parents died from a car accident two years ago and she was lost since then. She took her time to mourn. Now, she needs a fresh start and it's time to go to college.

He's an architect and runs his own business at home most of the time. He lost his wife of ovarian cancer three years ago leaving him with his five year old daughter, Avery.

He's not interested to meet anyone but when he laid

There are too many references to his deceased wife for my liking, not to mention inconsistencies with how he apparently felt about her. He mentally thinks how he and his wife never had the spark, the depth of love, his best friend has with his wife, but later, and after meeting Kayla and feeling the boom, he thinks about how perfect his wife was and that he was unworthy of her. That makes no sense. Second, Kayla refers to his wife as his true love upon learning she passed away, and Jase never re ...more

First book by this author.
I didn’t love it. I didn’t hate it.

If the entire thing wasn’t the span of 24-48 hours, then I would’ve liked it. But I mean, they met; a day later, they’re in love and talking about babies.
There was basically no dialogue with the initial meeting...

If it were longer and had more time then I think I would’ve loved it.
I definitely want to try some Ben Cooper though!

I received an ARC from the author for an honest review

This was such a cute read and my favorite so far of the bunch. No, I wasn’t biased because the main characters name is Kayla! Well maybe lol.

Be warned that there is an insta love in here so deep that it might annoy most readers. Well, I like my insta love served up a shiny platter so you know I devoured this. Jack and Kayla were cute beyond words but they also were both struggling with things. Kayla was still mourning the death of her paren

Great short story. Loved it. Yes there was a dead spouse, but I never thought that Kayla was 2nd best. Very well written.

For some reason, single dad/mom novels are my favorites. There’s something about a dad opening himself up to love, and about a woman opening her heart to kids that aren’t her own that just get to me. And vice versa.

This was my first CC Monroe novel, though I do have a copy of Loving Ben Cooper. I haven’t gotten a chance to read it yet due to all the new releases- but since Sadie and Kate make their appearance in Kayla’s book, I’m going to have to crack that one open!

I feel like with this new series spinoffs, they're hit and miss with me.
I've read some amazing ones, and some ones that just make me cringe.
Unfortunately, this one was a miss for me.

Firstly, the Harlan and Harmony just didn't feel like the one's we got to know if ARR, Until Harmony. the dialogue was, I hate to even say it again, cuz it sounds so mean, but the dialogue was just cringy. And I hate that because it had so much potential... I'm such a sucker for a hot dad.
But even the internal di
Kayla Mackey lost everything but is now starting over in a new place and looking forward to the future. She doesn't expect to meet Jase Riding, the instant attraction is unbearable and they both find they can't stay away from one another. Is it too soon for the single father and the college student to find a happily ever after?

This was fun, too short but overall a good base for the story. I liked Jase a lot, he had some cute interactions with his daughter. Kayla was a good match for this hero.

I just simply love this story. I'm just sad that it ended so quick, I had a feeling that I finished it in a blink of an eye. I hope their story will get longer version. Beautiful characters, great storyline, just a great BOOM love story about Jase and Kayla

I was fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy of Until Kayla by CC Monroe this past Friday. That’s right – two days ago. And I finished it within hours. I inhaled this book like it was my reason for living. It was phenomenal.
Story Line: Kayla is mourning the loss of her parents. She  moves to Tennessee for a fresh start  Jase is single dad and widower. These two meet through Harlen and Harmony (Until Harmony by ARR) I was super excited for this tie in. Because Harlen and Harmony are probabl

“You taste like something I’ve been missing.”

“What have you been missing?”

“A fucking heartbeat.”

“You think this will only last tonight? You couldn’t be more wrong, Kayla.
This is just the fucking beginning. You’re mine.”

Another single dad!! Y’all are MAKING MY WEEK! And a delightfully adorable one, at that. Nothing is better than a devoted dad! I seriously fell in love with Jase as soon as I witnessed him interacting with his daughter. “‘Not possible, little one. I’m your protector.’ I stop tickl

I was pulled right into this super short story. The story has pain, and sweet love.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading them first if you want the full stories of the Until series by Aurora Rose Reynolds as these novellas take place in the same series:
Until November (Until, #1)
Until Trevor (Until, #2)
Until Lilly (Until, #3)
Until Nico (Until, #4)
Until July (Until Her #1)
Until Jax (Until Him #1)
Until June (Until Her #2)
Until Ashlyn (Until Her #3)
Until Sage (Until Him #2)

Another great read in the ARR Kindle World Happily Ever Alpha is with Until Kayla by CC Monroe . Kayla has had a trauma in her life and is in mourning. She decides to move to Tennessee for a new start to her life. Jase is single dad and widower who lost his wife. Kayla and Jase meet through Harlen and Harmony (Until Harmony by ARR). Harlen and Harmony are one of my favorite ARR couples so it was great to see them pop up in this story. It was great to read the instant chemistry that shows between
This was a very sweet, romantic novella that is part of the Aurora Rose Reynolds' Happily Ever After Kindle World.

Kayla is an only child that lost both her parents in a tragic accident. She has no family, only two close friends, but even they have their own lives to live. Kayla has decided to move to Tennessee for college, to attempt to move on with her life.

Jason (or Jase, as he is known) is a man with his own tragic past. His life is moving forward, partially, but at a standstill in some way

So CC Monroe is my go-to author, I've got every book she has ever published and when I'm having a tough day I will pick one of her books and instantly feel like I'm talking to a good friend! She is also an automatic one-click for me, if her name is on it, I'm buying it! Simple!
Until kayla was another complete triumph! I loved the relationship between Kayla and Jase from the start, I have to confess I rarely read a book that makes me cry in the first chapter but I knew it would be ok in the end!

I so enjoy reading the stories that are written in "Happily Ever Alpha World." The emotions, the "BOOM" and the HEA. They refresh the hope of love even in a romance book and C.C. Moore didn't disappoint.
Kayla had lost her parents to a car accident two years ago and lived alone in her childhood home with the memories of growing up her parents and without any new memories of them. Now she is moving to Tennesee for college. Her two best friends are going with her on the long drive and helping her t

Wow. Wow. Wow. This was such a sweet novella! CC did an awesome job of creating a story that fits perfectly into ARR’s Until world!!!
I enjoyed seeing both Kayla & Jase feel their “BOOM” when they lock eyes!
Their story was so wonderfully sweet! I enjoyed seeing them learn about each other; and I really enjoyed seeing how they comforted each other in their time of need.

Well if this wasn't a wonderful read! I have only read one other book by CC Monroe so she is still a new Author to me. I am finding I enjoy her writing style of strong heroines and Alpha heroes who fall hard and fast.

Kayla and Jase are two people trying to live each day to its fullest and not let sadness from their past bring them down. From the beginning we see Kayla go from a girl just trying to be her fun-loving self again. Jase is happy for now but knows he is still missing so

I loved Until Kayla so much! It was such an emotional, passionate and beautiful novella ♡♡

This story is about Jace and Kayla, who both have been through a lot but still keep moving forward in their lives. Jace is a single dad and widower. He loves his little girl, Avery, who's 5 years old. He's also friend's with Harlen and that's how he meets Kayla, his second chance at feeling love, his BOOM, his everything ♡

The moment these two lay eyes on each other, their connection was instant and hot ;) T

The Until Series will forever be my TOP favorite series of all time so...when I saw a kindle world bring created around this dreamy cast you have no idea the excitement I felt, especially with that line up of talent, also especially considering some of my favorites and some new writers were included. And now sixteen authors have a chance to find, write, discover, and tell their own very own BOOMs.

Each book is a complete standalone. Each is a novella, giving you a few hours of unforgettab

Ohhhhh... this. All of this. What a read this is!

If you've read any of the Until series, whether the original, Until Him or Until Her, there's a feeling when you read Aurora's Mayson family. That incredible moment of falling, when your heart races and you just... sigh. I knew from the very moment that Jase Riding showed up in this book that the moment was coming and when it did, I was as stunned and as wowed as Jase and Kayla were. Their BOOM moment was MY moment as well.
