Favorite Quotes:

Jason and Meghan had the most complicated uncomplicated non-relationship he’d ever been involved in, because when it came right down to it, he didn’t do relationships.

He hadn’t seen Chelsea in months, not since she’d gone to California to try her hand at getting a real modeling job, as opposed to just posing and making duck faces in the mirror for people on the internet… Her showing up with a bottle of champagne in each hand foretold of either a huge break or a giant breakdown…

Great book. I loved it.

After her father's death, Meghan has to take over the family business, the bar that her father ran since her mother's death when she was a child. It's hard to deal with her loss, and she moves away from Jason, with whom she had a secret relationship.

Jason understands that she needs space to overcome, and gives it to her, a detail she appreciates. But he can't stand being without her and goes to see her to resume their relationship.

At the same time, Me

Full review and other reviews:

Until Next Time is the first Josie Kerr book I’ve ever read. After I read the blurb I was excited about being introduced into this world.

Meghan and Jason have been friends-with-benefits for a while now. Sleeping together whenever they got the chance. Things seemed to be getting more serious when Meghan loses her father and is struggling to keep their bar open.

Six months after her father passes away and Meghan is in the fight

When Meghan’s father became ill, she needs to focus on saving the family business, Foley’s Public House, and didn’t have the time or the energy for her friends with benefits relationship with Jason. Now that her father has passed away the responsibility becomes hers but outside forces are making her efforts to make the business viable difficult and the one person who can help her is Jason.

Jason respected that she needed to focus on her father and the pub. He is more than willing to help her reno

I have mixed feelings about this book. I thought it was well written, had great characters, and SUPER steamy scenes- but I felt lost half of the time since I have not read the first book.

I absolutely love standalone books that have different people in each one, but this is one of the first times that I started a series in the middle and was confused for about 50% of the time with the characters.


I really enjoyed the story. Like I said, the characters are super relatable and the

We all have loved us some Jason and Meghan, and lets be honest especially Jason because that boy is hilarious and smexy! We finally get to read about what’s really been going on between the two of them, as their story unfolds and grows. This book was exciting and and kept you guessing. At a couple points you’re holding your breath and praying. We are introduced to several new players and I can’t wait to find out more about every other book has left me from Josie.

4.5 Stars....
This is my first book by this author and it started a little slow for me but picked up about 35% in. Jason and Meghan have one interesting non relationship going on. I have to say the more Meghan pushed
Jason away the more I got frustrated with her .. but Jason is so bossy and pushy it made sense at times. Once there relationship starts it seems like they move at warp speed but it makes you wonder how much you missed also. Overall it was a sweet read with some hot moments.

I loved reading this book, it's good, hot, sexy and one very good read. I curled up with my hot tea, a warm blanket and couldn't put it down. It leaves me wanting to read more of what you wrote as I love a good book. Was a wonderful read throughout. The characters pull you in and make you want to read more. Keep it coming...

Meghan and Jason has fun together for awhile. “Friends with Benefits” suited them and things were fine until Meghan’s dad became ill and she had to focus on him and saving her legacy, Foley’s Public House. When Meghan’s attempt to save her business is being undermined by someone from her past as well as unknown threats she turns to Jason and his restoration company to help. Of course lines get blurred and things get heated . When the risks to Meghan become more intense Jason and some of h

Sassy and independent Meghan is used to standing on her own and it takes the death of her father to make her realize there is a loving community who is waiting in the wings to help her. This addition to this wonderful series is fraught with tempers, threats and love. I realy enjoyed this. The chemistry is off the charts and the friends are too.

This is the first of Josie Kerr's books that I've read and based on the description it was sure to be a winner. I love military romances with strong alpha males and equally strong female characters and Jason and Meghan definitely lived up to this point.
I did feel there was some gaps in the story, pertinent information that would have added to better understanding the characters and their motives but all in all this was an enjoyable read and a good introduction to a new author.

It was intense page turning story, engaging characters and a good storyline that pulled me in the twist and turns that were unexpected.

Until the Next Time is the first book that I have read from Josie Kerr. It is the second book in her Give Me Shelter series, but Until the Next Time is a standalone story. This one sounded so good that I knew I had to take a chance on it. While there were things I liked here, unfortunately I did struggle with it as well.

It was definitely enjoyable story.
Friends,friends with benefits and something else. He will do everything for her and when she ask for help he will do it.
No questions ask.
These two are perfect together as Meghan is independent, determined while Jason is determined to help

A stand-alone book, in what appears to be a series. This is a great story set in an Irish Pub. Meghan and Jason were relateable and fun. Some angst for sure and a great element of suspense. Well written and well worth the time to read. I will buy the next book in the series. This was my first read by this author, however I will be going back and purchasing other titles.

I couldn't put this down! Loved Meghan and Jason's story, it was totally worth the wait!

My heart just broke for Meghan, dealing with her loss.. but loved how Jason had her back and helped her through it. These characters are so well written, they have depth and nuances that I thoroughly enjoyed.

No spoilers in this review, just read and enjoy it!

*can be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend reading the first book of the series (heck, just dig up all of Josie's back catalogue and get star
