I am a fan of all Aurora Rose's "Until Series" and I am sure I will read each and every book she releases in them until she is done...which I hope will be a long long time from now. I myself almost feel like I am part of the Mayson is very comforting actually ;)

This time it is December's turn and those of you who have read the previous book, already a bit about how she meets her "BOOM".

December and Gareth gave me all the feels. Their relationship was seriously so adorable and I loved how easily they jumped into each other's lives. For the most part their story was a pretty easy and angst free read, which I thought really worked for them. We had a lot of time to focus on them as a couple and got to see all of the emotions from that, and I thought it was great. There was still a little bit of angst thrown in, though, so it wasn't

I love how December gets her boom. Garett is amazing. I loved his dedication to his family, maturity, and his pursuit of December. December is one of the quieter sisters but Garett gives her the space and motivation to come out of her shell in the best ways.

The plot and pacing were good. They follow that distinct ARR style I’ve come to love. The characters showed growth and had distinct personalities. The secondary characters were used effectively.

I can’t wait to read what’s next!


With a cover like that how could I not read this book?

Anyway cover aside this is a nice easy romantic read.

Gareth is a single day working two jobs to look after his two boys. Their mother flits in and out of their lives whenever it suits her. So all the responsibility falls on Gareth. He doesn’t have time to date. Until he meets December Mayson.

After a bit of a rocky start they soon fall into a groove.

Like I said this is a nice easy enjoyable read.

description I made it 3/4th of the way through before I gave up. I was bored out of my mind. I didn't like Gareth, and for the love of God can we try something new and stop with the psycho exes that cause issues....

Ok so this author is one that even my keypad recognizes 😂 I check on her releases so frequently it's a shame

Right soooo.....

This one started off pretty slow and I didn't think I'd like the H at all but maybe about 20% in? I got the usual ARR yumminess

J/P hero
Little mini Alpha kiddos
Ex drama but H definitely wasn't interested

I did find for someone in his financial situation he should've been more careful with birth control, I mean he's thinking of her knocked up when he'
Single dad of two teens Gareth Black is drawn to December Mayson from the moment he sees her, and December (nicknamed Ember by Gareth) feels the same intense attraction, but her sister calling dibs leads to her sneaking out on Gareth, luckily once apologies are made and there’s a bit of tension the two get together.

I liked December’s interactions with Gareth’s boys, I just wish we had more scenes where we saw her bond/relationship with Gareth develop. Depth and layering were needed.

I loved this one! Aurora Rose Reynolds and the boom does it again.
Gareth and December get off to a bit of a bumpy start, but luckily they get past it pretty quickly.

Here’s what I loved:
December is super sweet and a great character. She actually reminds me of myself. I’d prefer my comfy couch and a book over going out any day of the week.

I enjoy single dad romances! Gareth’s focus on his kids and doing whatever he must to make sure they’re well taken care of is everything.

The additio

This is how December answers every questions.


This is how a TEACHER answers every questions.


This is how a "strong indipendente" woman
answers every questions.

Um well um what can I um say more um about this um annoying book?
It was, um stupid, um too much ow drama with um absolutely no reasons.

I'm wondering: um why is so um hard to give a female character um a back bone?

It's difficult to read with all this ums right?

The best of BOOMS in single parent romance PERFECTION!!! Heartwarmingly sweet, body sizzlingly scorching and soul touchingly realistic, Until December grips you in the most addictive of ways in an emotional journey where, doing justice to its origins - OG Mayson -, family is what matters most and the core of our beings. I couldn’t have adored more this brand new family of Gareth, December and his boys. I f

Anytime ARR writes another book in this series, it honestly feels like coming home. I don’t think I will ever be sick of this series. After reading a snippet of this at the end of Until Colbi I was stalking her for info for when this would release. When I read about this having a single dad I knew I was a goner.

I don’t even know when I fell in love with this book. Maybe with Gareth’s relationship with his kids or when I found that December was a reader. I couldn’t tell you. I just know that my
Until December was Aurora Rose Reynold’s eighth book in her Until Her / Until Him series.

December and Gareth met at a Mayson Wedding. They clicked immediately but had a few obstacles to get over before they could fully acknowledge their chemistry. It was a fun book with a little drama - but not much. One of the greatest parts was watching the relationship with Gareth’s sons develop with December. Reynold’s made them a vital part of the story, adding depth and complexity to the storyline.

All in a
Dammmmmm the cover is H.O.T!!!🔥🔥🔥

This was a sweet story! It didn't blow me away but it was ok, although I had a feeling that I was missing something from these characters. Loved the kids though!

I love this series so I keep coming back for more and more from this author! But the last books from her were just nice. So I'm hoping for the great ones to come since the Mayson family is huge!

Okay, guys ever since I got a teaser of Decembers story in Until Cobi I have been so excited to read her story and have been waiting patiently (or not) on this book. So when I got it on my kindle yesterday, I dropped everything I had in my hands, ran to my kindle and said screw the book I am reading this one is more important!

I am so happy I did that because December and Gareth's story was better than I expected.

Aurora Rose Reynolds is one of my favorite authors to read. She writes the best Alpha males and the sweetest yet strong women who love them. Until December is no different. I was patiently waiting for this book as we had a glimpse of this couple in the last book in the series, Until Colbi.

Gareth is a single dad of two boys. He’s working 2 jobs to give his boys anything and everything they need. He has a strong support staff with his mom and Aunt which is needed since his ex is crazy. He’s notic

Aurora Rose Reynolds is one of those authors you can never go wrong with. Since the first book of hers I have picked up she has been an automatic one click. And her until series is just perfect.

I love going into these books knowing I am going to get an over the top alpha, a take no shit woman, a few episodes of drama, some hot AF chemistry and a swoon worthy happily ever after. And with all of the until series we are going to get a few drop ins from some of the other masons.

I love that December
Another enjoyable installment in this series. Really liked December and Gareth. However I did feel like it was missing something. It just felt a little bit too short and easy read for me. Still good just not my favorite in this series.

I had the cheesiest smile on my face throughout this entire book and thats not like me, which is why this series remains my #1 series of all time!

Until December was completely perfect! I knew it would be because Aurora Rose Reynolds never lets me down. It had all the elements you except when it comes to this series.... a hot alpha man (and in this story a hot single dad), instalove and as always a mayson in trouble. Its not an Until Series book without the mayson family making appearances. Like

“So what’s it gonna be Ember are you gonna run or jump?”

I'm crying you guys 😭! I've been wanting December and Gareth's story for a long time and the wait has been agonizing but worth it. My heart is filled to the brim with feels, lots of feels. Until December by the Alpha Queen, Aurora Rose Reynolds was EVERYTHING!

December Mayson is my soul sister, my book bestie. She's apart of my tribe now. That just had to be stated before getting into the deets. Now let's dive in! December f

The sweetness of it all!.

So Until December picks up right where Until Cobi left off and it takes a little turn I did not see coming. Actually the whole book went in a way I didn't see coming. The good kind of course.

December and Gareth's story is a real feel good romance. Easily relatable, charming and believable I feel like the plot progressed at a nice pace and the characters has depth and great likability. It had substance... with every page we delved deeper into their emotions peeling back

Reynolds delivers the BOOM, again! Until December is a bit of a slower burn than most of the other stories in the series but with just as much heart. We are treated to the same sense of love and family as with the others, just delivered a bit differently.

I absolutely adored December and Gareth as well as his boys, Mitchell and Max. The dynamics between these characters really drew me in. Not only were we seeing the build of a romantic relationship but one that was so much more complex. Rather th

For the love of god! Please tell me this heroine doesn’t get kidnapped in this one? Why am I even asking when I’m not giving this author my money for the same recycled trope she writes in every single book.
Ex drama
Asshole hero
Weak pathetic celibate or virgin heroine.
And let’s not forget the good ol kidnapped heroine!

Moving on!

I have to say I always love me some BOOM!!

Every book I read in the Until Series I have LOVED!! There is just something about a strong Alpha male and the woman that tames him. I always know I am in for a treat when I pick up a book by Aurora Rose Reynolds. And she has never disappointed me!!!

If you are a fan of the Alpha Hero and have never read a book by Aurora Rose Reynolds then you need to fix that immediately. Her Heroes are

5 Gareth & December Stars

I loved this book. I was so looking forward to it & I devoured every page.
The Until series began with ‘Until November’ (November & Asher who are December’s parents) and that story will always have a special place in my Kindle heart because it was one of the first books that got me into reading contemporary romance and nurtured my love of stories based around families where each is a standalone in a series.

Gareth is a 32yo Dad of two boys aged 15 & 9. Hi
I mostly loved how Garrett was with his boys. I found myself falling in love with him because of them and how awesome of a father he was in this story.

December is my favorite h yet because she's the one that I can relate to the most --- loves to read, doesn't really like to party or go to clubs/bars, likes to bake, doesn't like math....

But somehow, and I'm not really sure why, even if I loved these 2 MC's, it's not my favorite book from this series. Still, this is a great ARR book!

It was good story. Though, I thought there will be more drama related to the ex. Ex was just more annoyance, like annoying fly, then anything big/serious.
I love single dad themes. And I enjoyed this one, because children were amazing. Loved them.
Gareth and December... They were sweet and liked theirs connection.

I told myself I will not read any more books in this series after the last disaster that was Until Cobi.


So.. watch me whip now watch me nae nae

Is this a lot like other books? Yes!
Is this despite that enjoyable read? Yes!

The only pattern I have noticed is that I love November & Asher kids books. So bring me May and April.

Can be read as a standalone even though this is spin-off series.
