Opposites don't just attract... sometimes they BOOM!

I've never felt like I was enough… then everything changes when I'm assigned to audit the Broken Eagle's Motorcycle Shop and meet Rowan Pryor for the first time.

Mindy Lou's Book Review
Another great addition to the Boom! I loved Rowen and Valerie. For a novella, this felt like full length book. I like that we got a more developed background worked in with all that insta love, and possessive alpha that I enjoy so much.
Fiona Fog

When Valerie Dawsons job takes her to the Broken Eagles Motorcycle shop she's not prepared. Thinking this would be just another audit part of her job as CPA is far from the image she had in her mind. Thinking of older bikers, long beards what she gets is a workshop full of extremely sexy bikers. Ones who are not old. But it's only one who captures her attention. Rowan. The instant attraction is like nothing she's ever experienced. It leaves her feeling fluster and unsure. One thing she's never b

AHHH!!!! i enjoyed this one so much!!!! It was a good pace i didn't skim and i love both Val and Row!!! ❤❤❤ now i gotta ask does the sister or best friend have a story??

Nerdy girl and hot biker

This was a decent read about a nerdy accountant who meets a sexy biker. Both of these two have similar backgrounds where they have wealthy families and neither get along with their fathers. The book was a quick read, but really not enough to get a good handle on the character development.

Great addition

This author is a great addition to the Until world. I’ve not read her before and found this story to be insta-love and a bit of drama at its finest. Rowan and Valerie had instant chemistry. I look forward to more from this author.

This little gem in the ARR Happily Ever Alpha World was fun even though it was blaringly obvious who the bad guy was. Rowan was hot, sexy and smart. Valerie was perfectly geektastic. I loved how the characters had some depth to them despite how short the book was. It's going in my favorites pile of this group of HEAW releases.

Review in progress...
Valerie Dawson grew up trying to make her father proud and even though she is a successful accountant, he still doesn't give her a chance to prove herself to him. When she is called to audit the Eagle's Motorcycle Shop she doesn't expect to catch the attention of Rowan Pryor.

Rowan knows that Valerie is going to be his one. Now he needs to convince the woman who is quickly becoming his everything of that fact.

Very fun, liked this story quite a bit. I felt bad for Valerie with her family situati

When I first learned about ARR making a collab with different authors to write parts oh her Until series, I was partly worried and partly curious as how this venture will go. So when I was presented an oppurtunity to snag an early copy for a review of one of the Until books created in ARR's Happy Ever Alpha, I grabbed the chance with no hesitation.

Turns out, the author, Jessica Marin did not disappoint.

It's my very first book from this author and I was impressed.

This was a quick, sweet and sexy story. Rowan and Valerie both feel the Boom/Shazam the instant they meet. Valerie tries to resist but finds it futile. Rowan gives Valerie confidence in herself and with her new found confidence she is able to stand up to her father and better her life. These two were perfect for one another.

This is my first time reading Jessica Marin and what a joy it was.
This is aBoom book, if you get your boom she's the one and no one can tell you any different.
Rowan and Valarie meet when she has to audit his work place, and the Boom only takes minutes.
Neither of them understands why this is happening but they know they've met their forever person.
If you love instalove this is for you. Great little read

Although Jessica Marin is a new to me author, the “Until” universe is not since I have been a fan since “Until November” first came out. Playing in someone else’s universe, and incorporating well known characters while introducing new ones can be a really intimidating task, but I thought that it was handled fairly well in “Until Valerie”. It helped that the story remained firmly focused on the two protagonists, Rowan and Valerie and kept the more well known Until characters somewhat in the perip ...more

I was pulled right into this super short story. The story has naughty fun, passion, and hot steamy 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:

Rowan works for Wes, July's husband at what apparently is the Magic Mike motorcycle shop...yes please. Valerie is the all business auditor that is sent there to audit the garage. As soon as he sees her, and I am not exaggerating, poor guy starts choking, he was that smitten with her. As soon as they shake hands, he knows she's his Boom, the guys at the garage know too and tease him about it. She tries to fight it for about a hot second, but you just can't fight chemistry.

I could kick myself for not reading this super sweet and sexy novella earlier, because Until Valerie is without a doubt one of the best stories written in the Happily Ever Alpha World! The writing was beautiful and absolutely captivating. I loved how the characters and plot line perfectly fitted into the Until world from ARR and allowed me to re-connect with beloved characters like Wes, July and Z. Watching the Boom strike between nerdy Valerie (an auditor) and sexy Rowan (former Navy SEAL and m ...more

This is hands down one of my favorite Happily Ever Alpha World novellas! Bravo Jessica Marin for writing such a sweet and swoon-worthy story. I've adored sexy biker Rowan who works for Wes (July Mayson's husband) and the kind-hearted but tough CPA Valerie who is assigned to audit the Broken Eagles Motorcycle Repair Shop. One says you shouldn't mix work with pleasure but that's impossible when the famous Boom strikes and makes you fall head over heals for your soul mate. The chemistry between Row ...more

Until Valerie is my first book by Jessica Marin, and it was the perfect introduction. A sweet and sexy Boom with cameos from some of our favorite characters in the book world is hard to pass up.

Valerie Dawson has plans for herself, and they don't include a sexy biker from a small town. From the time she could cogitate, Valerie has had one goal, to get her father's love, attention, and pride. She's worked toward that goal with a single-minded focus, at the expense of friends and a social

I am an immense fan of UNTIL SERIES by Aurora Rose Reynolds, although I need to catch up on a few books. I’m so glad we get to read the interconnecting stories in Happily Ever Alpha world. I enjoyed every single minute of this story and never wanted it to end. It was well developed, well written and thought out even though it was a quick and short read. It didn’t lack anything and it was fast paced. It was sweet, s

Jessica Marin bought the BOOM and a whole lot more, in this fantastic novella.

When I heard there was going to be another round of Aurora Rose Reynolds Happily Ever Alpha crossover novellas, I was thrilled. 2018’s series introduced me to so many new authors, as well as a stronger love for familiar authors that took part, and I couldn’t wait to see what 2019 was going to bring.

I am a HUGE fan of the UNTIL SERIES books! This one was perfect, short but packed with so much that you don't feel like you missed anything!


This is the story of Rowan who is a former NAVY Seal now member of the Broken Eagles Motorcycle Club and works in the repair shop. He is larger than life, loving being away from his past that suffocated him, and now has a new family that he would risk his life for. This story features Wes Silver & July Mas
I found so many new authors to love through the Happily Ever Alpha World, and this is one of them. This is a totally new to me author, and if this story is an indication, I'm going to be digging through her previously published books! I totally enjoyed this story, since it had everything I love about MC romance. There were tough, hot bikers, a strong woman that is still a little vulnerable, and a mystery to be solved!

Valerie is a strong woman, but she has never been quite enough for her father.

The Broken Eagles Motorcycle shop is being audited, and the person doing the audit is Valerie. Valerie is determined to make something of herself, her main goal is proving to her father that even though she isn't the male heir he wanted she is just as good if not better than any man can be. When Valerie first gets to the shop and locks eyes with Rowan, everyone else disappears for a moment and it just seems as if it's the two of them in the whole world. Rowan has no c

Valerie spent her whole life trying to make her Dad love her, but alas she wasn't a boy and no matter what she did nothing would ever make him proud of her!! even following in his footstep in the hopes that one day he'd pass the family business onto her-but nope he'd either give it to a suitable husband (one that he approves of or chooses) or sell it rather than have a girl run it!!!!

I love Aurora Rose Reynolds for bringing this Over protective, testosterone charged, alpha male filled world to life. These men have a knack for bringing out the bad ads warrior in the women that are their "BOOM".

After reading all of the original stories in the Until Series, I was left wanting to know a bit more about Valerie and Rowan's backgrounds, and thought that Rowan's character should have come across as a bit more alpha/possessive, to fit alongside the rest of the Until male population.

This book is so swoon worthy that it'll make you feel it from the top of your head to the tips of your toes (sigh) 😊... Every woman deserves a Rowan and every Valerie deserves a Rowan🌹.
