♡Tonya♡
Rochelle Paige is one of my go to trusted authors. She once again brought us a story that was sweet, steamy and perfectly safe.

-no cheating
-no ow/om drama
-no pushing away
-no violence of a sexual nature
-safe neither with others after meeting
-good epilogue. Wish we could have had farther out but I loved what we had!
Mindy Lou's Book Review
Mani is the restaurant owner that we've gotten to know from Aurora Rose Reynolds Until series. His restaurant is the one the Mayson's frequent. Rochelle Paige decided he deserved his Boom and I'm glad she did. Mani is 35, a successful business owner who's sole focus has been his restaurant for the past ten years. Until Vivian. One look at Vivi and Boom!

Vivian was a very successful marketing media planner when a vengeful co-worker started rumors that brought a series of unfortunate instances. Wi

Oh my… Talking about sweet BOOMS… This is it, Until Mani is the most DELICIOUS little read, quite literally!


Vivian is starting new in town with the help of her best friend, after her previous life is basically turned to catastrophe. She just didn’t know that fate works in mysterious ways and changing her life and moving would mean she now will get her HEA.

One look at Vivi and Mani knows he’s been hit by the BOOM, now he just need to show her that she can be happy and ge

Fleeing a situation not of her making and leaving behind a job she enjoyed, Vivian calls her college best friend. Though their contact has lessened over the year, their bond hasn't. Needing a day free of troubles, such as being jobless, homeless, and limited financially, the two hit Bryson's Steakhouse.

Mani has worked hard to make something of himself and his business, named in honor of his grandfather, the man who made it all possible. That means Mani has had no time, nor has he been interested

I was hooked from the first word. I loved getting some time with The Mayson's. They always make me laugh. I also am a huge fan of the H knowing exactly what he wants from first sight and feeling the BOOM before the h does. Awesome safe book.

Restaurant Boom!

As usual I’m loving all of these Boom stories and this is no exception. Mani and Vivi found there love and it was a great ride to be apart of. A lattice suspense and it made a perfect story to fall in love with.
Danielle (The Blonde Likes Books)
I know this was a pretty short story, but I just can't deal with characters who claim they are "in love" after a week or two. It felt like everything was rushed, and I was told that the characters liked each other rather than showed. Meh.

With her life a complete mess Vivian 'Vivi' arrives in Nashville. Her best friend Lyla has been a godsend offering her a place to stay until she can figure out what she's going to do.

What Vi didn't expect was Mani the owner of Bryson's Steakhouse. He's absolutely gorgeous and all she can think is she's in over her head. What would a man like him want with someone like her?

Mani has worked hard to make Bryson's what it is today. The premier place to eat and celebrate. He's proud of what he's accom

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Until Mani by Rochelle Paige is part of the 'Happily Ever Alpha World' series. This is the story of Vivian and Mani. I have been jumping in and out of the series, so for me they have been made into standalone books.
Vivian was once a successful marketing media planner but hateful rumors started that ended her career. Now she has to come to town to stay at her best friend's place and start looking for a new job.
Mani is a well off restaurant owner whose main focus has been that as he watched ever

Holy hotness!! Mani is a man of many talents as you will learn in this very hot very spicy novella.

Mani is the owner operator of Bryson's Steakhouse. If you have read any of the Maysen books then you already know just how important this place is to them. Vivian is a beautiful young woman who has been fired from her old job and decided a fresh start is just what she needs. When Mani figures out that Vivi is his BOOM all bets are off. He does everything and anything to make sure she is his.

5 Stars!

Rochelle Paige is back in ARR's world with another book after her brilliant novella last year, Until Leo. This book though, her newest Until Mani, might just be my favorite to date. Packed with heart, heat and passion... Rochelle takes her readers on a sweet, sexy, and swoony journey loaded with steamy insta-love, unforgettable food, and explosive chemistry.

She's just girl trying to restart her life. He's one alpha determined to claim his BOOM... forever.

This was my first read by the author & it was great for a Novella. I guess my issue with it besides wanting the ending to be LITTLE MORE, it was very monotone for me. Worth it for a read because it was so romantic and beautiful, but I guess being used to by the UNTIL series, I was missing a little pow if you know what I mean. So I am rating this a 4 & would definitely recommend the read. The hero is very swoon worthy and loving and the heroine is a bit of a damsel in distress which is my favorit ...more

Until Mani is part Happily Ever Alpha World which is inspired by the Until Series by Aurora Rose Reynolds. If you haven't read the Until Series, you'll still be fine reading this one. Rochelle Paige is one of my one click authors but I haven't read any from Aurora Rose Reynolds before and the story flowed just fine for me. It's a short quick read. Mani owns Bryson’s Steakhouse and has seen many of the Mayson family find there boom. I loved the concept of finding your boom. Mani is sweet guy but ...more

I am a huge fan of Rochelle Paige and pretty much devoured this book. Mani is a Hero worth the capital H - hard working, focused, sweet, supportive, protective and just growly enough to make it interesting. Vivian is compassionate, smart, hard working and going through a rough patch. When Mani lays eyes on her, there is the much anticipated Boom and we are off to the races.

Until Mani is packed with so much sweet heat that except for the action-y part towards the end, I was smiling through the en

Until Mani by Rochelle Paige is a novel written for the Kindle Worlds: Happily Ever After series. I have been a huge fan of Aurora Rose Reynolds' Alpha love stories since the very beginning. I absolutely love the fact that she's brought more authors into her world. Having different authors writing stories for characters that were mentioned in her books is pure genius and I am absolutely loving it!!

With Rochelle Paige being a new to me author I wasn't really sure what I was getting into when I fi

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

Eek! Loved, loved, loved Until Mani! Until Nico was my favorite of Aurora Rose Reynold’s, so I was beyond thrilled when Rochelle Paige wrote Until Leo and about flipped when I saw she was writing Until Mani as well! And she did not disappoint! (As if that was even an option with a Rochelle Paige book!)
Vivi’s had a rough go of it, which sends her to a friend when she has no where else to go and unknowingly straight to where she’s truly meant to be. When her trouble tries to follow her, we know t

Vivian is a marketing media planner, but things aren't so happy for at the moment. So she moves and crashes on her friends couch. Until she meets Mani...

These stories always leaves me with a happily ever after sigh and makes me believe in love at first sight. Always packs a punch with a little hint of suspense that will make you wonder why is this book so short🤷❤️😍

I have enjoyed the novellas that have come out of the Happily Ever Alpha World! I love getting to see other people get their BOOM.

Mani owns an upscale restaurant. Vivian has just lost her job and moved to Tennessee to stay with a friend of hers. Vivi goes into Mani's restaurant, and he immediately feels his BOOM. He just has to make Vivian realize it, as well.

I'm not normally a fan of novellas, but Until Mani works quite well this way. I definitely recommend it!

Another great addition to the Happily Ever Alpha/Until series crossover! Rochelle Paige, like always, did not disappoint with this book. We are able to visit with the Maysons again, getting a brief glance at where they are, but best of all, Rochelle delivered the BOOM these books are known for. Mani and Vivi were perfect for each other. An absolute wonderful read!!!?

I received a free ARC of this book and am voluntarily leaving my review.
Natasha Mahadeo
Rochelle Paige is the Queen of short stories. She has writing novella down like a pro.

Mani and Vivi come from the opposite sides of tbe track. When theh meet their Boom instantly goes up and the rest as we say is history.

Their story packs everything we love from steamy scenes to a bit of Suspence.
We even get my favourite guy Nico....
Enjoy this quicky its absolutely delicious....
