Aurora Rose Reynolds Until series are some of my all-time favourite books. So, I always have to check out the new releases in the Happily Ever Alpha series. When I read the blurb for this one, I couldn't wait to get my grabby hands on it.

Sadly it just didn't work for me. I didn't like Guin and I didn't really connect to King either. I really should have stopped reading around the 20% mark but I couldn't. And it didn't really get any better for me.

Oh well, guess I can only hope my next read works

Kingston Black has a reputation and it isn’t necessarily a good one. Guin is a kindergarten teacher, well until she mets King and her life is changed. They become roommates and well things from there kind of escalate.

Guin and King had an instant connection the moment they met. They shared a perfect night together. Neither of them could stop thinking about it and when they become roommates their chemistry is still simmering beneath the surface and they can only deny that attraction for so long.

4 Star Review Until Kingston by Shanna Swenson
Shanna Swenson is a new author to me. Until Kingston is based in Aurora Rose Reynolds' Happily Ever Alpha World. I was hooked on the story that Ms. Swenson wove about Kingston Black and Guineve Watson, and really liked them both individually and as a couple. The connection between them is immediate and the fact that Kingston is a single dad to two little girls just added to my enjoyment.
I spent a lot of this book smiling and at times I felt as if I w

Okay let me just say, when I started the book, I freaking loved Guin. I though she was fun and sexy and sassy and just an all around good time chick. But the more I read the more I kind of faded a bit.

I felt she was so judgemental towards Kingston. She didn’t know him, just heard rumors about him. And then when she had to be his alibi… Her plan to get back at him after she lost her job and her place to live was just ridiculous. Kingston tried everything to help her out, offered her a p

This was an addition to ARR’s world that felt like a distinctly different vibe. I enjoyed Kingston and his love for his children, as well as the secrets he grudgingly held while trying to free himself of the mess his ex caused. And boy, what a mess it was! He also managed to keep his cool amid the (one-sided) prank war Guin perpetrated upon him. I mean, the hair prank was so ill-timed, yet funny, and he handled it with such class! I especially enjoyed his brother and catching up with Gareth and ...more

OMG!!! What a BOOM!!! This story was AMAZING!!!

Once I started reading I couldn't stop I was so engrossed in this story and the characters. There is not one page I didn't love.

King and Guin had such a fantastic chemistry, the sensual tension between these two was off the charts hot but I also love the sweet moments they shared with each other.

When Guin met King, her world turn upside down. She love/hated him but with all King's tough exterior he was a big caring and protective teddy bear. I love

4.5 Stars for Until Kingston (Happily Ever Alpha World)
This is a new author to me but that is going to change because after reading this entertaining story I'm left wondering why she hasn’t crossed my radar before now. This book was always going to be on my radar because I love single dad romances and I love the Happily Ever Alpha World created by Aurora Rose Reynolds. This is Guineve Watson and Kingston Black’s story and boy do they take you on an entertaining, emotional journey. Guin is sassy

Until Kingston gives us a BOOM so strong that it will have the doors and windows shaking. King and Guin have a connection and chemistry that is off the charts. Their story has intense heat and the sexual tension between these two crackles around you. A story that has secrets, revenge, retribution, romance and just enough angst to have you gripped to each and every word. The witty banter between King and his Little Bit along with the side characters gives you even more to love about this story. A ...more

Another amazing read in the Happily Ever Alpha World.

I was hooked from the start! Guin and Kingston have such amazing chemistry! Guin is sweet and sassy. Kingston is stubborn, tough, and so sexy! These two together were like a ticking timebomb.

Full of passion, suspense, steam, and humor. King and Guin's story is everything you could want wrapped up in one beautiful story! Hold onto your seats. King and Guin will take you on one heck of a ride!

Until Kingston by Shanna Swenson is the story of Guinevere 'Guin' Watson and Kingston Black. This book is part of the Happily Ever Alpha World Series but this can be read as a standalone book if you wish to do so. Guinevere was the ultimate good girl who was a school teacher who gave in the her desire for Kingston. Then there came a fall out when she had to be his alibi for a crime which tell spins her to loosing her job and her place to live. Kingston has felt the 'boom' when he meets Guinevere ...more

I’m such a big fan of the “boom”! Like that is literally my all time favorite trope! I thoroughly enjoyed reading King and Guin’s story. It was even better getting bits and pieces of Thor and Jolie’s story throughout because now I’m even more excited about getting their story! So good!

I really enjoyed this book. We got to see some of our old favourite characters and meet new ones. I couldn't put book down once started.

I loved Kingston and Guineve together, they may of met in a pub. But circumstances made that they were stuck in same house. I loved the pranks but also the feelings building.

I can't wait for more.

Nice book

They book started off slow for the couple, but when they finally gave in to each other the book was really good then. It's worth to read.

A very sweet steamy read. Lots to cuteness all around in this book. It was a short fun read. Good

What could possibly happen when a kindergarten teacher goes out with her friends and had a few drinks? Well, she could be left homeless and jobless.

Guin loved her job and in one night of having too much fun, she lost it as well as her job. How could one hot and sexy biker guy make her lose everything? Guin has always had a hard time staying the course when she has had too much to drink and a night out with the girls is no different. She notices King, Kingston Black, from across the bar and all h

I've read many a novel from Shanna Swenson, and she always finds a way to tell unique love stories with blends of relatable characters, sweet moments balancing dark conflicts, with plenty of spice. In this new novel, which is part of an anthology series, everything she does best is definitely at play.

Guin, a mild-mannered teacher (when sober), goes for a girls' night to the bar. She meets Kingston, a heavily tattooed biker who's beyond gorgeous and just as into her. Fueled by alcohol, lust, and

This is my first time reading this author and I enjoyed her writing style. In this book we meet 37 year old single dad of two daughters, Kingston Black. I was excited to read his story because he is the cousin to Gareth and Selma Black and we had met him in other books.

One night he meets 24 year old school teacher, Guinivere at a bar and they have a one night stand. The next day he is taken to the police station for questioning and guess who is his alibi? Yep Guin but she is afraid if anyone fi
Kingston Black is just trying to keep his life in together after the s@!t storm that his ex-wife left him and his daughter in. The problem is that he is still involved and people have labeled him as something other than what he truly is, more trouble than it is worth. So, after meeting the woman of his dreams in a bar one night, he knows that he will do what is necessary to keep her. It is unfortunate that things from his past are affecting her life, but he is going to use that to his advantage. ...more

I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.

In this book we meet Guinevere "Guin" Watson and Kingston "King" Black. Guin is out with her girlfriends December and Jolie when she spots a very yummy man. Since she has been drinking well everything is on the table at that point. When both women try and talk her out of it she doesn't listen. Since King is December's husband's cousin you think what she says would have mattered but in her drunken state

Thanks to the author Shanna Swenson for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review!

Kingston Black has a reputation, and people make judgements on him for that, whether it’s based on truth or not. Guinevere is a kindergarten teacher who likes to let loose a little when she’s out with her girlfriends, a bit different from teaching small children all day. She who gets tangled up with Kingston (in more ways than one!) and that is where this book begins!

First I want to say that Swenson is a masterful storyteller, I have yet to read one of her books that hasn't left me with a book hangover of massive proportions. She builds rich worlds filled with three dimensional believable and relatable characters in a way that is rare and precious.

Until Kingston is no exception. Guinevere is sweet and sassy, and full of life, and you can't help but empathize with her throughout the book. She's got a wild streak that equals her sweet southern charm in a balan

Shanna Swenson is a new to me author, and man did I love her writing style which got me from the jump only to let me go when I had no more pages to experience. Guin was living her best life, until the night she hooked up with a sexy biker/musician named Kingston. It was all fun & games in the sheets until she's an alibi for a murder charge so she lost her job & her apartment, and it seems certain that she's pissed off about it LOL! She's determined to get revenge, but it doesn't take long before ...more

Until Kingston by Shanna Swenson is an addition in Aurora Rose Reynolds' Happily Ever Alpha World. This is Guinevere (Guin) Watson and Kingston (King)Black's story. Guin is BFFS with December and Jolie. King is December's husband cousin. So they are connected through December and Gareth. Their 1st meeting in a bar was electric. Neither knew who the other really was - she was his child's teacher and he was a parent of one of the children in her room in the school. It was hot, forbidden, INTENSE a ...more

(Happily Ever Alpha World)
Written by: Shanna Swenson

This was a fun book to read. The characters had me smiling and laughing a lot of the time.

Guinevere Watson by day was a great kindergarten teacher and sometime by night she was a good time party girl. The night she met Kingston Black she was in party girl mode. Kingston Black looked like a biker and sometimes acted like a biker but his main job in life was to be the best single dad he could be to his two girls.

Until Kingston by Shanna Swenson is part of the Happily Ever Alpha World series and GOODNESS GRACIOUS but did it deliver!!!

Kingston is utterly DELICIOUS and the ultimate bad boy with a heart of gold, tatted, a biker, a rocker, with endearing girls that totally charmed me! He's the best kind of dangerous and I LOVED it!

Guinevere, Guin, is sweetness personified, with an edge, in terms of still being feisty and fiery and sassy, and I ADORED her!

This is a good book. I loved Kingston and Guin. Kingston has to make things right after one night with Guin makes her lose everything. Guin's life goes on a whole new path, but just maybe for the better. Kingston is such a great dad and there is more to him than the reputation he has gained with a MC. All the characters are great. Kingston's youngest daughter is so adorable. The secondary characters just added another layer of greatness to this book. This book takes some unexpected path
