I had the pleasure of reading early copies of Until Kayla and Until You’re Mine for the new ARR Kindle World, Happily Ever After. If you are familiar with Aurora Rose Reynolds then you know her love interest are as alpha as they come and you know all about the “BOOM” when you meet the one.
Happily Ever Alpha Kindle world based on the bestselling Until Series. Each author was hand picked by Aurora Rose Reynolds. Also, every novella is a stand-alone!
Note: Even though I love ARR and receive ARCs by the authors, it didn’t sway my ratings.
Until Kayla by C.C. Monroe
I was ready to run from my loss and find something to make me breathe again.
I didn’t know it could happen. Until Jase.
I felt desolate and alone when I lost the best part of me. I didn’t know where I would find someone to mend the broken parts in me. That was… Until Kayla.
We met, and with a brief hello and a hushed profanity, we were hooked.
I swear we heard thunder when our eyes met.
Boom. And our lives were changed forever.
This was such a cute read and my favorite so far of the bunch. No, I wasn’t biased because the main characters name is Kayla! Well maybe lol.
Be warned that there is an insta love in here so deep that it might annoy most readers. Well, I like my insta love served up on a shiny platter so you know I devoured this. Jack and Kayla were cute beyond words but they also were both struggling with things. Kayla was still mourning the death of her parents and Jace was dealing with his feelings of being ready to move on after his wife’s passing. They were there for each other and I love it.
Sidenote: I loved seeing Harmony and Harlen make a cameo appearance in this one!
All in all, this novella is another great addition to the world ARR created! ❤️
Until You’re Mine by Jenika Snow
He left eight years ago for the military. That was the hardest time of my life. Xavier was the boy who’d sneak into my bed at night and hold me as my parents fought in the next room.
My best friend.
The man I was in love with.
The man I’d saved my virginity for.
And now he was back home for good. Too much time had passed. I was done keeping us in the friend zone. I wanted him in my life in every way that counted.
So if he wasn’t going to make the first move then I would, even if it might ruin what we had. Because I had to take that chance.
She was my life, the very reason I breathed.
I saved my virginity for Cora because no one else compared. No one else ever would.
It was time I man up and tell Cora that she was the only girl I’d ever loved, that no matter how much time had passed she’d been it for me.
But how could I go about doing that when eight years had gone by? Admitting how I felt was hard as hell seeing as we’d always just been friends. How could I not cross any lines and screw up the relationship we had?
Easy. I’d tell her I loved her and propose.
Warning: Sit back, relax, and dive into a double virgin friends-to-lovers romance that’s so sugary sweet your teeth will ache. Although it’ll tug at your heartstrings, make no mistake it’s as filthy as can be. A standalone romance with no drama and just the juicy bits, this story features cameo appearances by Asher, Cash, and Trevor Mayson from Aurora Rose Reynolds Until series.
Just like the blurb says, this was sugary sweet! I have been loving Jenika Snow’s novellas lately and this one is no exception. I loved our characters, Cora and Xavier. I loved seeing Xavier lose control with his caveman tendencies when it came to Cora. The chemistry between these two were like crackling wires, and their steamy scenes were hot!
This made a great addition to the world ARR created!
