Meet Jax and Ellie in this instalove, alpha romance!
Until Jax is LIVE! #Boom
Now Available at the following retailers:
Ellie Anthony isn’t looking for love. She isn’t even looking for a man, but when Jax Mayson insists on keeping her and her daughter safe, she’s left with no choice but to trust him. Now she just hopes she doesn’t get hurt when she falls hard for a guy who’s known for breaking hearts.
Jax Mayson knows that Ellie is his BOOM the moment he sees her. When he finds out she has a daughter, he realizes he wants a family, and he will do whatever is necessary to keep both of his girls safe, even if that means facing the demons from his past.
Holy alpha hotness! Jax suffers from major instalove, which triggers obsessive compulsive alpha male syndrome. I have to say, I loved it. He doesn’t do it in an asshole, demandy kind of way, but more in a ‘I really care about you and I don’t know why’ kind of way. However, no matter how hard he’s been hit by the #BOOM, he still needs to convince Ellie (& Hope) that he’s the one for them – while trying to solve who kidnapped Ellie & July.
Note: You definitely need to read Until July first. You will be confused as fuck in the beginning if you don’t. Ok? Ok. Besides, that’s a great book too!
If you remember, in Until July, Ellie is the other girl that July finds at the house and they escape. Ellie stumbles from the woods and falls practically into Jax’s arms. From the second that Jax sees her, he knows that she’s IT for him. He can’t explain it, he can’t describe it, he just knows that he would do anything to keep her safe.
As Jax and Ellie get to know one another, their pasts keep trying to catch up with them. Ellie is a pretty timid leading lady and doesn’t handle conflict well. She goes from dishing out amazing comebacks to shrinking into herself and falling apart. It’s a little confusing to her as a character, but I could sense she was trying to be stronger for herself AND for her daughter.
Speaking of Hope. Holy ovary explosion. She is the epitome of cuteness. That little girl is so sweet and adorable and the scenes between Jax and Hope almost made me want to miss my birth control pill today. SIGH.
This is a swoony, ovary melting story that made me squeal. If you’re looking for a fix of alpha male, Until Jax will ease your craving and leave you high on romance. 4.25 stars!

Excerpt: Until Jax
“Thank you again for taking me.” Pulling my eyes from the road for a brief moment, I look at Ellie. Her head is resting against the window, her legs pulled up onto the seat, tucked near her ass, and her arms are wrapped tight around them. One thing I’ve noticed about her over the last few hours is she’s always wrapping her arms around herself or tucking her body into a tight ball. It’s like she’s forcing herself to stay together.
“I told you I got you, baby,” I say gently, wanting more than anything to take her hand in mine, but every time I touch her, she freezes up like she’s waiting for me to strike out at her, and I would be lying if I said that didn’t piss me the fuck off. It does; it feels like a slap in the face every time it happens.
“I know,” she whispers, and the tears I hear in her voice cause a sharp pain in my chest.
“This is the turnoff.” Her feet go to the floorboard and her hands to the dash as she sits up taller, moving her face closer to the windshield. We drive up a long dirt driveway with forest and the occasional broken down car on each side. When we make it to the top of the hill, a singlewide trailer comes into view, with junk cars and garbage piled up out front.
As soon as I come to a stop, she opens her door and hops out before I can tell her to keep her little ass in the cab. I don’t even know how I’m going to deal with the range of emotions that have settled over me since seeing her for the first time.
“Fucking Boom,” I mutter, getting out behind her and doubling my steps until I’m able to reach her side, where I wrap my hand around her waist and pull her closer to me. She’s so fucking tiny that the top of her dark head sits right at my chest. So fragile, from her too soft skin to her petite size. And she’s mine.
