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.

My Review

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

"Fucking Boom."

Ellie and Jax do not meet under normal circumstances, but the moment he sees her (not even meet her, SEES her), he knows that she is his "boom." The one he is supposed to spend the rest of his life with. Now he just needs to convince Ellie of that. 

Ellie is a victim of the human trafficking storyline that we read about in Until July. She gets rescued along with July and that is the first time Jax sees her. Without giving it a second thought, Jax brings Ellie and her daughter Hope to stay at his house. Of course Ellie was a bit wary (who wouldn't be?) of Jax and his kindness, but his main concern was was keeping them safe and having them close was how that was going to happen. So basically Jax wakes up one day as single guy and next thing he knows he has an insta-family. 

I loved everything about this book. Every time Jax interacted with Hope...SWOON. (Sidenote: Hope was hilarious. I love when an author writes a funny kid. I especially like when that kid wraps the Hero/heroine around their adorable little finger. The author definitely accomplished that with Jax and Hope's relationship and it was probably my favorite part of the book. Cockporn anyone?) Jax having a heart to heart with his parents and talking about how they became a family...SWOON. Pretty much everything Jax said to Ellie...SWOON. Jax just existing...SWOON. Seriously though, I don't think he could be more perfect. He was so patient with Ellie and didn't push her to do anything she didn't want to do. He was so super protective (like all the Mayson men) of both Hope and Ellie and while at times it may have seemed like it was too much, it was necessary. 

Jax definitely had his work cut for him when it came to convincing Ellie that their relationship could work. She'd only been burned in the past and recent events have made her even more wary of people in general. It doesn't help that one of Jax's crazy exes makes it her goal to make Jax hers again and causes lots of problems. But Jax (and the rest of his family) do a fantastic job of not only accepting Ellie and Hope, but bringing them into the family fold like they had been there all along. Ellie gets the family she always wanted and Jax gets to hold on to his "boom." 

This book made me want to go back and read the original Until series. Lilly and Cash's love story becomes very relevant to Ellie and Jax's and it was nice to take a walk down memory lane. I am also looking forward to Sage's story. We get a little background on the situation between him and Ellie's coworker Kim, and I think that it will be quite the doozy of a book.

“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.
