Lisa’s Review

5 Stars

“Why can’t I hate you?” Her words are quiet, and I can hardly make them out.

I whisper into her ear before kissing her under it, “Because I am your one, too.”

Until Lilly is book three in Aurora Rose Reynolds’ Until series. I was so excited for this book seeing that this author decided to tease her readers with a little snippet into Cash’s life at the end of the last book, Until Trevor. Well, this book did not disappoint. Ms. Reynolds has written a wonderful addition to this series with yet another sexy as hell Mason brother, a sweet heroine, two adorable kids and one ex who you want to rip apart….with your bare hands. I think Until Lilly book may just be my favorite in the series so far.

Cash Mason has had to make some hard choices in his life. Like two of his brothers, Cash met his “one” and it was an instantaneous boom. However, when one of the women he has slept with shows up out of the woodwork claiming she is pregnant and threatens to terminate the pregnancy unless Cash makes her a priority, he knows he must end things with Lilly to protect his unborn child. Leaving Lilly was the one thing that completely shattered him. Now a few years later, divorced from his crazy ex-wife and with full custody of their son, Cash runs into Lilly once again. However, this time, he knows he will never be able to let Lilly go again. Another Mason brother in hot pursuit.

Lilly Donovan’s heart was utterly broken when Cash ended their relationship. Being left to deal with a surprise pregnancy may have turned her world inside out, but Lilly has made the most of it raising her daughter on her own and finishing school in an attempt to give both her and her daughter a better life. Cash has never been far from her mind as she has never really been able to get over the man who stole her heart. When she runs into him after a few years of not seeing him, she is not only surprised to see him but also is left wondering why Cash is so shocked to find her with their daughter.

Cash and Lilly’s fragile new relationship was torn apart by deceit and lies. As the secrets that destroyed them slowly come to light, can Lilly and Cash overcome all that has happened and take a second chance at love?

I loved this book. The circumstances that Cash was forced to deal with were definitely heart-breaking and I completely understood his decisions. I adored how he fought hard to prove to Lilly that he loved her once he had her in his life once again. Adding two beautiful children into the mix only made my heart melt further. Lilly was an awesome heroine. She was deeply wronged and had every right to hate Cash; however, she never let all that happened to her turn into bitterness and cruelty. She was the perfect “boom” for Cash. Together they worked for a happy forever and this book was full of all sorts of sunshine and butterflies that made me happy. I completely despised Cash’s ex-wife with a hearty passion and wanted to reach into my kindle many times to give her the ole one-two punch to the vagina. Damn, she was a nasty pill of hostility and crazy!

All in all, Until Lilly was a sweet look at what happens when you decide to take a second chance and forgive. This book was charming, heart-melting and fun! Further, when any of the Mason brothers are present you also know that you will get a whole lot of sexy. Loved it! I can’t wait for more. It is Nico’s story up next.

Excerpt

“Is that what you do? I mean do you often try to hit on women in coffee shops by buying coffee for them?”

“I can tell you with one hundred percent truthfulness that I have never done that before.”

“Never.” A look passes over his face I don’t know what It means but I don’t like it.”

“Do you date a lot?” I ask quietly wondering if he thinks I will be some kind of conquest.”

“I haven’t dated.”

“You haven’t dated?” I look him over again he must think I am stupid guys who look like him must date a lot.

“I have never had to date.”

“What does that mean?”

“If I want to sleep with someone I don’t need to date them.”

“What?” I breathe that is not at all what I expected him to say. “You’re the guy that can get any girl he wants without ever putting any kind of effort into it.” He shrugs the gesture making me feel sick at the same time I want to kick him in the nuts. Maybe the red hair does make me have a temper.

“I never lead anyone on or tell them things they want to hear.”

“So that makes it okay?”

“I don’t know if it makes it okay but it’s who I am.”

“Well I am glad that this is coming to light now rather than later.”

“Oh no,” He shakes his head. “This thing with you is something completely different.”

“Yeah I know.” I tell him crossing my arms over my chest. “Its different because I will not be sleeping with you.” I lean forward. “EVER.”

“Well I guess we answered the question about red heads and their tempers didn’t we.” He smiles showing off both dimples. “But trust me when I tell you I would not have driven almost three hours to sleep with you that’s not what I am looking for.”
