Blog Tour ✭ Until Jax by Aurora Rose Reynolds ✭ Excerpt, Review & Giveaway
Meet Jax and Ellie in this instalove, Alpha Romance!
Until Jax is LIVE! #Boom
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.
“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.
Jax, son to Cash & Lily, has found his BOOM! What’s a BOOM you may ask? Let’s just say that no woman, none what so ever, stands a chance against the BOOM affect.
Ellie has just endured a traumatic experience. One that involved her being kidnapped, then being saved and now at the hospital with none other than Jax himself. Jax was a part of the rescue team that helped with rescuing Ellie and July. But that’s over now and Ellie is ready to leave the hospital and get back to her precious daughter. But Jax has not left her side and by the looks of it doesn’t seem like he’ll be leaving anytime soon.
Thinking back to when I was reading Until July, I recall catching glimpses of Jax in her story and also having a brief encounter with Ellie. But never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that Aurora would write such an amazing story for Jax and Ellie! I myself am a lover of Nico, who as we learned is Jax’s uncle. But wow did I get a run for my love when I met Jax. He is one hot and seductive Alpha Male!
Ellie never stood a chance against Jax’s Alphaness. Even though at times Jax really laid it on thick with the Alphatude, she knew that what they had was instalove. Reading this story and watching how Jax, Ellie and her precious daughter Hope become an instant family was rather unexpected but very enjoyable. Not everything is sunshine and roses for these two though. There’s a dark menacing force still out to cause massive complications. So much so that a past member of Jax’s family pay’s an unexpected visit. I must say that this book was amazing! It was fast paced, to the point where I could not put this book down until I read the final word in this book. But when I did finish I had a serious book hangover *sigh* Now knowing that the wonderfully talented Aurora Rose is currently working on June’s story gives me a slight relief. Hurry and add Jax and Ellie’s story to your TBR list. You will not be disappointed.
