My name is Shayna Renee and reading is my passion. I can’t wait to escape reality and dive in to a passion filled love story! I own a Nook, Kindle, iPad, and way too many paperback books to count. I never find myself without a way to read a chapter here and there. My favorite type of book is one that can pull every type of emotion out of me. The uglier the cry I get from reading, the better! It all started when a friend of mine urged me to read a little book called Fifty Shades of Grey. Have you all heard of it? Yeah, I thought so. I found myself wanting to see what else was out there, what was so fascinating about this particular genre. On my journey, I discovered authors like J.R. Ward, Shayla Black, Sylvia Day, and Sylvain Reynard and I was just hooked! After reading these fabulous books for a while, I discovered I really had no one close by to share my thoughts with. That’s when I decided to start a blog; a review blog that could help me get my thoughts out there and in turn get other people’s recommendations and opinions. I absolutely LOVE the authors and romance readers I have met through this journey, and I only hope to continue sharing my adoration of books with you!

Until Trevor (Until, #2)

Until Trevor (Until, #2) - Aurora Rose Reynolds ❖ 4 1/2 Stars ❖

Aurora Rose Reynolds has done it again with Until Trevor. She has given us a gift in the form of this amazing love story between two stubborn souls. These two souls fight and claw every step of the way, but the ending is inevitable. They will fall hard, and they will fall fast. Nothing can stop two people who are meant to be together.

We first met Trevor and Liz in book 1, Until November. Trevor is Asher’s brother and Liz is November’s friend. We got a glimpse of the chemistry between these two in book 1 as well, and I couldn’t wait to learn more about their story. Liz and Trevor became real close in the past months, until one drunken night when things got real hands on, and a misstep in communication ruined what they had. Trevor stayed away from Liz because of her so-called “innocence,” and Liz stayed away from Trevor because of the fact he humiliated her and made her feel like just another one of his conquests that he was done with. Trevor could stay away from Liz in his head, but in his heart, she was his BOOM, and nothing can get in the way of that.

❝She had no idea how sweet she was; it made me want to lock her away so the fucked-up world didn’t have a chance to contaminate her.❞

Trevor is just like his brother Asher in so many ways. He is stubborn, possessive, and sexy as hell. He will stop at nothing to protect his woman, even if it’s from herself. When Trevor loves, he loves HARD! Just when you want to slap him, he turns around and does something so damn sweet it melts your heart. Being in a relationship was so new to him. Throughout the book it was as if he was reading a book called, “Relationships for Dummies,” and doing everything it says. He tries so hard, and it is incredibly endearing. Bottom line – Trevor is all about family, and if someone, anyone messes with what’s his, you better run the other way…fast.

❝Will you go out with me? YES or NO❞

Liz has been trying to move on ever since that night with Trevor. When she finds herself in a bit of a dilemma, she seeks help from the people who are closest to her. Not wanting anyone else to know she is in trouble, she is surprised when Trevor shows up asking, no DEMANDING why she didn’t come to him for help. When Trevor realizes what an ass he has been in the past, he works fast trying to claim Liz as his in every way possible. He will have her, even if he has to drag her by her hair like a freaking caveman. Liz will let him, but she will tell him what he can go do with himself. Liz may look sweet and innocent, but that girl will jack your tire off your car if you so much as look at her cross-eyed.

❝Now I know if you get in a huff, all I have to do is give you an orgasm, and you settle your ass down.❞

These two CRACK ME UP! They yell at each other, they fight, and they make passionate, intense love. It’s like this throughout the entire book and it is so entertaining. With Trevor’s personality, I think Liz is his perfect match. She can submit to him, but she can also hold her own against the brute when need be. They both can’t get away with anything, the other is right there waiting for them. It’s incredibly hot. Ms. Reynolds can definitely write an intense sex scene like nobody’s business. She had me panting a couple of times for sure. Trevor is an animal in the bedroom, so demanding and vulgar but it is so sexy on him. His potty mouth is one of his best qualities.

❝I love that I can make you lose control. That’s how I want you. That’s how you make me feel; it’s only fair that I make you feel the same.❞

Not only was this a beautiful love story, Until Trevor was chalk full of suspense. You are following along on their wonderful journey, everything seems to be perfect, then BAM, shit just got real, and you are thrust in to a dark place full of danger and struggle.

The Until Series by Aurora Rose Reynolds is a great series that will satisfy your romantic side as well as your need for an alpha male and the woman who will stand by him no matter how stubborn and possessive he is. Not only do you feel the love between the two main characters, but you feel the bond and the connection with these brothers who will make you weak in the knees. And finally, Ms. Reynolds gives us a glimpse of what to expect in the next installment, Until Lilly, and with that I will leave you with Cash’s famous last words…

❝….but I’m never going to let a female turn me into some kind of crazy, possessive, pussy-whipped guy.❞

We shall see Cash….we shall see!
