Review

I enjoyed this book a lot but there are writing errors and almost all the tropes of the book are heavy handed.

What saved it was fun dialogue, a great circle of friends, a wonderful sweet hero, and a geeky heroine.

Our hero and heroine are both shy which is fun. The hero is very self aware and kind. The heroine has PTSD from a past attempted rape.

The hero’s lovely wooing of the heroine plus the fact that that he is a super hot Scot let me enjoy the book despite the telling passages, lack of complexity, and typos.

Until Nico (Until, #4) by Aurora Rose Reynolds Review

  Until Nico (Until Series Book 4)  by Aurora Rose Reynolds 

Sophie Grates has never had it easy, but she’s finding her way through life one step and one day at a time. That is, Until Nico comes in and flips her world upside-down. He forces her to see you cannot live life from the outside looking in, and sometimes you have to step out onto the ledge so you can really enjoy the view.

Nico Mayson knew the moment he saw Sophie Grates that she was the one. His whole life, he has been judged by what’s on the outside, so finding a beautiful woman who sees the real him only makes his feelings that much stronger.

Nico knows the kind of man he is, and the things he is capable of, and he will do everything in his power to help Sophie fight her demons so they can have their happily ever after. Everything in life worth having is worth fighting for.

3 Stars!

 

Review 

This is a lovely, sexy, sweet romance made all the better by the super tough hero’s little puffball of a dog.

I loved the steadfast kind tattooed up hero. Who wouldn’t? The heroine comes into her own as she works through her issues that stem from neglect and trauma.

Nico is a sweet Alpha hero which we don’t get enough of in Romanceland.

The books was really enjoyable.

However, there were lots of little things I wanted to make it a richer feast. The heroine who loves books talking about books much more. More dog antics. I would have liked to know what all those tattoos were. I would have loved to really see the heroine go through therapy a bit and more of the support group she joins.

Very good overall!
