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.

Review by Juany - Guest blogger at Kindle Crack Book Reviews/4 Stars
Who can forget meeting Nico in Until November? I sure haven’t! Dark blonde hair, blue eyes, gauges in both ears, a pierced eyebrow…left me wondering what else might be pierced?? I knew right away that he was the black sheep of the Maysen family and I couldn’t wait for his story. The Maysen brothers are a tight family but Nico has paved his own path. He left the family business to become a bounty hunter. He’s the youngest and the least trusting of the bunch and thought his brothers were crazy for settling down and actually believing in the Maysen curse. 

If you’ve read the other books , Until November, Until Trevor, and Until Lily, then you’re familiar with 
the Maysen curse. When they least expect it, they meet a woman and it’s BOOM, love at first sight. 
They’ll do anything to keep her and anything to keep her happy. 

Nico and Sophie meet through unusual circumstances. As soon as he sees Sophie, it’s BOOM time for 
him! Sophie has some past traumas that make it difficult for her to trust Nico. Their story is about Nico showing her it’s okay to move forward and trust again. Of course there are some hot and steamy (did I say HOT?) scenes like only Reynolds can write! Nico also has to put up with some serious ribbing from his brothers and nephew about falling so hard for Sophie. 

This series has quickly become one of my favorites! I’ve come to enjoy spending time with these 
characters and love how Reynolds always brings everyone back in each book. Until Nico has a wonderful epilogue that had me smiling from ear to ear! 

Nico and Sophie’s story alternates between POVs. This is a perfect book if you’re looking for something romantic, steamy, and angst-free. I recommend reading this series in order.

Excerpt:  Until Nico
I look around and see a guy staring at me. He’s about my age, not much taller than my five feet five inches, cute, and wearing a suit and tie. I start to wave to see if he’s the one I’m meeting, but then another guy catches my attention. He’s about six three and huge, and I don’t mean just in height; his body looks like it’s been chiseled from stone. He’s wearing black boots, washed-out blue jeans, and a white t-shirt, and every piece of skin exposed is covered with tattoos. His ears have those gauge thingies in them. His dark blond hair is cut low on the sides, and the top is in a fauxhawk. His jaw is strong, with a few days of stubble, and his eyes are so blue that they almost look like contacts. He is beautiful in a way that is unusual but no less gorgeous.
His eyes come to me before looking away quickly, and the next second, they come back to me and do a head-to-toe sweep. I gulp at the intense expression on his face. I glance past him to the other guy—or at least try to—but Mr. Tattoo starts towards me, blocking my view. I want to take a step back, but I can’t go anywhere. Then I see my phone in his hand.
“This yours?” he asks.
I nod like an idiot. He shakes his head, running his free hand down his face, and then his eyes sweep over me again.

“You have got to be fucking kidding me,” he says, seeming upset.
I look down at myself, wondering how I could’ve offended him. I look normal—or my working-outside-the-house normal. When I’m at home working, I wear baggy sweats I cut off to make shorts or pajama pants that hang off of me along with tank tops or T-shirts. The few days a week I get out of the house, I like to dress up or at least wear heels.
“This cannot be fucking happening,” he growls, and I wonder if he is completely crazy.
“What?” I ask, finally finding my voice. I have to tilt my head way back; even in my four-inch heels, he still towers over me.
“Me, what?” I ask, confused.
“Never mind. Who is this?” He presses the button on my phone, the screen lights up, and a picture of Jamie Dornan wearing nothing but a pair of jeans takes up the screen.
“Um…that’s Jamie,” I reply, wondering why he is asking but too afraid to ask him; the look on his face isn’t very inviting for conversation.
“He your man?”
“I wish,” I mumble under my breath and hear him growl.
My head flies back as I search his face; his jaw is ticking, and his knuckles of the hand holding my phone are turning white.
“What does that mean?” he asks.
“That’s Jamie Dornan. He’s playing Fifty. I don’t know him.” I feel my cheeks heat up and look down at my feet.
What the hell’s wrong with me? Why am I not afraid right now? I have been scared of virtually everything my whole life, and now, when I should be running for cover, I’m not scared at all. Just a little embarrassed.
“I don’t have time for this,” he says, and I don’t know what he’s talking about, but I all of a sudden really want my phone out of his hand before he crushes it to smithereens.
When I look up again, I see that he is walking away. My eyebrows come together, and I wonder what he is doing. Then I realize he still has my cell.
“Hey! You can’t steal my phone!” I run after him, grabbing his arm.
He looks down at me then stops short. I’m completely caught off guard when he wraps an arm around my waist, pulling me flush against him. His free hand goes into my hair and pulls my head back, and then he kisses me. No, not kisses—he consumes me. My body starts to buzz like someone just plugged me into an electrical outlet, and I start to feel lightheaded. When he pulls his mouth from mine, I gasp, my fingers going to my lips.  
“What was that?” I whisper, looking into his eyes.
“What’s your name?” he asks, still holding me close.
“Sophie,” I tell him, my answer spoken behind my fingers.
His body is as hard as a rock against mine; I can feel every muscle, every contour, and it takes everything in me to keep breathing. I realize this is the first time in my life I have ever felt small, my curvy figure never having allowed it before.
“Sophie,” he repeats, standing up to his full height and pulling me with him. I look around and wonder if time has stopped for anyone else.  “My name is Nico.”
“Of course it is,” I say, staring into his amazing eyes, thinking that a guy who looks like him would have a name like that—cool and hot, something that rolls easily off your tongue but is hard to forget.
“I’ll see you when I get back into town, Sophie,” he says as he lets me go, making sure I’m steady on my feet.
“What?” I ask, looking around again.
“Here’s your phone.” He hands me my cell, and I’m still a little lightheaded when he starts to walk off again. I watch in a daze as he leaves, but then he turns around to face me from a few yards away.  “Sophie?”
“Change the picture on your phone,” he demands before he turns and disappears into the crowd.

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

ABOUT LUX: Consequences:

Now available together for the first time, don't miss Opal and Origin, the third and fourth books in Jennifer L. Armentrout's bestselling Lux series. Also includes bonus content exclusive to the print edition! "A thrilling ride from start to finish," says RT Book Reviews.

No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger...and they know it.

Night Fury: First Act (Night Fury #1) by Belle Aurora is LIVE! This new dark and slightly twisted book has me praying for book 2 to release soon. Read my spoiler free review and enter Belle's release day giveaway!

Title: Night Fury: First Act (Night Fury #1)
Author: Belle Aurora
Release Date: June 2, 2014
Genre: Dark, New Adult

My name is Catarina.
Or, that’s who I was christened to be, anyways.
I live in a convent. I am a nun in training. A postulant.
I am eighteen years old.

I am a predator.

No one is safe from me.

I am protected.

No one can get to me.

By day one way, by night another. They call on me.

My name is Catarina.

Codename: Night Fury.

No one is safe from me.

I will come for you. 

"I trail her down the dark, dimly-lit hall. The sounds of our footsteps echo through the narrow space.
I’m walking towards my destiny.
How poetic.
We reach the end of the hall. Frankie clicks in her keypad code. More humming and buzzing, the steel door clicks opens and finally – finally – I’m home.
I take the first step towards the rest of my life. And I do it wearing a shit-eating grin.
This is exciting.
I’m excited.
My life will be thrown one-hundred-and-eighty degrees. From boring to extraordinary.
I can’t wait.
“Welcome back to Mirage.” Frankie utters as she starts her descent down the stairs to the ground floor."

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Title: Night Fury: First Act (Night Fury #1)
Author: Belle Aurora
Release Date: June 2, 2014
Genre: Dark, New Adult
Series: Yes
Rating: 5+ stars
Cliffhanger: Yes…but don’t let it scare you away from reading this book.

Holy Hell…where do I start so I can remain spoiler free? Ok…here it goes…

Cat (Catarina) is a horny NIT (Nun In Training).

Her surrogate father isn’t really a “Father”.

Her best friend Frankie is a fellow Sister (who is banging the Father at the church).

Her second best friend is a 24-inch Katana sword.

Cat is a trained assassin...who likes to cook, garden, pray and prey on her targets.  Her targets are the dregs of society – child molesters and monsters.  They don’t stand a chance against Cat, aka Night Fury.

Nothing appears as it seems.

That’s all you are going to get from me.  I promised a spoiler free review and you need to experience this book on your own.  This short, twisted story reads like a wicked combination of the movie Point of No Return movie and the hit TV show Blacklist -- on speed.  I’m saying my prayers...please let Book 2/Act 2 come fast. Thanks for the Kindle Crack Belle Rose Aurora!
