So, honestly, from the book synopsis, I thought Until November was going to be one to end up in my take it or leave it pile. I was definitely wrong. So much so, that about halfway through the book, I went up to a friend of mine and told her she needed to read this. The characters, plots, and scenes were so vivid, I often felt like I was there and watching people I know. Aurora Rose Reynolds really delivered. My only disappointment was that this is her first book, so I didn’t have anything else by her to read after I finished this.
November runs off from New York after a violent attack spooks her. She decides to move to Tennessee to get to know the father that her royal bitch of a mother told her didn’t want anything to do with her, but in adulthood she had discovered differently. Enter super yummy alpha male, Asher, who decides instantly he wants her. The story takes you through the push and pull of their courtship, running parallel to a sinister danger threatening November’s life.
I think one of my favorite aspects was the fact that Asher didn’t just completely steamroll over November in dealing with her problems, as much as you could tell he wanted to. She’s an independent woman, somewhat gun-shy to let Asher in, understandable as more and more of her past is revealed. I came to admire November for her strength through adversity. Asher was incredible, just the right mix of rough and hard on the outside, with a soft side that only his family and his woman get to experience.
One more note worth mentioning: the minor characters. I felt I knew the minor characters as well as Asher and November, and I feel that this played a major role in my interest and involvement in the story.
This was a total package winner for me. Not only am I looking forward to the next release by Aurora Rose Reynolds, Until November is going into my read again and again pile.

This book could have been great. It wasn’t bad, not even close, and I don’t usually say this but- I needed more angst and drama. The heroine, November, was a cool chick and had a good head on her shoulders. A horrible childhood and being attacked send her running from the big city to Tennessee for a clean slate and a chance to get to know her Dad and his family. She encounters Asher and he is sexy and speaks jerk, as is popular with our Alpha heroes. Events unfold that point to November not being safe and Asher keeps her safe in the only way an Alpha knows how. He moves her in and makes it clear that what they have will not be casual and if she defies him, he’ll just drag her back. His family is full of interesting characters that keep things light hearted. And he is swoon worthy sweet in his infatuation with November.
November and Asher share a beautiful courtship and things are going well; you actually forget about the events that lead to November living with Asher- until ‘it’ happens and then the whole scene was too easily handled for me. I wanted, no- I needed, a little more. More angst and drama. I love a happily ever after as much as the next girl and Until November delivers an absolutely beautiful love story and happily ever after. Seriously, the epilogue was FANTASTIC! But the main plot device just wasn’t enough for me.
Would I recommend this book? Without a doubt. It was well written and had a great pace. The dialogue and characters are very realistic and easy to relate to. This book will be a 5 star read for most. And it was, in a lot of ways, a 5 star read for me. I just needed the conflict to be a little more.
