Review: Until June by Aurora Rose Reynolds
Series: Until Her (Book 2)
Publication Date: 24th May 2016
June Mayson and Evan Barrister’s whirlwind courtship resulted in a secret marriage right before he left for boot camp. Evan knows deep in his gut that June is too good for him, but after getting a taste of the beautiful life they can have together, he’s unwilling to let her go. June promises to wait for him, knowing neither time or distance will ever change her feelings for Evan—that is until she’s served with divorce papers while he’s overseas and she’s forced to let him go.
Her marriage and divorce a well-kept secret, the last person June expects to run into when she moves back to her hometown is Evan. Angry over the past, she does everything within her power to ignore the pull she feels whenever he is near. But how can she ignore the pain she sees every time their eyes meet? How can she fight the need to soothe him even if she knows she’s liable to get hurt once again?
Is it possible for June and Evan to find their way back to each other again? Or will they be stopped by an outside force before they ever have a shot?
My Rating: 2.5 out of 5 Stars
This book was okay. Not great, but okay. The chemistry between the characters was good and the premise of the story was so, so, promising but the execution let it down. It was like reading a really poor imitation of a Kristen Ashley novel.
Now, I've never read an Aurora Rose Reynolds book before so I don't know if this is her usual writing style or not but it didn't work for me.
Setting this aside, I found the story to be enjoyable enough but not something that held my attention and left me unable to out the book down. I could put the book down and when I did I wasn't twitching to pick it up again.
Some people are really going to like this book but sadly it just wasn't for me.
