As I have said before, I love meeting new authors!!! Until November is a sweet love story with a bit do suspense mixed in!
We start by meeting November, who is moving from New York to Tenesse to live with her father. She didn't meet him until she turned 18 because her mother kept them apart. November was raised by a nanny with her mother being absent A LOT and thinking her father didn't 't want her. Her first relationship was not until college and he cheated. After a few years of building a relationship with her father, November is attacked and left for dead in New York. She falls in love with her savior and takes him with her to live with her dad and names him Beast. Yes he is a dog ;-)
Her dad set up the basement apartment for her since she nearly 25 and not a kid. She is also going to be using her degree to manage the books for her dad's strip club. One night when leaving she has a run in with the perfect species of man named Asher! Well perfect until he talks, like any other hottie! Asher thinks she is sleeping with her dad and is a stripper, and November is all to happy to see the shock when he realizes it's her father! This is when he decides he HAS to have her!
At times some may think things seemed rushed, BUT it really goes with the characters and their personalities. My husband and I have not been apart since our first date, he moved in quick and it's been 7 years and we are as happy as ever, so it is possible. And she doesn't just rush into his bed, it's an unfortunate set of events that send Asher into protective mode. I really LOVED watching her blossom throughout the story.
The mystery comes to play when someone is stalking her and sending cryptic messages through poems. November has NO idea who it could be, but everyone starts thinking her attack in New York May not have been random. But who could hate her so much as to try and kill her?
Rating: 4 stars
***I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review***
“You like me distracting you with my mouth.”
“You need to kiss me. All night you slept cuddled into me. You can’t do that to a man without at least kissing him.” His face was close to mine and his eyes were warm. My eyes drop to his mouth. I couldn’t help it, he has a nice mouth.
“Kiss me,” he whispers his mouth brushing mine.
“No,” I whisper back, watching his eyes darken.
“Okay, then. I'm going to kiss you,”
“So, what are we doing today? Can we go riding?” I ask excitedly.
“No, someone’s coming over in an hour,” he says, wiping his mouth.
“O…kay,” I say slowly, waiting for him to tell me who is coming over. He doesn’t say anything, just smiles. “So, who is it?” I ask after he still doesn’t say anything.
“You’ll see.” He shrugs.
“So, you’re not going to tell me who it is?”
“Nope,” he says, putting his cup and plate into the sink without rinsing it. He starts to walk away, so I clear my throat to get his attention. When he looks at me, I nod my head in the direction of the sink and he raises his eyebrows. So, I nod my head in the direction of the sink again. “Do you have a tic, baby?” he asks, his mouth twitching.
I narrowed my eyes. “I'm not your maid, Asher.” He straight out smiles, giving me the dimple, then walks to the sink, takes his plate and cup out, still without rinsing them, and places them in the dishwasher. “You have to rinse it before you put it in the dishwasher,” I tell him, feeling and sounding like a total nag.
“It’s a dishwasher,” he says slowly, walking towards me.
“Ye—” Before I can get the words out, his mouth is on mine. The kiss is deep, wet, and so yummy, that when he pulls his mouth away, my hands are wrapped around his neck and my legs are around his hips. I'm in an Asher fog so deep that he could tell me that it’s not a dishwasher, but a microwave, and I would agree with him completely.
My eyes flutter open. He’s looking down at me with a cocky smile and mumbles, “That’s better.” Then, he squeezes my ass in his hands, sets me on the counter and leaves the kitchen, putting on his shirt as he goes.
“Holy crap,” I whisper. Beast looks at me, grunts, then walks to his dog bed and lays down, completely disappointed in my lack of willpower. “It’s not my fault,” I mumble to my dog. He lets out a breath and shuts his eyes, completely dismissing me. “It’s not,” I say, still mumbling. I hop off the counter, take Asher’s dishes from the dishwasher, rinse off the cream cheese so it doesn’t harden onto the plate, rinse out the cup then place them both back in the dishwasher. The whole time, I'm smiling.
