Blurb

Dillon Keck knew Ashlyn Mayson was drunk when she suggested they get married. He knew he should have taken her back to their hotel room and put her to bed. Instead, he did what he had been craving to do since the moment they met.

Claim her as his.

Waking up married in Vegas isn’t something Ashlyn Mayson ever thought would happen to her. Having Dillon, her boss, a man she thinks is a dick, insist they stay married is absurd, but every time he touches her, she gets lost in him and wonders if maybe they are meant to be together.

But someone isn’t happy for Dillon and Ashlyn and their new found romance, and they’re willing to do anything to keep them apart. Even commit murder.

 

Every time I read anything by Aurora Rose Reynolds, I think its my favorite book she’s ever written. Then she writes another book and that one becomes my favorite. “Until Ashlyn” is keeping this tradition alive.

I loved this book from page one. If I had to sum this story up with one word, describing why I loved it, I would choose “balance”. This author has an incredible knack for creating the amazing alpha male, but not making him overwhelming. The females in her stories are intelligent and independent, but yet can have the men in their life support and love them. Its a beautiful balance that makes these stories work for me.

Dillon and Ashlyn have been working together for awhile. Ashlyn finds Dillon attractive, but also think he’s a jerk (for a lack of better words). Dillon, on the other hand, is very attracted to Ashlyn, but she has no idea. A trip to a dental conference in Las Vegas, a hotel mix-up, and some cocktails lead Dillon and Ashlyn to wedded bliss via the Las Vegas strip.

Ashlyn and Dillon have smoldering chemistry. The love scenes in this book are so incredibly sexy, and yet they aren’t overdone. This couple got married without ever dating and so some of the story is their dynamic of working together (in a relationship aspect) and it was hilarious. Dillon is composed and maybe a bit rigid. Ashlyn is much more outgoing and feisty. I enjoyed watching them push and pull each other back and forth, out of one comfort zone, and into a new one.

I know in many books from Aurora Rose Reynolds, we see a lot of the family members from past books. I’ve always loved this facet, but this book was really exceptional because we get to see so much of Dillon’s family melding with Ashlyn and her family. It was enjoyable to see these characters come together and to watch new friendships growing. I’m honestly hoping my husband and I can somehow join this fictional family. I just love this cast of characters so much.

There is some mystery in this story. There are a few people that aren’t happy about Dillon and Ashlyn being a couple. Anytime I read a story with even a slight hint of mystery, I get so caught up in trying to figure out who the guilty party is. Because this author has such great balance in her story, I was kept on my toes the entire time, but I also was able to enjoy the whole story. I think some books get you caught up in one aspect and its hard to see what else is even happening. I appreciated there is mystery, but also the love story, the families, etc. are able to be fully enjoyed at the same time.

I can’t recommend this book, and author, enough. I have loved Aurora Rose Reynolds and her work for awhile now. Ashlyn and Dillon were an incredible couple and I am already super impatient to see which couple we get to spend more time with next.
