Blog Tour: Until Sage (Until Him #2) by Aurora Rose Reynolds
Now available on
Sage Mayson had Kimberly Cullen once, and the memory of that brief encounter has tortured him since the moment he pushed her away. He should have followed his gut, but he didn’t, and now he’s left watching the woman he wants more than anything from afar.
Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he’s the one person she finds herself leaning on.
Getting a second chance is something Sage knows is rare. He’s not going to squander the one he’s been given, and he won’t take no for an answer when it comes to making Kim his.
But what Sage doesn’t know is Kim has a secret that could leave them both devastated and heartbroken.
Until Sage is another great read from this author. If you like her prior works you won't want to miss this one!
Sage was adopted into the Mayson clan so he doesn't think the Boom will happen to him. Only when he first sees Kimberly it happens. There is something there he can't ignore. And in typical Mayson ways he tries to make her his. Right from the start. And things are great. Until they aren't. Until something happens to make him push her away. Something that he realizes too late was not what it seemed and now he is sitting on the sidelines waiting for another chance with this amazing woman.
Kimberly is so sweet. She has a loving family and has some issues, but nothing she can't handle. She didn't know she was adopted, didn't know she had a twin sister until more recently, but that sister is not in a good place. She tries to be there for her sister, but it is hard as she has been through so much that Kim doesn't understand. When her sister is murdered she has a really hard time with it. I mean who wouldn't?
When Sage finally gets a chance to make things right with Kimberly he doesn't waste it. He is there for her however she needs him. They were really cute together. Kim is afraid to tell Sage some things about herself and I was worried it would be a big, over the top thing, but the author handled everything wonderfully. I really loved that this book was more about the characters and them figuring everything out than drama. It was lovely.
Now I will say one small thing about the story. The beginning at times is a bit...rushed feeling. Like I understand events from prior books are referenced so they are just glossed over, but when it affects this story it could have used a bit more...just a bit more. If you haven't read the prior books I can see where you could be slightly confused as at times it was like wait what? I vaguely remember something happening, but I am going to have to go back and read that part in the prior book again to really remember. So that was my one small thing, otherwise the story was great. I loved Sage, he is so sweet! And Kim is just as awesome.

“He apologized. Don’t you think you should do the polite thing and at least hear him out?”
“I don’t know.”
“You don’t know, or you’re just too scared to find out what will happen if you do?”
“Do we have to do this right now?” I sigh, and he tosses his arm around my shoulders and pulls me into his side.
“We’ve been doing this for months now. I’ve seen the way you look at him when you think no one will notice, and I see the way he looks at you, not giving a fuck if everyone sees. Even when he thought you and I were a thing, he still made it perfectly clear to those who were watching that if by some chance he got a shot, you would be his.”
“I really think you are reading way too much into this.”
