Blog Tour - Until July by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Title: Until July
Series: Until Her #1
Author: Aurora Rose Reynolds
Release Date: April 13, 2015

Wes Silver wasn’t looking for love, but when July Mayson literally knocks him on his ass during their first encounter, his world is turned upside down by the quirky blonde, and every moment with her makes him more determined to protect her.

July Mayson doesn’t understand the pull she feels toward the bad boy biker Wes Silver, but she knows being with him is like nothing she’s ever felt before. Now all she has to do is tell her overprotective father, Asher Mayson, that she’s found her boom.


Ever since I binge-read the whole Until series, I’ve wanted to get my hands on more from these characters. When I found out that Until July was being written, I got super excited! Since I absolutely loved the Until series, I had high hopes for this book. And though I enjoyed and really liked the book, I didn't love Until July like I hoped I would.

The young July we meet in the Until series is now 26 years old and a veterinarian. She has a love for riding motorcycles, and that love puts her in a situation to meet the hot biker, Wes Silver.

I love a good biker romance so I was excited that Wes was a biker and he was going to be July's “boom”. Since July grew up with an Alpha male dad and uncles, it was only fitting that Wes was also an Alpha male.

This book had a good amount of drama and mystery, with bad things happening that you can expect from having a biker theme. It adds a good element to the book and you wonder what is going to happen next and who's behind all of it.

One thing that bothered me about the book was that we didn't really get to see much of the family. I felt like that aspect was just thrown to the side. If we did see them, they were only in the scene for a very short time. Since we read about them originally in the Until series, I just expected that they would be a more important part in this book.

Overall, I really liked the book and thought that Wes and July had great chemistry and were meant for each other. They had their ups and downs, but they made it through in the end. I loved the ending! The next book will be about Jax, and I can't wait to read it!

I admit I was a bit apprehensive about reading Until July. I FLOVE the Until series and I didn’t think I was ready for November and Asher’s oldest child to be falling in love and having her own romance. But damn, Ms. Reynolds' showed me that not only was I ready, but I was willing and happy to read about it too.

July is now 26 and a veterinarian. She’s never met an animal she didn’t want to help. Out for a motorcycle ride on a beautiful day, July’s inability to harm an animal almost causes an accident with another group of bikers. It turns out it was a happy “almost” accident. Now, she just needs to figure out how to introduce him to her parents.

Wes Silver wasn’t looking for love; he was out for a ride and during that ride, he’s knocked for a loop, and on his ass, by the one and only July Mayson. July brings out the protective streak in Wes, but is it just his determination to keep her safe or could it be more?

I really enjoyed this continuation of the characters from the Until series. July has a great relationship with her parents, especially her dad, Asher. Asher’s been suffering all these years with five girls. That still cracks me up. Wait until you get to the bar scene when all the girls and their female cousins go out for Girl’s Night. Those Alpha Dad’s haven’t changed a bit!

I also love the relationship July has with her best friend and office receptionist, Kayan. They’re so dysfunctionally funny—just like true best friends. But the relationship that’s smokin’ is the one between July and Wes. Phew. Sexy. And real. Protective, Alpha, Dominant—all Wes, but July puts him right in his place. They have a balanced relationship—one that’s give and take, and forgiving. It felt true and real, not contrived. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Reynolds’ gives us in Jax’s story.
