Review - Until Tomorrow by Annie Kelly

Title: Until Tomorrow
Series: Flirting With Trouble #2
Author: Annie Kelly
Release Date: March 15, 2016

She’s trying the straight and narrow... 

Carson Tucker only has one thing on her mind: getting her life back on track and pursuing her teaching career. She can’t afford to be distracted, yet no amount of good sense can compel her keep her mind—or eyes—off the brooding and mysterious Wyatt Sands. She agreed to be his tutor and help him finish his degree, but now she’s wishing she could inspire him in more ways than one...

He makes her want to break all the rules... 

Still reeling from the tragic accident that took his best friend’s life and left him wheelchair-bound, all Wyatt Sands wants to do is forge ahead without any attachments. His solitary lifestyle works well until the after-hours sessions between him and his tutor turn hot and steamy. As the chemistry between them fuels a passion that is too electrifying to be denied, will Carson be able to break down the barriers that Wyatt has erected around himself—or will their fiery passion burn them both?

I fell a little bit in love with Wyatt Sands in After Tonight, and Until Tomorrow just finished the job. If you’ve read my past reviews, you’ll know that I have a thing (a huge thing) for flawed heroes. Wheelchair-bound and bearing the emotional and physical scars from the tragic accident that killed his best friend, Wyatt is the definition of flawed hero. He’s beautifully broken, sweet, sensitive, and stronger than he could ever know. He’s basically impossible not to love, and so I loved him dearly.

Carson Tucker is equally damaged—she’s picking up the pieces of the life she’s been hell-bent on derailing, and she’s doing a damn fine job of it. Tutoring Wyatt is a way to keep her on track with her teaching career, and it helps give her a purpose and keep her grounded. Her attraction to him is…inconvenient. But also irresistible. There’s a whole mountain of baggage between them and all the growing and healing the two of them have to do will either pull them together or push them apart.

This really was a lovely story—the chemistry between Carson and Wyatt is intense, steamy, and as irresistible to read as it was for them to experience. I was completely sucked into this book; both of these characters were fascinating to me, and the struggles that they faced felt authentic and heartbreaking. I loved the support they offered each other—theirs wasn’t just a physical chemistry (though there was plenty of that), there’s a foundation of friendship underneath all of their interactions and it’s sweet and heartwarming and fun to read. 

I felt like things wrapped up a little quickly and maybe a little too neatly in the end. The major conflict probably deserved a little more of a detailed resolution. However, I walked away with a giant smile on my face. I loved the time I got to spend with Carson and Wyatt, and my heart was happy for them. This was a quick, easy read filled with a wonderful balance of humor, angst, and steam. I didn’t want to put it down, and I was a little sad to see it end. I’m loving this series so far and I loved the little tease we got for Rainey’s story. YES! More, please!
