June Mayson and Evan Barrister’s whirlwind courtship resulted in a secret marriage right before he left for boot camp. Evan knows deep in his gut that June is too good for him, but after getting a taste of the beautiful life they can have together, he’s unwilling to let her go. June promises to wait for him, knowing neither time or distance will ever change her feelings for Evan—that is until she’s served with divorce papers while he’s overseas and she’s forced to let him go.
Her marriage and divorce a well-kept secret, the last person June expects to run into when she moves back to her hometown is Evan. Angry over the past, she does everything within her power to ignore the pull she feels whenever he is near. But how can she ignore the pain she sees every time their eyes meet? How can she fight the need to soothe him even if she knows she’s liable to get hurt once again?
Is it possible for June and Evan to find their way back to each other again? Or will they be stopped by an outside force before they ever have a shot?
4 out of 5 stars
Book 2 in the Until Her series focuses on sister June, daughter of Asher and November and sister to July, book 1. June married a man named Evan when she first moved to Alabama for college; she knew the minute she saw him that he was the man she wanted to marry. Evan was getting ready to go the Marines. While he was deployed, he served June with divorce papers, via his mother.
Fast forward a few years, June is done with college and back home in Tennessee near her family. It turns out that June was dating a guy in Alabama who was arrested for being a drug runner with his family. Jax (June’s cousin) assign’s his “guy” Evan to watch June. June can’t handle that Evan is protecting her.
June and Evan eventually start talking again. Evan is an even bigger alpha than Wes and Jax and I didn’t think that was possible. I freaking loved Evan. Evan had some major self-esteem issues when it came to June, but it actually made him a more likable character. I liked June as well – she really stood up for herself.
I will continue reading this series as long as books are coming out. I would recommend anything that Aurora Rose Reynolds writes.
