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.
I’ve been anxiously waiting for Sage Mayson and Kim Cullen’s story since readers were given insight into what went down between them and the irreparable damage Sage seemed to cause by simply reacting instead of taking the time to choose his words wisely and offer Kim a chance to explain. I have to admit that Sage’s overreaction didn’t surprise me because all of the Mayson men seem to fly off the handle fairly easily, but I also wasn’t too worried about Sage losing any chance he had with Kim because what’s also common knowledge about these alpha males is that once they feel the BOOM, they’ll do whatever it takes to claim the woman who holds his heart.
“Life sometimes sucks for awhile, but when you’re feeling good and happy, you realize why you had to go through what you went through. You realize if you hadn’t, you wouldn’t have had a chance at the happiness you were feeling.”
Sage and Kim both need to remember this advice and realize that even though they messed up their shot at a relationship with one another by overreacting and running away, there’s always another chance to make things right…to grab hold of their happy…to claim their BOOM…to face their fears…to risk their heart for the right person.
Until Sage focuses on Sage and Kim’s journey back to one another, proving to each other that it doesn’t matter that they hardly know anything about the other one because what’s clear is that there’s a connection between them that is meant to be explored and because they are so affected by one another’s presence, there’s no way that they’re not meant to be together, even when missteps occur.
Aurora Rose Reynolds does a good job of keeping the story line of Until Sage about Sage and Kim making up for lost time and working towards building something that lasts. There isn’t any drama that’s added that doesn’t help the couple see exactly what they mean to each other, and while some of their actions are frustrating to witness, it’s all a part of learning to trust…learning to love the person who’s claimed not only your body but your heart as well.
The BOOM definitely comes quickly in Until Sage, but just like all of the other books in Reynolds’ Until series, the couple has to put effort into forming a bond because the appearance of one’s other half only takes them so far…it’s the work that’s done after the initial introduction that makes or breaks them.
4 Poison Apples
“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.”
