Anytime I heard someone speak of the boom, I laughed.
Surely only crazy people believe they can fall in love as soon as they lay eyes on someone.
I thought it was all in their heads until the moment she walked into my office asking for a job.
The instant my gaze locked with hers, I knew she was mine, and I would do anything in my power to protect her.
I never thought I would be applying for a job at a strip club, yet there I was.
When the stunning owner offered me a job, I thought taking off my clothes would be the most nerve wracking thing.
When I walked in the next morning, I found out I wouldn’t be stripping, I’d be working side by side with him.
It doesn’t make sense for a man like him to desire a woman like me—a woman with baggage and a past.
One phone call changes everything and I’m forced to realize that until Brandon, I might have had it hard, but with him I will have it all.
Until Brandon is part of Aurora Rose Reynold’s Happily Ever Alpha kindle world. I adore ARR so I was excited to hear about this world. I have never read a Natasha Madison book, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity!
Brandon is November’s step-brother. Its not necessary to know all the backstory with November to enjoy Brandon’s book; just know that he is connected to the ‘world’ via November and her dad, Mike. Brandon runs the strip club his step dad used to own. November helps with the books and they notice a discrepancy. Aurora is super down on her luck. Her parents died, leaving her to raise her teenage sister. Her teenage sister decided to rebel and got caught with a LOT of drugs. It took every penny Aurora had to get a lawyer. She walks into the club to get a job and BOOM. Brandon is in love. He hires her as his assistant and immediately begins to realize how down on her luck Aurora is.
I love the damsel in distress trope. Aurora was in college and doing fine until she was suddenly in charge of a teenager with a criminal record and no money. She is trying to get by, but life is tough. Brandon never believed in the boom until Aurora, but once he meets her, that is it. Damsel in distress, insta-love, and a dash of danger=happy Book Disciple!! I also loved that Cassie’s story (Aurora’s sister) is a bit of a mirror for Brandon’s story when he was her age. Very well done!
As a fan of insta-love and Aurora Rose Reynolds, Until Brandon gets 2 thumbs up and a stamp of approval from me! Also, I’m thrilled I have added another new to me author to love in Natasha Madison!
