A single dad, forced proximity, standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg.
Crew Madden needs to find a place to recover.For his twin girls.For himself.From the woman who left them without a backward glance.
Recovering from a traumatic event, a summer in the small town of Redemption Falls was the perfect solution for him. For his family. The only drawback? The rental cottage at the end of the drive.
But then he met its tenant.
The quiet, guarded, sexy-as-sin woman who took Crew’s breath away.---Tennyson West moved to Redemption Falls to hide.From her previous world of abundance.From the woman she used to be.For a chance to start over . . . and be free.
She’s settled into her new life on the outskirts of a small town, content with her solitude. Her peaceful life.
And then she met her new landlord.
Crew Madden—and his sweet daughters—entered her life with a bang. She learned how to laugh again, to love again, something she never thought would be possible.
It was only meant to be a summer fling, but as demons from their past knocked on the door, their relationship was tested. Was their love strong enough to keep them together or would danger drive them apart for good?
Until You is the story of two people on the run from their lives. Crew’s wife has left him, and he is on leave from his job as a police officer after a traumatic event. Tennyson, Tenny, is hiding away from her previous life. These two try to fight the feelings, but we all know how that ends up!
Kids in a romance are hit or miss for me. Sometimes they are bratty or filled with trauma that requires a lot of attention. Crew’s girls were great-sassy and enjoyable. They are not toddlers but preteens so that adds to their sass as well. And he is a great dad! Both Crew and Tenny have heartbreaking pasts and its makes you want the best for them both. They are great together but they go into this thinking it is just temporary. So, that adds to the tension of the story for sure. Tenny’s past could put them in danger and she doesn’t want to risk Crew or the girls.
This story is all about the “trust fall” for all of them! Wonderful characters and a truly delightful romance! Just the right mix of tension, steam, and heart. I just loved it!

authors like Corinne Michaels, AL Jackson, SL Scott…then you will probably like Until You!
I do think it takes a right kind of balance to have kids written into the story! So I definitely feel that. But it sounds like it was written so well on this. I do adore K Bromberg though!
