My recommendation: Read it
Summary from goodreads.com:
Sophie Grates has never had it easy, but she’s finding her way through life one step and one day at a time. That is, Until Nico comes in and flips her world upside-down. He forces her to see you cannot live life from the outside looking in, and sometimes you have to step out onto the ledge so you can really enjoy the view.
Nico Mayson knew the moment he saw Sophie Grates that she was the one. His whole life, he has been judged by what’s on the outside, so finding a beautiful woman who sees the real him only makes his feelings that much stronger.
Nico knows the kind of man he is, and the things he is capable of, and he will do everything in his power to help Sophie fight her demons so they can have their happily ever after. Everything in life worth having is worth fighting for.
Until Nico is the final book (sadly) in the Until series, and probably my least favorite. While I LOVE the Mayson boys and I loved Nico, I just didn’t love this book as much as the others. Here are some of the things I didn’t love:
1. Sophie’s “trauma”. I understand that all experiences affect people differently, but her “trauma” didn’t seem bad enough to affect her life the way it did.
2. Sophie’s “stalker” or whatever you want to call it was super predictable, and at the end, wasn’t explained well and didn’t make much sense.
3. Nico’s insistence on “putting a baby” in Sophie when they had only been together a few months.
4. The whole story line surrounding Sophie’s father.
5. The fact that this series is over.
Here are some things I did love:
1. Nico. He is such an alpha. ARR alphas rival Kristen Ashley’s more than any other author I’ve read.
2. Kenton/Leo/Sven – the guys the spin-off series will be about (please bring them on now)
3. The epilogue. I don’t normally love them, but since this was the end of the series, I seriously loved this one. It was great.
4. The Mayson kids of Asher, Trevor and Cash – despite their stupid names, they are great characters and made a bigger appearance in this book.
Overall, this was a decent finish to a fantastic series. I’m super bummed this series is over, but super excited to start the new series with Kenton. I hope he finds his “boom”.
