Review: Until Valerie by Jessica Marin


Published April 2019

Blurb: Opposites don’t just attract… sometimes they BOOM!


Valerie Dawson


All I’ve ever wanted is to make my father proud. All he ever wanted was sons. I’ve never felt like I was enough… then everything changes when I’m assigned to audit the Broken Eagle’s Motorcycle Shop and meet Rowan Pryor for the first time. The minute his eyes lock on mine, I know this gorgeous man is trouble. He’s looking at me as if I’m his everything, his eyes telling me he’s thinking of a thousand ways to get me dirty. And I like it.


But I have plans for myself and none of them include some hot, motorcycle guy in a small town.


Rowan Pryor


I traded a broken past for a brotherhood I could count on. War changes people, bonds them together, so when our time in the Navy is served, I join my fellow SEALS in Nashville to help start up a motorcycle repair shop. A big city guy like me is enjoying a distraction free small town life. But then Valerie Dawson walks into the shop, wearing those nerdy glasses like it’s her mission to steal my breath away and I know I’m in dangerous territory. She makes me feel things I never thought I could feel and I am determined to make her mine.


I didn’t believe in love at first sight… Until Valerie.


May be spoilers:

Until Valerie is part of the Happily Ever Alpha World series. Each is a standalone. This story has 18 chapters and an epilogue and is about Valerie and Rowan.

They meet when Valerie is called in to do an audit at the motorcycle repair shop where Rowan works. Definitely feeling the “Boom” on Rowan’s side.

We do get to see a little of Wes, Harlen and Z from Aurora Rose Reynolds Until series.

I absolutely loved this story. Even with the first kiss not until the 13th chapter, it was still pretty good. I smiled most of the way through.

The only drama is from the one who is stealing money, but it’s over pretty quickly and Valerie never doubts Rowan at all, which I thought was awesome.

Really great read. This is the 1st story that I’ve read by this author, and it was really great. No separations, no cheating, no ow/om drama other than the bad guy.

Epilogue is about a year down the road. They have just gotten married. I do wish that we could see further down the road, but I do have to say, that I feel this couple will make it to the end. They were just perfect together. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.  Thanks for reading. Hope you check it out.
