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
upsidedown. 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.

Excerpt: Until Nico
I look around and see a guy staring at me. He’s about my age, not much taller than
my five feet five inches, cute, and wearing a suit and tie. I start to wave to see if
he’s the one I’m meeting, but then another guy catches my attention. He’s about six
three and huge, and I don’t mean just in height; his body looks like it’s been
chiseled from stone. He’s wearing black boots, washedout blue jeans, and a white
tshirt, and every piece of skin exposed is covered with tattoos. His ears have those
gauge thingies in them. His dark blond hair is cut low on the sides, and the top is in
a fauxhawk. His jaw is strong, with a few days of stubble, and his eyes are so blue
that they almost look like contacts. He is beautiful in a way that is unusual but no
His eyes come to me before looking away quickly, and the next second, they come
back to me and do a headtotoe sweep. I gulp at the intense expression on his
face. I glance past him to the other guy—or at least try to—but Mr. Tattoo starts
towards me, blocking my view. I want to take a step back, but I can’t go anywhere.
Then I see my phone in his hand.
“This yours?” he asks.
I nod like an idiot. He shakes his head, running his free hand down his face, and
then his eyes sweep over me again.
“You have got to be fucking kidding me,” he says, seeming upset.
I look down at myself, wondering how I could’ve offended him. I look normal—or
my workingoutsidethehouse normal. When I’m at home working, I wear baggy
sweats I cut off to make shorts or pajama pants that hang off of me along with tank
tops or Tshirts. The few days a week I get out of the house, I like to dress up or at
least wear heels.
“This cannot be fucking happening,” he growls, and I wonder if he is completely
“What?” I ask, finally finding my voice. I have to tilt my head way back; even in my
fourinch heels, he still towers over me.
“Me, what?” I ask, confused.
“Never mind. Who is this?” He presses the button on my phone, the screen lights
up, and a picture of Jamie Dornan wearing nothing but a pair of jeans takes up the
“Um…that’s Jamie,” I reply, wondering why he is asking but too afraid to ask him; the look on his face isn’t very inviting for conversation.
“He your man?”
“I wish,” I mumble under my breath and hear him growl.
My head flies back as I search his face; his jaw is ticking, and his knuckles of the
hand holding my phone are turning white.
“What does that mean?” he asks.
“That’s Jamie Dornan. He’s playing Fifty. I don’t know him.” I feel my cheeks heat
up and look down at my feet.
What the hell’s wrong with me? Why am I not afraid right now? I have been
scared of virtually everything my whole life, and now, when I should be running for
cover, I’m not scared at all. Just a little embarrassed.
“I don’t have time for this,” he says, and I don’t know what he’s talking about, but
I all of a sudden really want my phone out of his hand before he crushes it to
When I look up again, I see that he is walking away. My eyebrows come together,
and I wonder what he is doing. Then I realize he still has my cell.
“Hey! You can’t steal my phone!” I run after him, grabbing his arm.
He looks down at me then stops short. I’m completely caught off guard when he
wraps an arm around my waist, pulling me flush against him. His free hand goes
into my hair and pulls my head back, and then he kisses me. No, not kisses—he
consumes me. My body starts to buzz like someone just plugged me into an
electrical outlet, and I start to feel lightheaded. When he pulls his mouth from mine,
I gasp, my fingers going to my lips.
“What was that?” I whisper, looking into his eyes.
“What’s your name?” he asks, still holding me close.
“Sophie,” I tell him, my answer spoken behind my fingers.
His body is as hard as a rock against mine; I can feel every muscle, every contour,
and it takes everything in me to keep breathing. I realize this is the first time in my
life I have ever felt small, my curvy figure never having allowed it before.
“Sophie,” he repeats, standing up to his full height and pulling me with him. I look around and wonder if time has stopped for anyone else. “My name is Nico.”
“Of course it is,” I say, staring into his amazing eyes, thinking that a guy who looks
like him would have a name like that—cool and hot, something that rolls easily off
your tongue but is hard to forget.
“I’ll see you when I get back into town, Sophie,” he says as he lets me go, making
sure I’m steady on my feet.
“What?” I ask, looking around again.
“Here’s your phone.” He hands me my cell, and I’m still a little lightheaded when he
starts to walk off again. I watch in a daze as he leaves, but then he turns around to
face me from a few yards away. “Sophie?”
“Change the picture on your phone,” he demands before he turns and disappears
into the crowd
WOW. WOW. WOW.
Aurora Rose Reynolds is one of my favourite authors. And when this series lands in my inbox I am SO excited, like a kid at Christmas receiving the best gift. This series is amazing. And I don't know about you, but I seriously want a Mayson brother for myself.
If you haven't read any of the books in this series, you REALLY, REALLY don't know what your missing. And I strongly advise you to start from the beginning.
Until Nico, Is AMAZING. Nico is one of the Mayson brothers, he worked in construction with Asher, Trevor and Cash but sold his share to go and work for his cousin Kenton. Nico is built, has tattoos. And the Mayson curse has hit as soon as he sees Sophie. A school Librarian.
I love this series. It pulls you in from the first pages. You would expect that even though we are on the fourth book, and you can read them as stand alone, but I wouldn't recommend it, that the stories would start getting a bit washed out or you think they should of been finished at three books.
THIS IS SO NOT THE CASE WITH THESE BOOKS, IN FACT, YOU WANT TO KEEP READING ON AND ON.
I really cant pick my favourite of the Mayson brothers, they are all my favourite. They are all Hot, Alpha Sexy men who idolise there women and families. What more could you ask. I love that even though these books are about one of the brothers at a time the rest of them are still in there.
This book was read in one go. Once you start you cant help getting sucked in to the Mayson Brother world. It's essential you read it in one go. Just make sure that you have no disruptions. You will not want to be disturbed.
Aurora, This series is exceptional. The Characters are amazingly written. Until Nico is Fantastic, thrilling, sexy. And everything you could want out of a book.
I give this 5/5 stars and 5/5 stars for movie moments.
