Publisher's Summary

Focus.

Dean Goldsmith is Indiana University's star quarterback, and his dreams are about to come true. His undefeated season means he has a legitimate shot at the NFL. If he stays focused. Football comes first.

College senior Grace Yeates is determined to defy the odds. She is months away from graduating with a business degree, something no one thought she would be able to pull off. All she has to do is focus on her number one priority. Family comes first.

Distraction.

Dean has no time for distractions, but when a gorgeous, snarky, redheaded waitress refuses to tell him her name, he can't seem to focus on anything else. Grace knows she can't let herself get caught up in a guy, particularly a man-whore like Dean, no matter how charming or sexy. She has two hearts to look out for now and no room for a Dean-sized distraction.

Complications.

Everyone in Dean's life agrees that Grace is the kind of complication his career doesn't need. Grace knows that Dean is the kind of risk her heart shouldn't want. But what if the last person you think you need, the one you shouldn't want, becomes the one you can't live without? Can their biggest distraction actually be the focus they were missing all along?

LOVED it!

I loved this audio book so much. The storyline had me hooked from the beginning. I loved all the characters so much. The narrator did a fantastic job with each character. Kept my attention throughout the whole book. Definitely recommend this one!

Listening was as much fun as reading the book.

If you could sum up Until Now in three words, what would they be?

Heartwarming, charming and sexy -- not sure of the order.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved both Grace and Dean but it was Just Finn that stole my heart.

What about Lori Prince’s performance did you like?

I loved the enthusiasm and humor Lori brought to Just Finn's character. I laughed out loud more than once.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, I both laughed and cried while listening to this book. As I have already mentioned, Finn was a delightful character who made me laugh on more than one occasion. Certainly had to laugh at the siblings' introductions to Grace. Classic funny stuff. Also I will admit to getting teary eyed during the Christmas scenes, both at Grace's apartment and at Dean's family home, loved the warmth the author brought to the characters.

Any additional comments?

I have read the book twice and listened to the audio twice, I guess you would say I am a fan of this book and of this author.

Wonderful!

I just loved this! Dean and Grace were such a great couple and I enjoyed the slow buildup to their romance. Dean learned what being a man was truly about and Grace was finally able to open her heart. This was not an insta-love romance and it was great to see realistic and relatable characters dealing with problems in a mature fashion. So many sensitive issues were dealt with in their story and the writing was always respectful. The narration was terrific and I had a great listening experience. I would recommend this.

Good book

I liked the story. It had real life issues with fairytale endings. It had some sensitive issues but the author wrote them in a respectable way. I would recommend this story if you like love and happy endings, but beware might have a few tears. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

AMAZING!!

This book truly was amazing. it isn't often that a book so moves me that i literally can't stop reading, or listening in this case- but this book was one of them. i wasn't sure i would like Dean at first- he is cocky and arrogant- but gosh he really is an amazing H. The h is really great too. There is sex- but it really is a slow burn type book and the addition of her child is just so perfect. Dean was just so great.

the narration on this book it totally on point and really easy to listen to.

Wonderful Surprise

I received this book via Audiobook Boom for an honest review and I was pleasantly surprised.

The story was a wonderful romance. In book one you met Dean and he was a self centered ladies man so it was nice to see him get knocked right down in love. Watching the way he changed and what a great man he became was fun.

Sometimes it can be rough dealing with a single mom in books but this one was written just right. The balance between kid time and romance building was just right.

Until Now

What a great book! I fell in love with all of the characters. The story was a sweet slow burn and that made it even better in my eyes. Narrator did a great job. This book is worth every penny!
