June Mayson and Evan Barrister’s whirlwind courtship resulted in a secret marriage right before he left for boot camp. Evan knows deep in his gut that June is too good for him, but after getting a taste of the beautiful life they can have together, he’s unwilling to let her go. June promises to wait for him, knowing neither time or distance will ever change her feelings for Evan—that is until she’s served with divorce papers while he’s overseas and she’s forced to let him go.
Her marriage and divorce a well-kept secret, the last person June expects to run into when she moves back to her hometown is Evan. Angry over the past, she does everything within her power to ignore the pull she feels whenever he is near. But how can she ignore the pain she sees every time their eyes meet? How can she fight the need to soothe him even if she knows she’s liable to get hurt once again?
Is it possible for June and Evan to find their way back to each other again? Or will they be stopped by an outside force before they ever have a shot?
With every book that Aurora Rose Reynolds write in regards to these series, I think I not only fall in love with not just the new characters we meet, but I also fall even more in love with the original ones as well. I love the way Ms. Reynolds has been able to continue on a series with their children but in doing it in a way that it stays fresh and each book is emotional in its own way.
I think June and Evan’s hit a special place in my heart for one very huge reason. My husband was in the military, I know I have mentioned this before, but unless you have been in a relationship or married to an active duty military member you really won’t know exactly what it is like to see the person you love become withdrawn or to try to protect you from their demons after being at war. My heart broke for both June and Evan but I will admit I think it broke more for Evan because you could not only feel his regrets but could understand why he tried to protect June the way he did even if it meant breaking each other’s hearts.
June also holds a place in my heart because I know how hard that type of life is, and while I hated that she was broken over his actions maybe they needed that time to not only grow individually but to also know what it means to be apart. Evan if at times she may have seemed too innocent to what was happening around her, she would do something to contradict it and show she was stronger than she may seem. I loved how she was, not only with her sisters but her dad especially. That is how a family should be.
Until June may only be the second book in the Until Her series, but for fans from the beginning it is just another reason to wish the Boom happened to you, but it reminds us why we initially fell in love with the Mayson brothers and now their children in their books. I wish we had the next book right now because this book whore just can’t seem to get enough from this series and this author.

But the memories of us are killing me slowly. They remind me that for one moment I had everything while reminding me it’s gone. It’s the realization that we’re done that’s killing me. The realization that I can see him but can’t touch him that he exist but he’s not mine is agonizing.
