~Review: Until Nico by Aurora Rose Reynolds~

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.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★

One word...Fan-Friggin-tastic!  Aurora Rose Reynolds knocked the ball out of the park with this amazing story about Nico Mayson and Sophie Grates.  The couple's journey begins with a lost cell phone and a telephone call to locate the owner.  Sophie doesn't even realize that she has lost her cell phone until she receives a call at work from Nico. He is leaving town but agrees to meet Sophie to return her lost cell phone.  Once, Nico sees her he knows, she is his and he's going to make sure she realizes that she belongs to him. 
"This cannot be fucking happening...his free hand goes into my hair, pulls my head back, and kisses me--no not kisses me...he consumes me."

Caught completely off guard, Sophie doesn't know what to think about Nico. He isn't like anyone she's ever known.  His body is covered with tattoos and he has piercings; he is the stereotypical bad boy that she has always stayed away from.  He also exudes an aura of gentleness under his rough exterior that she yearns to experience.  Recently moving from Seattle to Nashville, Sophie is trying to build a life for herself in a new place.  She has so many insecurities that her confidence waivers.  When her mother died, Sophie was left with a broken-hearted father that turned to alcohol and partying for comfort and forgetfulness.  

Nico is relentless in his pursuit of Sophie; not accepting "no" as an answer.  Sophie doesn't date or socialize; the demons from her past not allowing her to truly let loose and live.  Nico is determined to break through the barriers she has erected and make her his.  Sophie is the soft to his hard; on the outside they might not appear to match, but their attraction to each other is magnetic drawing them to each other.

This story is extraordinarily well written and flows great.  Aurora Rose Reynolds knows how to capture the reader in the world of the Mayson brothers resulting in hours of entertainment and blissful happiness.  Thank you for sharing your story with us!  I can't wait for Kenton's story.~flo
