Until You is a short, sweet and sexy read about falling in love and healing old wounds.
It is a prequel in The Renegades Series about Sam Morris and Trina Kidd.
Trina never imagined she'd end up in bed with a hot surfer dude when she set out for a quiet getaway from the chaos that was her life. Her family meant well, but they were smothering her. She needed to get away.
The beach was her escape. It was her retreat away from the mess her life had become. Being there did something magical to her. It slowed her pulse, it captivated her senses, it took away all her stress. The soft lapping of the waves, the heat of the sun and the welcoming sand molding around her feet; it was her paradise.
Her drop dead gorgeous neighbor wasn't too bad either. Dirty blond hair, sparkling blue eyes and a panty dropping smile. That sexy smile made her feel like a nervous schoolgirl. Being close to him was the first she had felt alive in a long time. Her life has been hell the past year. She felt fortunate to come out the other side unscathed. Now it was time for her to take time and regroup.
One night with Sam was a perfect distraction. A distraction that she needed more than she knew. Trina found herself wrapped up in his charm and good looks. He was handsome and genuine in every way that she needed right now. He was an adventure that she desperately needed in her life. Unfortunately, her personal demons threatened to keep her from true happiness. It might be time for her and her dog Toby to run again.
Sam was a professional hockey player from the west coast. He had a rough season riddled with injuries and couldn't shake the stink of not even coming close to being in the playoffs. He needed to get away. He needed to clear his head before he embarked on a summer of family obligations. Hiding out on the east coast with his dog sounded like a good place to start. A nice quiet, peaceful beach vacation. Until he met Trina.
The moment he laid eyes on her he was smitten. Sam hadn't crushed on a girl like this since junior high. That one night changed everything. He knew what his life had been missing: her. Trina was more than one night stand material. She was a woman that deserved love and devotion. He wanted to give that to her and wasn't going to leave without her.

Introduces the Pittsburgh Renegades series a little. Surfer Sam plays hockey in California. He meets Trina at the beach in Delaware. Turns out that Trina sings the National Anthem in Winnipeg and her brother plays hockey in Pittsburgh. Trina has many problems that she is dealing with. I liked that Trina came to trust Sam. I also liked that Sam earned her trust. They were a good couple who learned that communication could deal with whatever was given to them. There is not much hockey but there is some hot sex. I look forward to reading the full series since my appetite for the Renegades has been whetted.
~~~RECEIVED FOR HONEST REVIEW~~~ Learning to let go of the past to be able to move on and love again. How can you possibly mess that up or do they? If you haven't yet, pick you up a copy and read more!
I enjoyed reading about Trina and Sam. This was a really quick, but enjoyable read. Both had gone to the beach for their own reasons. Both had dogs. Both loved hockey. I liked the romance that bloomed, even though it developed rather quickly. Much better than a one-night stand. I am ready for the series so I can meet Trina's brother, Tyler, as well as some of his teammates. I was excited to read that Trina and Sam will also be in the series. ARC provided in exchange for honest review.
This book was a great little read. The characters Trina and Sam are great together. They have been out of the dating game for a while, but when they meet, they just can't help but give in to their attraction. The bedroom scenes are well described, and the scene is also described in a way that you can picture the beach. You can relate to Trina's hesitations and insecurities, and they make you want to be her friend, give her a hug and console her. Sam and his surfer-boy good looks are hot. I love hockey players, so that was an added bonus. His adoration for his niece makes you love him. I greatly enjoyed the story. I would have liked a little more depth to the back story, but this is a solid story for the author's first work.
