Until You by Jennifer McNare Book Summary

He swore he'd never love again...
She'd risk her ravaged heart time and again to prove him wrong...

Much to his aggravation, the wickedly handsome Duke of Sethe is wanted by every husband-hunting, title-chasing female in the country, or so it seems.  

Twice betrayed by women he loved, Nicholas Leighton is no longer the gullible young fool he was in his youth.  Having grown cold and cynical, as well as older and wiser, he has vowed to never again allow another woman to affect him emotionally, for he has learned his lessons and learned them well.  So, when the breathtakingly lovely Ashleigh St. John suddenly and unexpectedly enters his life, as well as his home, he is determined to keep the alluring interloper at an emotional and physical distance.  Unfortunately, he quickly discovers that some things are easier said than done.

Reckless and daring, Ashleigh St. John is an unconventional young lady with the heart of a hopeless romantic.  When she meets Nicholas Leighton she knows she has met the man of her dreams, but unfortunately, the man of her dreams seems bound and determined to keep her at a distance, hiding behind a self-erected wall of cool detachment and calculated indifference.   Willing to do almost anything to break through the intractable barriers that guard his heart, she will willingly surrender her innocence, and time and again risk her ravaged heart to ultimately win his trust, and more importantly, his love.

Book 1 - Until You (Nicholas)

Until You (Jennifer McNare) Book Reviews

Great storyI started reading and couldn't stop. Finished it in one day, this doesn't happen normally for me. I am buying the next story, want to see what happens with the rest of the characters..Score: 5/5

Perfect !!!!!!A must read! And i truly Love it .. Enjoy !!!.Score: 5/5

A good read!Very engaging read! I like the plot though I personally found some parts a bit repetitive which made me skip them ; but overall, I enjoyed this book and will look forward to reading more from this author..Score: 4/5

Until YouThis is my first Judith McNare book. I enjoyed the story and the two main characters. I will admit the I skipped about 50 or 60 pages when I was about 3/4 of the way finished with the book. There was just one too many events that caused the Nicholas and Ashleigh to be star-crossed lovers. I don't normally skip pages in a book - especially when I have read 500 of the total 650 page count. I simply could not go Thru another catastrophe on the part of Nicholas. I'm looking forward to reading her next book..Score: 5/5

UnexpectedI must admit that when I first started reading this story I thought it was boring. However the more I read it I love it. It's a good read..Score: 5/5

Its Decent.I liked the storyline. I would have liked a stronger heroine. She let Nick hurt her two many times. It was disappointing! But otherwise it was ok..Score: 3/5

CleverMy first book by this author and I was impressed. Very clever written but I wish there was a villain to make the book more interesting..Score: 4/5

Fantastic!I truly loved this book! The characters were believable,and the descriptive text made me feel as if I were there amongst the ton. Not too descriptive or explicit when they were being intimate either,too much can ruin a book for me. I'm going to try another by this wonderful author right now!!!.Score: 5/5

Until youDidn’t care for the either of the characters. Nicholas was a jerk and ashleigh was a pushover. Story was alright though..Score: 3/5

Good readAt first I couldn't get into the book, and honestly I almost stopped reading it. I'm so glad I didn't because I loved it once the pace picked up a bit, I had a hard time putting it down. This book was an easy, and good read overall. I'm giving this book a 4 star rating only because some of the details in the story were drug out and they were pretty much unnecessary details. I'm looking forward to reading more by this Author in the future!!.Score: 4/5

Not goodIt bothers me greatly that somewhere out there is a 14, 15, 16 or so year old girl reading this book and finding an ounce if romance in this book. Nicholas is abusive - emotionally, physically and sexually. Ashleigh has to almost die to get an ounce of mercy from him, and forgives when she should run for her life. Never mind that Ashleigh is 17 and Nicholas 29. It would have killed the author to make her the current legal age? Run from this book and never waste your time in a guy like Nicholas..Score: 2/5

Fun and entertaining :)It was fun and written very well. The author kept you on your toes the whole time with a few twists in between. It wasn't your typical love story but it was filled with a lot of emotion. It was a little long but it was worth the read :).Score: 4/5

Until YouRemind me of Judith Mcnaught books.........Score: 3/5

ReviewI liked the book, however, in order for it to be a great book it needs some changes. The writer asked for comments so I would suggest the following: There is a scene where Ashleigh meets her Uncle James in the garden and Nick sees them. Nick thinks she is cheating and almost rapes her. This entire scene needs to be completely removed! This is horrific and makes it hard to like Nick after that. This scene doesn’t add any enjoyment to the reader. There are too many “misunderstandings” between Nick and Ashleigh. I don’t even remember how many times Nick got mad at Ashleigh and called her horrible names and she kept forgiving him. I have no problem with a few misunderstandings in books. It adds to the drama, but there were just too many of them. Also, there is too much detail given on every dress Ashleigh wears. That much detail is fine for a ball dress or wedding dress but other than that it slows the story down and bores the reader. Finally, more words don’t make a book better. All that said, I did like the book, I just didn’t love it. With changes made, I could love it..Score: 3/5

OMGThis was an amazing romance! Half the time I wanted to reach into the story and shake Nicolise and yell at him! He got me so angry!!!! Lol I apsilutly loved the tale though.Score: 5/5

Wonderful new author.I really enjoyed this book. I like a hero with a bit of baggage, and a heroine willinging to fight for the man she loves. Looking forward to reading the author's other books. Hopefully they are as good as this one!.Score: 5/5

Thinly veiled abuseReading this book made me both angry and sad at the same time. I LOVE romance novels, their escapism and flights of fancy can engage the imagination and create fun divertissement. In contrast this book tells the story of a female character who time and again is the subject of vicious attacks from her "unwilling" paramour. He repeatedly degrades her, belittles her, violently shakes her, and threatens her. This is not to mention their sexual encounters where he blames his attraction on her, takes her virginity while he is drunk, then gets a hairs breadth away from raping her, AND SHE COMES BACK EVERY TIME! This book is the kind of stuff that supports the erroneous assumption that if a woman loves a man enough that he can change, that a man who is abusive will stop being abusive. In the real world it is that kind of thinking that keeps women trapped in their abuser's web potentially getting them killed. Even this is alluded to since his father killed his mother! I am appalled that a woman, a writer with the opportunity to uplift women, would instead choose to perpetuate a repressive cycle of abuse. Readers, if you choose to read this book, PLEASE read with a conscious mind aware of the negative messages held within..Score: 1/5

Until YouThe twists and turns of the plot kept me turning pages. For someone who loves vocabulary, I find that Jennifer McNare has an incredible ability to use a vast amount of words to create a very vivid tale!! Great job!!.Score: 5/5

For JenniferJennifer, you said you read these and appreciate feedback. I usually don't write reviews, but if I can be of help, I will write one for you. I enjoyed reading your book. (Excuse my spelling of names.). Ashleigh was very sweet, patient, smart, and talented. I liked her and cried with her. But I couldn't understand why in the world she would give her heart to Nicholas. He was so, so mean. Usually in real life when a man has had an abusive father, and he starts down an abusive path (like Nicholas was treating Ashleigh), he wouldn't be able to just turn around and be so loving like your hero/villain did. So, that part of the story made me become un-absorbed, brought me back to reality, so to speak. But, keep writing:).Score: 4/5

Until youSuch a great story, I took almost a full day to read it! I couldn't put it down! I'm a helpless romantic of course and so I absolutely loved this story and I believe it was very well put together. I agree with the other reviewers, I would love to read about Alex and Tiffany! Also, about who tames Brendon!.Score: 5/5

Until You. OceanrosebudAnother beautiful love story that is well written by McNare! The two main characters are well developed with personalities that are so believable that you are immediately caring about their lives and their love. Ashleigh and Nicolas are both strong personalities that carry this book quickly along. You find that you must keep reading until the very last page. A beautifully written love story that you will not want to put down. Read this novel as you will not be sorry! I just read some reviews that said that Nicolas wasabusive-emotionally. McNare spends time at the beginning of the book laying groundwork for his personality having anger issues with women but really only with Ashleigh because of his love for her which frightens him. Ashleigh is a young woman granted I would have liked her to be older perhaps 20 or 21 having been living with her grandfather isolated in the country, thus never having been jaded by society. I think under aged kids should not be reading these novels anyway--so it is not the author's job to "soften" the characters but the parents to check the downloaded books their children read. And how many of them will be reading Fifty Shades of Gray? I bet all the ones that can sneak a copy. Signed a former teacher and still a mother!.Score: 5/5
