Review: Until Now by Laura Ward


Title – Until Now
Author – Laura Ward
Published – May 23, 2016
Series – Not Yet, #2


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.

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.

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?





Until Now (Not Yet, #2)

Until Now by Laura Ward

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Until Now by Laura Ward is a beautiful love story and I quite enjoyed reading it. Before continuing I would like to say that this the second book in the Not Yet Series but can be read as a standalone, which is how I read it.
I was very impressed by the heroine, Grace Yeates. Life hasn’t been fair to her and she has been through a lot of bad things. But she is handling everything life throws at her and that too with grace.
Her strength is what I loved the most. Dean Goldsmith is my favorite kind of hero, yep you guessed it right- the manwhore who does a complete 180.

All the other characters in this book contribute to making it a beautiful story and a compelling read. Also, this story has the charming element of familial love which has the habit of bringing along with it, some funny, cherishable and heart-warming moments.
All in all a great book to read and I would definitely recommend it.
