Review ~~ Until Now by Laura Ward
Until Now (Not Yet Series, #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?
***TERA’S 3.75 Star REVIEW***
This is the first book I have read of the Not Yet series and my first book by Laura Ward. I was thoroughly impressed. It reads perfectly fine as a standalone, so if you haven’t read Not Yet, there is no problem following the story line.
Focus. Dean focuses on football. Grace on graduation. Distraction. Dean gets distracted by Grace. Grace gets distracted by Dean. Complications. Of course these happen… with a nice twist. Laura definitely has talent, and I will read more of her books.
The story was fast paced and could easily make you smile. My biggest issue with this story is the fact that Grace had always been so headstrong and independent, but yet I felt she fell hard, and too easily for Dean in someone in her situation. I thought it almost contradicted her character. That being said, I thought the book was too fast paced at the end. Without spoiling anything, again, I feel someone in Grace’s position would definitely take more time with her heart. Not that Dean isn’t swoon-worthy, he most definitely is. I give this a 3.5-4 stars. A good, fast read.
