Until Sage

Meet Sage & Kimberly in Until Sage by Aurora Rose Reynolds


Sage Mayson had Kimberly Cullen once, and the memory of that brief encounter has tortured him since the moment he pushed her away. He should have followed his gut, but he didn’t, and now he’s left watching the woman he wants more than anything from afar.

Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he’s the one person she finds herself leaning on.

Getting a second chance is something Sage knows is rare. He’s not going to squander the one he’s been given, and he won’t take no for an answer when it comes to making Kim his.

But what Sage doesn’t know is Kim has a secret that could leave them both devastated and heartbroken. 


“He apologized. Don’t you think you should do the polite thing and at least hear him out?” 

“I don’t know.” 

“You don’t know, or you’re just too scared to find out what will happen if you do?”

“Do we have to do this right now?” I sigh, and he tosses his arm around my shoulders and pulls me into his side. 

“We’ve been doing this for months now. I’ve seen the way you look at him when you think no one will notice, and I see the way he looks at you, not giving a fuck if everyone sees. Even when he thought you and I were a thing, he still made it perfectly clear to those who were watching that if by some chance he got a shot, you would be his.”

“I really think you are reading way too much into this.”

“Am I?”

This book is a confusing one for me because I really enjoyed reading about Sage and Kim but I did have some issues with the overall story, so choosing a rating was hard. 

Sage and Kim are a couple I've been waiting for for what seems like forever but I was trying really hard to not get myself overly excited for their story. I didn't want to get myself too excited to where nothing could meet my expectations since that would just be a disappointment. Somehow I was able to go into this really calm and I actually ended up loving their relationship. 

Yes I was hoping for a lot of groveling on Sage's part and was a little sad that we didn't get that. But I still really loved how he was with Kim and it was like reading a classic ARR Hero. His pure Alpha-ness was just swoon worthy and had me begging for more of him by the end. 

Why I had a hard time rating this book though was because I also had some issues with the writing that kind of took away from how much I was loving Sage and Kim together. After waiting so long for them to finally get together I wish we would have seen more of what happened in the beginning of their relationship. There were a few off-the-pages scenes that I just really wish we could have seen. A big one was that we never actually got to see what happened with Kim's twin when Sage thought she was Kim. Since that was their big blow up I just felt like it was something that should have been shown. 

Also Kim's health issues kind of bothered me. We were told over and over again that she had problems with her kidney's, which we knew from a past book, yet it wasn't exactly explained. What exactly was her health issue? It just seemed odd to me that it was never really revealed. 

Bottom line, despite my problems with a few things in the story I really did enjoy reading this one. It's definitely a recommend from me, but be aware that this really shouldn't be read as a standalone.
