Part of the Happily Ever Alpha world
If you've read any of Aurora Rose Reynolds "Until" books then you know they always have a hot alpha male, and are really fun to read. With Boom Factory Publishing, she's expanded her universe to have other authors write standalone, but connecting in some way or another (either location or previous characters) romances in the same universe. This is a great idea - building off of her success while at the same time spotlighting different writers. It also gives fans little snippets of the stories they love from the Until series - great marketing and everybody wins. I was excited to dive into this universe again with Until Sadie, by new-to-me author Sarah Curtis. Curtis didn't disappoint. This book had the same fun, romancy elements as other books in the Happily Ever Alpha world, with a sexy alpha male in the form of Dean. It also had the boom factor - if you've read any books in this world than you know the idea of boom - getting hit with insta-love when you find your significant other - and just knowing that she is the one. Such a sweet concept.
When Dean meets Sadie, he is struck hard and he just knows that he has to make her his. Unfortunately, his life is a bit complicated at the moment and he doesn't want to lose Sadie while he is waiting for things to calm down. He wasn't expecting to get hit by Cupid's arrow, it just sort of happened - and at an inconvenient time. For Sadie's part she is fine to take things slow. But when she does find herself falling hard for Dean, will she be able to handle his secrets? When all is revealed, will their boom factor stand up to the hit?
I liked Dean and Sadie's romance and I liked how possessive, jealous and all around alpha-like Dean is. I mean what woman doesn't want an alpha male - even if they can be a bit growly at times. Sadie is a sweet character and easy to like, but she wasn't so good that she got on my nerves - which is a definite plus. The two of them together was a joy to read and I was rooting for them to make it. If you like swoony heroes who fall hard, and romantic stories with a bit of suspense, you'll like this book. You can read it on its own - although it does mention some characters that we have met in other books. I think this just made me want to go and read the series again, and find any books that I might have missed. Until Sadie is a great addition to the Happily Ever Alpha world, and it also made me want to read more from this author.

I write steamy contemporary romance novels about sexy alpha males and the heroines who steal their hearts.
On a personal note, I'm addicted to coffee, Red Bull, Lay's potato chips, and my Kindle. When I'm not writing—which is hardly ever, hence the addiction to coffee and Red Bull—I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and watching football—Go Pack Go!
