Until Now by Kate Hawthorne

Nicole says "I have been dying to see how Wyatt and Grant get their HEA, as soon as I could get my hands on it it leapfrogged 7 other books to the top of my TBR pile!!!!  I have been impatiently waiting for Until Now since the moment I finished Not Allowed, and it did not disappoint.:"  Heather wholeheartedly agrees...

From the blurb:

Wyatt and Grant still aren't allowed to want each other.

In the midst of a divorce he should have seen coming from the start, Wyatt finds himself back in North Edgewood, back at his dad's house, back next door to Grant Harding. It's been ten years since the two men have spoken, ten years since they've seen each other, but it doesn't take long for either of them to realize that--for the fire burning between them--ten years is no time at all.

Grant has spent the decade wondering what his life would have been like if he'd had the courage to speak up when Wyatt professed his love. Convinced too much has gone unsaid for too long, he believes the only things that can exist between them are silence and space. But when Wyatt corners him alone one night, old emotions flare and that idea goes right out the window.

Grant and Wyatt find it's far too easy falling back into old habits. It's weeks of secret encounters, stolen kisses, and--this time--quiet declarations that threaten the foundations of both of their lives. Ten years spent yearning for each other has to have been enough. Ten years of love lost has led them to this moment. To the brink of a lifetime of devotion they'd never been allowed to have.

Until now.

Until Now is a 60,000 word romance that brings around the conclusion of Wyatt and Grant's romance. This book has on page power exchange and BDSM between consenting adults.

Nicole's Review:

Kate did an amazing job at layering these characters and showing their growth over the last 10 years. Both Wyatt and Grant have enough internal struggles that the only external struggle they need to face is how to tell Adam about their newly rekindled relationship. I honestly was surprised at how tender and sweet the affection outside of the bedroom is between them, and knew that Kate was going to hit us with a mean twist to shake things up. 

Be prepared!  This second chance romance is one of the more realistic I've read in a long time.  I also really appreciated how Wyatt’s struggle with his divorce evolved through the story. It was so realistically portrayed on how his internal turmoil presented at different phases. 

As always Kate can write some amazingly hot smexy scenes, and Wyatt’s surprise gift to Grant was just perfect! I really love these characters and am so sad to say goodbye. I’d love a novella or return to see Robin get his HEA!

Rating: 5 Stars

Heather's Review:

Kate Hawthorne knows how to write a tease...but she is also good about eventually giving us the HEA we crave (and deserve) after she tortures her characters and readers... and with Until Now, she gives us both the closure and the HEA for Wyatt and Grant, whose journey started ten years before in Not Allowed.

This book gives us glimpses into how the characters have grown and changed in the ten years they were apart and also just how much chemistry remains between them!  If you haven't started the series yet, I highly recommend that you do so immediately!  It's such a beautiful mix of attraction, self discovery told in a steamy, kinky way that only Kate Hawthorne can do...   the Not Ready To Love series is a totally binge worthy set!  

The only loose end now is that Robin has been in the same holding pattern as Grant for 10+ years and now he needs his HEA too... 

Rating: 5 Stars (bonus stars if you give us Robin's HEA)
