{Book Review} Until Kelly by Vera Quinn

  • Title: Until Kelly
  • Author: Vera Quinn
  • Publisher: Boom Factory Publishing
  • Publication Date: August 6, 2021




 I know I am safe now.

I wanted a fresh start, beware of what you wish for.

I have regrets but things became complicated.

What did Kelly do, I ran?

No one can run forever.

In Comfort, Texas I met the man who makes me forget my past but how long can I keep up with the lies. How long before my past catches up to me and destroys us all?


 How much do you really need to know about someone before you fall in love with them?

Can there really be love at first sight?

I didn’t believe in it and I didn’t believe in love at all.

 Until Kelly is part of Aurora Rose Reynolds’s Happily Ever Alpha World.  If you loved Until Sage, then you will want to read Until Kelly.

Hi! Welcome to my blog where I write book reviews and random mental health articles. Today we welcome Until Kelly by Vera Quinn to the blog.

When I sat down to read this book, I had no idea what to expect as this is the first time I have read anything by the author. What I found was clear, focused writing. The characters were vibrant and authentic, each blending into their roles. Kelly, the main character, was a flawed heroine working hard to change her life.

Trask came on strong with a thick southern accent. He was known to many as a womanizing, playboy. I found the sudden change in Trask’s character from a male who had never been in a relationship to a taken, committed man willing to do anything for a girl he just met at the local diner, a bit shocking. It was insta-love at its best.

I have to admit that this is not only a romance but a tinge of a mystery also. With any mystery, it is difficult for me to not guess how things will play out. There were so many ways it could come together and I guessed it wrong every single time. This was pleasantly surprising.

The only thing that disappointed me was the lack of showing and the abundance telling. The story remained intriguing from beginning to end.

If you like strong female leads and sweet talking southern men you will enjoy Until Kelly. I give this book a strong 4 stars. The book is AVAILABLE NOW!

I have been an avid reader since I was taught to read. I was the oldest of six children and reading was a getaway for me.
When my sister became sick she encouraged me to write my first book. That was in 2015 and I released my first book in March 2016.
I love to read, write and share books.
​I am a wife, a mom, and a grandma, so the only problem I have is finding the time to get it done. I have been married to my husband for 23 years and he is my person and strongest supporter.

Limey Bastard by Skye Callahan – Release Blitz

Title: Limey Bastard
A Cocky Hero Club Novel
Author: Skye Callahan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 18, 2021

Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward are excited to bring you the Cocky Hero Club: original works from various authors inspired by Keeland and Ward’s New York Times bestselling Cocky Bastard series.


One year of post-doctorate research separates me from the career that will get me the heck out of Rhode Island and away from my obtrusive parents.

I expected Dr. Greyson Bedford, a sexy British professor from Oxford University, to upend life on campus, but I didn’t expect him to do the same with my heart.

Despite his persistence, I keep to myself, but when a migraine strikes at work and I have no one else to turn to, he gives me something unexpected: a connection I haven’t felt in years. His touch opens a conduit to my past and the accident that almost robbed me of my dreams.

I swore I’d never let anything get in my way again, especially a brash heartthrob who will return to England at the end of the school year.

I had a plan. Not the best laid plan, but one semester with him changes everything.

Limey Bastard is a standalone story inspired by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward’s British Bedmate with appearances from Simon, Bridget, and family.
