Not all heroes are good guys.
With a body count on his soul and blood on his hands, Killian Nox lived in the gray. Ruthlessly single-minded, if he wanted something, it was his. And when it came to the gorgeous lass with a fiery attitude, he didn’t just want her.
He needed her.
With southern-bred manners and a snark all her own, Augusta ‘Gus’ Allan was a connoisseur of cheap wine, delicious Mexican food, and good TV. Unfortunately, her taste in men wasn’t as well-developed. When her knight in shining armor turned out to be a douche in tinfoil, Gus never expected her real hero to be a sexy-accented, tattooed beast of a man.
But he was exactly who she needed.
Gus had no clue how comforting a monster in the dark could be...

This Happily Ever Alpha Kindle World novella is a crossover of The Hyde Series and Aurora Rose Reynolds' Until Series. It features glimpses of familiar faces from Hyde and Seek, Best Kase Scenario, and Until November. However, it can be enjoyed as a standalone.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Yes, just… yes.
Until Nox is a funny, sexy, fantastic story and everyone should read it.
Augusta aka Gus is in a pickle. Her new living arrangements just fell through and salvation comes from the most unlikely source: the bearded and hot giant across the hall from her almost apartment. Unable to resist and really with not much choice, she accepts Nox’s (the bearded giant) invitation of house and pet sitting while he’s away for work. Gus and Nox’s attraction is instantaneous and powerful, but with little time spent together, there’s not much either can do about it.
There is all kind of things going on, and I don’t want to ruin the surprises for anyone, so there’s not much else I’ll say… other than I fookin’ loved this book.
Gus was hilarious, sassy, sweet and just plain awesome. I loved how she was aware of her faults and didn’t try to come off as perfect, neither did she expect everyone else to be.
“His touch was innocent. A light graze as he passed to grab something or another. But that didn’t mean my lust-fueled mind didn’t do its thing. It bent. It twisted. It turned innocuous touches into strip teases followed by Cirque du Soleil level kinkiness. I was a dirty perv and should be ashamed of myself.”
Nox was the picture next to the definition of sexy beast. Ginormous, alpha, bossy and with questionable morals. He took one look at Gus and knew she was it for him. And he didn’t really dawdle going about it. Did I mention the accent? Not only was he super sweet in his alpha way, he was half Scottish and half Irish elevating his hotness level by a gazillion thousand points. And also, he had Nolan. And Nolan was the shit. Best pet ever.
“Seeing Jake with his wife was a reminder of what I wanted. It was proof that a sweet lass could love a rough lad, fook the differences.”
Everything in Until Nox worked for me. I loved revisiting old friends, and the touch of the Mayson’s presence. Nox and Gus’ relationship was fresh, hot and hilarious and I was captured from the very beginning until the very fantastic epilogue. Ms. Frost just keeps getting better and better and I can’t wait to see what she does next.
