I have two rules in life:
1. No relationships, falling in love or attachments.
2. No sleeping with clients of my interior design firm.
Since the last guy turned out to be married, they’ve been easy to follow.
Callum Huxley is a ridiculously sexy Brit, and the connection we have the moment our eyes lock scares the ever-loving hell out of me. Thank God I came to my senses before going back to his hotel where I would’ve ended up naked, panting, and unable to forget him.
Thinking I walked away from that night unscathed was stupid. Sure enough, at the biggest meeting of my career waits the CEO of Dovetail Enterprises—him. It might be the most embarrassing moment of my professional life. And breaking my no-client rule might just be the hottest moment of my personal life.
Learning to trust has never felt so good, but falling has never hurt so bad.
I’ve been anticipating Nicole’s book since we first started on the journey with Heather in We Own the Night and it was 100% worth the wait. Corinne Michaels totally delivered with this book and, dare I say she’s totally figuring out this romcom thing. Not Until You still has the emotional pull all of Ms. Michaels’ books have, but there were a lot more moments of levity and jest than her normal fare.
I freaking loved Nicole. I loved her in We Own Tonight and One Last Time, and I fell even more in love with her in Not Until You. I have a girl crush on her and wish that I had an iota of her fire and confidence. She is my opposite in almost every way, and I loved that she was unremorsefully herself. Nicole had a spine of steel and a heart of gold, especially regarding her loved ones. She was outspoken, knew what she wanted, and strived for her goals without apology.
Nicole and Callum had fabulous chemistry. They had a fun push and pull, and it lent to them developing a deeper connection than they were expecting in a fun, organic way. Their banter and teasing allowed them to let down the walls they’d both build to protect their hearts without either of them realizing it. Their relationship was sweet and fulfilling, and I was happy to have had the opportunity to take that ride with them.
Not Until You is a standalone novel and can be enjoyed completely on its own. However, two books were published before about characters that appear in this book. We Own Tonight and One Last Time are stories about two of Nicole’s best friends, and there is a fourth book If I Only Knew, that will be about the final friend in their group. Not Until You is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Nicole and Callum.
