Gareth Black is drawn to December Mayson the moment he spots her across the room at her cousin’s wedding. When he approaches the beautiful woman, she captivates him with her shyness and wit, making him crave her.
With a pull so strong it’s impossible to ignore, December knows there’s something between her and Gareth. She just hopes they’re capable of jumping the hurdles ahead of them.
Two boys, an ex, a surprise that will change everything, and a disgruntled co-worker, guarantee these two will have their work cut out for them if they are going to find their happily ever after.
Run or jump?
Even though this question didn’t replace the BOOM, it definitely goes with it because it was clear that December Mayson and Gareth Black were drawn to each other from the very moment they saw one another, but there were extenuating circumstances to their instant attraction and after some childish reactions and actions, it didn’t look like the BOOM was going to matter if they didn’t get their shit together and understand what was standing right in front of them.
But Ember and Gareth work things out and they both decide to jump, but now the next question is how far?!?!
December is probably the Mayson who I most relate to…she’s quiet, a bookworm, would rather hang back in the shadows, quirky – as much as she stays in her shell, but what’s also within her is the idea that the right guy could make this good girl a little or a lot bad in all the best ways. But it’s the maternal and loving side of December that really shines through in her and Gareth’s story. She provides Gareth’s two boys the stability and normalcy that they’ve never had because their mother is an absentee one. She shows both Max and Mitchell the love they deserve and she follows through for them, which is something they desperately craved.
Gareth is one hell of a father and man, and despite the baggage he carries and the many jobs he has, he makes sure his boys know how much he loves them and shows them how much better they make his life. He’s honest and open with them, and he tells it like it is in difficult situations, especially when it comes to his boys’ mother. It’s clear just how much these three guys needed December in their lives, and the fact that it works rather smoothly despite the bumpy start they had speaks volumes about the type of people December and Gareth are.
The Mayson clan is back in all its loud, overprotective, and devoted glory in Until December, and because I’m not new to this family, I’ve seen how tenacious, family-oriented, loving and protective each member is; they understand what’s important and they fight for it at all costs, even if that means putting themselves in uncomfortable or dangerous situations, which is exactly what Gareth is willing to do for his boys and for Ember.
I’ll never stop wanting to go back to Aurora Rose Reynolds’ #BOOM world because each and every story mixes the sweet with the sexy and develops from the onset of the BOOM to the happily ever after each couple ends up with after they figure out just how good they could be together.
