Until Harmony - Aurora Rose Reynolds
Until Harmony is the story of Nico and Sophie's daughter, Harmony. She has just finished her degree in nursing and moves back home to be closer to her family (the infamous Maysons!). You really don't have to have read the parents' books or even the other books in the Until Her series to enjoy this. They all stand alone perfectly fine.
Like all books in the Until series, this is a story of true love and insta-love, aka 'the boom'. Harmony is a planner. She has a plan for everything in her life and deviating from that plan is not acceptable. This made Harmony really relatable to me. I understood that! She liked knowing and having a plan means having control and knowing. There is comfort in that for lots of us (especially those of us with anxiety disorders and/or OCD...just saying!). Harlen likes Harmony instantly, but recognizes the fear in her over the idea of deviating from her plans. So, he plays it smart and becomes her friend. It was sweet and endearing and made their relationship even more solid.
The story is very low angst so don't expect a lot of danger and climatic moments. Its a sweet, sexy love story that I devoured in one sitting. There is a bit of drama/danger at the end but its minimal and quick. If you want a story that focuses on the couple and love without the drama and angst, Until Harmony is a wonderful pick for a weekend read.
Note: I can't NOT mention this. At the hospital, there is a "Dr. Hofsteder" and a nurse named "Amy Sheldon". Seriously!! If you are even 1/2 the Big Bang Theory fan I am, you get this! I was scouring the book looking for other possible names. I didn't find Penny, Bernadette, or Howard. Oh well! I'm not sure if the nod to TBBT was intentional, but I have to think it is. Its too much to be coincidental, right?
