about


When newly single Kate Adams is approached on the sunny deck of a California hotel by hockey star David Burke, and he invites her to dinner, she almost says no. He’s obviously younger than her. And charming. And drop dead gorgeous. But there’s also something about David that makes Kate–who hasn’t done anything spontaneous in a very long time—accepts his invitation. It is, after all, her fortieth birthday.
However, a real romance with thirty-year-old David, whose picture is in the gossip pages as often as it’s in the sports pages, is out of the question. No matter how much she wants him, it’s just too risky. But meeting Kate has been David’s lightning strike. She’s the one for him, and he has no intention of giving up on her.

So while Kate guards her fragile heart, David sets out to win her over with the same determination that drives him on the ice. And he’ll break every rule in the book if he has to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Until You by Jeannie Moon Wow! Incredible. Amazing. Captivating. None of these words express how fabulous UNTIL YOU really is. It may just be the Best Book I've Read This Year and there's been some tough competition. I've had this book on my Kindle since March and let it get buried in my TBR pile. Big. Mistake. Verbally kicking myself right from the first chapters. I have read every one of Jeannie Moon's books and enjoyed them all, but UNTIL YOU... Kate and David's story? IMHO it tops them all. To me, UNTIL YOU was a quietly romantic story of two soulmates who, despite their vast differences, find a connection and a love that is clearly meant to be. But it isn't easy for them. Mistakes were made. Misunderstanding, insecurities and people interfered. But Kate and David's characters are written with depth, realism, emotion, wit, humor, complexity, and flair. I felt their attraction, their fears, their happiness, their frustrations, their love, their joy, their sorrow, and lastly their confidence in knowing they would have the rest of their lives together. But, UNTIL YOU is far more than the great romance between David and Kate, there is so much more to their stories. Especially Kate's. Her struggles are especially heartfelt and touching. Jeannie Moon has intricately developed her lead characters and even the secondary characters so well I couldn't help but be captivated. The personalities and their reactions seemed so natural and real, given who they were, from the leads to the villains, because the backstory was there and yet the story still felt fresh. Still kept me engaged as I rooted for everything to work for them to have their happiness together. I hated to put it down and couldn't wait to get back to it. Couldn't wait to share how moved I am. (It's 3:00 in the morning. I have to be up at 7:00.) I'm not giving any spoilers. Read it yourself. Don't wait. Treat yourself. Do it today! 5 stars ~Complimentary copy downloaded from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from realistic issues and an emotional storyline After her divorce, Kate is a little insecure but thanks to David she finds herself again. Once she discovers who she is at her core, she’s surprisingly settled for her past – strong and confident. But she has to let that past go and remember how great she really is. And that she can hold the interest of a younger, super-hot pro-athlete. David grows up a lot too. He starts to realize the man that he didn’t even know he wanted to be. He just has to convince Kate that he’s ready to commit and that she’s the one for him. David and Kate face a lot of troubles, because of their fears and hang-ups, but it leads to a really great HEA. The characters are fantastic, both the main and secondary, and Moon does a wonderful job of drawing you into their world. And of making you interested in what happens next - I really hope we get Jack’s story. I felt for him almost as much as the main characters. He’s young but a good guy underneath and he got a good kick in the teeth so I have my fingers crossed that we can see him get his own HEA. With realistic issues and an emotional storyline, Until You is definitely one to add to your TBR pile. (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Until You I loved the multi-dimensional, realistic plot of Until You by Jeannie Moon. I wasn't too sure what to expect when I started this, and am so happy to say that Until You mesmerized me! Katie is a strong heroine who has a lot going on in her life. I really liked her, how she dealt with things, and who she was. David might be 10 years younger than her, but once they hit it off that didn't deter him one bit. He didn't see the numbers, he just saw Katie. The woman he wanted to know better and be with. He cares, he stands by her and supports her, and he is persistent enough that I kept hoping eventually Katie would realize he's worth risking her heart again! The connection between Katie and David is one I could feel strongly through out Until You. They also had great chemistry, but I liked how the chemistry was not the only thing they had going for them. I think their feelings were realistic and the doubts and bumps in the road believable. As they work through this and Katie deals with an ex husband and her teenage daughter, the plot really solidified and came together well. I always love a good romance that has a more mature heroine! Numerous facets of life and relationships are explored in Until You, woven in realistically and making things very intriguing! I'd recommend Until You to any romance reader!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FIVE STAR Contemporary Romance-Women's Fiction I've read all of Jeannie Moon's other books and have really enjoyed each one (especially The Wedding Secret and This Christmas!!) I distract easily and have a demanding home life with many interruptions, so I hesitated to take on a story of this length and depth. I was prepared for it being more than a simple escapist romance, in the realm of woman's fiction with romantic elements. But boy am a glad I purchased this read. The opening chapters hooked me. I loved the concept of a woman turning forty attracting the attention of a younger ma, a pro-athlete at that, and enjoying an uninhibited weekend away from her responsibilities. Of course I wanted David and Kate's romance to be "more" but once she returned home I realized the many obstacles that stood in their way. I was compelled to keep reading. I was drawn into Kate's complicated life, the difficult ex-husband, teaching career, and her aloof 17-year-old daughter. Parts of this story tore at my soul, having suffered some similar losses as the heroine, and to be honest, I struggled at one point to keep reading, not wanting to dredge up those awful memories again, but something about Kate and her daughter's personal issues kept me turning those pages. I realize now that reading this book was cathartic at some levels. I have Ms. Moon to thank for that. The story surprised me a few times with its twists, taking the characters down a different path than I'd anticipated, and I was impressed by the way in which the author resolved many of the problems in Kate's life. By the end of the story, I was grinning from ear to ear. Kate went through hell and back to earn her true love, and a wonderful relationship with her daughter as well! This story was realistic and hopeful and sexy all rolled into one. I would definitely love to revisit this family when Laura is an adult and finds her love. Who knows? Maybe she will have a beautiful reunion romance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much More than Romance, Loved it!! I absolutely loved this book. It is a book that you will not be able to put down. Newly divorced, turning forty, Kate is ready to venture out into life again. She meets a younger, but very mature David at a bar. They have a one night stand, but they both want more. This book is just not just another romance, but so much deeper. Kate has a daughter, who is seventeen and is going through many life choices of her own. Her ex husband, whom I dislike (to put it mildly) has emotionally abused Kate through their marriage and still trying to ruin her life. Kate looks at this romance on how it will affect everyone in her life. Jeannie Moon has outdone herself in this book, the pages just kept turning until the end. I sure didn't want it to end. This has been the best book that I have read this year. I highly recommend this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from touching and heartfelt romance This is the story (mostly) of Kate and David. Kate just turned 40, is divorced, fighting for custody of her 17 year old daughter and a one night stand with a 29yr old handsome man while in the Caribbean sounds just about perfect. The only problem - it turns out he lives in the same city she does back in the US and is a famous hockey player to boot. Not wanting to let things end so quickly, they see each other back at home and thus starts the push and pull of their relationship. The age difference between them is the problem on both ends - will they be able to overcome their insecurities and make a real relationship and future together? While this story is ostensibly billed as a contemporary romance, I found there was a lot more going on than just the romance between Kate and David, making it more of a women's fiction story. The story is told in six points of view - Kate, David, Kate's ex Richard, Richard's girlfriend Marie, Kate's daughter Laura and the young man Laura starts dating, Jack. Right there to me is the indication that this is not strictly a romance genre book, though the relationship between Kate and David is the backbone of the story - there are too many voices trying to be heard. In truth I enjoyed the story quite a bit, and I didn't mind all the other voices though they did pull away from the romance. I thought it was a much more realistic take on the older woman-younger man romance - there are complications that can't be glossed over. The ex, the daughter, the reaction of the workplace to the relationship etc. A large part of the story was actually Laura's, the confused 17 year old looking for love, caught between her parents and the lies and truths of their previous relationship. I enjoyed David's character quite a bit - he's a well known playboy in the hockey world, used to the puck bunnies that jump into bed with him eagerly and Kate is the opposite of that. She's sophisticated, smart, successful in her own right as a writer and not at his beck and call. He has to work at maintaining any kind of relationship with her and it doesn't take long for him to realize that it's what he wants for his future. There is definite chemistry between them and the love scenes are sexy and emotional - there just aren't that many of them as once they are stateside the reality of life bogs them down. Kudos to David though for sticking the course and being with Kate through all that ensues - he really made a good hero. Their happy ending was definitely worth it. If the story were just about Kate and David it could have been half the length. But for me, all the extra subplots were interesting too. 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it Loved! Loved! Loved! This is an exquisitely told story of a woman dealing with all the issues faced when trying to rebuild a life. Freshly divorced and facing forty, being alone isn't exactly appealing. When a chance encounter with a much younger man turns into so much more Kate Adam's world is rocked off it's axis. Throw in a controlling abusive ex and a rocky at best relationship with her teenage daughter and it may be more than Kate can handle. I loved the characters in this book and with all that was going on, never once did I feel lost. Great writing kept everything together and moving forward. I highly recommend this one for everyone.
