There are some books which don’t have to have sex scenes for it to be beautiful, to stand out. Until I’m Yours is one of that. If anything, the steam was just an added bonus. But leave the story alone as it was, it would still be perfect. That’s how freaking amazing this book was. This has just set the standards of a must-read book for me.

Mean girl. Goddess. Bitch. Supermodel Sofie Baston has earned those labels… yet they don’t scratch the surface of who she really is. Before she can follow her own dreams, Sophie must do her daughterly duty and reel in a “fish” for her father’s business-a tall, brown-eyed entrepreneur who immediately hooks her. He’s a big guy with an even bigger heart… but will that heart be open to Sofie once her darkest secret is revealed?
…but only one man knows her heart
To Trevor Bishop, Sofie is a beautiful mystery he would gladly spend his life solving. He figures her tough demeanor is armor against a world that’s hurt her too many times. Then Sofie’s deepest wounds are reopened by the powerful, ruthless man who made them. When she musters the courage to take him down, her world shatters. Now Trevor is determined to help Sofie pick up the pieces so they can build a future together. The challenge will be convincing his ice princess that it’s safe to melt in his arms…
Until I’m Yours had surpassed my initial expectation of it being predictable. Because I never thought I would be on that exhilarating ride with Sofie and Trevor and the wonderful writing world of Kennedy Ryan.
Sofie Baston was the name and face everyone knew. Beautiful, poised, elegant, sexy, supermodel, wealthy, envy of all women. One would think she had everything. Only, that’s where they were wrong.
Trevor Bishop was a very intelligent, humble, with a Southern drawl businessman who has always have confidence in his gut about business deals and people to trust. That said, one look at Sofie Baston on a billboard ad in NYC knew the woman was something.
I’ve never expected to love Sofie at first. I mean that in a way that Kennedy portrayed her as a bitchy heroine but I knew Kennedy had something up her sleeve to craft Sofie on that manner. And boy did it turn 180 degree for me! The Sofie that I didn’t like? Was now one of favorite heroines EVER. She’s strong, beautiful, and just a human who made mistakes, paid for them enough and got the sweetest deal out of everything that’s happened in Trevor Bishop’s persona.
My, my, my. Trevor Bishop!!! TREVOR. FREAKING. BISHOP! I love him with every beat of my heart! He is ULTIMATE book boyfriend material! He knew what he wanted but not come off as cocky arrogant bastard that some of our book boyfriends really were. (Right?!) He was definitely confident in the way he knew how and when to do things excellently. What I love most about Bishop was his certainty. Of things. Of his businesses. His life. His love for Sofie. Even after everything that has happened around both of them, their love endured. And what they sowed, they reaped. And Kennedy made sure it was absolutely divine to indulge on!
Until I’m Yours is the book that the more you give so much of your feelings away, the more it returns the favor and a whole lot more than you’ve invested in—tenfold. It tackled an unusual, complicated story about something only really very few authors can write flawlessly and bravery in a seamless passion of beautiful narration and depth, weaved by great characterization of characters, unbridled romance and just right, enough, perfectly-paced sexy times. This book has just moved to my Most Favorite Reads Ever! A five-star rating would fail me because it wasn’t just enough. I need more stars, please!!! And Kennedy Ryan? Now one of my go-to authors! Man, what a freaking genius of a writer!!! I love her so much! And I say this even when this was the first book I’ve ever read of her! And now I am Kennedy Ryan obsessed! Huh, sorry not sorry! She needs to take a vacation in the Philippines so I can bearhug-tight her!
Now excuse me while I put her every book on my wishlist.
