~Book Review~ “Until Arsen” by K.L. Donn


My Review:

Kindergarten teacher Marina Park’s had her dream life all planned out, but an accident crushed her chances at having the things she wanted most out of  life. And, now that she sees herself as damaged and defective, she’s also given up on ever falling in love.

All Arsen Daniels wants is to find the one woman who will love him unconditionally now that he has seen his friends find their soul mates.  With his job as a detective, however, with long and unpredictable hours, he doubts he’ll ever find someone that can put up with both his job and his intensity.  

Fate (and their friends( have plans for Marina and Arsen, however.  When both are cajoled into attending a kick-off to summer party by mutual friends, they feel an  immediate attraction to each other. So much so that they are both willing to take a chance to see if it can be more.   While Arsen knows for sure that Marina is it for him, she has her doubts that he will truly want her once he learns her secret.  When the truth comes out, will it break them apart forever or will Arsen find a way to make Marina feel as whole as she makes him feel?

Until Arsen was an intense whirlwind of a romance.  While there was a bit of insta-love, it really felt genuine as the couple needed to work through their own insecurities as well as their feelings for one another.  

Marina is truly a sweetheart of a person.  She is sweet and genuine and truly cares about those around her, especially her students.  She’s also very insecure since her accident and is still trying to cope with the damage it caused her both physically and emotionally.  Arsen, who is all alpha, was a perfect match for her as she thrived with his dominant personality. And, while he is extremely dominant, it’s done in a very caring way as he is also a pro at reading Marina’s cues and emotions and works hard at making her feel comfortable and loved.

What I loved about this romance is that it didn’t come easy to this couple.  There is conflict and hurt that occurs, and, in my opinion, it made the romance feel even more real and wonderful because it felt genuine.  Until Arsen was really a fabulous read with enough depth and intensity to make the reader feel invested in watching this couple make their way to a beautiful and well deserved happy ever after!  5 stars!




Love is a novel creature.
Mysterious, heart pounding, like smoke on the wind.
We find it, only to lose it.
Until Arsen Daniels…
Marina Parks didn’t think she’d ever have it.
