The book follows Talon Mayson, a strong and protective CEO who falls in love with Asia Jenson, a feisty and independent woman. The two characters have a history that ties them together, and as they navigate through their feelings, they are forced to confront their past and present struggles in order to be together.
The setting of the novel takes place in the present day, and although there are no historical or cultural significances to the book, Reynolds does touch on current events and issues.

Reynolds also does an exceptional job of addressing mental health issues, such as PTSD, and incorporates it into the story in a thoughtful and meaningful way.

The romance between Talon and Asia is sweet and steamy, and Reynolds’ portrayal of the supporting characters is well-rounded, giving the reader subtle hints of what might be coming next in the series.
However, there are few limitations to the book, including a lack of originality in terms of tropes and plot, as well as some inconsistencies in character development. While Reynolds does incorporate some unique elements into the story, Until Talon still follows a familiar formula within the romance genre.
Overall, Until Talon is a solid addition to the Until Him/Her series and is sure to delight romance readers looking for a steamy and engaging read. The realistic portrayal of mental health issues and the well-developed characters are standout features of the book, and Reynolds’ storytelling ability is nothing short of masterful.
