Si Klare Montefalco ay ipinanganak sa isang kilala at marangyang pamilya. Everything is perfect. Mahal siya ng pamilya niya at mahal din niya ang mga ito. Her life is simple. No drama, no sweat, no nonsense. Nang tumibok ang puso niya, doon niya napagtanto na ang bawat pader na inakala niya’y matibay ay natitibag din. Na lahat ng pinakaiingatan niya ay maaring mawala sa kanya. Dahil may mga pag ibig na kahit anong gawing iwas mo ay lagi kang tinatamaan. Iyong pag ibig na umiilag ka na, bull’s eye ka pa rin. Iyong tipong sinarado mo na ang pinto mo, pilit paring kumakatok. But Klare’s fierce, she wouldn’t let that happen. No. She will risk her heart just to protect her comfort zone, her home, her everything.

Ngunit sa pagkawala ng pag ibig niya, doon lang din ba niya mapagtatanto kung ano ang nawala sa kanya? That she had lost everything when she let him go? Is she ready to fight for it now? Now that he’s gone?

Review

I’ve been looking for “something” in the past few days and I don’t really have any idea what it is. (if you know what I mean?) It seems like I’ve been acting like a “walking dead” for a while now and I’ve been reading books based on my schedule which is quite suffocating sometimes. So when I was browsing my mobile phone, I stumbled to wattpad. And pooof!

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a story from my favorite wattpad author, Jonaxx, so I was really really excited. And well, my excitement didn’t betray me at all. Until He Was Gone is undeniably one of my long list of favorites from hers.

Until He Was Gone is the first installment of the Until Trilogy which actually revolves around Klare Montefalco, who belongs to a wealthy and well-known family in their town. She fell in love, but then, it’s forbidden. She loves him, and he loves her so dang much. (*insert my deafening squeal here)

When I started reading this story, the first thing I noticed was the amazeball closeness and protectiveness of the Montefalco cousins to each other. And the very first name/character that really caught my attention was Elijah! (*insert another deafening squeal here) Right there and then, I’ve been secretly eyeing him, haha (You can’t blame me, he has the same name with my vampire crush fromย The Originals TV series, haha)

I’ve been planning to write this review without mentioning Klare’s partner here for I want you guys to also feel clueless on the reason behind Klare’s forbidden love, but dang! I can’t go on without mentioning “his” name in here, so I want to apologize for the spoiler below. You will still like the story I’m sure, hehe (*wink)

Run Klare. Coz I’m done running. I can’t run anymore. And God knows I can’t even walk away..

Right there and then, it confirmed my guess that Elijah’s in love with his cousin, Klare. In normal circumstances, I would have hated it. But dang! I can’t. I just can’t! It seems that it is right. I’ve been thinking a lot of possibilities on what will happen next. But jonaxx being jonaxx, proved my predictions were false. So yeah, it’s confirmed, I am not a seer haha. This story is really unpredictable and the transition from Klare’s admiration with Eion to falling in love with his cousin Elijah has a very strong claim. I mean, you can’t really question that part. It just happened.

From the start, I really thought that it’s going to be Klare and Eion’s story, but Jonaxx proved again her prowess in writing unpredictable stories. You can’t blame me for thinking that Klare’s going to end up with Eion because of their sweetness and I just love the start of their story. The guy is a bit of a snob and “masungit” so I really thought at first that they are perfect for each other (I’m a sucker for that kind of romance, you know haha). But dang! They always say that girls are complicated, but what would you call Eion then? Haaay! Eion, di na kita ma-espeling, katulad ng pangalan mong di ko rin alam kung bakit tunog babae, haha. Sorry, I was being sarcastic there.

Elijah’s love for Klare is really really really amazing. I can’t count how many times I cry because of that. You’re so lucky Klare. But knowing that they are cousins, I can’t really say Klare’s that lucky. So yeah, she has to give up Elijah for the sake of her family’s reputation. It even tainted her closeness with her cousins.

If you can see me now guys while writing this, you will really think I’m crazy. Everytime I think about that scene, when Klare told Elijah to leave..huhuhu..that was really heart breaking.

Now tell me, who wouldn’t cry on those lines? Huhu Elijah, ako na lang please. (*insert Tasha’s (fromย One More Chance tagalog movie) crying face here haha)

As expected of Jonaxx, this story is really unpredictable. All scenes and conflicts hold up. The guys characters didn’t sounded gay to me, and it’s so easy to picture them all out because of her very understandable descriptions, which was brief and concise. And the plot? really exceptional!

This is really the first time that I was so affected with the book that I have ever read. I mean, I’m done reading this book so I should be peaceful eh? But no! That was far from the truth. While I was working or simply not doing anything, I found it so hard to focus. The scene between Klare telling Elijah to leave keeps circling in my mind. And God knows how many times I control myself not to grab my mobile phone and read its second book. But no! I need to practice my self-control this time. Haha, I’m going on my (long anticipated) short vacation the next day and I don’t want to spend it by staying in my room and reading the book. (I only have this one chance to have a vacation after exhausting myself from work, so I really need to take advantage of it hehe)

I have one warning though. If you start reading this book tonight, you shall receive no sleep. Enjoy reading!

    I hope i wasn’t spoiled before reading this but nah, my sister told me things and spoiled the “surprise” but that didn’t stopped me from reading either! Until Trilogy is actually my favorite series of Jonaxx. Aside from “no sex” and all of that (blush), i find it really painful and cry worthy. Jonaxx gave me the same insanity, feels of pain and hurt, and happiness at the same time. Elijah and his word “Baby” gave me the chills and goosebumps gosh. I’m liking a fictional character is this even normal? And not only with one, but all of jonaxx’s boys! HAHA.

      Hehe, even if we’re not spoiled, I’m pretty sure we’re still able to enjoy this one, well, actually, all of Jonaxx’s stories.

      And yes, I have to agree with you. This one is probably one of the best series she’s written so far not because there’s no SPG scenes (I do love her SPG scenes, haha) but because of the emotion this one contains. I LOVE all Jonaxx’s stories but if you haven’t pointed it out, I wouldn’t really thought about it. I mean, ofcourse I know this series has all the feels, but I’m bias when it comes to Jonaxx. I always think that ALL her stories are the best so the idea of picking out just 1 favorite didn’t really crossed my mind, until now. So yep, I guess I’ll have to make “gaya-gaya” and pick this series as my favorite too, hihi.

      And ofcourse, the heroes. My! This time, I can’t pick just one because ALL of them are my favorites. It’s really hard to pick just one because they’re hot AF. I still can’t figure out how Jonaxx creates such an irresistible and hot hot hot heroes.

        Actually, to minimize my addiction, i’ve started reading her ongoing story “Sands of Time”, but hell, waiting for the update made me re-read her other stories! HAHA. Gosh. This is insane. And now i have a virtual friend because of her. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

          Actually, I’ve been avoiding her stories for quite a while now because I can’t seem concentrate. You see, I’m so affected by her stories that even if how many days or even months I’ve read them, I’m still thinking about the story and especially the sexy hero haha. I’m still wondering now how Jonaxx could do such thing.
          It’s really nice to talk someone who loves the same author (in this case, authorS) and fangirl together hihi
