Once I got reading this book I couldn’t put it down. I read it in one day!
It centres around the life of Autumn Chamberlain and kicks off just as she’s leaving home and everything she’s ever known behind.

The only thing Auty will not allow herself is to love and be loved.
Enter Zed Madisson, the gorgeous, player, surfer boy who Autumn can’t help but feel an instant attraction too, no matter how hard she tries.
But with secrets in both their pasts will either of them be able to lay the past to rest and find happiness together?
You’ll have to read it to find out!
I really like Autumn’s character she was perfect in her imperfections. she’d completely rebuilt her life yet she still thought she was a weak person. That couldn’t be farther from the truth, she was really strong!
I also loved Reids character (Zeds best friend) he added loads of humour to the story and I can’t wait to read his! 🙂
This was a really sweet read, I’d definitely recommend it to anyone.
Her pupils were like shiny black rocks buried within the bluest of oceans. Her newly acquired, goddamn flirty smile was fucking awesome. The curve of her lips brought a desire to my dick that was well overdue. I liked this girl, a lot. But again she’d left me, leaving me with only the smell of her tantalising skin. Jesus, what was this girl doing to me? To see her dance, her body react in the way it was doing right now, filled me full of need. I wanted to pull her to me and shield my arms around her.
When I saw that prick in a suit stroll up to her five minutes ago, I almost ran across the bar. Her face was twisted up in fear, whatever he had said, wasn’t what she wanted to hear. The fact that I hadn’t received that look meant I was going to keep looking at this girl like she was my beginning.
What others are saying
Wow, what can I say about this book except that it captivated me from start to finish. This début is not only beautifully written but it held a real sense of compassion as the characters were well nurtured and gradually came to life before my very eyes. ~ Perusing Princesses Blog
A story that will captivate your heart. The emotions are real. The characters will have you falling in love with them. The story that lies behind this cover will have you glued right where you are sitting when you start reading this book ~ Goodreads Review
I loved Autumns Rise, and reading it I would never have guessed that this is a debut. The writing is superb and I was totally sucked into the story. I just wanted to give both Autumn and Zed a huge hug. It’s a heartbreaking story but also a story of hope. ~ Goodreads Review
