Autumn thought she had everything: a gorgeous stud of a boyfriend, a practical if unexciting PA job at Thorne PR, a savvy best friend, and a soon-to-be earned journalism diploma.
But things in her perfectly constructed world shift when Autumn discovers a life shattering secret.
Needing to change her life drastically Autumn meets a mysterious and sexy stranger who could be the solution to her problems.
Autumn is thrown into a luxurious new world. One that is powered by high flyers, fantasies and carnal desires. How will she escape? Or, does this new world hold the key to her own fulfilment?
The Blurb does well to mention enough without giving too much away. I will say that it needs the erotica tag somewhere. It’s no hardcore smut tale, but it’s not a typical chick-lit either so some may be caught off guard.
I found the pace slow at first but it builds to create the situation that kicks off the series of events that highlight Autumn’s downward spiral. Everything in her life is rattled by the decision she makes: her job, her education, home, family, love life. Hell, even her health. She really gave me some face-palm moments.
The sex scenes were smoking, and surprising. There are a few grammatical errors, and the protagonist can be a whining/immature character at parts. Although needed for life’s lessons and development, this kind of character can be a hit or miss with me. These points are why the stars have taken a hit, but it really comes down to personal preference.
I’d read a sequel to this, to see how things develop for Autumn relationship-wise/ work-wise. She couldn’t have become overly sensible overnight, especially if she’s back at the family home where she lost her shit the last time.
This would be a good, light, book to take on holiday with you or read whilst catching some of the summer rays in the garden.
