~My Four Star Review of Finding Autumn by Beth Michele~A Novella


My name is Autumn Winters.

The truth is, that's the biggest lie I've ever told.

My real name is Olivia Redmund. Autumn Winters is the curtain I hide behind. You see, I write bestselling erotic romance novels. But my life is far from erotic. The only fantasy exists in my head.

The day I met Hunter Grayson, that all changed. A handsome stranger on a train who turned my world upside down, made me think and feel things I never knew were possible. 

But he's hiding, too. 

What happens when I slowly realize that who I truly am is more similar to who I'm pretending to be? I want to be brave enough to tell the world, but the fear is crippling.

Fear of myself. Fear of the unknown. Fear of what others will think.

But life is too short to be afraid.

And I'm so damn tired of hiding.

~My Review~

Four Sexy, Short & Sweet Stars

In Finding Autumn we first meet Olivia, an erotic romance author who catches her fiance cheating on her.  Needless to say she kicks him to the curb and moves on.  She doesn't do liars or cheaters.  On her way to an event she encounters a very handsome, Hunter Grayson.  

He is an irresistible dirty talker and there is no denying the fact that they are sexually attracted to each other.

"Oh sweetheart, I can be patient when I want something badly enough."

I did mention he is a dirty talker right?

"Spread your legs beautiful"

Olivia doesn't tell Hunter her real name (I'm thinking hypocrite, right?) and Hunter isn't exactly 100% truthful with her either (Why?).    I wanted to know why and after reading their story I understood both of their reasons for this .  It made sense but I can't tell you a whole lot more without giving things away.  

Besides the fact that the sexual chemistry is off the charts and both of them experience some things neither one of them have before, it is clear that they actually like one another and Hunter is also a sweetheart.  (The Epilogue was great!)

"Jesus, I can't be near you without touching you, without wanting you." 

I really enjoyed this quick read and I recommend you check it out.  It is definitely hot and the first sexual encounter between Olivia & Hunter happens rather early on in the book.  But, I was intrigued by them and as I continued reading their story I found that it was also funny and I think you will enjoy the secondary characters, Vanessa, Olivia's best friend and Rex, Hunter's brother, too.
