Synopsis

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.

Falls Review

This is the first book I have read by Beth Michele and I was very pleased. Going into this book I knew it was a novella so it was going to be short, sweet and to the point. What I did not expect was all of the HOT, STEAMY SEX that was thrown into the mix. This book was fun for me to read because well......my name is Autumn!!!! So I just placed myself into the character role and I sure did have a good time ;) Autumn and Hunter have amazing chemistry and the pages sizzle and smoke as you read them. I was waiting for my iPad to go up in flames as I was reading. My panties may not have caught fire, but they sure did melt right off me. This was a fun read; not a lot of angst and not super fluffy. I think as a novella that's a great balance to keep the reader engaged. Sure, there were times I wanted to shake Autumn, but overall she's like most women I know. Most of the book I wanted to mount Hunter but no man is perfect, even in books! He comes off as sexy and confident but that's because he hides his insecurities well.  They are just two people looking for love in a world that is full of liars and con artists. The heart is a fragile organ so place it in someone's hands with care, cause if it's the wrong hands it may just get crushed. I would highly recommend this book to my fellow readers. It is supposed to be part one in a two part series and I can honestly say I am looking forward to part two. Beth you may owe me some new panties, but it was well worth it! I give Finding Autumn by Beth Michele 4.5 glasses of Pinot because that's the kind of girl I am!!!! I look forward to reading many more well written, steamy books by Beth!!! 







Excerpt
“Shit,” I mumble to myself when I spy the pink vibrator, glaring proof of my non-existent sex life now on public display. “God damn it,” I utter again, shaking my head and scrambling to grab it, when I notice a pair of beautiful, masculine hands scooping up my belongings. Completely mortified, my cheeks flush a deep red, and I’m silently praying he hasn’t spotted my favorite sex toy. My eyes make their way from the ground, climbing past the hands and up the length of strong, muscular arms to an absolutely gorgeous face, and I take a hard swallow. A chiseled jaw with a hint of stubble, irises the color of aged brandy, a sharp, sculptured nose, and perfectly tousled hair that matches his hypnotic eyes. I don’t realize that I’m staring until his lips quirk up into a grin.

Could I be any more obvious?

He tosses the items back in my purse and nods toward the vibrator. “I’ll let you handle that one,” he offers, his voice a rich timbre to my ears. “Although,” he whispers, leaning in close, “I’m sure I could put it to good use.” My mouth drops open in surprise, just as he reaches his thumb out to skim my bottom lip. “I’m pretty sure I could put this sexy mouth to good use, too.”
