Blog Tour: Autumn Rising By Seth King

Autumn Rising Blog Tour
Title: Autumn Rising
Author: Seth King
Autumn Mahal and Hank Basara know they should stay away from each other. Both recovering from the loss of a mutual friend, and each bearing scars of their own, they know their love would look like a worn cliché, a trite romance novel for teens, some crappy made-for-TV movie languishing on your great aunt’s DVR. But as summer gives way to September and flirtation leads to something deeper, they learn there are some types of love you cannot run from, no matter how hard you try to flee.
Hilarious, heartbreaking and hopeful, Autumn Rising is a novella about the happiness we ruin for ourselves, the truths we can’t hide with a filter, and that elusive and victorious moment when we let love rush in and carry us to the sky. In a world of constant TMI, prepare to feel a story worth sharing – a story that will stay with you long after the summer fades to autumn.

:: REVIEW ::
Autumn Rising by Seth King is a beautiful and brilliant story.  A story that at 114 pages delivers so much emotion that you're left with not only a book hangover, but going back to read your favorite passages over and over again. Autumn Rising is a companion story to Seth King's stunning, The Summer Remains.  It's tells the story of Autumn and Hank, two characters that we met in the Summer Remains. In Autumn Rising they are two people dealing with the loss of their friend and also their own personal scars. In the midst of all that they find love and as you watch it bloom, you fall in love too as you are transported into this story. Autumn is a complex character who is funny, cynical, loud, a little infuriating, smart, witty, and loveable. Hank, is a quiet, intense, young man but when he talks you listen. Half the things he says has you falling for him as much as Autumn. While they seem like opposites, as you read the story, you'll see that's not the case.

Autumn Rising is a gorgeous love story that will have you laughing, getting upset, falling in love, swooning, and so much more. Autumn and Hank are characters that you will love and root for. While you see this love that grows between them could be the best thing, you also see doubt and what happens when  that doubt has the power to ruin love and happiness. Will Autumn and Hank be able to overcome their obstacles and embrace love? You need to pick up Autumn Rising to find out.

There are not enough words to say how much I loved Autumn Rising. Seth King is a phenomenal writer. His words are like paint on a canvas, creating a stunning piece of work that makes you feel so much. As you read each page you are blown away by the breathtaking story he created. He does this so effortlessly in Autumn Rising. What I love about not only Autumn Rising but his other book, The Summer Remains is that he makes you think. You think about love and life. Embracing the beauty in it all. I savored every single page of Autumn Rising. When it ended, I wanted more. It is a book that you need to move to the top of your TBR and read today. Not surprisingly one of my favorite quotes in  Autumn Rising sums up perfectly how I feel about this book, so I'll leave you with it.

"The book that was so good it made you set aside a weekend to just get lost in it; the book that jumped out at you and simply made you want to live a better life and be a better human; the book that landed uncomfortably close to a basic human truth you didn’t want to admit to yourself and made you sputter and re-read an entire paragraph. The one that made you say, “Yes, this is a thing that is true, a thing that has never been said before, not like this.” Books were friends. Books were there for you. Books were love, forever."

Rating: 5-stars (even though I want to give more)

::: Synopsis :::
The Summer Remains
Publication Date: February 14, 2015
*This is a full-length standalone romance*
Twenty-four-year-old Summer Johnson knows two things. The first is that due to a quickly worsening medical condition, she faces a risky surgery in three months’ time that may or may not end in her death. The second is that she would like to fall in love before then.
As spring sinks into her namesake season on the Florida coastline, Summer plays the odds and downloads a new dating app - and after one intriguing message from a beautiful surfer named Cooper Nichols, it becomes clear that the story of what may be her last few months under the sun is about to be completely revised. All she has to do now is write something worth reading.
Tender, honest, devastating and triumphant, The Summer Remains explores a very human battle being waged in a very digital age: the search for a love that will outlast this temporary borrowing of bones. In an era when many feel compelled to share and re-share anything about everything, prepare to feel a love so special, you will want to hug it close and make it yours forever.

The Goode Fight
Publication Date: October 12, 2014
:: Synopsis ::
In a stage of life when everything seems daunting, the fight to find love can still be the scariest thing of all – but in college senior Taylor Haney’s case, it may have just become downright deadly.
I’m bad – but I don’t want to be bad anymore.
In fact, leaving my Nashville life behind and swearing off love forever was the only thing keeping me from falling back into my old ways and fucking up again, and I was doing pretty well at pretending to be good – until I met Taylor Haney, that is.
Now I can think of nothing but Taylor. Her shy smile…the way she fidgets with her hands when she gets nervous…the sounds she makes when I tie her to my bedposts and go to town on her…the way I get a glimpse of eternity when I look into her hazel eyes…
And that little lovey feeling is the worst thing of all, because it means I’m breaking all my old rules now – and that means nobody is safe. Especially Taylor.
Because the last girl I fell in love with is currently lying in Brentwood Cemetery.

Mrs. Robinson
Publication Date: November 24, 2014
::: Synopsis :::
How far would you go to save someone you love? And how far would you go to get revenge on a loved one who betrayed you?
Ben Bradley is a twenty-year-old student and aspiring MMA fighter with a dead-end day job and a desperate need for cash to help his disabled sister out of a tight spot. Grace Robinson is a lonely forty-something D.C. housewife who spends her time reading about red rooms of pain while her husband busies himself with the office interns. And with the arrival of a controversial new app called Hookd that matches attractive young men with powerful women willing to pay for their companionship, Ben and Grace soon find incredibly appealing – and risky – solutions to their problems.
With Hookd, Ben can easily make the money to save his beloved sister, while Grace can get back at her cheating husband and spice up her quiet nights with the kind of hot, anonymous sex she only reads about in books. All they have to do now is get over their moral hang-ups and press download…
And then hope Grace’s vindictive husband, Congressman Richard Robinson, stays in the dark once Mrs. Robinson’s affair explodes into something more passionate and erotic than she could have ever imagined.
