Landon Stone has it all. Successful career, beautiful devoted wife, financial security.... Until one incident causes a ripple effect and everything is gone. In an instant. Just like that. So what does he do? He heads home to lay low at his parents house for a while, until he can figure out his next course of action.
I really felt for Landon. He was a nice guy. He didn't mess around, he was devoted to his wife (his childhood sweetheart), and very trusting. I was so angry for him when everything started to unravel, I wanted him to rise above it and move forward, and to find the happiness he deserved. So when he met Autumn I was rooting for the pair of them!
Autumn had a pretty hard time in school. She didn't fit in with the 'popular' kids and was the target of cruel bullying. As a consequence she has confidence issues but is blossoming into a beautiful woman. She works for Landon's mother in the local bakery. She knows Landon, she remembers him from school. I mean, who wouldn't? He was the star football player, local boy done good. Everyone knows Landon. He doesn't remember her though. When he first sets eyes on her, he is intrigued and determined to get to know her.
The story is told from both points of view, so its easy to know what each of them is thinking, and I could understand Autumn's hesitation after reading about what she went through at school. She was wary of Landon, of his motives. In her mind she's still the girl from school all those years ago. She's very insecure and guards her heart very carefully. It's clear that there is a connection between the two of them though. Landon is attracted to her physically, but also as he gets to know her, he loves her down to earth attitude. She isn't interested in material things, she likes the simple things in life. And for Autumn, Landon makes her feel wanted, sexy, appreciated, protected.... what woman wouldn't fall for that!
I did get frustrated with some misunderstandings between the two of them. Autumn was too quick to believe other people rather than listen to Landon, and there were parts where time had passed with little information about what had been happening in between. but that didn't stop me enjoying the story. There are some pretty steamy scenes between these two, lets just say that Landon knows his way around the bakery ;)
I really enjoyed reading this story, I loved Landon and Autumn. I swooned, I laughed, I cried, and I wanted to cut a bitch more than once! And the epilogue was just perfect.
Landon was at the top of his football career until fate stepped in and wiped everything he thought he had right from under his feet. He returns to his home town to live back with his parents and it’s here he meets Autumn but not for the first time as he is astounded to find out.
Autumn works at Landon’s Mom’s bakery and knows all about the famous Landon returning home. It is with some trepidation she meets him face to face for the first time in over a decade. They used to go to the same high school but Landon does not recognise her and Autumn doesn’t want him to, otherwise it will reveal who she used to be and a time she will never get over from the traumatising period in her young life.
However the past is revealed and with surprise on both sides they resolve any misgivings each have and a relationship develops much to Autumn’s shock. She still holds the insecurities from the past that will not let go of her and that continue to impede her present and future. She cannot believe that the gorgeous and handsome football star would ever look at her, let alone want to date her.
I really loved both characters and I believe a lot of women will recognise a part of themselves in Autumn. I did feel for her but at times I felt she was a little too over the top in her relapsing into her past self. I totally got she went through an horrendous school life subject of bullying but this was someone who had then gone on to develop a career and transform herself. Surely the insecurities would not still be so deep after all these years? But for the most part she was a strong person but at times she punished herself by blocking others out of her life.
Landon was a real sweetheart but he really must have gone around with blinkers on whilst he was at school and further on in his marriage. But anyhow I was glad to see he finally finds out about Valerie and what she did in the past.
The romance was lovely once it was on but there were a fair few times where it was interrupted, mainly by Autumn’s insecurities. But what is a good romance without some angst thrown in? The relationship was sweet and with some steam thrown in but not overtly so. If you don’t like your romances with a lot of erotic scenes then this is definitely one for you.
I like my storylines where good overturns the bad and this was true in this case. Who doesn’t like to see the jealous bullies, bigots and biatches get their comeuppance? I felt like cheering as we came up to the final chapter.
This was a great sports romance, with plenty of romance, a touch of angst and a beautiful HEA to grasp at the end. Four stars.
This is a sweet romance with some beautifully thought out and written characters, certainly a book to read and keep for those days when you need a bit of a boost from the nasty words and actions of the world outside so you can be swept away with the honesty and special relationship expressed in this book. I know I will be re-reading this book again and again as it has all the perfect elements needed - it made me laugh, cry, get mad and cheer all in the space of a few pages. I loved the way the book ended as I am often frustrated when an author leaves characters in limbo and readers begging for more with no real chance of an author following through with another book. This is a stand alone with a HEA and one I am very happy with.
