New Release + Review: Waiting For Autumn by J.A. DeRouen

Title: Waiting For Autumn
Author: J.A. DeRouen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 25, 2018 


“Race me for it.” 

Four simple words. Five desolate years.

Sebastian Kelly believes he isn’t worthy of redemption, of a chance to right his wrongs. But an unexpected trip home, the place he dreads most, calls in question everything he’s come to believe. And who knows, he may find exactly what he’s been waiting for. 


One broken promise. Two pink lines.

Autumn Norris knew in an instant her life would never be the same. Years have flown by in a flurry of sparkles and dress up, and Autumn has refused to let the anchor of regret pull her under. 

Until she lays eyes on Sebastian, and the wave of why, where, and how could you flood her every thought.

Old hurt and new betrayal twist first love into a reluctant partnership, and theirs may be a bond even pigtails and butterfly kisses can’t mend. But the past five years have felt like a lifetime, and Seb is willing to wait as long as it takes.

Because the truth is, he’s always been waiting for Autumn.

FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt!

Talk about a hit right to the feels. Waiting For Autumn is what dreams are made of for anyone who loves a good second chance. Life long friendship, first and only love, tragedy, and secrets all come together creating this unputdownable book! Autumn and Sebastian’s story had me hooked from the start. Between moments that left me gasping and crying to moments I thought my heart would just burst from how full it was every page pulled me deeper and deeper into their world.

These two are the definition of soulmates, but life deals blows neither of them could have ever seen coming. With tragedy and secrets forcing them apart the love they had never completely went away even if they were apart. I absolutely loved that (and many of things) about Autumn and Sebastian. Even both thinking the other was lost to them, that love never left. When life once again pushes these two together get ready to lose your heart!

My heart broke for Sebastian and everything he went through, but at the same time it made me love him even more. He could have easily become bitter but instead grew into a man that was so easy to love. His determination to get back the woman who’s always owned his heart was at times adorable but mostly insanely sweet.
