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 ::
I’ve got two word for this book: Brutally beautiful.
Now, I know that sounds strange, and you’d be correct. But that is how I felt after finishing Autumn and Hank’s story. It’s not sugary sweet, or warm and fuzzy. It’s deep and honest, raw and absolutely cynical at times. And that is what makes it beautiful.
There’s such an awakening in Autumn in this book. You see her try to deal with her very real, very valid fears while coping with the death of her best friend. She want’s nothing more than to let Hank in, to let him love her, but she doesn’t know how.
Hank also grows in this book. He’s tired of being stared at and called names. He wants to be someones future. He wants Autumn to let him in, but he needs to learn to deal with his own demons too. The two of them are like oil and water, but they work together.
This is another stunning story by Seth that makes you think, and feel, and you not only love him for it, you kind of hate him too. It’s not often that an author comes along and forces you to look into your own soul, but Seth does that.
I loved this book. You must read The Summer Remains before you can read Autumn Rising, of you won’t understand the depth of the emotions. Both books are highly recommended!

::: 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 ::
THE THRILLING, EXPLOSIVE, AND PROVOCATIVE DEBUT FROM NEW ADULT ROMANCE AUTHOR SETH KING
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.

::: 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.
