About the Author

When she’s not chasing rug monkeys or otherwise running around like a madwoman, Autumn likes to look out at the Rocky Mountains that surround her, and daydream. She wouldn’t live anywhere else (except maybe Tahiti, if half naked serving men were included in the deal. Admit it—you’d trade, too). ** Autumn’s always up for a good chat about music, movies, wine, or good books. Or bad books. Or books of any kind (Really. She talks a lot. Almost as much as she reads. Ask her husband). She sucks down java at a scandalous rate to keep her going by day, but in the dead of night you’ll find her hunched over the computer keyboard, writing frantically while alternating between bouts of snickering madly, sniffling aloud, and despairing over her technodorkiness. ** Someday she’ll grow up and put her very grown-up education to use. ** Maybe. ** But not today.

Super cute contemporary romance, set in Davis, CA. College crush turned drunken hook up...can they turn it into something real when they've started in the middle? This story is so reminiscent of those heady days of the mid-twenties, when you are a grown up, and you still haven't started your grown up life, but you are about to. Really sweet story, funny, cute.

Cocktails and Dreams is a well written, modern love story. You follow the lives of Jena and Nicholas as they work through the trials and tribulations of beginning, maintaining and ultimately owning their relationship. Are you tired of reading simple romance stories where it's all hearts and flowers and chocolates with no earthiness or sense of normality? Then this book's for you. There's romance, there's fun, there's sex, there's love; but there's also a "humanness" in these characters that is rarely found in fiction - they make mistakes, they're not perfect and they deal with real issues. This is what makes this book so attractive to me. Sure, everyone likes escapism in literature, but I also like characters to whom I can relate...and this books gives me that, right down to the very last page.

The summary of this book got my attention, Nick & Jena met back in college were very into each other but never did anything about it, New Years Eve rolls around and they hook up, and of course I want to know what happens so I get the book. At first I was excited and I couldn't wait to see what this book was all about and how they would end up back together. But I personally feel the book was a little long and if the story was shorter it would of been better. It dragged on for a bit and I started to get bored but continued reading just because I wanted to know what happened. I think what kept me mostly interested were the characters, Jena and her filter mouth, Nick is hot and funny, Connor well he's Connor and I would love for him to get his own book, and then theres Travis who is also hot and funny! The chemistry between all the characters were great, so I feel like if it was shorter I would of loved the book, but I still recommend people to read it was a nice story overall! :D

I enjoyed the characters in this book but by about the 60% mark it started to drag out a bit and the main female character was starting to become annoying. Up until this point I would have given this a five star rating and it's the only reason I dropped back to four stars.

I did actually purchase the book because it was 400 pages and it's nice to have a decent length book to read but it was a bit unnecessary in this case.

The secondary characters really added to the story. Lots of humor. Still worth reading.

Nicholas was a sophomore in college when he saw & fell in love with a freshman, Jena, on his rowing team. He pursued her throughout the semester, but was never confident enough to really show her how he felt. After having a great night at a party with her, he gets called home for a family emergency and never sees her again. At least not until a few years later on New Years Eve. He spots her from across the bar and immediately decides to go talk to her. Unfortunately, Nicholas had previously had a night full of bar-hopping and rounds of Jaeger before he decided to approach Jena, so what happens after they've reconnect at the bar is a total blur to him. He remembers certain things; the graze a his chin on her stomach, the feel of his hands on her hip, the way she caressed his back with tiny little circles...everything but her face. He spends months dreaming about his "Angel" before an accident he has causes them to cross paths again.

Jena is a type A personality, that loves her job as a physical therapist, the order she has in her life, and doesn't like to lose. When she reconnects with Nicholas, it scares her to death because the order & reason that she values most in her life just flies out the window. The feelings that she has for Nicholas are so intense that she worries about losing herself in him and is afraid to trust completely in what they have together. Nicholas is closed off from his feelings because of his upbringing and Jena is bull-headed because her need to control everything that they almost let their love implode because of misunderstandings and miscommunications. In the end, they both come to an understanding that they love each other enough to recognize their shortcomings and want to change so that they can be with and not hurt each other. I LOVED the story, however, I wish there had been a little more insight into their happily ever after.

In this New Adult Contemporary Romance, Jena Baker and Nicolas Cooper--two who had admired each other in college but were unable to link up due to a sudden separation--meet again on New Year's Eve seven years later. And the sex, though it's not described, is EPIC. Except for one thing: Nick was too drunk to remember who his Angel is.

Haunted by dreams of the escapade, he is stunned to learn Jena was his special someone. Meanwhile, Jena, stung by Nick's poor memory is hesitant to enter an actual relationship with the object of her college crush.

What follows is an unsteady game of Misunderstanding as both Jena and Nick realize they are supremely attracted to each other, while having very little knowledge of the other. Their tentative dating results in a passion-fueled couplehood--complete with jealous bar fights, empty liquor bottles, disapproving parents, scheming friends, and lots and lots of hurt feelings. Pretty much dead-on for a realistic relationship, IMHO.

Told in alternating first-person, this tale gives the reader a window to both Jena and Nick's insecurities and certainties--because when the dust settles they're definitely *almost* sure they really might belong...together.

What I really enjoyed about this novel: the passion between Jena and Nick, the love of their friends, and the steadfast belief that they didn't know what the heck they were getting into.

For all that this is a contemporary romance the heat is tepid. Lots of discussion about sex had or to-be-had but no graphic smexy bits to make your hands steam up the reader screen. And, that's okay too.
