This is part of a series (which you should read because the other stories are good too) but can totally be read alone. I loved visiting with some of the past characters though!! Highly recommended.
Nate Hunter was living the life of a college sophomore without actually being in college. He actually graduated several years before. That is until Lexi, a hookup from his past, shows up while he is bartending and fighting a hangover. She tells him she is dying and wants him to take care of THEIR four year old daughter. Needless to say his whole world is turned upside down with this. How can he take care of a four year old when he can't take care of himself. Enter Maxine Abbott local librarian who is looking to move out of her mother's house and win a Fulbright scholarship to study in England.
Max and Nate run into each other at a local gym while Max is waiting for her mother and Nate had just finished working out. After talking with each other they both walk away with the same idea...Max should move in with Nate and Autumn. This is that story.
This was an easy read that I enjoyed very much. I even cried a little.
Autumn Allure is the fourth book in the Pine Point series but can be read as a stand-alone. I love this series and my visits to Pine Point never disappoint! I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Nate’s a good guy but just drifting through life, not wanting to get serious and with the drive to grow up and move on with his life. So he is not expecting to see a face from the past, and certainly isn’t ready to hear that he has a daughter – a daughter he knew nothing about who will soon be without a mother. The opening scenes are powerful. You don’t know until he does it what Nate will do, and you don’t know how it’s going to work out. He may be determined to do the right thing, but is he mature enough to actually do it? And what will become of Autumn if he can’t cut it?
Max is the local children’s librarian, and she’s also living in a rut. She’s applied several times to go to England to study at a well-known library, but her application has yet to be accepted, and in the meantime she’s living with her mother – and in her mother’s shadow. Max’s mom is one of those moms who doesn’t want to grow old and leave the glory days when they were a sought-after beauty, and views a daughter as either competition or a project, someone to mold into her own likeness. Not much motherly nurturing going on there.
Max knows Nate through his sister, but they haven’t connected in years. They meet again by chance, and a little at a time a grand plan is born! Max will move into Nate's sister's room and help to look after Autumn, and in return Nate will pretend to be Max's boyfriend to her mother and be her 'plus one' to events she has to attend for her mother’s campaign. The first little tingle starts when you realize that Max and Nate have both come up with basically the same plan. You know something is going to happen between them – good? bad? hearts broken? – and you can’t wait to watch it unfold.
Nate and Max together are funny and sexy (oh, yes!) and aggravating and sad and just about perfect, whether they realize it yet or not. And there is enough suspense at the end of the book to make you wonder if they ever will realize it and have the courage to speak up about it. Doing the right thing doesn’t always mean doing the thing that makes everybody happy.
This story is beautifully told and I thoroughly enjoyed it. You are instantly drawn in, and both the main and supporting characters have depth that makes you want to know them better. Every book I read by Allie Boniface becomes my new favorite, and this is no exception. I highly recommend Autumn Allure.
I love the stories with a fake something involved in them because they make me laugh. And not in the bad eye-rolling way, but in the .... c'mon now, ya'll know that ain't never gonna fly way~LOL. So I love the hiccups and the bumps in the road and the whole shattering of barriers all around them ... I dunno, it humors me. Because even tho this is fiction, people try this in real life ... bwaaaaahahahahahahahaha.
So I knew going in the story would entertain me and I wasn't wrong. And because it was written so well, it also kept my attention. This turned out to be a really sweet, heart=warming journey of two people who found what they were looking in each other that didn't even know they were looking for something :) Fast-paced, one sitting type of story that will make you happy and have you smiling throughout!
