I have to be honest, I did not care for Autumn in TSR at all. She was a way over the top about a lot of things. She was completely obsessive about seemingly everyone around her getting married when she was alone. She was narcissistic and brash, and she really didn’t have a filter. Sometimes her words were hurtful when she really didn't mean them to be. As for Hank, we didn’t get to see a lot of him in TSR except to find out he was a disabled Army vet who had lost his arm in a roadside bomb attack. He was broody and angry and thought himself to be in love with Summer.
But somehow, in a way only Seth can, he made me fall madly in love with Autumn and Hank. He shows us that Autumn’s audacious attitude is a defense mechanism. She’s extremely insecure and scared of a lot of things, so she attempts to hide that behind a tough exterior. And Hank is extremely sweet once he opens up and allows himself to care for people. He speaks one of my favorite lines early on in the novella, “I’m all dark, and you’re a kaleidoscope.” Seth's description of Hank’s transformation is perfect, “Soon he found the suit of armor that was his past falling away, the force field of Grumpy Army Hank shattering, and he was freed of the empty persona the world had forced him to become.”
While there is some angst to be dealt with between these two damaged souls, there is lots of funny stuff, too. I was outright laughing at so many of the lines that I’m sure anyone around me thought I was nuts. Seth’s wit definitely comes out in this one. A couple more of my favorite lines: “She was sweating like a Kardashian in church.” and “Autumn’s face had only two modes: resting bitch face, or batshit crazy lunatic.”
Be sure and stay all the way to the end, too, because there is a little taste of what’s coming next.
Whatever you do, don’t pass up this gem of a novella. I am forever a fan of Seth’s amazing writing, and I’m sure you will be won over as well.
Autumn and Hank. Love is not a a good enough word for what I feel for them. Autumn might actually be me in the form of a book character. This might just be me but I found her completely relatable. She's funny, real and slightly damanged. And Hank. You wouldn't think he would be someone that was very deep. War veteran missing a limb. He's so much more than that. He has so many layers that you just want to sit there and peel away. The bond and love these two share is amazing and inspiring but not unrealistic. Seth hits such real emotions and issues with this subtle intensity that I've only ever seen from him. It's stunning.
Little secret, this book is hilarious. I laughed, out loud, through out the whole thing. My family stared at me like I was nuts. "Sorry, Seth" is all I had to say. They understood.
Most novellas are horribly paced. Either too slow and then rushed at the end or just plain rushed. Autumn Rising is perfectly paced. It just flowed.
Make sure you get to the end! It's well worth it, I promise.
Seth King is dominating the NA genre and squashing every single stereotype along the way.

I fell in love with Autumn in TSR; she is one of those characters that just stuck with me ever since. I was SO elated to find out that this book was about her and Hank! She is unlike any character I have EVER had the pleasure to meet. She is someone I truly wish I could be friends with in real life. She's witty, snarky, honest, and FUNNY AS HELL. But, we also get to really know her. We get to know her fears, her concerns about her life (we all have them don't we?), and we get the scoop on her day to day dilemmas. When she stumbles across Hank at a funeral, she doesn't have a clue what she's in for with him. This unlikely pair had me intrigued from the second they started conversing. I wanted so much for them, sitting here on the other side of the pages. I rooted for them from the very start. I am a huge fan of funny. And let me tell you, this book had SO mucch of it!! The things that came out of that girl's mouth..omg. I will never forget the one liners she's blurted out. I mean LOL big time. One thing I also want to mention is the honesty. There is SO much truth in this story. In life, there are always lessons to be learned and I found many of them within the pages of this beautiful book. It feels as though the author writes with the wisdom of a thousand lives. Seth King is not just raising the bar, he's smashing it. This is a MUST read people!
