Aiden (foreground on the cover) and Noah bump into each other coming off the subway in London, strike each other as hot, and go their separate ways. Not quite. Read the blurb of "As the Leaves Fall" for the outline. What is key here is that Jones carries off a difficult narrative task by alternating the POV in each chapter. The amazing thing is that she gets into the head (and under the skins) of these exceptionally brilliant but love-sick men and takes you on a wonderfully relaxing journey to fulfillment.
Along the way their developing relationship is stalked and almost battered by Marcus, a devious sort of colleague who seems a bit off center each time he appears, and is definitely not one to be trusted, or liked.
How ironic, then, that he should become one of the two MCs, along with Adam, in "As the Ice Melts," the second in the series, also told in alternating POV chapters. He's the blond in the foreground on the cover and his story is far more complex, and gripping, and heart wrenching, than that of Aiden and Noah. Whereas those two are pretty much on their own in their book, Marcus is surrounded by a cluster of real, and well developed, characters, such as his Gran, Adam and is mum, and his best mates Colin and Jerry.
This book should not be considered a stand-alone, even if Aiden and Noah don't appear. You have to read theirs to get into the mood for Marcus and Adam which is a wonderful continuation of an attitude by an author who is pretty good at developing them.
I adored both of these MCs. Aiden and Noah were fantastic, solid characters. I loved the pace of their relationship. From great teamwork to friendship to finally giving in to their feelings and engaging in a romantic relationship. They were genuine with one another and completely devoted to each other. Both putting the other first over their careers.
I was not a fan of that troublemaker Marcus. But I know R.J. Jones will be redeeming him in the next book.
If you are looking for a low angst, well written romance, I definitely recommend you check this one out! 5 stars
As The Leaves Fall is a very light read, one that can be read in two hours tops. It is romantic, relaxing, and the aww factor is up there. There was no insta-love but there was insta-attraction and sets the pace of their relationship when the two finally decide to hide and make a go of their growing attraction. There were petty jealousies that got in the way, the exes, present and absent, reared their ugly heads, and someone at work was suspiciously too watchful over their interaction.
Overall, this was a truly enjoyable and one I can honestly recommend for those who want zero frustration reads that gets down on the romance from page one, sizzle a bit in a few places, and leaves the face smiling at the possibilities of Aidan and Noah in the future.
Noah Walker needs a new job and he is one of the final candidates for his dream opportunity. On his way to the interview, he sees a gorgeous man that he can't help stare at. They exchange looks and end up talking and walking a short bit together when they get off the same tube stop. Aiden invites Noah for a coffee before his interview, but as much as Noah would love to, he says no so he can prepare for his interview. Wouldn't it just be fate when Aiden shows up at the office with coffee to do complete his final interviews...and it is the same one Noah is there for. I loved the circumstances regarding the other applicant (it seemed a bit obvious, but it really made me chuckle).
Aiden had a relationship in the workplace previously that went very poorly at the end. Aiden is determined to keep his interactions with Noah strictly business, but the spark between them and the easy camaraderie and friendship the two develop makes those boundaries blurred. It isn't an easy road for them, but Noah and Aiden are able to find a Happily Ever After that was believable. They had a chemistry together that pulled me in and had me rooting for them. I loved reading about them. I am so glad I got the opportunity to read this book and find a new author. I am really looking forward to the next book. Marcus annoyed me in book 1, so it will be interesting to find more out about him.
As for the title? I absolutely love it. It seems like it has nothing to do with the story itself, but the one place it is inserted in is so dang romantic. It was a perfect way to express the realization of feelings.
