Review: Falling For Autumn by Heather Topham Wood

Falling For Autumn by Heather Topham Wood

Autumn Dorey had no problem leaving her hometown of Newpine and the friends there who’d betrayed her. Everyone thought they knew what happened the spring night Autumn’s world fell apart. Vicious rumors about the incident circulated, and she had to be homeschooled the last year of high school to escape her tormentors. All she wants now is to get away from it all and start over at Cook University. She leaves everything but the memory behind—something she swore she’d never forget—and sets off to rebuild what was broken.

Blake Preston is precisely the type of guy Autumn wants to avoid. He’s gorgeous, arrogant and the college’s beloved football star. As much as she believes he’s someone she should steer clear of, avoiding him proves to be impossible. He shows up everywhere around campus, offering her a no-strings attached friendship. 

Autumn can’t deny Blake stirs up emotions she thought fled years ago. But things he’s been hiding begin to emerge and collide with her past, leaving her heart ravaged in their wake.

Genre: NA Romance



Heather Topham Wood has written a wonderful and sad story (which kept me up to all hours of the night crying) about a girl who overcomes her fears from the past with the help and love of the guy she met at college. Their love story as woven itself into my heart - sweet, innocent (well until the last chapter ;) if you get what I mean), beautiful, and most importantly true.
I found myself wishing that there was a guy out there that I knew that was just like Blake, who did have his secrets, but couldn't stop himself from falling in love with Autumn. Their love wasn't rushed, and it wasn't instant love... if anything they both wanted to stay away from each other when they first met. Autumn was kind-hearted and grew so much through the story and finally was able to fully deal with what had occurred in the past.
This story was not only about the love that Autumn shared with Blake, but there was also a very strong message about the loyalty of friends, displayed through the actions, thoughts, and words of her two friends that Autumn had just met that year. Friendships that were stronger than any of the friendships that she had had throughout high school.
Note: I received this book free from Heather Topham Wood in exchange for an honest review.
