Release Blitz with Review: Waiting For Autumn by J.A. DeRouen

Title: Waiting For Autumn
Author: J.A. DeRouen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 25, 2018 
“Race me for it.” 
Four simple words. Five desolate years.
Sebastian Kelly believes he isn’t worthy of redemption, of a chance to right his wrongs. But an unexpected trip home, the place he dreads most, calls in question everything he’s come to believe. And who knows, he may find exactly what he’s been waiting for. 
One broken promise. Two pink lines.
Autumn Norris knew in an instant her life would never be the same. Years have flown by in a flurry of sparkles and dress up, and Autumn has refused to let the anchor of regret pull her under. 
Until she lays eyes on Sebastian, and the wave of why, where, and how could you flood her every thought.
Old hurt and new betrayal twist first love into a reluctant partnership, and theirs may be a bond even pigtails and butterfly kisses can’t mend. But the past five years have felt like a lifetime, and Seb is willing to wait as long as it takes.
Because the truth is, he’s always been waiting for Autumn.

“This author again floors me. She brings together a Story about love, loss, and a forever that nobody can touch.” – Books and Bandanas

“My Lord, this book was the most uplifting thing I’ve ever read.” – Little Red Reading Hood

“…J.A. DeRouen’s exquisitely beautiful writing to all of that and you have the makings of this 5-Star read…” – Bewitched Reader

My Review

“Sometimes forgiveness is about letting go–taking that five-ton boulder off your chest and heaving it into the abyss. I’ve carried this weight for far too long.”

“Five years, ten…blonde hair or black. It makes no difference. Autumn Norris will always have a direct line straight to my heart.”

“Loving Autumn was never a conscious decision. No, our relationship was a living, breathing thing, constantly morphing and changing through the years. Maybe that was why losing her rocked me to my very core. Because loving her was like a golden thread of memories woven into the deepest part of me.”

“The possiblity of something more…I’ve lived on less, so much less than that over the last few years. I think I’ll take my chances.”

Waiting for Autumn is a beautiful and heartbreaking second chance romance. From the moment you meet Autumn and Sebastian, you can just feel the love between the two of them. It’s that once in a life time, destined for one another love. The sky was the limit for these two….That is until tragedy stuck. This one moment in time destroyed everything and ripped them apart. Decisions were made and actions were taken. Secrets were made that would remain buried until fate decided to intervene….Years later, these two former lovers will once again be brought together. The regret and pain still burning between them. But underneath all that pain is a spark that refuses to be put out. So much has happened, but a love like this can never be forgotten…Will Autumn and Sebastian find their way through all the pain and regret? Will they be able to forgive, forget and finally be able to move on? Will Autumn and Sebastian finally get their happily ever after??? There’s only one way to find out…..

Waiting for Autumn was everything I wanted and then some. This story tugged at my heart and gave me all the feels. I was captivated from the very first page and I hung on to every word. I couldn’t read through the pages fast enough and could not put this book down. Waiting for Autumn is a book that you can easily finish in just one sitting and I dare you to not devour each and every word. This story will consume you and keep you begging for more. The hurt. The pain. The longing. The emotions…it’s all so palpable and real. You experience each moment, each emotion right along with the characters as if they were your own. This story is complicated, yet beautiful as the same time. You’ll laugh. You’ll have tears in your eyes. You’ll swoon and rage all at the same time.

Waiting for Autumn is the perfect story to spend your day getting swept away in. The story captivating you and making you fall in love with the very first page. The characters are real, flawed and perfectly imperfect. Their love and pain is the kind that is worth fighting for and never giving up on. It’s complicated. It’s beautiful. It’s everything I never knew I needed..
