Title: Autumn Rising
Author: Seth King
Autumn Mahal and Hank Basara know they should stay away from each other. Both recovering from the loss of a mutual friend, and each bearing scars of their own, they know their love would look like a worn cliché, a trite romance novel for teens, some crappy made-for-TV movie languishing on your great aunt’s DVR. But as summer gives way to September and flirtation leads to something deeper, they learn there are some types of love you cannot run from, no matter how hard you try to flee.
Hilarious, heartbreaking and hopeful, Autumn Rising is a novella about the happiness we ruin for ourselves, the truths we can’t hide with a filter, and that elusive and victorious moment when we let love rush in and carry us to the sky. In a world of constant TMI, prepare to feel a story worth sharing – a story that will stay with you long after the summer fades to autumn.

Louisa’s 5 Star Review
A novella release by Seth King! What more could a girl ask for? A book from the same author as my #1 read this year (The Summer Remains)
So, how do you follow-up The Summer Remains? How do you even compare to the complex feelings that Seth brought to my life with The Summer Remains? Well, he did it with Autumn Rising.
Mr. King has taken it just one step further. How do you “get over” losing your best friend? How do you move on? How do you live without such an important part of you missing? Mr. King has done exactly that with Autumn Rising. He has done this with grace, tears and even a few laughs. Mr. King is witty and funny!
“A girl from high school, Victoria…suffered from a condition Autumn liked to call Kayne face, wherein someone looked so smug and obnoxious all the time, you got the urge to punch them in the face even when they weren’t saying anything.”
We have Autumn and Hank, two lives that were brought together by Summer and losing her could possibly bring them together and then tear them apart. Learning to heal from Summer’s death, learning to live with the constant scare of her cancer returning and Hank’s loss of his arm…these obstacles will make being together difficult, but is it possible they can heal each other?
“Because life breaks your heart. That is how this place works. What you must do if find someone who will fall into bed next to you every night and stare at you with burning eyes and put you back together again. Find a love that replenishes you…”
At times you may find the angst level to be unbearable. I think we may have a new “KING OF ANGST”! At times I wanted to strangle Autumn, the decisions she makes made me shiver, cringe and cry. Mr. King has the ability to make your heart hurt and make you want to give up on the belief that love can fix all things. You feel it all while reading this book.
The only problem I had with it? I NEED more. I will always needs more from this beautiful cast of characters. They have enlighten my spirit. They have changed my outlook on life. I dare to say, they have made me a better person. Bring on some Cooper next!!
Thank you Seth for sharing your words, your feelings and your brother’s life through your words. I feel honored to share them with you. I can almost guarantee you that he is smiling down upon you at this moment. He is smiling at your through his children eyes each day. You have most definitely made him proud.
Note: I am sure many see a young man writing a romance novel as not believable. But I would hope you would not allow that prejudice to sway you from reading this. This young man has put into words how many of us have felt while falling in love, growing up being the “not so popular girl”, and overall self deprecating beings that many women find themselves. How he has this insight is beyond me, but he is on point so many times, it’s as if he’s has snuck into my thoughts and read my mind.

::: Synopsis :::
The Summer Remains
Publication Date: February 14, 2015
*This is a full-length standalone romance*
Twenty-four-year-old Summer Johnson knows two things. The first is that due to a quickly worsening medical condition, she faces a risky surgery in three months’ time that may or may not end in her death. The second is that she would like to fall in love before then.
As spring sinks into her namesake season on the Florida coastline, Summer plays the odds and downloads a new dating app – and after one intriguing message from a beautiful surfer named Cooper Nichols, it becomes clear that the story of what may be her last few months under the sun is about to be completely revised. All she has to do now is write something worth reading.
Tender, honest, devastating and triumphant, The Summer Remains explores a very human battle being waged in a very digital age: the search for a love that will outlast this temporary borrowing of bones. In an era when many feel compelled to share and re-share anything about everything, prepare to feel a love so special, you will want to hug it close and make it yours forever.

The Goode Fight
Publication Date: October 12, 2014
:: Synopsis ::
THE THRILLING, EXPLOSIVE, AND PROVOCATIVE DEBUT FROM NEW ADULT ROMANCE AUTHOR SETH KING
In a stage of life when everything seems daunting, the fight to find love can still be the scariest thing of all – but in college senior Taylor Haney’s case, it may have just become downright deadly.
I’m bad – but I don’t want to be bad anymore.
In fact, leaving my Nashville life behind and swearing off love forever was the only thing keeping me from falling back into my old ways and fucking up again, and I was doing pretty well at pretending to be good – until I met Taylor Haney, that is.
Now I can think of nothing but Taylor. Her shy smile…the way she fidgets with her hands when she gets nervous…the sounds she makes when I tie her to my bedposts and go to town on her…the way I get a glimpse of eternity when I look into her hazel eyes…
And that little lovey feeling is the worst thing of all, because it means I’m breaking all my old rules now – and that means nobody is safe. Especially Taylor.
Because the last girl I fell in love with is currently lying in Brentwood Cemetery.

::: Synopsis :::
How far would you go to save someone you love? And how far would you go to get revenge on a loved one who betrayed you?
Ben Bradley is a twenty-year-old student and aspiring MMA fighter with a dead-end day job and a desperate need for cash to help his disabled sister out of a tight spot. Grace Robinson is a lonely forty-something D.C. housewife who spends her time reading about red rooms of pain while her husband busies himself with the office interns. And with the arrival of a controversial new app called Hookd that matches attractive young men with powerful women willing to pay for their companionship, Ben and Grace soon find incredibly appealing – and risky – solutions to their problems.
With Hookd, Ben can easily make the money to save his beloved sister, while Grace can get back at her cheating husband and spice up her quiet nights with the kind of hot, anonymous sex she only reads about in books. All they have to do now is get over their moral hang-ups and press download…
And then hope Grace’s vindictive husband, Congressman Richard Robinson, stays in the dark once Mrs. Robinson’s affair explodes into something more passionate and erotic than she could have ever imagined.
