There’s nothing worse for a writer than missing a deadline. For Griffin Montgomery, his failure to do what he loves comes at a blow. He didn’t understand how it was affecting his life until his well-meaning family intercedes. His sisters have hired him a new personal assistant and he’s outraged—that is, until he sees who it is.
Autumn Minor is light on her feet and a bare memory for most people she meets. She does her best to blend in everywhere she lives, even if it’s only for a short period of time. Making sure no one truly notices her is the only way she’s survived this long. Only when she meets Griffin and the rest of the Montgomery’s, she’s afraid she won’t be able to let go when its time to run.
Though the two begin a tentative but explosive relationship, they know it can’t last forever. Neither of them are made for the long haul when it comes to love and romance. When the demons from Autumn’s past find her and put both their lives at risk, Griffin will stop at nothing to protect her. In the end, though, he’ll be the one who needs a second chance
This book was a gift in exchange for an honest review.
I love this series and in this book we get a look at everyone and more. By more I mean hints at the books that are coming.
While this is about Griffin and Autumn, we learn a bit more about Jake, Maya’s friend. We are introduced briefly to Holly , Jakes girlfriend and Border Jake’s one time lover/friend? There is more of Sloane’s growly protectiveness of Hailey. Baby announcements, can you guess who? An update on Alex in rehab. News on Dad’s cancer. So much new information that makes me ache for the next book.
The Montgomery’s are known for taking care of their own. When Griffin gets behind on his deadline due to a rather intense case of writer’s block, his Mom, along with his sisters lovingly called the M & M’s (Meghan, Maya and Miranda), step in with a solution. One he is given no choice but to accept.
The beautiful and mysterious Autumn will become his personal assistant. Hired by the women in his life, he can’t fire her, as he has with others in the past. She will organize everything around him so he can concentrate on the important things, writing.
We met Autumn at the end of Megan and Luc’s book Harder Than Words. An interesting young lady who never gets attached to any one place. Now we will find out why she runs. Will she continue to, now that she has found something she never expected?
I usually put up a passage but this from Griffin’s head really touched me.
He didn’t know why that hurt, but he pushed it aside like he had all the other times words had hurt. Words were far more powerful than most believed. That’s why he wrote them.
From the messy house to organization, this book held me in it’s tight clutches to the very end. Some inventive hot sexy scenes and so much more. Laughing and crying and just plain more please.
I can’t wait for the next in this series.
