There are worse things in life than loving a man who hates you.

Unfortunately, Walford Gallifrey can’t think of many.

Ever since a ghost from his past kidnapped his niece, Willow (THE FOUND, Crow City #2), Wally’s life has been nothing but grief, turmoil, and loss. With no idea if Willow is dead or alive, Wally’s only comfort is in caring for his grieving brother-in-law and

It's no secret I have a huge love for Cole McCade's writing and everything he encompasses in his stories. And, having read all his books, I have to say Autumn is my favourite: the perfect combination of enemies and friends-to-lovers, it's the most beautifully wrapped happy-ever-after gift for two amazing men.

"A tryst. A liaison. An entanglement. Or...a second chance at what could have been."

Joseph and Walford's story swallowed me up right from the very start. Wally is a character I've loved

This book. This BOOK. I have trouble stringing sentences together in a coherent and comprehensive way. The short of it: I loved it. LOVED it. It's part of the Crow City series, but I'm living and FLAILING proof that you can enjoy and love the heck out of this book without having read the previous titles. Although I firmly believe you'd get *even more* out of it if you actually do read them all.

Now AUTUMN, that is a special book I'm going to hold close to my heart for a long time. It's no secret

I received an advance review copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

As a fan of the Crow City series, curling up with Autumn was like basking in a precious spot of sun on a cold, blustery day. It featured the gorgeous prose and unadulterated emotion that has so far been a hallmark of the series (and its author, Cole McCade aka Xen Sanders) yet Autumn was drastically distinct from its predecessors in mood and tone. If the other books were sketched in bold str

As authors set out to write series about interconnected people, I don't know that they anticipate secondary characters that take on a life of their own...begging for their story to be told. It does happen but I can think of only a handful in all the books I have read that have a character I hold dear to my heart. Walford Gallifrey is undoubtedly in the top 5 of secondary characters of all time. Throughout this series we see his whimsy, his humor, his loving heart, and his ability to keep secrets ...more

Crow City, full of darkness and sunshine. Full of weirdos with china cups for drinking tea. My heart is so invested in this place that I know how it smells, I know how it sounds. I could touch and feel the bright puffball dresses in Wally's shop. I can taste blueberry muffins - not the turkey sandwiches though #vegetarian. Only a great writer can deliver those senses, and Cole is a great, great writer.

The character of Wally had me in the palm of his hand from the moment I found him in The Lost.

Wow! I did not see this coming. Autumn is part of the Crow City series. I have had the pleasure of reading the whole series and have loved it. It's unique, dark, and has its twists and turns. I don't think you have to read the previous books BUT I highly recommend it so you have an understanding of what is going on. I actually didn't even read the synopsis before signing up to read this book, I already knew that I wanted it. Like I said I didn't see this coming...

I'm not going to give this book a star rating for a few reasons.

1.) The writing is not a style I enjoy - it's filled with metaphors and purple prose and at times I just wanted to hear the dialogue (instead of inner monologue) or something more concrete to move the story forward. But that's just me and doesn't reflect the on the quality of writing or actual story which I'll get to in a second. (If you love Charlotte Stein then McCade's writing is similar).
2.) I haven't read the other books in the

This was so good, beautiful and heart-warming! Not as dark as the previous in the series, almost fluffy :)

Full review now posted on Ellie Reads All the Books

This is the fifth book in the series, after two novels and two novellas and the first queer one. And unlike all the previous, it's so much lighter, happier and heart-warming and how it can any other way when one the heroes is Walford Gallifrey. He brought warmth and tenderness even in the darkest moments in the previous books, so I

This book took me a little while to get into, largely because it was so different than what I think I was expecting.

In my head, this was going to be a gay romance, and it certainly was, but Cole McCade manages to put grittiness into his romance like nobody else I've ever read. And, you know what? After I got used to that fact, I loved this book absolutely.

Joseph is a man whose daughter, Willow, has been kidnapped. He finds himself listening to the last voicemail message she left him over and o

"Even bad people can love someone."

Sometimes the supporting characters in a story are just too much. They're so well-written that the reader wants more. More of those guys in the back, if you please. If you've read the Crow City series you'll know the ache I'm speaking of. Wally and Joseph needed their moment in the sun and Cole McCade did not disappoint.

I'm pleased as punch if you've read the Crow City series because the emotional entanglement will just run deeper for you with Autumn. But! If

Cole has done it again!! He has transported us back to Crow City in another story that will grab your heart and take you to a place you least unexpected to go. He takes us on the journey with characters that you've met before if you've read any of the other Crow City books. The lovable, yet weirdly odd Walford, or Wally, "I must command attention, project gravitas, entice excitement, and build an aura of wonder, mystery and anticipation. Without those capabilities in a ringmaster, a circus is no ...more

Recommends it for: Anyone who likes same sex genre
I received this book free and I have never read a book by this author before.
I cannot say I ‘enjoyed’ reading it as I cried almost the whole way though.
Some gay sex and lots of swearing.
This book took me on a roller coaster of emotions.
A roller coaster I feel better for ridding.

I never wanted this novella to end. A lighter story in the Crow City series, Autumn is still a deep unpacking of messy feelings and dark secrets. This M/M romance features a divorced, disabled engineer and a flowery dreamer who has been pining after his sister's ex for years.

Wally and Joseph (never Joe) are so right for each other and deserved a happy ending together. I love this book so much.

This is how to write romance - emotion, love, friendship, good sense of place. If any book could conjure characters into real, live existence, purely through the power of the words on the page, then this would be it.

Slender. Angry. (Part) Asian.
