Oh my gosh! This was one of the most stunningly beautiful books I’ve read! I am so totally in love with both Sebastian and Autumn. I’ll be riding this high for a long while.

Second chance romances can be a bit tricky for me but holy heck, this one was absolute perfection! I loved the little flashbacks of Seb and Autumn as well as Brady, Autumn’s brother. It gave just enough background to their relationship, how it developed and where it led them.

My Lord, this book was the most uplifting thing I’ve ever read. Shame on me, but J.A. DeRouen is an absolutely new-to-me author and now, after reading this story, I feel like a missing piece of me find it’s place to home. Waiting for Autumn has changed the way I look at books. It’s that kind of experience you enjoy through the chapters and never want it to end. And when you hit the last page, all you want to do is to start it all over again.

J.A. DeRouen’s writing is simply flawless. Her story, h

I love all kinds of romance but what I think I enjoy the most is getting lost in a sweet and simple love story that has characters you can believe in and never want to leave. A decision and a few words made as teenagers changes the course of two people in love. My heart ached as I read the beginnings of Sebastian and Autumn’s story. Floating between their sweet past as childhood sweethearts and present day peels back layers. I love the discovery and my slightly erratic heartbeat needs me to turn ...more

Ohhhhhh my. This book made me heart ache. Ache so sweet.

A true second chance story for Sebastian and Autumn. A tragedy that tore them apart just at the end of school, rupturing the life that was set out for them. Now, they will meet again. And it's not going to be easy to task to get to talking or reconnecting.

J.a. DeRouen just hit it out of the park. This story is so nuanced and comes with one or two surprises that will make you rethink all you've read before. Sebastian and Autumn are complex

A wonderful, beautifully written story of first loves and second chances. Sebastian and Autumn have a once in a lifetime love that began as kids, and I loved how J.A. DeRouen peppered their story with events from the past to highlight how they still affected them in the present. When they're thrown back together years later, the slow burn that sizzles off the page until they find their way back to each other had me on the edge of my seat. I loved every second of this book, and am hoping the awes ...more

When I first met Seb and Autumn as part of the Begin Again anthology I hoped and wished that it wouldn't be the last time I read about them. The book fairies heard my prayers and I was so excited when JA DeRouen decided to make their story into a full length novel. This second chance, childhood friends to lovers tale will have you laughing, crying, and swooning from page 1.

This was such an emotional read. It was at times painful and heart wrenching seeing these two ripped apart and unable to tru

Waiting for Autumn is the kind of second chance romance I adore. J.A. DeRouen once again creates a touching New Adult storyline with incredible characters that I simply could not put down. Sebastian and Autumn were always meant to be, their practically perfect path to happiness thrown a huge curveball. Getting a bit of their past as they fall madly in love as teenagers was welcomed as their current lives 5 years later are filled with trepidation and regret. I needed to know what had happened to ...more

Waiting for Autumn is an extended version that was originally found in the Begin Again anthology. JA DeRouen did a phenomenal job of taking the elements from that short story and developing it into a full-length novel!

Autumn and Sebastian have been in love for as long as they can remember. Sebastian and Autumn's brother, Brady, have been friends since infancy. They played together and challenged each other constantly. Until it backfires and Sebastian is forced to leave. But five years later, the

Autumn and Sebastian had been friends forever. They grew up together. When they were teens, it grew into more. Right before Sebastian and Autumn’s brother Brady were supposed to go away to college, tragedy strikes. Sebastian leaves town and Autumn behind. Flash forward 5 years later and the two see each other again. Can they go back to their forever or are the years and the past too much to overcome?

Words can’t describe the love I have for this book! I read it originally as part of an anthology and I could tout it down! Cue the freak out screams when I realized it was going to be a full length novel!! And boy did Ms. Derouen blow it out of the water!!

Sebastian and Autumn were destined for each other from the beginning. But soon life has other ideas. And those other ideas begin the journey of these twos lives. It’s beautiful and poignant, it will make you laugh and cry, but most importantly

Sweet second chance romance that shows not everything is as it seems. Sebestian, Autumn and Brady grew up being best friends, they did everything together. All the way up until the moment that changed everything in a heartbeat. If they could go back and change it, they would but you can't go back, you can only go forward.

Sebestian and Autumn have went on their lives but felt that they were missing pieces of themselves. When circumstances throw them together again and the truth comes out will the
