Autumn O’Dea has always tried to see the best in people while her big brother, Killian, has always tried to protect her from the worst. While their lonely upbringing made Killian a cynic, it isn’t in Autumn’s nature to be anything but warm and open. However, after a series of relationship disasters and the unsettling realization that she’s drifting aimlessly through life, Autumn wonders if she’s left herself too vulnerable to the world. Deciding some distance from the security blanket of her brother and an unmotivated life in Glasgow is exactly what she needs to find herself, Autumn takes up her friend’s offer to stay at a ski resort in the snowy hills of Montana. Some guy-free alone time on Whitetail Mountain sounds just the thing to get to know herself better.

However, she wasn’t counting on colliding into sexy Grayson King on the slopes. Autumn has never met anyone like Gray. Confident, smart, with a wicked sense of humor, he makes the men she dated seem like boys. Her attraction to him immediately puts her on the defense because being open-hearted in the past has only gotten it broken. Yet it becomes increasingly difficult to resist a man who is not only determined to seduce her, but adamant about helping her find her purpose in life and embrace the person she is. Autumn knows she shouldn’t fall for Gray. It can only end badly. After all their lives are divided by an ocean and their inevitable separation is just another heart break away…

The Kristen Proby Crossover Collection features a new novel by Kristen Proby and by six of her favorite writers!

My Review

Even though, I’ll admit, I’m not usually a romance reader who enjoys love at first sight story lines, the way that Samantha Young develops Autumn O’Dea and Grayson King’s instant attraction into a kismet-like connection, exploring what it is about each other that they can’t seem to and don’t want to let slip away, I was completely sold on their desire and need for one another, and let me tell you, the more time these two spend together, the easier it is to understand that even though they’ve only known each other for a few days, they’ve both found their ‘one’ and they’ll fight like hell to hold onto it regardless of the obstacles that must be faced, especially a certain older brother and the fact that they live so far away from each other.

I absolutely loved Autumn’s character. I’m a wear her heart on her sleeve kind of girl just like Autumn is, so I completely understood her need to escape her life in Glasgow, seeking refuge where no one knows who she is…where she can take a bit of time to figure out what she wants for herself and then develop a plan for the rest of her life – one that both fulfills her and allows her to give back. It’s clear that Autumn revels in other people’s happiness and like Gray calls her, Autumn is quite angelic in her kindness, in her love of life, and in the way she always tries to see the best in every single person she meets.

There is not a single doubt in my mind that if Grayson King asked me to hold onto him for the rest of my life, I would gladly hold on as tightly as I could because holy crap can that man romance. At first, his declarations seemed like the typical lines guys use to get something they want, but as the story continued and Gray’s way with words led to movements that more than proved his feelings for Autumn, I knew he was the real deal and that Autumn was one heck of a lucky lady!

The amount of butterflies and feelings Samantha Young packs into this novella is quite the feat, especially given the fact that the hero and the heroine are total strangers until she literally skis into him.

I adore both Kristen Proby’s and Samantha Young’s worlds, so the fact that they’re brought together is the best of both worlds for me:)
