Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Samantha Young....

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 heartbreak away....

Be Steal My Heart!

Oh, be still my heart. I do love when Samantha gives us these bonuses!
Autumn, we meet back in As Dust Dances, she is Killian O’Dea’s sister this was one HEA I was hoping we would get!

It is set in the Big Sky universe and now that I heard Sips and Drips again I miss judged that it wasn’t in the same world. (That was the Racheal Van Dyken book)

Back to Hold On Oh My God, Grayson and his words just swoon, my god, he is exactly who Autumn needed. They just clicked this whole book was amazing I am tempted to restart it because I loved it so much. It flowed, I was intrigued for being a short you don’t feel like you miss any character development at all if anything they feel like old friends by the time you’re done listening. I just loved it.

I am a HUGE Elle Newlands fan her accent, my god, I want to hear more and more books by her.

Hold On

I read Hold On as a companion to the Big Sky series crossover, not having read much by Samantha Young prior (at least nothing recently). I enjoyed the book very much, so I wanted to listen to the audio, as well. I felt like the story was told better through reading the book, although I very much enjoyed Elle Newlands' performance. It was great getting the Scottish accent to go along with the storyline!

could have been a good story

Did anyone else have difficulties following the narrative? it seemed to have no true narrator/ voice and yet a narrative from everyone at once.
Author really needs to transition better from one perspective to another.

Could have been a good story. Loved the plot and someone writing about a female veteran. Need a little more direction though with wiring style for me.

Just wow!

How much emotion and romance can 3 hours hold? Wow, amazing story that I listened to in one day. Autumn goes on vacation to the USA and meets (by accident) the love of her life. This is a love at first sight story with the twist that they live on different countries. So so good!!! And the narrator did an amazing job as well. Great accents and do much passion added. A must listen.

A great novella

I have been a fan of many of Samantha Young’s books so when I saw this novella available in the Audible Romance package, I was extremely excited and completed it in one sitting! The performance by Elle Newlands was great, the accent was spot on.

I loved the chemistry between Autumn and Grayson. Their story was more of an insta-love but Autumn had just gotten out of a toxic relationship and she wanted nothing to do with men so even though she felt that connection she tried to stay away. She was also visiting from Scotland so she couldn’t see this going anywhere. But Grayson was just as determined and he worked hard to be given a chance. Their story was sweet and definitely swoon-worthy. Not a lot of angst, just some sadness with what Autumn’s past relationships were like, but with Grayson now in her life, it is all beautiful. I enjoyed their story tremendously, now very interested in her brother, Killian’s story!

What Just Happened?

Samantha, I have loved your past books and could not wait to hear Autums story. She had such a personality when she was helping her brother and Sky. Her character did not appear in this book and there was absolutely no bones to the story to even get to Grayson. It was elementary and not your normal intriguing and alluring content.

I hope this is a ghost writer because I really want to have you come back with something as good as your Road reads.
