Anna Kirby went to New York to escape heartbreak and have some fun. She wasn't meant to meet someone . . . someone like Ethan. Now, back in London, she's having to get over a man who's three thousand miles away....
Ethan Scott broke every one of his rules during his week with Anna and now he can't seem to go back to life before her. A business trip to London gives him the opportunity to change his rules for good. Will he take it?
Autumn in London is the second part of The Empire State Series, a series of three novellas.
Follow up to A Week in New York.
If you guys remember my review of A Week in New York from not too long ago, you will remember that I loved the sexy fun feel of the book. Well, Autumn in London was no different. There is still all the fun that I loved about Ethan and Anna, but they are past the getting to know you stage so their relationship felt deeper and more real to me. This time, the book takes place, as the title suggests, in London. Ethan’s New York law firm is merging with Anna’s London law firm, and neither of them had any idea. It was an interesting story development. And as a side note, I love how well the two covers go with one another.
Ethan and Anna have insane chemistry, so I loved watching the two of them around each other. Even during their time away from one another, they still left their marks. I thought it was so cute to watch them pine at the start of the story. But the adorableness of them pining was nothing compared to the force of nature they are when they are in the same room. There is nothing like them. I do wish they would be more open about what they want. They both need to work on their communication, big time. It was painful watching neither of them say what they wanted, when you know that they each wanted the same thing. So much heartache and stress could have been avoided with a conversation up front. But they were each scared. I get that. I am anxious to see what is going to happen with them in the third part of the trilogy. I think it will be back in New York again, or maybe split between the two cities.
As you may know, novellas and serial length series are a hit or miss for me. Because of their shorter length, they are open to so many story development problems. And when that happens, I am almost always left wanting more from these shorter stories. BUT if they are well done, novella length series can be some of my favorites, because you can pick them up and read them in one sitting and fall in love quickly. Like instant gratification. The Empire State Trilogy is one of the not only good ones, but GREAT ones. I am so in love with Ethan and Anna. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book and now I am equally excited and scared for the final installment. I want to keep reading RIGHT NOW, but I also don’t want to say goodbye to the characters yet. I am not ready for their story to end.
