Publisher's Summary

Autumn Brooks knows one thing for certain. All. Men. Are. The. Same. Especially guys like Jaxon West. Sexy smile. Bright blue eyes and perfectly tousled jet black hair.  

You know what guys like that are? Nothing but trouble. And he's broken her heart once already.  

Jaxon West may not know a lot of things, but he knows one thing for certain. He will get Autumn Jane Brooks back.  

Autumn and Jax were “that couple” in high school. Always together and so in love. They were supposed to be together forever until something drove them apart. Jax left without so much as a goodbye, leaving Autumn heartbroken and alone.  

Autumn moved on, running a bookstore and popular bakery in the charming small town of Walla Walla. Jax set out to pursue his dreams of becoming a rock star in Chicago.  

For Jax and his band, The Living Room Sessions, breaking into the music business was hard. And no matter how hard he tried, he never could get Autumn out of his mind. Ten years later, almost to the day, he’s back, and he’s determined to win her heart. An effort she won’t make easy on him. 

But when he finally does, can their relationship survive long distance? Can it survive the secret he’s keeping from her? Does this second chance get a happily ever after?  

Author note: This audiobook contains mature subject content including: steamy sex, frequent use of F-bombs, and alcohol use. Although it is part of a series, there is no cliff-hanger. Please also note, this is a long-distance relationship where the couple is together, but separate half of the time.

Fall into the story

When a book draws you in and has you feeling everything the characters feel, you know you are in for a treat. Autumn and Jax are high school sweethearts. Rock and roll dreams call to Jax and he leaves without warning leaving a brokenhearted Autumn. Now 10 years later and realizing what he wants, he is back to claim what is his. But will Autumn be able to forgive him and move on? There is much to say when people mature and life goes on, but a first love is so strong, that feeling is hard to forget. There are secrets to be shared, and difficulties with each living in their own towns. Will they survive the distance? I found at times I was frustrated with Autumn, wanting her to pick up and move! At the same time , I could feel her roots where she is and wanted Jax to figure out his life and come back! Alyne Hart has such a well developed plot and set of characters that it is easy to fall into their lives and experience their journey.

Narrated by Steven Barrett, he provides a wonderful performance. It is my first time hearing him and I enjoyed his array of voices and pace. He is one I will look for in the future.

Great Read

Rocking Autumn by Alyne Hart was a great read. I absolutely loved reading Autumn and Jaxon's story. They are definitely two people who deserve a second chance at love. They were in love in high school but things went bad after one fateful day. Autumn is now a bookstore owner who still loves her rock star first love. I absolutely fell in love with Autumn and Jaxon and can't wait to read more by Alyne Hart.

This was wonderful!!!

I really loved Jax and Autumn!!! It was a great story of past pain and loss and present healing. I enjoyed every minute of it!

Steven Barrett as narrator was perfect for this! His voice is deep and buttery and he played the characters very, very convincingly!

2nd Chance Rocks

This 2nd chance romance is the story of 2 people finding themselves as well as each other. The loss associated with a miscarriage is hard at any age. I can not imagine dealing with it 17 or 18 years old.

Second chance romance with heart!

Alyne Hart knows how to write a beautiful and emotional story! Second chance romances are one of my favorite tropes and I loved this one so hard!

Young love is such a fragile yet strong emotion all at once. There can be pain, but also healing if the love and bond are strong enough and with Jax and Autumn it was. Alyne Hart has this knack for making her characters so endearing to the reader/listener that you quickly become so invested in the story and feel right along with them. I suggest having a comfy place to curl up in and some tissues handy as you listen. My heart ached for Autumn and Jax and the monumental loss they endure, but I also sometimes wanted to shake each of them and tell them to get their crap together. Have no fear though! This isn’t just a tear jerker. This is also a story of healing and hope and a beautiful love. The story was so well written and characters so well developed that it was easy to get lost in it and I was sad when it was over. Luckily I can listen again and again! And I plan to very soon.

Steven Barrett is a new to me narrator and I really enjoyed his work. He made for a dreamy Jax and did great work of bring all the many emotions of the story to life. I’m excite for more from him. 5 Stars.

Bam!!

Let me start by saying I thoroughly enjoyed this book. it had great characters that I could find myself rooting for. I thought the story was endearing. You could feel the love buried beneath the years of pain and anger. I felt for them as I could see they were meant for each other however life sometimes just doesn't line up right. They had to endure a lot and decide what was really important to them. I felt like Alyne was playing tug of war with my emotions however I am happier for it. Great job! I loved the ending however i am screaming in my head right now that if book two doesn't come out soon, i may cry. I would love to read more on this couple.

The narration was good however as a small note, I would love to have had a bit more variance in the voices, specifically the female or to have heard it in Dual narration. But all in all, it was a fine performance. Clean editing, clear voice and enjoyable.

I have read a couple books from Alyne now and can say I would definitely purchase more. They all have been fantastic reads.

Rocking Autumn

Okay, I have to admit that having a male narration of this book almost made me rethink buying it! So glad I did! Steven Barrett has such a sexy voice! Loved all of it! YES more of Jax! I love this. So many of the “rockstar” books are all about the fame. Thank goodness this one had heart!

Amazing story.

I fell in love with this story. I love how it is told over a long distance love story. You get to feel all the emotions of both characters.. I loved Autumn she is lovely and thinks of others before herself. Jax was so in love with Autumn but when you have a passion you just have to follow your dreams. The book is split in two parts the first is Autumn and Jax meeting back up after 10 years and trying to deal with issues of the past. The second part is the long distant relationship part and it's just so heartbreaking. I had a few tears in my eyes listening well maybe more than a few. This is such a great story I can not recommend it enough. So much happens you just get drawn into the story. I loved Steven Barrett he did such a great job he only changed the way he spoke a little bit from male to female characters but is was just right. I will be listening again after a while it was just that good. Please give Rocking Autumn a listen you won't regret it.x
