Publisher's Summary

Love can appear unexpectedly: a chance meeting at a friend's wedding, the arrival of a handsome new co-worker...or while being robbed at a convenience store.
For some, love seems an impossible dream. Growing up gay in small-town Missouri, Jace Holden thought his chance would never come. When he meets Victor - a wild soul and fellow outsider - his chances of finding love go from bleak to a very uncertain, maybe. Bracing his heart, Jace chases after his desire, hoping for a warm hand to hold his tight.
Something Like Autumn tells the story of Jace's life before the events of Something Like Summer, while also revisiting his time with Benjamin Bentley.

excellent

the third in the series so we know most of the story. In this one we know whhat the end is but we learn a lot about Jase, his past and his reasons for being how he is.. and of course where Samson fits in. as for Benjamin we know what happens to Jase in bens story. then 'what happens after' in Tims story. but we see how very brave he is to do as Jase asks on the end.. this is a very emotional story, Victor being a very sad part when you think of it all and well explained during a visit to military school..
I have already purchased the next book 'spring' but am waiting a little bit before starting to let my thoughts and emotions settle down a bit

Feels like full circle

What about Kevin R. Free’s performance did you like?

He tells the story well. However, some of the voices he uses for the characters do not seem to fit. For example, he reads Tim like a simpleton dimwit and you know when a character is a nasty piece of work because their voices are uber camp and waspish.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. Clear your diary, you wont want to miss a moment of this story.


Any additional comments?

This story is much more than just another look at the events from "Something Like Summer". In fact they are just covered in the final third part of this book.

In this story we meet a young Jace about to make a life changing decision and then watch him grow up to be the man that we (and Ben) fall in love with.

However, for me the best thing about this story is that we see the real Jace and not the perfect person who everyone who meets him seems to think he is. He is flawed and he has doubts and he is human.

Team Tim or Team Jace? I couldn't choose.

All I know is that you need a box of tissues handy as by the end your eyes will not be dry
