Rocking Autumn (Homecoming #1) by Alyne Hart


I love cupcakes. I love hot men. I love complicated love. And I love sassy broads. This story has all of them and I just loved it. The characters are so real and it was fun to watch them arc as the story developed. I didn’t get much done while I was reading this because I HAD to finish it. I fell hard for Jax and AJ. I couldn’t help but put my big mamma hat on and take care of both of them. I think this is a testament to how well-written this book was. The best part of this story was the dialog. I think it is easy for authors to create dialog that sounds the same no matter which character is speaking. But I think the dialog was funny and really solidified my love for the characters. This is the second book of hers that I’ve read and I can’t wait to read the next one.



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 book 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 cliffhanger. Please also note, this is a long distance relationship where the couple is together, but separate half of the time.


Hello, I’m Alyne Hart. A contemporary romance author living in the state of Washington with my two children. I’m a romance junkie, happy ending addict, cat collector and wine lover.

I began my story-telling journey first with my dolls, then it progressed to paper. I have a deep love for anything romantic, and I’m a believer that in love anything is possible.

I write (mostly) strong, witty and intelligent women who love fiercely. And strong, sexy, intelligent men – alpha heroes with a heart of gold. Then I add in my own little fantasy – they can all cook.

Most of my stories involve people with problems bigger than just trying to find love. I like making peace with the past, re-kindling old flames and healing old wounds. I love small towns, second chances, cowboys, rock stars, and men in uniform.

  1. I love books that are more dialogue focused! Love your intro sentences they really set the tone for the rest of your review. I may need to check this one out when I need a romance to lighten my reading mood.
