Product description

Product Description

On the discovery of a family secret and the heart-wrenching events that follow, Autumn Chamberlain has lost what little faith she had in those closest to her. Knowing she can never truly live her life if she remains with her family, and with an abundance of guilt laying heavily in her heart, she escapes the lonely world she felt forced to live in and heads to the seaside town of Haywater. The aim, to look for a new beginning, a fresh start. But she has one clear notion – to never love again.

Talented surfer, Zed Maddison, has always worked hard at protecting those closest to him, until the day he fails. Fighting his own demons, Zed flees his close family; unable to face them and the remorse he feels before finally arriving in Haywater.
When their worlds collide, Zed has an unfathomable need to protect Autumn and becomes relentless in his fight, forcing Autumn’s defences to the limit.

Can her secrets remain dead and buried?

Or will a revelation destroy everything?

R. G. Corr is an English author and Autumn's Rise is her first book; she plans on a series - Haywater -with the second book due out later in the year. I really didn't know what to make of this story when I started reading; it had been a long and difficult day, so I very quickly decided that I was better off putting it down and going to sleep. Sleep didn't come so I eventually picked up my tablet and started to read, again. We have a poor little rich girl, Autumn who's running away from the confines of home; the seaside town of Haywater; a sneering young man, presumably wealthy, who condescendingly assures Autumn that she will be back because he made her and she belongs to him! Then she is hurried off to the train by Mary. Who is Mary? Where are the parents?

All too soon it was 6:30am and I was struggling to stay awake, but by the I was so enraptured with the book, I was determined to finish it.

A year passes and slowly Autumn settles into a routine; studying nursing, working at a restaurant, two close true friends in Bea and Jack. One night Zed and Reid come into the restaurant to dine with Dex, the owner and Zed is absolutely mesmerised by the beauty that is Autumn, even recognising the pain and hurt in her eyes. He knows that he has to protect her because he is just as crushed as she with the weight of tragedy. Autumn reacts to Zed as well, but while he embraces the attraction, she tries to force it away: she is utterly convinced that love can never be hers. Zed is Bea's cousin and I was absolutely ready to smack her for her interference and her inability to see beyond her own nose!

Great read
5.0 out of 5 stars I was blown away by this story. It had depth, complex emotional issues and memorable characters - I adored it! 28 March 2017
By JG ~ Jezabell Girl & Friends - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Despite some initial hesitancy at the outset of this book, specifically in the vague way that the story commenced, I found myself quickly emerged within the lives of these endearing characters and their captivating and emotive stories. This is one of those books which slowly reveals its secrets to you with the turn of every page.

From the start, it was unclear why Autumn was leaving her family home and why Brent McCann played a part in her decision. The story then moves on into Auty’s new life living alongside new friends, Jack and Bea, who quickly realise that Auty is holding secrets from her past deep within her. Whilst Auty is happy in her new life, she remains closed off but with the support of those who have come to love her, she is now cherished and protected.

Auty’s life is simple until she sets eyes on mysterious surfer Zed and his friend Reid. Both friends of her boss, the enigmatic duo cause Auty’s protective walls to crumble thus weakening her resolve where men are concerned. Auty sees something in Zed’s eyes that draws her, unexpectedly, to him. He too is broken and is wearing the emotional scars for all to see, if only people took the time to notice, as Auty does. Despite an unfortunate first encounter, it’s not long before they start to see the best in each other.

Zed turns out to be Bea’s cousin and through their mutual connection, Zed and Auty start to be a frequent, but pleasant, presence in each other's lives. Despite Auty’s resistance, and firm no dating rule, Zed is not dissuaded by her rebuttals and slowly but surely lets her into his heart and in doing so places himself firmly in hers.

As the story progresses, more secrets from both Auty and Zed are revealed. There are challenges along the way especially when friends misplace their intentions towards Zed and Auty but with time, and patience, Zed and Auty start to find comfort in each other’s company.

Despite a slow and steady start to this book, once Zed and Reid arrive on the scene and the layers of both Auty and Zed are peeled away, and their mutual pain is revealed, this story held me with an unrelenting grip. The secrets uncovered are hard to digest but cathartic to Zed and Auty as they start open up to one another. The writing style by RG Corr is strong and her storytelling skills have definitely won me over. I can’t wait to read on and to get my hands on Reid’s story.
5.0 out of 5 stars I am not gonna bore you by recapping the story or by posting spoilers because that's not my style but I will however tell you ju 28 April 2017

I have given it 5 "wildcat" stars.


I am not gonna bore you by recapping the story or by posting spoilers because that's not my style but I will however tell you just how much I bloody loved this story!!!

This is my first foray into the R.G Corr's world, filled with love and heartbreak and she has left a lasting impression on me that is likely to last a long time. She is a truly talented writer and I am ashamed to say it has taken me this long to read her work.
She has this way with her words that captivates the mind and heart of the reader, as she pulls you deeper and deeper into this powerful story. Autumn's Rise is seamlessly written, it flowed beautifully and smoothly, making this sweet story easy to read and even easier to love. She had me enthralled from beginning to end and I was absolutely captivated by lovable characters that you instantly fall in love with and was completely swept away by the words.

This was a fantastic debut from R.G Corr that gave me all of the feels - no emotion was left untouched and at one point had me reaching for the tissues. I can not wait to read more!!!

One click this story now, you won't be sorry!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 29 February 2016
By Books Laid Bare - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
There are debut novels and then there is a statement of intent and with this RG Corr’s first foray, it is very clear that this author is marking her territory because there is no going back from this, this author was born to write of that I have no doubt.
There was no emotion left untouched by the time I have finished the book and it wasn’t just a read it was an experience.
So what brought all this about, well from the mind of an exceptional individual came the strength that was Autumn, she had been through more in her short life than many would experience in twenty but she had weathered it all and was still standing tall and every time I thought she had turned a corner, I soon learnt that the author wasn’t quite finished illuminating her plight. I honestly thought that there couldn’t have been anything left for her to endure but clearly I was mistaken.
But this woman’s spirit knows no limits, or at least it appears not anyway because not matter how much is heaped upon her she keeps her head held high, no it is not easy but she seems to have a demeanour that refuses to be beaten.
She was more upbeat and alive through it all than I think I would have ever been able to manage and for that alone I think she truly won her place in my heart. She was a fighter and I had my fingers crossed that her fight was about to come to an end.
So day to day life is what it is for Autumn, she isn’t about to set the world alight so to speak but when she meets Zed, her mundane, her normality is blown out of the water. This guy is everything that she doesn’t actually want but so desperately needs, he is a force of nature that she is ill equipped to handle but can she find her feet and welcome this handsome man into her life?
Zed, adds a whole new dynamic to not only the story but to Autumn life, he sizzles off the page and as much as I was dubious about whether he was going to be a positive in Autumns life, I soon learnt that when it comes to wants and needs, I had no need to worry, R G Corr had it well and truly covered.

Zed had issues of his own to overcome but his connection with Autumn was fantastic, the verbal sparring was both light-hearted and enchanting. I actually liked the way the author was able to infuse an element of humour through much of the story and by introducing a series of secondary characters that provided a balance to the seriousness that had previously shrouded the main characters.
There were a number of secrets layered deep within the characters that the author took her time to reveal and while the good old “bad boy meets good girl” scenario may have initially sprung to mind, it couldn’t actually have been further from the truth. This was about meeting the person that is on the earth to complete your story, of knowing that there are times when you have no say in what life holds in store for you and learning to accept that where you are and where you need to be may not always been in your own hands to decide.
This was an honest book, it laid its story out for all to see and the author seems to have stayed completely true to the characters, they drove this story and while it would have been easy to take them in a completely different path, I admire the fact that the author listened to their voices and to the fact that they refused to be contained.
An all too often complement is that a book was beautifully written and at times it can be stated as almost an off the cuff platitude but with this, it I say it with absolute reverence…this book was beautifully written.
I finished the book, refreshed, delighted that I now have a new exciting author to add to my reading list and one that I can recommend with absolute abandon.
I also finished the book very much looking forward to what might just come next…. surely there has to be more, please!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Every Emotion Possible 19 March 2016
By Julianne Knutson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
R.G. Corr is a new author to me and I have to say that I fell in love with “Autumn’s Rise” right after reading the prologue. I knew that this story would get me emotional and I certainly was. 

Autumn Chamberlain is a young woman who’s gone through so much pain and sorrow in her life that she only has one true friend, her parents house keeper Mary. Through all her pain she packs up what she needs with Mary’s help and starts a new life. In a short year Autumn has done a 180 in changing her life and has a fierce group of friends. 

Autumn is still working through her sorrow’s when she meeds Zed a man that has even more baggage than she does. This man has closed himself from the outside world by putting all his focus on work, surfing and occasionally girls.

Can these two damage souls be able to heal one another or are the wound too deep?

Wow! This story is emotionally gripping that I felt like curling into my covers and having a good ugly cry. Autumn and Zed have a lot of deep wounds that I wasn’t entirely sure these two would be able to heal one another, but because of their wounds I think they were able to get some baggage off their chest without feeling judged. 

I love both Zed and Autumn, but during certain parts in the story I really wanted to just slap Zed silly to knock some sense into him, but have no fear because he quickly shaped up.

R.G. Corr is a brilliant author because this story took me on a rollercoaster I wasn’t prepared for. Every kind of emotion imaginable was expressed through this story and I loved it. I have been through the ringer and I can’t wait to see what else this author has in store! 

Highly Recommend if you want an ugly cry with redeeming and love quality.
