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!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 29 February 2016
By Books Laid Bare & Books Laid Bare Boys - 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!!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Triumph over a devastating childhood, close, loyal friendships and ultimately a sweet love story. 1 June 2016
By Patricia - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a nice debut book by R G Corrr. The story has good depth, with Autumn, the lead character attempting to rise from the ashes of a heartrending life up to this point.

I found the story to be a little slow to start but it did pick up the pace somewhat, eventually. The writer's style is a little too 'wordy' for me, which dragged out some scenes and lost my attention a little, which added to the slow pace of the story.

Having been neglected by her rich, socially accepted parents and then betrayed by a past love, she has fled to another town to train as a nurse and become the person she really wants to be. Her strength of character is so admired by her new friends who know nothing about her past but accept her into their circle. They all realize that Autumn is hiding some great devastating secret and so pull together to show how much they care for her.

This is a story of strength of character, bravery and deep, loyal friendships as well as a sweet love story that will have your heart melting. Zed, is a tough individual who speaks more with his fists than his mouth but is totally bowled over by August from their first meeting.

All secondary characters are well fleshed out making it easy to like this group of friends as if they were your own.

Overall I did enjoy the book and as a first in a series, although a complete stand alone story, it is a good start for the writer to develop the other characters' lives and relationships.

I received an ARC for my honest review.

In this book we meet Autumn Chamberlain a girl with so much hurt and sorrow in her life. Autumn has only one true friend, her parents house keeper Mary. Autumn packs up her life and moves away with the help of Mary and in just one short year she dramatically changes her life for the better. She now has true friends. Bea, Jack and Dex are absolutely the best people this broken girl could have come across. She meets Zed who also has a hidden sadness. Their paths collide but can a broken woman and a self confessed player really ever work? You'll have to read to find out! Zed's best friend Reid is the comedian there's plenty of laughs to be had from this man! There's definitely some secrets still to be uncovered where Reid and Bea are concerned.

I loved Autumns Rise, and reading it I would never have guessed that this is a debut. The writing is superb and I was totally sucked into the story. I just wanted to give both Autumn and Zed a huge hug. It's a heartbreaking story but also a story of hope. This book brought so many emotions out of me and I was fairly gutted when it ended. I can't wait for Reid's story hopefully we will finally find more about him and Bea. Five stars from me!

Review for R C Corr
Reviewed by Elita for Triple B' Book blog

Given ARC for an honest review.
This is the first novel for this author
To be honest straight up it took a while to get in to this novel I found it hard to begin with but it did grow on me and I started to enjoy it more as I got in to it.
Our 2 main characters are Dex and Autumn who have both gone through a traumatic event in there life.
They cross paths in a bar both feel a spark but neither will admit it, soon they both come to a crossroad where feelings come to a head and can not be pushed back anymore.
This book even though it was slow to start for me was a great first novel and I look forward to the continuing storyline in his next novel.
4 stars for me
