GENRE: Contemporary Romance

LENGTH: 282 pages

FORMAT: Ebook, Paperback







For Autumn Hickman, online dating has been an exercise in nothing more than coffee and failure. There simply isn’t a man on the planet who can compare to her best friend, Trey Wattson. And while Trey is everything Autumn has ever wanted in a partner, she knows the man who loves life’s most beautiful things could never cherish anything as scarred and mangled as her.

Trey Wattson is in love with his best friend, but he can't seem to reach her. She’s guarded, and for good reason, but Trey doesn’t care. He knows Autumn’s soul, and it’s the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen. Desperate to claim Autumn’s heart for his own, Trey conspires with The Wolves to create a fake profile on the dating site Autumn frequents. But the more Autumn trusts Trey’s online persona, the more it becomes clear that Trey is gambling with the very thing he wants most of all.

Return to Tess Thompson’s beloved Cliffside Bay and discover for yourself why true love is built on honesty and trust, and why best friends often make the very best life partners, in this anonymous online romance set in your favorite charming small town.


I have had the pleasure of reading this entire series. Usually, I rush through so as to get my review done. This time I took my time and just enjoyed this story. From the moment Autumn came on the scene, I hoped she got her story. And here we have it. I was so happy when this book came out.

In the previous books, we meet Stone and Kyle. Well, Autumn is their sister, who was in a horrible car accident that left her legs and heart covered in scars. Along with the scars, Autumn and the other Hickman siblings suffer from abandonment issues. When their mom is found to be homeless, they jump in to care for the women who left them many years ago. Autumn's best friend is a friend of her brothers and a guy she adores. She sees him as a friend. Only. Trey has his own demons and issues of abandonment, but maybe they can battle the scars together and find love.

Wow. This book was amazing. My favorite book so far in this series. This book had some major drama, but it was so sweet and well written. By the end, I was in tears. These characters are just loveable. The bonds of family and friendship are so strong in the small town of Cliffside Bay. Id love to see this series made into movies.

Tess Thompson never lets me down. This book was excellent and well written. If you love to read about small towns, love, family, and friendship, please read these books.
