Falling for Autumn by Heather Topham Wood

Falling For Autumn
Autumn Dorey ran away to college. She left her town behind and the awful rumors that tormented her. She was tired of dealing with what happened in the last few years before she finished high school. Her friends and boyfriend had turned on her and she had become an outcast. However, this girl is determined to reinvent herself and dedicate her school years to study. She especially wants to stay clear from the football gods.

Blake Preston is the football running back star for Cook University. He is not only a football god but he is also the hottest guy that everyone wants. When he meets Autumn he seems to be angry at her but later on he is always wanting to spend more time with her.

It doesn't take long for them to discover they want more than friendship but secrets have a funny way of resurfacing when you least expect it.  The question is can their relationship survive it?

“Things from before that I can’t tell you. I should tell you, but I don’t want it to ruin everything. Because it feels like what we have is fragile and the more you get to know about me, the more likely it will all shatter.”

Autumn is a very interesting character. She has been hurt and bullied to the point of rock bottom. I like that she had an open communication with her parents to what happened to her. Both parents were very supportive of her and her mother's advise at the end really surprised me. It made me like her even more.
Blake was a loyal guy despite having an awful mother. I could see the struggle he faced and even though, I'm not happy he kept the secret for too long, I understood why he was so frightened to reveal it.
I loved when Blake dealt with the high school bullies especially Autumn's ex.  A fist pump was in order.
I'm very happy with the ending and there was no cliffhanger.

“I love you and what we have is stronger than anything I felt before. We have something real and I never want to let you go. I see you smile at me when you wake up in my arms and I want that every day for the rest of our lives. I want to be the kind of man that gives someone as incredible as you a reason to smile.”
