There’s nothing worse for a writer than missing a deadline. For Griffin Montgomery, his failure to do what he loves comes at a blow. He didn’t understand how it was affecting his life until his well-meaning family intercedes. His sisters have hired him a new personal assistant and he’s outraged—that is, until he sees who it is.
Autumn Minor is light on her feet and a bare memory for most people she meets. She does her best to blend in everywhere she lives, even if it’s only for a short period of time. Making sure no one truly notices her is the only way she’s survived this long. Only when she meets Griffin and the rest of the Montgomerys, she’s afraid she won’t be able to let go when its time to run.
Though the two begin a tentative but explosive relationship, they know it can’t last forever. Neither of them are made for the long haul when it comes to love and romance. When the demons from Autumn’s past find her and put both their lives at risk, Griffin will stop at nothing to protect her. In the end, though, he’ll be the one who needs a second chance.

Autumn Minor has fears that stem from her past that just won't leave her alone.  She has finally started to relax in Denver, but just when she thinks things could be good, she knows that time is drawing to a close for her.  Her senses are on high alert, but since she agreed to to a job for her closest friends to help out Griffin as his assistant she is determined to finish it first before leaving.

Griffin Montgomery is determined that he doesn't need any help, even though his life at the moment seems to be an utter mess.  His house is disorganized, he is behind on his book, and the worst question that he can't answer seems to be when was the last time he ate, slept, or showered.

This book is a fun read even with the suspense that looms over head for Autumn.  The way that the Montgomery's are such a tight knit family and friends is what makes the story what it is.  The way that they protect each other, but still manage to throw the funny innuendos the will have you laughing is what makes the book so good.

The other great thing is that the romance that is written throughout the entire book will give you that warm and fuzzy feeling that we all want when reading a contemporary romance.  We want the sensual kisses, the light touches, and the whispered moments between the characters, and this book delivers just that.  This is one of those stories that you will find yourself curled up under you favorite blanket, with your favorite drink, enjoying everything take place.

Now, last but not least, I am going to share a couple of my favorite conversation pieces from the book.

"Oh get over yourself writer boy.  I'm not going to look over your shoulder while you try to put words on paper because, hell, I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to writing.  But I can help you with other things.  First you place is a mess. How can you breath in here is beyond me.  I hope you bring your dates to their home or a hotel or something because one look at this house and they'd run screaming.  I don't bring my dates here.  But I'd pay a whole hell of a lot to find out what just went through your mind just then, Fall."

"Fall?  Really?  Are you like twelve?  I thought you were a writer.  Can't you come up with something a bit more clever?"


"So Griffin Montgomery, tell me about yourself."  "I'm a writer."  "Oh my God.  That is... that is so THRILLING to hear.  I mean, you're a writer?  Who knew?" 

What the hell had she been thinking? Autumn didn’t just react when it came to her life. She couldn’t afford to. It might look like she went from job to job, place to place, without second thoughts or a care in her head, but she worked hard at that misconception. She didn’t move without doing as much research as possible so she could make sure she wasn’t followed. Or at least be as sure as she could. She also didn’t take jobs randomly, despite the fact that she had held so many since high school her resume looked as if it had been patchworked from four different people rather than merely one. That was, of course, if she’d actually had a resume…  
Yet when Meghan has approached her with the offhand comment of helping Griffin, she’d said yes. Griffin’s sister had wanted to help her brother but knew she couldn’t do it all. While Autumn was happy Meghan wasn’t trying to take everything on herself, she shouldn’t have said yes to the other woman. 
It made no sense.
Sure she could clean, cook, organize, program and pretty much do most of the things Meghan thought Griffin needed, but she shouldn’t have said yes. The damned man had called her Fall. 
Yeah, he’d rolled his eyes after he’d said it, so at least he hadn’t been too serious. And to be honest, she’d laughed a little at the joke because it was that bad, but still. She shouldn’t be getting closer to the Montgomerys. She should be severing ties so she could pack up and leave as soon as she could. She’d done her damndest over time to make sure no one truly knew who she was. That way, by the time she moved away, people would only remember a faint whisper of her presence. Unlike here, where she’d been given nicknames and worked with the whole family in one way or another. 
The damn Montgomerys sure knew how to wrap a person up in their web of family, connection, and happiness.
It was enough to give a girl on the run an ulcer.
