Autumn and Summer is about two best friends who embark on a dating experiment. Each allowing the other to set them up on ten completely blind dates, their thoughts on dating and love are challenged.

About the Book

Autumn and Summer (Danielle Allen)
Click to Read an Excerpt
Sexy, successful and stylish, Autumn Jones believes in love. She believes in the all-consuming, mind blowing enormity of love. She believes in the euphoric state of loving and being loved. She believes in it because she’s had it once. And when it was lost, she was devastated, but she never stopped believing in the existence of love. Unwilling to settle, she learned from the past and moved on with the expectation that she’ll love again.

Beautiful, talented, and slightly jaded, Summer Wilson believes in sex. She believes in the all-consuming, mind blowing enormity of good sex. She believes that love exists, but Prince Charming does not. At least, not for her. She’s seen the downside of love—insanity, heartbreak, infidelity, divorce—and she dates with the expectation that she won’t ever subject herself to that type of vulnerability. Instead, she chooses to love her family, her friends, and her work. And although she enjoys the company of men, her heart is hers and hers alone.

Relinquishing control of who they will date, their thoughts on dating and love are challenged and changed for better and for worse. Unfortunately, expecting the unexpected doesn’t prepare them for what the dating world has in store.

The Book is intended for a mature audience (18+).
