Back Cover Summary

I fell for Connor Drake. I didn’t want to; I fought against it, but I fell in love with him anyway. With his words. With his poetry. With him. The gentleness and beauty of his soul that speaks directly to mine. He writes as if he can feel my heart, hear its cadence and compose the exact right lyrics to accompany every beat and flow.

I’m in love with Connor… so why do I feel an inexplicable pull to his best friend, Weston? Grouchy, sullen, brooding Weston Turner, who could cut you down with a look. Fiercely intelligent with a razor sharp wit and acid tongue, he’s the exact opposite of Connor in every way, and yet there’s electricity in the air between us. The thorny barbs Weston wraps around himself can’t keep me away.

But the more time I spend with these men, the more tangled and confused my emotions become. When they both sign up for the Army Reserves during a time of increasing strife in the Middle East, I fear I’ll never unravel my own heart that sometimes feels as if it will tear straight down the middle… for both of them.


I bought this book about a year ago. It was an autumn day, and it was raining very heavily. I had a lesson in the late afternoon. I left the house too early and had a lot of spare time before the lesson started. So I thought I'd go to the library and look some books. I don't know why, but as soon as I saw Emma Scott's book, I had a desire to buy it.

I can say that I read this book in one breath. I liked it very much. The story is very beautiful, but it is frustrating. Yes, exactly. All the time I wondered... but why ?????? Please no! I couldn‘t stand Connor's behavior at certain times. But Weston also annoys me in many moments. Sometimes I would like to slap him and say wake up!!! You're ruining your life. I don't know, but in my opinion, Connor didn‘t really love Autumn.

Shall we talk about the name Autumn? I really like it 🙂 She is a very romantic character, but I must say also a little blind. 😑 She lives in a world of her, inside her own bubble. The writing style was great, but the story drove me crazy. Very strangled, and it gave me a lot of emotions. I was angry and didn‘t understand why the story had to go just like that. Maybe that's why I liked it hahaha

I will not write anything else about this book. I can only recommend reading it and of course "Light up the sky". The second book will surprise you and give you many other emotions. Emotions that you will not easily forget. This is not only a love story, but also a story about friendship. A very strong and bonded friendship, like a brotherhood. I hope I have piqued your curiosity about this book.

Thank you for reading.
