Summer Break: A Joe Football Novella by Autumn Sand – Review by Jana Teppih

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summer Break: A Joe Football Novella is a standalone by Autumn Sand and it is part of her college romance series of Joe Football. It was such a fun to meet up with Favor, Brice, Jana, Wayne and Cal again and be part of their road trip to New York.
I have read more or less everything that Autumn has written and I think it does not matter whether she writes for us grown-ups or for young adults, she hits the spot every time! Even when the story seems so straight forward on the surface, she manages to throw in a curveball and that is also the case with this novella … at times love is just not enough and secrets do have power to tear friends apart!
I am looking forward to whatever comes next in the Joe Football series and I am keeping my fingers crossed that Autumn gives us …

Summer Break (A Joe Football Novella) by author Autumn Sand follows the events of Joe Football showing what the group is up to during their summer break. Brice, Favor, Wayne, Jana and Cal are on their way to NYC to spend the summer with their friend Egon and his band. While there they will question relationships, love and life. Choices will be made, secrets found out and friendships tested before the end of the summer. What will become of this group of friends?
It has been a while since I read Joe Football and you really need to read that before taking on Summer Break. Once I started Summer Break though, it all started coming back to me and I enjoyed seeing what happens with this core group of friends. I can’t wait to see what comes next for Brice and Favor as well as Jana and Wayne!

Summer Break by Autumn Sand is a great Novella. This series should be read in order to get the full story of what is going on. This is a continuation of Favor and Brice. It’s a couple I have grown to love. They have not had an easy time but any obstacles have brought them closer together with a stronger bond.
While on summer break they find out some information that can tear their group of close knit friends apart. I’m dying right now worrying about what will happen.
I have been a huge fan of this author since the first book I’ve read of hers. This series is a bit different from what I’ve read of hers but, I love it and cannot wait to see what happens next.

Summer Break: A Joe Football Novella by Autumn Sand reunites us with Brice and Favor from “Joe Football”. I enjoyed the first book- so catching up with Brice and Favor for this story was an added bonus.
It could be read as a standalone, but I really recommend reading Joe Football before beginning this book- as there is a lot of backstory and other important information that is worth knowing in order to enhance your reading experience of this book.
This is a short story, with a fast pace- which makes it a very quick and easy read. Though it may be small in size, there is nothing lacking about the story, or content- there was a lot packed into a small space and it felt like a much longer story (in a good way).
Brice and Favor have been through so much, and are taking a much needed break. We follow along as these two travel to New York with their friend Egon, who is playing in a band. But just because they are off to have fun doesn’t mean it will all be smooth sailing for them.
Looking forward to more from Ms. Sand.

Thank you, Autumn Sand!

Summer Break by Autumn Sand a super five-star read. This is a novella in the Joe Football series, it could be read as stand-alone but I would recommend you read Joe Football first, to get the most out of the story, or else you would want to go back and read it and you would have major spoilers. Favor, Favor, Favor what are we to do with you, you break my heart every time. (not just because she gets to snuggle up next to Brice at night) These characters will make you care about them even in such a short amount of pages, you would be sorry to miss this novella as it does a great job of bringing a great and complex story together in a short amount of pages and still making it hookable.

Summer Break by Autumn Sand is a Joe Football Novella. This book is a standalone novella. If you want more backstory on Brice and Favor, I suggest reading Joe Football first. You won’t miss anything if you don’t though.

Brice and Favor’s friend Egon is in New York City recording an album with his band. Favor decided that it would be a great idea for their whole group to spend the summer in New York City together and have some fun! What does the summer hold for Brice and Favor? What about the rest of the group? One things for sure, they will make some memories.

This was such a good book to read. It was a quick read but didn’t make you feel like it was missing anything. I really enjoyed this book!

Summer Break is a novella which is part of the Joe Football series. Although part of this series it can be read as a novella. I have read a lot of Autumn Sand’s work but had not read Brice and Favor’s story, which I now need to remedy, but the author does a great job in filling in any necessary info needed to understand what’s going on.
I really loved this novella. Brice & Favor and the group of friends they are on their break with seem like a great bunch of people with so many stories to be told. I really want to know what’s going to happen with Jana and Wayne. There is definitely a great story to be told and I’m sure Autumn Sand will do a fantastic job.
Every book of her I’ve read has fantastic characters and also storylines that really grasp you and leave you unable to put the book down and this novella was no different. She really does know how to bring great characters to life and give them a damn good story to hook the reader.
I loved this novella and really must go and read Brice and Favor’s story as, judging by the little snippets of their past we are given, it looks like one hell of a story.

What’s a road trip without a few bumps? Especially with 5 people in the same car! This is a fun, quick, sweet read about Brice and Favor and their friends, with an emphasis on their friendships. Brice and Favor are still hot and heavy starting in chapter 1 but the rest of the story is mostly about relationship changes and communication.

I suggest reading Joe Football as you will understand these characters a little bit more. Things happened in that story that aren’t quite explained in this novella.

Looking forward to what comes next since Autumn Sand ending this story so dramatically!

Summmer Break: A Joe Football Novella by Autumn Sand. Oh I can’t even begin to explain how excited I was to be back with this amazing couple I met a while back. You can read this as a stand-alone but I will recommend the Joe football story as it’s just as amazing and introduces Most the characters. Brice and Favor just hold a piece of my heart and I was glad to be reading about them again along with their friends. Once again this author brings romance to a new level and takes readers on an adventure that won’t be forgotten with characters that steal your heart. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. It may be a novella but it still packed full with everything you’d want in a story. Five stars all the way!

Let me start by saying that It’s been a while since I read Joe Football (book 1). I reread my review and went wow….I really loved that book. Once I delved into this one it all came back. The characters, the story…it’s like I never left. This one is just as engaging and thought provoking. My only wish was that it’s a full fledged story. Yes I am going to use the dreaded word of cliffhanger. I am not a fan of them.

Anyway we get to hang out with Brice, Favor and the crew for a bit in the summer. It’s nice to see Egon playing and being so musicianish. Even Wayne is there hoping for something with Jana. Cal and his dance skills make their debut as well. Brice and Favor are still making google-oogly eyes at each other.

Another good story from Autumn Sand. I look forward to more.
