Review Tour: Austin by S.L. Scott
1 Woman 2 Endings – You Choose – Team Dylan or Team
Austin. Sept 29 read one or both to see how it all plays out.
Four years ago, I was tempted with money, prestige, and power by a woman who offered to give me the world. That lifestyle came with a price. I had to leave the love of my life—the one person who had already given me everything I would ever need.
Today I watch Jules Weston in another man's arms. Wanting... needing her back in my life again. But there are obstacles that keep us apart. Her boyfriend. Her best friend. Her anger that has raged inside her over the years.
Despite those, I've returned to take back what's mine. The one thing I regret leaving behind—her heart.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Wow, such a quick and wildly beautiful chaos.
I just sped through this. Considerably better, but still on the same level as Dylan.
Team Austin....not particularly. I'd prefer to be Switzerland, or Team Brandon!!.
This story had the moving-forward, move-on, the-past-is-the-past kind of vibe.
This was written better, had better scenes, less cheesy dialogue, still somewhat the same events as Dylan, although not quite. The story's atmosphere was way lighter and uplifting even though it was shorter than Dylan. Not really much background to reminisce in either. I found that a bit depraving 'cause Dylan had a whole bunch of the past in the present. It was mentioned, but less was more in this case.
The way Austin and Jules had sex seemed way hotter too, so I consider that a plus. Brandon hardly made an appearance this time. I felt really bad for Dylan in here. I found it weird not being sorry for Austin back in Dylan, but having now read this, I thought it served him right.
I found the issues between Austin and Jules very entertaining, unlike the repetitive and past problems that just would not go away. The things Austin did or didn't do made me just want to smack him. Now after reading both, I wish Brandon was an option. He was so sweet and cool and way better than Dylan or Austin.
In the end, it was a semi-HEA, I think. Dylan is still who Jules thinks about from time to time,but not in the forefront of her mind.
Overall, I liked this quick read. Had an interesting experience, compared to Dylan.

We shared a love that regulated every heartbeat and every breath we took. It was all
encompassing. I thought our love could withstand time and anything thrown our way.
I was wrong. So wrong.
I used to be happy. I used to be Juliette Weston when Dylan Somers filled my life
with promises of love and a happy ever after. But when he took my heart and broke it
into a million pieces, I became someone else entirely. In one afternoon, I lost my soul
mate. I lost everything I knew myself to be.
Three years later, the man who destroyed me is back.
To assuage his guilt? To finish the job? It doesn’t matter... I won’t let him this time. I’m stronger. I’ve moved on. He won’t affect me.
This is a story of love and betrayal. Pain and loss. Happiness and fate. It’s about
finding your true destiny.
This is our story.
