REVIEW – FULL TILT BY EMMA SCOTT
Tears a million tears are streaming down my face. What I just read is a love story so beautiful so tragic my heart is full of love yet completely broken at the same time.
Kacey Dawson, up and coming Rock star whose life is spiralling out of control. She’s a lost and numbing everything by drowning herself in booze until she can’t remember.
Jonah Fletcher he’s determined his mind set, he has a deadline he needs to stay on track. He needs to stick to the “schedule”
Both characters seemed to fit each other perfectly to me. It was almost like they were meant to meet, to “save” each other. It’s a heart warming read and put a smile on my face watching these two fall for each other. But Jonah has “plan” an “endgame” so to speak and when that is revealed it was like someone slowly chipping away at my heart.
As I read the book I could feel those tears building up inside. I refused to let them come clinging onto what had to be hope for a different outcome but knowing in my heart that the one I didn’t want was the one that was going to happen. So I absorbed every beautiful moment in this book. Committed the words to memory because I knew that I would come undone at the end.
I held on for sooo damn long and at 97% the damn burst.
“I kissed Jonah Fletcher with all of my heart, and with every piece of my soul that would love him forever.”
This book was breathtakingly beautiful and completely emotional !!! A definite five star read for me and one that I would recommend to everyone.
“I would love you forever, if I only had the chance…”
Kacey Dawson has always lived life on the edge–impulsively, sometimes recklessly. And now, as lead guitarist for a hot up-and-coming band, she is poised at the brink of fame and fortune. But she is torn between wanting to be a serious musician, and the demons that lure her down the glittering, but alcohol-soaked path of rock stardom. A wrecked concert in Las Vegas threatens to ruin her career entirely. She wakes up with the hangover from hell and no memory of the night before, or how she ended up on her limo driver’s couch…
Jonah Fletcher is running out of time. He knows his situation is hopeless, and he’s vowed to make the most of the handful of months he has left to him. His plans include seeing the opening of his glass installation at a prestigious art gallery…they do not include falling in love with a wild, tempestuous rock musician who wound up passed out on his couch.
Jonah sees that Kacey is on a path to self-destruction. He lets her crash with him for a few days to dry out and get her head on straight. But neither of them expected the deep connection they felt, or how that connection could grow so fast from friendship into something more. Something deep and pure and life-changing…something as fragile as glass, that they both know will shatter in the end no matter how hard they try to hold on to it.
Full Tilt is a story about what it means to love with your whole heart, to sacrifice, to experience terrible grief and soaring joy. To live life with all its beauty, and all its pain, and in the end to be able to smile through tears and know you wouldn’t have changed a thing.
