He's taken the high ground with Jordan Tate, keeping their relationship platonic because Simon is hiding in the town of Battleford, far from Chicago where it all went wrong.

When the family home is burned to the ground, along with the family pet, his sister's fiancee kidnapped and beaten, and his mother assaulted, the family relocates to Battleford. Simon then gives into temptation and seduces Jordan. Worried Williamson will find him and target her next, he breaks things off, leading Jordan to believe he regrets their liaison. Jordan, heartbroken, finds out the truth, and comes up with a plan to keep Simon and deal with Williamson. Now it's up to Simon to accept, or break both their hearts forever. ** A BookStrand Mainstream Romance

After reading Full Tilt, I knew I had to read the second. Though, this one brought on a whole set of other emotions. It was of course a little different, being in the aftermath of losing Jonah. Theo and Kacey have grown together. Being there for each other when they desperately needed it. But each of them made a promise to Jonah in the end. I honestly, feel that Jonah wanted them to find solace in each other. I loved watching Kacey grow. How she really truly found herself in her music. Finally, doing something for herself. Theo I wasn’t sure of, he is good at hiding his emotions. But he truly does care for Kacey and the promise he made to his brother he wanted to keep.  Though, I didn't feel that intense love between the two. Which I understand, their story is different. It was still really well done. It still captivated me till the end. This duet is a great read and I totally recommend it to any romance reader. It shows all the beauty in these raw moments.  Overall, I give this Five Boundless Stars.....Sara

5 BIG STARS LIKE 5 BIG TREASURES OUT OF THE RUINS That’s it. I have no more tissues at home. I’ll only say a few words: Get Full Tilt, read it. Cry. A lot. Then grab All In and just cry again, drown, grieve, heal, stand and love again. But love more, like never, ever before. Because love always wins. Full Tilt couldn’t have a better “book 2”. All In couldn’t have be more perfect than this. I felt it from Book 1, Emma Scott did an amazing job with Jonah, Teddy and Kacey. Beautiful. From the start, and to the End. This Duet was worth each tear of mines. Thank you Emma Scott. From now on, your name is on my Must Read Shelf.

Full Tilt was a piece of art. It was gut-wrenchingly, heartbreakingly, beautiful. All In is its perfect counterpart. The Band-Aid on the wound. The crème brulee at the end of dinner. The H. E. A. If Full Tilt broke you, All In will heal you. As always, Emma Scott’s writing is absolutely beautiful. Lately, I've been DNF’ing more and more books, and that is why. She spoils me with her words. If she wrote a book on The Effects of Watching Paint Dry, I’d pre-order it. One thing I love when it comes to a book series is consistency. All In flows nicely from Full Tilt, even though it is a completely different book with a completely different tone. Both books are bright, colorful, and vibrant—not only in their gorgeous covers, but also on their pages. And just as Las Vegas provided the perfect backdrop for Kacey and Jonah, New Orleans does the same for Kacey and Theo. Its old, deep-south vibe is a nice contrast to the vibrant newness of Las Vegas, yet it somehow maintains a similar feel. My husband took me to NOLA once. “Let me plan the trip,” he said. “You’ll love it,” he said. We went during Mardi Gras and while waiting for a parade to start, he decided to refill our daiquiris. He crossed the street and disappeared into the crowd. THEN the parade started. Just an FYI, nothing good can come from a stranded husband with two daiquiris. My first NOLA experience was reduced to Bourbon Street and our hotel. Thanks to Emma Scott and her uncanny ability to set a scene, I finally feel like I’ve seen a bit of the city. Just yesterday, my husband promised me a do-over. I handed him All In and told him to use it as a travel guide. Aside from one notable absence *deep breath, long swallow* all the characters from Full Tilt resurface in All In as well as the addition of a few more, most notably Yvonne, who had me in hysterics more than once. As far as the MC’s, Kacey is still beautifully flawed, but following Jonah’s death, she’s lost her way again. She’s broken and struggling, desperate to numb her pain—falling victim to old habits that, this time around, really have their claws in her. Enter: Theo. Without his POV in Full Tilt, he came off guarded, protective, and somewhat icy, but within the very first pages of All In, you discover so much more about him. He’s loyal and selfless. Honorable. He keeps his promises. As far as book boyfriends go, he’s perfection. There was so much to love about this book: Kacey’s affinity for eighties movies, Viv’s magic 8-ball, palm reading, beignets, and the steamiest NON-sex scene I’ve ever read. The romance is off the charts swoon-tastic. I grinned. I giggled. At one point I broke into song. All In isn’t dramatic. There’s no unnecessary angst. The relationship isn’t rushed; its progression is natural. It is simply a love story. And I loved every perfect word.
