Wow, Full Tilt is an emotional, gripping and intoxicating read! This was very different from what I usually read, but I have no regrets! It grabbed at my heartstrings and made me feel every emotion. Full Tilt is a beautifully written, poignant love story that will stay in your thoughts long after you have finished reading it. It is filled with heartbreak, romance and suspense while delivering a strong message about finding yourself and living life to the full. I loved every minute of this book and became completely involved in Jonah and Kacey’s world. They are both amazing strong characters. Kacey isn't perfect: she is broken, lost and on a path of self-destruction. Her past holds her hostage but she is trying to break free and find herself. Jonah is nothing like the other men in Kacey’s life, though is the perfect man to show her just how beautiful and special she is. This is definitely a book to put on your "To Be Read" shelf, and I look forward to reading more from Ms Scott. If you love amazing characters with heart-warming romance that makes you feel every emotion, then this is one for you. Colleen Hoover and Amy Harmon fans will love this book!

There really is something special about Full Tilt. I've never read an Emma Scott book before but I can guarantee it won't be my last. Jonah and Kacey come from two different worlds. One that is all chaos and the other is a strict schedule. But they find each other and find that they have some things in common.   What's going on with Jonah, is up front to the reader. All the heartache and limited time. I felt for Jonah, it's one thing to know that your time is limited. It's another, just to completely do it on your own. Wanting desperately, to leave some kind of mark on the world. Kacey came to his life unexpected, but I think it was destined to be that way. I know this is fiction but it felt so real. Those moments that you don't want to let go. The hope that you'll have more time. I can't imagine, knowing that you'll only live so long. So many take that for granted. Tomorrow is never a guarantee. The character development was on another level for me. The chemistry was so much there. But the boundaries were drawn early on. Then again, you can't control the yearn you feel to be close to someone. To not be alone, to really feel and place those memories away for safekeeping.  There's a beauty in art, which is at the forefront for both of them. This a breathtaking, beautiful and amazing love story. It brought me to tears. Overall, I give this Five (huge) Boundless Stars. It deserves nothing less....Lissa

If I could give this book all the stars in the universe, I’m not sure that would be enough. I had initially decided to pass this book over because, between the blurb and the reviews that I read, it seemed to be a definite tear-jerker and well, I’m a wimp and don’t like to be sad . That just wasn’t in the cards for me because this book just kept popping up everywhere and I finally decided it was time to suck it up; I had a feeling I was missing something great. “Great” isn’t even remotely the right work for this book! Amazing, beautiful, heartbreaking, heartwarming are just a few to get you started. This is a story of 2 people’s life-changing journey from friendship to a love so deep it makes you ache. Kacey and Jonah have their paths all planned out but Kacey is struggling with hers. Jonah doesn’t have time for distractions but soon realizes that the connection that he and Kacey have is undeniable. They soon form a bond that leads them each down a path of self-discovery and they both soon realize that the plans they have aren’t really what they want out of life. They could have so much more together. This is one of the most emotional books I’ve ever read. I don’t think I’ve cried over a book as much as I did this one. They were both sad and happy tears because this book will definitely run you through the gamut of emotions. I felt everything…the loneliness, the fear, the sadness, the happiness…everything that these characters felt. It grabbed hold of me and just wouldn’t let go! Make each day count!

“We might not have months or years, but we have moments. Thousands upon thousands of them. Let’s take each moment, seize it and wring it dry.” What can I say but holy cow this was one amazingly beautiful book. I started and didn't finish until 3 am. I was basically weeping when I finished. Even though I knew what was going to happen, it didn't soften the emotional blow. This was more than just a love story. It was an emotional journey into the hearts and souls of the characters. It reminds us of how every fragile our lives are and how each moment is to be treasured. Life is precious and meant to be lived to the fullest. I loved that Kacey struggled but ultimately stood strong in the end...such a testament of the power of love over circumstances. How Jonah saved her from herself and her circumstances...was gripping. The symbolism, friendships, love, heart wrenchingly real situations, family unity...basically this is a book that will touch your soul and never let go. Beautifully written ... this is a top favorite of 2016 for me. A must read if you want a story that is beyond fiction and filled with emotion. I cannot wait for the next book and get Theo's and Kacey's story.

I'm struck a bit speechless as I try to describe this story and what I thought. Jonah has a medical condition which causes him to live his life more reserved and on a rigid schedule. He is creative and talented, and doesn't want any distractions. Kacey winds up being one heck of a distraction. She is miserable and drowns herself in booze and meaningless sex... Until her white knight helps give her perspective. This made me tear up and then smile through the tears. It made me laugh. The way Jonah and Kacey's love story blossomed over the pages was nothing short of wonderful. Jonah, this sweet, sexy, and downright adorable hero who is as stubborn as he is kind. And Kacey, who grows leaps and bounds from beginning to end. Blended in well with the more serious side of this is fantastic humor and blistering sexual chemistry, which just pulls everything together. There is a lot of heart, with wonderful supporting characters, including Theo, Jonah's brother, who round it all out! This is a bittersweet story that is so touching you too might find yourself a bit speechless after finishing. This is also a 2-parter, though there isn't a cliffhanger ending so you could stop at this one... Or you can continue on to Theo's story. “Look at my talented boyfriend.” “Boyfriend, huh?” He wrapped his arms around my waist. “I…” He glanced away with a short laugh. “I was going to make a joke right there, but I like boyfriend too much.”

Given the synopsis, I knew I would be sad but I hoped with knowing what I was getting into that I would be able to handle it. It’s so hard to not fall in love with Jonah and Kacey. They both kind of save each other and show the other how to live. Due to Jonah’s strict regimen, Kacey starts to adapt to it and starts to become healthier herself. Due to Kacey’s wild nature and need to be close to those around her, Jonah finds himself opening up to her and starting to see his remaining days in a new light. Seeing these two blossom together was a very heartwarming ride. I thought this would be a romance between a normal guy and a rock star. However, Kacey’s band is just starting out. To top it off, she quits the band relatively early in the book in order to stay back and live in Las Vegas and be near Jonah. So, the story doesn’t really revolve around a rock goddess and her man. Instead, it really sort of revolves around Jonah and the clock that’s always ticking away in the background. We watch as they become friends, hang out and watch TV, go on camping trips, and then we get to watch as they fall in love. I’m kind of glad it wasn’t a romance where Kacey was always gone. That would have been way too depressing. The funny thing about me reading and enjoying Full Tilt is that I hate sad books. I like to read to escape reality and in all honesty, there’s enough sad things going on in the real-world. However, I’m glad I read this story. I knew what I was getting into when I started reading and just like Kacey, when the time came to say goodbye, no matter how prepared you thought you were, it still gutted you. I have mixed feelings about the second book where we catch up with Kacey and watch her heal from the loss. I feel like this book was emotional enough but at the same time it was bitter-sweet. These two characters saved each other from wasting their lives away. I don’t know if the second half of the story can live up to the first and I’m honestly not sure I plan to read it. I thought the story, while extremely sad, was perfect the way it was.

5 WREAKING/POWERFUL STARS Wow. This is my first Emma Scott book. What can I say after this? I’m at loss of words. How can I feel emotionally wrecked and yet thinking this reading was pure bliss??? How can I literally be a grown up reader crying like a baby because of a book? I don’t want to spoil the story, so I’ll just say this is probably the BEST BOOK I’VE READ THIS YEAR, and possibly in the last years. And this book it isn’t even wrote in my native language, and that’s saying a lot about E. Scott’s writing, the way her story, her characters, hers words touched my soul… Really, that sounds cliché and corny but I have no words. How can love and loss, hope and fatality can be told in such a wonderful, poetic and wrecking way? Thank you so much, Emma Scott, for this book. I wanted to wait before opening All In, but I just can’t. I NEED to follow Kacey in her journey, through the healing. I need to see that Jonah’s death is the start of something as beautiful as their love story and tragedy. And somehow, I KNOW I’ll love the second book. Seriously, even if you are a Romance geek like me, who loves books as a way to escape, you must read this, even if it tears your heart. I am so glad Emma Scott listened to her gut and told this story, because, it NEEDED to be told. Thank you.
