Emma Scott has done it again. She’s written a story that I could not put down. I loved every beautiful, heart wrenching moment of it. Some people may consider a story like this sad, without the traditional ‘happily ever after’ that most romance stories aim for. But for me it WAS a HEA story. The characters of Jonah and Kacey are thrown together in unusual circumstances. It’s no secret that Jonah’s character is dealing with health issues; you get that much from the synopsis.
Emma has a way of writing stories that speak to me on some level, and Full Tilt is no different. Jonah and Kacey’s short-lived relationship is so beautiful that I felt envious of their love; scared I’ll never find something that wonderful in my own life. These characters are so real. So perfectly flawed. Their story is as beautiful as it is tragic. It’s worth every moment spent reading it, too! Because that’s life. It’s not rainbows and unicorns. It’s ugly, and for one reason or another things don’t always go the way you planned. Dreams are often never materialized. People get left behind. Circumstances change. Opportunities derail you and toss you on a different track. Life goes on for some, but not for others.
Read this book. Read it with a box of tissues at hand. Read it knowing that life isn’t perfect, but for all it’s imperfections life is still beautiful even when death is around the corner. *****Five universal stars*****
