"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.


Teri Lyn's thoughts: **Full Tilt generously provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**

The beauty of this story cannot be measured by words. Within the pages of Full Tilt lies an incredible experience. A emotional treasure for romance readers. Packed full of charm and armed with love, Emma Scott brilliantly delivers an epic love story, an epic story for the ages. 

I cannot review this book in a proper way it's just not fair for a reader to be spoiled. Only by sharing my feelings having finished it can I try to express how it's effected me. As I type through my tears I'm smiling remembering moments my smile growing as look through highlights of this authors poignant prose. A maelstrom of feelings hits you as you read. Hope, helplessness, courage, desperation. Most of all, it's packed full of love. The love of family. The love of friends. And the love for your one true person. The development of the characters and relationships each and every one affecting your basest emotions. 

There's distinct grace, humility, and peace within the pages of this story. As you read you become more increasingly aware of the events transpiring. And as much as the antonym to peace terrifies you creeping around the edges you're just somehow so fulfilled. So buoyant with love. So understanding. So accepting. You want to be this person Scott's heroine represents. You want to feel the warmth radiating from her hero in your own life. You want to encapsulate all the beautifully sculpted emotions swirling between them, between all the characters. 

While I realize this non review is quite vague once you read this story hopefully you won't think it's so vague anymore. Because you'll get it and you'll relish in the reading experience Emma Scott gifted to you. You'll revel in the beauty of her consuming words and her gorgeous story telling. 

I implore romance readers to read this book. I implore everyone to read this book as it's so much bigger than romance, so much bigger than ourselves. Full Tilt lifts readers up while conversely ringing their emotions dry. It's an amazing, powerful read and I feel so grateful for this gift of a story that will stay with me forever. 

Bravo, Emma Scott.
