Full Tilt by Emma Scott
“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.
***FIRST BOOK IN A TWO PART DUET***
With All In already released, I had an idea how this story would play out. I knew this would be hard to read, but at the same time sooooo many of my friends loved Kacey and Jonah, I had to dive in.
I braced myself.
I still cried.
Full Tilt is a beautiful story of reclaiming your life, no matter what the past or future hold. The time we get is precious and a true gift that we must open ourselves up to possibilities, even if they hurt.
Kacey and Jonah’s story left me breathless, hopeful, and a sobbing mess. I loved every stinkin’ second. I will say, having an inkling of what was to come had it easier to deal with, but it also made parts of story make sense before they probably should. So don’t go see what All In is about, you’ll thank me. Just jump feet first and live out this wonderful book.
