Review:
I don't even really know what to say. I feel like I have no words. This book was.. it was amazing and I mean that in that sordid way that I love the books that break my heart. Because this one sure did the job. It was so sweet and really heartbreaking but in the most beautiful way. I really loved reading this, this is my favorite kind of book of all time; the ones that touch me in an inexplicable way, that wrench my heart and squeeze and squeeze until my eyes start leaking water. I did a lot of that, specially in the last couple of chapters.
This is the kind of book that stays with you, days, months, maybe even years later. I know it will stay with me. There aren't many books that touch me in the way this one did and I know my mind and heart will remember it.

I won't talk about what happens, I think this should be a book you should go in completely blind, not even reading the blurb, I think it'll be a more special experience and yes probably more heartbreaking but it'll be worth it.


Rate: 5 / 5 stars 

Warning!: For those of you who do want to go in blind, skip the next few paragraphs!

"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.



Title: All in (Full Tilt #2)
Author: Emma Scott
Publication Date: October 11, 2016
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Review:
This is the second book of the Full Tilt duo and it should not be read as a standalone. Do not read it as a standalone, you'll get spoilers and believe me you will not enjoy the book half as much as you should.

The experience of reading this duo is amazing, yes very heartbreaking but so enjoyable and beautiful. Seriously, read Full Tilt and then All In. You won't regret it.
This series will stay with me for a LONG time. My heart still hurts from the first book and reading the second one was not easy, the first few sentences made me cry, actually a lot of moments throughout the book made me cry. But it was beautiful to read Theo and Kacey's journey. It was sad and even frustrating at times but also so sweet and rewarding. I loved the reading experience with this duo, it was the kind of heartbreaking that I love so so so much. It was really special. I love all angsty, heartbreaking books but not all those make me cry. This duo sure had that power and I guess I just connected with it. I need a paper copy of this duo asap!! I only buy my favorites and these ones need to be on my book shelves.

Blurb: 
Reeling from her loss, Kacey Dawson is grieving and heartbroken, her addictive demons hauling her back into the alcohol-soaked abyss she worked so hard to crawl out of. Kacey teeters on the edge of oblivion, and must fight her way through the pain, to build a new life for herself with her music, and somehow fulfill the promise she made to Jonah…one she feels is impossible to keep.

Theo Fletcher has a secret burning in his heart, one that he holds close, while he struggles to keep strong for his family that is falling apart. His mother’s health is fragile and his father’s disapproval is breaking him down. Theo is afraid if he follows his heart, he’ll fail, and not just himself, but his brother who believed in him when no one else did.
Drawn together by their pain, Theo and Kacey slowly build a friendship, re-forge old ties, help each other to heal, and give one another the courage to reach for their dreams. Together, from the depths of grief and guilt, they learn to laugh again, to trust again, and quite possibly find something beautiful and lasting amid the shattered pieces of their broken hearts.
