SPOILERS FOR FULL TILT....
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.
PLEASE NOTE, this novel is NOT a standalone. It is highly recommended one read Full Tilt first to get the entire arc of the story and to avoid spoilers.
I needed this book like air.
When I finished book one I had to go straight to book 2, just knowing there was more and a happily ever after to chase had me jumping straight in.
Finishing book one I was heartbroken. The words were beautiful, the story was beautiful even pondering on what Jonah had done with his glass blowing making all those works of art breathing into them so he left a legacy, so he lived on I cannot think of the words to describe those moments in that story and Emma Scott wrote about these characters without getting the wobbly lip, seriously this is amazing.
Book two is Kacey and Theo after Jonah's death, how life goes on and how they keep to the dying promises Jonah asked of them with his final words.
The whole duet is nothing short of amazing, an amazing journey of love, healing, hopes, dreams and happily ever afters.
I'm not a reader who normally jumps to a book once I know it's a tear-jerkier but if I had let that put me off as I stated in my review of Full Tilt then I would of robbed myself on an amazing and powerful love story.
I recommend it especially on a lazy day where you can lock your self away and absorbe.
Told In first persons dual pov's and leads to a hea.
