Review: 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.


Wow! This book was intense.

This book starts off with Kacey Dawson. She’s living it up as a rock star. Lead guitarist and the fan favorite of her band, she is finally making it in life and yet it’s not enough. She has lived with pain for so long, a past she wished could be fixed, and a feeling of hopelessness for the future.

Then you have Jonah, a part-time limo driver, who is on a deadline and doesn’t veer from it. An artist with talent that rivals the greats, his vision is must be complete.

The first chapter had me. Kacey Dawson with her heart exposed in the first few pages was my indicator that this story was going to flare out into something amazing.

Emma Scott did not disappoint.

Kacey and Jonah’s characters felt so real. Their feelings were open for everyone to see. It was so raw, emotional and so very intimate.

Their story was so beautiful. This is the kind of book that makes you want to hug the one you love the most. Hug them tight and appreciate them more than when you started the story. Ms. Scott pulled all of the strings to make us feel all of their emotions as if you were living this right alongside them. Their triumphs I celebrated, their heartache I felt. My tear ducts weren’t dry from start to finish. I ugly cried so hard many times throughout this book, my husband thought someone I knew died.

Emma Scott’s writing was on point. She delivered a story that was pure, raw and full right to the very end. Her characters were well thought out and executed perfectly. All of her side stories added depth to the main plot with room for growth in the next book.

The last two chapters everyone. My heart! It was so tragically beautiful.

youre breaking my heart

Per usual, I don’t want to give too much away, but this book is very much worth reading.

If you are into books like TFIOS, Brightside or Me before you, friend-to-lover romance, this is the book for you.
