5+ stars!!!


All In is the all-consuming, beautiful conclusion to Full Tilt. It’s one of those books that ‘hurt so good’. Full Tilt was one of the very best books I’ve read this year. It’s an unforgettable and touching read. I was anxious to read this one. Would it live up to the first? I can easily say with no hesitation YES. It did. Just like the first book, this one left it’s mark on me. I have been thinking of it non-stop since I finished. This story won’t leave my head or my heart. My tears

Full Tilt was one of the very best books I’ve read this year. It’s an unforgettable and touching read. I was anxious to find out what would happen to Kacey Dawson.

All In is an intense, powerful and beautiful conclusion to the Full Tilt Duet by Emma Scott.
A compelling, touching, moving, unforgettable and inspiring story of love, loss, hope, heartbreak, family, friendship - a story that makes your heart and soul hurt and makes you cry with sadness

While the book wasn’t as earth shattering as its predecessor, it did more than hold it’s on. It stood on it’s own, a different story but just as beautiful. And while Full Tilt taught me to revel in the moments, All In reminded me where truth lies. I’m the kind of person who overthinks everything, so these words were the perfect antidote.
What an amazing discovery Emma Scott is to me. I can’t wait to read more of her books!
Just perfect. A true romance, with all of the angsty touches that keeps tug

"Love had no end. She was infinite. She was a universe, my universe, and I was hers.
Love had no boundaries, no rules, no favorites.
And no limits."

"Full Tilt" and "All In" books were the hardest books I ever read. They gave me the best but also the worst days of my life... I cried too much while I was reading them but it was so worth all my tears... Jonah, Theo, Kacey touched my heart, touched my soul... I’ll never, ever forget this story, I'll never forget them.. Never… <3

This is book 2 of the Full Tilt series and it's advised that you read Full Tilt before reading All In.

Three words to describe this book: Empathic. Fluid. True. I would have been tempted to get all giddy about this story if, having lost a sibling myself, the subject matter hadn't been so close to home. Following Full Tilt, I waited with baited breath to read how Emma would handle this slightly controversial plot move.

“How can I ever let go when there was still so much I didn’t do?” she demanded with sudden fire. “Because I could have done more. I should have done more. I should’ve married him. Did he want that? A wedding? Or I could have had his baby. So he could know that a part of him would go on forever.”


“I could’ve done it,” she said fiercely. “How can I let go when I didn’t do enough?”

“Bullshit,” I said. “Was Jonah ever not honest with you about what he wanted? Ever?”

She sniffed and shrugged.

“Love had no boundaries, no rules, no favorites. And no limits.”

I really needed a warm hug after finishing this book. The heartbreaking yet heart-warming journey was as good as can be expected.


All In was a perfect follow-up to Full Tilt. It's a powerful story of starting over and emotional healing. I don't want to give too much away by describing the plot but all I have to say is, the book effortlessly took my breath away, moved me in so many levels, and made me feel happy in

Hello epic book hangover. That's it. I'm done.
This series has captured my heart and wrecked it, yet I can't help and want to start at the beginning right now. I'm in love with the whole lot of main and secondary cast and I just missed them ten minutes after closing the book. I'm trying to keep this review as spoiler-free as possible but if you haven't read Full Tilt yet...what are you waiting for?

Emma Scott, comes full circle with the second part of the Full Tilt duology, with All In, this is probably one of the books I have anticipated the most this year, and if you have read Full Tilt I am certain you would understand why. If you haven’t the below review does contain spoilers, and to be blunt, you need to read it first, to understand just how awesome-sauce this book actually is.

This will, without a doubt, be the longest review I've ever written. But we all love reading, so it's not super obnoxious, right?! ... Right?!?? Well I hope not, but I have a lot of freaking feelings about this amazing novel (and duet, really). So I'm going to write this long ass review and hope people will take the time to read it ;)

This story was beautiful and heartbreaking. Is a book that starts with a lot of pain, and ends with even more hope. You'll feel, and live each word as if they were your own, making this duet simply magnificent...

For all that Full Tilt shattered me, All In put me back together again and there is absolutely no question that these books are two of my favourite all-time reads.


Simply put, Emma Scott has created a wonderful, and again poignant, story of love, loss and hope. To take the story down the path she does was a bold move and to do it with such flawless perfection displays real talent, and whilst my emotions weren't quite so extreme this time around, they were roused so many times.

AND ....... EXHALE. It has been 82 days since reading the gut-wrenching first book of this duet "Full Tilt". My heart pure ached for Jonah and Kacey, but I also knew Theo was waiting in the wings to put all the broken pieces back together. I just could not fathom how Emma Scott was going satisfy her readers, who like me, were lying prostate in the fetal position and basically looking like Humpty Dumpty.

"Choose your card, sweetheart."

There was no fortune card choosing for me in this story. I think the deck was already fully laid out. When I read Full Tilt, I was shattered, completely and utterly shattered. Starting All In, I read the love, the passion, I could literally sense the dedication, the commitment that Theo had in making Kacey his in every way. Not going to lie, I was ready to pull my hair out at the lack of communication between Theo & Kacey when it came to their feelings but once the

"This close, he was my entire world, with no place for anything else."

All In is the conclusion to one of the most sweetest, heartfelt stories I've read all year...Full Tilt. If ever I anticipated a book it would be Theo and Kacey's story. I fell in love with these two characters from book one and I was so excited to see what becomes of them. The chemistry between Kacey and Theo was undeniable. It was beautiful, if a tad bit forbidden, but hey the heart knows what, or who, it

If you haven’t blocked me from hijacking your feed yet, you may have noticed I’ve spent the last few days beta-reading for Emma Scott. If this had been an ARC, I would have inhaled it in one sitting. As it was, I had to keep reminding myself that I was not reading purely for my enjoyment. Even though I did enjoy it. Immensely.

And that is the magic word folks… "ENJOY." If you’re reading this, then like myself you probably LOVED Full Tilt.
Fuckin beautiful...

that s all i can say at this point...

It's been a while since I've read Full Tilt and made my peace with the emotional part of that story, yeah, it was emotional even for me, even though there were NO shed tears...LOL

Anyway, it was about time to wrap up this wonderful journey...and hold all the little pieces together, once more!

So, you need to read Full Tilt (Full tilt duet #1) first, then All in (Full Tilt duet #2) to fully appreciate the message and the beauty o

Before starting this book, I was suspicious. Everyone who'd read it kept saying it would make it all better, it'd make the hurt go away. That it would HELP. Still, after being destroyed by Full Tilt, I couldn't imagine how it could ever be better.

Then, the bomb: Theo was going to be Kacey's new love interest.

There are so many spoilers I want to write about right now! I want to gush all my feelings and share everything about Full Tilt and All In! However, I shall refrain myself! I know that you can "hide" the spoilers or write "DO NOT CONTINUE READING, SPOILERS AHEAD"! If you are a curious/nosy person like myself those warnings NEVER work. No matter how much I don't want to read them.

Just just as a forewarning, All In is second to Full Tilt in Emma Scott’s newest duet. All In CANNOT be read as a standalone. With this being said, I’ve included an excerpt (spoiler free) at the top of this post and will include my review after. My review will contain some spoilers to Full Tilt so unless you’ve read the book, you may want to skip my review of All In and check out my spoiler free review of Full Tilt instead!
