"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.

Full Tilt is one of those stories that I know will stay on my mind for many days to come. It’s a story that touched my heart and one I won’t ever forget. When I heard about this book, I couldn’t wait to read it. I love this authors words and every book she’s written that I’ve read has been a total win for me. I wanted to jump in straight away when it hit my kindle. I knew it would be an emotional read and I decided to go in blind. I didn’t read the blurb, I had no idea what i

"I would love you forever,
if I only had the chance..."

WOW!! I read this book start to finish without stopping and I was hugging my book with tears in my eyes by the end. This is one of those stories that reminds you to be grateful for every moment of life. The writing was captivating, the romance was heart-breaking yet achingly beautiful, and I absolutely LOVED Kacey and Jonah's story! It's an unconventional romance that delivers such a raw, emotionally int

Per me a Prologue or the 1st Chapter of a book is THE reflection!

SO it must capture my attention from page 1 I will continue a few more chapters to give the Book a fair chance to change my mind!!

My review!

"No more living life halfway. We had to go full tilt, just like the card players did. I would hit instead of stay. Always."

➦I will try to keep this review short and to the point. This book has completely wrecked me. I knew going into this book that it was going to be painful, but I didn't think it would be painful to this extent.

Kacey, our heroine, is a guitarist in a rock band. She hates the life style and spends a lot of time drowning her sorrows in liquor.

Jonah's days are numbered and

"I would love you forever, if I only had the chance..."


I’m honored to have been asked to read this story and it was indeed a well written touching book. However, the hashtags at the bottom of the synopsis #nocliffhanger #nocancer #tearjerker left me feeling a bit tricked and I found them to be intentionally misleading. I stupidly read the story with a false sense of security for me. ** Major spoiler to book only if you want to know life and death sort of things...(view spoiler)

"What is the difference between the love of your life and your soulmate? One is choice and one is not." This is a story of soulmates......

Well damn........I am seriously in my feelings right now. I don't know if I should mad at or happy with Emma Scott right now. She has written a book so good that I don't know what to do with myself. (I'm happy with her!!!)

After I finished I had to lay down in my bed and shed a few tears.....ok, more than a few, a lot of tears. My poor husband

Someone hold me this had too many feels. I die.

Alternating some fun reads with ARCS; this is the one that has been on my shelf the longest and has come highly recommended. LET'S DO THIS! 🍩💔☕📚

“I would love you forever, Kacey, if I only had the chance.”

8 days ago, that was my first reaction when I finished this book. Because I was feeling like I lost the love of my life.
And even after all days later seems like nothing have changed. When I re-read my favorite parts
