I fell for Connor Drake. I didn’t want to; I fought against it, but I fell in love with him anyway. With his words. With his poetry. With him. The gentleness and beauty of his soul that speaks directly to mine. He writes as if he can feel my heart, hear its cadence and compose the exact right lyrics to accompany every beat and flow.

I’m in love with Connor…so why do I fee

"I wondered if Autumn ever saw a sky like this in Nebraska. I hoped she had. I hoped someday she’d see something like this. I wished I could give it to her. I would bring down the stars for her…"


Three Words:
Only. Emma. Scott.


A Start Note
Bittersweet is the only word that I can think of when I think of how to describe this novel. It's the word that Weston, Autumn and Connor hand in hand tattoo over your heart as you flip the pages.
Bring Down The Stars will leave you reelin

I just did a re-read to refresh my mind of every nuisance in this incredible storyline before I read book two. WOW!! I swear it was like reading it for the first time, as I discovered new and crucial bits and pieces I missed the first go around.

My heart is as prepared as it is going to be for the conclusion. GAH!!! I can’t wait to dive in!!!

Have Mercy Above!!!

So, going to attempt to pull myself together and write something coherent ...

I am in utter and complete awe for the twelfth time.

“Yeah, I love her,” I said. “I don’t know how it happened, or why, but I do. Something in me connects to something in her. I’ve felt it since the day we met.”

I just finished this. Like a minute ago, and I’m just speechless, there are no words. What the heck am I going to do with myself until Book 2 comes out? I don’t know but I don’t even want to think about it. Back to this book, yeah this book, it was just amazing! This is probably going to be all over the place and I will probably babble

My thoughts in a nutshell
I love Emma Scott's books, but it was a nightmare. The Full Tilt series put my expectation high. I also saw only 5 stars reviews about it. I feel like I read the totally wrong book. My review includes full spoilers description, please don't continue if you want to read it.

I warned you!

What is my problem with this book?
Firstly, Weston's father leaves his family when the boy is 7. It is a traumatic point. I admit it. But I don't agree with the fact that his father ru

I could feel Connor’s mouth lingering on mine. Or was it Weston’s? It had felt so real, both kisses. Connors, I could still feel on my mouth and body, while Weston’s, I felt somewhere deep, in the center of me…

STUNNING!!! The latest by Emma Scott is simply breathtaking! It is sure to be considered another EPIC story written by one of the most talented authors of the romance genre. I never know what kind of story I’m going to be jumping

This is my current state........

My review will be short as I honestly can't form words....
I've devoured Emma Scott's books before and I've suffered severe hangovers afterwards. But now, NOW I don't know how I will go on........... This book destroyed me, I have no idea how to feel, what the fu*k is going on, and holy shit I need the next book now.............

I'm not going to say much, why? Because you don't want to have any clue as to what happens in this book, go in blind. To experience

I love reading the reviews for this book. Especially the ones that begin, “This is my first Emma Scott book, and it won’t be my last…”

You're not alone. We’ve all said it…right before disappearing into our blankie forts and blowing through her backlist with stockpiles of chocolate. I should warn you though…when you reach the end of said backlist, it will be a dark, lonely day. But don’t fear. There's a support group for that.

I knew it. I freaking KNEW within just a few pages of starting this book that I was going to lose my mind when it ended. I tried to keep reminding myself that yes, THIS IS, in fact, A DUET and this first part would, in fact, end and I'd definitely be left with some unresolved feelings. But OOOOH MY WORD, I was not expecting to feel so lost. So emotional. So desperately in love with EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING about this novel. I can't handle myself right now. I just can't.

This epic love and friendship story will push you through your limits. It will frustrate you. It will hurt you. It will also fill you with so many beautiful emotions you won’t be able to contain them. Read this with a survival kit composed of: ice cream, alcohol, tissues and punching bag. It is also best to protect your E-reader with the latest and bulkiest case or have a good insurance.

WARNING: disorganized/emotional/rant review ahead!

'Bring Down the Stars,' encapsulates everything I love about reading. The story has everything for me. It is character driven, has a richly layered story board, tangible emotions. I wholly believed in the telling and the motivation of all aspects, and the angsty trajectory of the narrative is absolutely exquisite. The dialogue is perfect. EVERYTHING is perfect. The vivid storytelling engaged my attention from the beginning and as the author layered the intricate web of emotion I found myself fal

I’m sitting here staring into space trying to fathom what I’ve just read cause I’m completely speechless and blown away by Bring Down The Stars by Emma Scott.
BDTS captures beautifully how love and loyalty will make you sacrifice your own happiness at the expense of your own. That’s exactly what Weston does for the people he loves. He sacrifices, gives and loves. Fiercely.

I’m in awe of his love and loyalty for Connor. His best friend no matter what. Their friendship is filled with love but
4 Stars

Overall Opinion: This was a great start to the duet! I'm really worried about how this is going to go after that cliffy though. I liked the Roxanne parallels going in here...I've never read the book, but I remember watching the old Steve Martin movie when I was young and enjoying the story. Now I'm on to the next book!

I went into this not reading any spoilers, and I think that's the way to go! There are some things that can be ruined by my review, but I tried really hard not to give too

Weston Turner and Connor Drake had been inseparable since childhood. As best friends, they always had each other’s back. When Autumn Caldwell came into their lives, it fired up something deep within both of their souls. But as friendship and love collided, one of them burned bright, the other one burned to ashes.

“ For you I would bring the stars, wreath their fire around your neck like diamonds, and watch them pulse to the beat of your heart”.

First off let me just say that before this book, I’ve never read anything from this author before and I honestly did not know what to expect. Would I love her writing style?, will she be able to sweep me off feet with her lyrical words and keep me enraptured in her fictional world? So many questions were going through my head and I found myself being sc

Wow! Seriously... WOW!! It's been a long time since I've been shocked into silence. It took me awhile to figure out how to put my thoughts and feelings into words. This story was heartbreakingly stunning and although I hate love triangles, Emma Scott made me a fan (at least for this duet).

Oh my freaking gawd!!! This book left me obliterated! I have felt every emotion known to man and reveled in it knowing that this author always takes care of my heart in the end. But this book, this story, this end, has taken me farther from my comfort zone than I could have ever imagined and despite the angst and pain of it all, I loved every single word as I inhaled it all in its delicious brokenness and unwilling treachery.

*Thanks again to the author Emma Scott for sending me a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*

The first time I tried reading this book was around Christmas last year but I couldn’t even get through the first chapter of it. I wasn’t really in the mood to force myself through that chapter to see if it would get better afterwards and so I put the book down again. But I was sent a copy of Bring Down the Stars for review so I knew that it wouldn’t be fair to give up on it

Wow, this was an all consuming read for me.

Connor is the boy who has it all, he comes from a wealthy family, is blessed with good looks and knows how to pull the chicks. The only thing he desperately craves is his parents approval. It has conditions that he can’t seem to meet, not matter how hard he tries to convince them other otherwise.

Weston first meets Connor when he wins a scholarship to a middle school in the city. His talent for writing won him a place at this school which will be a great

Weston, Connor and Autumn are 3 people I won’t be forgetting in a hurry. They each have their own sadness and heartbreak about them and reading their stories unravel complete guts you. Wes’ story is the most heartbreaking, having that kind of hurt so early
"Maybe pain exists to make us appreciate the beauty."

Let's start with the fact that I was a little skeptic if I will like this book or this duet at all. Because I'm not into love triangles and I couldn't see how this will go down. And I'm really sorry that I doubted Emma. I should have known that she wouldn't write a typical love triangle. That she would find a way to create something so special, that the whole world should read this!

It is always difficult for me to convey into words how much a book moved me or how much I loved it or how amazing it is—for fear of not doing it justice. I am faced with that again as I sit down and write my review for Bring Down the Stars by Emma Scott. Because this book deserves all the recognition and praise. It was all those things for me…and so much more. A gorgeous, poetic, brilliant book that centers around abandonment, friendship, and unrequited love.
