Never again would I allow my heart to become the plaything of someone else.
Never again would I let a man (or men) come between me and my goals.
Never again would I love without feeling the fullness of that love in return.
Not until I knew it was real. And if that took me a lifetime to find, so be it.

Those were my vows, and after all that had happened with Connor and Wes

Dearest Emma,

First, please accept my heartfelt gratitude for poignantly portraying in the most dignified way, the character of the selfless men and women who bravely defended and continue to defend our country, day in and day out, all over the world. If my husband, a 27 year vet, read romance and picked up this phenomenal book, he would be extremely ple

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve edited several of Emma’s books, LLBH being the latest. Part of editing a story is basically punching the shit out of it, therefore I can’t possibly write an objective, unbiased review. But suffice it to say, in my previewed, heavily biased, bruised-knuckle opinion, you’re going to lose your minds over this one. Enjoy! (Evil laugh)

It’s always hard putting thoughts into words when it comes to an Emma Scott book, and it’s especially hard this time because of the potential for spoilers. But as I begin hour three of staring at my screen, I realize neither of those reasons are exactly my problem.

I want to say, I loved it and you will too, then list off compelling reasons to convince you to dive in, because seriously, you should. But the truth is, while I loved it for the same reasons everyone else did, I had a deeper connecti

Overall Opinion: This was a good conclusion to the duet. It didn't go the route I was dreading it was going to -- thank goodness! It took a turn into something unexpected and unique in that I've never read anything like it. That alone, made the book enjoyable. I'm going start that broken record here, so forgive me -- why not a farther glimpse into the future?! I get that we get some closure about a lot of stuff, but I wanted to see Autumn get her HEA!

I am in awe. Total and complete awe. This book, this story from the beginning of book one, these characters and this author have left me totally incapable of a single thought and yet I am trembling from the wash of emotions that I’m left with as I close the last page.

Ms. Scott let it be known that writing the blurb for this book was nearly impossible without spoilering it for the reader. It was also revealed that the same struggle existed when attempting to create teasers. So how, may I ask, am

Finally!!!! I get to read the second book and finish this amazing book duet. And oh waaaw! I’m broken! Those two books broke my heart in the worst way possible! I’m not gonna talk about what’s this book about, because after the first book cliffhanger, it’s better to get into this one blind.

A love that ran deeper than friendship, deeper than family. A combat-tested bond that transcended blood and bone.
Emma Scott knows how to move me with her words and storytelling. She excels with Long Live The Beautiful Hearts. Her prose is stronger and more poignant than ever. I was in another world while reading this extraordinary book.
I knew this Duet was special just from reading book 1 Bring Down The Stars. LLTBH reaffirmed my thoughts and also blew them away. This story like book 1 is filled with so much love, heartbreak and hope.

Long Live the Beautiful Hearts is the highly anticipated final part in Emma Scott's duet series #TheBeautifulHearts and boy what a powerful conclusion #allthehearts #allthelove #allthefeels.

Highly developed, complex relationships line the writing canvas in which the protagonists continue their epic dance of love, embracing heartache, forgiveness and friendship. A story of hope, a story of strength, and of fear, tragedy and forgiveness, a story of finding ones worth and emerging from inner demon

Weston Turner and Connor Drake were best friends who always had each other’s back. When they both enlisted in the army, they knew the risks they’re willing to take. Autumn Caldwell cared for both of them but she was the one trapped in the middle and left to pick up the pieces.

I may have lied to her face but it was better than hurting her with the truth.

5+++ “Thank You for These Hearts” Stars

From the first page, I knew my heart was going to be ravaged. What I didn’t fully realize, that by the end of the story my heart would be completely healed. The story was beautifully tragic and beautifully wonderful. The gift of the author’s talented words made for a moving, emotional, deeply touching story of finding happiness and love against an inner turmoil of not following your own destiny and of shrouding your soul with an armor that does not let you

In all my years reading, and reviewing I never found myself speechless, like I am now. How can I possibly find words that can explain or even do justice to such a powerful story? Nothing I say could, nothing anyone says ever, could explain the beauty that is this book. The Beautiful Hearts Duet is simply transcendent.

Continuing without interruption in the plot timeline, Long Live the Beautiful Hearts opens with the protagonists - Weston Turner, Connor Drake and Autumn Caldwell – facing difficult and serious issues. Knowing the longstanding demons Weston has faced, it affects how he processes loss. As for Connor, he continues to search for fulfillment.

I am so glad I finally finished this beautiful duet. I can now rest in peace knowing the ending.

At the end I awarded this book 4 stars. Because Autumn. When she finally found out the truth about Wes and Connor, she acted like a bitchy drama queen. All she focused was her own feeling and her hurt. She has no consideration of Wes's feeling where he suppressed his true feeling toward Autumn. To be honest I can sympathize with Wes. He is the real hero.

How did I know that this book would mess with my heart? The ending of the last one set me up and I had no idea what was going to happen next. I just knew that my heart would never be the same. And it wasn't. But at least it didn't break me. This story may have wrung out every emotion I didn't even know I had in me, but it didn't break me. It was beautiful in its pain and stunning in its angst. Still not your typical love triangle but it had plenty of drama.

Finally the second book!

It was just as heartbreaking as I feared it would be.

We already read the prologue at the end of book #1 and we knew what had happened to the boys in the war. Now they're back home and things are not easy. Not at all.

That's all I'm telling you about the story - I don't want to spoil anything! READ IT!

For you, I would
Bring down the stars,
Wreath their fire
Around your neck
Like diamonds,
And watch them
To the beat of your heart.

Well didn’t Emma Scott just bring our hearts through the ringer in this heart-breaking yet wonderful love story. Her writing never fails to evoke every emotion, every tear that falls from exquisite sentence upon sentence belongs to her. Every ache and every stumble of breath comes from her placing her heart and her soul into the pages.

Thanks again to Emma Scott for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Long Live the Beautiful Hearts was such a great book and I think I even enjoyed it a tad bit more than Bring Down the Stars! This book made me so incredibly emotional and I might’ve shed a tear or two here and there because there were so many heavy scenes in this novel. I’m also still so in love with all of the awesome characters Scott has created and I’m so glad we got to read more about them.

“This story is about the Once Born and the Twice Born,” Professor O said. “The Once Born man walks the path of life, and when the path takes him into the dark forest of hardship and trauma, loss or pain, he stops, refusing to take another step. He tries to flee the way he came, but it’s closed forever. So he lives his life certain the world is unfair and harsh. Others around him point to the scratching branches and looming shadows and say ‘Yes, life is hard and unfair. See?’ And they make camp among the hardships, instead of continuing on the path” 4 likes
“ahead. The way out.” His deep, melodious voice crafted words of air and sound that landed gently on my chest, seeping into my bones. “But there is the Twice Born man, Weston,” he said, his hand tightening on mine. “The man who walks into the dark forest of his life and suffers. Sometimes unimaginably. The way back is forever closed to him, but the Twice Born man walks forward. The path becomes more twisted, the hardships seemingly impossible to overcome. But he keeps going until one day, the shadows lift. The branches cease to scratch at his skin and they part for him. He’ll regard the scars with pride as he emerges from the forest reborn. Stronger for what he has endured. Wiser. Transformed. And grateful for the lessons he learned.” 3 likes
