5 Huge "No Regrets" Stars

OMG this book! Sometimes, when I'm reading a certain book, I keep hearing about a different book and that other book calls to me so hard that I have to leave everything and just read it. That is exactly what happened with Full Tilt. I just had to read it, even though it might break my heart. Once I started, I just couldn't stop, so I didn't stop. I just read it...all day. And my God is this book gorgeous! I have to admit that I cheated and read a review that had spoilers. For me, that definitely intrigued me to give the book a chance even faster. But to be honest, it's probably better to be blind. So forgive me for saying a bunch of nothing on this review, lol.

Jonah is a part time limo driver, but his real passion is glass art, he's extremely talented and works super hard. He has a very tight inner circle and rarely lets anyone in. Until one night he has to drive Kacey, who is a rock star and is lost and down the wrong path. In many ways, Jonah ends up becoming her hero, and savior. The chemistry between them is undeniable and their connection is super strong from the get go.

“And yet,” I said, gulping air, getting a hold of myself. “Here I am.”

“Here you are…” Jonah said, his eyes roaming my face. “Believe me, I didn’t want to let you in. But it was almost as if…”

“What?” I whispered.

“As if I didn’t have a choice,” Jonah said. “I tried to keep the circle closed and my walls up, keep to my routine…But you got in anyway.”
He gently swiped a tear from my chin. “You feel it too, right?”

I nodded. “Yes.”


I loved Kacey, I love my heroines strong and she's so fierce and strong. I loved her evolution through the book. I love how she just wanted to be better, for Jonah and for herself. And I Fi-ing loved Jonah. Jonah was precious, he was everything.

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

“I kept waiting to find the end of your love and beauty, the end of your generous heart. I never did. I never will. I don’t know how or why you chose me to love, and you did choose. You could’ve walked away and saved yourself. Instead, you chose to stay, and so saved me”

The blurb is pretty self explanatory and it gives you an idea about what's going on. True, it says #nocliffhanger and #nocancer, but that doesn't mean the book is not emotional. There is heartbreak on this book and some people might not like how the story ends. I was pleased with it, it's probably not what I have wanted but, it left me hopeful. I loved that in the execution of the plot there are no gimmicks, surprises or excessive cheesiness. This book is all beauty and feels, and it's very realistic. And I definitely want to read book 2.

The cast of secondary characters, Jonah's mom and dad, Theo, Dena, Oscar and Tania "the Seven" were all amazing characters, and I loved them all, hard. I also have to mention that I loved the writing. It's gorgeous. Emma Scott has been in my radar for a while and her other books are high on my TBR. I can't wait to read them now, she's amazingly talented. That's all I have. This book it gorgeous, go get it. It might break your heart, and you might ugly cry, but give it a chance. It's one of those books that will stay with you for a while!

“I felt him in every pore, every breath and beat of our hearts. I’d never experienced anything like this in my life. He was a universe. My love for him was just as boundless.”
