REVIEW – FULL TILT (Full Tilt, #1) by Emma Scott



“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. But she is torn between wanting to be a serious musician, and the demons that lure her down the glittering, but alcohol-soaked path of rock stardom. A wrecked concert in Las Vegas threatens to ruin her career entirely. She wakes up with the hangover from hell and no memory of the night before, or how she ended up on her limo driver’s couch…

Jonah Fletcher is running out of time. He knows his situation is hopeless, and he’s vowed to make the most of the handful of months he has left to him. His plans include seeing the opening of his glass installation at a prestigious art gallery…they do not include falling in love with a wild, tempestuous rock musician who wound up passed out on his couch.

Jonah sees that Kacey is on a path to self-destruction. He lets her crash with him for a few days to dry out and get her head on straight. But neither of them expected the deep connection they felt, or how that connection could grow so fast from friendship into something more. Something deep and pure and life-changing…something as fragile as glass, that they both know will shatter in the end no matter how hard they try to hold on to it.

Full Tilt is a story about what it means to love with your whole heart, to sacrifice, to experience terrible grief and soaring joy. To live life with all its beauty, and all its pain, and in the end to be able to smile through tears and know you wouldn’t have changed a thing.

One Million Stars *******

A life changing read! I feel like this book was written out of a piece of my heart. The beauty that pours out of the pages of this novel took ownership of all my smiles, and all my tears. This book is an absolute MUST READ!!!!!!


Kacey Dawson is a Rockstar on the cusp of stardom. Together with her band, they have been successfully selling records and performing non-stop all over the country. But Kacey’s heart feels empty, her loneliness is eating at her. Every night she tries to find purpose in the bottom of a bottle, and companionship in the arms of strange men, but in the light of day, her mistakes only add more weight to her already heavy heart.

Jonah Fletcher is just a guy with a borrowed heart. He is getting weaker by the day, but one thing he has is courage and he will be the one to come and save Kacey from drowning.

When Kacey meets Jonah, she knows him as simply the limo driver in charge of driving her around, but on a particularly bad night, this handsome man will change her world around forever.

Jonah doesn’t have a lot of time, all his focus and energy is devoted to finishing his glass installation. He has a perfectly crafted schedule that he follows every day to help him achieve his goal. He has been hiding under all that planning, and avoiding the darkness that’s been looming around him.

Kacey came into Jonah’s life like an unexpected burst of color. She’s making him feel again after being numbed for so long. The love between them was like an explosion that took down every wall they had built around their hearts, and giving them both the most beautiful gift of all…hope.


I remember reading in the author’s note; Emma saying how this book was not what she had planned to write next, but that the story was just begging to be written. After reading it, I totally understand what she means by that, this is a story that demands and captures not only your attention but also your heart and soul. Jonah and Kacey grabbed onto me and I really doubt they’ll ever let me go.

The subject matter of this story could be considered as sad, but for me, it wasn’t. This book made me feel painfully happy. My emotions were bursting out of me. I wanted to scream, cry, dance and laugh like a mad woman. That is the power of a beautifully written story, you find yourself happily lost inside those pages, and after you are done reading, you know some part of you will never be the same.

I will forever be an Emma Scott fan, and this book is my absolute, most favorite EVER!!!!

Please read it, don’t miss out on the incredible beauty…
