REVIEW – BRING DOWN THE STARS (Beautiful Hearts, #1) by Emma Scott

SYNOPSIS

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 feel an inexplicable pull to his best friend, Weston? Grouchy, sullen, brooding Weston Turner, who could cut you down with a look. Fiercely intelligent with a razor sharp wit and acid tongue, he’s the exact opposite of Connor in every way, and yet there’s electricity in the air between us. The thorny barbs Weston wraps around himself can’t keep me away.

But the more time I spend with these men, the more tangled and confused my emotions become. When they both sign up for the Army Reserves during a time of increasing strife in the Middle East, I fear I’ll never unravel my own heart that sometimes feels as if it will tear straight down the middle…for both of them.

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 into when I pick up one of this author’s books, but I know that it’s going to touch my heart and soul, and that is what I felt by the time I finished this one. It proves how beyond talented Emma Scott is to be able to write such a magnificent story after having suffered unimaginable loss and heartbreak. I will read whatever this woman writes for as long as she continues to do so.

 

 

 

BRING DOWN THE STARS is a love triangle, and it’s filled with heartbreaking angst, but to not read this book would be simply a tragedy. The plot and the characters are mesmerizing. There wasn’t a thing that I didn’t love about this story. It is a modern day twist to the story of ”Cyrano de Bergerac”. Autumn is the lucky lady who is the object of affection of two best friends, Connor and Weston. While Connor saw Autumn first on campus, it was Weston who met and shared an interesting conversation with the beautiful girl soon after. Both men were instantly taken with her, but Weston backs down and keeps his feelings buried deep inside because of his love for his best friend.

 

 

 

Connor and Weston come from completely different worlds and are polar opposites but have been like brothers since high school. While Connor is the easy-going charmer, who wins the popularity contest wherever he goes, Weston is the quiet introvert, who most see as cold and aloof. He’s been hurt by the one person who should have loved him unconditionally and it has caused him to close himself off from people. He doesn’t see himself as being worthy of love and it’s the reason why he thinks that Connor is the better man who deserves to be with Autumn. Weston is the soulful poet who helps his buddy out with wooing the girl. While Connor is easy on the eyes and happy go lucky, he’s not good with words, and Autumn is a hopeless romantic who loves poetry and meaningful conversations. She likes Connor and is attracted to him but her heart doesn’t fall for him until she gets his poetic and beautiful words via texts and letters. But what she doesn’t know is that it’s Weston that is the author of the words that speak to her soul.

 

 

While both Heroes were incredible, my heart instantly fell for Weston. His loyalty to his best friend was extremely honorable but the pain he felt for not being able to confess his true feelings to Autumn was utterly heartbreaking. It is simply an impossible situation that these three characters are tangled up in. There isn’t a chance that any of them will walk away with their hearts unscathed.

 

 

The truth will inevitably be revealed and when that happens will they both lose the girl and the friendship that has always meant more than anything to them?

Here are my overall ratings

Heroes: 5+++++
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5++++++
Angst: 5
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

*****Dee’s Review*****

FIVE Brilliant Stars*****

This book is EVERYTHING!

This is a beautiful story about love, friendship, and sacrifice. Emma Scott with her poignant words shows us how soulmates not only come in a romantic form but sometimes in a friend.

 

The characters in this story will take you on a beautiful journey where friendship and love save lives.

It’s hard to say much without giving away the plot, so you are just going to have to trust me when I tell you that you really do want to read this book. Like any other Emma Scott novel, her vivid words are something you can feel, and will remember forever. The angst is very high but so is the romance, and I simply didn’t want this book to end, ever….

Each character plays an important part in the beautiful puzzle that is this story. I’ll be counting down the days until we get the next book.
