Full Tilt (Full Tilt, #1) by Emma Scott (Goodreads Author)

Full Tilt 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.

According to me a Prologue or the 1st Chapter of a book is THE reflection – SO it must capture my attention from page 1 I will continue a few more chapters to give the Book a fair chance to change my mind!

My review!

Meaning: The Author supplied this:

Full tilt (n) (poker): Playing emotionally instead of rationally; making impassioned rather than logical decisions

At its core, Full Tilt is a book about hope and what we take for granted every moment of life, Love, loss, tragedy, beauty, friendship, romance, memories, and this one lets you feel the moments you lost …. and experience terrible grief or soaring joy!

“No more living life halfway. We had to go full tilt, just like the card players did. I would hit instead of stay. Always.”

Prologue

Jonah suffered a serious infection that left him in needing a heart transplant.

Jonah!
Fifteen months ago…

White light pierced my eyes. I struggled to keep them open, then gave in and let them fall shut again. The beeping pulse was my heart. My new heart, pumping slowly in my chest.

OKAY SOLD for me reading the first two sentences!

Jonah Fletcher is running out of time. Knowing that you only have a matter of months to live has got to be one of the most surreal things in life.

“I didn’t know it then—I couldn’t have—but in that moment, the rest of my life, or what was left of it, began.” ~Jonah

Type of Characters and my choices according to pictures :

Kacey Dawson, I describe her as edgy, tempting fate, living recklessly

description

Jonah Fletcher – a Heart-breaker – literally broke my heart this man – he is an prestigious artist who works with glass part-time limo driver, he’s was my universe in this book. He resembles all good that the world makes ugly, he filled my soul he is that unique in this read. BUT Jonah is a persistent character and once he puts his mind to something well let’s just say → READ THE BOOK THE EXPERIENCE THIS MAN!

Kacey Dawson, Guitarist brink of fame and fortune, experience terrible grief and soaring joy. And on a path to self-destruction. From friendship into something more!

“This ball of glass and fire is as close as I’ll come to showing you what you’ve been to me. I tried to put everything you are and everything I feel for you all in one place. But capturing the enormity of you is impossible. It’s not enough. Nothing will ever be enough. You are a universe, Kacey.”

Jonah and Kacey feelings is so solid that no matter how hard they tried to remain just friends, the tug between them was too strong it was like A LIGHTNING STRIKE ON SOME PAGES

“You’re no more a mess than anyone else,” he said in a low voice.

“Yes,” I whispered. “He’s loved and he’ll be loved forever.”

“…if Kacey were willing, I could lie with her this night and every night thereafter, for however many I had left to me.”

Kasey and Jonah grow a bond of love and friendship in this book, you feel their love, you feel like a secondary character in this book – watching in heartbreak, what you expect or know will happen and there is not a thing you can do for them – their love makes this story so much more worth the read – the connection they shared is as if they knew each other their whole life, as if I knew them my whole life.

These two showed taught me the meaning how to live to your life everyday in the fullest.

And never to take anything for granted – least of all friendship that is hard to find and keep once broken!

“You’ve been a brilliant light in my drab, dark world. But if you let me kiss you again… If we start something right now, time won’t stand still. The end, my end, won’t be some nebulous thing off in the distance. It’ll race toward me, because…”

His voice choked off, and I held his hand tighter, our tears falling together.

“Because why?” I whispered.

“Because, Kace, the days will count down until there’s only one left,” he said through gritted teeth.
“The one where I have to say goodbye to you.”

“He kissed me again, slow and soft, while I burned with hope, sure there weren’t thousands of moments left to us, but millions. Millions.” ~Kacey

“Thanks for being a good guy, Jonah. There’s a shortage in the world.”

“Being loved by you, Jonah…it’s the greatest honor of my life.”

“I love you,” I said. “God, I never thought this would happen to me.”

“But it did,” she whispered. “It happened and all we can do now is take care of each other. Live in the little moments, right? Just like we promised. The little moments. We have so many. Thousands upon thousands.”

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

“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.”

“You are a universe, Kacey. I kept waiting to find the end of your love and beauty, the end of your generous heart. I never did. I never will.”

description

“Jonah groaned softly, his hands roamed over every inch of skin available to him: my neck, my shoulder, my face.

God, the way he held my face, cupped my chin in his hands… He kissed me as if I were something delicate and precious, something he cherished and held with reverence.
My first kiss. This is my first real kiss.”

“I can take it, whatever happens.”
“Where have you been all this time? You and I were always meant to be.”

“…we have moments. Thousands upon thousands of them. Let’s take each moment, seize it and wring it dry.”

“You’ve been a brilliant light in my drab, dark world.”

“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.”
