Review Tour - Long Live The Beautiful Hearts by Emma Scott

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 Weston, I was determined to keep them. To protect my heart. And then he came home, and my vows became his promises. He held my heart in his hands with reverence and care. He helped me find my soul’s greatest purpose in life. He loved me with a love so pure and vibrant, I knew I’d never feel anything like it in a hundred lifetimes. It was real. Until it wasn’t. Until it all came crashing down when I discovered the deep love I thought I’d found was nestled in a web of lies—so soft and silken I hadn’t noticed it was there. Until it was too late. ********** Long Live the Beautiful Hearts is the emotional, heart-wrenching conclusion to the Beautiful Hearts Duet by bestselling author, Emma Scott, and is inspired by the classic tale, Cyrano de Bergerac. (Roxanne) THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL LOVE TRIANGLE #confusedhearts #notamenage THIS BOOK IS NOT A STANDALONE. It should not be read without first reading Bring Down the Stars   

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. 

Autumn, Connor and Weston’s story gave me so much hope. It was really tough to get through at times but that’s all because of Emma Scott and her impeccable storytelling. She accomplished making me feel every emotion. Pretty incredible. 
I was invested in all three of them. I cared about them. Wanted them to succeed. To not give up. Come out of the darkness stronger. Believing in life and in themselves.

The journey Autumn, Connor and Weston embark upon feels real and also why it moved me so much. Their journey encompasses every emotion and is captured beautifully. To perfection as a matter of fact. The love they have for one another is honest and pure. They were meant to be in each other’s lives and that’s also why the emotions in this book were so visual and struck a chord with me. It hurt so damn much and that’s why it was such a stunning reading experience. 

This Duet is such a raw and emotional story of friends who love each other. Who loses hope not only in themselves but in one another. They fight back and reclaim their lives. Their new life cause what they’ve been through they could never go back. 
Emma Scott has created a new epic masterpiece of a duet. Thank you.

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. ********** Bring Down the Stars is an emotional, angst-filled novel of unrequited love by bestselling author, Emma Scott, and is inspired by the classic tale, Cyrano de Bergerac. (Roxanne) It is Book I in the Beautiful Hearts Duet, coming this summer. Book II, Long Live the Beautiful Hearts, to be released a few weeks later. #lovetriangle #confusedhearts #notamenage

Blog Tour - After Burn by Autumn Jones Lake

After Burn (Lost Kings MC #10) by Autumn Jones Lake
Release Date: October 16th
Cover Designed by: Letitia Hasser, RBA Designs Photography: Wander Aguiar Photography Model: Kaz Vanderwaard and Andrea M.

Whether it’s book 5 or book 10 of the Lost Kings it’s always so easy to get back into this series and these wonderful characters. One might think that 10 books of a series is enough but in this case it’s far from it. The author Autumn Jones Lake knows how to switch it up from book to book and there’s the core of characters to keep me enthralled and interested. Lost Kings keeps getting better with every book. The characters keep showing new sides and shedding layers of themselves for me to come back for more.

After Burn is primarily about Rock and his ol’ lady and wife Hope but the other members of the MC play a role too. As they should cause it’s a brotherhood. They’re a family. 
Rock and Hope’s story has been told and explored in the first three book in the series and in White Heat. I can’t get enough of this power couple. They complement each other and are perfect as the MC’ s King and Queen. Their love and dedication to one another, the club and brothers never waver. I didn’t think it was possible to enjoy them more but I did. What they go through was something the author had teased in her previous books and I was giddy as hell. 
Rock and Hope lean on another and the brothers are there as well. With support and jokes as usual. I laughed my ass off numerous times when Z or Wrath bust Murphy and Teller’s asses. It was so good to be back with this gang. Like coming home.

After Burn is book 10 and I’m beyond ready for book 11 - After Glow. With that ending I’m just as excited for more Rock, Hope and the gang. I need it!
Autumn Jones Lake has created a series about a MC but it’s so much more. Lost Kings is all about family, love and brotherhood. I’ll never get enough of that and these people. I’m a LOKI fan forever.

Through the web of tangled loyalties, one thing remains clear.
Hope is embedded in my soul.

Each painful piece of our pasts brought us to this moment.

And one uncovered truth could burn it all to the ground.

Old hurt runs deep…

After she left, I was given a second chance at life thanks to my savior and adoptive father. A chance I refused to waste. Determined to be invincible, I became a true fighter in every sense of the word. Nothing and no one would get in my way.

Not even the guy who sat behind me in class.

Zack Graves had the entire world in his hands. A promising hockey career and the confidence and gorgeous looks that had every girl throwing themselves at his feet.

Except me. I was only too happy to wipe the sexy smirk off his face while tossing him on his smug ass.

And he kept coming back for more.

I kept my scars hidden, until Zack managed to trace the lines straight to a place I fought to keep guarded.

Zack was fighting his own immortality, his own scars becoming visible the closer we got. He challenged my guard at every turn forcing me to fight harder, only to realize he would be my undoing.

But some wounds refuse to heal.

Sweet Insanity was a lovely surprise and Desireé Adele nailed her debut. Sweet Insanity didn’t feel like a debut book whatsoever. I liked the topics in the story and how they affected the two protagonists Dahlia and Zack. Both have experienced loss in their life and that’s influenced them greatly. Especially Dahlia has had a rough upbringing but thankfully she has Christos in her life. I really enjoyed this wonderful man and the impact he and his family has had on Dahlia. She’s a survivor and warrior who doesn’t take crap from anyone. At least Zack.

Their first standoff between them was amazing and fun cause it truly showed the fierce side to Dahlia. Zack is such a good guy who’s relentless in his pursuit of Dahlia. His patience and humor are just one of the qualities I enjoyed about him. 
Their friendship and relationship takes time because of Dahlia and the fears and insecurities she struggles with but I liked that. I got to know Zack and Dahlia individually and they both have strengths and flaws. 

Sweet Insanity is all about facing your fears and lean on the people who loves and supports you. Both Zack and Dahlia learned from their mistakes and came out stronger because of that. 
I’m excited about the next book cause this debut was fabulous and Keith definitely caught my attention.
