My review will be as spoiler-free as possible, but if you haven’t read Full Tilt you should not be reading this review any further. It’s such an incredible read, I recommend you read it ASAP, but don’t read anymore of this review. STOP READING. It’s impossible to review this book without SOME spoilers of Full Tilt and I don’t want that book to be spoiled for anyone.
After I read Full Tilt, I was devastated. I wanted closure for Kacey, to know she would be okay after all she’d been through. Losing someone is never easy. Losing that one person that gave you hope, completed you, and loved you like no other is unthinkable. And no one can be okay with that kind of loss. Kacey is not okay.
Theo, or Teddy as I now refer to him, is Jonah’s brother. In Full Tilt, I had mixed emotions about Teddy. When I saw that this book was going to be about him and Kacey was I was a nervous wreck. How was this going to work? Would I be okay with how this turned out? I was more than okay with it. Teddy is so much more than I thought he was. So much more amazing than I ever gave him credit for. That man has a heart so big, and I didn’t see it. Not at first. Not completely. Now I do, and there is no going back. Teddy will capture your heart. I loved seeing him with a new set of eyes. He totally made this book for me.
Now back to Kacey. Kacey is not in a good place. Grief has taken over her life. But Teddy is there for her. To be her friend. To listen. To help her in anyway he can. Kacey also had other friends to help her along the way. I loved all the new characters that were introduced. They were truly special. But none of them as special as Teddy.
This story had moments that were devastating. It also had moments that brought me hope and gave me peace. As I said earlier, I cried through the entire book. Just when I thought my tears had dried, something would happen, a memory would come back, and just like that, I’d be in tears again. Not all the tears were sad. Some were happy. I was in emotional overload and I loved every second.
This story is so much more than a romance. It’s a story of friendship, of family, of healing, and love. There are many different kinds of love. This book made me believe that you can truly have two great loves in your life. Everything was full circle by the end of the book and I couldn’t have been happier with how it ended.
Full Tilt and All In will both be towards the top of my 2016 favorites list. These books are so special to me and I can’t recommend them enough! Believe me when I say, these books are MUST READS!
I knew when I downloaded this book I needed to wait for the perfect time to read this book. I needed to read this book when I was alone and could allow my emotions to explode. I knew it was going to emotionally wreck me after reading Full Tilt. I was a blubbering mess and went through a big box of tissues. I felt like I lost one of my own.
A sequel to a book with such a moving story is very hard to follow up. Like the characters in the book, the reader is also afraid to move on and let go. I'm sure it is the same for the writer. Emma Scott did a wonderful job with All In. She took great care with all of the characters without diminishing one moment of the first book, Full Tilt. She wrote a story about real life and very real emotions every human being will experience at some point in their life. She handled each moment and each emotion with great care. That is what makes this duet a 6 Star Publication.
All In begins shortly after Full Tilt ended. After losing Jonah, the Fletcher family, his close friends, and Kacey are buried in their grief. The loss affected everyone quite differently but was felt deeply by all. Even though Jonah left his legacy in the art world, his greatest legacy was the deep abiding love he gave to those he cared most about. He touched each of their souls and left the best part of himself with them. How can they go on after losing a man that touched them so deeply?
Kacey could not handle losing Jonah. Her grief has consumed her. She had to leave Las Vegas because every where she turned she was reminded of Jonah. Instead of embracing the support and sharing her grief, she fled to New Orleans. She has returned to burying herself in the bottle and is back on the path of self destruction. She can't get past the loss, she can't completely grieve because she can't deal with her emotions. Her life is on a downward spiral to rock bottom. Thankfully there are a few caring people in New Orleans that contact Theo Fletcher.
Theo Fletcher is still grieving his brother's death. He has always been the rock in the Fletcher family. He stood by Jonah's side during his illness. He attended every doctors appointment, made sure he followed his health care regimen, and helped him finish the art installation. He's lost without his best friend, his brother Jonah. Now he's going through the motions to fullfill one of Jonah's wishes, to open his own tattoo shop. He's back in school taking business courses. He's also putting up a front for his family and friends. His parents are falling apart. They are both dealing with their grief differently and depending too much on Theo. He keeps his own grief bottled up tight.
When his brother's girlfriend disappeared from Las Vegas, he felt he had broken one his brother's dying wishes. He had promised Jonah that he would take care of Kacey. He also made a promise to love her. His family was devastated to lose Kacey after losing Jonah. When a phone call from New Orleans leads him back to Kacey, Jonah's final gift will be presented to Kacey and Theo. First they have to get past the grief, accept Jonah's death, and learn to live their lives once again. They need to learn to lean on each other and also learn take care of themselves. It's time to heal and live again. Only then will they be ready for Jonah's final gift, the greatest legacy he could leave... the gift of love.
Once again Emma Scott had my full attention and engaged every emotion. I was a blubbering mess and felt I was living my life alongside of Kacey and Theo. I felt their loss, their fear of letting go, and most of all their fear of beginning a new life.
I was All In when I read this book.
Emma Scott is a gifted writer. Her words were more than a story, they were a profound emotional experience.
