And if you haven't read any of Emma's books before, then I highly discourage you from choosing All In as your first one, since it comes after Full Tilt, so start there, because this book duet should not be overlooked. I think stories like this can be tricky or riotous for the emotions and I often find myself being rather obstinate about where I stand in these particular cases, that it leaves very little leeway for the characters and author to do it justice without me being a little unfair in my judgment, but Emma nails it beautifully. Because when I was done, I didn't doubt the authenticity of anything or anyone. It all felt completely organic with how it was meant to be without diminishing other aspects.
***Caution - contains spoilers for Full Tilt***
Kacey Dawson is struggling and drowning in her grief. And I really empathized with her, feeling the sadness every time she would reach for the orb that Jonah gave her as she fought to survive while clinging to his memory. Because who didn't absolutely love and adore every bit of Jonah and what he represented? And then there is Theo Fletcher, the other person who is equally overwhelmed by loss, but continues to get through each day with worries and potential broken promises burdening him.
When Theo first appeared in Full Tilt, my immediate thought was, "he is most definitely Kacey's type and perfect match" even if he didn't act much like it initially. Theo gives off the vibe that he can't be penetrated emotionally, has a bit of a shadow overhanging him and seems wary of excess attention or praise due to a vulnerability that he hates to acknowledge. However, Theo is truly one of the best guys out there when he cares about someone because there isn't anything he wouldn't do for that person, including sacrifice his own happiness. Theo is my favorite character out of everyone because he represents a certain kind of complexity with flaws that I can appreciate and love no matter what.
All the potential obstacles between Kacey and Theo are addressed, on top of their own personal issues that they deal with and are handled with a delicate finesse. A relationship isn't just about 2 people forming a bond, it also includes the others whom they interact with and contributed to shaping them into who they are now. I didn't really get too overwrought about the ending of Full Tilt because it wasn't over yet, but All In dragged out those emotions from me that included the ones for Full Tilt, because of the permanency and the legacy, and it was all consuming. And to see the people that Kacey and Theo become as a result of their experiences, grief and growth is a fantastic and satisfying journey. Loved this book and the underlying messages!
Full Tilt was Jonah's book and All In was Teddy's. I was very intrigued by Teddy in Full Tilt and I liked him. Knowing how Full Tilt ended and where it would go in All In I wasn't at all frustrated or disappointed. I had already established a connection with Jonah, Kacey and Teddy so I was very excited to see how Emma Scott would make that constellation happen and how. She succeeded in doing that flawlessly. The foundation of Kacey and Teddy's friendship was so well written and done with such an ease. The development from friends to lovers felt organic and never forced. Just right.
Their journey towards acceptance of Jonah's death was excruciatingly painful at times, raw but also beautifully honest in how they both handled grief. Cause man did Kacey and Teddy grieve. She was numbing herself with booze and Teddy with work, helping/pleasing others and neglecting himself and his wants/needs in life. Kacey slowly started to let go of her grief because of Teddy and his unconditional support. How they found solace in one another, how their friendship grew to more was so beautifully written. It felt real, believable and I was anticipating it. Couldn't contain my excitement.
Teddy definitely stole the show. I liked him in Full Tilt and I loved him fiercely in All In. He hid so much of himself in Full Tilt and here in All In he let it all out. It was the little things that moved me and showed who Teddy really was. In words but most certainly also in his actions. For example when a drunk guy was hitting on Kacey and Teddy demanded an apology for Kacey. Not for him but Kacey. He truly was the rock everybody leaned on and how he loved Jonah and Kacey was intoxicating and heartbreaking. He was so patient, loyal and respectful towards Jonah's memory and Kacey who once again surprised me with her strength. She was a fighter and once she embraced the gift Jonah gave her she went all out and loved Teddy with her entire being.
There was so much love, hope and light in All In. Also some very sexy times. A certain dance scene between Kacey and Teddy will stay with me for its seductive writing and build up. It was so sexy, I could feel every word like they crawled under my skin. Hitting me right where they were intended:) The build up between them and the release was explosive. Magnificent!
All In delivered everything and so much more. I'm so satisfied and content with the conclusion to Kacey and Teddy's story. Emma Scott creates magic with words and she definitely put me under a spell. I read to escape, to be captured by the characters and their story. She succeeded again with All In and she did it so effortlessly and in such an intelligent way that I'm at a loss for words. My heart and soul is filled and sings with love. All In is a must read!
