#AvailableNow #FiveBlushReview #UpAllNightReading ~~ Long Live the Beautiful Hearts by Emma Scott #5BlushAlert
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
CHRISTINA’S ALL THE STARS REVIEW
It’s been a really long time since I’ve read a book, or duet, that has affected me so completely as this one. I’m finding myself at a loss as to how to write a review that could possibly convey how I feel about this book, or how much I fell so totally in love with everything about it. But I’m going to try.
“Love. Everything, everywhere.” The perfect quote to illustrate how I felt the moment I finished the book. Just LOVE. Love ALL THE THINGS. From the fabulous writing, to the memorable characters, to the gorgeous poetry, Emma Scott serves up a story so perfect you can’t help but fall in love, even as it’s breaking your heart. I can’t begin to convey the level of FEELS coursing through my soul as I read this book. I won’t divulge the plot line, I wouldn’t dare ruin this story for you. It’s just that good that you could go in completely blind (starting with Bring Down the Stars). Weston and Autumn and Connor are characters I will never ever forget.
This story was so DIFFERENT than everything I’ve been reading lately and I devoured it in under 24 hours, literally unable to put it down. I could have kept reading if the story hadn’t ended. I gobbled the first half of the book like a starved woman, but savored the second half as if it were a decadent piece of dark chocolate, rich and satisfying.
I would be remiss if I didn’t specifically mention the writing. It’s some of the best I’ve ever read. The poetry, the symbolism, the emotion so raw and honest bring this story and these charterers to life in a way that I haven’t experienced in a long time. I’ve forgotten what it feels like to read a book like this and realize it’s one of the best I’ve ever read.
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.
