A Five-Minute Life, an all-new standalone new adult romance by International bestselling author Emma Scott is Live!
Christina’s 5 Blush Up All Night Review
This book is absolutely beautiful. From the tragic and heartbreaking first half, A Five Minute Life drew me in and held me captive until the very last word. From the moment we meet the enigmatic Thea and quietly strong Jimmy, all the way until the end of the second epilogue (that’s right babes, we get TWO), I was a prisoner to these gorgeous words Emma Scott has splattered all over the pages. I spent the majority of my Mother’s Day on the couch reading this book because I just had to know how it ended. That doesn’t mean I rushed through it. No no. I savored this book. Like the first sip of an iced cold latte on a brutally hot summer day, I relished in the richness of this breathtaking little story.
These characters are two of the most unique I’ve ever read. And I’ve certainly never experienced this storyline before. It’s a unique trope. At first I wasn’t sure how it was going to work. The blurb leaves much to be desired. I shouldn’t have worried. The way this book comes together is a little like magic, and whole lot like Emma Scott. It’s everything we love about her writing: a unique storyline, unforgettable characters with new and distinct voices, swoony and sexy and filled to the brim with moments that just makes you smile and your heart beat just a little faster. One of my favorite parts of this book was not only did we get this amazing story of a woman who’s memory resets every 5 minutes and the man who falls in love with her, but we also get this subplot full of beautiful art which adds so much color to the lives of these brilliant characters. Jimmy is an amazing hero but Thea, Thea takes the reader-favorite description “strong heroine” to a whole new level. I absolutely loved her. She’s one of my favorite heroines I’ve read in 2019. Creative, energetic, optimistic, strong, fun-loving. All words I would use to describe Thea and I truly loved reading her.
I cannot say enough about this book. But before I say too much, just go read it. You’re going to love it!
Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.
A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.
Jim Whelan is on autopilot.
A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.
Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.
When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.
A stand-alone, new adult romance.
