It's been almost a year since 18-year-old Ella Rodriguez was in a car accident that left her crippled, scarred, and without a mother. After a very difficult recovery, she's been uprooted across the country and forced into the custody of a father that abandoned her when she was a young child. If Ella wants to escape her father's home, and her awful new stepfamily, she must convince her doctors that she's capable, both physically and emotionally, of living on her own.

An intelligent, witty and well crafted adaptation of the fairy tale. It's more than just a modern day fairy tale love story. It's about family, tragedy and healing. It's definitely a MUST READ. And the audiobook version was well Narrated and voice acted.

The first time I met Ian Kemp in the sparkling blue waters of St. Thomas, I was six years old, and we shared a summer beneath the stars. The second time I met Ian Kemp, he was a shell of the boy I once knew. Turbulent and infuriating, he refused my friendship at every turn. Like me, he was a casualty of life’s cruelty, but we were planets apart. We’d both sought refuge on the island, hoping to find our anchor. Instead, we found each other and managed to reclaim our stars...until we both got swept away.

I loved everything about this story. From the book cover, to the style of writing the story and the thought and reading experience it left me behind. Touching, witty, heartbreaking, enlightening, intensely emotional, inspirational, passionate and head over heals romantic. One of the best novels this 2018.

It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there.

I crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident. I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister’s bed - her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should've left... I didn’t. I didn’t jump out. I didn’t get embarrassed. I relaxed. And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved. I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept. The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could've stayed forever, I would have. He became my sanctuary. Because - four hours earlier - my twin sister killed herself.

After reading this book, it kept me thinking the whole time and I even had sleepless nights. Heartbreaking story. Intense and captivating moments. That ending....WOW! A standing ovation. My first read from Tijan and I am so in awe how a great writer she is and story teller. The narrator, Therese Plummer, deserves an award for perfectly voice acting Mackenzie and the the other characters. Awesome and perfect narration. You could feel Tijan's words come alive by the talented narrator.

Thea Landry has always known her place in modern-day society. It's somewhere just above the trash can her mother dumped her in as a newborn, but below the class where much comes easy. With her tattered shoes and bargain-bin clothes, her life has never been full of glamour. So when a rich and charismatic man takes interest, she doesn't fool herself into thinking their encounter is anything more than a one-night stand. Months later, she's kicking herself for not getting his phone number. Or his last name. She's given up hope of seeing him ever again.

From the moment I saw her through the window of her flower shop, something other than darkness took root inside me. Charlie shone like a beacon in a world that had long since lost any light. But she was never meant for me, a man that killed without remorse and collected bounties drenched in blood. I thought staying away would keep her safe, would shield her from me. I was wrong. Danger followed in my wake like death at a slaughter house. I protected her from the threats that circled like black buzzards, kept her safe with kill after kill.

Once upon a time, a girl loved a boy and he loved her back. They lived happily ever after. But our story was never that simple. I loved Josh with all I had, right until the day he left. Now, all these years later, he was back - and wanting me the way I'd always longed for him. Except now, I belonged to someone else. Someone who never left me the way Josh had. I figured that was the end of our story. I couldn't alter the past. I didn't want to rewrite my future.

Well for some, first true loves never dies. The story is interesting. More like second chances at love story. First half of the story is interesting and suspenseful in a way. But then the next half, well...there came a twist and turns in the story. I got lost on the real plot. But it was nicely written and some good dialogs. It's an okay read.

Wren Ballard is trying to find herself. She never expected to be divorced at 27, but now that the court date has passed, it's official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren't. Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.

This is not just an ordinary love story for me. But a whole lot more than that. A novel that will bring home a lot of important lessons about love, life, forgiveness and letting go. A must read for those who want their heartstrings be strung. Beautifully crafted and written.

It was a big lie. The biggest lie she’d ever told. It reverberated through her head as she said it, ringing eerily. “Are you in love with Noah, Mercedes?” Cora asked. “I mean...I know you love him. You’ve been friends forever. We all have. But are you in love with him?” If it had been anyone else - anyone - Mercedes would have stuck out her chest, folded her skinny arms, and let her feelings be known. She would have claimed him. But it was Cora. Brave, beautiful, broken Cora, and Cora loved Noah too. So Mercedes lied. And with that lie, she lost him. This is the tale of the girl who didn’t get the guy.

I read the book and I loved it. getting the audiobook edition, listening to it made me fall all over again for this novel in a really deeper way. I loved the characters. Especially Mercedes. And the narration/voice acting did a really good job putting life to the characters. I loved the story and enjoyed listening to this audiobook.

"FULL TILT DUET Books 1 & 2" deserves all the ☆'s in the Universe!
This sequel to Full Tilt, ALL IN starts with 
an intense Prologue that gives you no time to relieve yourself from the powerful emotion the first book left behind. This book guarantees you to FEEL in the deepest possible way, to surrender your emotional side, let go of tears as you read. It's as beautiful, heartwrecking and heartwarming of a love story as the the first part. And what was left behind after that gutting goodbye. Now, the characters have to deal the void that was left behind. The healing process and dealing with it is very strong to be felt in this story. The acceptance and letting go of the past. The memories that once gives heartbreak transforms into memories to be cherished. That letting go doesn't mean forgetting. But allowing new doors to be and let open to a new start of life and love. The universe is neverending. It is limitless. Just like love.
This is probably the BEST of all Emma Scott's Masterpieces. For me, this Duet Series tops them all. And I can confidently say, the best of all novels in its genre I have ever read. Like if somebody asks me what is your favorite romance novel, I need not think twice and I could see FULL TILT and ALL IN flashing before my eyes and in a heartbeat.
Emma Scott, I am speechless. I have no words, just awe of your work.
