Book Review: LONG LIVE THE BEAUTIFUL HEARTS by Emma Scott

             



   


 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.

MY THOUGHTS

LONG LIVE THE BEAUTIFUL HEARTS is the second book in Emma Scott’s Beautiful Hearts duet.  I’ll admit that I had no idea where the story would go after the dramatic cliffhanger in the previous book and I was eager to continue this story.

This book is as moving as BRING DOWN THE STARS but Emma Scott decided to push s different set  of my emotional buttons because clearly it wasn’t enough the first time around. I found much of the tension between Autumn, Weston and Connor had dissipated. The now focus turns inward as each of them are trying to come to terms with traumatic events in their lives. For Wes and Connor, it’s learning to live after seeing and experiencing the ravages of war. For Autumn, it’s about building a new foundation and finding purpose in her life.

It was definitely a rollercoaster of a journey and while I sympathised and empathised with the main characters, I still felt anger for some of their actions as well as anger for some of the secondary characters. Frankly, they were more forgiving than I would have been.

The story is well paced and beautifully written. The poetry is simultaneously uplifting and heartbreaking. Emma Scott certainly has a way with words. I highly recommend this duet.

*****
BRING DOWN THE STARS (Book One)

  



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.
