I've looked forward to this book for months after reading Full Tilt, my first book from this author. I read after I heard great reviews and snippets of lines from the book. I'm a sucker for ugly cry. I just want to dive in and pour my emotions from the words that could capture me and Full Tilt had done that. I thought Full Tilt was a complete anti-hea. It broke my heart on how a love so pure and honest could end like that. It was short but it was a love that could write off love stories that lasts a lifetime...until the end and there was Theo.
I closed my kindle. Hugged it and saw hope amidst all the tears. I saw hope and was intigued. Theo. I went back to Full Tilt to check if there was something that I missed. Wished for months for the second book to come out to finally answer all my questions and to know their story.
I was still in the first few pages and it brought me back suddenly, even after months have passed. And realised that there was another universe at work waiting to merge into one as those moments were happening.
I cried and hoped. Begged and begged for Kacey and Theo to finally break through the surface from the darkness that Jonah had not wanted them to have. And they did.
"Love had no end. She was infinite. She was a universe, my universe, and I was hers. Love had no boundaries, no rules, no favorites. And no limits."
Kacey and Theo's story was not unique as with all love stories. But the journey and the words that Emma Scott has used could take you to their world. Make you feel. Literally feel the tightness in your chest as they fought to be together. Make you see the "cataclysmic alteration" of the universe as it shifted to create Kacey and Theo's story.
"...I didn’t see her much after that night. I was trying to cope with my grief but my true feelings for Kacey kept getting in the way. How do you console a woman over the loss of her man when you wished—with every particle of your body—she’d someday feel that deeply about you?"
I love this book so much with passion I could still feel it in my heart the angst and tears it has brought. This book brought closure. From Jonah to Theo who put it "All in" to complete the circle. Bringing them all together. Just like the orb that captured the beauty of the universe. No more darkness. What is left are the "stars twinkling like diamonds in the depths of space."
Pure happiness. I love a happily ever after. ❤❤❤
But I seriously underestimated Emma’s writing, because she has indeed topped it! Well maybe not topped it, but definitely has put it on par!
“All In” has picked up exactly where Full Tilt left us, with our hearts reeling at the loss of Jonah. Wondering how on earth anyone can move forward after the loss of such true love.
Yet again, these characters are inspiring and full of love and hope. They are strong, courageous and real.
And yet again, my tears flowed throughout this book. Emma’s writing has found a way to make me cry at things I never thought I would! And like the first book in this series, I wish I could go back and read it for the first time all over again.
It is a definite re-read book/series and one of my most favourite series I have ever read. Emma is certainly one of the authors to now sit on my “list”, where I just purchase and read; without even wondering what the book is about.
I will be forever grateful that I have read this series and it will sit heavy on my heart for quite some time, I’m sure.
ALL IN by Emma Scott
5 starts but it isn't enough!!!
Omg this is one of the most amazing books I have ever read! Emma Scott is simply amazing!
After reading Full Tilt, loving it beyond words and having my heart broken I wasn't sure how All in would make me feel!
It broke my heart all over again but it also made me smile, gave me goosebumps and made me want to live more. If a book can make you feel that way it's in a whole other league of its own.
There's was just so much emotion it's hard to put it in to words just how much love I felt for Kacey and Theo. I really didn't want the story to end but also craved the happily ever after these two deserved and Emma you did that! You have them the happily ever after they both needed and deserved!
Kacey was so broken, after finally finding peace with Jonah to then have everything torn away. Kacey was left numb and broken. Jonah and Kasey had become each other's lifeline and that lifeline was suddenly torn away from her.
Theo was so lost without his brother, they had such an amazing connection there was bound to be a void in Theo's heart when Jonah finally let go. Theo always took care of others first Jonah, his mother and Kasey. With Kasey finally Theo find comfort and peace.
Kacey and Theo both made promises to Jonah before he took his final breath and both find it agonisingly difficult to carry on without him. Leaning on each other as well as friends they find their way through the pain and loss and can finally see a life without Jonah.
I love that Jonah's work makes such an important place in their life's and will carry on for years to come. Jonah's art in glass will forever live on.
The emotion in this book is absolutely incredible!
One of my favourite lines in the whole book "Love has no boundaries, no rules, no favourites. And no limits"
Emma Scott you have done justice to Jonah and his memory in Full Tilt. All in made me love Theo and Kasey more and more and created a new story that will forever hold a place in my heart!
I'm so pleased there was peace in the end amongst family and friends. Life really is to short.
This book is so amazing! It deserves all the stars in the night sky! Honestly 5 stars isn't enough!
This ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review.
There were no real surprises and it was a little predictable.

After Kacey disappears and the rest of the family falls apart, Theo finally receives word 6 months later from a worried colleague that Kacey is in New Orleans and needs help. He drops everything to get to her and reach out a hand. This meeting starts a very slow process of healing for them both and Jonah’s family.
I love how Kacey and Theo’s relationship develops slowly over thousands of hours on the phone. I also like how Kacey manages to pick herself up with support of her new friends in New Orleans and Theo over the phone and a few trips to visit.
The author manages to convey the beauty of both Las Vegas and New Orleans, both very different cities. I always enjoy it when an author helps me understand the environment the characters live in because your surroundings definitely help shape your state of mind and New Orleans is a place of healing for Kacey.
I would recommend you get your box of tissues ready whilst reading this book. It’s almost as much of a tear jerker as the first, but not quite. Only read this if you are in need of an emotional release. This is a not a cheerful easy read, but it is a very satisfying one that helps you feel lighter for having read it. I will definitely be looking out for this author again, but maybe after lockdown ends!
Emma Scott has the ability to take you on an emotional ride with her writing as not many authors can. You laugh with the characters, you feel hurt and joy, loneliness and desperation, you suffer, you cry (a lot), you love. You feel everything they do; you are them!
This is the magic of Emma's writing. It gives you a piece of fiction in all its tragedy and beauty and makes it your own reality for the time reading and as long as you fall back into the story afterwards.
The following gives a little bit away what happens. I DON'T call it a spoiler as the blurb is telling you already what this second book is about. I won't say much more but if you don't want to know any details just go in and trust that you will not be disappointed. There was only one believable ending and Emma found it!
Unimaginable grief of a woman who lost the love of her life by far too early and a brother who lost more than the older brother. Our hearts broke in FULL TILT and still hurt in ALL IN. You feel sorry for Theo and Kacey, you still love her (from the first book) and fall in love with him. Theo is so strong but so vulnerable... You admire both for different reasons. You accompany them on their stony way through grief. With begin of this story you ask yourself how Kacey will overcome the deep loss and ever will find love again after having given her whole heart to Jonah. There is nothing left to give, you feel. Emma Scott shows you that there is the chance of a second love of your life, a different one but nothing less in its depth.
For me the beauty of this second book - besides the style of writing, the wording which touches you deeply - is that it shows you the slow growth of love out of the togetherness in grief and desperation, friendship and understanding. Who else would understand Kacey better than a man who loved Jonah as much as she did. There was only one possible way this story could find a believable ending, an ending which allowed new love to grow without giving up the old one. They are not competing but standing next to each other, each as beautiful as the other.
Theo broke my heart, I cried so much through this book not only because I was still trying to come to terms with what happened in Full Tilt, but experiencing what Theo and Kacey were going through. It hurt, it really, really HURT at times. I don't think I've ever read a book that has wreaked such havoc on my heart and feelings.
The epilogues were fantastic, the first one took my breath away with it's simplicity that conveyed everything it needed to.
Like I said already, this was an exquisite read. Poignant, bittersweet, tender, phenomenal, full of acceptance and healing and most of all love. And I adored every single world rocking word.
5+++++ stars for the duet
I do not want to spoil this for anyone. Giving too much away will spoil the ending of the first part of this incredible duet and I hate spoilers.
All I will say is that your heart will end up glued back together, full and beating fast, once you've read this story.
Theo. Theo. Theo: just the perfect medicine for all the hurt from Full Tilt.
As always, Emma whisked me away from normality and left me gagging for more of her exquisite storytelling.
Thank you for this next installemenr. I forgive you for Jonah. Almost... :)
