๏ ๏ ๏ Book Blurb ๏ ๏ ๏
(for book 1, just in case you don't want spoilers)
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.
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 Review ๏ ๏ ๏
This past year I've really become acquainted with the writing of Emma Scott, I've read a total of 4 books by her and I'm planning on at least two more in the near future...she has cemented herself as one of my favorite Authors with this latest book, Long Live the Beautiful Hearts.
This is book 2 of the Beautiful Hearts duet and if this had been one book, it would have been 5 stars easily...as it is with the two books, rounded out (I gave book 1 at 4.3-star rating), it's at about 4.7 or 4.8-star rating. Bring Down the Stars wasn't an easy read for me, see my review here, as it explains it more in depth why that is. This second book, I flew through the pages...because the story felt like it was more on track with where I needed it to be.
A heartbreaking yet ultimately uplifting story of courage and the power of true love. With amazing characters and an amazing storyline, I completely loved this...and I'm not even really upset about this being sectioned into two books anymore because overall the beauty of the story makes up for it. If you're worried that this story is about cheating...don't, it's way deeper than that.
