If you haven’t read Full Tilt, than this review isn’t for you (unless if you want spoilers). I’m glad Full Tilt didn’t end after the first book and that we get a conclusion to the story.
Kacey is not okay after losing Jonah. Losing someone is never easy, especially when that one person gave you hope and loved you completely.
Theo or Teddy (like Kacey likes to call him) is Jonah’s brother. Teddy has such a big heart and there is so much more to him than what we saw in Full Tilt. you really begin to see Teddy with a new set of eyes and he quickly became one of my favourites.
Grief has taken over Kacey’s life and she’s struggling. But Teddy is there for her. He is there to be her friend, listen and give her comfort. As they both know what it’s like to lose Jonah. He is there to help in any way he can. Teddy becomes the most special person in her life and her best-friend.
“I don’t know,” I said. “Slowly. Over fifteen hundred miles and a thousand phone calls. Neither expected it. Neither pursued it. I had so many dark days when I thought I’d never love again. But Jonah told me I would. And I have. I just never thought it would be Teddy.” I smiled. “Only now, I think it couldn’t have been anyone but him.”
There were many moments that were devastating and heartbreaking. But there were also many moments that were heartwarming and everything was full of emotion. The story encompasses love, friendship, family and healing after loss. Everything came full circle in the end and I was more than happy with how it ended. Emma Scott never fails to amaze me. Another amazing read.
