“I would love you forever, if I only had the chance…”

Kacey Dawson has always lived life on the edge–impulsively, sometimes recklessly. And now, as lead guitarist for a hot up-and-coming band, she is poised at the brink of fame and fortune. But she is torn between wanting to be a serious musician, and the demons that lure her down the glittering, but alcohol-soaked path of rock stardom. A wrecked concert in Las Vegas threatens to ruin her career entirely. She wakes up with the hangover from hell and no memory of the night before, or how she ended up on her limo driver’s couch…

Jonah Fletcher is running out of time. He knows his situation is hopeless, and he’s vowed to make the most of the handful of months he has left to him. His plans include seeing the opening of his glass installation at a prestigious art gallery…they do not include falling in love with a wild, tempestuous rock musician who wound up passed out on his couch.

Jonah sees that Kacey is on a path to self-destruction. He lets her crash with him for a few days to dry out and get her head on straight. But neither of them expected the deep connection they felt, or how that connection could grow so fast from friendship into something more. Something deep and pure and life-changing…something as fragile as glass, that they both know will shatter in the end no matter how hard they try to hold on to it.

Full Tilt is a story about what it means to love with your whole heart, to sacrifice, to experience terrible grief and soaring joy. To live life with all its beauty, and all its pain, and in the end to be able to smile through tears and know you wouldn’t have changed a thing.

All In (Full Tilt #2) forthcoming…

The thing that first caught my eye with Full Tilt was its gorgeous cover. The colors and design were so beautiful that I had to check out the synopsis. Once I read the blurb, especially that last paragraph, I had to read this book. I knew Full Tilt would touch my soul, and it did. The the story was just as beautiful as the cover.

The synopsis for Full Tilt sums this story up perfectly. It’s about two people facing two very different obstacles in life that bring them together. Jonah and Kasey’s connection brings them a joy neither of them has ever known before. It also brings them expected heartbreak.

Jonah and Kasey’s story was an emotional one to read. I loved both of them so much! Even though I felt like I knew where their story was headed the entire time, I wasn’t prepared for all the emotions I felt. There were happy parts that made me smile and laugh. There were sad parts that made me bawl. I just felt so much reading this book!

I loved every minute of reading Full Tilt. It was a touching and inspiration story that was so well written. I highly recommend it to readers who love books that give them “the feels”. I can’t wait to begin the second book, All In and see what’s next in the Full Tilt world.
