Thank you so much to Emma Scott and Inkslinger PR for the advance copy of Long Live the Beautiful Hearts.
Long Live the Beautiful Hearts went live early so make sure you pick it up right now!
I need to preface this review by saying that YOU MUST READ BOOK ONE FIRST! The first book Bring Down the Stars, which I have previously reviewed is an amazing book. You must start there if you start with the sequel you ruin the ending of the first story and you wouldn’t want to do that.
From Goodreads: “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.
Long Live the Beautiful Hearts is the emotional, heart-wrenching conclusion to the Beautiful Hearts Duet by bestselling author, Emma Scott, and is inspired by the classic tale, Cyrano de Bergerac. (Roxanne) THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL LOVE TRIANGLE #confusedhearts #notamenage
THIS BOOK IS NOT A STANDALONE. It should not be read without first reading Bring Down the Stars”
My thoughts below as always will be spoiler free…
- Characters: I was worried after all the development our trio went on over the course of the first book that those who appear in the sequel would not see a development comparable. Instead in this story are some of the best examples of character development I have seen in NA.
- World/Setting: Mostly the Boston area, I don’t want to spoil if the characters go anywhere else. The connections made with setting near the end of the book are wonderful.
- Pacing: I devoured this one, I just did not want to stop reading it. The pacing is a big part of that, I just keep wanting more and more.
- Romance (yay or nay?): Again cause of spoilers I will be careful here. All the relationships built and strengthened in this sequel were done carefully and considerately. Such beautiful HEAs and payoffs.
Naturally, another 5 stars for Emma Scott. She’s the queen of the emotional and crying your eyes out.
