Series: Beautiful Hearts Duet #2
Published by Self-Published on 10/15/2018
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.
Emma Scott is my go-to author for romance novels that are thoughtful, intelligent, insightful and emotional. She writes exceptional characters and they quietly steal my heart time and again. As I finish this beautiful duet I find myself shaken emotionally yet renewed and filled with hope.
Long Live the Beautiful Hearts was everything I hoped that it would be. Emma’s writing gets me every time and I find her prose to be very addictive. It isn’t pushy or very extravagant but I’ve read so many Scott books that her words have come to be somewhat of a comfort for me; like a warm blanket. How cliché, but it is the absolute truth.
I did enjoy the way this story concluded howeverrrr…there was one little plot point that I thought was a bit, convenient? I think I’m feeling a bit undecided as to whether or not this choice is truly complementary to the character and their motives. Also, there were some moments near the end that caused me to briefly pause or took me out of a scene. I do think though that author intent might trump any disconnect I’ve experienced, or at least that is what I’ve convinced myself of.
I will absolutely recommend this duet to every romance lover I know. A must read!
