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.
THIS BOOK IS NOT A STANDALONE. It should not be read without first reading Bring Down the Stars.
5 Star Review by Ashley
I am still holding my chest hours after finishing Long Live the Beautiful Hearts. Emma Scott blew my heart with this book. Thank goodness it picked up right where Bring Down the Stars ended because I had to know what happened.
Everything was hanging in the balance for Connor and Autumn and Weston. It didn't take long for Autumn's already fragile heart to take even more of a beating. But she would not be deterred. She hunkered down and focused on her work. Her mission. Herself. When she got some news, things changed. She knew she had to make an effort to start to heal the broken pieces of her relationship with Weston.
Cue the achingly sweet slow burn. I loved that Autumn saw Weston. His hurt. His pain. His frustration. His bravery. His acceptance of his situation. His determination to not let it define him. His passion reignited. His healing. With that came the rebuilding their friendship. And watching it transform into that thing they had been denying for so long turned my insides to mush. But there was that secret that Wes and Connor were keeping and when it came to light, all the ground that had been built up came crashing down.
I didn't know how much more I could take. How much more Autumn could take. But she is nothing if not strong. She got her answer to her call for truth from the most unlikely of places. It wasn't an easy journey for Autumn. It was hard and painful. Full of half truths and deception. But also full of friendship and so much love. Emma Scott bled her soul into this duet, this book. Long Live the Beautiful Hearts blew my heart and will be there for ages to come.
5 Star Review by Lorena
My heart is still trying to catch up with how beautiful Long Live the Beautiful Hearts was. This was one epic conclusion that will leave you complete and with a happy heart in the end.
Wes, Connor and Autumn were all entangled one way or another. But this book ended exactly how it should have ended. I was #TeamWes since book one and I did not change how I felt when I finished reading Long Live the Beautiful Hearts.
All characters were magnificent in this book and things happened the way they did because that's how it was supposed to happen.
But my heart was always with Wes. He was just a poet and loved to write his feelings on paper and pass them on to the one he loved. After his combat tour in Syria, things definitely changed, and even though his brooding ways were still the same, I loved how he evolved and how he changed throughout this book. He became a completely different person and all with the help of Autumn.
AN EPIC DUET that is definitely going on my BEST of 2018!
5 Star Review by Brittany
The conclusion to Weston and Autumn's story is such a phenomenal read.
But first, I have to say, fuck Connor and fuck Ruby.
Okay, now that that's out the way.
The way that Wes' character changes is beautiful. Their whole story is beautiful. I love them both so much. And I love the reason why Wes is the way he is (which is found in the author's note at the end of the book, but don't read it before hand, it'll spoil it!).
I couldn't put this book down. I was so invested in the story and the characters. They got their happy ending and all is well.
