I fell for Connor Drake. I didn’t want to; I fought against it, but I fell in love with him anyway. With his words. With his poetry. With him. The gentleness and beauty of his soul that speaks directly to mine. He writes as if he can feel my heart, hear its cadence and compose the exact right lyrics to accompany every beat and flow.
I’m in love with Connor…so why do I feel an inexplicable pull to his best friend, Weston? Grouchy, sullen, brooding Weston Turner, who could cut you down with a look. Fiercely intelligent with a razor sharp wit and acid tongue, he’s the exact opposite of Connor in every way, and yet there’s electricity in the air between us. The thorny barbs Weston wraps around himself can’t keep me away.
But the more time I spend with these men, the more tangled and confused my emotions become. When they both sign up for the Army Reserves during a time of increasing strife in the Middle East, I fear I’ll never unravel my own heart that sometimes feels as if it will tear straight down the middle…for both of them.
Bring Down the Stars is an emotional, angst-filled novel of unrequited love by bestselling author, Emma Scott, and is inspired by the classic tale, Cyrano de Bergerac. (Roxanne) It is Book I in the Beautiful Hearts Duet, coming this summer. Book II, Long Live the Beautiful Hearts, to be released a few weeks later. #lovetriangle #confusedhearts #notamenage
5 Star Review by Ashley
I can't....I don't know where to start with this...Maybe the dedication that made my eyes misty. Maybe the way Emma Scott ripped my heart out in the first few pages. Maybe the way I got drop kicked right in the feels. Maybe the way my chest ached the whole way through....
Let me start with Weston. It slayed me that he didn't think he was good enough. The tragedy of his youth put that idea in his head. It was an unlikely friendship that kept him moving. Gave him something to focus on besides the pain in his heart. Connor. Light and smiles and more opportunity than Wes could ever dream of.
Goodness me how I loved Weston. Tough walls with a tender heart and soul. Loyal. Arrogant. Protective. Always pushing himself to be better, be more. It was Autumn who saw that in him. Saw him. And he saw her too. Her ambition. Her kindness. Her intelligence and drive. Her passion. But Connor saw her first....
Connor who wanted to make it work but couldn't get the words right so he turned to his best friend who could always find the words. The angst. Oh the angst! At times it was nearly suffocating. How Weston longed from so close but so far. How Autumn tried and tried to break through to him. When she thought she was getting nowhere but really she was just digging herself deeper into him. And then the turn...
Bring Down the Stars is the epitome of loyalty and longing. Honor and unconditional love. Weston and Connor and Autumn's story had my heart was breaking racing and yearning for something I knew was just getting more and more out of reach of all of them. And that ending- I'm beyond speechless and I need a big hug.
5 Star Review by Brittany
There are honestly no words that can adequately describe this book and how it made me feel. And this book is extra special because not even two months ago, Emma Scott lost her eleven-year-old daughter after she suffered a heart attack due to a rare heart condition. For Emma to be able to publish this so soon after Isabel's death just proves how strong she is. Pushing through her grief, trying to find normalcy.
I love the whole I'm-dating-this-guy-but-I'm-falling-for-his-best-friend trope. Connor is a good guy, he really is, and if he were real, I'd definitely date him. But Weston, my goodness, he's the sweetest, most romantic man in the whole entire world. Connor and Weston are best friends, they have a really strong relationship that you can feel through the pages, and it's the type of relationship where they'd do anything and everything for each other and go everywhere together. So it's only expected that they'll end up dating the same girl.
Except that at the end, things don't go well. Things get real messy and your heart will stop a few times. It's not what I expected at all. In fact, the whole (I'm not sure I can say what it is, because it might be a spoiler) thing that got them to the ending was unexpected. I didn't expect the book to take the turn that it did.
And the preview into the next book... I shouldn't have read it, but I did and now I am very anxious to read the next book. All I want is for all three of them to be happy, and I'm not sure if that's going to happen.
READ THIS BOOK!!! You won't regret it!
5 Star Review by Lorena
Wow, just wow! This book deserves 10 stars all around!
I don't know how to even start my review because I'm still trying to get my thoughts together. This book really blew me away, like literally! I have not read any books by this author but damn, did she impress me immensely with this book. I am so beyond in love with it.
You get the two best friends that fall for the same girl but only one of them can catch her. Autumn seems to have that allure that she doesn't even know she has. But both Connor and Weston are smitten with her. But only one will win her heart.
Connor is easy going, charming and the rich handsome boy, while Weston is the brooding, quiet, wrong side of the tracks handsome boy. I'd be conflicted because they both have excellent qualities, but you can only choose one so who would it be? I honestly, hands down would go for Weston with his poetic self. He knows how to woo a woman.
Connor and Autumn start dating but she feels him completely different at times. Like he's not the same person and she's conflicted. When she starts really getting to know Weston, she starts developing strong feelings for him as well so that puts her in a confused state. Who shall Autumn end up with?
The end really had me balling my eyes out. I mean, I don't think I felt my heart shatter like this in a while. These boys who are now men have enlisted in the army and are now away fighting for our country and putting their lives in danger. But my heart hurts for both of them because not only are they fighting a real war but also the war of love for the same woman.
Weston oh Weston had my heart from the moment he started pouring his poetic words onto paper.
I'm beyond and over the stars with this books. I was smitten from beginning to end and now I am sitting here impatiently awaiting the next book to find out the conclusion.
An emotionally riveting read!
You guys, you seriously need to read this AMAZING book. It is beyond AMAZING actually.
