NEW REVIEW: The Last Piece of His Heart by Emma Scott


 I've been curious about the story of Ronan and Shiloh since book one of The Lost Boys series--they always seemed a little chummy and I just knew their story had to be a good one (as all of the stories in this series have been) and I wasn't wrong. 

The story of Ronan and Shiloh was absolutely agonizing to the best way. The push and pull between them; the lust and denial and rejection and inability to stay away just built and built until Emma Scott finally relented and let them have each other. THANK GOD she did it when she did because I don't know how much longer I could've hung in there waiting for these two to get their shit together. Their collective story was a good one but their individual stories were powerful. Both of them had such sad family histories and while Shiloh had a great support system (Ronan, really did not), it didn't negate the sadness of her situation. I was completely emotionally invested by how hard both of them fought to have what they wanted and found myself tearful when things felt like they were falling apart, right when things were supposed to be going so right. The closer I got to the ending the more I felt hopeful and desperate for the happily ever after I knew was coming and when it came? The happiness and relief I felt were almost palpable. 

In addition to Ronan and Shiloh, seeing Miller and Holden and their significant others was a nice finishing touch..a nice farewell to the series. While I'd love to see Emma Scott revisit them all one day, I also felt the ending was really well done and it felt finished. I really enjoyed this entire series, even when it killed me, sometimes, to read it. I have no idea what Emma Scott is doing next but I know I will be eager to read it when it's time. 

From USA Today and Wall St. Journal bestselling author, Emma Scott, comes the third and final novel in the Lost Boys series--a gritty, angsty love story about two lost souls searching for their place in the world, and what it means to be truly found.

The Last Piece of His Heart by Emma Scott is now live!

At Santa Cruz Central High School, they called them the misfits, the outcasts, the weirdos. But most of us knew them as the Lost Boys...

Ronan Wentz has been to hell and back, and he carries the scars to prove it. Worse, the blood of a monster runs through his veins. After ten years in foster care, eighteen-year-old Ronan is finally reunited with family. His uncle gives him a roof over his head and puts him to work, managing a shabby apartment complex in Santa Cruz, California.

But a second chance is still a second chance. Ronan becomes a solitary hunter, a vigilante, walking the streets at night to keep the nightmares at bay. If he can use the anger burning in his tainted blood to protect instead of hurt, maybe then he'll find the absolution he seeks.

Then he meets Shiloh.

Shiloh Barrera looks like she has it all together. Smart, ambitious and full of artistic creativity she channels into making beautiful one-of-kind jewelry. But Shiloh's cool, capable demeanor is all a front. Her demons drive her to succeed as much as her ambition. To prove her worth to the mother who can't stand to look at her, and who's harboring secrets of her own.

When Shiloh and Ronan meet, the physical attraction is instant and scorching. Neither believe it will last. Falling in love is an impossible pipe dream saved for those less shattered and damaged than they are.

But as hard as they try to resist, the growing feelings between them seem inevitable... until one terrible night destroys Shiloh's dreams and Ronan's future. When the smoke clears, and the rubble settles, they'll have to choose - do their pasts determine their future, or can they build a new one from the broken pieces of their hearts?

Lost Boys is a new series of interconnected, coming-of-age standalones from USA Today bestselling author Emma Scott.
