Description

At age fourteen, Zelda Rossi witnessed the unthinkable, and has spent the last ten years hardening her heart against the guilt and grief. She channels her pain into her art: a dystopian graphic novel where vigilantes travel back in time to stop heinous crimes—like child abduction—before they happen. Zelda pitches her graphic novel to several big-time comic book publishers in New York City, only to have her hopes crash and burn. Circumstances leave her stranded in an unfamiliar city, and in an embarrassing moment of weakness, she meets a guarded young man with a past he'd do anything to change . . .

Beckett Copeland spent two years in prison for armed robbery, and is now struggling to keep his head above water. A bike messenger by day, he speeds around New York City, riding fast and hard but going nowhere, his criminal record holding him back almost as much as the guilt of his crime.

Zelda and Beckett form a grudging alliance of survival, and in between their stubborn clash of wills, they slowly begin to provide each other with the warmth of forgiveness, healing, and maybe even love.

Contains mature themes.

À propos de l'auteur

Emma Scott is a writer, marathon runner, and caffeine addict, who lives and writes in the California Bay Area. She has two smart, feisty little girls, a super-supportive husband, and is a demonstrated fan of the Oxford comma. She is also an unabashed Star Wars geek and comic book enthusiast who fell into romance writing when a writing contest prompt turned a 1000-word flash story into a full-blown novel. She also writes epic fantasy that suffers an epic word count.She hopes you enjoy her work, encourages readers to leave feedback, and thinks it's amusing to write about herself in the third person.My fifth novel is a standalone second chance New Adult romance with shades of the paranormal, and will be released Feb 9 2016.Happy reading!

    *Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for an e-copy in exchange for an honest review.*Actual Rating: 4This was SO cute.The story is written from alternating perspectives. There's Zelda Rossi, who was fourteen when it happened, and she was never the same again. But she channels her anger and grief into her graphic novel. The same graphic novel that was rejected by several comic book publishers, dashing every dream she ever had. Then there's Beckett Copeland. He's still on probation for an armed robbery that sent him to prison for two years, and he's struggling to keep his life together. It's a bit difficult when a criminal is the only thing he feels like he will ever be. Long story short, Zelda needs a place to stay. And Beckett's got a bit of room to spare.This was amazing. I loved the characters, and they were even better together. To be honest, I wasn't too sure what I was expecting when I opened it up - the cover isn't really what the typically contemporary romance has. But nevertheless, this was a really quick read, with just the right blend of heartache and happiness.The graphic novel aspect of this book was a delightful plus as well - there are some scenes from Zelda as well, and it was pretty cool to be able to imagine that there was another story within the story.Nothing about the plot was really surprising; I thought it was pretty predictable, which is why I couldn't give this a full five stars. Nevertheless, it was really a touching story, and I loved that there were subplots - even for the minor characters, which made the book a lot more realistic.The idea for it is really amazing, and it goes back to something I'd always been interested in: the butterfly effect, or the idea that a butterfly's tiny wings could create changes in the atmosphere. As a metaphor, it refers to how little actions can have large effects - something I think this book expressed beautifully.

    The Full Tilt duet from this author is one of my favorites of all time, so I couldn't wait to read this book. I love second chance stories and this was a great one. I absolutely loved Zelda and Beckett. They were hilarious together and I was fully invested in every part of each of their stories and their stories together. Emma Scott has a way of writing the most endearing characters that you fall in love with. I will read anything this author writes. I have loved everything I've picked up from her so far and I couldn't put this book down.

    This was promising. A tad melodramatic and all those bits of hope and change you would find in a Nicholas Sparks novel.

    For the genre, I thought the characters were written well. the story was nicely fleshed out, and it had a lot to offer. It is a bit of a diamond in the rough for me as a reader who isn't a big fan of romances, but is dipping her toes in to push against my comfort zone. The characters in this story were not abusive or manipulative, and the plot didn't have to take a backseat. Not bad. I will probably pick up another Emma Scott in the future.
