4.7 Out of 5 "Whirling Ball" Stars
Forever Right Now - Emma Scott




Forever Right Now

Emma Scott



Darlene Montgomery has been to hell and back…more than once. After a stint in jail for drug possession, she is finally clean and ready to start over. Yet another failed relationship is just the motivation she needs to move from New York to San Francisco with the hopes of resurrecting her dance career and discovering that she is more than the sum of her rap sheet. As Darlene struggles in her new city, the last thing she wants is to become entangled with her handsome—but cranky—neighbor and his adorable little girl... 


Sawyer Haas is weeks away from finishing law school, but exhaustion, dwindling finances, and the pressure to provide for himself and his daughter, Olivia, are wearing him down. A federal clerkship--a job he desperately needs--awaits him after graduation, but only if he passes the Bar Exam. Sawyer doesn’t have the time or patience for the capricious—if beautiful—dancer who moves into the apartment above his. But Darlene’s easy laugh and cheerful spirit seep into the cracks of his hardened heart, and slowly break down the walls he’s resurrected to keep from being betrayed ever again. 


When the parents of Olivia’s absentee mother come to fight for custody, Sawyer could lose everything. To have any chance at happiness, he must trust Darlene, the woman who has somehow found her way past his brittle barbs, and Darlene must decide how much of her own bruised heart she is willing to give to Sawyer and Olivia, especially when the ghosts of her troubled past refuse to stay buried.






My second Emma Scott book and I think I've found a New Adult Author that I love.  Her stories are genuine and heartfelt, with no over-the-top drama.  Her characters are the same.  I can't help but advocate for them.  The feels that she invokes for me are indelible, and the best part about her books, no gratuitous sex scenes.


"You get back what you put in.  Negative shit gets you negative shit.  Positive energy begets positive energy.  Whatever you put out there in the universe...it listens.  And then it answers.  So when I talk, I try to give it something it wants to hear and hope it answers with something I want to hear."

In Harmony - Emma Scott
And thus concludes my February reading list. WHEW. Take a breath.

That book was...*eyes search brain for words* long?

Yes, long. It was long, okay? I really loved Full Tilt but part of me wonders if it was just kind of fresh teenaged crush of mine or if it was real, everlasting love.

Emma Scott does angsty plot lines better IMO opinion than a Mia Sheridan or similar. And I was rooting for these two. Really. Broken girl meets broken boy. Both shit families. Different sides of the track. A tale as old as time. It was very sweet, and I did like Isaac as a hero. (And Willow as a heroine) The secondary characters were pretty kick-ass, though I would've loved a decent nice guy vying for Willow as well instead of just douches. I thought the date rape background was actually very excellently done, though maybe at times too much of a focus. So all that said, it was too heavy-handed at times. And at times, it was nicely subtle (if Hamlet talks too fucking much & his fatal flaw was inaction, well, Isaac is the opposite for example). Though that is true, the play off Hamlet (or any other play) became too conveniently parallel, and frankly kind of annoying. Give these guys their own story.

I think you get the picture. I enjoyed the angst-fest, but not too much because some of it was just simply too much. Overall, it was a sweet, diverting read.

Kill Your Darlings (Yellow team)
Meat Camp - J.T. Warren,Scott Nicholson


Adapted from Scott Nicholson’s original horror screenplay.

I hope the movie was better.


A fun story about last chance kids going zombie.

The goat made me laugh.

We never do find out exactly what caused it though.

The moldy biscuits?  Then what about the dog?


Not for the squeamish.

Fun end!
Blue Beetle 18 - Scott Kolins,Christopher Sebela

A sort of slower ending, but one that settles Jaime down, satisfactorily wraps up all the storylines, and leaves one feeling calmer than a cliffhanger, or open-ended finale would have.   Things are wrapped up - at least for now - although Jaime could come back in the future as the Blue Beetle. 


Sad to see this go, but my wallet isn't complaining.   So there's that.
