The Last Piece of His Heart ~ Emma Scott ~ New Release & Review

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.

Elizabeth's Review

4.5 stars - One of the Best

Review Copy Provided by Author

Sometimes I think the more I love a book, the harder it is to write a review about it - and that is true with The Last Piece of His Heart. There are so many things I want to say about this book, but at the same time I don’t want to give anything away.

This is the third book in the Lost Boys series and focuses on Ronan - the mysterious friend we’ve seen in the first two books. Ms Scott does and excellent job of letting us see behind the tough guy facade to the person Ronan really is and who he is trying to be. He is paired with Shilo - another character we’ve seen before, but haven’t really gotten to know well until now. Both Ronan and Shilo are complex, well developed characters who carry wounds and baggage that make them seem much older than 18 or 19 years old.

Ronan and Shilo have a stories (both individually and together) that were riveting in the growth they showed and in how love and friendship made both of them blossom - even when they didn’t want to. Ms Scott took us on an amazing journey with these two - and once I got started, I didn’t want to put the book down.

As with the other Lost Boys books, Ms Scott does not shy away from tough topics. We see a darker/tougher side of not only high school, but life in general that brings up issues most of us would rather not think about. Hopefully these fictional struggles will help us all be more empathetic in our real lives too.

My one caution to readers about The Last Piece of His Heart would be the fact that it very much contains spoilers for the first two books. The time line here in concurrent with the first two books, so there are some scenes that look familiar just from a different point of view- and if you are reading the series out of order, you may learn things before you are ready. Make sure you start with Miller's story!

Now that we are done with the Lost Boys - I am curious to see where Ms Scott will take us next!
