Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Last Piece of His Heart, by Emma Scott

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.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Oh my goodness! The last book in the Lost Boys series was just as angsty, beautiful and emotional as the others! Since the timeline of all three Lost Boys books overlap, there were some nuggets previously dropped about Shiloh and Ronan… and gah! This story was worth the wait.

Ronan has had a hell of a life. Bounced from foster home to foster home, he never found a place he fit in until he met Shiloh. The scars of his past have made Ronan a bit of a recluse — or the vampire of the Lost Boys in Santa Cruz— but he is a fierce, fierce protector when it comes to those he cares about. Miller, Hunter and Shiloh especially! Meanwhile, Shiloh is determined to make her jewelry store dream come true, to prove to herself (and the mother who seems to hate the sight of her), that she has a life worth living.

Ronan and Shiloh’s relationship is a slow burn as they go from friends to more, but because Ronan has this deep need to protect her, and for a good cause, their relationship is kept in the shadows. Once they do go public, everything that he feared would happen does, and it literally tears them apart for years.

The last few chapters of this story are especially amazing. After all that Shiloh and Ronan go through, I was so happy to see them get a happy ending. The reveal of why Shiloh and her mom’s relationship is so fractured was a gut wrenching scene. But I am so happy with the way Emma Scott repaired that relationship and how much of a presence Marie became in Shiloh’s life afterwards!

And that final scene with the three Lost Boys… I cried. Ugly fat tears that I had to keep clearing from my eyes. The lost boys and their created family… this series was epic. And I won’t forget it.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
