I found this through a facebook ad for the 4th and final book of the series. I’m normally not interested in military romances, but the description for the 4th book sounded really good so I had to start from the beginning, and I am SO glad I did! This book was amazing and I have fallen in love with these characters!
Goodreads Book Description
“Three knocks can change everything…
“She knew. That’s why Mom hadn’t opened the door. She knew he was dead.”
Twenty years as an army brat and Ember Howard knew, too. The soldiers at the door meant her dad was never coming home. What she didn’t know was how she would find the strength to singlehandedly care for her crumbling family when her mom falls apart.
Then Josh Walker enters her life. Hockey star, her new next-door neighbor, and not to mention the most delicious hands that insist on saving her over and over again. He has a way of erasing the pain with a single look, a single touch. As much as she wants to turn off her feelings and endure the heartache on her own, she can’t deny their intense attraction.
Until Josh’s secret shatters their world. And Ember must decide if he’s worth the risk that comes with loving a man who could strip her bare.”
This book………. wow…….. so many emotions! I was all over the place with this book, and I enjoyed every minute of it. Rebecca Yarros has such an amazing way with character development. I fell in love with Josh and Ember, and some parts just tore my heart right out.
December Howard is an Army brat. Her dad was a military doctor and was killed in action while in Afghanistan. When her mom starts to fall to pieces, December is the one to hold the family together and take care of her 2 younger siblings.
Josh Walker was the star hockey player back in high school. He was a few years ahead of December, but he always remembered her. When he sees December falling apart at the store he knows he has to save her, but it’s not easy when she keeps pushing away.
Slowly Josh starts to break down Embers walls brick by brick and she slowly starts to let him in, but he has a secret that he knows will break her if she finds out. What will happen when she does? READ THIS BOOK!!!!!! IT’S AMAZING!!!!!
These characters…… Josh just blew me away. I don’t want to say anything about his backstory because of spoilers, but his character just felt so real. Same with Ember, you just establish this connection with Rebeccas characters that is unlike many other books I have read. Over the past year I have read more than 200 YA, New Adult, and contemporary romance books, and only a very small amount have given me a depth of character like Rebecca Yarros where you just feel like they are a part of you.
The big reveal at the end……. omg……. the FEELS!!!!!
My Rating: 5 flipping fantastic stars!!!
