“…an epic love story…”
Reviewed by Cara M.
Rebecca Yarros’ Full Measure is an emotional roller coaster you won’t want to get off!
You’ll feel the character’s pain, happiness, need. You’ll enjoy their ups and downs, and be rooting for them to find their way to each other and overcome their fears by the end.
Ember Howard’s life was turned upside down the instant soldier’s knocked on her door and informed her that her father wasn’t coming home. Her mother’s grief was nearly debilitating and Ember had to pull together her family, be the strong one. In doing so, she made a vow she would never be in her mother’s shoes. Of course, she never had to worry about that since Josh Walker is a hockey star—the same one she’d drooled after in high school—and the only one one she wants!
Josh has a way of easing Ember’s pain and confusion by just being there for her. And he’s determined to be the one she leans on in her time of need. Only he knows his secrets will tear them apart…
Ms. Yarros’ story had me bawling like a baby as the story opens. The emotion she wrote into those opening scenes and several more throughout the book quickly made this a spectacular read. You’re constantly trying to figure out what Josh is hiding from Ember, while at the same time shouting at Ember to get her head out of her rear because Josh is perfect…almost too good to be true. Fabulously sexy and sweet, you can overlook his loose womanizing ways because once he has Ember’s attention he doesn’t stray from his purpose of being her one and only. I truly felt like this was an epic love story being told and one I wouldn’t mind to get a peek at in the future. Maybe in April’s story?
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.
