It’s here! I’m beyond excited that Full Measures, by Rebecca Yarros, is finally available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Wait. You didn’t write Full Measures. No, no I didn’t. In fact, I even have a free review copy, so why should I be so excited that this book is available?
BECAUSE It’s AWESOME! And I want to buy up a few copies. In fact, heck, it’s so awesome that this week I’m giving away THREE copies of this amazing novel by Rebecca Yarros.
Here is the blurb:
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.
My review: 5 Stars!
Full Measures is a beautiful new adult novel that dives into the life of a young woman who’s grown up in a military family. Now, I’m not a reviewer that ruins plots. I’m not going to talk through what happens when and how I reacted. But I can say this, the love interest, Josh, is all man. Ugh, duh, he’s the male love interest. Clearly, but allow me to explain. All too often I run into “guys” in new adult novels that never take those steps to really develop into a man that as a character I respect.
I totally respect Josh. Heck, he even made me appreciate a sport that I will never understand (especially the cost that goes into it). Can you guess what sport? Hockey! Yeah, I’m Minnesotan, but I just don’t get Hockey. It’s so darn expensive and who wants to spend more time out on ice? Not me. Anyway, another reason I love him is he makes me go all…
And Ember, the main character? Oh, I felt her pain. I felt her struggle!
Yarros instantly (I mean INSTANTLY. Don’t read the first chapter of this book in public if you are a crier!) drew me in with her ability to capture Ember’s voice and spirit in her beautiful writing.
I highly recommend buying this book! Keep in mind, this is a new adult novel (geared for 17+), not a young adult novel. I only offer this reminder because I’m a young adult author and don’t want to throw my younger readers at a novel that’s geared for an older audience. But once they grow up and hit seventeen, you bet they should read and buy this novel for your nook or kindle!
