Full Measures by Rebecca Yarros (Flight & Glory)
“She was aware. That’s why Mom refrained from opening the door. She knew he had passed away”.
Having spent two decades as an army brat, Ember Howard was well aware of the significance when soldiers appeared at her door. Their presence signaled that her father would never return home. However, what she didn’t anticipate was the overwhelming responsibility of singlehandedly taking care of her crumbling family as her mother spiraled into despair.
Then Josh Walker enters her life. A hockey star and her new next-door neighbor, he possesses hands that offer solace and protection whenever she needs it. With just a glance or a touch, he has the power to alleviate her pain. Despite her desire to shut off her emotions and bear the heartache alone, Ember cannot deny the depth of their connection.
But when Josh’s secret is revealed, their world shatters. Ember is faced with a difficult choice: Is he worth the risk that comes with loving a man who could leave her emotionally exposed and vulnerable?
