Her mother reacts very badly to the news and Ember has to be the strong one, for her little brother as well.
She hopes for the support of her boyfriend (since three years) who will betray her terribly... And then she meets Josh. Josh is her little brother's hockey trainer. He becomes her friend, her lover, her support, her everything... But he has a secret. Will it tear them apart?
The story is really well written. You immediately feel with Ember. You get pulled into the story and hold your breath until the last page.
A very nice read.
Enjoy the read MBTM

Ember Howard is likable from the first page. She is a relatable young woman whose world is dealt a shattering blow. A military brat all her life, she and her family understand the risks involved when a loved one is overseas, but no one ever sees it coming. And when three knocks at Ember’s door arrive too early one morning, she knows nothing will ever be the same. Her father was killed overseas and now Ember is left with a family in pieces and she is the only one strong enough to hold them together.
Yarros has an incredible way of weaving vivid scenes with concrete details. She does what only the best author’s can do—grounds the reader in the world she has created to the point where we’re no longer reading a book, but living another life. And Ember’s is one worth falling into.
The scenes in which Ember deals with the loss of her father are as much heart-wrenching as they are eye-opening. Readers get a taste of the real effects of war—not from a television screen or from the lips of a reporter who has never left the United States—but from the perspective of the family. It is close and real and raw, with such authenticity that, as Ember takes stuttered breaths, readers carry the weight with her as opposed to being a bystander.
Ember is a strong female character who inherits the care-taker role for her family when her mother mentally checks out after losing the love of her life. Ember is selfless, giving up the life she knew and stepping into a new world where she is the only one who can save her family. There isn’t a second for her to focus on her own grief, but she’s fine with it. She doesn’t need anyone to save her. Or so she thinks.
Enter Josh Walker—Ember’s little brother’s incredibly sexy hockey coach. He’s in high demand among the lady-goers of the hockey world, but he only has eyes for Ember, and is willing to be whatever she needs to get through the days. Friend. Lover. Confidante. Josh supports her when she doesn’t realize she needs it, makes her laugh when she never thinks she will again, and ignites a fire inside her she was sure was frozen forever. And just when Ember thinks she is finally pulling the broken pieces of herself together, a secret is unveiled that is so world-shaking, she may not recover this time.
The chemistry between Ember and Josh is undeniable and their interaction is downright addicting. Their easy give and take is effortless and Yarros gives us a natural character dynamic that doesn’t feel forced. These two characters come together because their meant to, not because their circumstances have forced them to, and the obstacles in their path are a true testament to Yarros’ ability to create tension so painfully exquisite readers won’t want to put the book down.
This novel has a ton of heart—enough to make readers cry, laugh, and squeal with excitement—but there is an equal amount of heat. The passion between Ember and Josh is so flame worthy it’ll have readers panting for more.
FULL MEASURES is a novel that burrows deep in your heart and stays there, with characters who you find yourself missing, and a love you’ll want to revisit again and again.
Ember's life is falling apart. Her father was killed overseas where he worked as a military doctor. Her mother is falling apart. Her sister is acting out and on a bad path. The only thing she has left are her plans for the future, her best friend and her boyfriend. Until the night she finds out she has none of those things anymore either. But, she finds what she does have is Josh, the guy she's had a crush on forever, who has just walked back into her life and offers her the support and friendship she needs. Their friendship develops into something much more and everything is great, until Ember finds out Josh has been keeping a secret that threatens to ruin what they have.
I loved Ember. I felt sympathy for her because in the aftermath of her father's death, *everything* was going wrong for her. The people who were supposed to be there for her weren't. (Bad boyfriend, bad "friend.") She was so busy taking care of everyone else, she had no one to take care of her. She was so strong, but she still needed someone to lean on. Enter Josh. A hockey player and former "bad boy," he was an incredible friend to her when she needed someone most. He was sexy and swoony and so very supportive. The two of them were magical together. Their chemistry was intense. It about broke my heart when they started having trouble. They'd both been through so much and were so much better together than they were apart. I just needed them to see that. You know it's a good book and you've connected to the characters when you want to reach into the pages and shake some sense into them!
Everything about this book was absolutely gorgeous. The writing, the characters and their development, it was all perfect. This was so much more than a romance. Sure, that was a huge part of it, but it was about hopes and dreams, family and friendships, love and loss and second chances. It was unputdownable from page one. I fell in love with the characters and I felt everything they were going through. So many emotions – good, bad, and everything in between. It was sometimes sweet, sometimes sad, sometimes sexy and entirely hopeful. I was completely exhausted at the end, but I still found myself wanting more of these characters.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. All quotes come from the review copy and may differ from the final version.
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...
*Imagine gif of a girl's jaw dropping and drooling over a guy's hotness*
And Ember, the main character? Oh, I felt her pain. I felt her struggle!
*imagine cool gif of a gorgeous girl crying*
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!
The setup is very dramatic and emotional of course, and is well done. In the tragedy, we see December's strength as her family falls apart after the news. But she is not perfect at all, and we get to see that too. It is actually Josh who comes across as a little too perfect, but whatever. That added to the romance as he gives up his player ways on campus for one true love, and fights for that love no matter what else is happening.
Josh hints various times of not feeling worthy of December in the past and the present to some extent, and I wish that was made more clear why. His emotional growth as a man apparently happened in the years between when he knew December in high school and when they meet up again, and are not really included in the book. This is more her story, and their story together. More on him would have added a bit to the book for me, I think, though we got some.
It was a nice change in a new adult book that the trauma she is dealing with is not the typical trauma most NA books seem to take on (abuse, rape, etc). It is nice to see a new topic addressed, and I give huge points to the author for taking that on and addressing it in a realistic and emotional manner. I really loved this book, this author, and hope to read more by her in the future.
The writing is fluent, pacing good, story flows well. And it is not riddled with grammatical problems either. That's always nice, right? This is a polished work.
I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley for an honest review.
