Summary:
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.
 

My review:
Once again Rebecca Yarros' wrote an impeccable love story. If you read my review on Eyes Turned Skyward, you know how much I enjoyed reading it. This one didn't disappoint me at all. Let me just say that I'm so happy I finally found a book where there's a love story between a hockey player and a normal girl. LIKE I'VE BEEN DYING TO READ ONE for such a longtime! I tried to write one but I always end up not finishing my story.

 I loved loved loved this book as much as I loved Eyes Turned Skyward. I can't choose between the both of them because I loved and enjoyed both equally. 

This reminds me a little bit of Ignite by Lily Paradis where the main female character had to take care of her siblings. I found Gus' really adorable and he loves hockey which was really awesome! I liked how their names' are months: December, August, April, June. So cute!

I liked most of the characters like Sam, Jagger, their grandma... but I have to say that I hated Riley since the very beginning, I just had a feeling that he was going to be an ass. I also find it really sad that Ember had to lose her dad on her birthday. I can't imagine how she must've felt.


"The fire you have within you is impossible to kill. The first breath you take when you're free of all of this, it will come roaring back. That's what is so impossibly beautiful about you."

OMG! Joshua Walker. Hands down. He was the nicest person ever! Such a gentleman! My goodness!(Fangirl mode) haha. He and Ember(December) were so cute together. This book will definitely give you butterflies in your stomach and will make you squeal! 

Again, I highly HIGHLY recommend this book. Especially to readers who love hockey! (:



About the author:
Rebecca Yarros is a hopeless romantic and lover of all things chocolate, coffee, and Paleo. In addition to being a mom, military wife, and blogger, she can never choose between Young Adult and New Adult fiction, so she writes both. She’s a graduate of Troy University, where she studied European history and English, but still holds out hope for an acceptance letter to Hogwarts. Her blog, The Only Girl Among Boys, has been voted the Top Military Mom Blog the last two years, and celebrates the complex issues surrounding the military life she adores.

When she’s not writing, she’s tying on hockey skates for her kids, or sneaking in some guitar time. She is madly in love with her army-aviator husband of eleven years, and they’re currently stationed in Upstate NY with their gaggle of rambunctious kiddos and snoring English Bulldog, but she would always rather be home in Colorado.
