Review⇢ The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros

 

 

SYNOPSIS FROM AUTHORS WEBSITE⇣
Beckett,
If you’re reading this, well, you know the last-letter drill. You made it. I didn’t. Get off the guilt train, because I know if there was any chance you could have saved me, you would have.
I need one thing from you: get out of the army and get to Telluride.
My little sister Ella’s raising the twins alone. She’s too independent and won’t accept help easily, but she has lost our grandmother, our parents, and now me. It’s too much for anyone to endure. It’s not fair.
And here’s the kicker: there’s something else you don’t know that’s tearing her family apart. She’s going to need help.
So if I’m gone, that means I can’t be there for Ella. I can’t help them through this. But you can. So I’m begging you, as my best friend, go take care of my sister, my family.
Please don’t make her go through it alone.
Ryan

MY THOUGHTS⇣

 
Finally, my first five-star rating (not counting my re-read/listen of The Grace Year).   I was wondering if I'd become too jaded, too unfeeling, to really let a story get under my skin anymore.  This book not only got under my skin, it even made me cry, It was actually quite heartbreaking.  With everything that this woman had to through with her child, I couldn't help wondering what it would be like to go through all that with an ongoing pandemic added to the mix.

I had a few issues with the back and forth will they or won't they, between the Hero and Heroine...but Havoc (the retired military/rescue dog), plus Colt and Maisie (the twins) were such likable characters it was only a minimal hiccup for me.  Added to that the splendid narration by Teddy Hamilton and Jennifer Stark that was perfectly executed...and voila, my first five-star rating of 2020.  I really like Rebecca Yarros writing and storytelling finesse.  I think she has made my list of top 5 go-to Authors for Romance...which also includes Colleen Hoover, Emma Scott, Amy Harmon, and KA Tucker.

Review: Great and Precious Things by Rebecca Yarros
Great and Precious Things - Rebecca Yarros

Syno

 

How do you define yourself when others have already decided who you are?

Six years ago, when Camden Daniels came back from war without his younger brother, no one in the small town of Alba, Colorado, would forgive him—especially his father. He left, swearing never to return.

But a desperate message from his father brings it all back. The betrayal. The pain. And the need to go home again. But home is where the one person he still loves is waiting. Willow. The one woman he can never have. Because there are secrets buried in Alba that are best left in the dark.

If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she’s always loved him, and always will…

Great and Precious Things is a heart-wrenching story about family, betrayal, and ultimately how far we're willing to go on behalf of those who need us most.

 

 

My Thoughts

 

 

***I received a free copy from the publisher and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!***

 

 

I've been meaning to read a book by Rebbeca Yarros for a while now and I finally had the chance. I'm so glad I did, because I loved everything about this book. I loved the writing, the story and the vivid and wonderful world and characters Yarros created. Pretty early on in the book you just have the feeling like you’re right there with the rest of the characters. I loved that we get the dual POV, that we always knew what both Camden and Willow are up to and thinking, well as much as we are supposed to. The story is both, heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. I cried, I swooned and I even giggled and laughed. It is not only about loss, betrayal and lost love, but also about second chances, healing and accepting not only other but yourself and your past. I loved both charterers and their real world struggles, so true and honest and how each are coping in different ways. Overall, I simply loved this book and I’m looking forward to reading more books by her. I rate it 5★

Kudos for a well-written series, Rebecca Yarros.
Beyond What is Given - Rebecca Yarros

 

๏ ๏ ๏  Book Blurb ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
Lt. Grayson Masters is focused on graduating the Apache helicopter course, and the last thing he needs is his gorgeous new roommate Samantha Fitzgerald distracting him. While her smart mouth and free spirit are irresistibly irritating, he can’t deny their off-the-charts chemistry, no matter how hard he tries.

Having just been expelled from college, Sam has no business digging for Grayson’s secrets while she’s hiding her own, but that doesn’t stop her from trying to tear down his walls. Each barrier she busts through drops one of her own, though, and she’s not prepared for the truth: another woman laid claim to Grayson’s heart long ago.

Falling in love is something neither Grayson nor Sam can afford, and when that line is crossed and secrets are exposed, they’ll learn that sometimes it’s the answered prayers that will put you through hell.
 
 
 
 

 

๏ ๏ ๏  My Review ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
I don't read a lot of NA lately, because it's really difficult to find something original that doesn't seem like contrived BS.  This is one of the good ones, in fact, I've liked the whole series so far.  Great characters, with real-life issues finding a way to be with one another.  Plus bonus points for integrating the characters from previous books in the series so well, I loved seeing how Josh, Ember, Paisley, and Jagger are doing, also. There were even some twists at the end that I didn't see coming.
