The Wickedcoolflight Crew
Two years after the man she loved was killed in Afghanistan, Morgan Bartley is trying to put the pieces of her life back together. The reno on her dilapidated beach house in the Outer Banks might be just the distraction she needs to keep her debilitating anxiety attacks at bay and begin to heal her heart…if she can ignore the ridiculously handsome guy next door.
At twenty-eight, single-dad Jackson Montgomery’s life revolves around his five-year-old daughter and his job as a search-and-rescue pilot for the coast guard. He’s no stranger to saving a damsel in distress, and though his gorgeous new neighbor is clearly in distress, she’s no damsel. She’s stubborn as hell with walls a mile thick, and the dog tags hanging from her rearview mirror give him a pretty good clue as to why.
It doesn’t matter that their attraction is undeniable—she swore she’d never fall for another pilot, let alone a military man. There are some wounds time can’t heal, and some fears too consuming to conquer.
She’s a barely breathing heartbreak on the edge of recovery.
He’s a crash waiting to happen.
Together they could have it all…if they can endure the coming storm.
NICUnurse’s Review of The Reality of Everything by Rebecca Yarros
It’s no secret that I’m a long time fan of Rebecca Yarros. Since February of 2014, I’ve quite literally devoured everything she’s ever written, beginning with Full Measures. The quality of her writing is top-notch each and every time. She may not crank out 10 books in a year, but everything that she publishes is ALWAYS worth the wait. Rebecca Yarros writes emotional, angsty books, so if you’re looking for something lighthearted, her books are not going to be for you.
The Reality of Everything is book 5 in the Flight & Glory series, a contemporary military romance series. All of the books can be read as stand-alone titles, but I think you’d be missing out on amazing reads, and some storyline crossovers, if you don’t start with book 1, Full Measures.
This book is Morgan’s story, and those of us that have loved the series from the beginning have been clamoring for this book for forever. And The Reality of Everything was quite literally…everything!
What I loved about the book: Ummm pretty much every word on every page! There’s a reason Rebecca Yarros is at the top of my automatic 1-click list. Her words and her stories never fail to resonate with me. The characters: Morgan…let’s just say that those still waters run deep. She’s fierce and one of a kind, but we all have our breaking point. I shed a lot of tears for her in this story. Jackson is now rivaling Josh Walker as my top book boyfriend, because who doesn’t love a sexy single dad with a hero complex?! The rest of the Flight & Glory gang…always good to catch up with old favorites. The storyline: Morgan needed something of her own, and she definitely got it in this book in more than one way. And man, when she finally let loose, I nearly stood up and cheered!
NICUnurse’s Rating: Honestly, I don’t think you can go wrong with any Rebecca Yarros book unless you’re looking for a light-hearted rom-com. I’ve no doubt she could rock that genre, but she excels at the swoony, sexy, angsty, emotional reads. I had to wait to read this book until I knew I wasn’t going to need to put it down for any length of time because I’m always sucked in from the first page to the very end when I pick up one of her books. The Reality of Everything didn’t fail to do just that. And the emotional rollercoaster, even though expected, had me laughing, cringing, crying, and sighing over and over again. And I’ve no doubt I’ll ride that ride several times over in the future. It’s hard not to say more because that would delve into spoiler territory, and I hate spoilers. This story is way too good to spoil any bit of it, so just suffice it to say that it’s worth your time and your money.
I give The Reality of Everything by Rebecca Yarros 5 out of 5 propellers!
