About the Book:
There are some debts you can’t repay.
Josh Walker is loyal, reckless, and every girl’s dream. But he only has eyes for December Howard, the girl he’s craved since his high school hockey days. Together they have survived grief, the military, distance, and time as they’ve fought for stolen weekends between his post at Ft. Rucker and her college at Vanderbilt. Now that Josh is a medevac pilot and Ember is headed toward graduation, they’re moving on—and in—together.
Ember never wanted the Army life, but loving Josh means accepting whatever the army dictates—even when that means saying goodbye as Josh heads to Afghanistan, a country that nearly killed him once before and that took her father. But filling their last days together with love, passion, and plans for their future doesn’t temper Ember’s fear, and if there’s one thing she’s learned from her father’s death, it’s that there are some obstacles even love can’t conquer.
Flight school is over.
This is war.

I have to be honest here, I’m not going to spend time telling you about the book. Read the synopsis and you’ll understand what it’s all about. I’d rather share with you the importance of Josh and Ember’s story.
I’m really not sure how to describe this book to you. Normally, words like wonderful, heartfelt, gut-wrenching, and amazing might do…but, in this case, they just don’t seem like quite enough. The picture I need to paint for you goes so much deeper than that. This isn’t just a simple story of life and love in the military, it’s a book that makes you question your choices, your convictions, your loyalty, and how hard you’d be willing to fight to keep your dreams alive. This book brought me to tears and shredded my heart. But, most of all, it showed me a reality that I didn’t know enough about…and it made me grateful for those strong men and women who stay behind and fight the wars, not on the battlefield, but in their hearts and their souls…alone in their own homes.
Maybe it’s because Ms. Yarros lives this life, or maybe it’s because she’s a wonderful writer (I’m betting on it being a little bit of both) but she managed to pick me up and place me dead center in this breathtakingly beautiful tale of friendship, commitment, guilt, and unconditional love. I struggled with the characters’ choices, I yelled at them in my mind to fight with all their might, with their full hearts and souls, and I wept with them when the battle seemed endless. They felt real and I wanted to bear their sorrow.
For those few hours I spent between these pages, I was part of this fictional world. But in the days, months and years to come, I will be keenly aware and more appreciative of the sacrifices so many have made for me in the real world…thanks to Josh, Ember, and Ms. Yarros.
I pushed my chair out and reached for her, lifting her tiny, curved frame into my lap. Her head tucked beneath my chin, and she curled into me, fitting right where she was always meant to be. My arms closed around her. “We have a month.”
“It’s not long enough.” Her fingers gripped my shirt like she could keep me here if she just held on tight enough. God, what I wouldn’t have given to stay with her.
“Forever isn’t long enough for us, December, but that’s what we’re going to have. You and I have never chosen the easy path. This is just another hurdle.” I rubbed my chin over her soft hair and tried to soak in every detail of holding her—the sweet way she smelled, the smooth texture of her skin beneath my hands.
She leaned back in my arms and cupped my face. “I can’t lose you.” Her voice broke, and tears pooled in her eyes.
I’d never hated myself more than I did in that moment. She’d made it through a nightmare no one should have to face, and I was about to ask her to chance that fire again. My breath hitched, barely passing the lump in my throat. “You won’t. It would take something a hell of a lot stronger than a war to keep me from you.”
I sealed that promise with a kiss, tasting her fear and desperation as she responded. She opened underneath me, and I fused my mouth to hers, surrendering to the heat between us to pull us through this moment. There was nothing hotter or sweeter in this world than kissing December, feeling her go soft and pliant.
We’d fought so fucking hard to get here, to be together. This wasn’t fair, and we both knew it. But we also both knew it didn’t matter. Fair wasn’t exactly in the U.S. Army vocabulary.
I retreated just enough to whisper against her lips, “I’ll come home. I swear it.”
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. They finally can call Colorado home along with their gaggle of rambunctious kiddos and snoring English Bulldog.
