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.



"As addicting as it is heart-breakingly real, this is one New Adult book you won't want to miss. It has plenty of hotness, pain, and joy. Don't hesitate to grab it now!" --Jen McLaughlin, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author.
"Full Measures tests the boundaries of love and loss. It will grip you, hold tight, and never leave you." ~ Corinne Michaels, USA Today Bestselling Author
"Beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. It takes hope and fear and jumbles it up until you're left questioning everything. I felt every part of Ember's pain and then when life starts to feel like it's settling around her...BAM! Love is a journey and Ember and Josh have to drift through their muddy waters. I cried because the writing took me the depths of my fears. The words wrapped around my heart and took hold. I'm so happy I had the privilege of reading such a beautiful story of love, loss, and survival." ~ Schmexy Girl Book Blog

Rebecca Yarros is one of those authors I’ve been meaning to read for the longest time, but never had. I’m so glad I picked up the audio book of Full Measures and finally gave her a try. I enjoyed this book lots and will definitely be reading more books in this series!

I spent the last 20ish% in sobbing bits. I felt every part of this beautiful, heart moving story.

Just wow.
I never expected so much from this book.

★★★★ 4 stars!

Full Measures was a sweet, fun, emotional NA story that I really enjoyed reading. It took be by surprise since I wasn't expecting it to bring out so many emotions while reading it and the "army" subject definitely made it stand out from many other typical new adult romance novels.

4.5 Spectacular Debut Stars!

I do a re-read with my favorite books and this is my first book narrated by Carly Robins. I’m spoiled with duel POV’s narrations. I would love to have listened to Josh’s POV, but Carly did a good job. You can sense her emotions completely. There are some dramatic points during the read and oh boy yo ...more

I just wanted to take a second to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read FULL MEASURES! It's amazing to see my debut novel getting such a warm response! I'm just... giddy!!!!!

Thank you!!!

This was just awesome. The author really depicted grief in a realistic yet touching way that hit close to home.

Ember was a great character and of course Josh was to die for. Very well written, with a lot of depth, I loved every minute of it.

Well I gotta say I absolutely did not expect that when I picked up this book. I thought it would be your typical new adult story with a little bit of emotion thrown in.

I want to preface this by saying, all those other books in my 'sob-fest' shelf—they don't hold a candle to this.

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Rebecca Yarros

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.
