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.


“As I've come to expect from the pen of Rebecca Yarros, their journey is not plain sailing and you'll certainly need a supply of tissues to mop up the inevitable tears, but it is SO worth it!” --Pauline C., NetGalley

“Written with immense detail with a deep understanding of conflict and mental anguish, but yet still striving to see the beautiful side of life. Yarros’ writing shows clarity and empathy for both her characters and the reader.” --A Midlife Wife

“I started laughing out loud at the jokes, caught myself, and then had to look around to see if people thought I was crazy. It was that funny. Then I got to the heart wrenching parts and had tears running down my face. That is the mark of an exceptional book.” --Suzette P., Goodreads

“I spent a good bit of this book crying my eyes out so hard that I couldn't see my kindle screen. But there's also a good bit of humor and Finley is EVERYTHING!!” --Laura F., NetGalley

Wow! Just wow! This story really did a number on me. I found my heart racing so much through different parts of the book.” --Sue O., Goodreads

“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.” --Stephanie T., NetGalley

“*sigh* all the feels. I LOVED this book!” --Shirley Q., Goodreads

“Rebecca Yarros is an author I have come to expect engaging and emotional stories from, and The Reality of Everything delivers.” --Melena T., NetGalley

“Another romantic emotional roller coaster by Rebecca Yarros. I loved everything about this book. The story is great, it's equal part tragic and happy, it's romantic, and it has the characters you can root for and fall in love with. Basically, it's a whole package; a book that all romance lovers can enjoy.” --Fizza Y., Goodreads

“I’m going to tell you how I feel until you choose the hell that rips us apart, and even then, I’ll probably still tell you. What I feel for you isn’t quiet. It’s loud and inconvenient and demands to be said as often as possible.”

Be warned y'all: I do not have even a tiny smidge of chill over this book.

I am smitten.
I am blown away.
I am positively giddy.

The Flight & Glory series has been one of my all-time favorites. I was excited - if a little apprehensive - to "come home" to this series with Mor ...more

Take the money. Use it. Don’t just give it to charity or stick it in a bank account, Morgan. Spend it on something that brings you happiness. Use it to leave like you always planned. I just wish I were goi

Just to be upfront, this one will have triggers for women or men who have suffered the loss of a spouse or significant other.

This was my first title by Rebecca Yarros and I'm torn between needing to read everything she's ever written and needing a break because, wow.

I have said this before, and I am going to say it again, it is so much more harder to write a review for a book that I absolutely love, versus one I am not a fan of. It is easy to pin point what you don't like, but when you love one as much as I love this one, it is ridiculously hard ...more

It feels like a lifetime ago that I picked up the first Flight and Glory series and fell in love with Rebecca Yarros's writing. And I have read every book as she has written them.

In a distant past I read part 1 of the series in Dutch and I was not a fan of the translation. I loved the story itself, but the translation kept pulling me out of the story.

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.
