A new adult novel from Entangled’s Embrace imprint…
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.
Wow… This book took me completely by surprise. I was not expecting to love it this much and to this magnitude. Easily one of my top reads of the year! Josh Walker completely and totally owns my heart (but shares with other B.F.F.’s) ;)
December’s father is apart of the military and they haven’t heard from him in a while. That is until, they get the dreaded knock on the door to say that their father is not coming home. Stricken by grief, Ember’s mom has gone blank. She doesn’t speak, doesn’t move, doesn’t react at all. With their mother currently “out of the picture”, Ember moves back home to care for her siblings. Josh, who Ember has had a crush on for a long time, comes into the picture saving her from complete and total grief. But, this should be the job of her boyfriend, Riley… Josh and Ember start to get closer and closer the more they run into each other. Situations thrown at them that can’t be more than coincidental.
Let me quickly say that I LOVE the names chosen. December, April and August (Gus)… LOVED IT! Okay, let’s just say that everything about this book was perfection! I bawled my eyes in the ending and laughed at many parts. This book is a complete roller coaster complete with the 360’s, upside downs and everything in between. There is nothing bad to say about anything about the story or the author. I have completely fell in love with her writing, these characters and their story. I’m excited yet nervous to read the next two… I have fallen hard for Josh and I worry the other two won’t live up to that. But, I hear Grayson in the 3rd does for sure. ;)
HIGHLY recommended if you haven’t already read this!
