Publisher's Summary

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 he has 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.

    "Very emotional Story!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Full Measures the most enjoyable?

    If you are in the mood for emotional story, you MUST listen to this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    December was my favorite, I understood her feelings.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The beginning of the story, how the author got into the pain they the entire family was going through it was very touching. I loved the end, no cliffhanger.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It's hard to say, I don't want to be a spoiler alert!

    I haven't cried this much in I don't know when. Not enough happy to counteract the sad. Good story just not my cup of tea.

    Story
    "A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS, yet STRONG Heroine storyline"
    If you could sum up Full Measures in three words, what would they be?

    Emotional, Tear-jerker, Endearing


    What did you like best about this story?

    Josh Walker! I love the Hero. Sometimes you want to fall for the nice guy, the guy that is always there, and the guy that can bring a smile to your face. Yarros created such a sexy, yet lovable Hero. I couldn’t get enough of him. I loved how he was always there for Ember, but he didn’t let Ember jerk him around. He had this crazy balance of sweet and sexy confident male.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the beginning. I loved reading Ember’s emotions while she found out her father died. You just feel for her. You feel her pain, her emotions and even confusion. I love how Josh and Ember first meet and she didn’t have money to buy her own birthday cake! I was so sad and cute at the same time. I loved it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Overall, it was a moving book. I think Josh and Ember’s dynamics were pretty intense, which makes sense because they re-met under a stressful situation. I loved how put together the book was. Every scene and every moment was there for a reason. I liked how the beginning kind of connected with the ending. Totally blew my mind. It was perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    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 you felt for her. You can feel Ember through Carly and it just made the audio listening experience better.

    Complete Book Review:

    5 Endearing Stars

    Reading Full Measures was like finding a lost gem in a sea of stones. It was light, but sad, amazing and not what I expected

    On Ember’s twentieth birthday she lost her Dad and her world was turned upside down. Her mom is too distraught to function, her younger teenager sister is rebelling like crazy and her seven year old brother needs someone to take care of him. Despite Ember’s pain, she steps up to take care of her family. It’s not easy for Ember to take on her Mom and Dad’s shoes, she’s still in school, still has friends and still has a boyfriend, but Josh Walker, Ember’s old high school crush, seems to always be there to help her when she’s having a rough day.

    Oh MY GOD, I LOVE A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS, yet STRONG Heroine story line!

    Ember

    I adore Ember. She’s not your typical Heroine. When she finds out her dad dies, you just FEEL FOR HER! You want to wrap her in your arms and tell her that everything is going to be okay. Ember is just heart-broken, but she keeps herself together for the sake of the family. Her brother wants her to get a cake for her birthday and so Ember goes to the store and buys cake. She forgets her wallet and Josh is there to pay for her.

    Josh

    I really liked Josh. Full Measures is told from Ember’s POV, but Josh has the perfect balance of Hero, Jerk and Cave-man tendencies. I didn’t want him to be super perfect and he wasn’t. He is just so sweet and caring and is always there for Ember.

    Overall

    Towards the second half of the book, it shifts and it everything just gets super intense. I was going through so many emotions, but in a very good way. I couldn’t get enough and I needed to see how everything was going to play out!


    I LOVE the way Full Measures was written because there were NO FLASHBACKS! I got the story from start to finish and I was emotional from start to finish. I also loved the pace. There’s a lot that happens in Full Measures and a lot of character development. As Ember struggles to take care of her family, she slowly grows and starts finding herself too.

    I even love the side characters. I loved reading the Mom’s pain, the brother’s adorableness and even her sister who was always annoying, but was addictive to read about. I think Full Measures worked out so well for me because Yarros made it believable and emotional. I felt like I was there. I felt like I was reading Ember’s dynamics. I felt the chemistry and banter between Josh and Ember and it was perfect!

    THIS IS A MUST READ!

    "Very touching and emotional listen!"

    From the very beginning this book had me fighting tears and felt the pain this family was going through with every chapter i listened too. Ember is such a strong young lady and Josh a rock when she needs him the most. Sweet love story that brings the book to a close.

    I recommend this book for a heart felt listen.

    Excellent book. Left me wanting more. The emotional struggles were real in this one, and I admit I had to fight back a few years of my own. I highly recommend this audio book.

    "Not bad. Military centric without being to much."

    not bad. i enjoyed the read. I felt for the characters in their loss and trying to get on with their lives and there was definite chemistry between the two main characters.
    I just felt like the ending was a bit of a non event. I know it was intended to really pack a punch but it just didnt really work. everything gets tied up neatly in a pretty bow to finish it off but i cant help feeling it could have been a lot better.
